Earrings, green marble and thoughts about Primark

primark

Let's talk about Primark, I don't very often visit their store but I happened to be there the other whilst picking pieces for a shoot. I must say that this time I was happily surprised, there is some good stuff there (for a very good price!). Not only did I find good pieces for the shoot but I also stumbled upon those earrings on the picture above and for two pounds (!?). I really couldn't resist them. Go to Primark folks!

The art of packing light – Part one

Gold earring takes no place in the luggage but makes a big difference when styling your outfit

I'm not in any way calling myself a master of packing, there is way more people who master that art better than me, but practice makes perfect. I have traveled with only hand luggage at least 4 times a year for the past 4 years, so I think I still have a few things I can add to this subject.

Right now I'm about to board the plane for a Christmas holiday in Sweden with my family, but before I thought I would share two of my tips for packing light.

1. Bring a lot of tops. A T-shirt or a top can change the look of one pair of trousers, depending on the color, the fit, the print etc. The good thing with t-shirt is that they take next to no space in the luggage, so you can do the math. Different T-shirt equals many looks.

2. Earrings. A pair of gold earrings can make the simplest outfit look expensive and chic. The same thing here, they take hardly any place in the luggage but make a big different when creating an outfit.

Now time for boarding, see you in Sweden!

H&M gold ball earrings

I'm gonna be honest, of course I would love to get the real deal as in the ball earrings from Celine, BUT when H&M does a replica for only 7 pounds and you are on a tight budget there is not much to do or say. You just buy them.

These are the perfect earrings that you can wear dressed up or more casually dressed down. And the best thing is that today ou can get them for only 3.50 pound HERE!!!!!!

Here's a few other earrings from H&M I wouldn't mind with the same minimalistic yet interesting touch. Perfect for the upcoming holidays as they look good in both a warm cozy knit and as well as in a dress.

Ear candy

hoopsargosCan you spot my earrings? I know they are tiny, but that's kind of the thing. I realized  that when it comes to earrings I prefer either massive ones or teeny tiny. The hoops are perfect, just big enough to make their way around the earlobe and no bigger. And  guess what, they are made of 9 karat gold, not gold plated but pure gold and they cost no more than a dinner out at the local pub (17 pound that is). The little star is just to add an extra touch and make it more fun. My perfect everyday earrings!
