Tartan and Crosses

Hello all, apologies for my lack of blogging (again) I have been super busy this week putting in the Christmas windows at work and it's tired me out so much. Today's post is for a lovely little online shop called Butterflies and Belles it's quite new and it sells some really lovely handmade pieces, from rings and brooches to hair bows and kindle covers. @khanadakrueger from Butterflies and Belles asked me if I would like to choose a couple of items to promote on my blog, I was more than happy to because they really do have some gorgeous things and it's important to support new business'. That's enough talking for now, here are some pictures.








Tartan Brooch, c/o Butterflies and Belles
Daisy Cross Ring, c/o Butterflies and Belles
Blouse, River Island - £35
Acid-wash High Waisted Shorts, Missguided - £19.99

As you can see, my items from Butterflies and Belles came beautifully packaged which I thought was such a lovely touch. I absolutely love what I chose, the brooch is so on trend with the tartan pattern and cross embellishment! I decided it would look nice to be worn as a bow tie; I'm a huge fan of statement necklaces and this makes a really nice alternative. The ring is so lovely, I chose it because it also has a cross like the brooch which means I can wear them as a set. I love unique little pieces like these, and I must point out that the items from Butterflies and Belles are really cheap which is amazing because so much time and care has gone into making them (and I think they're worth a lot more). I really recommend this new business and I hope you all support them and buy some bits. If you follow @khanadakrueger  on twitter you'll see that she's been making some gorgeous hair bows for Christmas that I will be purchasing as they are so so cute, they would make perfect stocking fillers. So, yes, I urge you to check them out :) x

  3. You are really rocking that red lipstick girl! Love the acid wash denim shorts and I like how you styled the bow. I think tartan looks best in small doses like you did it here. Well done.
