Glitter and Jewels.

There have been a lot of beautiful shiny things on net-a-porter recently and I couldn’t just keep them to myself. Though I’d say my taste in jewellery has always remained pretty consistent, as I’ve gotten older I’ve seen that there’s a very specific type of jewellery that drives me while. Dainty, delicate small pieces that are so cute and feminine yet understated and not too flashy – especially when it comes to earrings.

But the thing I love the most about all these beautiful shiny things? They’re just so nice to look at, and it’s as simple as that.

Florentine.

How cute are these Carolina Bucci studs? A simple design that’s not boring (thanks to the glittered coating) and oozes sophistication, these earrings are the kind every girl needs in her collection.

Available in three different colours, you can get bet that these are right at the top of my wish list.

Aamaya by Priyanka Scorpio Earring.

As a proud Scorpio I love finding my star sign in the form of cute wearable accessories that aren’t over the top. Take Aamaya by Priyanka’s rose-gold plated stud earring; small, chic with a touch of bling, it’s the perfect addition to any woman’s trinket box and ear. I’ll take two please!

    

Not a Scorpio (that’s a shame, poor you…) don’t worry because there are other zodiac sign earrings to choose from.

Total Stud-Muffin.

I love studs. Cute, practical and subtle, stud earrings (especially the really small ones) go with all outfits. I’m always on the lookout for studs to wear as I find them to be less flashy and attention-grabbing, yet still able to be the finishing touch complete any look. These days studs are getting more delicate and coming in unique designs like the mismatched earring sets that I’m currently loving.

And speaking of studs, I’ve always wanted to get a second ear piercing but for whatever reason I haven’t. Therefore, by the end of the year I really hope that I’m finally able to take the plunge and get my second hole done – just think about all the more earrings I’d be able to wear!

Jewels & Dresses.

Oooh, two net-a-port posts in two days… can you tell I’m procrastinating? Just kidding I’m not, I’ve just hit a wall. Anyway, while I try to get over this mental block, I thought a little browse on net-a-porter would do the trick. Today’s picks are jewels and dresses (everything a girl needs in life) that can all be styled with these awesome platform Eytys sneakers. While I’m usually not a fan of the flatform sneaker, I’ve had my eyes on these particular ones for a few months now and I wish soooo badly that I could own them. To show my love for the sneaker (and to mix things up a bit) I’ll be featuring these sneakers in every Styling Suggestion, to bring a laid back and casual feel to my favourite pieces. I hope you like it.

I’ve really missed writing posts like these, and what do you know? My mental is cleared so it’s back to work for me. Check out net-a-porter to see what else is new today!

Five Favourites Thursday: June 2015.

Is it just me or did this month go by so quickly? Sure we’ve still got a good five days left of the month, but as the last Thursday of June, the month is pretty much finished. Anyway, as I’ve spent the majority of my month working eight and a half hours a day whilst writing my dissertation, I haven’t exactly done anything too crazy recently – unless you count window shopping on net-a-porter. Check out five of my favourite pieces this month.

If there’s one regret I have about this month, it’s that I didn’t post quite nearly enough as I would have liked. Oh well, that’s something I hope to rectify next month. Until then, happy last Thursday of June 2015!

Nightshade.

Yep, I’m really taking that whole ‘dark shades for Spring/Summer’ seriously. So seriously in fact, that the other day I bought a whole bunch of new shades to try out (the first of which I shared last week), and you’ll be happy to know that so far I’m loving them! Now, purple really isn’t my thing. To be honest I kind of hate the colour except for when it’s so dark it’s almost black; and after a bad experience with dark purple nail varnish a few years ago, I was a little sceptical about buying this colour.

Anyway long story short, I love this colour so much. It’s perfectly dark and broody with a dash of sexy thrown in, and the colour works so well with my skin tone and just about any outfit.

I can’t wait to show you some of my other purchases, so stay tuned for those.
