Cactus Jewellery For Plant Ladies: The New Collection is HERE!!

Cactus Jewellery, Plant Lady Jewellery, Cactus Necklace, Papel Picado Jewellery

My brand new collection of handmade jewellery has just launched today! I’ve been hinting about it for a while on social media, but I wanted to make sure everything was right before I launched the cactus jewellery collection and it took a little longer than I hoped, which is always the case, haha!!

Just before Christmas Stu took me on a surprise trip to Sicily for my 30th birthday – I had wanted to go to Sicily for so long, I literally banged on about it every time we saw limoncello or gelato or anything remotely Sicilian! During our trip we trekked along the coast to an amazing town built into the cliff edge at Taormina and there I found the most inspiration I had felt in a long, long time.

We spent hours wandering along the cobbled streets taking photos and awe-ing over the insane views out over the sea – I have never, even seen a sea so blue and scenery so green – it was breathtaking!

During our wanderings I came across this plant lady and thought she was completely amazing with her kooky hair, so when I got home I set about recreating her into a memory I could wear every day around my neck. It was the perfect way to learn how to use my brand new laser cutter, affectionately named Burke, who hangs out in my garage workshop.

So here she is: part perspex, part plywood and hand painted with a few flowers in her cactus hair and some fabulous earrings of her own. I love her a little bit too much I think, haha!

Head over and check out the rest of the collection of cactus jewellery in my Etsy shop and please do let me know what you think!!

Outfit Post: Orla Kiely at Tintagel Castle, Cornwall

Clifftop View Cornwall

If you’ve been following along on Instagram Stories, you will know that last weekend we hopped on a train to Bristol and then hired a car to drive into the beauty of Cornwall. I mean just look at that breathtaking view! The 11 hour journey was well worth it. This was day two at the English Heritage ruins of Tintagel Castle – over a hundred steps above ground level. Sitting on the edge of the world was worth every single one.

I bought this blouse from the Orla Kiely sample sale in London a few years ago. They seemed to be doing them quite regularly once upon a time, but I haven’t seen it be mentioned for quite a while recently. I bought this top, a cute tan shoulder bag and a beautiful patterned dress for rock bottom prices – all brand new and in perfect condition. It is silk, though, so I’m always terrified I’m going to ruin it every time I wear it. I am not dainty!!

My jewellery is from Black Willow Jewelry, both were really special gifts from Mummy Oneten and Stu as they’re quite pricey (completely worth it, of course, as they’re handmade!). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve panicked when I lose that ring for even 5 minutes, I think it’s my most favourite item I own and I wear it every day. Those special pieces can really change the way you feel, can’t they? Sometimes when life is sucking, all I have to do is look down at the sparkly, mystic quartz on my finger and feel loved. I absolutely adore how the colours match the sea.

I’m definitely a water baby – I love to swim, even though I’m not very good at it, and something about being in the sea air just makes me feel so happy and peaceful. I also had a super strong coffee before we attempted all those stairs up to Tintagel Castle (as you may be able to tell from the photo below!) and hanging out with my bestest pals without a care in the world – yep, this was a really, really good day.
