What's on my bedside table


My poor bedside table is an absolute dumping ground. It's only a little cabinet, but it's bursting at the seams with books, magazines and candles. It was high time I gave it a little clear out, so I thought I'd show you what has been living inside it all this time. 
Clockwise (in a spiral motion) from bottom left:
Hot water bottle// Two pairs of scissors (I don't know why there's one pair, let alone two!)// Magazines dating back to 2012// My to-read pile of books// My diary// Passport photos of myself// Beauty samples from magazines// Lavender essential oil// Lip balm box (no lip balm inside)// Benefit lipgloss// Benefit blusher// "Love" sign// Primark, Sainsbury's and Yankee candles// Sudocreme// Candle lighter and lighter// The books I've read this month// The remote for the bedroom light// USB// Tablets// Ticket from Vogue Festival// Pens, pens, pens.

You'll be glad to hear that my bedside table is a lot neater now with only the essentials: Candles, books and my diary. It looks so much nicer!

Sweatshirt: Primark
Dress: Primark

Eee! Look what I have! A My Little Pony sweatshirt to match my My Little Pony jacket! Would it be too much to wear them both together? Probably. Am I going to do it? Oh yes!

This sweatshirt is so soft and snuggly. It's deceptively warm, so it will be perfect for, you know, summer. The good old English summer! It really needs a collar peeking out over the top, so I'll have to try and locate a dress or top with a pretty collar. Here's a close up of the print:
It's so cute! I love how kitsch it is. The children in my class are convinced that these are unicorns, no matter how many times I point out the fact that they do not have horns. Oh well, it will now forever be my "Unicorn Top".

DIY teddy jewellery



Weeks ago now, I came across this teddy bear necklace. I loved it so much, but I didn't have £38 and I wasn't a huge fan of the big, chunky chain. So I thought I'd use the inspiration to create my own version that's a little more "me". In fact, I ended up creating a whole teddy bear collection! 

To make my jewellery, I used a length of chain, lobster clasps, jump rings, a variety of jewellery fittings (studs, ear wires, brooch pins), mini pliers and cutters, and a whole load of cute little pink teddies!

The first thing I did was cut the chain to my desired length. There was no fancy way of working this out. I just held it up to my chest and thought "Eh, that'll do". 
 I then used my needle-nosed pliers to open up a jump ring and pop a lobster clasp on. 
Next, I looped a jump ring around each teddy. Luckily, they came with little thread hooks at the top so it was easy to put them on. I decided on five teddies, and I wanted them to be close enough that it looked like they were holding hands.
I started with the middle teddy and, surprisingly enough, placed him right in the middle of the chain when the lobster clasp was fastened. I put the other four teddies either side, counting the links to make sure they were placed at even intervals. 
 After completing my necklace, I made two earrings: One using the dangly ear wires and one using the stud. As one of my ears is stretched, I only tend to wear fancy earrings in my right ear. I usually just wear plain studs in my other 6 holes, so there's no need for a pair of matching teddy earrings. I can always make another one if I like- I have enough teddies for it, after all!
 Finally, I sewed a brooch pin to the back of one teddy to make a little teddy badge.

I'm eventually going to make a hair barette with teddies too. I have the barettes, but I need some form of glue to stick them down. I can't wait until I can complete my collection!

So there you have it: My teddy bear jewellery. What do you think?

Top: Peacocks
Skirt: Cath Kidston

This skirt has the greatest thing ever: Pockets! I wish every skirt had pockets. It's so convenient to just pop my iPod in there and save ruffling around in the black abyss of my bag! I actually own three of these Cath Kidston skirts. I love the shape and they are so comfortable. I really recommend them!

Dress: Black Milk
Skirt: Topshop

This is what I wore when I travelled down to Plymouth to see Leona. I love this dress, although it's very short and tight, so I feel much more comfortable wearing it under a skirt. It does have a tendency to wiggle down, so I need to be very careful to hoist it up every now and then, but I really do love it!
