I love handmade jewelry, infact I would go as far to say that I have a jewelry obsession. Yes, more than bags, shoes, clothes- jewelry is my weakness. I found this New York based company, Bittersweets and I just adore the items they are selling. Unfortunately my student budget does not extend to their high price points, so for now I shall admire from afar.

This piece below is one of my personal favourites from their collection, I think out of the jewelry genre bracelets... and bangles, are my real heartache... oh but necklaces too... can't choose, so don't make me.

Winter Boots

After an absence in the blogging sphere I am aiming to get back into the swing of it. I have decided to create posts about the things I have recently purchased, as I do honestly think I have a problem when it comes to shopping, buying things I can't afford is my forte. So, here's the first post in my new resolution...

BOOTS! My new love is winter boots, this season they all seem much more interesting and creative- I want to buy them ALL!
I have attempted to restrain myself and only purchased 2 (so far- winter is not over yet!)
Firstly the military boots from Office- "not very feminine" according to my grandad, and "practical for the bad weather" was the nicest thing my dear mother could find to say about them. Even so, I love them...

Then a second pair caught my eye, spotted in the sale in House of Fraser (40%- I had to have them) I purchased them immediately, once you've seen them you'll see why...

Again, not very feminine, but I love them and reduced from £140 to £89, how could I resist?

Love for Lily

Who would have ever predicted that the star who sported converse and prom dresses would be the face of Chanel only a few years later. In fairness, Lily should have shares in Chanel after the amount of bags she has collected from the designer. Jealous, me?...

Back to the old school for Boots.

I love this new range that boots have created, heritage, check, nostalgia, check, very very pretty, check. I wanted to buy it all just for the packaging. Nice work Boots.

As I was driving through Liverpool this weekend I noticed what seemed to be graffiti everywhere on derelict houses on this one street. After further observation I realised that it was related to the Tate, inspiring creativity. After a few houses the theme would change to another colour scheme, as you can see from the second photo- apologies for my photography skills, but in my defence, I was driving at the time. I thought that this was a really good way of marketing the Tate and also perhaps trying to appeal to a different audience, to me it seems to be suggesting that Art is for everyone.

Erwin Blumenfeld
Sur la Tour Eiffel, 1938

I love this photograph. . . so risque, but so natural, due to no equipment involved.
