Best Halloween Accessories

I've never been one to go all out on Halloween, but for some reason this year I cannot wait to get partying in my vampy gear. (I think it's because I've been invited to Swankys this year!) When it comes to dressing up, some people like scary, some people like stylish. And here at GEMFASH, we like super super stylish. From floral face masks to spooky home accessories, here are some of my favourite Halloween inspired pieces to get you through the night! Be sure to drop me a comment and let me know what you'll be wearing for the event, and don't forget.. Have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Grey accessories

Embellished clutch, £15, Matalan - buy here
Grey suede heels, £18, Matalan - buy here

Another shopping trip, another blog post. This time I've invested in grey accessories. I've wanted a glamorous clutch for a while and completely fell in love with this embellished one from Matalan. And for £15, it didn't take much persuasion to buy! It's so pretty and can be worn with any coloured dress. It even looks amazing with the grey t-bar heels. Due to the thick heel, they're comfy making them suitable for work which is a big plus for me! I can't wait to wear them!

Today is Saturday and I'm off for a lovely family lunch in the country side. Have a nice weekend x

Things I've learnt since turning 20


A lot of people tell me, 'you're still so young' 'you have the rest of your life ahead of you', and yes maybe I do. But turning 20 is the end of an era - out of your teens and into your twenties. The next ten years is when we do the things we want to do; see the world, get your dream job, meet the love of your life, maybe get a mortgage. It's a scary decade in your life where you create the life you want. Here's a list of things I've learnt since turning 20:

  • It's important to appreciate the little things
  • Sounds cliche but take care of the people you love and don't take advantage of their existence because you never know when they'll be gone
  • Don't waste your time on people that don't matter, concentrate on your true friends
  • I've already started saying things like "back in my day"
  • Making money is important and mostly reassuring 
  • I was one of those that hated PE at school, but now I enjoy exercise. It makes me feel good!
  • You will come across many different characters in your lifetime - good and bad. 
  • Taking time off work is important
  • No matter how hard I try, I will never be a size 8
  • I don't even like drinking anymore. Sometimes I'm out with friends and I will order a glass of water with ice and lemon! Alcohol makes me feel unhealthy.
  • Friends is my favourite programme and always will be
  • Success = happiness
  • Be proud of what you have achieved so far
  • Spend money on experiences, not things
  • Be open to change - everything happens for a reason
  • A smile can go a long way
  • Life isn't perfect

What have your learnt in life?
