Karma Se7en Jewellery – REVIEW

Hello Everyone!!

Last week I got a very exciting e-mail asking to review some jewellery. Naturally, I said yes please!! So, here we are…

Karma Se7en were very, very, generous & sent me some really lovely pieces of (my choice) body jewellery to review. Below are pictures & info about all of the things I got.

First though, I’d just like to praise them for their postage alone, I placed my order mid afternoon & it arrived on my doorstep the next day – amazing!!

They arrived beautifully packaged, *not like other companies that just shove everything in a jiffy bag* these were individually packaged in lovely little pinky / purple boxes (which match the website), with the jewellery presented in cute little plastic containers that fitted neatly inside *swoon*. It was such a nice surprise to see the effort & care put in to packaging the items, because as I said before most other online jewellery shops normally just shove them in a little plastic bag. Like most girls, I’m a sucker for cute packaging, so these guys literally had me at Hello!

*Also, check out the neat little bands that hold the studs in place in the tubs – so awesome!*

I ordered mostly ear-piercing jewellery because that’s where I have the most self inflicted metal filled holes. *There’s a sentance I may never say again!!!* They had loads of options for other places on the body too. 😀

I wanted most of the jewellery on the website, but I especially wanted this unique little thing:

IMG_2267I really loved this little arrow set, it came with the chain studs that are attached & a matching dangly earring too, I think they’re such a lovely statment piece & I’ve been wearing them none stop since I got them! I have quite sensitive skin / ears & I’ve slept in these for two days now & they don’t irritate or bother me at all which is a bonus. Most other jewellery from say, Claire’s (Accessories) for instance normally have to be taken out after I’ve worn them for the day because they make my ears sore, but these are absolutely fine on me. (Not just the arrows!)

*I played with putting the attached ones at the top of my ear but I liked how the chain sat at the bottom of the ear best on me*

I really love these little heart studs too, they’re understated but add a little sparkle to the lobes.

I also got these awesome studs: (I use them for my tragus piercing but they may fit / are really for else where)

They all fit really well & I think they’re all equally awesome. There was also an ice cream & other cute little studs on the website too, I found it SO hard to choose which ones to have.

I’ll start from the first one there; Three little stars – I have quite small ears compared to the average person, so I sometimes find that tragus studs like this swamp me a little bit, but I was really happy with the fit of these little guys & I love the hint of colour & sparkle that catches the light from the gem stones inside.

IMG_2312Next up is this beautiful little dangly heart with little crystal details on the stud & in the centre of the heart. I think I’ll wear this one most on a night out or somewhere fancy because I think it’s quite elegant & sweet.

IMG_2318I absolutely LOVE this octopus stud, it’s so unique & quirky, I’ve never seen one like it before & it was a complete must have for me. I just love his little blue eyes!

IMG_2328The last one I got was this lovely little bow. There were other coloured crystals you could get but I liked the look of the clear ones the best, I thought it would go better with all of my other selections & is easy to pair with clothing *sometimes I like to be a bit matchy matchy*!

Karma Se7en have ‘buy one choose one free’ on their website which makes me want to shop there even more, it’s not just a ‘here’s something similar to one you liked’ jobby either, it’s CHOOSE one – so the more you add to your basket, the more you get FREE, yep free. I think you’ll agree, that’s pretty amazing & to top it, it’s the only online jewellery shop that does this. So if you’re looking for some gorgeous, unique & beautiful body jewellery – I can’t think of anywhere better to go, there’s loads of choice, amazing delivery, packaging AND you get to choose more for free, So, it’s a bit of a no brainer.

The website is really well laid out, on the laptop or on your mobile, both are really simple to navigate through & it’s super easy to find what you’re looking for by choosing which jewellery type (body part) or material you would like, or even searching keywords for what you’re looking for. I honestly doubt I’ll shop at another body piercing jewellery site after this little gem has popped onto my radar.

If you haven’t guessed already, I highly recommend you go & take a look. I think you’ll be nicely surprised at the amount you get for the very reasonable prices you pay & the super quick delivery is just the icing on the cake. So go ahead, have Christmas come early to your house too & spoil yourself *or someone else* with some new metal.

Head on over to Karma Se7en & take a look. If you do buy anything, let me know what you got & how you like it, because I’ll definitely be heading back over there soon to get a few more bits! (Which I’ll also probably review!)

Speak soon,

Hello Everyone!!

Today I thought I’d just do a little update post for you all to let you know a little about what I’ve been up to in the new year.

To be honest, I’ve not done too much! I’ve started my new years resolutions, which were;

1, Lose weight / eat right / get fit & healthy.

2. Get organised

3. Have more ‘me’ time

4. Try new things…

So, as I said, I’ve already started back on my healthy lifestyle plan, it’s going well so far, but I’m making sure I just ease myself back into it rather than jumping straight from my very *cough* unhealthy Christmas into a super healthy lifestyle again, because I know I would fail myself miserably. *I’m following Slimming World*

I’ve also started to get a bit more organised too, we took down all the Christmas decorations *sob* a few days back & we did a bit of a spring clean at the same time. We’re trying to get everything organised for when we move away this year anyway, so any little things we can throw out or put in storage is a massive bonus.

Having more ‘me’ time is proving difficult, mostly because I’m rubbish at setting aside time for myself, I always find something else to do rather than just relaxing, but as most of you will know, having a toddler & having a house to run makes ‘me’ time a thing of the past. I’m working on it though & I’m promising myself a lovely relaxing bath tomorrow night with one of my Lush bath bombs that I got for Christmas. *well done hubby to be* 😉

Trying new things is a hard one, but I’m gonna make sure I put in the effort to try new things this year, even if it’s food that I swear I don’t like without trying it, or going somewhere or doing something out of my comfort zone….I’ve promised myself to at least try anyway.

Other than these things, I’ve not been up to much…I will, however, be posting on here more regularly (another promise I’ve made myself) so look out for my posts. 🙂

In other news, I’m starting to get my photography page back on the go *click here* so please go & check that out & ‘like’ the page to keep up to date with new photos being added & little treats that will be popping up here & there. I realise it’s pretty blank at the moment because I’ve deleted most of my content so I can start fresh, but it will be filling up in no time…

Please check out & follow all my other social media – *links are at the top of the page*

Speak to you soon, Kate, xo

Stepping out from behind the lens…

26.07.14

Sometimes I feel that I spend too much time behind the lens. That I miss what I’m actually photographing. I feel I’m missing the experience of those precious moments I won’t ever get back, because I’m too busy making sure that I capture them to have on photo paper, much like an image diary.

I’ve never had the best memory, I’m always forgetting things, important things that people have said / things I’ve done. I forget, until I’m reminded that is…

For instance, recently I went for a week away with my Fiance’s family. We went for a day out to a waterfall walk, one that seemed really nice, but in the end we couldn’t walk it because we have a son who had only just turned one at the time & the walk wasn’t pram friendly….

Anyway, a few days later I was telling my cousin all about it when she said ‘it’s the same exact place that we used to go when we were kids’ – with my Grandad when he was a scout leader. Then, it all came flooding back, but up until that point, it was just a lovely walk that I’d never seen before. – That, however, was just my bad memory & had nothing to do with a camera.

I decided to step out from behind the lens a few days before that whole walk / not remembering / then remembereing happened, at my Son’s first birthday party. Everyone was singing, I kneeled next to him, also singing happy birthday & I watched him looking at his cake & smiling the biggest smile I’ve ever seen & looking so overjoyed with the whole experience. I loved that I was right there, in the moment with him, enjoying it & watching every delighted twinkle in his eyes. Now though, I can’t help but feel saddened by the fact that I’ve not got it documented, to treasure forever, in front of me. I’ve not got something I can look at to remember that exact moment when I felt so proud of my little boy & proud of myself & my fiance for making such a gorgeous, happy little man.

Of course I’ll always treasure that warm feeling I got inside seeing him so happy & being right there with him, rather than having my face hidden behind my camera, but I’ll always regret not capturing it.

So, my question to you, parents, photographers, both….do you ever get this feeling??
