I have sooo many ideas of things I'd like to blog, and outfits and accessories. But its quite hard when I only have myself to take the photos! So here's a random assortment of some pictures I took a few weeks ago when I first got my new camera, of some of my favourite gold jewellery pieces at the moment. I know the quality isn't amazing on some of the pictures, but I quite liked how they turned out. I was just having a little play with the camera and learning the various settings. I'm not normally a fan of big bright photos but I really like the bold white one!

Jewellery is my absolute one true LOVE, and I've had so many different post ideas recently that I plan to do, as jewellery really is having a major moment right now. I'm not a big lover of silver, actually scrap that, I love silver jewellery but not so much on myself, although there are some beautiful chunky silver pieces that I have my eye on!

I love unusual jewellery, and have quite a lot of beautiful chunky, bold pieces constructed with leather and gold, but there was something so eye catching and beautiful about the Monica Vinader necklace that I loved the very first time I found them on Instagram. Since I received this as a Christmas present from my lovely boyfriend, I've literally worn it almost every single day and I know its going to be one of those rare timeless love forever pieces. It's the perfect daytime necklace to add a subtle touch of gold to an outfit, but is also perfect for the evening layered with other delicate gold necklaces, or stands out on its own with a silk vest top or a low cut ruffle top. And how beautiful is the packaging?! The necklace also has its own little dust bag inside to protect it. I am a sucker for beautifully wrapped items, and when a piece of jewellery comes in a lovely box like this, you know your onto a winner. 

I haven't posted for three weeks as its been quite hectic for me... I have unfortunately had to move back home for a little while, and the London dream is over for now... 

Circumstances change, sometimes a job isn't everything you thought it would be, and things happen in life that make you completely question everything and re-asses your priorities, change your perspective and make you realise whats important, and so I made a big decision to hand my notice in at my job in London. Which was hard for me to do, as living in London has always been my absolute dream and I was finally brave last year and did it and moved on my own to a city where I barely knew anyone and landed myself a job straight away. So to take a gamble like that was quite risky, but I know I made the right choice and do not regret my decision. 

I then spent weeks and weeks applying for TONNES of jobs within the fashion industry, I had a few interviews but sadly wasn't successful. So in the end I had no other option but to come home, and I'm lucky that I have a lovely home to come back too. The past 6 months of my life, in fact the past year of my life has been a complete whirlwind, but I wouldn't change it. I've learnt a lot in the past year about who I am as a person and where I want to be in life, and if anything, the bitterly disappointing set back of failing in London this time has made me more determined to succeed should there hopefully be a next time. 

As everyone knows London is the not the cheapest place in the world, and living there was very expensive. So a lot of my photos and blog posts won't be like other blogs where they have the latest new in items every week as I am now VERY VERY skint! (as much as I would absolutely LOVE nothing more than to be able to do this!) haha. Although I feel like I'm totally contradicting myself here, as I must admit that most of the jewellery photographed here apart from the Mawi ring and the necklace, I bought during my 5 months in London. But we do have to treat ourselves every now and again don't we... :)
