Me & Zena Dream Phone Necklace from queenofcharms.com

I've said it before and I'll say it again; when it comes to jewellery, I love anything cute, quirky and different. Jewellery is probably my favourite thing to buy; I could literally buy several pieces of jewellery for every item of clothing I own, I just love accessorizing things up and always think an outfit looks somewhat incomplete without a few cute pieces of jewellery! My favourite places to buy jewellery from are probably Topshop, Disney Couture and Me & Zena. Therefore, when I was asked if I wanted be sent some jewellery from queenofcharms.com to review, and I saw they stocked Me & Zena, I jumped at the chance. 

A little while ago I posted about my Me & Zena 'Peace and Love' cocktail ring, which I literally wear to death, I love it that much. I decided to choose the  'Dream Phone' necklace from Queen of Charms to go with it, as it also has a cute little peace symbol and they go together perfectly. They also perfectly compliment the majority of my currently pastel-coloured wardrobe! I absolutely adore this necklace. The detail on it is gorgeous, and I love how you can even lift the phone off the hook (there's a little magnet that keeps it in place). I've received absolutely loads of compliments on it and I really love wearing it - it fits in perfectly with my ever-increasing collection of cute and quirky jewels! It came packaged beautifully, even with some cute little chocolates (which were promptly eaten, obviously!)

I love the fact Queen of Charms stocks Me & Zena because they also do a really fab reward scheme. Basically, every time you shop with them you're credited with 10% of your order value into your account, which you can use on your next purchase or choose to save up, depending on which you'd prefer. I think this is a really good scheme, especially for someone like me who is a bit of a jewel-aholic! 

Do you have anything from Me & Zena or Queen of Charms? They stock absolutely loads of lovely brands. I've got my eye on this gorgeous bulldog ring - he needs to be mine!

Thought I would do an outfit post of what I wore in my 'I'm back' post, seen as I haven't done one in SO long, and I really, really love this outfit! One of my favourite things about summer is definitely the fashion; as much as I love getting cuddled up in chunky knits in wintertime, I absolutely adore all things floral, pastel and girly, so summer fashion gets a big tick from me! Although I should really be saving up right now, getting my new job means I've been able to treat myself a bit more than usual, so I've been filling my wardrobe with lots of gorgeous mints, candy pinks and lilacs. This is a perfect example of what I'm wearing when the sun comes out (very rare occasion, so I always think it's best to get your legs out/wear your best summer clothes when it does!) I absolutely love the bunny-print skirt, anything with animals on always gets my seal of approval and I couldn't resist getting this when I saw it online. I got the shirt from River Island a while ago when it was their 20% off student day, I think it was only about £14. The blazer is the most gorgeous lilac, and is seriously so soft and comfy, I absolutely love wearing it. I also got the cute little skull necklace not so long ago in Topshop, it looks so good with a collar! 

Is anyone else loving candy colours at the minute? I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend! 

I'm back!

I can't quite believe how long it's been since I last blogged. The past couple of months have been pretty crazy, with university and other things going on in my life, so blogging has kind of fallen by the wayside. I adore blogging but sometimes I really struggle to find the time to put enough effort into my posts. I wish I could be the kind of person who blogs every single day (and I do try, honestly) but I can never seem to fit it in. I love blogging so much and now I've officially finished uni (so scary!) I can hopefully put a lot more effort into it. I recently got a full-time job (for the first time in my life ever I have to go to work FIVE days a week - shock horror) which means it'll probably be a bit of a struggle fitting it in but I am seriously going to try my best! My blog means so much to me, as do all my lovely readers, so I'm going to make it a definite priority. I'm so out of the blogging loop at the minute, so I'm going to spend my bank holiday catching up on all your lovely blogs, as well as hopefully squeezing a few more posts in! I have so many things to blog about right now, so there really are no excuses! 

I just want to say a massive thank you to you all for sticking with me, I know there is nothing worse than following a blog that never updates... but I'm going to make it my mission to get mine back on track! I hope you all have an absolutely lovely bank holiday weekend (TWO extra days off, YES!) and I shall see you all soon!
