Jubilee Inspired Painting and my new ring!

I have had a free day today, my last day in my University city before I go back home. I'm looking forward to going back; I haven't been home since Christmas, it feels like such a long time ago. 

So, today here is painting I did, inspired by Jubilee themes. I wanted something quite simple as I also have had to pack up my stuff today and I wanted to have this finished before I leave tomorrow. 


I kind of just stuck with a London theme overall, not much is more British than a red telephone box! I added the crown as the "Queen" aspect and the colours are clearly red, white and blue.

Also today, I popped into Boots and their jewellery stand had a few items up for sale. I picked up a lovely dress ring which was priced at £1.50; it should have been £5. I'm not normally a dress jewellery buyer,  I tend to hesitate as items I have purchased before have broken...namely New Look! I never buy jewellery from there anymore.  However, I really did like this and I have never tried Boots before in terms of their jewellery so I thought I would give them a go.



I really like this; I like how cute it is! It actually fits me quite well too, which I find is another bug bare of mine with dress rings! Whether they are small, medium or large I always have difficulty in finding a decent fit, either they're too big and they fall off, or they appear to fit yet are in the end still too big once on and they swizzle around your fingers or....they're way too small and you can just about get them on your pinkie! 

Anybody else have these issues with dress jewellery or is it just me, maybe I have bizarre fingers?

  2. What a cute painting, perfect for the occasion :) The ring is really cute as well, dress jewellery is a great way to have fun with trends without breaking the bank.

      I do agree, I like dress Jewellery, my favourites are probably necklaces and bracelets.

    1. I always get that problem, I very rarely find something of a decent fit. Maybe that's why I snapped this one up :)

      I've had a look at your blog, a follow back indeed! :)
