Initial Necklace

Despite my love of statement jewellery, for my birthday I was after something a little more understated.

Having had initial necklaces in the past, I wanted something similar but a little more sophisticated. When I stumbled across this Harry Rocks piece with personalised engraved disk, I was very excited. Having chosen the specifics, I opted for a matte, silver disk with gold engraving. The contrast of the two metallics together looks beautiful and I am very much an advocate of supporting small, up and coming businesses.

The product is hand engraved and comes in a pretty box. I would definitely recommend Harry Rocks for quality and unique jewellery.

A Spring Investment

For a light, spring coat the trench coat is the perfect purchase. Instantly chic and perfect for the transition between seasons, I am excited to start wearing mine.

Unfortunately my budget doesn't stretch to the Burberry original but I was extremely smug when I picked this one up in the Zara children's section. At a fraction of the adult price, being little definitely has its perks!

Although London continues to be ridiculously cold-hibernation seems to be the only option-trench coats can be worn year after year; the military look is timeless. Perfect your look with a slick of red lipstick and some heeled ankle boots...

A Touch of Leopard Print

A touch of leopard print is my staple way to transform a plain outfit. Animal print is timeless and continuously on trend so when I saw this scarf in H and M I nabbed it.

Neon is going to be huge for SS13 and teaming bright colours with contrasting monochrome prints is proving to be a winning combination. Although I am trying to be careful with my money I treated myself to this Maybelline nail varnish in shade Pow Green. It comes out in an amazing neon shade when applied and is about as close as I get to statement nsils.

Still a huge fan of stacking rings and over the knuckle styles. Mine were a bargain from Asos.

Enjoy! X

Easter Weekend

In between gorging chocolate and drinking champagne I have managed to get a couple of outfit pics on my beloved new iPhone. This look is a combination of all my favourite outfit essentials: faux fur, statement necklace and animal print.

Monochrome is very much here to stay for SS13 but to add a splash of colour to the look I am wearing my fave Super Soft Super Skinnies in berry. For summer I am on the hunt for a baggy, high waisted pair of jeans in a light denim but unfortunately the Topshop 'mum' jeans always sell out! In the meantime I will be scanning the charity shops in hope of finding a bargain.

Happy Easter!
