A while ago i saw an instagram post from agirlastyle.com of her new Tatty Devine Charm necklace and instantly fell in love and have been trawling the web waiting for news of where i could buy one from as they were not showing on the actual Tatty Devine website. Finally an event appeared on the brand's social media network promoting a pop up shop in Birmingham Selfridges, where i could create my own - i had to schedule a visit, even booked a day off work that's how excited i was to design my own!

My obsession with Tatty devine started when I was still at Uni - I was lucky enough to do a month of work experience in the Brick lane workshop/store as it was back then. That month was one of the most expensive of my life as constantly being surrounded by jewellery was too much! Ever since then I am so excited each season to see what new pieces the team have come up with and just how unusual they will go. I have pieces varying from necklaces of fawn's and unicorns to music note earrings, from tape measure brooches to my gorgeous original name necklace - so many Tatty pieces make up a large proportion of my jewellery box - a taster below.


I was wandering around Selfridges for a while before i finally found the pop up shop. It then took me 10 mins to decide on which charms i  wanted on my necklace - too many cute options (plus had the lovely sales lady laughing at me as my sister and her fiance were talking wedding details at me as i was off in my own little world debating my options).

So in the end i went for a silver chain necklace with the following charms:
Shoe - to represent that I am an assistant buyer for footwear and my obsession with shoes. This had to be red glitter in honor of Dorothy's Ruby Slippers in the Wizard of Oz.
Glasses - as I am a glasses wearer and proud of it and glitter because i love a bit of sparkle.
Heart - because it is my favourite symbol, i am always doodling hearts and of course it just has to be pink as that is my favourite colour.


With 11 charms, in 12 colours to choose from i could have been there all day deciding. Defiantly something for everyone - the only charm i had hoped would be there were the lips i saw on the original instagram post but i love the charms i chose.



PRICES 

♥ Bracelets - 5 charms £30, 10 charms £40 and 15 charms £50.
♥ Necklace - 1 charm £18, 3 charms £25 and 5 charms £35.

As the pop up shop is in Birmingham until Christmas Eve i may have to pay another visit and pick up a match charm bracelet! 

Have you been and created your own Tatty Devine charm jewellery? If so please send me some pics, would love to see what combinations others have come up with.

The latest accessory in my life - the stylish Saffiano Filofax in Bright Purple.
Managed to get at a bargain price £30 from Staples, as Filofax organisers can be expensive dependent on the size, collection and what accessories/sections you need.  I went shopping with the intention of buying and A5 sized organiser but in the flesh it is just too big to lug around everyday in my handbag so i went for the next size down, the Personal. I also really wanted the New Original Filofax in Fluro pink but at £60 it is a little too expensive for me especially as the Saffiano has more logical sections for my needs and is the same size at half the price.

I am an organisational freak with a strange love of stationary, and i can't fully commit to organising my life solely on my smartphone, i like to organise in the traditional way and write everything down so Filofax is great. I also wanted something a little more grown up than a standard diary and this fitted the bill especially in this beautiful leather and bold colour. I also like to customise my diaries but at the same time keep it simple, have seen many YouTube videos showing how others like to organise theirs, where too many stickers and colours are used, it ends up looking like a child's sticker book. I do have a few stickers but they are use sparingly and are symbols rather than bright characters. To personalise my Filofax i have used my favourite Pinterest images, to jazz up the dividers that came with it.

My current sections include Personal, Diary, Blog Plan, Blog Ideas, Websites and To do lists but the nice thing with Filofax is that i can add more as and when i need them.



Only had this for a week now, and currently only have 2014 diary, but once i hit the new year this diary will hopefully be everything i wanted it to be, and make my life uber organised!

Which do you prefer - the old fashion writing everything down way or the modern everything stored on your smartphone way? Let me know how you like to keep organised.
