I am a huge, huge fan of Perspex and acrylic jewellery. When I was growing up the idea of a Tatty Devine name-plate necklace was the height of cool (as it is now, actually…) and ever since then I’ve been adding new bits to my collection, hunting out especially quirky designs wherever I can find them. I came across Dark Jinx on Twitter and immediately started coveting their entire line! They’ve only just launched their first collection, a really eclectic, kooky mix of patterns and colours with a plastic-fantastic, futuristic vibe. As soon as I saw them I completely fell in love with these mermaid earrings (we’re all mermaids, deep down, and don’t let anyone tell you different). I love anything even remotely fairy-tale themed or whimsical, especially with my jewellery. I don’t wear all that much, but when I do I like to wear bright statement pieces that are worth the hassle.

The other piece I picked was this Tox necklace, which reminded me of something designed for the band Chvrches, because it’s so geometric! It makes me think of space and meteors and diamonds and alien life-forms. The plastic is super reflective and mirror-like, and goes beautifully over black clothes or bare skin. I wear it with a black skater dress or on top of a silver silk camisole. How do you guys feel about plastic jewellery? Is it something you wear a lot too? Let me know below in the comments!

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA on the blog-post front recently, I’ve just had so much life shit getting in the way of doing what I want to do. Normal service will now resume. A huge thank you to everyone who entered my teapigs giveaway, it was such fun to do that I plan on holding another one when I get to 600 Bloglovin followers, so if you aren’t following me already, then, well, what you playing at?


Teapigs Matcha Drink Review And Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to my very first giveaway! I feel so happy to be working with such an awesome brand, teapigs, for my giveaway debut. I’ve been meaning to do one for such a long, long time, and I’m so excited to be finally doing it. I have a really special treat to give to one lucky reader; a set of super healthy and delicious matcha tea drinks from teapigs! Matcha tea is a super-concentrated version of green tea, packed full of antioxidants and yummy flavonoids, and mixed up with tasty grapefruit, apple or elderflower juice. My personal favourite is the elderflower; it’s so sweet and delicious that even people who don’t really like the taste of green tea will enjoy them. Personally I’ve always been a big fan of green tea and green juices, and these drinks are like a delightful mix of the two! Really sweet and refreshing, with that distinctive fresh green tea taste running through them. I’ve been focusing on my health more than anything lately (I’ve decided to train for a half-marathon! Wish me luck, I will freaking need it) and having loads of healthy snacks and drinks around really helps keeps it interesting. Sooooo….in the spirit of staying healthy and enjoying it, I thought I’d give one of you guys a set of drinks to try out for yourself. It's only open to entrants with a UK posting address, but all you have to do to enter is follow my blog via Bloglovin, and if you want to get some extra entries just follow me on Twitter, tweet about the giveaway, or leave a comment down below. Not only that, but I have a 10% discount code at teapigs for every one of you to use if you want to go shopping for yourself! Just enter the code ‘thepersephonecomplex’ at the checkout! Don’t say I don’t treat you.
