Tea, Chainmail bracelets and a catch up.

Hello my lovelies. Long time no blog post. I could give you all the excuses under the sun but I know thats not fair on you. I fell outta love with my blog. Simple as that. But I want to re-connect with this part of my creative life so here goes nothing. Welcome to a little catch up on whats happening.

Tea and my new project

This pretty much sums up what I’ve been up to. Appart from working in my main night job, the last few days have been dedicated to working on my shop. And the new project I’m working on. I’ve been making loads of bookmarks to order and other things like beaded bracelets.

We are currently in limbo at the moment. We’re meant to be moving back to scotland but our work is taking their sweet time in letting us know of a moving date. I’m getting to the point where I just want to tell them to shove it where the sun don’t shine. Its very annoying but this has inspired me to get more creative and get more done for the shop.

Some of my chainmail bracelets.
My latest chainmail bracelet

These are my newest projects. The chainmail bracelets are an instant favourite of mine. I’ve made them using the byzantine link formation which is a lovely, classic look. They have helped me stay calm and a great little destresser. I got these links from Panda Hall beads. I actually get a huge amount of stuff from them. Theyre amazing! 😍 Although they do take ages to make. I love making them. Don’t worry, these will defo be going up on tbe shop sometime this week.

I have got loads of plans for the shop but at the moment they can’t happen till we move. Fingers crossed it is sometime this month.

Until next time my lovelies. Xx

A Timeless Watch.

Time. Always saying we have too little time, not enough of it really. I was always bad for running late (still am sometimes!!) And so I thought why not buy a nuce watch. Nothing to glitz or glam. Something sturdy and noticeable. (This investment happened roughly 4 – 5 years ago) And I’ve never been so damn chuffed over a purchase like this. 

Also I can not stand fabric or leather strap watches. The straps always break so easily and get dirty quickly too. Not my cuppa tea ta. I’ll stick to the link watches. 

My loyal and very blue ice watch. It’s a little old yeah. A little battered and seen better days but fantastic non the less. This has been a part of some crazy memories. From meeting my partner and our first date (and many more after that one!!) to all my interviews and some big nights out. Like new year last year! What a night that was. 

And yes I know I wear my watch in an odd way. I find it rather comfortable with the clasp at the outside of my wrist and the face inside. Strange but hay, we all have our quirks. (How do you wear your watch??) 

I bought this for £70 at H. M. Samuel mainly due to the fact that I love blue. Its only ever failed me once when the digit 3 came off and got stuck on the larger hand. That was not fun but not as expensive as I thought it would be too fix. I remember when I lost this once and turned my mum’s place up side down looking for it!!! It turned up eventually under one of the seats on the couch. 

Anyhow I just wanted to share one of my favourite timeless pieces with you. I’m never actually fussed how much something costs. What I love the most is the memories I can make with it. And this watch has some damn good memories, a few bad but hay thats life. 

What’s your favourite watch?? Do you have a timeless piece with some beautiful memories?? 

Until next time beauties.
