My Precious Pandora Ring from Joshua James Jewellery

I first saw this ring in store and admired how strikingly beautiful it was, but I didn't realise just how much I needed it in my life, until I was given the chance to own it. The Pandora Silver, Black Spinel & Cubic Zirconia Ring at £99 has literally become that one piece of jewellery that I actually want to wear, and even panic when I can't find it. I always say I'm not a big jewellery person, but this ring has really changed my mind and now, I can't go anywhere without it. I've started having my nails done as a monthly pick me up treat, and having this wonderfully imposing and glorious ring on makes me feel a little like a Disney Villain, in the best of ways, of course! I mean more like the glamorous and sassy Disney Villains you see on Once Upon a Time.....

The gorgeous Pandora ring came from Joshua James Jewellery, where they stock everything from Pandora, and Armani to Michael Kors! I never thought I'd be the type to become obsessed with Pandora, and I'm definitely not going down the charm bracelet route anytime soon, but I certainly have my eyes on more rings.... I did want to wait to get the perfect photos to really show off the ring, and thankfully whilst in Liverpool last weekend, we got them!

The Scarlett And Jo Black Prom Dress (£65 but now £45.50 as there's 30% off), landed on my door last week and at first, I really didn't think it suited me at all. At the time I tried it on braless and with my hair and makeup undone, so of course, I didn't look or feel like my regular self. Knowing I just needed the right equipment, I set to planning my outfits for Liverpool and just decided to go with it and pack it regardless and I'm really glad I did. The Prom Dress actually has a very thin belt, but not the usual plastic ones, this is basically a ribbon. Even though I've sized down to a 20 in Scarlett & Jo, in some places there's still a little extra material. So, I used the ribbon to 'trap' the extra material and create a defined waist, before adding a belt to cover it up and define it more.

My Weekend Guide to Liverpool with Travelodge!

After visiting Liverpool for pretty much every single year since birth for family, I thought it was finally time to head there and actually explore the centre, rather than my families' houses. Alfie and I love our weekends away and were very excited when we were treated to a weekend away at the Travelodge Liverpool Central on Exchange Street. We had so many recommendations on where to visit and what to do, that I thought it would be fun to turn this into a 'Weekend Guide' as well as a 'what we got up to' kind of post. We absolutely loved Liverpool, the Travelodge and all the places we visited, so I'm rather excited to share this with you all!

Travelodge Liverpool review, Georgina Grogan, shemightbeloved

I cannot recommend the Travelodge enough for a perfectly affordable and comfortable place to stay. We were originally meant to be staying at the Travelodge closer to the docks, however, due to a little mix up we ended up walking 10 minutes away and paying £10 for a much needed early check in. Our Double Room was rather compact, but had everything you would need for sure. The entire building only has showers (we were told) and it did mean I had withdrawal symptoms from my bath. However, the shower was SO beautiful and had incredibly high pressure, which isn't something you often find in Hotels. Our room was complete with a desk and mini wardrobe, as well as tea, coffee, plenty of plugs and very fancy lights above the bed, in case we didn't want the main light on. We, of course, tried out the all you can eat breakfast and even had a pizza or two on one of our less sober nights. The food was, as I remember from previous Travelodge stays, absolutely delicious and good value for money.

Pink Clove Black Velvet Empire Dress

Following on with my little Pink Clove haul (the first of which you can read here), I have found and now posses one of the comfiest dresses ever.... The Pink Clove Emmie Velvet Empire Dress at £22 won me over immediately, it was an instant 'yes' as soon as I saw it on the site and I couldn't wait to try it on. I asked for this dress in a size 20, as that seems to be the perfect size for me now, however, this dress comes up quite big and therefore I had to size down again. I laughed at the thought of getting into an 18 after 2 years of outgrowing it, but the material is so comfortable that it fit like a glove and was very fitted in all the places I like it to be, such as my arms, waist and bust.

This dress has a wrap neckline which does mean it makes your boobs look fantastic when wearing the right bra, I really appreciated this whilst strolling around York on Valentine's Day as it's such a flattering neckline on me. The 3/4 sleeves allowed me to be comfortable all day long without having to adjust myself, which is a big must for me. When having a day out, I love to just have the one dress on and no cardigans, jackets etc to keep faffing around with or worry about. Of course, I had to stick a Yours Clothing waist belt on as it really helped with the extra material on the 20 and to make my waist look more defined to accentuate my hourglass figure.
