My inner magpie is in seventh heaven.
Oh how I love it when I discover a new go to place for all things sparkly. And have I found the most wonderful jewellery retailer - Stella& Dot. I'm sure many of people have heard of them as I can imagine anyone who has bought their jewellery would spread the word - it really is gorgeous. As well as their products being so great, the other best thing? You can order online and so don't even have to leave the comfort of your sofa. Clearly I would shop with wine but am always partial to coffee and a biscuit too. Heaven.
You can also host a party which is music to my ears. I am loving the opportunity to turn my sitting room into a retail outlet and have all my friends over for shopping and drinks. So local buddies - watch this space! It's going to be a long summer holiday and I'm loving the idea of having another big get together.
Here is my current favourite bracelet which arrived this morning.
The Renegade Cluster Bracelet
Here is the pic from the website
But I don't think it really does it justice - here's my pic of it and honestly, it's just gorgeous. Plus the packaging is designed to make you feel instantly spoiled the moment you open it. I am a total convert.
Here is my wish list - actually here is the abridged version of my wish list. Otherwise we'd be here for days.
The Nugget Wrap bracelet - which just happens to be in the sale.
Garden party Chandelier earrings - I just love the green of these.
My friend has this Infinity necklace. I am afraid I'm going to have to copy her. Oops. Sorry S.
For statement necklaces, you can't ask for more glamour all year round, than with the completely divine Pegasus Necklace. I love love love it. An instant addition to any plain black top to turn into the perfect evening outfit. Or with just a plain tee and some vintage jeans for a laid back bbq. I need this in my life.
Honestly I could go on forever. I would advise a blissful perusal with a cuppa (or something stronger...) and defy you to find something you love. Stella and Dot Just before I go, I'd definitely check out the sale site where they have the loveliest charms to go layer up on a faceted ball chain necklace. So so cute. This is the necklace and you go and add the charms you want (from the sale section and also from the charm section)
If you would like to have a party - there are details on the website. I can't wait for the summer when I'm sure not everyone will be on holiday and will be more than desperate for an excuse for a girls get together chez moi. Anyone up for it?!
A last minute round up of what I've been wearing yesterday and today. Let's just say I'm loving the weather!!

And today for complete kiddy day - watching swimming this morning, dropping smallest at his school induction this afternoon and then taking the brood after school for swimming and a picnic. Making the most of the "summer"....... My clearly pissed off expression is due to me just having looked at the forecast for tomorrow. Not good. Boots, you're up again.

Hope you're all doing well with the sale shopping. As some have commented, I will say that the Zara sale is due to start (due to my source!) next Thursday 28th. I have my list, anything on yours? I had planned to go to London today in an attempt to perhaps see if I could source an Italy Outfit but my hay fever has attacked me with a vengeance and I woke up feeling exceptionally sorry for myself. (this is clearly the Karma Fairy coming and biting me on the arse as I was crowing last week at having escaped hay fever this year. Tool.) Hence the slob outfit and the slob day.
Tomorrow, I shall try harder!
