Dorothy Perkins Jewellery Shopping Haul

Dorothy Perkins isn’t a shop I normally go in but feel I should more often. Maybe by some it’s seen as an older women’s shop but I’ve found they have some gorgeous classic pieces. Once more they have a wide selection of sizes including a tall section.

When I was looking round DPs this week I found there jewellery sale was particularly fantastic. Many items were 50%. I love brooches for pinning on coat collars and berets. The ones I picked up have a cool vintage vibe which I adore.

I’ve noticed a few fashion bloggers like mixing gold with silver. I spotted a two pack of slinky bracelets in gold and silver and just had to pick it up!

I bought four separate items and it all came to £14 which in my opinion is a great bargain. I also like to mix it up a bit because I kind of stick to primark jewellery for value but because of a sale I’ve ventured into another shop for this.

I hope you like the pieces I picked up. Do you wear brooches? Do you find you stick to the same shops and would you consider checking out Dorothy Perkins? You should!

Blue and pink brooch £3.00 (SALE originally £8.50)

Gold and silver bird brooch £3.00 (SALE originally £8.50)

Hey! :)

How are you today?

I started my Christmas shopping this week which I’m so glad about. I’m so not a last minute person, most the time I’m super organised so it feels good to have made a start. 

I noticed through web surfing primark have a new website. I thought this was so cool and they upload there latest collections just as they hit the shops. It’s nice to get an idea whats in before you go. Have you checked out there website? Just type in primark in google.

I thought I would share one of my latest polyvore sets with you. I’m getting into the Christmas spirit a little with a few of my polyvore sets and collections.

Who doesn’t like to curl up with a book and mug of hot chocolate?! At the moment I am reading The Gift by Cecelia Ahern which is a Christmas novel. I love it and so far it’s really heartfelt and filled with unexpected twists. I’m near the end so let me know if you would like a review when I’m all done.

Do you like reading Christmas novels? How are you getting into the festive spirit?
