Birthstones Series - Peridot - August's Birthstone

The Birthstone series will be exploring the world of birth stones and creating a pinterest mood board filled with style ideas related to that month’s birthstone and related colours. There will be women’s fashion, jewellery, make up, accessories, colour palettes and some home decor items thrown in too. This series will be posted on the third Saturday of every month.   Two birthstone posts in a row, but don’t worry Sharing Saturday will be back to normal next week and I’ll be looking at the gorgeous Sapphire for September’s birthstone in three weeks time.       Peridot was a tricky one to style, mainlyRead More →

How to Style Pearl, June's Birthstone

Pearl is a gorgeous one to style because it is open to so many different shades; pearls aren’t always white! They can be cream, beige, pink, blue, lavender and even darker shades of grey, blue and lavender. Essentially, they’re the dusty hues of these colours. So look for dusty pink, dusty blue and dusty lavender to pop some colour in. Due to the multi-tonal nature of pearls you can mix and match, and I’ve found a lot of great floral and patterned tops that use these colours.

Birthstone Series: Emerald, May's Birthstone

After the less than inspiring transparency of diamonds last month I was looking forward to the vibrant and lush shades of green that make up May’s birthstone Emerald! Emerald can range from a bright green to a forest green, and even slightly darker. As we’ve got Peridot coming up in a few months (August) I had to be super careful not to overlap so I’ve stuck to deep greens of a cooler shade, forest greens and very few khaki greens. The pinterest board features items and colour palettes that cover all these shades, as well as gold, peach, navy and purple. The Birthstone series willRead More →

rose gold bracelet

After my post showing you the treasures of my Jewellery box I was offered a chance by The Lifestyle Blogger UK to receive and review one of their products. They are a UK based beauty and lifestyle blogger fashion boutique and I have to say guys, choosing from the selection I saw was not easy! They have some beautiful pieces of jewellery and lovely coloured scarves – and I’m not a scarf kinda girl yet I wanted them all! Like many I’ve been really attracted to rose gold and so I went for this lovely heart rose gold bracelet.       As you canRead More →

Small business and blogger etsy stores

I took a break last weekend as I was still polishing off the new blog theme and features, so this week I wanted to make a special Sharing Saturday. So I decided to get personal. As a part of Holiday Wishes I had offered to fulfil some wishes by promoting their etsy stores. I absolutely love etsy, there is always something for everyone and being an oddball geek I don’t tend to find ‘my style’ in main shops, so etsy is wonderful for finding things that are really me. I also admire people who are able to create, and put their work out there forRead More →
