Stylish Support

Right back as far as I can remember my family, and therefore myself have been big supporters of The British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. I can’t remember a year where I haven’t purchased a Poppy so when long time jewellery favourite got in touch to tell me about them teaming up with The British Legion I was only too happy to feature them here.
They’ve created this gorgeous and more than a little bit bling Poppy ring to help The British Legion boost their donations from the traditional paper Poppy. The ring costs £12 of which £3.60 will go to the charity. The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading charity that supports serving and ex-service personnel in the British Armed Forces. They also provide care and support for the partners and families of those who serve. I think we all know of someone who’s life has been affected by the Armed Forces- be it 100 years ago or just a few days ago and this is a charity I will always have a special place in my heart for.
You can buy your ring online here and do your bit for charity whilst keeping stylish.
I’ll be sporting this ring alongside my paper Poppy this year and for infinite years to come. 

weekends and wishes

True to form, I’m feeling much better after a fabulous weekend. Friday night, letting my hair down put me back in a good mood and planted a smile firmly on my face.

 How amazing is Becca’s hair? A few weeks ago it was long and blonde. Now it’s PURPLE and amazingly short. I’m obsessed! The necklace I’m wearing was a gift from the awesome people over at Jon Richard (more to come on that as they have an exciting new website and gorgeous A/W collection on the way!)

Something else that seriously brightened up the week was the Fairy Hobmother who lives at Appliances Online
She spends her days visiting blogs and granting wishes. I’ve been desperate for a bread maker for ages now, and danced around the office on Thursday when I received an e-mail saying my wish had been granted.

Make sure you leave your hearts desire in the comments here, you never know…you might be the next lucky person to have a fairy wish granted!
I can’t wait to show off my bread making experiments. If you have a killer recipe, do share!


In Brief

This weekend….

Wearing; FLORALS because I am a walking Spring cliche




Jon Richard ring available here!

Sunshine; The weather has bought out the best in me, I am definitely a S.A.D. person. The emergence of Spring, warmer days and bright, beautiful sunshine has turned me in to a chirpier, more confident version of me.
I celebrated by purchasing these oh so adorable sweets!


Thanking; Witch skincare for coming up with this primer! My saviour!


Geeking; Geeking out over new drug rep pens at work (Becca, if your reading this…the obsession continues!) and these ones are PINK! I will forever be envious of my Mum’s leopard print one.


Hi, my name is Laura and I hoard pens.

Wanting; SO MUCH! It’s always the week before pay day that I find infinite things I want and need in my life, only to have lost interest or not be able to find them when the time arrives! Currently top of my list is this dress from River Island


I have new found love for this shade of blue!

How about you?

A Bit more Bling

I told you there was more jewellery coming and here it is!

The pieces are entirely stunning, each in their own way, of note are the Swarvoski crystal earrings and the amazing skull ring
(oh, and the cat brooch which Mum promptly swiped!)


The interpol gig Saturday night was the perfect time to debut the Skull ring

A skull ring has been on my lust-list for a long, long time so to say I was delighted to receive this is probably the understatement of the year (so far!)

I can’t wait to wear and share the other pieces…
