My Jewellery Habits

My Jewellery Habits

Is rotating your favourite jewellery pieces stuck in a rut or just sticking to what you love? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself recently as my jewellery needs have been very similar day-by-day of late. I’m not complaining, but it got me wondering about my own jewellery habits that I thought I would share how my jewellery look comes together. 

First up, I always start with my arm candy, I have a lot of love for bracelet stacks, pretty watches, and statement bangles. The starting point is generally, silver or gold, nine out of ten times it is silver, just my preference, but as soon as that’s sorted it guides me down which pieces to pick out first. Normally that first piece is my watch, I have a lot, probably too many but I do like to mix this piece up, whether it is changing the strap on my current fav, Shore Projects, I do love the metallic and mint green ones, or going for something a little smarter like the Citizen Eco-Drive, and then I can decide which bracelets will work best with my outfit.

Floaty Skirt Waiting For Spring

Floaty Skirt Waiting For Spring

The clocks go forward at the weekend, yep we lose an hours sleep, which at the moment I could so use, but it gives me hope that the weather is going to finally cheer up and be spring-like, rather than this constant wintery weather we seem to be having here in Blighty. I know we don’t get heatwaves that often, but seeing the sun shining would be nice, we just seem to be getting this overcast, windy weather that isn’t pretty or pleasant to be outside. 

I wanted to wear this look, without the tights, with cute strappy heels, and with a thin top, sadly it wasn’t to be so I made my floaty Reiss midi skirt winter ready with some new trusty ankle boots, I know I don’t need any more but these were a sale steal from Faith, who I didn’t realise still existed, and I really don’t think you can have too many ankle boots, especially in black.

Fashionista Barbie 3.0

Fashionista Barbie 3.0

Welcome to the new look Fashionista Barbie, a whole new design to celebrate my wonderful blog turning five last month, I know I’m mean no fanfare, cake or even a present, but that’s because I was waiting to present my shiny new look, which I hope you agree was worth the wait, the lack of blog posts this week, and the general disruption, but fret no more normal blogging will now resume. 

There have been some tweaks over the years, all done by me, none professional, and to be honest I don’t know how I’ve gotten away with a poor looking site for so long, and this year I decided to have a makeover, out with the old and in with the new. I think the only thing that remains is the two-column layout and the profile pic, and bless that straw bear hat but that will be going soon too.

Postcard From Heysham, Lancashire

Today is International Day of Happiness and it got me thinking about what makes me happy, the list is pretty long, I’m quite content at the moment. So we have the usual suspects, my husband of course, family and friends, flowers, I’m obsessed with filling the house with gorgeous blooms, my stationery stash, I can’t tell you how much joy a new notepad brings me, reading, especially if I’m in a dreamy bubble bath, my kitty monsters, and travel.
