Helen and I were recently approached by Gemporia to style up one of their pieces and thought it would be excellent for a warm Autumnal shoot. We had a look through their beautiful selection of ethically sourced pieces and both chose the same favourite- this wonderful two tone leaf necklace in sterling silver and gold plate. I thought this was the perfect outfit to wear with it- isn't it just en pointe for an early Autumn palette?
The necklace is more ornate than I normally wear and looks incredible dressed up or down, so I kept my other accessories to a minimum with just a floral ring and simple bangles to add a touch more colour.

By the way, can we just talk about my hair for a second?? The constant bane of my life is finally doing something right!
I've been moving between pink and purple hair for the past year but I've just gone for a peach rinse and I'm in love. I think it goes nicely with my pale skin and is subtle enough for my office day job. I've also been experimenting with pin curls and other retro sets so that I can be a silver screen goddess and this was pretty much the best I've managed to do on myself. It even lasted a few hours. Totally worth wearing a silk square scarf over my head for, even if it did look like Helen was taking her Granny for an afternoon stroll!

... I realise I am hair-envying myself, but I also know it was probably a one off!! *sob*

Back to the main topic, I like the quality of the Gemporia pieces and I have my eye on many of their hundreds of cocktail rings. They offer a wide range of price points so it is the perfect site for gift- shopping. Although I (unfortunately) have a magical knack for liking the most expensive items in any given list, I have managed to find these incredible pieces- opal and tanzanite ring, green amethyst and lavender quartz ring - all for £30 and under.

This will leave me spare cash for my other favourite treats!
