Staples

Two things you’ll never catch me without; firstly, some cute gold details. I usually buy my stacking rings from H&M in bulk. Inexpensive, quirky and easily replaceable if you lose them which I do all too often. Secondly, for me gel nails are a must. They’re the way forward and I can’t remember the last time I used polish. It’s definitely a few years ago now though. Not only do they last for ages (about two weeks) and stay looking fresh but they also help sustain your nail growth. Pretty much a perfect solution to annoying nail varnish which never went beyond a day. I own a Sensationail Kit. It’s a much more cost-effective way to always having great looking nails.

Trend Alert – Stacks on Stacks

IMG_1855

Stacking gold rings have by far been my favourite micro trend of 2013, so much so that they have become a staple addition of mine. I recently bought a few cute ring sets from H&M as you can see in the above photo. If you’re looking to invest in some stacking rings, I suggest you get these, these and these from Hennes. Then mix n match your favourite pieces. The possibilities are endless!

Stacked Up Pleasures

Three things that I love to do when I travel is to check out local culture, music and fashion. As someone who loves to have a few exclusives in my wardrobe, holiday shopping is a total must. Indulging and seeking out local brands, especially boutiques, is a great way to ensure your wardrobe remains unique and cutting edge.

So, about three weeks ago when I made a flying visit to Chicago, it was a total breath of fresh air when I came across Henri Bendel. The Bendel boutique has been around since 1875, so to you this may be old news, but to me it was news. With a range that includes a selection of fine handbags and jewellery, the Bendel brand is definitely the ‘beacon of luxury’ it aims to be.

Below is a selection of my favourite ‘Stacked’ up Bendel rings, made with the finest of Swarovski crystals and available in gold, rose gold and silver. We all need a statement ring or two to either vamp up or complete any outfit. These Bendel beauties guarantee to do just that!
