Introducing Cheap Frills

As most of you will already know, I am a complete sucker for cutesy jewellery.  I just love it.  It's easy to wear, makes you go 'aww' and just well, CUTE! When Cheap Frills emailed me to ask if I'd like to review an item off their online jewellery store I jumped at the chance!

I first noticed Cheap Frills when they started following me on Twitter.  Being intrigued by the store name I immediately had a browse of the store and thought that I would actually wear every single piece of vintage inspired jewellery featured, so when they emailed me I was chuffed! They must've read my mind. Haha.

I feel that I should say even though this item was sent to me for free for the purpose of this review, I will still give it my honest opinion.  I'd be disappointed if I bought something that another blogger had recommended and it turned out to be rubbish and I could never do that to all of you.


EEEEP! LOOK AT THIS! I am obsessed with swallows although if I saw the real bird i'd be petrified, I'm terrified of birds.  I just absolutely love the vintage feel of this necklace too and how good quality it feels.  Some jewellery you buy from little online jewellery stores does seem a bit flimsy and tends to break easily so usually I avoid buying from them unless I see something I really like or can trust the opinion of another person.  Another good quality in this necklace for me is that the chain is really quite long.  I've said before that short chains can make me feel a bit claustrophobic and I always worry that I'm choking.  This swallow necklace retails at £12 which, for a piece that none of your friends are probably going to have, an excellent quality of necklace AND a vintage inspired piece is a really reasonable price.

At the time I got this from Cheap Frills they were offering a free piece of jewellery with every order and they sent me this little cute mouse ring! AAAAWWW! I can't get enough of it! It's tiny though and it was so difficult to get a picture of it.


Cheap Frills have a sale on at the moment too so all the more reason to head over and give it a sneaky peek! They're also holding a giveaway on their Facebook page and also update their twitter really regularly and are such a friendly little company!

I hope you all liked this review and if you haven't already, take a little peek at my youtube channel! :)
