My Obsession with Dainty Jewellery

Hello Everyone!

I have an obsession with dainty jewellery, particularly necklaces and earrings. I think there’s something so beautiful about a slim, delicate chain with a small, simple pendant. On asian skin as well, bright golds and silvers look really pretty!

The shops that I think are best for dainty, delicate jewellery are probably the usual suspects: Accessorize, H & M, and Topshop! I think gold is my favourite style, with silver and copper coming a close second. I have a picked a selection of my MOST favourite pieces for you to peruse below:

handm

This necklace is my most recent purchase, from H & M (I think it was around £4.99). This is quite a pale coppery colour, and it has a really thin chain and a simple horse shoe and circle design. The only thing I get annoyed about is untangling it!

turkeynecklace

This is one of my favourites :) this necklace I bought when I went to Turkey with my sister. The shop was quite big, but it was run by a very old man with a white beard and shuffly sandals on. This is a REALLY thin gold ball style chain, with a bright blue and silver round pendant. The chain is so delicate that I have to be quite careful with it as I’m always scared it’ll snap!

topshop

I’m so pleased with how this photo turned out! This necklace is a beautiful chain with triangular amethyst stones. I like how there are 5 (an odd number always looks very satisfying) and the chain again is very dainty and thin. I love the bright purple of the stones against the coppery/gold chain.

accessorizez

This last necklace is from Accessorise, part of their ‘Z’ collection. The jewellery from the ‘Z’ range is a bit more expensive, but the pieces are usually so beautiful and dainty that I think it’s definitely worth it. The stones on this necklace are like a light aqua blue, so set against the bright almost yellowy gold it’s really striking. Something about it makes me think of Greece, they carry that style through to the packaging and font in the range design so I love that all the pieces are designed within the same style.

What is your favourite from the bunch? Or are you the opposite and loving in your face blingy necklaces and earrings?!

Battle of the Texturising Sprays

My hair is short, so doing things to make it look different is quite hard.

I tend to straighten it almost every day, at the weekend I give it a bit of a rest and it’s usually scraped up with a few pins in it to cure my mullet syndrome (not all of the hair fit in so I get a little tail at the bottom).

One thing I like to use is a texturising spray once it is straightened, which gives my hair more oomph and volume. I have two to review for you today, one of which is the spray I tend to reach for more often and the other one has it’s pros but it disappoints in the performance factor.

Round 1…ready…FIGHT!!

battleofthetexture

The L’Oréal #TXT Texture Styling spray is designed to add volume without the backcombing. This is a thin tall bottle so it feels like you are still getting quite a lot of product which is great.

It sprays nicely and it smells so so lovely! The smell is what makes me keep using this, as unfortunately it doesn’t really do what it says on the bottle. At first, when you spray this into your hair and foof it up a bit your hair looks great, but it definitely doesn’t last very long.

I usually use this by lifting up the top section of my hair all around my head and spraying this into the root and the length all the way around. This way the top layer of hair doesn’t get too much product in it and it still holds the texture (if you’re using the right spray :)).

The other spray is called BlowPro (curious name, I know). This spray is much more pricey than the L’Oréal one (that one’s only £3.79 whereas the BlowPro was around £10 (click here for a link but I’m not sure if Superdrug sell it anymore :()

The BlowPro spray gives out a much finer mist, which I think I prefer. What I love about this one in particular is that I can spray it in in the morning, go to work and look in the mirror and I can see that it’s still working it’s magic :).

BLOWPRO

SO, at the end of that battle the Blow Pro Textstyle Texturising Spray is the winner (applauds).

The claim on the bottle is accurate, so I’m pleased. It’s just a shame it’s almost finished now…

Have you used any great texturising sprays?

The Mini Haul is back…and it’s bigger

This time my mini haul isn’t so mini…the things I picked up I love, it was one of those days shopping where I go into a shop, immediately bin off the majority of clothes and accessories and find what I like really quickly. Love days like that!

The things I bought were from H & M (where I usually find it quite hit and miss), Accessorise, Topshop and the Body Shop.

MINIHAUL

First, I’ll start off with Accessorise! These earrings I bought are really beautiful, I went through around 10 pictures of them to show on here because the camera just doesn’t do them justice.

LILYFLORALEARRINGS

They are gold plated, part of the Z for Accessorise range (Lily Floral earrings, £10) and they feature a beautiful flowery design with a pearlescent light blue stone. They are a little bit dangly so look great if your hair is up (which I can just about do with mine now it’s grown a bit!). I know I’ll be wearing these a lot as they are very dainty but really really pretty.

Next up is H & M, where I picked up this gorgeous berry/plum coloured jacket. It was £14.99 and I think that’s pretty good for a smart jacket that can take you from Summer into Autumn as easy as anything. It is collarless, which I usually don’t like, but I think paired with some black jeans and a simple top it will look splendid :).

BERRYJACKET

I also paid The Body Shop a visit for a sneaky skincare purchase, all because of Kaushal from Kaushal Beauty!  In some of her recent beauty videos, she’s been using a Vitamin E Face Mist before make up to help keep skin hydrated. I have quite dry skin, so I thought I’d give it a go on top of or before my other moisturiser to keep my skin hydrated throughout the hot summer days. One surprise for me was the rosewater in the formula. Rosewater always reminds me of my sisters because they hate the smell/taste/all of it! Hahaha. For me, the Rosewater is great because it actually calms my skin and reduces the chance of any redness.

VitaminEfacemist

 

Next I popped into Forever 21 and the only thing I picked up was this brilliant nightie, and there’s not much I need to say about this, just look at it. It was £10, a complete bargain and JUST LOOK AT THE FACE ON THAT CHEESE:

nightie

FINALLY, I bought this amazing handbag from Topshop (£40) which is a simple black handbag with short and a long handle. I love that this has a long handle too (you can take it off if you don’t want it) and it has three compartments. The inside has a central zip area with two sections either side that close with a magnetic button.  I think this handbag will last me a long time, so I’m very happy with this purchase :D.

That concludes my mini/medium/reasonable haul!

Let me know if you’ve hauled anything recently and send me the links to your posts if you have :).

NEWSFLASH – I am on 198 Blog Lovin’ followers! Thanks you guys, it means a lot and please follow if you like the cut of my jib. I just thought of this phrase and thought I’d try it. #don’tjudge

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Balmain Inspired Make Up Tutorial

Happy Saturday everyone!

This week in particular feels like it’s been a bloody long one, not particularly sure why (maybe because I been workin’ so hard ;)). The treat for your eyes this morning is an inspired tutorial which came about when I saw that Kendall and Kylie Jenner had been the stars of the newest Balmain fashion campaign.

I love the style of it: dark, moody, navy blues and glittery silvers. Right up my street! I’ve created a simpler more pared down look so that you can actually wear this outside and not have people think you are a Dementor.

I’d love it if you could take a  look (it’s only short, imagine my joy when it uploaded quicker) and please leave a like if you enjoyed it! If you have a YT account and want to see more like this, please also subscribe.

BREAKING NEWS: I have also installed the Pin It hover over on my images! If you see anything that you’d love to have on a Pinterest Board you can now Pin directly from my blog! Ahhhh technology 😀

Here are a few more pictures so you can see the make up close up:

Hope you all have a lovely Saturday!

Beauty Whys…

BEAUTYWHYS

Have you ever had a REALLY annoying thing happen to you when doing your hair or make up, which gets you thinking, ‘WHAI DIS HAPUN TO MEH’!!?

I am here to show you that:

1) It is ok to curse.

2) It happens to everyone (and it is a big deal hahaha)

and finally,

3) You gotta get through dis (thank you Daniel Bedingfield).

Here we go! *takes deep breath*

WHY NUMBER ONE: 

Stepping out of your house without applying powder. 

This happened to me this morning, I sat in my car and looked in the little slidey mirror and watched as a shine brighter than anything appeared across my T Zone. Thanks man.

WHY NUMBER TWO:

Applying your false eyelashes directly onto your own making them impossible to take off.

OMG this hurts so bad. They looked so nice on! Why have they melted themselves into my eyelash roots…I didnae go near any fire!

WHY NUMBER THREE: 

You go through the moisturise/blow your nose cycle around 20 times. 

Dry skinned sisters will know my feels for this one. You moisturise, your skin looks bloomin’ lovely. Your eyes start to water of their own accord. This makes your nose run. You carry on and put foundation/concealer on. You cave and blow your nose. DRY PATCH REAPPEARS. Repeat.

WHY NUMBER FOUR: 

You get all up close to do your eyebrows, pull away and realise it’s given birth to thousands of teeny tiny hairs underneath your arch. 

Close up, in your mirror your eyebrows are on fleek, they look the bomb and all other types of metaphors/similes. Then you look at yourself at arms length in a normal mirror and you realise you really should have plucked/threaded/chainsawed those bad boys. DAMMIT.

WHY NUMBER FIVE:

You use your Tangle Teezer on wet hair, works like a dream. You then run your COMB through the same hair and holy shit why does that hurt so much!

This again happened to me today. La la la all well and good using my trusty Purple Glittery Tangle Teezer. Then all of a sudden you switch to a comb for your parting and BOOM a thousand broken hairs. This is why when you go Tangle Teezer, you never go back. (What are you talking about, of course you can use it in that context).

I hope you enjoyed my Beauty Why’s! Please like and comment if you can think of your own or you have been through these and feel my pain :)

Lots of love to you all,

ALSO I am almost at 200 Blog Lovin’ followers! I want to say thank you to all of you who have followed and to those of you who haven’t, please check out my profile by clicking Blog Lovin’ below! Ahh right this minute I’m on 188 followers!!!!! EEEK

Trendspotting – Ear Climbers from Karma Seven

So, a while ago I was introduced to a body jewellery brand called Karma Se7en.They sell all types of body jewellery but as the only piercings I have are my ears (done in India when I was very little) I love taking a look at their earrings and accessories.

I was blown away by the quality of their products (take a look at my previous post here) and they have started to bring out lots of new designs, including ear climbers and ear cuffs which really caught my eye! Today I’ll be reviewing two of their ear cuffs that I think are perfect for an evening out, a wedding or a party.

karma2

 

The quality of these products is really second to none, they are made from silver so they are slightly more expensive than any you would get from say New Look or Dorothy Perkins. Being made from silver, I think this helps the earrings/ear cuffs lie right and it means they will last you forever!

Not only that, but they offer buy one get one free on all jewellery as well! Has got me considering getting my nose pierced for reals now…

The first item I am loving is the Crystal Vine Ear Climber Earrings which are really beautiful. They are £20.95, but are very sturdy and fit really snugly into the ear piercing. They are so bright and shiny that they are really striking, especially if you have dark hair like I do. They have a longer thin bar that you can bend out to put the earring on, once the bar is inside your piercing you can push it back to keep it in place. These are so easy to wear and stay in place surprisingly well (trust me if they can last me running up the stairs then that’s pretty damn good).

crystalvineearclimber

 

The second set of ear climbers I received were the Crystal Diamond Climber Ear Cuffs. I think these are my favourite out of the two :) as these are really beautiful. I love the way these frame the ear, at first I was a bit worried about putting them on because of the thin bar (looked a bit scary of first) but they aren’t complicated to wear at all.

I love these earrings, I think they will be great to wear to a wedding as they’ll really stand out.

Have a lovely day everyone! :)
