Daring to be Darling, Delicious and Different…

Hello there, lovely internet peoples! I trust you’re all getting through the week with minimal hitches, glitches and bumps. As for me, I am DYING with the cold, and so I’m typing this from bed in cute n’ cosy avocado pyjamas.

So, I’m not the most girly person out there. I like make up and jewellery and clothes just the right amount, but if you know me well, you’ll know that I generally don’t wear an excessive amount of any of these things (except clothes; gosh, that sentence could have veered off somewhere…). I think most of my friends would describe me as quite a quirky person- I don’t really like to follow the crowd when I can avoid doing so. Back in High School, when I was 13, I used to paint my nails a different, crazy colour every day, and wear a hairband to match, whilst all the other girls ran off to the toilets to paint on another layer of foundation. I was never “cool”, but I knew that being different and a little bit eccentric was a good thing.

Which is why, when I discovered Eclectic Eccentricity, I felt like I was in heaven. They design beautiful jewellery, which is always a little bit different- quirky, unique and absolutely stunning. It’s well made, very affordable, and just gorgeous! Over the past year, since I discovered them, I’ve put in quite a few orders, and so I thought I’d share with you guys some of the amazing things I’ve got.

RINGS

Of all the jewellery I wear, rings are probably my favourites. I’m really lucky to have a few pandora rings,  but I seem to reach for my EE rings so much more, as they’re so unique and quirky.

My first ring was this cute little double heart number which was a gift from my lovely boyfriend last year. It wraps around your finger; the amazing thing about these rings is that you don’t have to worry about “what size” you are- they are all adjustable! This one is a golden, brassy colour, and I love it. So simple, yet so cute. Chris bought it for me as a surprise the summer before I went to live in France, and so I used to wear it while I was away and I missed him.

Chris also bought me a “star” version too, with the same idea- it wraps around the finger, and is also really comfortable to wear, as well as being a really pretty design.

Last week, I treated myself to two new little numbers- firstly, this cool little infinity ring. Again, you can adjust this ring to fit your finger. It’s really different to any of the other rings I have- I love how there’s no “band” as such, it’s just one big infinity symbol which wraps around your finger. I think it’d make a lovely gift for a girlfriend for an anniversary, or something cute like that.

The last ring I have is quite possibly my favourite. I’ve bought two as birthday presents for two of my girlies, but I loved it so much, I had to buy one for myself too! It’s a little brass bicycle ring. It made me think of my trips to Amsterdam- the relaxed city with all the bikes lined up along the river… Such good memories, and now every time I look at the ring, I’ll remember how much I love that city.

EARRINGS

I’m lucky to have two lovely pairs of earrings from these lovely people.

The first ones I got were these quirky little numbers. Now, admittedly, I don’t really change up my earring game much; I mostly wear little gold hoops, or a special pair I got from someone very dear to me for my 18th. But these, again, are so adorable, and another lovely gift, so they convinced me to switch it up a tad.

My FAVOURITE earrings, though, are a pair that I can’t find right now, annoyingly enough!  They’re a little moon and star, and they are honestly the nicest little earrings I’ve ever seen. I got my ears pierced a second time last March, and they work really well as my little “second earrings”. I know they are somewhere in my bedroom, but I swear my life has been so unorganised since I came home from France. They’re pictured down below, as we move along to…

NECKLACES

I have two fabulous necklaces. The first is this seriously rad stone necklace, again a present from the bae. It’s so me and so different and I love it. I love wearing it with my “hippie” clothes- loud patterns, bright colours and pizzaz.

Guys and dolls, this is my favourite part. I saw this necklace on Instagram AAAAAAAAGES ago, and I knew I needed it. It was the first thing that drew me to the website, like a bee is drawn to flowers. Joking aside, it’s a little bumble bee, with a little piece of Amber honey. My flipping name is Amber, for pete’s sake- I love having amber jewellery! So the fact that it was constantly sold out made me very sad- until that fateful day, when I found out they’d come back in stock. Yay! It’s by far my faaaaaaavourite piece of jewellery I’ve ever bought myself, and I wear it all the time. Everyone always compliments it, too! I am so happy it’s finally in my possession.

 

So that’s it! Seriously lads and lassies, these people are brilliant. They make gorgeous jewellery, which is perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, or just a wee treat to yourself (the latter is the best, methinks). The packaging is also seriously cute- lovely little boxes with gorgeous, blue tissue paper.

(ps, my nail polish is Essie’s Mint Candy Apple, if you’re curious!)

Go check them out, you will NOT regret it.
