Fantastic Mr Fox

Sorry I've been so quiet recently. There hasn't really been one big reason for my lack of blogging, which is pretty rubbish really. It's more a combination of work, uni, Christmas shopping and the annual winter cold that have been taking up too much of my time recently. Thanks to everyone that commented on my last post :) that's the most I have ever had on one single post, which has really made me feel better (plus all the cups of sugary tea!).
I have experimented with taking some outfit photos, I'm not quite sure yet what I think. I do still want the blog to be all about jewellery, so I'm not sure if this is the right way to go. Let me know what you think!
In the mean time I want to share with you this cute fox ring I picked up in Topshop a week or so ago. Every time I look at the little guy I am reminded of the great Roald Dahl tale Fantastic Mr Fox.

The gold look band is from a set I bought in a Topshop sale a year or so ago. It has a tiny black stone and I think the others had different coloured stones. To be honest I only really wear this one as the others were quite strange colours. I love stacking rings, but some that come as a set can look a bit too matchy I think when worn together.

The agate ring I bought this summer from Bijou Brigitte. I go every year on holiday to Spain and I always make a lot of time to visit the various Bijou Brigitte stores in the nearby towns. I think they are a bit like Accessorize, but a lot of the rings and other jewellery don't seem to be mass produced, so once you see something you pretty much have to buy it, or wait for the regret to set in when you go back and it isn't there. The prices are also really quite cheap so I usually bring back quite a few rings and other bits. I loved the fact I hadn't seen any rings similar to this one when I bought it, now I can't believe how much of this design is about at the moment. Slices of agate and other stones like this remind me of going to the Dales on holiday when I was younger, peering in shops that sold hand crafted necklaces made from big chunks of semi precious stones found in the local caves. Keep a look out for some jewellery in this style, I have a feeling it could be around throughout winter and through into spring. Plus if you do buy a real piece of agate or something similar, you are picking up a semi precious piece of jewellery and not breaking the bank, perfect!
