A GOOD FRIDay find..

Like me, if you're a follower of Vicky at #GOLLYGOSH or Sara at saraluxe, you'll know they have jewellery collections to be jealous of. I've always loved necklaces and have a drawer full to prove it, but I've never been too fussed about rings. To be honest even my engagement ring was a bit of a struggle wearing to start with.

My beautiful engagement ring (and wedding ring..) designed by the Mr..

But recently, with amazing collections from Wired Jewellery and cute finds at Rings and Tings my hands have started to feel a bit naked. That's never happened before.. But where do you start when you have nothing? I don't know my size, I don't want to spend too much money and I'm not even sure I'd wear them..

Fortunately, I was in the mood for shopping for tea towels today. No really, bare with me.. If it wasn't for the tea-towel-of-my-dreams* search I wouldn't have called into Matalan.. And found that ALL of the jewellery was buy 3 for the price of 2 !! Here is my mini-haul and the start of my new ring collection..

I'm in love 

I was so surprised to find they have some really beautiful pieces, all of which I felt you can integrate with what you already own AND have a try on in store. I spotted sizes were from 16mm to 21mm (as well as the occasional S, M or L) with ring prices from £3.50 to £6..

 Some of my favourite ring combinations with Barry M nail varnish (115 Red black) ..And yes, that's Tiddles looking cute in the background..

Managed to get myself a new camera bag too - £8 and perfect !

So it was a pretty successful shopping trip. I've had a look online and there is no where near the wide selection as in store but the 3 for 2 offer still stands. Check it out here.
Thanks Matalan, this never fails to amuse me..
So will anyone else be making a trip to Matalan to stock up on some amazing jewellery finds and take advantage of their 3 for 2 offer?** Has anyone else found equally gorgeous jewellery somewhere unexpected?
Also, just want to say a HUGE thank you to all my old and new followers. I didn't expect to, but I'm pretty overwhelmed to have made it to 100 !!

*The tea-towel-of-my-dreams search ended when I found purple tea towels. Don't hate.
**Again, no one asked me to write this post. Just thought I'd share a bit of Matalan love over the Easter weekend.
