So much love for Temporary Secretary.

/For absolutely agesI have been wanting to dedicate a post to my newest (and biggest) jewellery obsession, the little online world of dreamy cuteness that is Temporary Secretary, but the time never seemed right. I was in the midst of festive craziness, or in a college-y rush or simply thinking it wasn't very relevant on the day - but today is the perfect time to show my adoration of their gorgeous jewellery.

I'll warn you, there's a quick little outfit summary since I actually went to college lessons today.. here's what I wrapped up in today!

Coat - New Look; Dress & Tights - Topshop; Boots - Primark; Socks - Urban Outfitters; Scarf - christmas present; Moose Mittens - ASOS.
I'm not going to lie, today's look was built around the moose mittens. I cannot get over how awesome they are! And so cosy. I went for 'quirky' I think, wearing my opinion-dividing half-and-half tights along with a floral pattern dress and clompy boots..

And now onto the main part of this post. When I arrived home today I had a little box waiting for me from Temporary Secretary, so of course I got a little excited and it took me about ten minutes to get into it.. Once inside I found the sweetest little card, and my jewels all wrapped up beautifully in pink and lemon tissue paper. So sweet. I had bought one of the Lucky Dip bags, the £20 one, because so many of my friends have birthdays coming up and I wanted to treat them to some Temporary Secretary loveliness - and when I started to open the little packages up I had every intention of giving them away. Then I got a little carried away and fell in love with some things, and had to keep them. Shame on me. There can of course be no photos of the presents, because then they wouldn't be a surprise, but here are the goodies I selfishly kept for myself!

These were all just too cute to pass up! The apple core necklace is so kitsch and fun, and will be perfect with some of my more missmatched outfits.. And I may have gotten carried away with the moustaches. I don't know whether it's because a good 'tache is the new geek glasses, but I simply could not bring myself to give either the necklace or the ring away - simply amazing. Finally, you know what a good ring does to me, and this peacock beauty is gorgeous.

I can't even describe how much I adore Temporary Secretary jewels - they are the perfect mix of kitsch and vintage that give killer detail to any outfit. And the little cards/packaging done by the lovely Sarah have such a personal touch that I almost want to keep buying stuff just for the excitement of opening up the boxes! But don't take my word for it, head on over to Temporary Secretary and see for yourself.

One final thing I love is the Temporary Secretary blog, which is regularly updated by Sarah with her outfits, escapades and business-related goings-on. I could probably bang on forever about how amazing her style is (it's incredible, by the way) and how jealous I am of her clothes, hair and general loveliness, but I will suffice it to say that this blog is one of my favourites and is full of fashion inspiration as well as lovely posts to read. It's the best of both worlds over at TempSec for a blogger like me - gorgeous things to buy and a blog to keep me entertained. Seriously, go check this girl out.. you won't regret it! Love and kisses, Tara xox


  1. Not too keen on most of those things; apart from the peacock ring, which is lush!! Xx

  2. @Suddenly I See I will admit it's not to everyone's taste.. but Tempsec is my jewellery heaven! The ring is gorgeous though, can't wait to wear it xox

  3. Oh yes, we know tempsec is not everyone's cup of tea - which is one of the main reason I started my blog - to show everyone that every piece of tempsec jewellery could work! I'm not the "kitschiest" of girls and I always wish I was Katy Perry, but I make a promise to all that there's something for everyone on the website! Thanks so much for the kind words, Tara, I am so grateful for this. I'll retweet and put it on the blogroll this week! lots and lots and lots and lots of love! xxxxxxxxxxx

  4. There really is something for everyone I think.. and a lot of things for me ;) You totally deserve the love, but thankyou so much! :) xox
