All Things Gold

For the past couple of months it seems I've had a growing obsession with all things gold. It probably all stems from this Ted Baker iPad case which I spotted in December (and Josh sneakily bought it for me for Christmas!) So today I'm sharing some of my newest purchases and presents...

After much deliberation, I finally upgraded my little 4S to a shiny new iPhone 6! I'm so pleased I took the plunge as I love my new phone and didn't realise how much I needed the upgrade. The 6+ was too big for my hands, this is much more suitable and still so much bigger than the 4S screen I've been used to. I'm planning on really pushing my iPhone photography this year and being much more creative with my 'pocket photos'. (I'll be blogging about the iPhone 6 camera soon!) My case was a cheap one from eBay - it's just a clear plastic one to let the gold shine through apart from two glitter bands top and bottom which make it extra sparkly. 

This Christmas I was treated to lots of new makeup, including the Clarins 'All About Lips' Christmas Gift Set (featuring two lip perfectors!) I came across this Ciate polish in the shade 'Spending Spree' in TKMaxx for a discounted price. This is the polish I wore on NYE and it's lasted so well. It's still holding up well today. I was also given a Ted Baker 'Shades in Waiting' gift box which as well as lots of other eye products, included these three eye crayons in metallic gold, silver and bronze. Beautiful creamy sticks which I've been testing out already. (Of course I needed my iPad mini to match) So I bought this metallic case on eBay - it's a semi clear plastic back with a gold tint and a gold smart cover...

Finally, I've got to mention this little rose gold beauty - it's a Links of London friendship bracelet and it's the perfect piece for layering or wearing alongside a watch. I was kindly gifted this by the company before Christmas and I've been wearing it so much over the festive season. It's one of those, wearable everyday and on special occasions bracelets.



  1. I love the gold theme, everything looks so luxurious and classy! I seem to have a pink theme going on at the moment but I think I need to upgrade to something a little more sophisticated after reading your post! :) x

  2. Love that case, lucky younger boyfriend notices these things. I've been considering one of those links london friendship bracelets, I got a charm one instead though

  3. I like your style. Gold is naice. Naice indeed.

  4. I love the little Ted Baker clutch / bag. I've been looking at Ted Baker bags so many times before becuase they always catch my eye. Some day.... :)

  5. The IPad case is really nice! Nice pics too:)


  6. Gold is wonderful choice, if it's not too shiny, it can give a smooth look.

  8. Everything is so pretty and that iPad case has been on my wish list for ages because of how lovely and pretty it is. I've been bossed with gold as well lately and I'm hoping to upgrade my 4s to a 6 soon too so I'd love to know more on what you think before I get the upgrade.
