PERSONALISED JEWELLERY WITH TRESOR PARIS

PERSONALISED JEWELLERY WITH TRESOR PARIS PERSONALISED JEWELLERY WITH TRESOR PARIS 1

The festive season is arriving, not to mention my birthday next month (!!) and gift ideas are more than welcome. It’s very easy to please me, you can buy me clothes, makeup or jewellery because we can never have enough of those.

I have a special thing for delicate and classic jewels, hence my pearl earrings and rings that I rarely take off. I’m also always wearing a fine necklace with some detail which I think compliments many tops I wear.

What you can’t always get is something special like a personalised jewellery. Charm bracelets and bangles came to change this concept and you can create a variety of pieces that match your taste and are meaningful to you. But what I am really in love with is a floating locket necklace by Tresor Paris which you can personalise with small charms and create something unique for you.

Heart, diamond or round shape (my choice), the necklaces have a locket that comes with 18 crystals – you can use them if you want to, and I’m sure you will! – and you can also choose to add any other charm of your preference. Any idea of what I went for?? My children’s initials of course! The letters A and L.

Each side of the Round 20mm (they have it in 25mm as well) Essence Floating Locket is different. One side has paved crystals and the other has “Tresor Paris” written on it, which is the side I prefer to wear. Between gold, silver and rose gold, I went for the last one as it is more of a democratic colour (thinking of my wardrobe and accessories).

I’m already getting a lot of compliments on how beautiful my necklace is! The kids felt really special with the fact that I’m carrying their initials with me, but I can’t say the same about the hubby. Should I order a letter B maybe!?

Thank you Tresor Paris, for collaborating with me on this post. This necklace is part of their new Elixir Collection.

WISHLIST: NARS SOFT MATTE CONCEALER, ZOEVA PALETTE & MORE

WISHLIST: NARS SOFT MATTE CONCEALER, ZOEVA PALETTE & MORE

Let’s talk about what’s currently on my wishlist, including four makeup products, one skincare and one beauty device!

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer: The newly launched Nars matte concealer seems already to be a hit, as it has a creamy matte texture that promises full coverage with a natural finish. I’m also excited to try one of their new 6 shades which are also available for the Radiant Creamy Concealer.

RejuvaliteMD Red Light Therapy: After trying the TrophySkin MiniMD Microdermabrasion System and having a nice experience with it, I’m curious to try their at-home LED treatment. It’s a combination of red, yellow, amber and infrared bulbs to penetrate different skin levels and treat multiples signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, improve uneven skin tone and boost firmness. The device however is not easy to find in the UK, but there’s Lightstim, which is another interesting option and can be found here or here.

Olay Eyes Illuminating Eye Cream: I’m not using any eye cream at the moment as I use my face products around my eyes, but this Olay eye cream seems to have all the good ingredients: niacinamide, antioxidants, and peptide, as well as mineral pigments, to instantly brighten the area. I also have my eyes on the Olay 3 Point Super Serum for the face!

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette: This is a palette with warm, truffle tones and a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. I find it can compliment all colours! And the quality and pigmentation of Zoeva is amazing.

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in BE740: This is a lovely pinkish nude lipstick with radiant finish and hydrating properties. Next one I want to try and add to my nude list!

YSL Luxurious Mascara for False Lash Effect: With a re-mastered formula, the sense of volume is guaranteed in this classic YSL mascara, with further care ingredients for the eyelashes.
