Hello, friends, let’s be frank for a moment: today’s blog post is what I would like to refer to as withdrawal. Your girl has had to curb her spending addiction and . . . it’s not fun. It’s not a good time. I am craving the feeling of something new and shiny turning up in the post; the hope and possibilities of a new item. Where is my joy? Where is my light?
However, you know, fucking Australia – so that’s really helping me to not spend all my money. If I were saving for something like a car, I don’t think it would be going so well.
(I mean, I live in London. What would literally be the point of a car?)
Today, as I am not spending, I decided to somewhat indulge myself with a quick browse. A little wishlist. Something to tempt you to shop instead of myself. Another Brand Spotlight. Don’t you guys love those?
In this edition, we are looking at ShopCrone, an unbelievably beautiful and witchy Etsy store full of bohemian treasures. Also known as: a real bloody issue for Mia’s wallet. But I’m sticking it out for you guys.
**Links are affiliate links because your girl needs funds.**
(Also, before we even get into the wishlist, I just want to point out: these are all handmade. Just . . . let that sink in.)
This first necklace is the exact thing that sparked this damn post; look how freaking beautiful they are. We already know that I love dried flowers and vials and the two together in a beautiful piece of jewellery? I literally can’t be expected to not fall in love.
It’s like putting Armie Hammer in front of me and saying “nope, Mia, not allowed to look”. Your girl is no saint.
(Moment of appreciation for the fact apparently people that look like this actually exist. Universe take note, please, I want one.)
This beautiful little vial necklace is what I like to refer to as a spell in a jar. Why? Because there are so many beautiful components and different aspects to it. (You really need to see all the listing photos to appreciate it.) Dried rose petals, clear quartz stones, dandelion wishes and a moonstone?
It’s a genuine spell in a bottle. (And I’m feeling very inspired for a DIY, but it would be nowhere near as beautiful and I’m supposed to be saving money.)
I cannot describe how much I love these and I just don’t even know if I want to try.
Clear Quartz Pendant – £42
I know, I know – you hate me for sharing all of these beautiful necklaces that you really shouldn’t buy with you. I’d say I’m sorry, but I’m not and I need you people to suffer my pain alongside me. You guys know how much I love crystals; these babies belong on me.
My friends, I must confess: I have a wee bit of a love for keys. I actually want a really tiny key tattooed – something I will explain another day. So I literally can’t even talk about this necklace, in fear that I might give in and buy it.
Okay, kids, this seems like a somewhat logical place to end this wishlist . . . at the end of me listing the things I want? Yeah, I don’t know either. Moral of the story is: stay away from Etsy if you value your wallets. (And wishlists are easy posts to prewrite. Scheduling posts a month ahead of time for the win.)
Did you guys like this ‘lil brand spotlight? Do you like bohemian jewellery – would you wear any of these? Which necklace was your favourite? Let me know down below!
