Ring Ring!

I know, another post about Rings but I thought I'd share my most recent purchases with you. My theory with Rings - the bigger the better! And this rule certainly applies for this first one. £15 at Topshop and so worth it. I'm unable to find it on the Topshop website but it is definitely still in store. I love the length and the turquoise stones in this and it updates any outfit instantly!

Orange Stone Ring - £3.99 H'n'M/Long Turquoise Ring - £14.99 Topshop/Silver and Stone Ring £180 Jessie Western

My next purchase to share is something I've had on my wishlist for a long while now - an Alexander McQueen Skull Ring. I was lucky enough to pick up a Skull scarf on my last visit to Bicester Village for £130 (RRP normally around £180) and if you haven't been to Bicester it's definitely worth a visit if just for the McQueen, Mulberry and Vivienne Westwood outlet stores - I've found a bargain in all three each time I've been. I'm not too sure how much the Skull rings retail at but this one was only £70. Granted I'll be living off of baked beans for the rest of the month however I'll be doing it with fashionable fingers!

Hannah Makes Things

As a complete jewellery addict I'm always looking for quirky bits and pieces to add to my ongoing jewellery collection and I first heard of Hannah Make Things back in December when I received a beautiful Gaga name necklace as a gift from a friend.

Now the lovely Hannah is letting you get creative in making your own charm bracelets. The charms range from pretty peace symbols, quirky cassette tapes and cute bird houses. Friendship style bracelets have been seen on the wrists of celebs ranging from Fearne Cotton to the ever cool Vanessa Hudgens (yes, I did say ever cool - I have a slight style crush on this lady). You can keep things simple with just one charm or stack 'em up a la Hudgens!

The bracelets are available in 13 colours and are only £4 - be sure to pick a bright one to add a pop of colour to your outfit.
