Glassons top // Thailand markets skirt // The New Punjab bangle // Lovisa ring, necklace & temp. tattoos // Witchery espadrilles
When this little gem of a bangle arrived on my doorstep, it brought a little more sparkle into my life. For anyone that knows me, I ADORE anything sparkly, shiny or glittering. Glitter and sparkle represents the stuff that seems to be disappearing from our ever busy lifes - creativity, soul, yearning and simple carelessness. It reminds me glitter paint, and making our own necklaces in primary school; it reminds me of crazy imaginations and fairy costumes.
As soon as I put it on, I knew what kind of outfit it needed to go with - something flowy, free and completely comfortable. This white flowy top instantly makes me feel like a bohemian gypsy and I love it!! My maxi skirt, which I bought in the markets at Thailand, is not only one of my most comfortable skirts, but also involves one of my favourite trips where I got lost in the culture and landscape of a whole new world. My outfits get boring when I go to work, as much as I love clothes, I forget about it because I'm too focussed on other boring adult details. I vow to wear this pretty bangle as much as possible and remember to have fun during my day, because I owe it to myself :)
Like I've said before, this year is going to be a busy one and I'll have uni, placement, working at the high-schools, plus trying to keep creating content for the blog & keep my social life (what social life?! lol) intact as well. But I'm going to try and prioritise the sparkly things in life too - painting my nails, spending an afternoon with temporary tattoos, dressing up and all that jazz!
Mushy stuff done. Check out the awesome label behind my bangle - The New Punjab. The bangle I styled is part of the second collection from The New Punjab, called 'Royal Raj'. Each bold statement jewellery piece differs slightly in size and shape as they are precious stones and not one piece is alike! All The New Punjab items are made in small quantities and aren’t meant to be mass-produced. So it's definitely limited edition. If you like what you see, go and give this little local label some love :) Inspired by the colourful and vibrant culture of India, and drawing from her own family heritage, designer Cheri Flewell-Smith has also created a mix of modern, eclectic and ethnic goods ranging from accessories to home furnishings that are available online. I've possibly got an interview with Cheri lined up, so stay tuned!!
