Something Special for Someone Special

Saturday, 31 January 2015

Can you believe that Valentine's day is almost here!? One minute it's Christmas, New Year...you blink and then before you know it, it's the middle of February! 

Even though I'm without a significant other *sob*, I still think Valentine's day is a time to share with your loved ones, whether that's romantically or not, and spoil them with chocolate, cards and flowers. Or how about with pearls?! They're a timeless classic that give any outfit that touch of elegance and will be a gift your person can keep forever.


I was delighted to receive these gorgeous gorgeous earrings* from absolute pearls. They arrived beautifully wrapped in white paper and a black ribbon..in fact it was so nicely wrapped that I was a bad blogger and didn't take a photo as excitement took over and I'd torn into it..sorry! But trust me that it was pretty :)


The red box is a lovely touch!


I've never owned real pearls before, I usually wear fake stud ones, but I can really tell the difference with these beauties! You can read about how to tell if your pearls are real right here!

Isn't it crazy that they come out of Oysters!! 


I can't decide if they look like little cherries or if it's a bow on the top, but they are very girly and sparkly! 

How will you be celebrating Valentine's Day? 


And.... if you absolutely hate the day.....fear not. February 17th is PANCAKE DAY!!!

  3. I love the look of these. I'm yet to own real pearls to and always wearing the fake studs. I may just have to ask the other half for these for valentines day. Although... An engagement ring would be nicer!!

  9. As someone who has been in a relationship for 5+ years I actually hate Valentines day. I think everyday should be a day to celebrate being together. :) Pancake day is definitely more my thing!! :P

    These earrings are very cute. Unfortunately I don't have pierced ears.
