Thanks to the lovely girls who suggested Halloween costumes for me. I had a last minute inspiration to go as Quorra from Tron (was just going to pretend I didn't know the theme was 'Villains'), but I couldn't find any electroluminescent wire in the space of 5 hours. So I had a last minute switched to Lady Deathstrike from X-men, played by Kelly Hu. My adamantium nails came out really well, but sadly nobody realised who I was! I kept being mistaken for Edward Scissorhands, and even worse- Freddy Kruger!! What a big Halloween fail!
Nevertheless, my husband won 'Best Costume'!! Am so proud of him, although I did catch him voting for himself!!
Now onto my post on my recent jewellery acquisitions. Over the last few months I've bought quite a bit of jewellery and thought I'd do a post on them. Here's a pic of my jewellery collection, I like using stand to store them.
My recent jewellery haul:
I got this necklace from Swarovski. Was actually there to purchase a graduation gift for my sister in law, but couldn't resist this necklace for myself when I saw it.
My husband got me this sweet and dainty flower ring from Carat. I really love it!
I recently got really into statement jewellery, but can't manage to pull them off as they temd to swamp me. This art deco inspired necklace from Monsoon is great as it's big without looking too chunky.
This necklace was from Banana Republic. I quite like their jewellery, and I really like ethnic insipred jewellery so this one was hard to resist.
I got this long necklace from Warehouse. Thought it looked quite dainty.
And lastly, also from Warehouse is this bow necklace. I love anything with bows on it!
I'd also like to share with you a scarf I just finished making. It took me quite some time to make, but thankfully I finished it just in time for the cold winter months ahead.
