OOTD: Neon pop

This neon dress is one of my favourite day to day dresses from In the Style I was actually sent this last summer, when I went to one of their events to wear but it never came in time! Which was a shame as I really love it, the print is really pretty and the cut is really flattering. I thought it was about time I started wearing colour again because I am so over winter colours. If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed I have fallen in love with colour again, I am totally obsessed with patterns and colour at the moment, it just seems to be inspiring me like Ive never seen colour before!
Are you a colour person or do you wear black all the time?
Much Love

Paris- the city of love

Hi, I hope everyone had an amazing valentines day, I got the best present ever, and got to go feed some penguins! Anyway I thought I would share more photos from my new year trip to Paris, no matter how many photos I take, I fall more in love with the city every time I click, I guess this is why it is called the city of love eh?
Could you get bored of Paris?

"We all look for heaven and we put our love first" - Winter boho style

My first outfit post of 2015! I know its taken me a while but its been so cold I just couldn't go and stand outside to take photos, I mean my face was numb today but I got thorough it- just.
I have been needing to take some more style shots of my jewellery rather then just product shots so I thought this would be a great time to share with you my casual day time winter boho style and get my jewellery looks in there as well. It can be really hard to do "boho" in winter in the UK, its easy enough to search it on pinterest, but our winter is a lot colder then the looks I see on there. I always go to my trusty blue denim jeans and levi boots, and I either team them with a loose soft shirt or this top that I am wearing today. The added lace at the bottom gives it a layered look and adds that delicate boho feel, Ive also put underneath a dark lace triangle bra. Winter boho outfits are always a little more simple then summer but I find if you layer up the jewellery it makes an effortless simple look, look really detailed and styled, without too much effort. All the jewellery I am wearing is from Wild Inanda
What do you think of the boho style for winter? does it work for you?

Paris in Winter (through my camera phone)

At the end of december I went to Paris to celebrate New Year, and I have to say I love Paris in the Winter, its far more enchanting them in summer. More then anything I love the skies, we all see the photos of Paris with bright blue skies, but winter offers a whole pallet of skies, from majestic sunsets to a sea of grey on cold dull days. I thought I would share with you the photos I took on my phone, as I often get asked what camera I use when I share Paris posts, so I thought I'd show that you can still take amazing photos with a camera phone, you don't need an expensive camera, just something beautiful to capture.
 First sunset of 2015
I love this photo of the Lourve, it was december 30th, our first night in Paris and we were the only people at the Lourve, it was the most amazing moment, it was silent, freezing but totally magical.
Have you been to Paris in winter? what did you prefer?

Thomas Sabo with Joshua James Jewellery

I am going to start this post by saying I am a very, very, very lucky girl! Why you may ask? Well I have been lucky enough to have a beautiful Thomas Sabo charm bracelet sent to me from the super friendly guys over at Joshua James Jewellery! I know pretty awesome right? What also makes me really excited by this is that Joshua James is a local jewellers to where I live, the store is in the small town Hessle just outside of Hull in East Yorkshire, which feels great to be working with a local business! They stock all your major jewelley brands from Pandora to Michael Kors. They also have a fabulous website that is super easy to use. On the Thomas Sabo section they even have a charm builder part, where you can select the bracelet you want and the charms you want adding and with Valentines day coming up Ladies, it would be a very helpful tool for the man in your life to help 
pick you the perfect gift ;) 
I chose the thicker bracelet, as i prefer chunkier chains. The actual bracelet comes with a free charm- the clover leaf one, which in itself is worth £39.99! I then chose the kola charm, they have the most amazing selection of animal charms, I have my eye on the hedgehog charm next! Another great thing is that Joshua James offer UK next day free delivery!  

I love the idea of building up the charm bracelet and telling a story, getting a charm for a special occasion or a special reason. Charm bracelets are timeless, you know you can wear it now in 2015 and that in ten years time you'll be able to wear it then!
What do you think of my bracelet? Would you like one Valentines day?
Much Love

Wild Inanda Jewellery

Oh it has been so long since I blogged, like 4 weeks? it's the longest I haven't blogged for! I hope everyone had a wonderful christmas, and a good new year (we went to Paris, which will be a blog post soon!) I've been really busy, with going on holiday, going back to work, catching a cold, being ill off work and trying to take over the world with my jewellery range... well not quite but I have been working hard! I have so many new items in my store, that I have either spent many sleepless nights sourcing or blistered my hands making. I am so excited for this year and what it will hold for Wild Inanda, I feel I have really found the route I want to be taking with it, its early days but I'm feeling positive! I have new ranges that I have started, and some new designs I am planning on making. I've been hoping to get some looks shot but its so cold, have you stepped outside lately? I did and I stepped right back inside! If you haven't checked out my store I would love if you could and let me know what you think.

Let me know what you think!

#partysos with F&F Clothing

Its that time of the year again that involves having a million wardrobe meltdowns, it seems that every other night you are in need of a new outfit, and by the time you have had a few too many mulled wines there is a high chance you will be leaving your house with odd shoes on! Luckily F&F Clothing have solved all your #partysos needs (not the too much mulled wine bit, you need to see someone else about that) F&F have put together a fab list of what they think you need to be wearing this party season. I chose off the list this very chic white and black blazer, I hardly ever wear monochrome but I have always wanted a white blazer and I thought this was perfect! I teamed it with a black top and black leggings, very simple but very effective. I also got these amazing shoes off the #partysos section, holographic gold - well I couldn't go full monochrome could I?

P.S so many party pieces have gone into the sale- like my shoes, now £11, so its really worth a look!
P.P.S Rings are from my jewellery store ;)

Diy - Fillable Baubles

Its christmas!!! I've broke off work, so I am ready to do all things christmassy. I am really shocked at how quick it has come around though, I totally dont feel prepared, especially as I goto Paris on the 30th!! Did you know that? So yes that does mean, yet again, there will be a whole heap of Paris photos on the blog.  I thought today I would share with you the fillable baubles I bought from Hobby Craft. I dont think I need to show you how to fill baubles, but I thought I might offer a 
little inspiration with mine! 

I filled mine with a winter wonderland! I used white feathers, a polar bear with fake snow, some snow covered acorns and twigs off my garden tree complete with fake snow.
Have you made any christmas decorations? I'd love to know!
Much love and a merry christmas!

WIN some christmas Yankee Candles and also craft your way to a merry christmas with Yankee Candle!

 A month or so ago I was contacted by Yankee Candle to see if I would like to do some easy Christmas crafts on my blog to celebrate their new christmas scents! Of course I jumped at the chance, I love a bit of christmas crafting! The two candles they sent me was Candy Cane Lane and Angels Wings, I have to say my dog kind of wanted to eat the Candy Cane Lane one, it smells delicious! I love these scents as they aren't spiced, and I hate christmas spices, I know what a scrooge eh! There is a chance for you to win both these candles at the end of these easy tutorials!
 Yankee candle sent me some craft kits to help celebrate these two scents, the first one being the Candy Cane Lane kit, here I will show you how to make a giant candy cane star! You will need,
10 candy canes
10 present bows 
 Create a heart shape with the candy canes, you can either use a glue gun to hold them together or tape if you have kids doing the diy! I found it easier to fasten the bottom together then the top as if you do the top first then pull the bottom together it can snap the candy canes.

 Make 5 of these hearts and arrange them to create a star, and fasten these together.

 Cover where you have fastened the candy canes together with the present bows
 Lastly tie your string on and hand your star, this would be amazing for kids to hang on their bedroom doors! I wonder if it would last that long though, or if a few candy canes would go "missing"
 The next tutorial is to make a pair of angel wings, you will need
white feathers (long ones and fluffy ones)
 Fold your card in half and draw a wing on one side
 Cut around your wing, with the card still folded so that you end up cutting the other side as well, and have an equal set of wings
Glue your feathers onto the card so that they create a "step" at the bottom 
Once dry trim your feathers at the top as to bring back the wing shape at the top
 Build up the fluffy feathers on the top half of the wings as to cover up the messy ends of the feathers underneath
Add string and you are ready to go!
I hope you enjoyed these super cheap and easy DIYs, they are great for the family to do. Now for a chance to win your own Candy Cane Lane and Angel Wing Yankee Candles, just follow the instructions bellow!
