I am the girl that never wears jewellery (a good blog name...), despite having my ears pierced when I was eight years old I have worn earrings a total of twice in my life and that includes the mandatory six weeks of studs to ensure your ear stays pierced. It's actually incredible that my holes are still there. There are several reasons for why I hate wearing jewellery: they get tangled, tarnished, destroyed, lost, broken and sometimes they even hurt. I have nowhere to store them and most of the time the pieces feel too heavy or ostentatious. For me, comfort is paramount. If I don't feel comfortable, I don't look comfortable. Therefore, earrings are off the menu entirely for me. It takes too long and requires a hefty amount of stabbing, twisting and screaming before it actually is in my ear. The only jewellery I wear is my Kara and that's just a part of me now. I don't even feel it.
When Happiness Boutique emailed me and directed me to their website I was reluctant. I don't wear jewellery, I have never in my life even discussed jewellery on this blog and for good reason. I don't wear it. I was positive that they had got the wrong person, but the small, evil part of me thought hey I can get a cool present for my sister and earn brownie points for the next time I need a favour. So I did a little browsing on my lunch break and was pleasantly surprised, because although I am not a lover of jewellery I know many girls are and, their website is chock full of a gorgeous range of dainty and delicate to bold and eye-catching pieces. Before surfing their site I had never heard of an ear jacket, which has to be the most adorable name in the world, or ear crawlers (which sounds decidedly less cute and more like there is a beetle in your ear). Needless to say I soon decided my sister could get her own jewellery, these were going to be all mine. Sorry not sorry. My favourite thing about their site is that it is ridiculously easy to navigate and the pieces are categorised not only by their product type (i.e. necklace, earring, ear jacket) but also by their style. So you can shop according to your preference. I clicked on ear jackets and climbers because I had no idea what they were and this is how I find myself in the possession of these two lovely items below.
I thought this was an ear cuff at first but it is actually called The Petal Starlight Ear Crawler With Clip on Cuff (£20). It is gold plated and so pretty, you can see my sister kindly modelling it for me below. This is a really gorgeous black and gold ear crawler with an intricate flower design. It is incredibly easy to put on even for a jewellery novice like myself. You simply place it in your left pierced ear like a traditional earring and hook the the clasp around the ear to secure it in place so it curves with your ear shape. It looks so beautiful and unique, is gold plated and comes with a cute little ear cuff you can put on the opposing ear if its feeling a little bare. I have gotten so many compliments on this and it really does add the finishing touch to a lot of outfits.
The next item is this pretty Glitter and Glitz Ear Cuff (£9.30). My favourite thing about this piece is that it can be worn in multiple ways. Below in the picture you can see my sister wearing one on one ear and the other is on her opposite ear, just like a pair of earrings. But you can also wear both on the same ear like a cuff which I only realised after looking on their website. This is because it is applied via a clip which makes it the easiest item to put on. It is secure, stays all day, doesn't budge and looks lovely no matter which way you wear it. On more casual days, I like to wear one on each ear (as pictured below) and if I am at a wedding or a birthday party I like to wear it on one ear as a cuff. Plus it is so affordable. I love these jewellery pieces because I feel like they are a twist on classic pieces which makes them unique and cool, easy and fun to wear but most of all versatile.
Happiness Boutique are a brilliant jewellery company, not only do they sell original, one of a kind items but they offer a customer rewards programs for their customers and send cute little notes of happiness in their prettily packaged parcels. I keep the box they so generously sent these items in and use them to store all my earrings in one place. Never lose a backing again. They have a sale on right now if you want to check them out, their jewellery is of good quality and reasonably priced which is a rarity in this day and age. They even leave a little card in with advice on how to store and look after your jewellery to ensure it lives a healthy lifespan. I am really grateful and happy to have been introduced to them and thank them for being sweet enough to send me some products free of charge in exchange for an honest post. So many brands and companies make countless demands when they want to work with bloggers and I am not here for that. I think this is definitely a case where I think their merchandise more than speaks for itself. I hope you have a look at their website just to see what they offer. You are in no way obliged to buy anything and I don't make any commission nor have I used affiliate links in this post. This is my honest opinion. Thank you for reading and of course leave me a comment with what jewellery you typically wear, if any. Please follow me on Bloglovin' if you aren't already. Hope you are all enjoying the weekend, speak to you soon. Take care.
