Alex and Ani +Energy

28 02 2013

Yaaaaay! I waited so long to get my hands on some amazing Alex and Ani jewellery. After learning about their positive energy philosophy, I was sold. The only problem was deciding which symbol was for me, which is possibly why it took me so long to get these gorgeous bangles. Wanna see?!

So, my choices. Well I had to go with Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travel. Travel means so much to me and this symbol represents strength, protection and aid. Followed up with Seven Swords, which is actually a symbol of love and radiance. It represents seven Archangels and their world of love symbolised by a radiant flame. The Om symbol is probably the best known one. Its a sound resonating throughout the body into the soul. Alex and Ani tell us to wear this charm to connect with inner spirit, accept serenity and embrace faith.

I know what you might be thinking…. a load of waffle? But you can’t deny how cute they are. I am thrilled with my charms and intend to embrace their +Energy. And, I am not the only one – The Alex and Ani counter was very popular with many of the charms selling out here in Arnotts. Get them QUICK!

Hey All!

Isn’t it crazy how quickly the time is flying by?! I have barely had a minute to sit down. But I’m not complaining. Love this time of year – if only the weather would improve. I’ve still to wear any of my summer dresses! Are you the same as me?! Here’s some snapshots of what I’ve been up to lately!

More Jewellery – eeeek!

Out for the match with my Big Bro

Masquerade for the Upcoming Body and Soul Festival

I am extremely excited to wear my mask this weekend. It won’t be a fancy affair though – in fact, Wellies make up the rest of this outfit. I would love to go to a real Masquerade ball. It reminds me of Gossip Girl. I have high hopes for finding my ‘Chuck Bass’ in a sea of masks this weekend!


Jewellery Haul

29 05 2012

With my wardrobe bursting at the seams at the minute, I decided to stock up on some new accessories. A few of the old reliables have gone missing…. My arms and fingers are bare! So where did I go??? Forever 21 of course! When in need of a jewellery fix, its a must. So much choice and some amazing gems too. Not forgetting how reasonably priced – guilt free shopping at it’s best. After my stop there, I ducked into River Island and New Look. As I’m trying to save at the moment, I was bargain hunting. Let’s see what you think!

Love all Fatima Hand and Evil Eye Jewellery!!

The last necklace comes with a story – the sales assistant threw everything in together and I had to spend ages detangling it. Annoying because, there’s actually meant to be a bit thats tangled so it sits properly and now I’ve untangled the whole thing! Grrrrr! I’m quite happy with my spending though. Have some other items to show, but that’s for another day!

Don’t forget to check back, y’all! 🙂


I’ve bought a lot of jewellery lately…

I’m sitting on the couch, admiring my new ring! I have bought a lot of jewellery lately. Mostly at the sales… Got this little bad boy for an amazing €1.90!! It’s Forever 21, which is always good for some funky accessories. I’d just stay away from their clothes sale section – nightmare!!



Old School with a 2012 twist

My new obsession and current want – Friendship Bracelets. But not just any kind, oh no. The designer type! I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately – the colourful braids, but with a funky twist. When I was travelling I picked up a friendship bracelet in every town. They stacked right up my arm and when it came to the time to take them off, I was gutted. They were filthy and so worn but I thought they looked cool. Now I’ve set my sights on some new friendship bracelets. Hitting the shops this weekend for one that will stand the test of time….though this could be a violation of my NY’s resolutions…..

Still not sure whether a friendship bracelet is a good investment or not? Well check out this well known blogger, rocking the look the way I intend to. Style Scrapbook even has a DIY post on her page, which I am looking into….

Tis the season …..

25 12 2010

To be jolly – especially when opening gifts! In our house, we have the Secret Santa rule and I carefully picked out the gift I was lusting after most! So imagine my joy to see some surprises beneath the tree this morning! Joy! It’s been a great day, excess eating and drinking and battling my sister for my mum’s engagement ring when the times comes….. Oh tradition! Hope Santa was good to everyone!

Too late for a Christmas wish??

23 12 2010

Christmas Day is fast approaching and if you are anything like me, you probably only finished your Christmas Shopping today! Now that I am sorted with gifts for all my loved ones, I have been thinking about all the surprises I hope to find under my Christmas Tree this year! So I’m sending Santa one last email – just in case – and I’m wishing upon on a star tonight! However, maybe I should set my sights a little lower……
