Infinity Scarf

Now available in my Etsy store is this lovely woollen and Burberry patterned infinity scarf.

It’s a shame I wasn’t able to make this sooner as i will no longer be able to make and ship it in time for christmas, but i’m sure there will still be lots of cold necks around in January! (along with Etsy gift cards which I now accept thanks to my amazing sister)

This scarf is the perfect addition to any outfit as its colours and pattern make it very versatile.

One side is a thick woollen material for comfort and warmth. The other side is a stylish, burberry-esq material to add a pop of colour and interest (as well as being nice and smooth against your skin).

It is the perfect scarf to keep you cute and warm, but it also suits a more grown up attire. I also believe that it would look just as fantastic on men as it does on women!

So don’t let your neck get cold in this wintery weather! Wrap up warm with this cute and cosy infinity scarf!

Dress to Scare

So as the Halloween season is approaching some of you may be wanting to find awesome costumes to wear out, or even add a touch of the scary to your everyday clothing. Here’s some of my favourite little halloween accessories i’ve found on Etsy.

You can find the treasury here

Under Wraps Octopus Necklace

I’ve been a fan of this shop for a while. These octopus necklaces just look so awesome! If you want to dress up as an evil mermaid or maybe poseidon then this is obviously the perfect accessory for you.

Ceramic cat necklace 

If a witch is your choice of outfit and you don’t own a black cat, why not wear this cute little necklace! This would be brilliant for halloween as well as a cute accessory all year round, especially if you’re a cat lover.

Bat Brooch

These brooches are just the cutest! The perfect halloween touch to any outfit. I think these would look awesome on a big winter coat, and would be a good accessory for any vampires this year.

Simon the black bat

Another bat but this time in necklace form. Again another perfect item for the vampires amongst you, or just an adorable necklace for those who like bats.

Pumpkin baby hat

This cute little newborn pumpkin hat is great for the families who like to get everyone involved as well as keeping the little ones nice and warm!

Halloween Gold Skull Shoe Clips

If you’re like me and have far too many shoes but want some special Halloween footwear then why not invest in some shoe clips! They wont take up as much room and can completely transform any shoes. These ones just shout ‘halloween’ with their cute skull designs and can come in 3 different colours!

Silk Skull Bowtie

If you’re a guy who likes to look smart but still wants to get into the halloween spirit then this bowtie would be perfect! I could see it being part of a skeleton/undertaker costume and it’s bound to impress at parties.

Bat Cuff Links

Another one for the well dressed man. These bat cufflinks are bound to add a touch of the scary to any suit. It’s the little details that make all the difference!

Black lace face mask

Isn’t this face mask just gorgeous?  I think this would look amazing when dressed as a gothic bride. I particularly love how you can see the eyes, but only just, which would give the outfit the perfect amount of halloween creepy-ness (or sexy-ness).

Shark Costume

Kids love to dress up and go trick or treating so we can’t forget about them! This adorable little shark costume would make any little terror truly terrifying! (or maybe just make you want to cuddle them more as they look so damn adorable!). Even better is that it’s actually a cape and so very versatile and easy to put on and off.

Halloween Brains

Obviously Zombies are ALWAYS a good choice for halloween and what do zombies love? Brains. I think this headband would look awesome whether you we’re out as a zombie or some kind of zombie victim. Just team it up with pale/green make up and lots of fake blood and you’re good to go!

Horned headdress

If you’re hosting an extravagant party and/or really want to push the boat out this year, why not use this amazing headdress. There’s so much work gone into it that it’s definitely worth the price tag (although it unfortunately doesn’t include the awesome wig as well). I can’t imagine there would be anyone not impressed by these terrifying horns.

Cat Hat with Ears

If you’ve been following this blog you already know my love of novelty hats. This hat is perfect for any cat lover or anyone who wants to become a cat for halloween. Not only is it amazingly cute but it also looks really warm!

Lion Halloween Costume

Ok, so this isn’t an accessory but you guys should know my love for Lions already. Doesn’t this little outfit just make you ‘squee’? It’s just too adorable for words.

Knitted Baby Dragon Feet

For my cousins last birthday we made the mistake of buying him some Dinosaur slippers and he spent the rest of the day roaring and stomping on EVERYTHING. I assume these cute little boots would have the same effect on small children too… Awesome for the child and for many laughs, not so good for any valuables left on the floor.

Steampunk lace collar

Again this is an item that would look amazing when dressed as a gothic bride or an evil witch. It would also look amazing paired with a plain dress for a night out. In fact I think I’m a little in love with this, it just looks so awesome!

Hopefully i’ve provided you with a little inspiration for this years halloween!

Now I just have to decide what I want to be!

I would love to see all your halloween costumes or halloween items!

‘Till next time!


Springing into Spring

I made a cute little spring treasury on Etsy and thought i’d share it on here with my reasons for picking each object. 🙂 You can find my treasury here.

I tried to look for pastel colours, flowers, and a bright cheerful feeling, all the things that just shout spring to me! There were so many cute items it was hard to narrow it down, but in the end this is what I came up with:

Spring Paper Flowers

It’s kind of hard to believe these aren’t real. Who wouldn’t want these to brighten up their living room? They wont die like real flowers and can come in a range of colours to suit your room! Definitely a good choice if you always forget to water or buy new plants like me.

Woodland Stone and Branch Bracelet

I love how unusual this bracelet is. The branch with the first hint of flower is adorable and reminds me of the trees just starting to blossom.

Bright flower Necklace

Want a big bright statement piece that makes winter vanish to memory? Then this is surely the necklace for you. Its bright, fun and cheerful and just makes me smile.

Vanilla and Turquoise Flower Necklace

This necklace is cute and fresh, just what you need to chase away the cold british winter. The straw like string adds a touch of the unusual and the flowers add that cute feminine touch. All together a very adorable little necklace.

Robins Egg Earrings

Spring is a time for new life, eggs are being laid and flowers are blossoming, so why not feel part of it by wearing some ‘eggs’ on your ears? Not only are these adorable, but I think they would go perfectly with the necklace above!

Spring Bird Mobile

Well we’ve had the eggs so we obviously needed some birds as well! I love the twig and flowers at the top of this mobile and the birds finish it off beautifully. I can just see this in a little girls nursery, but to be honest i’d really want to steal this for myself. It is definitely one to enjoy no matter what your age is.

Flower Charm Necklace

Want to look like a flowery meadow? Well then this is the necklace for you. Crammed full of cute little flowers this statement necklace is bound to turn heads and make any outfit look fantastic.

Blush Angel Dress

This is the kind of dress I can imagine wearing on a warm spring day/evening whilst prancing around a meadow. It’s just stunning. Maybe the weather isn’t quite warm enough for it yet, but it’s getting there. Although I’m not sure if i’d dare wear it out of the house myself for fear of ruining it!

Snowdrop Chandelier Earrings

It’s impossible not to think about snowdrops when spring is mentioned and these earrings seem to mimic them beautifully. Bring a touch of classy elegance to your outfit by wearing these, i’d personally wear them with my hair up just to make sure they’re noticed!

Lavender Fairy Dress

I don’t know what to really say about this dress other than just simply ‘Wow’. The delicate lace and pastel colours seem to compliment the freshness of spring and really does make me think of flower fairies dancing in the evening light.

Little Mint Deer Necklace

From classic to just plain cute! Everyone loves deers and this necklace is just adorable!

Baby Duck Figurine

Another animal that reminds me of spring is the little baby ducklings! If I could I’d buy lots of these little figurines and make a line of them that I could imagine were waddling towards a nice little picturesque pond.

Pink Daisy Necklace

Another statement necklace with some bold pink flowers and green beads. A modern, but some how classic, look to really attract the compliments.

Hydrangea Blossom Diamond Ring

Gold, Silver, Diamond. What more does a girl want? This delicate little ring would certainly draw in my attention and leave me completely green in envy! The vein detail on the flower really finishes this piece off and I can imagine I would spend hours tracing them with my eyes.

Vintage Lace Wedding Headband

It may be listed as a wedding Item, but I would wear this despite not even being engaged yet. I love the messy vintage glamour this seems to exude. What better way to feel at one with nature than to be wearing this gorgeous piece.

Flowers and Pearls Necklace

Another statement necklace for the demure woman in you. A string of pearls with a bunch of flowers, a fresh addition to a smart outfit.

I hope you like these Items as much as I do, I had a lot of fun putting it together.

Till next time!
