Hedgehog & Snail Inspired Animal Jewellery

Back in 2011, I was introduced to an adorable jewellery brand called Sphere of Life, which I have posted about numerous times on my blog as I’m sure you know. Animal inspired jewellery is one of my favourite things, not just because of my love for them, but because I think it makes a quirky piece of jewellery which always has a talking point. I was happy to collaborate on this post with Market Cross Jewellers as it means I could share something I love with you. I decided to do a get the look post and since they stock Sphere of Life, it was a perfect fit! Do you remember this hedgehog necklace that I got a long time ago from the brand? I did a giveaway with it, but it’s one of the brands staple pieces from their collections, so it’s often available to buy in local jewellery boutiques in London, Birmingham, Manchester and other cities. This is why I’ve done this get the look post, as I knew so many of you loved the necklace! The hedgehog is called Cuddles and is wrapped up in a ball with his little feet sticking out, it’s adorable! I’ve also included a Sphere of Life snail necklace from them, however I don’t own that particular one, I just love snail inspired jewellery! You can see in the other photos just below that I have a really pretty gold snail ring which I bought from the Topshop store in Bath about 2 years ago, so it inspired me to also include the snail necklace in this post. Both of them I…

Relaxing At The Park In A Leopard Maxi Skirt

(Skirt – Similar, Top – Exact, Sandals – Exact, Sunglasses – Exact, Necklace – Similar, Bracelet – Exact) I wore this outfit on Friday when I went to the park to wind down. I usually don’t feel the heat because I have cold hands and feet all the time, but on this day I was actually almost roasted and I had to go and sit in the shade after 10 minutes. It was really nice to just lie there on the grass and blanket and just appreciate the quiet. Like I mentioned in my previous post, the weekend really was some much needed rest for me. I’m wearing an unbranded Leopard maxi skirt, a Miss Selfridge burgundy tank top, ASOS Flossy sandals, Ray Ban Cat Eye sunglasses, H&M bracelets, my Urban Outfitters Deer necklace, my Gina Stewart Sapphire bracelet and my beautiful Sphere of Life Mosaic bracelet. I went with this outfit as it was something really simple and bold at the same time. Apart from the accessories, nothing cost me over £18. The skirt was a find on eBay under £10 and the tank top was cheap too. I always have the thought process that if something looks good and seems to be made quite well, then it doesn’t matter if it has a designer name on it or not. I just usually like what I like, whether that’s unbranded things or not. By the way, the Sphere of Life Mosaic bracelet giveaway ends in 3 days, so make sure you enter to win the beautiful bracelet!

CLOSED! WIN A Beautiful Sphere Of Life Mosaic Bracelet!

This contest is now closed and the winner is Lorna Garratt @dipsymummy! Congratulations! Sphere of Life have teamed up with me again to giveaway one of their brand new styles! The mosaic bracelet! The new design has only recently just become available and is already incredibly popular! The Mosaic collection is a silver plated collectible bracelet made of colourful square “icons”. The idea for this collection came when the brand got their shiny new smart-phones. They just loved the colourful icons on the screen, telling them a whole story using just a tiny picture. The Mosaic icons also tell a story using a lovely variety of images and designs. To make it even more special, each item is engraved with its story – even the Initials Icons – so you will always remember the meaning behind your Mosaic collection. There are over 100 icon designs (which you can see here) and all of them are individual and unique. You can see my bracelet in the photos here in which I chose a heart, love birds, a palm tree, paw prints and a beautiful blue crystal. These represent me as I love romance, animals and nature. It’s also one of the most comfiest bracelets I have worn. The winner of this giveaway will get to choose 3 icons, 2 stoppers and a bracelet! That’s a gift worth quite a lot of money! All you have to do to enter this giveaway is follow Sphere of Life and Raindrops of Sapphire on Twitter (click names to follow) and then tweet the following entry: CONTEST – RT & Follow @Mysphereoflife & @LornaRaindrops to…

CLOSED! WIN A Cuddles The Hedgehog Necklace From Sphere Of Life!

This contest is closed and the winner is @alysiatweet! Congratulations! I have teamed up with the wonderful company Sphere of Life to give you Raindrops of Sapphire fans the chance to WIN a gorgeous Cuddles the hedgehog necklace! They gifted one to me which you can see and it’s absolutely adorable! It’s on a long chain so you just slip it over your head and wear it quite long and it looks great because the actual hedgehog is quite big, Cuddles is 2.5cm big and has black crystal eyes. The packaging is also another favourite of mine. The hedgehog comes in a metal sphere with burgundy satin lining and in a little burgundy net bag. Both of these are then in a Sphere of Life box which is inside a gift bag. It looks like the perfect present!
