as i go through 4 - 5 pairs of cheap sunnies a year, and i'm paranoid about my eyes and figured my sunglasses probably don't give my eyes great protection, i bought a pair of ray-bans!

Image

these are the largest model of the new wayfarers. and y'all, i don't care if the wayfarer revival is "out". they suit my face, i feel good in them and i think they are timeless. yay! i can't wait to wear them out.

Oh my word, I want this Betsey Johnson watch!

I know I probably shouldn't like this one, but I do. Probably because I'm obsessed with bows, mainly.

Just be nice to me.

The red bow one is DIVINE! What's the price on these babies? (And are those real diamonds on the bottom one?)

Re: Betsy Johnson. You get her bags, tights, and socks at TJ Maxx/Filene's Basement/Marshall's at the end of the season for DEAD cheap. I wonder if these gorgeous watches will show up at the bargain shops later in the year...
There's more than one use for every part

The red bow watch is about $75 at Macys and on Amazon, but it varies in UK prices so you might be able to pick it up cheaper. It comes in red, black, blue and yellow (plus the special white version). I never see any Betsey Johnson over here, which is a shame.

I'm considering getting my ears pierced as I've been drooling over some earrings on the Tarina Taratino website for our wedding. She has some absolutely adorable things on there, plus I quite like the Barbie range (more vintage Barbie, than scary modern Barbie).
Just be nice to me.

You can't beat Black Rayban wayfarer on the coolness stakes. I bought my husband the same pair. He hasn't had a chance to wear them yet ;0) . I really should buy another pair but it might look a bit naff the two of us walking about with the same shades on.
They're good for the eyes too!

haha, yes, i love mine but haven't had time to wear them yet, it's not been sunny enough! i'm one of those people who wear sunglasses all year around (seriously - it's not like the sun is NOT THERE in winter, it makes my sensitive eyes just as squinting and watering) so as long as it's sunny i'll wear mine. but no such luck yet!

I was looking for a more summery messenger bag thing and found this company called Bungalow 360 and bought this bag. It came in the mail yesterday and I cannot stop looking at it.

I got a bit carried away on Etsy and bought these little polymer clay necklaces for more money than I should have but still, I needed perking up:

I can't get over how detailed and pretty they are in real life!

I kind of have to avoid Etsy, because there is just way too much cool stuff on there. And because I only got my ears pierced 3 years ago, I'm still really into buying earrings...

I totally would, but I can no longer justify the number of scarves I have being a resident of South Florida.

On the high street, I don't think anyone can beat Accessorize.
