My Milestone Jewellery

Before I get properly going with this post, I’d just like to start with a disclaimer. I’m not trying to show off or brag in this post – I’ve been rifling through my jewellery box recently for other posts, and thought it might be nice to show you some of the more meaningful jewellery I’ve been given over the years. Everything in this post has been an extremely generous gift for a very special occasion, and I hope you enjoy looking at these little pieces of my life, rather than thinking I’m a terrible show-off!

Right, shall we get on?

Starting at the beginning with my first grown up piece of jewellery: this gorgeous necklace was a present from my parents on my 18th birthday. It’s an extremely simple piece of jewellery, just a teeny diamond, plainly set, and I just think it’s the most elegant thing in the world! My taste in jewellery tends towards the simpler side, and this couldn’t suit me more. Continue reading

Cherry Diva Jewellery Haul

Over the Easter weekend, I discovered a new online shop, Cherry Diva Jewellery. They do a great range of statement necklaces and cute, dainty little pieces, and I just had to grab a few bits for myself! The prices are ridiculously cheap – these three pieces were £8.50 all together, but they’re surprisingly high quality pieces, so I would definitely recommend checking them out!

My Fairytale Woodland Jewellery

I’ve had these gorgeous earrings for a little while now, but I’ve never actually worn them in a post. They were made by a friend of mine (who has an Etsy store, Katie and Gabriel, but is currently on hiatus) and I absolutely love the nod to fairytale they add to any outfit: one says “Once upon a time”, and the other “Happily Ever After”. For a huge fairytale nerd like me, these are absolutely perfect! They inspired me to round up a few other fairytale inspired pieces of jewellery to show you how I add a little magic to my everyday life. Continue reading

Jewel Candles!

I was recently contacted by JewelCandle asking if I’d like to review their candles, my answer to which was a resounding YES! I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I absolutely love candles, especially in the autumn, and especially when they’ve got a secret, like these gorgeous ones from JewelCandle!

I was so excited when I opened up my very heavy parcel to see not one, not two, but three little packages! I’m only going to show you two in this post, though – can you guess why? (Answer is at the bottom of the post) Continue reading

Adorned with Owls!

It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love owls. I especially love owl jewellery, so the trends from the last couple of years have really suited me!

Here’s what I’m currently loving to wear, strigiform-wise…

P1000942The white owl on a long chain was from Dorothy Perkins, I think, and the little sparkly necklace is from New Look. The feathery owl, on a long chain, is from Accessorize, and was a present from my mum along with a matching brooch. The owl-head studs, which I also have with turquoise eyes, you can buy on Amazon, and the bangle I bought from a local market stall.

What do you think of the owl jewellery trend? Is it over and done with? I’m really hoping not, I’ve enjoyed being able to pick up cute owl pretties on the high street!

Outfit of the Day: 22nd September

It is officially autumn, hooray. I adore autumn. I like puddles and autumn colours and jumpers and the heating coming on and the start of the good TV programmes and hot chocolate and everything.

I always used to hate dressing for autumn, though. I had no idea how to layer, and just threw a big bulky hoody over the same boring pair of black jeans or grey cord miniskirt and black tights. No fun at all.

But I understand autumn now – and I have a whole new wardrobe to show it 🙂

Here’s what I wore yesterday, on a crisp but sunny autumn day out in town with my boyfriend:

Cropped for red eye. This was the nicest photo of my outfit, but my face was terrifying!

Okay, so that is a cord miniskirt and black tights, but it’s a blue cord miniskirt! Both the jumper and skirt are from H&M, which have pretty much provided my whole autumn wardrobe. I have this skirt in two colours (blue and orange) and want to buy the burgundy one, which they didn’t have in my size (boo), and this jumper in blue and burgundy, and a similar cable knit jumper in grey and turquoise.

I’m wearing my Accessorize ring, to feature in a jewellery post next week, hopefully, and my TARDIS necklace, which you can’t see ’cause I forgot to pull it out of the jumper. That looks like this:

Excuse the cleavage!

My lovely TARDIS was a Christmas present from Boyfriend, and I wear it almost every day  🙂

I also wore my incredible sand-coloured suede boots, which I forgot to get a picture of, but might edit in tomorrow. My feet ache like crazy today!

Are you excited to start layering up for autumn? I can’t wait for it to be scarf weather, I’m looking forward to breaking those out of the wardrobe!
