Gold

Ring Bling With Hello Pretty

Jewellery is definitely a girl’s best friend and I love how wearing many rings is in fashion at the moment. Whether you like big chunky rings or small dainty rings, layer them up to give your look that extra something.

Seeing as though more is more in the jewellery world, you can shop for some cute rings without feeling too guilty! Hello Pretty has some amazing designers and I’ve found five rings that you should add to your collection.

This sterling silver ring from Rollin Vintage is simple but different enough to create a statement. I am loving rose gold at the moment, this rose gold plated diamond ring from WHYJewellery will make you stand out, you should treat yourself.  The resin ring from Sugarbird Jewellery Design is very unique; a dried Gaura Belleza has been set in resin and sterling silver.

The onyx stack ring from Meraki Jewellery Design is a great option for stacking your rings, just as its name suggests. The sterling silver cross-over ring from Muchi Galoosh would look great stacked with others as a midi ring or on its own. 

My favourite is the resin ring from Sugarbird Jewellery, I love that it's something completely different!

Stay golden!

One trend that's been on the go for a while now, and one that we cannot get enough of, is a bit a gold slung around a gal's waist. Well, gold anything really, but what better way to revel in something gorgeous than to drape it around yourself?

Stay golden with Hello Pretty!

Gorgeous no? And what's better is that I know how you can get this look!

Not just any old gold belt mind - a hand cut brass beauty straight from the studio of SMITH Jewellery in Cape Town.

*swoon!*

I was lucky enough to have access to one of the cuffs at last years SAFW Pop Up, and at the end of the media launch I was genuinely heartbroken to have to take it off (We all took it upon ourselves to model some of the fab work of our sellers for the cameras - I can't think of a better excuse to dolly up). The craftmanship is absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you to Sarah from The Angelheaded Hipster and Lara from A Fashion Friend for the SAFW Pop Up pics!

Swoon over it some more on Pardon Our French (they're very fancy over there).

Black, white and gold home

My latest obsession is all things black and white. One of the rest of the planet's latest obsessions is the triumphant return of gold, after its long exile in I'mnotsilverland. I for one couldn't be happier. I'm draping myself in my grans old jewellery and am unleashing my inner magpie. (I have a keen eye for all things shiny.)

Naturally all this obsessiveness leaks out (ok gushes out) into my decorating style. And my decorating style is obviously fabulous so I'm sharing it with all of you! I've chosen all of my favourite monochrome and gold goodies from the site for you here (How nice am I? Right?):

Black, white and gold home

We give pretty gifts too...

I recently waxed lyrical about Kelly from Sunflowers and Spears’s #bloggersecretsanta, and our fab gift from citygirlsearching’s Roxy. But I do have to blow our own horn a little too! Before I had any idea of the amazingness that was on it’s way to us from Roxy, I was more excited to send our gift than receive one - it was so much fun sourcing all the goodies, and I even knuckled down and did a spot of DIY (you can take my word for the fact that I’m no Martha Stewart, and that as a result you should all be impressed).

I decided to do a yellow and gold themed gift, and scoured the site for small but lovely and useful items to include. After finally narrowing down my gigantic list of potential gifts, I settled on these:

A paper plane brooch by Landi Kuhn
A set of button clips by Bow Peep (not strictly part of the colour scheme, but adorable none the less)
A set of gold reindeer vinyl stickers by Match Set Love
And a voucher for the lucky lady to pick out something from Hello Pretty for herself.

Inspired by Lovilee’s “Christmas in a Bottle,” I grabbed a sweet customised Consol jar that I bought at iheartmarket (and made by Sk8shade’s lovely mom), and jazzed it up with a lick of gold spray paint. I quickly became addicted and spray painted everything else, myself and parts of my dog too.

Our recipient is the very gorgeous mom-to-be Samantha, from everythingsamanthahearts, and since soon she will be gifted with a bouncing baby girl, I threw in a cupcake flavoured Yankee Candle for a few moments of indulgent “me-time” every now and then in between the new baby madness. (For all their many many pros, rumour has it newborns don’t sleep much. Mom deserves a candlelit bubble bath every now and then while Dad babysits!)

After a while spent dealing with nail destroying post office anxiety, the glitter and polka dot Christmas box eventually arrived, and I am so happy to report that Samantha loved it. All of us at Hello Pretty wish you the most wonderful Christmas and you have our most heartfelt congrats on the pending new addition to your family. We hope the arrival of baby Olive is the first happening in a long line of other great things that make 2014 your best year yet.

Kisses!
