Turning 24


I turned 24 last week and had a wonderful birthday. I celebrated with friends and cocktails at the weekend and I spent time with Josh and my family on the actual day. I was lucky enough to be given some amazing gifts, including new photography equipment that I've been wanting for ages (hello, new sturdy tripod) and crafty lifesavers (extra large and glorious light box)! One of my favourite presents from my parents was this solid silver chunky ring. It's from a company called Halo Spoon Rings who sell via eBay, and yes you guessed it, this ring was originally a vintage spoon! It's been polished up and crafted into a wearable piece of jewellery...


I am so pleased with it, it's just my style, exactly what I would have chosen for myself! I'm nervous of scratching the shiny surface but I also want to wear it everyday so I'll have to get over my fear of damaging it. I was sent some information too, this ring is hallmarked Sheffield 1932. The ring has been bent so the hallmark is visible on the band and I really like that extra tiny detail. The art of crafting spoon rings originated in England in the 1700s when servants who could not afford jewellery would steal silverware from the manor house in which they worked and have them turned into wedding rings!


I'm also showing off my new matte nails in these photos, using the colour 'Battersea Park' by Nails Inc and using a New Look Matte Top Coat (also a birthday present!) I love this manicure for Autumn.

  3. Happy belated birthday! I'm not much older than you (26), but I just loved turning 24. Something about the switch from early to mid-twenties resulted in a huge amount of personal growth and maturity with each year.

  6. You can use heavy paper of all kinds, arranged in cone, then glued together on a spindle sure to make the price of a tree shape. Then with candy colors of all kinds, all over your mother used glue attach a price to make a sweet tree.!
