Jewellery Haul – Gold & Pastels

Posting on a Wednesday night?! What is this! You lucky lot…

I have some pictures for you to drool over today. NO, noooo not Ryan Gosling (not my personal cup of tea, I’m more of a Chris Hemsworth kinda woman)…but BEAUTIFUL JEWELS JEWELS.

In preparation for a friend’s wedding, I had my dress, my shoes, blah blah. The thing I didn’t have was any nice/suitable jewellery. Cue me fretting in Accessorise trying to find some jewellery that would look like it was bought this year.

My dress was from Lipsy; it was a red/orange floral print strappy dress with a rigid net skirt using the same print (it felt wonderfully swishy). The jewellery I picked to go with it was quite simple – a statement necklace, some band bracelets and a set of gorgeous rings!

necklace

This necklace is lovely! It sits quite high on the neck as it isn’t a long chain, but it is a statement necklace that is quite pretty and dainty at the same time. Though I’m praying none of these stones fall out…

I also grabbed a set of rings – don’t worry, I paid for them – which were a mix of straight gold bands and twisted, with really pretty pastel coloured gems. I stacked a few of these on top of each other for a laid back/boho look.

bracelet

Lastly, I picked up these beautiful band bracelets. These are slightly bendy so all you have to do is bend it slightly and you can get them on your wrist. The jewelled ends either side are so pretty, and although I bought them for the wedding I have already been getting lots of wear out of them.

What are your favourite shops for buying jewellery from?

By the way this post isn’t sponsored I just love Accessorise :p

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?!

Thanks for reading,

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.

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:

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!

#ColourMeMarch – What outfit would I wear to the Cheltenham Races?!

Hello Everyone!

I was recently lucky enough to be accepted into the etailPR Blogger Network and stumbled upon their campaign for the Cheltenham Races Ladies Day which is on the 11th March. Although I’m unable to attend the event itself I love an excuse for a bit of online browsing 🙂 and so I’ve put together an outfit that looks off into the distance, to Spring!

I really can’t wait for spring and for the weather to get warmer, so the outfit that I’ve put together would be perfect for those days when it’s sunny and you are in the mood to wear some bright colours!

Dress from River Island, Bag from Topshop, Necklace from Accessorise and Shoes from New Look!

I went for a coral strapless lace dress (£40 from River Island), as this colour stands out from the crowd and the way that the lace falls below the hem is really beautiful. I have always loved lace dresses like this, that aren’t too restricting like the long sleeve versions you can sometimes get. This would also be very comfortable if you are standing by the racecourse cheering on your horse! (GO JIMMY GO, I imagine there’s a jockey somewhere called Jimmy).

I’m most definitely not a hat person, this statement stretches to fascinators too so instead to accessorise I’ve gone for a statement coral and gold necklace (£12 from Accessorise), and a simple black clutch bag (£28 from Topshop) that can have the handle looped around the wrist. This means once again when cheering on your horse, you can wave your arms in the ayer like you just don’t cayer, without spilling your 101 beauty ‘essentials’ all over the grass.

Finally, these slingback cream court shoes (£17.99 from New Look) are probably not the most practical part of the outfit but damn would they look good. Just hope that it doesn’t rain the night before…and to combat the grass you can get some of those heel add ons that appeared in Dragons Den that let you walk on grass without sinking! Genius!

What do you think to this outfit? 🙂

If you fancy entering this competition, all you need to do is upload a picture of your chosen outfit  and share it via Twitter. Make sure to use #ColourMeMarch and upload it before 1.50pm on Cheltenham Races Ladies Day, 11th March. Also don’t forget you can follow @ColourMeMarch to keep up to date and see all the other entries! Make your entry direct to the website here.

What would you wear?

Mini Haul #4 – Miss Selfridge, Benefit, Accessorise

Here is a mini haul for you :), to give you some inspiration for shopping (call me an enabler). It had been a while since I went clothes shopping (I think) and I picked up a few key pieces to take me from winter into spring, as well as a few extra things!

Firstly I went to Miss Selfridge, and bought this lovely chenille jumper in a blushed pink colour:

SO SOFT
SO SOFT

Here is a close up so you can see JUST HOW SOFT IT IS:

The jumper is cropped, so this moves me nicely onto my next purchase which was from River Island. I bought two long vest tops, so that I could wear one under this jumper without looking like a weird child:

I was also on the look out for some low heeled, black ankle boots and headed to the most suitable place, which was New Look. They do great quality shoes and they are always so reasonably priced! I think these were £24.99, so not too bad and I know they will last me a long time. I loved these boots the moment I saw them, the gold buckles make them stand out without being too blingy:

Next up was jewellery, so I popped to the holy grail which is Accessorise and had a sneaky look in the up to 70% off section. I picked up this gorgeous necklace which I actually think goes quite well with the jumper I picked up from Miss Selfridge! I really like that it’s not too blingy, but stands out and looks quite elegant. My mum’s opinion is the standard ‘it’s not blingy enough’ but half the things she wears a magpie would turn its nose up at. This was £5, down from £19! Bargain!

I bought another statement necklace from Dorothy Perkins that is a much more beady statement necklace, but will look great with a plain top or dress. I like how it looks like it’s from Egypt, with all the Cleopatra type colours. I’ve been a right floozy with my buying recently, buying only one thing from each shop!

IMG_2945

The last thing I bought was a bit of a treat, I had nipped into Boots and had been on the hunt for a good highlighter (either powder or cream form). I had been eyeing up the Benefit ‘Girl Meets Pearl’ highlighter for a while and decided to take the plunge and pick it up. I have been using this dabbed onto the high points of my cheekbones, it’s really subtle and adds a slightly golden sheen. I get the feeling this is going to last me a long time too, as a couple of clicks gives you enough for one application!
