Fashion: Autumn 2016 Accessories Update – Kurt Geiger / Skinnydip / ASOS

Posted on October 3, 2016

autumn-accessories-update-2016

Hi Guys!

It’s that time of year again where it’s starting to get cooler, the nights are drawing in and we’re all looking forward to Halloween! Yes Autumn is upon us, and I thought it was about time I did a little accessories update…

carvela-rink-boots

The pièce de résistance of my latest bunch of goodies is without doubt my brand new Rink boots by Carvela Comfort at Kurt Geiger. I LOVE Kurt Geiger shoes and boots, and yes I know they can be on the expensive side but they’re well worth it. I’ve pretty much been living in a pair of glittery Carvela flats until they wore out, so now winter is looming, I’ve been on the hunt for some more season-appropriate footwear.

I was so pleased when I came across the Carvela Comfort range – I hadn’t even realised it existed until I started hunting around the site. It basically offers all the fabulous styling of the Carvela brand, whilst making comfort a priority.

carvela-rink-boots-review

The gorgeous Rink Boots just jumped out at me – they’re made of soft black suede, with an awesome gunmetal grey sparkly glitter heel. I love that the heel is quite low (I can’t walk in high heels) making the boots look more dressy whilst still being comfortable.

And just look at this gorgeous scarf from Bianca Elgar! I’m a big fan of oversized scarves and wear them every autumn and winter – but silk scarves are new to me. I feel like this is more sophisticated than other scarves I have, and it feels gorgeous to wear. I can’t wait to pair this with some outfits!

nali-bag-with-stickers

I also treated myself to a new Nali Bag from ASOS. When it comes to bags, I like something spacious (to hold all my precious things) and I also like a grab handle as well as a long strap – so you have plenty of options you know! This bag by Nali stood out to me because it pretty much ticked all the boxes for me, and it was also in the sale – bonus!

I then happened to come across some awesome stickers on the Skinnydip site, and thought they’d go perfectly with my new bag! If you’re a fan of customising your clothes and accessories, you can see all Skinnydip’s awesome stickers, badges and pins here.

skinnydip-nope-bag

I also picked up this awesome Nope Hannah bag from Skinnydip while I was looking around the site. I love it so much!

pink-cat-pencil-case

And yes I know it’s technically not a fashion accessory, but I had to include my new Paperchase cat pencil case from ASOS! It’s just so cute!

And finally I also picked up this sweet little Primark Necklace when I was last in London. Its rose gold coloured with grey sparkly triangles – and it was only £3.00!

I’d love to hear how you’ve been updating your wardrobe for autumn? I  hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Christmas Gifts Ideas for Jewellery Lovers

Posted on December 16, 2015

gift-ideas-for-jewellery-lovers

Hi Guys!

When it comes to jewellery, I really am a magpie. I started collecting 70’s and 80’s jewellery many years ago, and though I don’t pick any vintage pieces up these days, I still have to look at jewellery whenever I go shopping, I’m like a moth to a flame. I’ve put together a few ideas for Christmas jewellery gifts today, they’re all affordable and definitely won’t break the bank, and some are from well known brands while some are lesser known. I hope you enjoy!

jewellery-gifts

silver-bunny-ring-holder

Ok let’s start with this Silver Bunny Ring Holder (£8.95), isn’t it just the sweetest thing? The perfect gift for anyone that likes to swap between different rings on a regular basis, this Bunny Ring Holder will keep rings safe and sound whilst looking gorgeous displayed on any dressing table. I love that it’s a functional item whilst being quirky yet chic – oh and under a tenner too!

Glittering-Double-Wrap-Bracelet

Or what about this lovely Glittering Double Wrap Bracelet (£19.95) – this bracelet is just so pretty, and in neutral colours so it’s easy to wear too. It wraps around the wrist twice, featuring two different types of beads so it actually looks like two bracelets. It’s made of leather so it’s hard wearing, and will look fantastic as a casual or dressed up accessory.

Rio-Grande-Lavender-Quartz-Ring

I’m in love with this stunning Rio Grande Lavender Quartz Ring (£65.00) it’s such an unusual colour and catches the light beautifully. The stone is massive – and it’s such a gorgeous shape for a cocktail ring. I just need an event to go to so I can wear it now! 🙂

Freya-Necklace-in-Sterling-Silver

Or if you prefer necklaces, what about this Freya Necklace in Sterling Silver (£45.00). This necklace is simple, beautiful and yet somewhat unusual. It features two organic shapes, inspired by dried up autumn leaves, which I think is a lovely concept.

ted-baker-arrow-earrings

And lastly, I just had to include some rose gold! These Ted Baker Arrow Small Drop Earrings (£25.00) are really dainty and pretty, and a complete bargain at only £25.00! Ted Baker produce some of the most gorgeous clothing and gifts, but I hadn’t really taken much notice of their jewellery range before – I’m so glad I have now though as I’ve added a few more pieces to my Christmas list! Definitely check out their jewellery range if you’re a fan of TB!

I’d love to hear if any of these pieces have caught your eye? Or if there’s any jewellery on your Christmas list this year?

Posted on August 17, 2014

beetle-necklace

Hi Guys!

I’ve just got a quick post for you today, most of you will probably know that I completely love jewellery – as in costume jewellery, not diamonds or anything (I wish!). But I’ve been trying to cut back on my purchases as I have a habit of ‘just picking up’ pretty shiny things that catch my eye when I’m at the shops. I’d been really good for aaaages up until last week… but it was the best bargain ever! So now I simply have to show you my brand new gorgeous necklace from Love My Apparel! This is the Night Scarab Pendant Necklace by Day Birger et Mikkelson, it was a complete bargain in the sale and I’m so glad I snapped it up!

I have a real thing about bugs so this is right up my street! Did you know I got married at a Zoo and got to hold giant millipedes and giant hissing cockroaches for some fun wedding photos!? Yep it’s true 😀

FYI the Love My Apparel sale is still on, and you can grab some great designer bargains there so make sure you take a look!

I’d love to hear what you think? Do you love this necklace as much as I do? xxx

Lily Kamper | Jewellery Spotlight

Posted on July 17, 2014

lily-kamper-necklace

Hi Guys!

I just have a quick post for you today – I’ve come across some amazing jewellery and had to share it with you! Lily Kamper’s AW14 collection is simply stunning. It’s futuristic, it’s unusual, it’s luxe, and oh so colourful – it ticks all the boxes for me! Lily creates pieces with classic marble and contemporary dyed perspex to produce a striking, futuristic trademark look.

Inspired by the iridescent outer glow of the moon, photographs of the Earth at night and elaborate marble stairways, Lily has created a range that’s as curious as it is cutting edge. Lily’s hand dyed columns have been updated with some gorgeous colour ways including; matte emerald green with cracked black marbling, purple mixed with grey, yellow and midnight blue.

The range is fabulously diverse, with a considered collection of bracelets and rings as well as Lily’s column pendants in a range of shapes and sizes, from tiny to more robust, to create a collection that’s varied yet wearable. I have to say I really can’t get enough of this collection! Please let me know what you think! xxx

BIG Birthday Wishlist!!

Posted on May 2, 2014

Hi Guys!

So my BIG birthday is coming up in June, I will be… gulp… 30! Eeeeek! I am slightly scared of hitting this milestone I must say. I’m really not sure where the last 10 years have disappeared to! So I’ve decided, to ease my distress and calm my nerves I’ve put together a little wish list of some fabulous things I would absolutely love for my birthday (hint hint Mr K…) So here goes…

Vita Fede Ultra Mini Titan Ring – a pretty reasonable £89.12. I’m in love with Vita Fede jewellery, so this ring would be absolutely perfect!

Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Bag £157.44. Slightly on the pricey side but not too ridiculous, this bag is right up my street! I already have a Rebecca Mincoff but it’s just plain black, I absolutely love the stud detail on this one.

River Island Baby Pink Leather Biker Jacket £120. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to have it. I’m a sucker for leather jackets and also anything pink! (This is also available in baby blue too)

NARS Narsissist Eye Palette $79. Ahh just look at the colours!! I also have a soft spot for amazing palettes. Fingers crossed for this one!

Nars-2014-Eye-Narsissist-Palette

Kat Von D Ladybird True Romance Palette $36. I’m desperate to try some of Kat’s range and the colours in this palette really stood out to me as they’re quite unusual. Kat Von D Lock It Foundation would also be great!

Kat-Von-D-Ladybird-True-Romance-Eyeshadow-Palette-Summer-2013

Urban Decay Ocho Loco 24/7 Pencil Set £40. Ok £40 is a lot of money for eyeliner pencils, but I am a complete eyeliner whore… and you do get eight here so it’s only £5 each, which is a complete bargain and totally worth it!

EOS Limited Edition Spring Lip Balm Duo £10.50. I have a couple of EOS lip balms and I love them, I use them all the time and I think the convenient packaging is just perfect. There’s nothing worse than sticking your finger in a lip balm pot and getting sticky!

So that’s about it for now. I’m sure there’s loads of other things that I can’t think of at the moment too!

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!! 😀

argento bracelet

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 🙂

argento charms

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!

argento locket

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
