BIRTHDAY HAUL 1 - AWESOME ACCESSORIES!

As you probably already know, it was my birthday last week, so the spending ban has ended an I have been treating myself to a few little bits and bobs (as well as being totally spoiled by others too). So the first in my birthday haul posts is the accessories I have purchased - it is amazing how some well chosen jewellery, or colour pop of nail varnish, can really change an outfit, so I stocked up. Expect to see them popping up in outfit posts really soon!

My boyfriend was kind enough to buy me the silver sunnies (if there is no sun I will wear those bad boys in the rain!) and the pink studded bracelet, which was really kind of him - it is the little gestures that mean the most I find.

Multi-layer Spike Bracelet, Gold by Giles Nail Varnish, Spiked Ear Cuff and Cross Earrings - All New Look.
Pink Spiked Bracelet and Silver Framed Sunglasses - H&M.

Silver Collar Necklace and Glitter Polish, H&M
No.7 Nail Polishes, Boots
 
 I am loving accessories at the minute, especially anything studded or spiked - it's my inner punk coming out! I even bought the ripped jeans from New Look I was lusting after last week.

So what have you guys been treating yourself too recently? Because doesn't everyone deserve a treat every now and then, don't they?

  17. Always loving jewellery and nail polishes - you got my two favourite things to buy right there! Wearing some Barry M Navy at the moment - it's seriously gorgeous and has a nice rock chick edge.
