Birthday Loot: House of Harlow, Alice Menter and MinkPink Jewellery!

Last weekend I celebrated my birthday and I've been promising photos of my goodies ever since. I was spoilt with lots of gifts (and cake!) including jewellery by House of Harlow, Alice Menter and MinkPink.

Just imagine my surprise when I was handed peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes as well as a huge chocolate cake! No vanilla anything for this girl. Both were made by extremely talented Bristol bakers, delicious...

Along with the chocolate, earrings, books, Wildfox, and lots of other yummy bits (including Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura make up from J), I scored were these jewelz... 

House of Harlow 1960 Large Arrowhead Necklace with Hematite Pave, from my parents.

I adore this necklace given to me by my old folks. I'm a really big fan of House of Harlow jewellery and this necklace is rather unusual. It's perfect for wearing in the day with a tee but would also look fabulous if worn with an LBD.  


This beauty is by Bristol designer Alice Menter. I first discovered her designs back in 2011 when I blogged about some of her pieces. I actually won these bracelet through a Twitter contest but because I needed it in a small, she had to make this one from scratch and sent it to me with a note to say Happy Birthday. When my boyfriend saw it he exclaimed 'That's nuts!' and then started chuckling to himself. Men.


I was given a whole wad of cash on my birthday which allowed me to get spending. I splashed most of it on the beautiful lens that took these jewellery pics (fancy, eh?) and went sale shopping with the left overs. My homegirl Brownie bought me some MinkPink stacking rings for Christmas so when I spotted these MinkPink bangles on sale at Spoiled Brat, they had to be mine.

As cray cray as this may sound, nobody asked to snap a picture of me on my birthday so you'll never get to see what I was wearing. Just know that I felt pretty rockin'! ;) I promise lots of outfit posts next week featuring some of the other clothes/accessories that I received. I still haven't given up on the prospect of snow!

Do you like any of my birthday gifts? Any fellow January babies in the house?

    1. IKR!? I think I found it by googling 'MinkPink jewellery'!! I wish I had another set of the rings, I fear I'm going to wear them out.
