Everyone who knows me is aware of my obsession with rose gold and that obsession grew out of scrolling through posts on Instagram where rose gold seemed to be the flavour of the month. From watches to mobile phones delicate rose gold was flooding my feed and I was living for it. There is something so classically elegant and timeless about rose gold that you can’t help but fall in love every time you see it. At least that was my reasoning and to date I have rose gold rings, necklaces, bangles, shoes and clothes but there is always room in my wardrobe for more rose gold. It is like the saying goes ‘you can never have too much rose gold’! In fact the amount of times I mention rose gold in this one paragraph should solidify how much I adore rose gold and it is my favourite metal of all time. I have never been a huge jewellery fan apart from statement necklaces but bangles and earrings were out of the question so when I saw rose gold shoes, bags and co-ord’s I was immediately changed. Then I saw rose-gold phones and thought to myself I need that rose gold in my life!
Earrings Inspired by 90’s minimalism these brushed rose gold triangular earrings are simple but will take any look from zero to hero in a matter of seconds. Pair the rose gold earrings with a dainty rose gold chain layered over a silver 90’s pendant for a mixed metal approach to featuring rose gold. Alternatively use the rose gold earrings as a base and work the rest of your look around it by mixing blush accents with rose gold tones. Buy HERE
Necklaces Featuring semi-precious stones the white topaz rose gold jewellery gift contains a pendant and matching earrings for the price of one item. What’s more the rose gold curated by Embers is fashioned in textured rose gold to give it a more raw but still minimalist finish making it a unique jewellery set to own. The fusion of raw metal and subtle minimalist influences drawn from 90’s culture the jewellery set is the perfect asset to a hard-core minimalists collection. I am not a minimalist by any means when it comes to fashion but I love minimalist jewellery pieces like the set below [Bottom Right]Buy HERE
Featured top right are a set of personalized bar necklaces that are available in gold, rose gold and silver. Created in plated rose gold, the 14 carat bar necklace is simple, timeless and personalized to your personalized taste. If I were to engrave the bar necklace I would write one word ‘hope’ because 2016 is about instilling positivity back into my life. Before my depression I was the happiest person you could meet but when depression takes over it is so hard to stay positive, it is like a terminal black cloud that you can’t quite shake off. Giving myself hope will take back that negative energy and remind me of everything I have been through to get to where I am today.Buy HERE
This might come as a surprise to those who know me and know how anti-Iphone I was having never owned an I-phone in my life. I have always been an android lover and had misconceptions about I-Phones that were unfounded. At that point in my life androids were more self-sufficient and suited my needs better than it does at present. As the times change so does the evolution of mobile phones and the I-Phone six has changed all my pre-conceptions. My current phone is a HTC M8 which was chosen for its large screen, excellent video and sound quality which at the time was more significant than having a good camera. At the moment my camera only has 5MP and I am at that point where having a good camera will save me from taking my Nikon DSLR 1300 everywhere ( especially since I am trying to figure out aperture still).
The I-phone Six is both aesthetically pleasing and technologically superior. Featuring a 4.7 inch display the I-phone Six S is smaller than the HTC but has a 12 MP back camera and 5MP front camera which makes it good enough to take selfies but also capture landscapes, people and is higher in quality than a standard android camera. The I-Phone Six S is on the pricey side but the benefits outweigh the cons. Even better the I-Phone Six S comes in the option of rose gold which evidently I adore as it is a timeless metal finish that is both elegant and incredibly modern.With that being said you can never have too much rose-gold and the Evo E-Lite rose gold Iphone Six/ Six S case is the most gorgeous phone case I have seen in existence.
Forget the patterns, prints and emoticons ( as much as I love them) and settle for a phone case that is minimalist and classically elegant. The Evo E-Lite rose gold case is slim, lightweight and perfectly matched to the I-Phone’s iconic aluminium backing which delivers first class protection, especially since I-Phones are notoriously easy to break. But that is what changed my mind, knowing that there is a case that can protect the I-Phone from breaking and looking gorgeous to boot certainly sweetens the offering. Even better it delivers Flex-shock which offers protection from drops of 2m / 6.6ft. Please note the Evo E-Lite is available to pre-order now but will not be dispatched until the 25th March.Available to pre-order now
Plated rose gold letters swing from clean white hooks styled in an italicized curly old-fashioned font that is made modern by being brushed in rose gold. Cheap, cheerful and the perfect accompaniment to any room the italicized letters can be personalized to spell out any word (or sentence) that you like. For me I would spell out Faded Spring and have it as a reminder of how much my blog means to me. It is more than just a brand but a way of life. Buy Here The second homeware choice is a personalized rose gold teaspoon gift set which allows you to write up to 30 characters on the spoon face and up to 12 on the spoon handle. What is more the hand stamped cutlery comes boxed in a Cutlery Commission gift box and features a hand filled organza bag containing organic English rose bud tea. As someone who is a huge fan of herbal tea this extra detail is part of the sets charm. Buy Here
I only own one pair of rose gold heels and that is textured rose gold lace up sandals so these two metallic beauties below look both comfortable and stunning to match. The first rose gold flat choice is top right and is tailored with a pointed toe and faux croc skin effect, glossed over by a mirrored effect to give the flats a high sheen. Pair with a blush pussybow blouse, ceramic pink pencil skirt and a rose gold jacket and accessories to tie into the rose gold shoes.Buy HEREThe second lace-up rose gold pair reminds me of when I used to dance. I went to Stagecoach and did singing, acting and dancing and alongside the medals and certificates I was given a pair of bronze tap shoes for three years at stage school, silver for 4 and gold for 5 years ( I was there 7 years) but never received a rose gold pair. In a way the rose gold lace-ups allow me to live my dance fantasy again because it has been a long time since I have danced in a professional capacity. Buy HERE
