#SBBC Day 2 - Favourite Jewellery

Hi!

Today is Day 2 of the #SBBC, which you can read all about by clicking the link on the sidebar. For today, we have a choice between either a favourite eye palette, or favourite jewellery.

I don't really have many eye palettes - the ones I use the most are probably the Khloe Kardazzle palette from Kardashian Beauty (available from Cloud 10 beauty) and the MUA Undress Me Too palette (available from MUA) - I love both of them, they're both great for everyday use, and that's about the height of it. I'm no good at eyeshadow swatches and I'm not very skilled in the makeup department so I'm going to show you some of my favourite jewellery pieces instead.

Don't let the words "jewellery pieces" deceive you - apart from my engagement ring, wedding ring, two other rings, a pair of earrings and a bracelet, I own no expensive jewellery. It's all fairly standard novelty 'trend-led' stuff, and I love it all. I love dodgy looking rings that turn your fingers green, I love chains that look like something from a lucky bag, and I love earrings that have prompted my husband to ask, on more than one occasion, when my big fat gypsy wedding will be taking place.

Most of this has been accumulated over the past few years from a variety of places - boot sales, markets, Penneys, sale racks, asos.com, eBay, amazon - and it all lives in a multitude of boxes/dishes/bowls in our wardrobe.

I've broken it down into three parts - earrings, necklaces, and rings. I've noted on each picture where the items came from originally, but bear in mind I've had most of this stuff ages, so it's doubtful any of it is in stock now, apart from the eBay stuff.


















I'm a bit mortified to say that that's not even all of it, just the stuff from one jewellery box and one dish. If I took pictures of everything you'd be here all day - but this gives you a general idea of the kind of stuff I can't resist!

    1. That's a two-finger ring, I think it was only a euro or something mad like that? eBay is great but dangerous! x
