today i bought...

I used to wear a lot of jewellery; I loved a chunky necklace, a standout earring for a night out and even a novelty animal-shaped ring or two. But in the last year or two I've found my need for it diminishing, and now have boxes of it that is rarely ever used. It's not that I don't love jewellery anymore; I'm just a lot more selective about it. Instead of piling on an assortment of necklaces and bracelets I wear my simple Dogeared Karma necklace everyday and usually a gold bracelet or watch to go with it. Recently, though, I've found myself quite wanting a ring to add to my simple daily selection, and the other day I found just the ticket when browsing Jordan Askill's capsule collection for Topshop. Most of the panther-themed pieces are awesome but a little on the statement (and expensive) side for me, but this beautiful little rose gold ring is pretty much perfection in my eyes. Utterly simple but still very eye-catching, it's a beautifully subtle rose colour and engraved on the inside with the designer's name. It's also plated with rose gold, which should mean that it will stand the test of time. Unfortunately it's now out of stock, but if you click the link above and bookmark it, keep checking back every day because sometimes if only one or two pieces are returned, Topshop won't list the item again but the restocked items will appear on that page. (You can also check out the similar silver ring here). As for the lovely pinky lilac lipstick, it was a free gift from Topshop for having 3 million Facebook fans. I think the offer still stands so check out Topshop's Facebook to get the code and snap up this freebie for yourself.
