✳ ✴ ✵ ✶ ✷ ✸ ✹ ✺ dressing table ✽ ✾ ✿ ❀ ❁ ❃ ❋

Here are a few pictures of my jewellery box, followed by my vintage plate of my favourite necklaces, followed by my favourite makeup bags/purses or whatever else I use them for. As you can tell, my dressing table is compacted with immense varieties of colours and patterns. I’m always mixing it around because I have so much stuff sitting on it and want everything to be seen, but I like the arrangement of how it is right now.

I don’t particularly like strong perfumes. My favourites are Daisy by Marc Jacobs and Miss Dior by Chanel. I also have a few miniature bottles, they’re so cute and are amazing scents.

My absolute favourite product on my dresser is my jewellery box. My mum picked it up for me at a fair near to where I live. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It’s so different to anything else and I admire it every time I open it. It stores my dangly earrings as well as my bracelets I have purchased each year at the Ibiza hippie markets. Beneath in what I call the ”secret section” are valuable belongings such as saved up money for my Reading fund! 😀

I’m no quite sure where this vintage plate came from, but I’m pretty sure it was passed down from my mum’s side. I love being able to lay out my favourite possessions. Surrounding it, are candles, perfume bottles, my vintage hand mirror and a picture of my sister and I many moons ago.

Another thing that I love having in my table is flowers, especially bright coloured ones. I think that they are the final element in bringing my dresser to life.

I use my dressing table to develop my sense of style and how I like to present my style. It is a great way of being able to express yourself.

❇ ❈ Moonstone Madness ❁ ❃ ❋

I have recently fallen in love with moonstone jewellery. I love the transparency and the mysteriousness of the stone, particularly if it is surrounded by a slightly irregular shape. I love how the name conjures images of the moon glowing at night. They possess a mysterious shimmer which alters in different light. The Romans believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon. In India, one of the countries of origin, the moonstone is regarded as a holy, magical gemstone. They also are believed to bring the wearer beautiful dreams at night.

Moonstones can be incorporated into all types of jewellery, not just rings. However, the rings appeal more to me, simply because of their unique detail that sits around the moonstone. I love how each ring tells a different story.

Moonstone is a sodium potassium aluminium silicate.

There are many shops that you purchase one of these beauties. All of the rings below are from one of my favourite jewellery providers shopdixi. They too sell all kinds of jewellery with all kinds of stones.

Other shops I love that sell similar pieces or that just provide pure inspiration are: Ohm boho   cxrmed jewellery   earth jewellery   shop moonstone    regalrose

Ibiza purchases

This year I was really determined to come home with a stunning  piece of boho jewellery with the money I had been saving all year.

My first purchase was a turquoise and coral coloured necklace. I love it because it’s so different to anything you’d find in pretty much any place in London as well as being the perfect size for wearing around in a completely different culture. I am obsessed with the little details and the touches of coral around the golden squares with turquoise in:

We spent a lot of our time with great family friends, and my mums friend very kindly bought me and my sister a  little Mexican wooden cat each. She told us she used her one to stack up her rings on the tail, so that’s what I shall use mine for 😀

I found this bag at the Es canar hippie market. I had been searching for an Indian styled hippie bag ever since I arrived and when I spotted this I knew I wasn’t letting it out of my hands. It is very difficult to decide whether you are going to buy a bag or not, but I felt this particular one was for me. I love the colour lilac and this was the only purple one I had seen. At thirty Euros, it was a bargain.

Having recently had my cartilage pierced, I was very happy to have seen this gold hoop with a slightly different appearance to it. Its detail is subtle but I love that it is completely unlike any gold hoop I would have ever bought in London.

I have quite recently acquired these necklaces, the red dream-catcher from a friend, from Portobello, the blue detailed ethnic necklace from my trip to Marrakech and the silver dream-catcher from Black Pearl at Brick Lane. I love wearing them, and today I have mixed them up by combining two of them. Each one is symbolic to me, and have different meanings. ♥☺
