How charming | Pandora charm birthday collection

I just turned another year older and my family made a great start to my Pandora charm collection. You may remember from this post that I bought the bracelet as a treat to myself during the summer and up until now I had been wearing it plainly with no charms. 

My boyfriend got me the October signature heart birthstone charm which is an open carved heart shaped charm with the birthstone in the center of each side. It is double sided so it looks the same even if it swings round. He also got the curious cat charm which is a single sided very cute little cat face to represent our lovely cat Alfie.

My brother got me the sister's love charm which is a heart shape with 'sister' engraved and a pink cubic zirconia. It is double sided, so it has the engraving an jewel on both sides.

From my parents I got the vintage E charm which is again double sided, an open carved sphere and the letter E carved with 3 small clear cubic zirconia's in the letter.

I'm so happy with my little collection of charms that are all special in their own way. 

At some point it would be good to get a rose gold one to match with the clasp and put in the middle of my other charms. But for now, I am loving the look of this.

Which charms are your favourite?

Autumn nails

I've neglected my nails since being back at work. Teacher's will know how it is; you get caught up in the craziness of the first term and never have much of a chance to take your foot off the throttle.

But now I'm in the routine and I'm seeing lots of beautiful autumnal colours, it is time to get back to it.

I've found a range of nail shades that I think will be perfect for Autumn.

I'm going to start off by buying the Kiko one - I fell a little bit in love with that when I discovered the picture on Pinterest.
