Designed by Nature + International Giveaway

beauty blogger long natural nails
To draw inspiration from nature is something very special in itself, and so when you combine this with the fantastic craftsmanship of Designed by Nature, the result truly is wonderful!  I'm wearing the Orchid Buds ring by the brand in its silver form, a delicate shape with a sturdy structure.  The adjustable design is very welcome as the base of my fingers have always been fairly narrow.  I also can't help but view this as a playful twist; by adjusting the ring, the orchid buds shift and create a sense of personalisation without distorting the overall 'blooming orchids' appearance...

Designed by Nature Orchid Buds RingSo, when it comes to beauty, as soon as spring arrives on the scene, I become a creature of habit and reach continuously for nude/pink shades that complement my pale skin.  That's not to say I don't do the same at the height of summer too, however it's at this time of year it seems almost essential.  The freshness of the season can be seen across current beauty trends: nude nails, pink stained lips and dewy skin.  It's all very soft, fresh and natural - the kind of springtime theme both the beauty world and this London-based jewellery brand embrace!  I'm wearing Cutie Pie by Ciate London in these photos, a gentle shade that meets somewhere in the middle of nude and pink.

british fine jewellery bloggerAs I mentioned in my last post, this week I'm visiting Edinburgh for the first time!  I leave tomorrow and so I'm just about to enter the inevitable packing-induced haze; moving back and forth from my wardrobe to my suitcase.  Right now though, I'm happy to be cocooned in a nature-inspired bubble and one featuring orchid bud shapes, green leaves and springtime nails.  See you in a few days!

With love,

Gabrielle x
