Designing my own jewellery & starting my own business

For the past few weeks, Iv not been feeling myself, stress at work has become a problem and iv needed to take a step back to think about what makes me happy and to focus my energy on the right things.

A while back I started making and selling jewellery. I sold some bracelet’s to friends, family and also to a bride for her to wear on her wedding day! This is my passion, I love creating and a making pretty jewellery. So I started again but made a few changes.

Iv grown up a lot since the first time I started making my own jewellery, this time I’m creating simple, delicate unique pieces drawing inspiration from nature – from the colours of the ocean to the colours of forests and mountains. I pair rough cut stones, gems and beads with sterling silver charms; I love working with stones and gems as each one has its own character, no two are ever the same.

These are a few of pieces I have started working on, I would love it if you could leave a comment or message me with your opinions! Would you wear them? Is there anything you would change?

My city break beauty/skincare essentials

In 2 days my partner and I are traveling to Edinburgh for a long weekend, I’m in love with this city and can’t wait to show into my partner! We will only be there for 4 days so we are sharing a North Face base camp duffel bag, which means packing light! This might be difficult!

That past few weeks my skin hasn’t been right so I’m taking minimal make up on this trip to let my skin get back on track! But I will be tacking the basics my Born this way Two faced foundation, massacre and my soup and glory eye brow pencil.

The travel bag ill be taking is my new Rituals Travel bag – £25  the main pocket is massive, inside as two smaller pockets perfect for small lipsticks or balms. I really love this bag, it hold more than I thought it would and the colour is amazing!

Inside my travel bag

LUSH – The Comforter – £9.95 I love this shower creme and couldn’t imagine traveling without it. As I have the large bottle I’m going to transfer some to a small travel sized container. The comforter leaves your skin felling soft and smelling amazing!

LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub – £5.75 Edinburgh is cold and my lips can get easy shaped and sore so this is a must! I’ll be keeping tis in my small backpack for while we are exploring the city. This product is perfect for taking away dry skin before applying lip blame or lipstick.

Simple Kind to skin face wash & moisturizer, My skin recently has been horrible all due to stress! So iv been focusing a lot on my skin care route and see what works for me. I’m taking both so I can carry on part of my skin care route while I’m away.

I also have the cleanser and toner which iv been loving but my parter will kill me if I take all these bottles. He’s carrying the back pack!!

Paul Smith Tooth brush £11, I received this as a gift years go and totally forgot about it.  I love it as a travel toothbrush.

Lastly I’m be taking my Tangle Tezzer, I can not travel with out this thing!!

I hope you liked this post and found it little bit helpful, I’ll be sharing a lot about my Edinburgh trip in the next few week’s so stay tuned!

There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow ~ Walt Disney

Since receiving my bangle I haven’t taken it of! The bangle is really high quality and is beautifuly engraved. They add a little Disney magic to your everyday, they look perfect on their own or stacked with other Lillian & Co bracelet’s.

Lillian & Co’s packaging is also high quality, my bangle came in a white velvet pouch and a white jewellery box which features their simple black text logo. The attention to detail from the packaging to the bangle it’s self makes this an awesome gift!!

Sale’s Haul

Hello! Happy Saturday!! It’s nearly the end of the first week in 2016 and I thought I would share with you all what I bought in the sales! A few days after Christmas, my family all took a trip to Meadow Hall in Sheffield, I wasn’t expecting to see anything. I usually hate sales, the fuss, the busyness and how everyone goes mad for things that they didn’t even want a few months ago! But I thought I would have a look and see what I could find!

The first thing I brought was a Fat Face Jumper in black. I love Fat Face’s knitwear, I have a few items from them now and they are all hard-wearing and so comfy.

The next thing is this Harpenden Textured Dip Hem Jumper which was £35 and now £20. The cardigan is actually a Christmas present I received, but I had to share it with you as the price is amazing! This is now my favourite cardigan, it was £45 and is now £25!


 

Victoria’s Secret

I’ve been in need of some casual tops and clothing for a while now and I’ve had my eye on Victoria’s Secret PINK v-neck tops but never had the money to buy them.

The V-Neck Tee was £17.50 and the leggings were also £17.50 but there was an in-store discount of £10 off!
