ACCESSORIES – JEWELLERY

(POST NOT SPONSORED IN ANY WAY)

Hey guys hope you are all well, the winter season has definitely kicked in and the hibernation has kicked in too lol (winter just sucks!). So recently I have been looking at items on the AliExpress app and I found quite a few things I wanted to buy but, you hear a lot of people saying that these kind of sites are scams and what you order is not what you get and you might not actually get the item you paid for. So I decided to do my own research and I came upon a post about how to find out if the sellers (on AliExpress) you want to buy from are  genuine and how to tell that the are legit.

The post talked about how to find certified paperwork to prove they are real, the ratings of customers, checking if the sellers website is real, checking pictures of the warehouse etc. The post was really helpfully, so I bit the bullet and decided to order some jewellery which wasn’t expensive just in case I got scammed.

Now if you have ever looked at websites like Aliexpress, you will see that their stuff looks so nice and cute you just want to get everything but you have to remember that their dress sizes are so different to the rest of the world ( hence why I chose to buy jewellery). But here are some of the items I bought which I think are just too cute!

These are flower earings, they had other colours but I chose these two. I have never really seen flower earings like these so I had to get them. I think they are quite unique.

So though I dont wear necklaces a lot i had to pick these up. The bottle and the bird and branch necklaces are just adorable! they are just different and I like that about them. They look like they are telling a story which is beautiful.

This one is a necklace pendant. When I saw it on the site it  was on a necklace and when it came it was without one which I don’t mind. The pink colour makes it so cute and it stands out, it also has a silver stone for a leaf which adds glam to it.

This is one of the cutest broaches I have seen in a while. The blue is just stunning, its so girly and so me. I don’t actually have any broaches because when I would see some they looked tacky and not my style but this one was right up my street.

Ok guys lets take a moment for these………………… isn’t this the most adorable jewellery? I cant get over how cute they are. These are fox earing studs which came in lots of different colours but i chose this one. I really cant wait to wear these! ekk lol

So all items I bought looked exactly as on the website which am pleased about and I think I will be buying more jewellery from this website because they really do have some unique jewellery items.

ACCESSORIES – CHOKER NECKLACES

I am not a massive fan of necklaces and I really don’t wear them. Being that I get heat rash in summer I don’t wear them as they irritate my neck and in winter they are cold lol (I know am weird). But I have found a necklace that I absolutely LOVE! and its comfortable on my skin  what ever season. So Chokers are my best friends right now (though my partner don’t like their name).

I have always thought how do they breath? ain’t it too tight?( I know stupid) but since it is the IT jewellery accessory I thought let me give it a try and boy I have not stopped buying them lol. They come in different colours as well as sizes and style which give you versatility. I love them.

I GRADUATED!!!!!!!

Hey loves hope you are all well. So last week Tuesday 11th I graduated from university with Honours!!!! like what???!!!, I never thought I would get there or that I could do it. I had to redo 3 assignments!! in about a month!. So when I found out I had to redo 3 assignments which included my dissertation, I honestly could not take it anymore, my energy levels were so low as well as my motivation levels. I cried then I got angry not at me but at the tutors because they checked the assignment prier to hand in date and they gave them the go ahead not to fail I was just gobsmacked. I gave and said I don’t care anymore I do not want to graduate…….. the usual reactions when you have given all you can and its still not good enough.

But after talking to my family and friends and sleeping on it I decided to push myself and get my degree because if I didn’t I would have wasted 3 years for what? and I had to show my babies that no matter the obstacles you can still do it. So I put my head down and got them done and handed in before my family holiday to Uganda. When we came back it was back to reality to find out the results of my resits. I passed all of them being that they are resits they are capped at 40%  but with my dissertation they gave me 42%! I could not believe it, after ll the changes they told me to make (which I made for the resit) they still gave me 42% which left me so scared and stressed because it had to go to moderation for the final marks. So I prayed and left it in Gods hands.

Thankfully they did not put my marks down ( if they did I would have failed again and had to redo a whole year!!) and I graduated with a third Honours!!!!

 

I am still processing it how I done it and got through it. Being a mother it was really difficult finding time to study and do the assignments but I was able to organise myself and with the help of my hubby we got there. Its been  crazy and manic but I am glad I did it and on the way I made some lovely friends who together helped each other through it all.

Moral of the story, if you work hard enough for something,you will almost certainly get there.
