Ginger Pickle

I stumbled upon the custom made jewelry website 'Ginger Pickle' at the weekend (hand-made jewelry shop based in Aberdeen) and loved the quirky necklaces, brooches and bracelets. I immediately went to the sale section and saw this golden apple necklace. It is very Snow White esque and a bargain price; £4.50! :)

The gorgeous packaging it came in

Now, another outfit :) The dress and socks are recent purchases.

Excuse the messy bedroom!

Dahlia Dress

Here I am in sunny Maldon in my new "Rebecca" dress. It made an appearance on my boyfriend's facebook wall a few weeks ago when it was £49... boyfriend said no, so was very happy when it went down to £25 in the sale :D immediately snapped it up.

Excuse my pale bruised legs and awkward footwear....

The bag is a recent purchase, i'm in love with the tapestry style print :)

Harry Potter studios

I've been a Harry Potter fan since the ages of 8, I asked my parents to get me the first book for christmas and it was love after the first page. The movies are amazing but they're not the same as the books, all those extra things: background characters, Dumbledore's love for Sherbert Lemons, Hermione and Ron becoming Prefects...

The boy drove us both down to the Harry Potter studio tour in Watford on friday. We'd booked tickets in May and totally forgot about the summer holidays! There were kids everywhere and I unfortunately did not get to stand on the Knight Bus as the kids were obsessed with ringing the bell haha.... if I was 15 years younger, i'd have done the same!

We both tried butterbeer, the boy wasn't keen on it but I thought it was delicious. It tasted a bit like toffee soda and had cream on top, it was probably more like a dessert than a drink however. I'd definitely recommend trying it if you visit, as the studio is the only place in the UK tha…

Deliah Dust bracelet

A few weeks ago, Deliah Dust had 10% off on their jewelry. I chose a lovely little cat bracelet, it is very delicate but so unique. I can be quite fussy with jewelry, gold doesn't look good on me so it has to be silver, or fake silver ;).

It came in this very nice pink tissue

It came to £3 with the discount!

Dress - topshop (via ebay - £3.99)
Cat bracelet - Deliah Dust (£3.00)

New watch!

I have not owned a watch for a while. My mother bought me a watch for my 18th birthday but alas, the strap broke.
The first watch I owned was black and pink and from Argos, it was bought by my parents for my 7th birthday. Sadly I have no idea what happened to it but ever since that first watch, my wrist has felt slightly naked without a watch..... until the 18th birthday watch broke.

This was purchased last weekend, £14.99 from Argos. Nothing fancy, but it does the job even it is slightly big... may need to take a trip to the jewelers to get it adjusted.

The boy ushered me into Argos, and voila, a nice girly watch :)
