I had my ears pierced when I was just five, I remember it being quite the controversy in the playground and most of my friends had to wait until they were at least thirteen (how I feel about this now I have my own is a whole other blog post). But….. I then waited until this year to add three more piercings – three on the right ear and two on the left ear. I think it was rebellion against becoming a mother and everything I thought came with that – sensible dressing, boring clothing choices, not making an effort anymore. I knew when I was pregnant the way I dressed would change but clothes had always been so important to me, I loved being creative with them and the way a new top could make you feel. I was HUGE when I was pregnant, my mini me was nearly ten pounds, and I mainly lived in my super soft J-brand maternity jeans (which my chubby thighs did rip and I had to get a second pair at eight months!). So after my baby was born I was so excited to get back into experimenting with fashion and back to those shops!!!!
My style has definitely changed, I don’t get dressed up to the max for work anymore but i do look after myself and I make careful choices when spending my money, investing in good boots and a coat that will last and adding a few extras to make the seasons wardrobe fun. But jewellery is something I still love to go wild with, key is not to be a show-off, mix designer with highstreet and handmade friendship bracelets for an eclectic look. I love statement necklaces, big earrings, bangles bangles bangles!!! And now with a total of five ear piercings the world is my oyster!!!!
So here is my round-up of some super gorgeous bling I hope will get you inspired to get adding some jewellery to your everyday look, and maybe even some mum-piercings! Dare you!!!
Love for you to comment and let me know any of your own jewellery stories or tips!

I love love love this post! I just added 3 more piercings myself. ❤
I love having so many more options to play with but LOVE just wearing all simple white diamonds… Or cubic zirconium! X
It’s so chic, yet still feels kinda rebellious!
They are gorgeous! I wish I wasn’t such a wimp and had more! I feel you on the maternity and post baby clothes – it’s taken me till the boys were at school till I got back to ME! X

Im so gutted my out of the box ear piercings are all closed up now as I’ve had to remove them everyday for the majority of the beauty companies I’ve worked for. Soo tempted to get a couple done again now though! x
Oh wow I didn’t know they could ask that! Totally go for it, so much fun experimenting xx
