Dinner parties & anniversaries!

July 23, 2014

QVC 6 (1) QVC 8

Today is the 23rd of July and so marks the 20th anniversary of QVC’s exclusive simulated diamond range, Diamonique. So were talking incredible pieces that are covered in silver or gold & topped off with a stone or two that look and feel exactly like diamonds but don’t include that scarily expensive price tag!

Last week they held a dinner to celebrate and introduce us to the anniversary collection, I’ve been wearing Diamonique for a few years now, so I thought I’d share a little story with you..

It was one faithful autumns evening when I received my first Diamonique piece, it was actually quite similar to the Epiphany Emerald ring from the Anniversary collection, but believe it or not, even more delicate & sophisticated, I literally never took this ring off. It became a part of me; everyone who saw it, thought I had spent crazy amounts on the piece of sparkly goodness. Occasionally I set them straight, other times I just rolled with it. ANYWAY, one day I remember doing the dishes and then doing an autumn clean out, then looking down and realising “my precious” was missing! After I got all of the ‘gollum’ impressions out of my system, I thought about it and was quite sad at the fact that my ring was officially lost. After a few weeks of looking, it still didn’t turn up and so that was the end of the ring..or was it?

You see, I loved that ring but the price wasn’t exactly scary; at £32 I quite simply bought myself another and that’s the end of the story. Yup.

Cool story, huh? The point is they do incredibly cool and chic pieces for such low prices, it might just blow your mind. I have no idea how they make them but in all my years of wearing them my jewellery is yet to change colour. It’s pretty crazy!

So, let’s grab a drink, mine a ginger ale, and raise a toast your next and super exciting purchase from the ever cool and sparkly Diamonique collection AND of course to Diamonique, as it’s their 20th anniversary! *chin chin*

FOOTLOCKER 1

I know a lot of people use the weather to depict the colour scheme of which their wardrobe will be, of course to some extent this makes sense, but with the incredible amount of white clothes that are available at the moment, I honestly don’t see how I can ever let this colour go, like ever ever. It may sound cheesy but I feel like there’s an element of sophistication and coolness that white pieces of clothing possess, so if someone is in all white, my gosh, they’re probably looking mighty fine. Of course the downfalls are many, starting with the basic: Keeping your whites, white. I’m not exactly the kind of person to run into muddy puddles and roll round against walls of buildings as I pass them (..I have genuinely seen people do this) nonetheless mess finds me, mess finds us all.

So picture this, I’m walking around thinking I’m all sophisticated in my all white outfit and things get pretty messy; the outfit’s coolness depreciates so fast, it’s a little depressing and my whites become browny grey & you can tell, it wasn’t the ‘look’ I was going for.
Coming back to reality, Foot Locker let me pick a pair of trainers from their All-White collection that’s in stores/ available online now, challenging me to keep them clean for a week! A week! I mean that’s a pretty fair amount of time, right? How dirty could they really get in a week..

Yeah..so they’re not black or anything but they’re definitely not their original crisp white selves, but it was worth a try!
Currently on Footlocker.eu they have listed a few basic ways to ensure that your sophisticated and cool look doesn’t turn sloppy but in case none of them work for you, perhaps try this..

Shailene Woodley for Teen Vogue’s April 2014

 The latest Teen Vogue is out and features a very cool and boyish looking Shailene Woodley; with multiple movies about to be released, 2014 is definitely going to be an exciting one for the 22 year old actress. I first saw Shailene in the TV show “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”; it’s obviously great when a teenage TV star develops and actually continues down a path that could lead to a long movie career, so i’ll definitely be catching one if not all of her movies this year.
