Coffee Date Catch Up | Jewellery Box

What did I order?

I pretty much always order a large skinny latte with some form of sugar-free syrup. SF Hazelnut generally, but SF Gingerbread in Costa Coffee as this is the only coffee shop around with a sugar free version of my absolute favourite syrup!

What have I been up to this week?

This week has been all about adjusting to life after exams are over. With my anxiety, I find it really hard to settle back into "normal" life and prevent myself from unnecessarily panic about exams that are now finally finished.

However, I am so ready to get back on it with blogging, and my new venture into vlogging - omgaaaad. I've been keeping super organised by using my two notebooks, one basic notebook from WHSmiths and one luxe lil' daily planner from Ohh Deer, to plan blog posts and photoshoots for my blog/instagram. It's been so difficult to juggle uni work and blogging, so I'm pretty excited to dedicate all-day err'day to blogging and vlogging for a few months!

What have I got coming up on my blog?

The main thing associated with blogging that I - umm - seriously cannot wait for is the Bloggers Ball coming up in only a few weeks now. I have absolutely no idea about what I'm wearing yet, and I am having trouble deciding between dressy and casual - any ideas?

Other than that I have a cool variety of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle lined up, as well as some potential travel inspired posts for my mini-series The Travel Kitty! I had to take a little step back from posting over the last two months, so I have a fair bit of catching up to do - but I will make it worth the wait, pinky promise!

Where did I get my new jewellery from?

Oh, you noticed my new shinies? *blushes*

Ahhhh I am totally obsessed with silver jewellery - if you haven't already noticed! Silver pieces really do werk werk werk with every outfit and makeup style, plus if they're sterling they last for ageeees. I am definitely into wearing rings, and there is seldom a day when I go without wearing any.

I am so so so picky with my jewellery, so when Jewellery Box sent me over a selection of these beautiful sterling silver pieces - I was over the moon.  They're all so quaint and dainty, and they're just purrrfect for everyday wear. I decided to wear my ear pins like drop earrings today too! Aren't they gorgeous? 

Check out the awesome photography by Ben Blyth, he's a wizard behind a camera - and these shots have some serious edge to them. He also resides in Cardiff, so if any Cardiff-based bloggers out there need a photographer for a shoot - Ben's your guy.
