My Jewellery Collection

I'm not a jewellery type of girl, but I do try and wear some whenever I can. At the moment I have a few necklaces and bracelets which I thought I would share with you.

This bracelet is one my parents brought home for me from France. I think it would be a really cute anklet too. It has lots of blue beads and a cord to tie it.

This is my Chamilia bracelet, which I did a whole post on here.

These are my shorter necklaces. I love my birdcage necklace (far right), but I always struggle to find something to match it. It may be featured in a post soon so keep an eye out for that.

My big gold wire necklace is from New Look. I'm still unsure if I like it or not, I don't think I'm daring enough to wear statement necklaces. What do you think of it?

I then have my smaller gold wire necklace from H&M. I used to wear this constantly but it started rubbing my neck, which is understandable when it was around £2.

These are my two long necklaces. My gold feather necklace is from Accessorize and was around £8. This was my first one I bought and I have got quite a bit of use out of it. It's bendable too which I like.

The second feather necklace was from my sister for Christmas. It was from Pilgrim and a little bit more pricey than the other feather necklace. I love this one a lot too.

My chocker is one a made myself with some black cord and a moon charm. If you're interested in me sending you one, just let me know. It was so easy and I love wearing it.

My gold chain bracelet is from accessorize. I like it because it is very simple and plain.

My turquoise bracelet was a birthday present from my brother. It's a sort of interconnected bangle with pretty flowers hanging off it. 

I store all my jewellery on an old heater temperature changer I think. It's just very conveniant as it's right by my door.

Lastly, I'm selling this necklace on Depop, as I think it got sent to me by accident. If you're interested in it, my Depop username is @emsiemily

A bit of a different post from my today, what do you think? Should I do more of these type of posts?

Flashback Friday - Beautiful French Harbour

Today is the first of my Flashback Friday posts. In this series, I hope to look back on photos and memories. Today I'm flashbacking to my holiday in October to France with my family. We were staying very close to this beautiful harbour.

This is one of my favourite photos. There was this harbour surrounded by pretty French shops and cafés.

I took a quick picture of these beautiful flowers out there. I am a big fan of pictures of close up flowers, I just find that they always turn out to be the best ones.

As well as a harbour by the cafés, there was a harbour by a footpath full of pretty boats and reflections. The weather was amazing compared to British October, and the skys were always blue.

I hope you liked this quick little post, please tell me if I should carry on with this series, as I hope to add more lifestyle and photography to my blog. Best wishes,

OOTD - A Romper

I bought my first romper (or playsuit, whatever you like to call it) and I am in love. I especially love this one as its kind of burgundy. If you've been reading my posts for a while, you will know that I love burgundy, a lot. 

I feel like rompers can be worn all year round. As today was a little chilly, even though it's supposed to be summer, I paired it with tights and some boots. But in proper summer (if it ever comes) I will be pairing my romper with some brown sandals and sunglasses.
It gives the gracefulness of a dress, but you can do the activities of a pair of jeans (almost, you've got to be careful). Basically, what I'm trying to say is that you can jump around in this without showing off your underwear which is super great.

Where everything is from-
Romper - H&M
Boots - Clarks
Tights - New Look

I hope you liked this quick little post, and I will be with you tomorrow! xx

Summer Beauty Essentials

Summer is here (I think, here in the UK it will probably be winter tomorrow, so I better not get my hope up) and I have a few beauty products which I will be using a lot of this summer. So here they are, with a little review for each one.

Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in I'm Pure for Sure
This product is one I have been raving about for quite a while as I have used almost all of it up throughout winter and spring. I think this will be perfect for summer (once I order another) as it's a light foundation. Summer is a time for light make-up, lets not get too cakey. This foundation is also a little buildable, so if you're not too keen on light make-up (as I feel quite a lot of the time) then you can build up the coverage with this one. Yes, the product is great but can we just appreciate the packaging for a minute, how cute is it?!

Rimmel Stay Matte in Transparent 001
Lets face it, summer means sweat, and when my face gets a little shiny this is a must have. I think its one of the cheapest powders in the drugstore and I can't find anything that beats it. Just chuck it into your bag (but be careful, the packaging isn't best) and bring it around with you this summer for whenever you need a little matte-ifying.

Sleek Bronze Block in Light
I may of bought this in a moment when I could pull off a bit of a bronze on my ghostly white face but it has turned out to be rather amazing. Its just a block of three different matte shades of bronze and a shimmery blush. Whenever I feel like adding a little bit of colour to my face, this comes out of my make-up bag. I kind of think of it as a beginners bronzer. This is perfect for summer, as if you suffer from the same as me, you don't tan, only grow freckles (its a pain, and it also means there's no end to my pale little potato face). This little bronze block can make people think you're capable of tanning. And yet again, I am a big fan of its packaging. Sometimes I just use it as a portable mirror as its small and the product hardly makes the mirror dirty, unlike my eyeshadow palettes.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 05
I remember raving about this in the early days of my blog and I recently retrieved it and I'veremembered how much I've missed it. It's a sort of my lips but better shade. The colour reminds me of summer flowers so it's a perfect pick for me when it comes to summer. Also, it's really affordable too which is always a plus.

I really hope you lot enjoyed this post. I actually went outside (shocker) to take the pictures, do you think it's an improvement? I also added my shades for whoever is interested. Remember to not hesitate to comment or get in contact with me, I love speaking to you guys.

Links I Love #2

The second of the series is here, and its a list of links I have been loving at the moment, in the hope to help you discover some great websites etc. - Before exploring this website, it did seem to be a bit of a middle-aged woman type of website but once I joined, lets just say it is wonderful. Its basically a load of pictures, gifs and websites in one place. It does need a little use to get used to it but I love it a lot. On the sidebar you will see the pinterest button to take you to my pinterest. - I have become a bit of a Snapchat addict recently, its the main way I talk to my friends so I love using it. My main one is emilymorgan32 if you'd like to add me, but I might make a special one just for my blog and blogger friends -  what do you think? - neonflames - Basically a website to make your own galaxy. Its great and actually really relaxing. - I know Emma gets a lot of hate but I have really enjoyed her videos recently. Especially "How to Get Big on Youtube", go give it a watch (she is also really close to 1 million). - Recently I have been listening to Radio 1 and I love it a lot. Especially Nick Grimshaw. - I mentioned Hannah Maggs' Youtube channel in my last Links I Love post, and her husband has created a website/app called WantFeed. If you don't already know what it is, its basically a website where you put everything you want and around your birthday or Christmas, basically just show it to you partner/parents/friends in the hope they can see what you want.

I hope you liked my little post, I'm enjoying writing this little series and I hope you're enjoying reading it too. I plan on posting from this Monday until Friday daily or maybe twice a day to get my back into the swing of things on this blog. 

What's your favourite link at the moment? I love hearing from you, so don't hesitate to comment or email etc.

Hello Again

Long time no see.. For the past month I think, my laptop has been getting fixed and at last, I have it back. I have missed blogging so much, much more than I expected. So today I thought I would do a little catch up chat and tell you whats in store on here.

I am also sat my first GCSE exam today, so whilst my laptop was getting fixed I had a lot of revision done. I feel like its a sort of love/hate thing with me and my revision. I sometimes love how organised it is and learning, but I also hate it when I'm not at all motivated.

So, now that I'm back here are some stuff that I have planned-
-I hope to do all the Secret Blogger Project posts that I have missed
-I need to bring some beauty back here, so I may have some reviews planned..
-I really enjoyed some of the Iceland posts that I put up, and you lot seemed to like it too, so I hope to do some of that type of posts too

Anyway, until next time (which hopefully won't be too long),
