Hey everyone, me again! I’m slowly trying to get back into the habit of posting twice a week. Getting back into good habits is hard work and not just blogging either, I’m talking about healthy eating, going to the gym and even simple things like picking out my outfits for the week ahead.
Picking outfits though does lead me on very nicely to my topic for today’s post. I’m the worst at remembering to accessorize my outfits when I pick them quickly on the day, preferring to have picked an outfit from top to toe ahead of schedule, accessories and all (as I write this I have shoes which don’t match my outfit on as well as no jewellery!) 🙂 Those of you who follow me on Instagram or are friends with me on Facebook will have already seen my recent announcement about my brand new and exciting blog collaboration with Mirina Collections who produce the most amazing statement jewellery!
I was so excited to become a Mirina Girl, as their products are amazing, but I was nervous too as their brand ambassadors are all so amazing that I was genuinely wondering how on earth I would be able to measure up, but after giving myself a little pep talk I decided that actually I needed to just enjoy the experience full on.
If you are following lots of fashion and beauty bloggers on Instagram and Twitter like I am you will more than likely have heard of this brand or seen some of their necklaces, however, being an American based company means I had never actually seen one of their pieces in real life or knew anyone who owned one of their products.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Pretty Girl Necklace (although trying to pick one out of their collection was so tough! I ended up getting my group of best friends to help me whittle down my shortlist in the end) and felt like Christmas had come all over again when it finally arrived.
I do have to say that this necklace did take ages to arrive! I placed my order in Mid November and it arrived just after Christmas, but it is all for good reason and was made very clear to me up front. All of the necklaces are handmade, so the delay is down to both craft time as well as shipping time from America. Craft takes 2-3 weeks and shipping obviously can be pretty long and to be honest, it’s quite a nice change ordering something and almost forgetting about it’s arrival when you get home and have a package waiting with such a lovely goodie inside 🙂
When I ordered my necklace I received fantastic email service confirming my order and letting me know when my package had been shipped and when it arrived, it was beautifully packaged which is a love of mine.
The best part about this product? Writing a review is easy as it basically speaks for itself. The Pretty Girl necklace literally transforms any outfit, for example, when mine arrived, I was wearing a plain long sleeve top and jeans and it even went with that outfit, turning it from drab to fab – definitely passable for a girly lunch! It’s a huge piece, but really doesn’t weigh anywhere near as much as you might think and although it is large, it’s muted tones and simple embellishment make it acceptable to wear both in the day time or to completely finish an evening outfit.
- High quality product
- Really eyecatching product
- Easy to wear for both day or night
- Really well made
- Not too heavy
- Great packaging and email service
- Long shipping and manufacture time (totally worth the wait though)
- Relatively expensive (but makes a great investment piece!)
- So many amazing products it’s hard to pick just one (although really not a con at all)
Traditionally I would always rate products 1-5 at the end of my reviews but this year I’m changing it up so there is more variation to the scores I give, and for the Pretty Girl necklace I am awarding an 8.5 out of 10!
I would absolutely recommend Mirina Collections to my friends and am already eyeing up my next purchase from them but had to mark down for the product lead time, eventhough I totally get why it took so long.
