pumpkin party

This year was my second attempt at pumpkin carving as I got into the halloween mood. I wouldn't say it turned out spooky... but at least she has nice lashes?!

I'm also on the hunt for some fun nail varnish at the moment with my birthday coming up so naturally I combined the two - pumpkin colours and disco nails. Colour co-ordination taken to a new (and experimental) level.

Happy Halloween =)

It's dangerous how easily I can fall for something. And this month, I wanted to spotlight something one-of-a-kind which (warning) you might also fall in love with: Me & Zena. Zena's designs are unique, fun, loud, statement pieces guaranteed to make you smile (or even giggle).

I wanted to showcase Me & Zena's most recent collaboration collection titled Me & Zena x Saatchi Gallery as well as my wish-list which includes an old school telephone ring and heart sharpener necklace which I can't wait to get my hands on.

The wise always say when in doubt don't. But with these gems, why would you ever doubt?!

Happy (window) shopping =)

nailed it

I think I have a new obsession: nail art.

Over the last few weeks, I've been experimenting with nail patterns and "looks". Not only is it really fun but it is also oddly relaxing (well, to me anyway). And as a result of this current obsession, I've been browsing the Barry M & Essie shelves like a hawk so expect more colours, more experiments and more attempted creativity to appear in future jewellery posts. Who knows, maybe I'll even invest in some nail art pens if this becomes a permanent part of my life!

Hope you enjoy the snaps above. I've also included some of my favourite rings this month.
