Individually Different , Creative , Fun and Beautiful Jewellery from My Flash Trash

I have always been a fan of My Flash Trash's  jewellery . It's distinct , uncommon ,unique and original pieces are what first hooked me to the brand .

I was recently looking through the website when I saw an online treasure trove of must have jewellery pieces that you should really take a look at .

Here are some of my absolute favourites....

1.  Eclipse
This beautiful dark silver crystal ring is full of mystery yet perfectly simple and that is why I adore it.

2. Amethyst Crystal power necklace
Staying with the crystals I think that this jagged piece of crystal is edgy yet still entirely feminine .

3. My Flash Trash also sell accessories like iPhone cases this is my personal favourite because its deep hearted and a little reminder everytime you look at your phone of rummage through your handbag what you really want in life .

4. The Jewelled Petal Collar
This chic , exquisite collar is perfect for A/W as its  colourful petal shape glass gem stones are in seasonal shades and it would look great with nearly every low key outfit .

The Low Backed Dress , YAY or NAY

The Low Back on a dress or top make or break an outfit . To be honest I think that they can look stunning , tasteful and chic but if they go the other way they can just look awful . To wear them I think that you need very good posture and small waistline as if not they can be very unflattering.

Do you think that there is such a thing as a beautiful back ?
It's not something most people really think about in day to day life . However I think that a beautiful back is subtly sexy and striking . And for day to day wear its really nice in interesting shapes and cuts . I particularly like this black maxi dress from ASOS .

I have noticed quite a few Low Backs around this season and I think that we will see them more and more as the season progresses into Winter.

Image 1 of ASOS Maxi Dress with Low Back
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and one of the most complicated high-street 'cut' designs I have ever seen . I love the whole black and white theme of the dress . The thin stripes and specks of black are a nice touch.  It is really unique how the straps on the left and right wrap around her body, which is flattering to her body. The revealing, yet intricate cuts on the back of this Low cut dress make this a YAY for me ! What about you ?

The kimono (着物) is a Japanese traditional garment worn by men, women and children. The word "kimono", which literally means a "thing to wear" (ki "wear" and mono "thing"), has come to denote these full-length robes.

I must say I love these oriental oversized cardigans .  They have also become one of the must-haves of this season. They became Fashionable in The fashion world when they were seen in and around festivals with people wearing them with cut-offs and wellies.

However what I love most about them is the variety of kimonos they range from long , short , fringe or not bold or light you can choose everything !

Sound Cloud - A Music Platform That Will Change Your Life

Ok so Soundcloud is probably the best thing that happened to me since well ..... urm a long time  !
Soundcloud is an online 'audio distribution' platform it lets  its users upload, record, promote and share their originally-created sounds. But I just use it for broadening my musical horizons.

SoundCloud is increasingly becoming a well known social media tool geared for both new and established artists to distribute various media online not limited to DJ mixes, musical compositions and podcasts. It is also increasingly becoming a popular music discovery tool aimed at web users seeking to expand their range of music tastes.

My favourite thing about Soundcloud is the amount of mixes of one song , for example I was listening to 'Attracting Flies' by AlunaGeorge but then I saw the 'Shift K3Y Remix ' of the song and I was like 'what hole have I been living in' and from then on I have found so much music that has inspired , motivated and interested me !

You can make sets and repost songs - so easy !

And it gets better - You can download the songs for free or there is a link on some of the songs to take you to download it on iTunes ! PLus all the free songs appear in your iTunes anyway !

You can follow me on Souncloud if you would like : my username is

I really recommend it -
