a few of my favourite things.

 Alexa, play "Gold" by Spandau Ballet...


I noticed the other day that I've been building quite a collection of gold jewellery and fun accessories, so I thought I would share my favourites with you and link pieces where I can. 


ACCESSORIES

I received this Oliver Bonas bracelet as a gift from the Wingfield PR team as a goodbye present at the end of my internship. I've not worn a bangle in years, but this piece is so light that I sometimes forget I have it on, until I'm complimented on it. Such a sweet gift. 

Gold bobby pins are the most inexpensive way of jazzing up your hairstyles and subtly taking part in the hair clip craze that seems to have taken over Instagram. 'Teen me' is also screaming that scrunchies have come back as a thing. I struggled to make any accessory work in my hair. The struggle was most definitely real. We thank God for hair extensions, Youtube tutorials and developed knowledge of how to handle my own hair...yes 'Teen me', it gets better 🙏🏽.




EARRINGS

I've turned into quite the Magpie when it comes to gold earrings, they're just so shiny and beautiful. You cant help but feel like your Sade in pair of gold hoops and these statement shell drop earrings make me feel like I've got my life all the way together; so chic, so luxe.

NECKLACES

If you remember my posts from back in the day, you will remember that I was obsessed with chunky statement necklaces. The bigger the better, I wanted everyone to see I was wearing a necklace. Back then dainty chains did not appeal to me and it frustrated me how they would get lost behind your tops neckline and become a tangled mess. Now I can't think of anything better than layering gold chains with varying lengths - that look becomes a statement in itself. 





RINGS & DIY

I love the look of stacked rings and I've been looking for a signet ring for a while, but they always seem so big. So while rooting around my old jewellery stash I came across an ASOS ring from many years ago and inspiration struck! I took my black nail varnish and painted the stone. Voila!

The chunkier "rings" that you see are actually cuff earrings that I've repurposed. I was inspired by jewellery brand Wolf Circus, who sell these beautiful solid, thick gold signet rings that are just ugghhh!

Sometimes its handy to take a look at the items you already have and consider if you could give it a new leese of life before spending money on something new.

The pinky ring is actually my baby ring. Never fit me then, doesn't fit me now lol but I like stubbornly stuffing it onto my pinky finger. On my more sensible days, I put it on a chain.LOL

london fashion week AW19 street style.

It's time for some street talk...

So another season of London Fashion Week may be over, but lets take a minute to check out what the street stylers were wearing...


Jen Eleto - The Senior Fashion & Culture Editor for Pause Magazine took my breath away in head to toe neon green snake print. Can you believe its all Pretty Little Thing

Flora Macdonald Johnston - Clearly this is a lesson in the art of layering 101. The Financial Times Junior Fashion Editor took 4 separate pieces and created a polished look. And those Baum und Pferdgarten plaid pants...🔥

Victoria Magrath - Dressed in Victoria Beckham with Jimmy Choo retro glasses, the top blogger otherwise known as "In The Frow" has me swooning over the pops of orange in this chic look. I also need her personalised Dior book tote she was sporting here. 

The Tripletsss - If you grew up with a sibling you may have been subjected to dressing like each other thanks to your mum. It was cute but also sometimes cringe too. However these sibling bloggers make it work. I cant get over the suit print and their cute S'uvimol mini waist bags they've instead worn round their necks tucked under the lapels of their blazers. Also its nice that they're each wearing different colour polo neck jumpers. Love! 

Alanna Doherty - This lewkkk is fun, chic and serving all the colour! Big gorgeous hair✔️ Sheepskin &OtherStories jacket ✔️and Showu red and pink striped jumpsuit✔️✔️✔️

Cheri - More explosions of pink. This influencer is killing it in this quirky DB Berdan jumpsuit and platform trainers.

Left to right: Sherri Webster, Hannah Whiting, Bec Watkinson & Alicia Roddy - Friends that slaaaaaay together! This level of co-ordination goes beyond being aesthetically pleasing. Neon green, neutrals and chunky trainers, whats not to love!?  

Nina Suess - Its kind of hard not to covet this Influencer's Fendi bag and hat. Also check out her ruched trousers from Preen By Thornton Bregazzi.

Jessica Lawrence - Social Media Manager of YOU Magazine nails this Weekday green denim co-ord. The Zara snake print bucket hat is a nice finishing touch.

Aya & Ami Suzuki - The Japanese musical duo are serving more fashion twinspiration. Green is literally everywhere!!! 

Alero - Is there anything cuter than "mummy and me" goals? Matching sunglasses and denim jackets over a neutral outfit, this UK blogger has nailed it with her lil man.

Ellie - Otherwise know as Slipintostyle on IG, is giving me spring vibes in this opulent leather trench by Nynne and can we talk about this Mae Cassidy bag! Check out the close up here.

Leonie Hanne - This influencers look is colour blocking pastel heaven. First off the Dior glasses yes! Second off the split in those trousers ✅

Gabriele GZimailaite & Justine - Lithuanian bloggers are killing it in buttery leather trench coats and baker boy hats. 

Wvrio - Honourable mention goes to Mario. The ingenuity in this outfit really caught my attention. How awesome is his plaid jacket and plum red socks with sandals...super fly. Lets hear it for the boy!
