Mink and Stone blogger challenge


Monday morning I woke up to an email from the lovelies over at @blogginggals asking 
whether I would be interested in joining in with a little fashion blogger challenge, and when I saw that it was dealing with necklaces..... I was already there!

The Mink and Stone website allows you to create your own necklaces from scratch, choosing the length, clasp and beads. So heres my design....... (click on the picture to go to the website and check out my wordy description).


I tend to wear a lot of black,khaki and grey as we get into winter so adding a striking necklace is something I like to do to make my outfit looks a bit more interesting. The choice of beads on the website is a little overwhelming as there are so many, but the process of making it was really fun and could easily get addictive. The glass cluster beads are my fav by far and if I could do another would love a necklace full of those! 

The challenge was to create a necklace for an outfit, and this is the outfit I had in mind whilst creating the necklace. As its very dark and dull and quite punky I really wanted something to add a pop of colour. I loved including the spikes and grey/metal looking beads to compliment the edginess of the long jumper and leather.


High neck on the jumper so when the necklace sits on top of it the colour and the silver will really stand out.
My camera helper was not on form... but here is the jumper, really long and cosy but teamed with the jacket its got an edge. All I have on below are black jeans and black boots.

Overall an awesome website, easy to get around and easy to create your design. I had a slight problem with creating an account but they were great and emailed back instantly with help and advice. Now its a waiting game to see what bloggers have won the challenge and get to see their creations in the flesh. If I win I will do another post showing it off with my outfit and my normal camera helper.

Go check out Mink and Stone

Thanks for reading and keep your fingers crossed for me!

xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
