Heavy Metal


So I wear black a LOT and although my spring resolution is to add more colour to my wardrobe, for the time being I’m going with what I know best – metals… and a red lippy.

A very dear friend of mine, Ciara, bought me this gorgeous necklace as a belated Birthday gift.  She knows me only too well, as this is the perfect addition to my wardrobe.  It’s from Topshop and is the ideal statement necklace to adorn wardrobe basics.  I wore this over a black long-sleeved mini dress and black heavy denier tights, finished off with chunky high-heeled biker boots.  It instantly adds edge and style to an otherwise ‘boring’ outfit and I love it!

Silver is my preference but recently I have started to mix my metals – bronze, gold, rose gold and silver. The more metal the better.  The Birthday gift is silver and gun-metal in colour.



Mabel (my housemate’s cat) enjoyed helping me take my Instagram pics… however, she chose not to wear the necklace. Or the MAC lippy. Spoil sport.

Sadly, the necklace is no longer available but I’ve taken a look at the selection on offer at Topshop and found these which offer a similar look… I especially love the one on the very right.

L-R: £16.50, £25.00, £28.00





Happy Birthday jonesloves.com!

We’re gonna come together, we’re gonna celebrate
We’re gonna gather around like it’s your birthday
I don’t wanna know just what I’m gonna do
I don’t care where you’re going
I’m coming home with you

Firstly – Happy New Year to all you lovely blog readers and secondly I’d like to wish my blog a very Happy Birthday!
A year ago today jonesloves.com was born – a whole year, 21,000 hits and 99 posts later, and I’m still going with lots more ideas to throw into it.

I’ve loved having this little creative outlet I can call my own.

I’ve been quite good with regular posts but in 2012 I aim to be even better, bringing Joneloves.com readers blog posts twice a week (for definite!) and some exciting giveaways to boot.  I have some exciting features lined up, but for now, please enjoy a little bit of ‘Birthday’ love from these American hotties… my favourite band.

(I couldn’t find a decent video but here are some KOL images backed onto the track for a little aural and visual pleasure, enjoy!)

PS. I saw them in 3D on TV last night – I could ‘virtually’ touch them.


I’m a LUCKY LUCKY girl.

Wow, I LOVED my Christmas/Birthday presents this year.  Not only did I receive homemade gifts, a ridiculous amount of chocolate, pretty bits and bobs, and money, but also these favourite items below.

Thank you to my gorgeous friends and family. x
