Top 3 Gift Ideas for Valentines Day

With Valentine's Day almost upon us I took it upon myself to think up a quick list of Valentine's Day gift ideas for all of you men out there who might be struggling to come up with something simple but sweet. Valentine's Day isn't about spending heaps of money, at least in my book, but a thoughtful gift is always much appreciated by the ladies!

1. Something sweet 

Not all goes want flowers and chocolates! Go for something cute and sweet like a teddy bear with a a cute phrase attached to it. This is not only a thoughtful gift but something she can look at when she is thinking of you.
This white bear is just the bees-knees!

2. Something beautiful

For the ladies who love the more traditional gifts, grab her some beautiful long-stemmed roses! You will need to get in quick for these as they sell out quickly, especially online!
Pink roses are the best!
3. Something to keep

Of course not all ladies want real flowers - some would prefer something decorative that they can keep forever. Something elegant in a big pot is a must have. I think this dainty orchid would be simply stunning in most homes.


So gents, best be quick to get in and find something lovely for your significant other before time runs out! Hope this post helped you find something nice!


New Year - New Body Jewellery

So it’s a New Year and this means a fresh new start and some fun new items.

On my list of things that need refreshing is my body jewellery. I am sort of getting sick of my plain and boring lime green stone belly bar and my boring pink metal rook jewellery. It’s time for something fresh, new and exciting.

For the belly bar:
This year I am really interested in trying a reverse belly bar. It’s something that is relatively new on the body Jewellery scene and looks really cool.

I am thinking of something fun like this reverse cherry dangle belly bar. It is super cute, quirky and bit fun. 

For something a bit fancier I might choose this rose non-dangle belly bar. Super simple, sophisticated and less likely to snag on clothing! Definitely a must-buy!

For the rook:
My rook is over 12 months old now so it is officially healed. I was lucky enough to never really have any issues with it which is cool. Anyway so right now I feel like it needs something pretty to celebrate its success at healing.

I have considered a captive bead ring for my rook as I have seen this on other people and it looks nice. For that I might consider this cute dangle cbr or maybe something a bit more fun like this triangle shaped cbr.

Other ideas for the rook would be to splash out on a white gold curved barbell. I’ve actually always wanted something more expensive and nice for the rook as it is my favourite piercing. Something like this curved barbell might be nice!

Hope everyone is having a great New Year so far!
