A shy girls obsession x

The other day, I was lying in the bath pondering, why I have such a passion for large rings and I don't mean the kind you leave round the bath tub, when you get out after a long soak!Well can I let you into a little secret, it's because they are simply a shy girls best friend! A large chunky sleek amber ring, was a turning point in my social confidence long before I became a Stylist, advising and aiding other in the quest for there own personal style! You see I was stood minding my own buisness, waiting for a bus, pretty bored and slightly uncomfortable with the que of strangers rapidly forming, when this woman in a stripey mac, said 'OOh I like your ring!' Before I knew it, enthusasium about my chunky ring, quickly turned into a chat about music, favourite places to eat, eyebrows and lots of other pleasant and random chit chat! The ring rescued me from my discomfort about being with stangers and presented me with an opportunity to be more gregarious!!I do happen to also adore statement rings, they give me inner confidence and can add just enough bling to bring a sense polish to my latest outfit!Why not try the big ring theory yourself, let me know what you think!



If you need any more convincing the lovely lady over @ ballerinas closet obsession is offering this ring up for her giveaway! My Tea Dance, fundraiser for Haiti is now closed, many thanks for all your kind support and the money you helped raise from Monday when it first started, I will be posting about how the money you helped raise was used. Sxx

You made such an interesting point. I am not much of a necklace or earring girl because I think it draws too much attention. But give me a huge ring or bracelet & I feel dressed. I love your blog, first visit today. Great week ahead to you ~ deb
