The Everyday Jewellery | ft Michael Kors & Pandora

Saturday, 22 November 2014

One question I often get asked on Instagram or even if I'm just out and about is 'where's your 
ring from?' or 'Is that a Michael Kors watch?'. With this being said, I thought I'd put together a little post showcasing all of my favourite high-end jewellery that I wear on a regular basis, just in case you were interested in knowing where any of them are from. I personally think they're all gorgeous pieces and they may even give you some Christmas gift inspo if you're struggling for ideas.

First up are my two watches from Michael Kors and Daniel Wellington. I got my Michael Kors watch for Christmas a couple of years ago and it hasn't left my wrist since. I wear it every single day, day and night, without fail. I'm a total sucker for all things rose gold and I love the chunky masculine design. These watches aren't cheap but they're definitely worth it. The Daniel Wellington Sheffield watch is a recent addition to my jewellery wardrobe but its definitely a very welcome one. Again, it has rose gold detailing which I just LOVE but compared with the Michael Kors watch, this one is more ladylike and dainty. Its very flat, feels super lightweight on my arm and I love the leather strap. I think this one is better for the evening when I'm wearing a pretty dress! You can actually get 15% off Daniel Wellington watches with my code 'couturegirl' - add it to your Christmas list ladies!

Next up are two bracelets that I also wear every day without fail. I wear my silver Pandora charm bracelet on my left arm and my dainty Swarovski bolt micro bracelet on my right. I never take these bracelets off - even when I'm in the shower or in bed, they're on my wrist. I got the Pandora bracelet when they were the big trend a few years ago and I've loved collecting charms for it ever since. I love that all the charms mean something to me or represent a time in my life. 

I got the Swarovski bracelet this Summer as a birthday present from one of my best friends and I just love how simple and elegant it is. I don't normally like wearing too much jewellery together but this one is so dainty and fine that I can get away with wearing it on a daily basis. Again, its rose gold, need I say more?

Another piece of jewellery I wear every day is my Tiffany & Co necklace - I got this as a Christmas gift from my dad last year and again, I've worn it every day since I got it. I always wanted to own something from Tiffany (those pretty blue boxes, ahhh) and I didn't own a delicate necklace I could wear every day so I thought this was a good one to go for. I love it!

Finally is my selection of Pandora rings - as you can see, I'm a big fan and currently own four of them! I obviously don't wear them all at once but I love them all equally so I tend to switch them up depending on what I fancy! I couldn't find links to the small stacking ring or the large blue toned stone ring but the other two are the feather ring which I wear on my thumb and the mother of pearl ring which is a beautiful statement piece.

Lots of love,

Outfit | Misguided Must-Haves

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Misguided Must-Haves, Misguided Vanessa Coat, Missguided Carly Crepe Checked Playsuit, Missguided OOTN, Outfit, Style, Fashion

Here I am, back with another fashion post. Check me out, getting all adventurous and all that. I was off work last week (which was complete bliss - I definitely needed some down time) so I dragged my boyfriend to a local park to take these photos for me. Its safe to say the weather was not on my side and I look ridiculously windswept on the majority of these photos! However, I persevered and manage to get a few pics of what I wore. 

This Missguided combo is my favourite outfit of the moment - I've worn it countless times now and I'm still not bored. The checked playsuit was a must-have as soon as I saw it on their website as I'm completely obsessed with all things checked at the moment and I love the flattering shape - its got 3/4 length sleeves which make it more winter appropriate and the material its made from is fairly thick and strudy. Paired with a thin waist belt (this one was only £1 from Primark), it makes for a stylish but comfortable look. For only £24.99 too, its a serious bargain and something I'll be wearing over and over again this season.

This tailored coat is also from Missguided and another item I've been wearing none stop recently. I was influenced to buy this after seeing the lovely Em from Em Talks looking fantastic in something similar over on her blog and I've had countless compliments since. I've always wanted to own a camel coat as I think they're such a timeless piece that can be worn over and over again with virtually any outfit. Whilst this one is probably not the best for keeping really warm throughout the Winter months (its quite thin), its one that can be dressed up or down and will instantly make any outfit look 10x more chic. I'm completely in love with it and for the price, I would urge everyone to buy it!

My boots are last season Topshop and SO comfortable - I've been wearing them almost every day as they're so easy to throw on with any outfit!

I'm really loving Missguided at the moment - I could spend all day browsing their site for fashion bargains! 

Do you like these pieces?

AMAZING Beauty Box Alert | Glossybox for Harvey Nichols

Sunday, 16 November 2014

Oh I do love a good limited edition beauty box. I'm not a massive lover of monthly beauty box subscriptions as I think the contents can be very hit and miss but when beauty box brands bring out a limited edition box, the contents are usually pretty damn amazing. Take Latest In Beauty for example - their 'Glamour Beauty Edit' boxes are always a big hit and amazing value for money! With this being said, when an email landed in my inbox to tell me Glossybox had teamed up with Harvey Nichols to create their latest limited edition box*, I was pretty excited. Lets face it, Harvey Nicks is a high-end establishment and I knew that the contents of the box would live up to that high-end name.

However, when the box arrived in the post, adorned with Christmassy snowflake design might I add, I was pretty shocked by just how great the contents of this box are. I think my mouth may have dropped open in shock - no word of a lie. My eye was immediately caught by some of my favourite brands including NARS, Benefit and Elemis so I couldn't wait to get stuck in and see what was in there. Here's the eleven amazing products I I found inside ...

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (full size)
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (sample size)
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum (sample size)
Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser( sample size)
Benefit They're Real Mascara (sample size)
Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment (sample size)
OPI Avoplex Moisture Replenishing Hand Cream (full size)
NARS Satin Lip Pencil (full size)
La Coupe Coconut and Macadamia Oil (sachet)
SHOW Beauty Sheer Thermal Protect (full size)
Harvey Nichols Mini Scented Candle (full size)

I'm not going to go into great detail about all of the products in the box because this post would be ridiculously long if I did and I've not had chance to try them all yet but what I will say is, there isn't one product in this box that I wouldn't use. I've already tried some of them and I'm pretty in love with the SHOW Beauty Thermal Protect (which is worth £35 on it own) and the NARS Satin Lip Pencil (why have I never tried these until now?!).

The box is priced at £30 for subscribers of Glossybox and £35 for non-subscribers which is exceptional value for money as its contents are worth a huge £150. I think it would make the PERFECT Christmas present for any beauty lover and although I doubt there's any guys reading this, you would get some serious boyfriend/husband points if you bought your other half one of these boxes. Or why not treat your mum, sister or best friend to one? I bought my best friend a limited edition beauty box for her birthday last year and she was over the moon with it!

If you like what you see, you can register your email here and start buying your box before anyone else when it goes on sale tomorrow! I have a feeling this is going to sell like hotcakes so if you're interested, go and register right away!

Do you like the look of this box? Will you be snapping one up?

Lots of love,
