My Thirtieth Birthday Wishlist

╮ My Thirtieth Birthday Wish List ╰

If someone had asked me two or three years ago what I was planning for my milestone of a birthday, I would have reeled off a whole list of plans and ideas. Despite going through a rough time with my health I didn’t want to let it win, and therefore planned an array of things for my thirtieth year on Earth. But sometimes life has a way of sending you off into a completely different direction however, and now I am postponing or cancelling my plans from two years ago, for the foreseeable.

This isn’t all bad, although I am disappointed not be doing much for my big birthday, it’s all because I am now expecting my miracle baby.  They say things happen for a reason and this little one has been so wanted for so long, that that is so much more important to me right now. Other things can wait…

It means I’m going to hold off on 90% of my plans, and hopefully I can achieve some of them one day, perhaps I can do something for my thirty first birthday next March instead to make up for this year…

So instead of pondering on what I was meant to be doing this month I am focusing on things I can do instead! Plus putting together a little wish list has taken my mind off things too. Now the weather has been bad for weeks I am quite glad I hadn’t booked anything as such, so thanks for that weather! I hope it dissipates before the middle of next week and I can get out and about to see family and friends at least!

So what am I hoping for this year or what have I seen and just loved?

I usually ask family members for vouchers so I can go and buy what I like and take a shopping trip, or like I do most of the time these days, shop online! For both the time convenience and the fact I struggle to do a full day on my feet at the moment. I’ve seen some gorgeous Maternity Wear at both New Look and Dorothy Perkins online…

I will of course let you know if I get anything special this birthday!

Here we go then, this is my Birthday Wish List!

╰☆╮ Wish List 

Olivia Burton – Ladies Enchanted Garden Square Blue and Silver Watch


I first saw these watches by Olivia Burton well over a year ago, and at reasonable prices for their unique look I thought. I have small wrists and therefore cannot wear a lot of watches. Imagine that so many of the faces stick out over the sides of my arm and look ridiculous and you’ll understand what I mean. However Olivia Burton has designed several with smaller faces, this one is only 23mm wide, perfect for me! I love the nature designs on them as well, very fitting for my personality.


Next 12 Piece Marble Dinner Set


I saw these plates advertised on a recent email from Next so I went to the website and checked them out further. I have always liked the look or marble. I prefer the bowls more than anything in this set. I already own some awesome cutlery too so I don’t think I would invest in the entire set, I just really liked the marble effect on the plates. There is an awesome Marble Table Cloth available and I love the look of that! And the Rose Gold Wine Glasses are sold in 4’s…


Tiny Silver – Silver Bracelets with Metal Hearts


I follow Tiny Silver on a variety of social media, and I have always admired the jewellery that is made by them. A lot of it is sterling silver which is what I love to wear myself. These bracelets are sold separately, but how gorgeous would it be to have and wear a set of all 3? I love the various metal hearts and think the simple design is lovely, especially because I have such small wrists too.


Spectrum Collections – Star Struck Water Star Sign Brush Set


I love the look of this set, they are so pretty and totally photograph able! Previous brushes I have purchased have really lasted and wash and use well every time. I would recommend them. This new design featuring your own star signs is unique and unusual.
“Featuring jet black super soft bristles, gold ferrules and matte black handles each of the 8 brushes is finished with an all over scattered star print, with a velvet ‘Water’ pouch bag with fixed gold chain strap, PU leather corners and cosmic foil detailing”.


Free Boheme – Geode Print Rugs


On a recent blog reading spree over Twitter I came across a blogger that I follow and she was raving about the company that sell these incredibly cool looking geode rock rugs! I adore the purple that is meant to represent Amethyst! I think it would look amazing placed in the corner of a room with a chair next to it to sit upon…


I really hope you have enjoyed seeing what is on my wish list! I have a sneaky feeling and hopes that I might be getting some of these items for my birthday, and if I do, then of course I will review them and let you all know what I think.

Have a great month of March everyone!

The Rose Gold Trends That Everyone Can Wear and My Jewellery Wishlist

Rose Gold Jewellery Trends That Everyone Can Wear

Everyone knows that Rose Gold is on trend again this AW17 season. In this short blog post today I’m going to be telling you about two ways that you can wear this gorgeous shade of metal.

You have the freedom to choose your jewellery and wear it whichever way you want to, so that you can have your own fashion. I cannot stand it when brands tell people “you must wear it like this to be on trend”, well no you don’t, style your own fashion people, wear things just how you want to… take inspiration of course, but do as you like and what suits you. I know I do!

Now Rose Gold is available in so many statement pieces this year, so it’s always good to invest in something well made. That is if you can afford it and if you like this colour of metal of course.

There is one particular Trend that I love because of its endless versatility, and that is the “Mixed Metals Jewellery Trend“. The other one is what I would call the “Delicate’s Jewellery Trend” which surrounds one individual type of jewellery and keeps that as the focus point.

The “Delicate’s Jewellery Trend” simply means you focus on one part of your body to wear the jewellery. So if you’ve got a big chunky knit on this winter nobody is going to see your neck or your wrists, so you cover your hands with pretty Rose Gold rings and jewels. If you’re wearing a long sleeve dress for example you would focus on statement earrings to catch peoples eye. By choosing one part of your body it’s all about complimenting the outfit that you’re wearing and showing off your best bits.

The Mixed Metals Trend is pretty simple, you take two or more metals and mix them on a part of your body. The easiest way to achieve this look would be rings on your fingers. You could wear Yellow Gold, Sterling Silver, Rose Gold, Platinum, anything! So long as you mix them between the hands.

Another cool way to use this trend would be earrings, especially if you have a graduated lobe like I do. Using different coloured studs to create this look.

(Here are my own studs, they are from Jewellery Box UK).

I actually saw the character of “Betty” played by the beautiful actress Lili Reinhart, wearing this trend on one of the new episodes of Riverdale. Keep a look out if you watch it, she wore two silver studs and one gold in either ear and it looks amazing! (As is the show by the way if you have Netflix check out Season 1).

Another way to wear the Mixed Metals would be several metal bracelets, these would be harder to match up though so they look like they go together.

The final way you could wear this trend is with necklaces. My TOP TIP would be to wear necklaces of varied lengths, that way the whole of your neckline is covered and peoples eyes are drawn all the way around and down. Try mixing the metals from light to dark or dark to light…

My Jewellery Wishlist

Now it’s time for me to share my wishlist, just a couple of items that I have loved the look of while browsing the web and through emails that I have gotten. A lady has got to have a wishlist hasn’t she 😉
