The Perfect One Rose Gold Ring by Astrid & Miyu from Jewel Street

A few weeks back, I was contacted by Jewel Street to pick a piece of jewellery to feature on my blog. I immediately said yes as I love jewellery and couldn’t let the opportunity slip away! If you haven’t heard of Jewel Street before, it’s an online shopping destination for jewellery with 300 boutiques to shop from with a huge price range.

The Packaging 

The packaging is a simple black box with the Astrid & Miyu logo engraved. I would have preferred a brighter box or logo to make it more appealing and inviting.

C/O The Perfect One Ring by Astrid and Miyu, £39

I picked The Perfect One ring in rose gold and at first glance, it’s dainty, feminine and I love the diamante accents. I don’t own any rose gold jewellery so this will be my first piece. The ring sits on my finger as a midi and also comes in sliver, gold and gunmetal. To the sell the ring more, it would be great as a set featuring the four colours together and can be stacked up on your finger. 

Overall, I am happy with the ring all the same and looking to buy more rose gold jewellery in the future.

White Wash

One evergreen fashion staple for summer are whites. It’s fresh, clean, crisp and cooling. Can be complimented with bold colours or toughened up with utility separates. The only downside is making sure that you don’t spill anything on you especially foods like spaghetti or red wine. Nevertheless, it shouldn’t stop you from getting these 8 beauties in my Shopping Trolley this week. I’m in love with the bell sleeved dress from Topshop as it can get away with being a wedding dress. The white nail polish is perfect to keep those nails fresh for summer.

Summer in the City with Lyst

I love a good wish list as gives me an opportunity to scroll through endless pages of beautiful clothing. I recently partnered with Lyst.co.uk to create a summer in the city wish list. If you haven’t heard of Lyst before it’s a fully interactive shopping destination with thousands brands including high street favourites Topshop and River Island under one roof to create an ultimate, personal shopping experience. You can also hear about new store arrivals and when your favourite item goes on sale.

At first glance, the site has a clean, minimalistic style and very easy to navigate. To begin creating my Lyst, I signed up (a very quick process) and answered a series of questions to decide which brands I love and which I don’t. This enables you to only follow brands that you love. This info is then used to create a page called New for You where you can find a host of new products based around the brands you’ve followed. There are two ways for searching for products. The first one is using the trusty search bar and you type exactly what you’re looking for or if you need some inspiration you can click on the Women, Men, Designers and Sales tab to narrow your search. You can even pick the colour you’re after and the price range. If you’re still feeling lost, be sure to check out the Be Inspired section to browse and shop Lysts created by the designers, stores and fashion influencers.

My inspiration behind my summer in the city wish list came from my holiday in Italy last year where I walked on cobbled streets, eating authentic Italian pizza and soaking up the culture. I centred my wish list around the gorgeous Valentino studded bag as the colour is perfect for brightening up your summer outfit and can carry just the essentials.

Summer in the City Wish List

 After selecting my top picks for my wish list, I did a spot of reading on the site’s blog The LongLyst where you can browse through interesting posts about designers, trends and style.
