To me, having something personalised is kind of a big deal. With a name like Sinead, it’s not too often that you’ll find hairbands, money boxes and any of the other useless personalised stuff they sold at Woolworths with your name on it. I think that’s quite possibly why I now have a thing for things with my name on it, it just gives it a more personal touch.   Getting the personal touch with Merci Maman Obviously it’s nice to just have something personalised anyway, who doesn’t want to feel special? I particularly think for gifting, when you’ve not only got someone something thoughtful, but you’ve also gone out of your way to add that little extra somethin’ somethin’ it just means a little bit more. Given my obsession with all things personalised, it was a no brainer when the jewellery company Merci Maman asked if I wanted to pick something with a personal touch, uhhh YEAH. Often I find that with personalised jewellery it can be a bit too fancy for my liking. This is what I love about Merci Maman, they have some really simple pieces that are so easy to wear. And when I say personalised touch, you can opt in or out of this, it’s just an extra service that they offer with all of their items. The first piece I chose was the intertwined necklace in gold, I’ve been on the hunt for a while for a nice necklace that I can wear daily that isn’t too fussy. You can choose to get this engraved, some of the examples were anniversary dates or initials of husbands etc, this is such a lovely idea but I thought something like this might send my boyfriend to the hills so I opted out of the personal touch for this one! I also went for the silver open bangle style, because a simple silver bangle is pretty much an essential in any girls jewellery box. I couldn’t help myself but to get the personal touch on this one, I went simple with my initials. I love the way that it’s done in a handwriting style rather than as if it’s been printed, I’ve seen this before and have to say I’m not the biggest fan! Are you obsessed with getting things personalised like me or are you more of a simple let the jewellery do the talking kinda gal? Also guys . . if any guys read my blog?? FYI, a personalised intertwined necklace would pretty much make the perfect anniversary gift . . just saying.

The Colour Of Blue

There’s something about the colour of blue, particularly a blue and white colour combo that’s got me head over heels and pretty penniless recently. There’s a blue tide taking over my wardrobe and I’m pretty happy to just let it happen, I feel it’s the colour of spring, I’m calling it! What is it about blue you ask? I feel like to me, it’s a colour without being a colour . . this particular pastel pale shade of blue is just the perfect amount of colour for my minimal wardrobe. It pretty much goes with everything and put together with white makes the most perfect spring combo. Shop The Colour Of Blue You can use my collage to shop my obsession!

How To Nail Mothers Day

I genuinely feel bad for the Dad’s of the world because Mum’s are just so much easier to buy gifts for. When Mothers day rolls around I’m spoilt for choice. Being the handy andy that I am, I thought I would lend a helping hand with some of my top picks for this mothers day. I am a born gift giver, if I know and love someone, I’m amazing at buying gifts for them – people may be reading this and thinking no your not, particularly my boyfriend who said my gifts were ‘quirky’. I went through a stage of not having a lot of money and a lot of my gifts were homemade, I say thoughtful he says quirky. Potato, patata. Anyway, I love buying gifts, so therefore I must be good at it no? *Mug : Amara This cup is honestly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! So I know mugs can be a pretty generic Mothers day gift but I feel like nice one’s don’t come under the generic umbrella, it’s reserved for mugs with best Mum ever written across the front. Who wouldn’t feel like a million dollars drinking from this? They do one with the eye’s open too, could make a cute little set, just saying . . Candle : Diptyque // *Book : Amara // Hand Cream : L’Occitane // Perfume : Jo Malone In my opinion, smellies are KING. Smelly candles, perfume, smelly hand cream – obviously I mean good smelly! My boyfriend got me this candle for Valentines and I have to admit, I’ve not quite got my full use of it for flatlay purposes to start burning it. I can tell you from enthusiastically sticking my nose against the wax and sniffing that I know it’s going to be a dream. Mums love candles, candles love Mums, the end. This L’Occitane hand cream is divine, the smell is incredible, is it sad that it’s my special hand cream that I don’t use everyday? Any form of pampering will always go down a treat, after all, Mothers day is about Mums relaxing! Coffee table books, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, what woman doesn’t love a beautifully presented hard back book? If not to read, just to look pretty on the coffee table coffee table books are a ‘thing’ you know? This one’s all about hosting and with motherhood comes the position of hostess, she needs this. *Vase : Amara  // *Book : Amara // Lip Balm : Chanel Flowers are an old friend you can always rely on for Mothers day gifts, only good flowers mind you! None of this petrol station carnations nonsense! I’m talking roses, peonies, orchids . . what are her favourites?! Do you know what’s even better than flowers? flowers in a vase, something that smells beautiful and looks beautiful, and something lovely to keep! I love the size of this one, it’s not exactly a bunch of flowers vase though! Dip dye and pastels are so my thing right now, or would be if I had…

Chunky Knits : 20 under £20

If there’s one thing I love more than jeans it’s a chunky knit, or any knitwear to be honest, but chunky knits have a special place in my heart. So in the name of research (well thats laughable!) i’ve compiled a fun list of 20 chunky knits under £20 –  can you say no to that price? I guess you can try! The Chunky Knits I’ve tried to be clever and make it so that you can click on the image and it’ll go straight to the webpage but clearly I’m not that clued up because it doesn’t work on them all so I’ve also listed them below! Beware, high levels of white, cream, beige and grey! This was honestly so much harder than I thought but I did it! I would honestly wear every single one of these as well! Let me know if you’d like me to do another post like this on something else! Another item of clothing? no 100 under £100’s though PLEASE!!
