MY JEWELLERY COLLECTION | PART TWO

June 11, 2017


Now I've shared my dreamy Bloody Mary Metal necklace with you, it's time to move onto my next piece. This ones only little but means a lot, I wear it with pride nearly every day, although I've been trying out fancy costume-like earrings recently so it's been replaced for a few days here and there. No matter how adventurous I'm feeling I'll always return back to this one eventually, it's an easy piece to keep in and makes a simple statement - I'm a feminist!

I was inspired by an event I went to a few months back for the UCL Homeless Period Project. The night featured performances and art work relating to periods, vagina's, underwear and all things female. This encouraged me to get my own piece to show the world I'm a proud feminist, it just so happens to make a cute accessory too.

I found this dainty earring hiding in the deep depths of Depop, once you sift through all of the hash tagged bullshit you can find some decent stuff. Sometimes it's not worth the hassle, as eBay usually holds the same wholesale items on there without the pain of dealing with a non-professional seller. But if you're looking for something cheap, head over to Depop. If you're looking for independent sellers and something a little different, then I've done some searching for you and picked out some cool-girl pieces you'll need to have to show that you're a bad ass feminist!

My favourite pair of earrings I found belong to Ashley Williams, who's created THESE  sex symbol earrings that are covered in Czech crystal. They happen to be clip on though, which reminds me of being five and putting on my grandmas pair as a cute joke to get some laughs in. But, If you've got the budget and are after some serious statement earrings, these are for you!

Next up I found my earring but in necklace form. I actually put this in my shopping basket and went to the checkout with my card in hand ready to pass my money over. I then remembered I love my Ziggy necklace too much to take off right now, and the earring I have is cute enough. Maybe if I'm wanting to mix it up I will purchase THIS Venus symbol necklace from Cat Fight Backan online store dedicated to feminist jewellery and accessories. She's also got earrings like mine on her store, along with dozens of other dreamy products I need to get my hands on.









Finally, I had a browse on one of my favourite sites which holds anything your heart so desires - Etsy. This store forever blows me away with the amount of art it holds. It's the best place to go if you want something unique and independent! I found THIS beautiful Frida Kahlo pin that needs to go straight on my leather jacket. I also found THIS silver boobie ring, which is incredibly hilarious. The only down side to Etsy is the fact it mainly ships from America, so it can up the price massively. It's totally worth it though if it means I can get this little boob on my finger...

I hope this has helped you find the girl power bling you needed in your life! I know it's made me want to buy more! If you've got any online or in-store recommendations for unique pieces then let me know. I'm always on the hunt for new bits to add to my collection.

PHOTODIARY | NORWAY

June 07, 2017


It's been nearly two weeks since being back from a holiday I won't be forgetting anytime soon, a cruise around the Fjord Islands in Norway. If you're geographically challenged like me, then you might not know what that is, so let me help you out. 'A Fjord is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created by glacial erosion' - thanks wikipedia. Basically, we went on a beautiful scenic cruise of towns within Norway such as Flam, Geiranger and Stavanger which are surrounded by mountains, trees and glaciers. It was honestly one of the most amazing places I've ever been! So, with that I give you my camera-roll of photographs taken on my trusty iPhone 7+. See them on Instagram here!

MY JEWELLERY COLLECTION | PART ONE

June 01, 2017


I for one, cannot live without my jewellery. If I go a day without it, I feel completely naked. I worry endlessly throughout the day about where I left my rings, or how bare my neck looks without my necklace. It's something that makes me feel whole and comfortable, also something I get asked frequently on. Having my chest exposed, thanks to low buttoned shirts, helps show off my silver I suppose.

I thought I'd update you on the latest pieces in my collection, as the last time I posted about it was years ago and I've mixed things up since then. I'll be posting in three parts, starting with my most loved piece - the Ziggy Stardust necklace. This was a gift from my Father who has spoilt me with many beautiful jewels in the recent years for Chrismas and birthdays. Having spent years helping fund my shopping habit with gift cards and a few notes, he decided to buy me sentimental items I could keep forever, now that I'm an adult it only seems right. With the help of my obvious hinting, he picked out this Ziggy Stardust silver from my favourite brand, Bloody Mary Metal - which is now his go-to for gifts. With Bowie being a huge part of my teenage years, it only seemed fitting to have a constant reminder hanging around my neck, as if my crap tattoo wasn't enough!












SHIRT - MARC JACOBS
NECKLACE - BLOODY MARY METAL




I own a few necklaces from Bloody Mary Metal, but the love I have for this one makes me not want to switch it up as often as I should. If I can face taking this one off, I'll be sure to show you the rest of charms...
