Exclusive Jewelry from JUWL Boutique

       Today my lovely readers, I am presenting to you a store you have never seen but will love once you see it. The store is called "JUWL Boutique" and is run by my lovely friend Julie. She makes amazing bracelets and earrings from precious and semi-precious stones. They are all handmade and as you know every stone is different in its own way, therefore each bracelet is unique. Even if there are 2 bracelets made of the same stones, they will still be different as each stone varies slightly in color, texture and shape.
       If you remember my post The Wedding by the Seaside, I wore a white bracelet which was marked as courtesy of the bride. That bracelet is made of white sponge coral beads. Julie has officially opened an etsy store where you can all buy some beautiful exclusive jewelry.
Her bracelets are made of different stones such as:
   - Green Malachite
   - White sponge coral
   - Lilac agate
   - Sand stone
   - Indian agate
and so many others so if you like unique jewelry, go check out her store and Facebook page.

Stay healthy this Autumn/ Winter

About a week ago, hubby had a cold and right before that, I had one. It feels absolutely awful, especially if you cannot lay in bed all day. That itchy feeling in your throat, the constant thumbing in your head, not being able to breathe through your nose... We have all been there.
I have a certain recipe which I prepare all the time and have stored in my refrigerator just in case I feel I might be getting a cold. I also like to use it in early Autumn when the weather is playing tricks on you. I call it the ginger mix. I got this from recipe from my mum who has been using it for I really don't know how long. Feels like every anyway.
Being healthy is the most important thing in our daily lives, therefore I would like to share this recipe with you. I know you may not like it at first because it has a specific taste to it. But if you are not allergic to ginger then I really think you should try it out. I didn't like it either first time I tasted it. I was a kid and thought it tasted absolutely horrible. Over the years, I got used to it. And right now, It's nothing special.
Ginger mix, cure for cold, cold remedy, home made cols syrup.
How to make a ginger mix, how to stay healthy, how to get rid of cold
Here is a step by step instruction on how to make it:
Step 1 - Buy ginger and honey in your local food store if you don't have any at home.
Step 2 - Pull off as many bulbs as you need then clean the ginger roots by cutting off the brown skin with your knife. Do not grate it all together because the skin is really woody.
Step 3 - Grate the ginger so it is in the form of 
Step 4 - Add honey to the grated ginger. Depending on the amount you are making, you want the honey to be enough to mix with the grated ginger. The amount of honey you use also depends on how you like your tea. Personally, I like mine sweet so I use quite a lot. For 2 cloves, try 2-3 tablespoons of honey.
Step 5 - Mix this all together
Step 6 - Transfer this mixture to a jar and store it in your refrigerator. 
       Whenever you feel you are getting a bit of a cold, take 1 teaspoon of this mixture and put it in your tea instead of the usual sugar/ honey you use. Drink your tea this way as many times as you feel required.

Have you tried this mixture before? Any mixture you think is great for curing/ preventing a cold?

Feature Friday: Style Quandary

This week, I am welcoming the lovely Katie of Style Quandary. She is kind and sweet. She made my day last month by leaving e a lovely comment. I am very grateful for that. 
She is a beauty and lifestyle blogger. I like that once you open her page, you can see clearly what her blog is about. She wrote a post lately on Printed Trousers which has some very lovely prints. And my all time favorite post is Each Peach Cake, every time I look at it I want to put my hand into the screen and take a piece. Haha! The cake looks absolutely yummy.

Name: Katie Pearce

Blog Name: Style Quandary

Where we can find you (links): Bloglovin'

Tell me about your blog:           
Style Quandary is an eclectic mix of personal style and articles which explore trends and high fashion. There are also sections on food and travel, with a home design section currently being developed.

What inspired you to start blogging:
I’m inspired by colour and prints and my own wardrobe is a mix of vintage, high street and designer. My favourite piece is a 1930s wool cropped jacket that I found at Glebe market in Sydney; the jacket was made by the tailoring division of the first department store to open in Sydney and is a one of a kind, a bargain at $30! I’m interested in what influences people’s style, referring back to iconic eras such as the 1920s and 1950s, however, I’m also attracted to modern fashion which pushes boundaries, such as Proenza Schouler. I’ve also done a little bit of modelling and really enjoy getting dressed up! 

What you love about blogging:
Blogging is a great way to express yourself; it provides a platform to explore lots of different interests and mediums, affording you the opportunity to engage with people who share similar passions to you.

Ideas/plans regarding your blog:
I’m keen to include another Open Wardrobe feature with pictures from AW12. I've also just published Style Quandary’s first guest post from the talented make-up artist, Frankie Laborda, and would love to explore more guest blogging opportunities. I’m working on some “How to” articles too!

Some Interesting things about you:
I grew up in the middle of a field in Somerset (in a house, not tucked under a bushel). After a few years of city life (Sydney, Cardiff and Cambridge), I’ve just moved back to the countryside, to a small town just outside of Oxford. I’m a huge fan of Australian fashion which I think is the right mix of chic fun. I enjoy old movies (To Catch a Thief is one of my favourites), cooking, running, and returning to Somerset to walk my Gran’s crazy chocolate Labrador. Oh and I’m just about to complete a history MA!

My previous post was about the clothing of Latvian designers at Riga Fashion Mood, and now the details of my outfit to the show.
I wore an over-sized jumper with aztec print leggings and Jeffrey Campbell Lita look-alikes. I am a sucker for JC Litas and if I could, I would already own the originals in different styles. But at the moment I am sticking to lookalikes. I absolutely love the combination of my outfit. I felt so fabulous, it was amazing. I am so glad we went for this event. A big thank you to Julia, love her loads.

Feature Friday: Are We On Time?

This week I am featuring an amazing blogger who is new to the whole scene but will definitely make an impact. The lovely, the amazing Zoe of Are We On Time?. She writes about fashion and I really liked the photos from her post on London Fashion Week. She is not only a blogger, but a singer as well. After I got her entry, I watched a few of her videos and I loved them. She has such a lovely voice; you should definitely listen to her on youtube.

Name: Zoe

Blog Name: Are We On Time?

Where we can find you: Bloglovin

Tell me about your blog:
Are We On Time is a blog about Fashion: personal style, trends, designers etc, but it's not just a fashion blog. I write about photography, arts and music too, in an attempt to show that, although it is important how you present yourself, fashion isn't the only important thing. I don't know how successful I am though!

What inspired you to start blogging:
I actually had a blog before this one called Intrepid Inspirations, which I started whilst on my travels in Israel to keep my friends at home updated. But it fell by the wayside when I got back home and started university.
I'm not really sure how I got back into blogging, but I decided to take a different approach this time. My first few posts had nothing to do with fashion, and I took a more loquacious path to my posts instead of just posting pictures. I also adopted a different photo editing style which you can see in a few of my posts.
This has actually been a pretty longwinded way of saying that a friend of a friend has a blog called Devil's in the Detail, and she inspired me to start my first blog.

What do you love about blogging:
I love the community sense, and the fact that you can look at hundreds of blogs and keep finding the same ones coming back around - it means that they're all connected. I also love how much attention people pay to other people's blogs.
It has also given me the opportunity to do some writing for online magazines, which I wouldn't have been offered were it not for my blog.

Ideas/plans regarding your blog:
Wow, I don't really know at the moment. I guess I should have some aims..!
What I would really like to do is be able to widen my audience further than fashion readers. I want photographers, food-lovers and art fanatics to read it.
I've just started have guest posts from people and have had many more responses than I expected to get, which is great! (Happy to accept entries, though I can't guarantee all will be posted!)
I'd also like to have a meetup with British bloggers, because the US gets all these conferences and I can't go that far to get to them! So if there are any London based bloggers who would like to help me organise something, let me know!

Some interesting things about me:
I saw an article in a London magazine talking about "Slashies", young people who have multiple jobs because of the current economic climate! I haven't got a job at the moment, but I see myself as a future-slashie, if that's a thing! I am also a singer and write my own music (http://www.youtube.com/user/ZoeRpaskett?feature=mhee) and that's my big passion.

Other interesting things about me:
1. I study Anthropology and have become one of those annoying people who see it everywhere and keep talking about it...
2. I prefer frozen yoghurt to ice cream
3. I have no pets, but have my next name prepared should I get one soon: Dennis Linderhill.

If you would like to see some extra ordinary style, or if you need inspiration, visit Stef and Jess.

{Thank you Zoe, it was nice to read so much about you. I feel like I know you much better now. If you would like to be featured, please click here for more details.}

Get the Look: Ashley Benson in mint and black

Get the look Ashley Benson, Ashley Benson, Hannah Marin, Hannah Marin in Mint and Black
Mint Ruffle Top - $17 Black Skirt - $4.85 Blazer - $55 Shoes - $47 Bag - $45 Necklace - $19.40 Earrings - $14.54
Everyone who loves fashion has most likely seen the TV series Pretty Little Liars. Well, I love it and I though it would be great to do a get the look on Hannah Marin's outfit this time. Ashley Benson who is actually known as Hannah Marin in the TV series has definitely got style. I would describe her style as trendy and girly. She loves colors and uses a lot of blues because it compliments her hair color and looks absolutely amazing on her.
I don't actually have a favorite in the PLL characters  but I do like Hannah a lot. She always has amazing outfits and I like the role she plays. I think she and Caleb look absolutely adorable together.
I picked out this look and have chosen items which you can use to recreate it but at a much lower cost. The total cost of the items I picked out is approximately $202.79. The outfit looks sophisticated and at the same time not very official due to the black mini skirt. I think it is great and would totally wear this type of outfit myself.

Do you like Pretty Little Liars? What do you think about Hannah's outfit?
