Crystalized Chic

I recently discovered and fell in love with a wonderful new collection from Swarovski featuring customizable charm bracelets with lots of different cute and sparkly clip on charms : )

I particularly love anything with aurora borealis crystals as they have a wonderful mesmerizing holographic/rainbow feel to them.

The collection also features a range of kawaii/japanese style charms such as the 'Erika' Charm (in photo above) which is a cute robot-character studded with AB crystals- the body of the character actually moves too!

I bought the Erika Charm, light blue crystal whale charm and the AB heart crystal charm on the silver bracelet.

I now know what I will be getting for my next birdthay/christmas's for a while!

Cruising, and Cocktails, and Cakes! Oh My!

I have just come back from a 2 week cruise sight-seeing around the Mediterranean. (Slight shock being back in the not-so-sunny UK weather!!!)

I saw so many beautiful places and architecture- including Park Guell in Barcelona by the famous Antonio Gaudi, the stunning Colleseum in Rome, The Church San Giacomo in Santa Margherita- Italy, and the pretty and quaint town of Toulon in the south of France.
I particulary adored the architecture on the traditional houses, with beautiful shuttered windows, window boxes and opulent facades.
