They cost anything between $15 to $200 and if you’re thinking “that’s a bit much for an unpractical ring” I repeat…THERE ARE TINY ANIMALS WRAPPED ROUND YOUR FINGERS!

If rings aren’t your thing then don’t fear…he makes other types of animal jewellery (animal shaped jewellery, not jewellery for animals or jewellery made out of animals) ๐Ÿ™€

Cue the hedgehog earings!

If you can’t access Jiro’s blog page to order items because it’s all in Japanese and you’re computer can’t handle translating, then you can find his items on Etsy. Mishakrisha sells rings for ยฃ3.40 and while you areย there, check out the time turner necklace for the same price! Harry Potter love ๐Ÿ’—

And if you are being sensible and want slightly more practical jewellery then check out Cuir Carameliser for beautiful pieces like this gold hedgehog with a blue back.

Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair

Lou Lou's Vintage 12 Novย  ย Everything Vintageย ย  Lou Lou's Vintage 14 Nov

I love shopping and I love vintage so it was no surprise that I had marked Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair in Southampton Guildhall weeks in advance. Entry only cost ยฃ2 (which is less than a coffee) so this counted as a guilt free way to spend a beautiful afternoon.

There were about 20 stalls there selling everything from jewellery to jumpsuits, with jazz music playing through the speakers and a tea and homemade cake pop up cafe in case you need to rest (shopping is a sport).

Quite aware than I could empty my bank account in the space of the afternoon if my spending was not kept on a short leash, I took out ยฃ30 and mentally cut up my bank cards, when down to my last ยฃ5 I would have to decide between cake or one last trinket (first world problems…a girl should never have to choose between cake OR something, cake is very much a word that goes with AND…)

20 stalls would be too much to review, hard to believe but it didn’t seem right to write more than I had for academic papers, so I chose my favourite three that I HAD to buy something from.
