Temporary Secretary + Giveaway Winner

There’s nothing I love more than a small independent business that can completely blow you away. Temporary Secretary is a gorgeous online jewellery shop run by the lovely Sarah.  

She recently sent me a package full of goodies and I literally couldn’t wait to take photos and show you all what was inside. 
It came beautifully wrapped in tissue and ribbon, making it hard to open without feeling guilty. Inside was some rings, a bracelet, an owl necklace and a moustache necklace. I love everything, but I especially love the moustache necklace. WARNING: You will be seeing this is MANY upcoming outfit photos! 


So next time you fancy going to Topshop and spending your hard earned money on mass manufactured pieces, think again and support a young business owned by a creative entrepreneur! She has some gorgeous jewellery and treats every customer like they’re the most important one. I’m very excited by Temporary Secretary as you can probably tell! 


What do you think of my gifts? Don’t you love the moustache??

    I love the look of this jewellery. I’m a big fan of quirky pieces, but without fail whenever I buy something in Topshop I always see about 5 other people wearing the same thing. I’ll definitely be getting myself a little pressie from here at some point!

    That is the nicest thing ever. Really finding it tough to compete with the high street, now more than ever. I guess I am not the only one! It’s such a struggle now. But you have no idea how much your words help, even if it’s just to lift morale and remind myself not to give up!! So glad you like your presents and sorry it was a couple of weeks late! Congrats on being short listed! ROOTING FOR YOU!!! xxx

    I always love to see posts like this, it’s just so reassuring to see people supporting small or handmade businesses. Sarah works super hard as do a lot of us, but like she says, it’s becoming increasingly hard to compete with the highstreet stores. Not only that, everyone and their mother has a jewellery company these days so it’s hard to remain individual and try and stand out from the crowd.

    I love the things Sarah sent you, especially the spiked bracelet and the moustache necklace. I have a little gold moustache necklace from Gogo Philip which I’ve been wearing a lot recently and it definately attracts a lot of attention.

    Congrats on being shortlisted, that’s so exciting!! Will have my fingers crossed for you.

    Choose the specific color of your Designer catier rings is also important. If you need a handbag that can adjust most of your gowns, you must select a perfect style colored down jackets. Do keep in mind for the color corresponds well with dresses that you have.
