Primark jewellery purchases - spikes and crosses

 
I had to go into town yesterday to grab a sketch book, so I thought while I was there, why deny myself a little trip to Primark?! In hindsight, this was never a good idea, as I always leave with something. But on the other hand I did only spend £5 on this trip!

Recently, I've not been all too impressed with the jewellery in Primark; mind you I'm quite fussy about jewellery. For one it cannot have any diamante on it - diamante is one of the evils of the world (in my eyes!). Secondly, I tend to buy a lot of my jewellery from eBay. Thirdly, the jewellery section is always absolutely rammed and I'm not a fan of busy-ness! So I braved it yesterday, on a jam packed Primark on a Saturday!

After a scout about I found these 3 beauties. I'd seen the headband on Lily's (LLYMLRS) Primark haul video and decided I needed one in my life too. My hair is a bit plain when it's straight, so it's nice to have an accessory to jazz it up a bit! I'm also going through a bit of a jewellery-less outfit phase in general at the moment, so maybe a cute studded headband like this will jazz my outfits up too. And, it was just £2.50.

The earrings are a bit out of the norm for me. I never ever wear dangly earrings - I just imagine them getting caught in my hair! But these cross earrings were a measly £1, so I had to give them a go. They came in about 4 different metallic shades (rose gold, gold, light silver and dark silver), I went for light silver.

Finally, these spike tunnel-look earrings were only £1.50. I had smallish tunnels up until about 4 months ago when I decided to let them go back to normal (although they definitely don't like they did prior to stretching, pre-warning to anyone thinking of stretching their lobes!). I'm not too sure how I feel about these after trying them on, but I'm hoping I'll grow to like them!

On another note, 5 followers until I launch my giveaway - yep, five more GFC followers and we're there at the big 500! I'm giving away over £30 worth of goodies - exciting!

    1. Hi Robyn
      I would sincerely like to apologise for the inappropriate posting above.
      The social media freelancers we employed took it upon themselves to spam every blog they came across regardless of its content.
      Your site was brought to my attention yesterday, and looking though it I can see that you have taken great care and effort creating something very special, so once again please accept my apologies.

  27. Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.", and so does traveling. Some prefer to be inspired by the former. Others love the latter and would just opt to wander. Evidently, the two have clearly something in common. These two give us a form of relaxation. They soothe our souls. They touch our lives. What if you are able to get the two at the same time? Then you're getting the best of both worlds for sure!
