Timothy Roe 'Kissing Hearts' Spinning Ring: Review & Photos

Timothy Roe stock a large selection of jewellery including Spinning Rings, Lovelinks, Bjorg Jewellery, Timothy Roe Fine Jewellery and many more. There are plenty of beautiful pieces to choose from and I can guarantee that there is something for everyone. No matter if you like sparkle, shine or something a little plainer, there will be something for you. 

Not long ago Alan from Timothy Roe Jewellery kindly offered to send me one of their finest pieces of jewellery. Alan gave me the option of choosing a pair of earrings or a spinning ring, as I have about a million pairs of earrings I decided to choose one of the spinning rings. I chose the 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring, a plain silver ring with 3D hearts. 

How is the 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring described online?

Kissing Hearts Spinning Ring, Sterling Silver: 139-06 “Kissing Hearts” Spinning Ring, Sterling Silver, CZ.  Can be worn on its own or stacked with others to make a unique combination.

So what does the 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring look like?

How many sizes is the 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring available in?

The ring is available in four different sizes; XS, S, M and L. All of the spinning rings are available in these four sizes.

How much does the 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring retail at?

The spinning rings retail between £19.00 and £49.00 but this particular ring retails at £19.00. 

Where can you buy the 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring?

The 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring can be purchased online at Timothy Roe

Are there any other spinning rings available?

Yes there are 'Birthstone' spinning rings, 'Ring Max' spinning rings and 'Primo' spinning rings. The Birthstone spinning rings retail at £49.00, the Ring Max spinning rings retail at £35.00 and the Primo spinning rings retail at £19.00. 

To give you an idea of the other spinning rings Timothy Roe have to offer, here are a few of the Ring Max spinning rings. 

"Couple" Spinning Ring

"Magic Hearts" CZ Spinning Ring 

"Hearts Forever" Spinning Ring

These three rings are utterly beautiful and I'm sure the majority of you will agree with me. 

What I like...
  • Quality - The quality of the ring is outstanding and I think it's great how the ring is made from sterling silver, I honestly cannot believe that this ring only retails for £19.00. Looking at the ring you'd expect it to retail for around £50, if not more. The ring is super shiny, the gems are super sparkly and it feels very sturdy. Another great thing about the ring is that it doesn't leave you with green fingers either. If you were thinking about buying similar stacking rings from the high street then please think again and spend a little extra on a Timothy Roe spinning ring. 
  • Lightweight - Despite the ring being made from sterling silver, it feels very lightweight. The ring feels so delicate and dainty on your finger. 
  • Packaging - The ring is displayed in an elegant purple box which is lined with co-ordinating purple satin. The Timothy Roe logo is also displayed on the box lid. I think the packaging is absolutely lovely and I genuinely think other jewellery companies should take note. It's refreshing to see nicely packaged jewellery. 
  • Price - This particular ring retails at £19.00 and I think this is a VERY reasonable price. It's a lovely well made ring and in my opinion, it's worth a lot more than £19.00. The spinning rings retail between £19.00 and £49.00 which is excellent. So lovely yet so affordable.
  • Flexibility - I love how the spinning rings can be worn alone or can be stacked with other spinning rings. I would also wear the ring with plain band rings just to show off the red sparkly heart contained within this particular spinning ring. 
  • Variety - To be precise, Timothy Roe stock 53 different spinning rings, that is a whopping selection to choose from! 

What I dislike...
  • Size Option - I really wish that the spinning rings were available in proper ring sizes as opposed to XS, S, M and L. For reference I always buy XS rings from Miss Selfridge and they fit perfectly so on the basis of this, I opted for a size XS on Timothy Roe. I found the Timothy Roe XS to be a lot larger than the Miss Selfridge XS which makes me think that the rings come up a little larger on Timothy Roe. In order for me to the wear the ring without fearing it will fall off I have to wear it on my pointer finger, a finger I would never wear a ring on. If the ring was available in proper ring sizes I would not have this issue and would be able to wear the ring on the correct finger. By 'proper' I mean proper sizes like 'K', 'L', 'M' and so on. 

Despite the ring being too big, I think it's a beautiful ring and it's definitely something I'd wear on a daily basis. The ring is appealing to the eye as it's both shiny and sparkly, and it's also a very feminine, delicate ring, these attributes will appeal to the majority of people. 
The spinning rings would make lovely gifts for friends and family as they look more expensive than they actually are. So if you're ever in the position where you want to buy something that looks fancy but doesn't cost an arm and a leg, check out Timothy Roe's finest spinning rings.

My experience with Timothy Roe has been brilliant and I'm so grateful that I was given the opportunity to review one the beautiful spinning rings. I now know of a lovely jewellery company and I'll recommend the company to my friends and family. 

Would I recommend? YES, YES, YES! A great quality ring with an amazing price tag!
Would I purchase myself? Yes, I would purchase many of the spinning rings! 
Rating? 10/10. It's an utterly beautiful ring. 

Have you heard of Timothy Roe before? And more importantly will you be checking out the lovely pieces of jewellery they have to offer?

*The Timothy Roe 'Kissing Hearts' spinning ring was sent to me for review purposes. This does not effect my thoughts and opinions on the products. As always, my reviews are 100% truthful.

My 21st Birthday

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or are my friend on Facebook you'll know that yesterday I turned 21. I had such a brilliant day so thought I'd share my day with you all in the form of a blog post. I took heaps of photographs but I've only included a few as this blog post would be longer than a toilet roll if I included them all. 
My mamma and sister also have more of my birthday photographs on Instagram so feel free to check those out if you so wish, some of them are from when I was a little baba too! My mamma's Instagram name is '14Flossy' and my sister's Instagram name is 'alicia_den'. 

I truly had the best day ever yesterday, I received the most amazing presents (of which you'll see at the end of this post), saw lots of lovely family members and friends throughout the day and then I had family party at night. I also went to ASDA covered in badges and wore fluffy deely boppers! It was a really fun day and if truth be told, I didn't want it to end! 

Also, I'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday. It was so lovely of you all and I was touched by your nice comments. Your comments and kind words contributed to my wonderful day. I tried my best to thank each and everyone of you on Twitter and Youtube and I still need to reply to lots of you on Instagram so if you haven't received a thank you from me yet... thank you, thank you, thank you!

Outfit Of The Day: Tribal Skirt & Devil Shoes

You're probably all wondering why I titled this OOTD 'Tribal Skirt & Devil Shoes' but it will all make sense if you read my waffle at the end of this post.  

It's been a glorious day today so I thought I'd make the most of it and wear some of my lovely summery clothes. I have a wardrobe full of unworn summer clothes so I'm trying to wear them whenever I get the chance to. I heard on the grapevine that the nice weather ends on Friday (my 21st birthday *cries*) so I'm going to try and wear some of my summer clothes this week! 

Anyway, enough the summer clothes tale, here's what I wore today! 

Denim Jacket: Topshop, Sheer Top: Topshop, Crop Top: Topshop, 
Maxi Skirt: River Island, Ballet Pumps: Primark, Necklace: Forever 21

I have been wanting to wear this skirt for a while but because it's literally rained non stop since April, I've not been able to. A skirt in puddle situation would not be sexy at all.
When I saw that it was cracking the flags this morning I jumped at the chance and popped the skirt on. It's a lovely maxi skirt but I can't help but think I look like a tribal warrior when wearing it. The skirt has a split at either side so if I spread my legs apart I look like something from Zorro. Despite the 'Zorroness' it's a nice skirt and it's perfect for wearing in the hot weather as it's nice and breezy.

Also, as you all know, I love mint green and I especially love my mint green ballet pumps as they're such an amazing colour but the one thing I don't like about them is that they feel awful, I wouldn't be surprised if they were made by the devil. No matter how much you try and 'break them in', it will just not happen. They are the most uncomfortable shoes ever and they leave you with massive blisters... attractive. The only reason why I put them on is because they matched my top and necklace so well. In future I'll be wearing them when I'm only going to be out the house for half an hour.

I really liked this outfit and this is mainly due to the mint greeness, however, I slightly regret wearing a sheer top over my crop top as I've been boiling all day. In hindsight I should have left the denim jacket and sheer top at home.

Have you made the most of todays glorious weather?

How to create Cupcake Nails!

If you have followed my blog from the very beginning you will know that I have already done a cupcake nail tutorial (of which I have now deleted), so you're probably wondering why I'm doing another. Well I'm going to tell you now.
The reason why I am doing another cupcake tutorial is because, to be quite frank, this cupcake design is 100% better than the other one. The old design is absolutely naff in comparison to this one.

So if you would like to create super funky cupcake nails, keep on reading!

What you will need:
  • Mint green nail polish
  • Bright pink nail polish
  • Pale pink nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • Pale blue nail polish
  • Yellow nail polish
  • Orange nail polish
  • Green nail polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Nail art brushes

If you would like to create cupcake nails all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps!

Step One:
Apply 2 coats of the mint green nail polish to your nail. (This is the base)

Step Two:
Apply the bright pink nail polish to half of your nail. (This is the cupcake case)

Step Three:
Using a thin nail art brush and the pale pink nail polish, add several lines to the bright pink part of your nail. (cupcake case)

Step Four:
It's time to create the cupcake icing. Using a thin nail art brush and the white nail polish, create a curvy semi circle on top of the join between the mint green and bright pink nail polish. If this step sounds complicated, have a look at the photo below.

Step Five:
For the cherry you will need to use a large dotting tool and the red nail polish. Simply dot a large dot at the top of the cupcake.

Step Six:
For the sprinkles you will need to use a thin nail art brush and the pale blue, yellow, orange, green and pale pink nail polishes. Simply create small lines on the cupcake icing.

Step Seven:
Apply a top coat. This will not only protect the design but it will also give the nails a nice shine too.

And we're done!

I hope you liked my cupcake design and if you have any nail tutorial requests, please let me know.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post!
