Gifting with Gemporia

Way back in December, the kind folks at Gemporia got in touch and asked if I would like to take part in a Secret Santa. Of course I said yes!

From the wide selection of jewellery on the Gemporia website, I was given my budget and the recipient of my gift. Who wouldn’t love doing a little bit of extra shopping eh?

It’s love… and love is Marc Jacobs shaped

It’s love… and love is Marc Jacobs shaped

Hello Lovelies, 

I’m generally not one for designer jewellery as I so sporadically wear it, I see it as an required waste of money but every so often, something will pop up and call my name and I can’t resist buying it. Usually Vivienne Westwood necklaces or my last splurge was indeed my Marc Jacobs earrings I blogged about HERE.

While trawling the interwebs to find myself something to mark my new job, I deviated from my usual searches of handbag sections and in to accessories and there I fell in love!

And if it wasn’t gorgeous enough, what’s the model name I hear you ask? It’s Katie, Marc Jacobs has actually called a bracelet Katie! It would be rude not to buy it, right? Much like I got suckered in to buying an unflattering Illamasqua blush just because that too was called Katie! It’s a habit!

I’m torn though ladies! This beautiful bracelet comes in either a hot pink & gold colour way or an all rose gold colour way. I am absolutely torn!

Problem is, I know I probably won’t wear either one enough to warrant the splurge but it is gorgeous, it’s named after me and I deserve a treat!
