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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
