So the final countdown is on and we are T minus 4 weeks until Christmas, I myself have only really started getting into the spirit this week after hearing the Salvation Army play in Victoria Square. I spent Saturday morning battling through the crowds to begin my Christmas shopping which I was pretty successful at. When I got home on Saturday after a crazy shift at work and finishing my shopping I was able to finally sit down and unwrap my Christmas present from the lovely people over at Argento.

I have always been a jewellery person, its just one of those things that I feel always makes the perfect present, you don’t have to always spend a complete fortune to find the perfect gift for a family member or friend. When the team at Argento asked me did I want to pick something I jumped at the chance to be able to show you guys what I felt was a great pick for a Christmas gift.

I decided to pick this beautiful sterling silver and turquoise ring. (link is to necklace ring isnt currently online) What I love most about this ring is that it is a statement piece whilst not being to much for everyday wear. Another great thing about this ring is that it is adjustable, I myself don’t have the skinniest of fingers and it is great to have the option wear it on whatever finger I want. I also think it would be a great layering piece to wear with all kinds of jewellery.

I also loved having a good flick through the magazine, I am sure you guys remember that I was lucky enough to help out on the campaign shoot a couple of months back and it was lovely to be able to see the finished product!

Last Tuesday morning I was lucky enough to be invited to the Next press launch of the Next day delivery service in Northern Ireland. I don’t know about you guys but nothing annoys me more when websites promise next day delivery at an additional charge but because we are in Northern Ireland and not mainland UK it never is next day. Well finally a retailer has heard this and Next have launched a service which means that even if you order right up until 10pm the night before you will still receive the item the next day.

Unfortunately my lovely fancy camera is sadly broken at the minute I have had to make do with phone photos which aren’t my favourite way of showing you guys an event but needs must. The even was held in the beautiful surroundings of Robinson and Cleaver . In a change from the usual event which are held at the evening Next switched it up and put on a breakfast event which allowed a lot more people to attend because you could run by on your commute to work or in my case on route to an In Magazine cover shoot.

Just some of the amazing food we got at the event, The salmon and mini ulster frys where definitely my favourites, alongside the mango and honey smoothies.

A sneaky wee picture of Ruth from Welcometowillowlane eyeing up the Christmas decorations that adorned the tables. They had put out a selection of new Autumn Winter garments and accessories for us to browse and I have to say I am so impressed with what will be hitting the stores in the next few weeks.

As part of the event Next very kindly gave us a lovely goodie bag which contained a voucher, a watch and some lovely Christmas decorations. I was lucky enough that my watch matches my Argento Lapis blue bracelet and I have been wearing the pair all week without fail, I am a sucker for mixing metals

A massive thank you to the team at next who took such great care of us and made the event so lovely and relaxing

Until next time /// T-J xo
