In my early 20’s I lived with my childhood best friend after we both went through our first long term relationship break downs. We cried together, laughed together for about 2 years we had a lot of fun. We both dated… a lot and we shed tears over one to many boys. Valentines was always something we both dreaded, would we have a boyfriend, would we be spending alone or would we be having an ice cream and movie night together.
The first year living together we agreed that we wouldn’t ‘do’ valentine’s day, that we would spend it together with a take away, even if we had a hot date in the pipeline.
I think for single women, it is a time to just love yourself. Why shouldn’t you feel loved and treat yourself to something lovely, just because you don’t have a partner buy it for yourself. Often they don’t quite get it right anyway… haha.
Go on treat yourself to something lovely this Valentines
I love jewellery, it makes me feel good. Just adding a necklace or a pair of ear-rings can really change up your outfit and finish your look off. Even a simple pair of studs can look lovely.
The Jewellery Box are a fabulous online company, who specialise in sterling silver and 9ct gold. They have a gorgeous selection of jewellery at really reasonable prices. Perfect for treating yourself without feeling guilty about your bank balance after.
My top picks from The Jewellery Box
I have been wanting a tri-colour simple necklace and pendant for a little while, but finding something that I really loved was more difficult than I thought. When I found this lovely mixed gold dipped circle necklace rrp £11.95 I knew it was perfect for me. I quite like things in trios as they represent my lovely little family. On my long term wish list is diamond ring set with 3 large diamonds. Who knows maybe for our 10 Wedding Anniversary in a couple of years, I must start dropping hints to the Hubby.
We recently went to Lapland in search of the Northern Lights so when I spotted these gorgeous Aurora Borealis sterling silver 6mm ball stud earrings rrp £8.65, I just had to get them as a reminder of our amazing trip away. Plus they are lovely.
When we got married my hubby bought me a charm bracelet, which I have worn continuously since we got married. I have been wanting to get something else to wear for a while, and this rose gold beaded bracelet I thought would be just perfect as an alternative item to wear. It’s actually a dipped Stirling sliver that is adjustable and only £11.15.
Just like my love of statement necklaces I also love a pair of statement ear rings, however sometimes are just a bit too much. The Jewellery Box offer a fabulous range of different earrings, and I chose these simple rose gold 3mm studs rrp £3.95. I felt they would be wearable every day and would go with both of my picks for necklaces. I also loved these little 4mm rose gold cube studs rrp £4.25, they will also be perfect for everyday.
What is your favourite item of jewellery? Other than my wedding, engagement and eternity ring I would say it’s all about a necklace.
