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

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!

Procrasti-shopping!

I’ve had a few occasions this week to pop into the shops with some of my birthday money, and I’ve found some gorgeous little bargains in Primark. I also treated myself to something from my wishlist as a bit of a present for getting through a horrible week at uni last week.

Firstly, I found these two little dresses, for £13 each… A white lace pinafore dress (size 12), and a watercolour floral dress with an entirely cut-out back (size 10).

I actually bought the size 12 of the watercolour dress first of all, but when I got it home it looked terrible! Because it was a bit too big, the edges of the cut-out back gapped away from my skin, and there was too much room in the bust (yes, too much!), so it wasn’t very flattering. I swapped it the next day for the size 10, which fit much better, and it looks really cute!

You know how sometimes in Primark you just find one mysterious item of clothing on its own, on a different rack, and you can never find any others? This skirt caught my eye for exactly that reason, and luckily the billy-no-mates was a size 10! For £8, I think this was a good find – it’s high-waisted, and comes to about mid-thigh on me. It was really hard to get a nice photo of, but it’s very pretty, and will hopefully feature in an outfit post soon.

P1000778Last but not least, I finally got my hands on this lovely bee necklace from my spending ban wishlist! For £6, this would make a really sweet gift. It’s a short necklace – the bee sits in the hollow of my neck, if I do it up on the shortest link – but that’s my favourite length for necklaces, so I adore it!

Have you found any gems in Primark lately? There’s so much of their spring fashion I really like – what do you think of my finds?
