Tribal Treasure

With that horrible rain during the night I woke up missing the sunshine. However, my luck changed when a pretty little package arrived from the lovely Maeve.

Inside the package was a stunning gold multi tribal statement necklace. It’s the latest accessory from Marks & Spencer and it couldn’t have arrived at a better time. I’m off on my holidays on Friday and it will be the perfect time to showcase the necklace.

I absolutely love the style and colours, it’s exactly what I look for in accessories. The tribal trend is huge at the minute and I’ve always been a huge fan.

The gorgeous brown leather strap running throughout the necklace pays tribute to the tribal trend. It adds an edgy vibe to it, it’s all about the edge!

The variety of beads and diamant√©s add a touch of sparkle and glamour to it. The colours pop perfectly against the necklace. I’m so excited to wear it in Spain. Here’s a sneak preview of it on me! ūüôā

Hope you all like it as much as I do! ūüôā

Thanks, Maeve ‚ô•

Grainne Maher’s P&D Collection

NI Fashion Designer of the Year Gráinne Maher’s jewellery exploded on the international stage when US superstar Selena Gomez wore the Bark at the Moon pendant presenting the MTV EMAs in 2011. Since then, both her career and Pluck & Devour collection has grown from strength to strength. Now being stocked at the House of Fraser and various boutiques throughout Northern Ireland, the stunning and unique collection is proving popular for us stylish ladies and is becoming a hot favourite on the NI runways.

I myself have started up my own P&D collection and I am planning on expanding it with some of these fantastic pieces. The first piece I bought was this fabulous silver Owl Moon Star statement necklace with a beautiful swarovski¬†star hanging from it. As soon as I set eyes on this stunning necklace, I knew that I would quickly become addicted to Grainne’s collection. The quirky and one of a kind designs are a personal favourite of mine and I always receive lovely compliments when wearing them.

Another piece that I have is the Phoenix design that was given to me by the lovely Grainne. It’s the perfect length and I love how it catches the light, I tend to wear this piece a lot during the day and¬†when I’m going out for the night and¬†channelling my inner rock chick. Again, it’s such an unusual design to see on a necklace and that’s why I love it.

There is also a single ampersand drop necklace in a variety of sizes and colours. The hard part will be picking your favourite, at purse friendly prices, why not build up your own collection. Trust me, when you buy your first ever piece, you’ll have popped your P&D cherry and will become addicted. ūüėČ

I’m also delighted to show all of my lovely readers a sneak peek at Grainne’s¬†upcoming ‘Polly Gone’ chunky bangle¬†that will be available very soon! I can’t wait for its release, I need to get myself one asap. I love the smouldering smokey translucent colour of the bracelet, its fabulous¬†for those nights out on the town. This perspex¬†P&D Luxe bracelet is an essential accessory for AW13, it would look great as a single statement or layered up if you fancy making a bold impression.

A Girl’s Best Friend

As Marilyn Monroe once sang, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. There is no doubt that a diamond can put a sparkle into any ladies eye. And although the piece of jewellery I’m about to show you isn’t quite a diamond, to me, it’s the next best thing. ūüôā

I was given this magnificent piece of art when I was in London. It was Marks & Spencer’s¬†press show for their SS13 collection. As a thank you for attending, everyone was presented with a bottle of Lyn Harris¬†perfume and this fabulous ribbon and diamante inspired statement necklace.

image

What I love most about this is how it looks like a pretty snowflake. I wore it on Christmas Day, I thought it was the perfect accessory for the festive day.

image

The beautiful blue ribbon adds an elegant touch and allows me to adjust the size depending on what look I’m going for. It is the perfect statement necklace, I was over the moon when I received it.

image

So, onto the perfume. Lyn Harris is a well-known perfume expert and again, I was so excited when I spotted the perfume bottle in the gift bag. La Rose was the scent I got and it smells delicious. It is such a fresh and romantic scent that contains rose petals with sparkling green notes of galbanum and red berry with a base of
Indonesian patchouli, sweet musk and amber. (To be exact!)

Thank you to M&S for giving me an amazing goodie bag that every girl would love and allowing me to get a sneak peak at their SS13 collection. P.s.. keep your eye out for the range, it is actually amazing!
