There’s something to be said for branching out and when a blogger, or a vlogger, decides to add to their online presence and do more with their success then I’m always really happy, and inspired.
When I got an email from the very lovely Shannon from Raspberrykisses informing me that she’d started up a new business then I was so pleased. ‘Dreams and Sparkles’ is a lovely little site offering fashion jewellery and accessories at incredibly reasonable prices and when she asked if I’d like a surprise package to feature on my blog I think I’d have been daft to say no!
From the jewellery section I was sent this Skeleton Hand Necklace. When I first saw it I wasn’t sure how I felt about it; it’s Exactly what I’d have gone for a few years ago because I was still really big on skulls and skeletons but I’m more of a flowers and birds kinda girl now.
That aside, it’s grown on me. I think it’s kinda cool, I love the shade of metal it’s in and the shape of it, I dunno I like it. Maybe I shouldn’t have been in such a hurry to stop wearing the sorts of things I used to like, there’s plenty of space for all of them!
The necklace is an amazingly priced £1.50 so you really can’t go wrong – There’s a range of other lovely necklaces (some of which I’m tempted to order myself), bracelets, ring and earrings available on the site, too, for a range of different tastes.
When I knew I was getting sent some things I hoped I’d be sent one of the cute, little coin purses, as I’m an absolute sucker for purses, so I was very pleased with this. It’s only small, but what do you expect for £3? I love the pattern of the fabric and it’s just what I need right now. I’ve been taking the lightest bag I can when I pick Ethan up from school on my two days but that means no purse so I’ve been thinking about trying to find something small, and light, to take in the bag so that I have just a bit of money with me when I go out, I always feel so vulnerable with nothing – This little purse should be perfect.
As I said above, there’s not a lot on the site yet but there’s some real gems at prices you won’t often see, so it’s well worth taking a look as you never know what’ll catch your eye. As well as all of the sections I’ve mentioned above there’s also a beauty section which, currently, has press on nails in it.
I really look forward to seeing how things progress for this little, start up, company as Shannon is lovely and she’s got a great idea which has been put together really well. Check out
