Posted on April 22, 2014

Hi Guys!

I hope you’ve had a fab Easter and bank holiday, back to the grindstone now hey! (At least it’s not too long till the next bank holiday!) I have a lovely piece of jewellery to show you today – I was completely over the moon last week when Urraca Vintage offered to send me one of their amazing Kaleidoscope bracelets to share with you guys…

Firstly here’s a bit more info about Urraca Vintage –

Each unique piece of Urraca jewellery has a story to tell….

We take timeless, beautiful and interesting details from vintage and antique jewellery dating from the 1800´s through to the 1990´s and juxtapose them to create pieces reborn with show stopping charisma and contemporary appeal while still reflecting the history and multitude of eras from which they were born.

Much of our time is spent searching for treasured items and each piece has been hand picked for its character, style and versatilty. We then transform these little gems and give them a new lease of life to create mesmerising ensembles that will seduce those that seek individuality.

The beauty of jewellery is that it can compliment the body as well as enrich an outfit whatever the occasion. The Urraca range embraces this with a selection of unisex statement body chains for those attention grabbing moments, intricate necklaces for every day wear, our ´Kaleidoscope´range of eye catching bracelets as well as whole host of other stand out from the crowd accessories.

irridescent packaging

The package arrived in a printed cardboard box and inside was the bracelet wrapped in some awesome iridescent wrapping paper, and an original vintage black and white photo with the Urraca Vintage logo printed on the back, this was such a lovely personal touch 🙂 And not to go into it too deeply, but this photo of a mother and her children enjoying the sunshine was once someone’s memory… maybe once treasured, maybe lost, or just forgotten about. I find it very thought provoking.

That’s enough about the packaging, just look at the bracelet! How gorgeous is this!? You know I’m a sucker for anything holographic or shiny so this is right up my street!! Here is my exact bracelet if you’d like to check it out.

The stone catches the light and reflects different colours depending on how you look at it, I’m mesmerised!! I definitely have my eye on Urraca’s vintage jewellery now, the Cascading Necklace is gorgeous!

What do you think? Do you love this bracelet as much as I do!?  xxx

My Gorgeous Argento Bracelet

Posted on April 16, 2014

Hi Guys!

Today I have the prettiest charm bracelet to show off to you! Argento kindly sent me this gorgeous Charmed T Bar Carrier Bracelet, in sterling silver. It also came with a free disco ball charm! Bling bling!! 😀

This is kind of a late Mothers Day treat for myself! I chose a Charmed Love Love Love Locket to add to the bracelet as I thought I could put pictures of my little boy and husband in there (aww!) Clever me got some photos printed but they all came out too big! So rather than squeeze half a face in there I thought I’d just show you the bracelet as it is 🙂

The ‘Charmed’ charms a just fantastic, Argento hold a massive selection so there’s something for everyone, and none of them cost over £30 which is amazing!

See how dinky this is! I love that it’s a proper locket that opens up! I’ll update this post soon when I manage to sort the photos out!

Do you have any special jewellery? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

NOTD and Suay Design Jewellery Giveaway!

Another nails post, I know, I know, I can’t help myself! I love painting my nails, after all the miserable weather we’ve been having it really cheers me up, and after all the stress of wedding planning it’s a good excuse to sit down and relax!

As you can probably tell I like to mix up the colours on my nails – why use one polish when you can use all the colours of the rainbow!?

Well, maybe just three today, I think they go really well together!

I <3 Fierce Jewellery @Topshop!

Posted on February 19, 2013

Ok I have a thing about fierce jewellery, the bigger the studs and the pointier the spikes the better. If it looks like it’ll take your eye out then I’ll love it!

I thought I’d share a few of my favourite pieces that Topshop has to offer at the moment.

Prices range from arond £7.50 for a ring, up to £30 for some of the bigger necklaces. Not exactly cheap, but they won’t break the bank either!

I took advantage of Topshop’s sale earlier this year and stocked up on a ton of bracelets! (and a couple of necklaces) I spent just over £30 and got £110 worth of jewellery!

YAY!!! 😀
