I’ve never been a shrinking violet. If I feel strongly about something, you’ll know it. I’m not scared of being noticed or to look different. All of which makes Fuck the Tories one my favourite brands.
If you haven’t checked them out yet, hop to it. Not only do they make fabulous radical accessories, they also support great causes. It feels like we are living in some kind of alternate political reality at the moment. I rush from disbelief, to rage, to despair on a daily basis. The ascendence of Boris to PM has only made matters worse. So, the new range of Fuck Boris necklaces are a very glittery outlet for my frustrations.
I know wearing a necklace won’t change anything by itself. It does make me feel a little better to express my disgust and connect with like minded people. I will continue to do everything else in my power to affect change. I hope you will too. Protest, contact your MP, sign the petitions, vote! In the mean time you can enjoy the satisfaction of supporting an amazing small business & voicing your opinionated loud and clear.
I have been home all day doing housework, budgets & baking some cakes, which means I have no exciting outfit to photograph. Instead I am featuring some accessories. I love costume jewellery, but am terrible for wearing something one & the allowing it to languish in my jewellery box for eternity. As part of my mammoth organising spree I tackled said jewellery boxes. I have no pledged to make better use of all the cool pieces I have collected over the years.
I knew I had to have this peely wally necklace the minute I saw it. I was smitten by the Scottish colloquialism & couldn’t escape the fact that it perfectly described me. It’s oft complimented & is an admirable addition to a little black dress.
My serenity prayer bracelet was a gift from my darling friend, Jenna. As I have said previously, I do not practise in religion, but do believe in a god of some kind. Although this is a Christian prayer, I can relate it. I know it has also become associated with AA, but I think it speaks to anyone who is experiencing difficulties. Along with the sentimental value I find this bracelet beautiful. The design is so simple that I can easily be worn every day.
Today’s final pretty thing was a ridiculous bargain. I found it in of all places, Aldi. I went to Aldi for lemons & asparagus. I came home with this beautiful spider. I don’t normally buy my jewellery in budget super markets but, hey, I’m not going to be snobby about it. This big, sparkly spider brooch is amazing. I plan to give him his first outing at a friend’s wedding next week. He can’t wait.
