Dear Diary: My first ever Pandora!

For years I have been so against Pandora, there’s something about the charms that I’m just not interested in. I’m still not a big fan of the charm bracelets but the rings I get a little too crazy about.

I’ve had a very busy July and it always seems to happen, I recently just celebrated one of my best friend’s birthday where we ended up watching a double feature movie, had a massive brunch and ended the night with some sangria! Of course, with any birthday comes presents, so what better present than matching Pandora.

Normally when I walk into any kind of jewellery store I get so overwhelmed I end up walking out because I don’t want to deal with the unknown. However I was determined to buy some rings for my best friend and I and just kind of walked around until somebody approached me.  All the girls at work talk about being able to stack their Pandora rings and I wanted to be able to do that with mine as well.

I actually really enjoyed my experience at the Pandora store and just being able to mix and match what rings worked well with what was a lot of fun. For myself I ended up choosing a bow ring because we all know my obsession with bows is on another level, but also because my cousin has the same one who now lives in London and I really wanted the same ring as her so we could be twinning from however many miles away we are. The second ring is a flower ring which I also got for my best friend so we could be twinning as well.

I’m also not the biggest silver fan, whenever I choose jewellery I normally go for gold just because my skin is so sensitive, so here’s hoping nothing happens. It’s probably also my first piece of silver jewellery in a long time.

Hope everybody is having a really good day, can you guys believe it’s already JULY! Time is flying by so fast, I’ll have another blog up on here soon and until next time..

Byeeeee!! xx.

Last minute work gifts

So it really hasn’t felt very christmas like this year. It sort of just feels like every other day and I mean sure there’s the christmas trees and the decorations and plans being made but overall I feel like that festive spirit just isn’t there, so I thought I would give out some last minute christmas gifts.

This year I decided to give out christmas cards with a sachet of tea in each of them. We all know not everybody keeps a christmas card, so I thought I’d pop in a little gift as well.

I popped into T2 a couple of weeks ago and purchased The Cotton Collective. It contains 80 sachets of 8 different types of teas and tisanes. They include Assam, French Earl grey, Gorgeous Geisha, Japanese Sencha, Liquorice legs, Melbourne breakfast, Mint mix and White Rose. All for the price of $85 AUD.

Each partition contains 10 sachets

I like to add personal touches to any present I make, so I purchased this adorable Alphabet & Numbers stamp set from Kikki.K for $19.95 AUD. Most likely the best investment ever. I really like the font of this stamp set and it really does make everything look so much cuter!

The finishing touches were some beautiful ribbon or twine wrapped around the envelope, I’d like to thank Youtube for showing me different ways to wrap bows on a present and each card also has a personalised message in it.

Curling ribbon works well if you’ve run out of proper ribbon like I did.

I had a lot of fun making up these little gifts, it took a while because there were 70 people, but it was worth it to see everybody so happy, even if for those few seconds. Let me know some gifts you guys gave this year, it’ll most likely give me ideas for next year and until next time..

Byeeeeeee!! xx.

Hoping you all have a Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year!!

Dear Diary: The bows are at it again!

Kicking off the new year with some new jewellery and we all know the best time to shop is after christmas where all the sales are happening and christmas gifts need to be sold out and well there I go looking for some (alot of) stuff to buy.

I had a really pretty gold bracelet that I used to wear every single day, I never even took it off when I had a shower and it was pretty much attached to me, until 4 years later it decided to break and it was one of a kind and I mourned over that bracelet because my aunty gave it to me. I’ve never been able to find anything like that bracelet so I just let it be and stopped wearing jewellery altogether.

I love simple pieces of jewellery nothing too chunky or out there and with my current obsession with bows, I’ve just been drawn to anything with a bow on it lately, so that’s why Kate Spade is just so amazing to me right now.

I’ve been eyeing these Kate Spade earrings for the longest of time and when it was further reduced, I was more than happy to buy them and put them on my ears. I also found this really cute bow bracelet with a little gem in the middle at David Jones which looks so dainty and perfect and one of my new favourites and on sale at$5.38 AUD.  I will now be wearing this for the rest of my life… I hope.

Obsessing with the bows again!!

P.P.S I have been successfully tweeting everyday from 2015 on Twitter here.

Dear diary: Bringing back an old obsession, BOWS!

Back in high school, I had some kind of accessory in my hair, pretty much every single day.  For me, it was dead set an obsession. If I happened to forget to put something in my hair, it would feel so wrong. I loved all the ribbons, headbands, bows and because my school was strict it could only be red or navy blue, you couldn’t even have any black, which sucked because I had the biggest black flower I wanted to wear.

After school was done, I just stopped wearing them because I started my hat obsession and then it was just all about hats and then I cut my hair and I just didn’t want to accessorise anymore. However, I finally decided after pretty much 3 years of short hair, I’m going to grow it out.

If you follow my twitter, you’ll know that I went shopping yesterday and I walked into Lovisa and was like oh snappps, I just know I’m going to spend, and spend I did.

I got a set of 3 little bows in the girliest of colours and design you could possibly imagine because I wanted it to match the outfit I was wearing yesterday which was in the plain, almost pastel pink colour (looking at the photo below)

My obsession with bows are crazy, I was actually looking for a slightly bigger black bow I could put in my hair when I do top buns, so that it could sit either in the bun or just outside it. I couldn’t find the one I really liked so I ended up getting these instead and perfect because I like to pin my hair to the side and the bow just adds the cutest touch. If you were wondering, I got this for $10AUD.

The next accessory is this black headband with a bow on it. I love this headband because it doesn’t hurt behind your ears if you’re wearing it for a long time. It’s so lightweight and still keeps your hair back and it has a bow on it, so I bought it.  It was on sale, so 3 accessories for $10 but come to think of it, I probably should of done that, instead I just grabbed this one because I was rushing and it was only $5 which normally retailed for 13 bucks! There was also a white one, but black all the way!!

Anyways, if you follow my instagram as well, you’ll see that I got some pretty exciting new things yesterday and I cannot wait to blog it out here for you guys. I’m actually testing the OPI Mariah Carey liquid sand as we speak, so excited, my nails look like they belong in the midnight sky, because it’s that shiny.

Follow me on instagram and twitter if you haven’t already and next blog will probably be a product review, yayyy!

Byee guys!!
