Thought I'd do a quick post to show you some of the jewellery I've been wearing this week.. if anyone's remotely interested!

By the way, the nail varnish is another of the Accessorize ones from my last post, if you were wondering :)

I never knew a little blue Lego ring would cause so much disruption & controversy to my school day! Seriously, I don't know if ANY of my rings have ever gained that much attention before. The kids could not stop talking/asking about it. Bearing in mind, my 'kids' are 14-16 years old, not littluns!

I wore it the same day, I wore this one:

This one's a new one from the asos sale. I love it. I've wanted a star shape ring of some sort for ages, as I felt it was something I was lacking in my ring collection(!) - so when I spotted this in the sale, it had to be mine :)
I've shown you both pics so you can see quite how 3D it is!

The next day I wore:

Both of which are pretty old, & if you've been reading my blog for a while, you may well have seen before..

Next was:

A H&M classic that everyone & their Mum probably owns :)


My 'empowerment' ring. I didn't know that's what it was when I got it - I just liked it! & still do, it's simple & easy to wear, so seems to return to my finger quite often..

I also bought some new rings too (honestly, I have a problem!) - including:

Got these two from Morrisons, of all places!
I noticed a while ago that there was a stand of jewellery now, amongst all the general supermarket stuff, but have been trying to avoid it - however when I saw big half price stickers, I couldn't resist any more & these are what I came away with!

Also got this, in the Dorothy Perkins sale:

Love it - white was a colour much underrepresented in my ring collection, so that obviously needed to be rectified!
This was one of the concessions at DPS - possible Ribbon & Asher..?

Ok - there are more, namely a number more from the asos sale - but I'm not sure I'm happy with the pics of 'em, so they can wait for today.

I'll stick with the jewellery theme & show you a couple of the necklaces I've been wearing instead:

Love my seahorse necklace - he's so cute :) He was from the Men's section of asos. Quite a while ago now. I wear him quite a lot. I'm surprised actually that he hasn't featured on my blog already!

This is gorgeous in real life. Another purchase from the Dorothy Perkins sale - bargain at only £2 - reduced from £12.50! Definitely couldn't leave it behind for that price!

Last one for today:

Bought this AGES ago, but then forgot all about it. (I'm a buggar for that, tis shameful..)
I really like it though, so now I've refound it, I'll definitely be wearing it a lot! It's really simple, but a bit different. I did notice though, that I rattled a bit as I moved around wearing it, because all the pieces are separate, so move a bit - if that makes sense..?! Anyway, that definitely won't put me off wearing it!

Right, just a quick chat & then I'll be off..

I finished work on Tuesday, for five weeks. Yes, five weeks. Bonus of working in a school! So, although I've been pretty rubbish recently at commenting/updating/replying to comments, I will definitely be around a bit more & trying harder at keeping up with those things :)

I'm still hoping to do a giveaway when I get to 250 followers. I was very close to that total, but then I keep losing people (presumably because I don't post regularly enough).. But we'll see!

I am going to get my arse in gear & attempt to get a blog sale organised. When I look around my room (& in fact, my whole house), I realise just how many clothes I have actually got - majority of which have NEVER been worn. Again, shameful. So yeah, hopefully that'll be something that a few of you will be interested in (else it'll be pointless me doing it!)

Right, hope you're all well - be back soon (hopefully!)

Take care,

Figured I should probably make the effort to post again - it's been about a month :/ For some reason Blogger is still not working properly for me, but at least I've worked out now that I can still post - just have to do it from my phone. Bit of a faff, but there we go!

So, as usual, this will be a bit of a hotchpotch post of different things, including things I've bought (lots - oops!), nails etc..

So we'll start with.. erm.. (this is the problem with not having any structure to my posts, I never know where to start or anything!)

Are the sales killing anyone else?! Ok, killing may be an exaggeration. Killing my bank account would be more accurate. Honestly, why do I have NO willpower whatsoever when it comes to shopping!?

Here's a few things I've bought recently:

LOVE these. They were from New Look & were reduced to £7 in the sale.
I definitely didn't need them, but hello, how could I resist!? They're really rather lovely indeed. These are probably number 20 or something silly like that, in my brogue collection.. Oops!

I've bought quite a few things actually in the New Look sales, but haven't got pics of anything else yet. Ooh apart from this:

And you probably know already the elephant one was from Primark. Lots of people seem to have it, but I couldn't resist for £1!

You know what I'm like when it comes to my jewellery.. Nightmare! Speaking of which, I bought LOADS from the asos sale too.. Lots of new rings. As if I needed new rings! Will try & get pics soon..

Also got this:

Which I've nabbed a pic of from the site. Really not sure it's going to suit me, but I fell in love with it & had to have it!

I bought a few things from the River Island sale too.. I hardly ever shop in there, but I saw a free delivery code so thought it was worth a look.. I'm seriously a sucker for free delivery!

One of the things I got was this:

I've never really been a fan of slogan tees, but recently have found myself being attracted to them more & more. They're just so easy to wear, when you can't be bothered, or haven't got time to think too much about your outfit..

Now I may well be the only sad enough person to get this reference, but the slogan instantly made me think of a song from the Buffy musical episode..

No? Just me? Thought so! (If you do know what I'm talking about, please do say so I don't feel quite so alone in my utter lameness..!)

Ok, what next?

Right, I mentioned free delivery earlier.. Well I was seduced into making some more purchases yesterday because of a free delivery offer! Everyone get yourself over to Clothing at Tesco, to get free delivery until tonight..

I've got the following winging its way towards me:

Oops, yes, more new brogues! But they were only £5.. And I've got a few pairs of Tesco shoes & they're REALLY good quality.. so obviously I couldn't resist.. (by the way, if you're looking for these: for some reason they're in the Kids sale section - I have no idea why, they're adult sizes, but just a tip for you!)

I also chose these:

Which are cropped palazzo pants. Hmm.. We'll see. I'm thinking they'll probably look like a skirt, so will be fine!

Speaking of skirts, also got:

I really like maxi skirts at the moment - they're so comfy & easy to wear. But all mine are plain colours, so figured I'd try a couple of patterned ones. They were only £5 each, so can't go too far wrong!

I've bought lots more too, but don't want to bore you so I'll save some for another post :)

Onto nails:

I've developed a love for a new nail varnish brand. Accessorize. LOVE 'em! Here is my collection so far:

Oops, have just realised there's one missing. I got one ages in a giveaway that I had forgotten about!

Here's closer up pics, in the hope you can see the colours a bit better:

I haven't used all of these yet, but the ones I have I LOVED. They're brilliant.

Here are the ones I have used so far:

(Btw, I forgot to check the names of all these before I sat down to post & am too lazy to get up now & get them.. If you're interested in any, let me know & I will make sure I include it in a future post)

I am one of those people that are still not over the crackle trend (I'm sorry to admit!), so I also added crackle to a couple of the above:

Ok, so this has turned into rather a long post, so I will leave it at that I think!
I only have another week & a bit of work, then am off for the Summer, so hopefully will have chance to blog a lot more regularly then :)

Take care,


PS. Am still strongly considering doing a blog sale - it won't be for another couple of weeks at least, but would anyone be interested? Would mainly be clothes & shoes (you may have noticed my slight shopping problem - resulting in stacks of things I've NEVER worn :/ Would rather they went to you lot!
