I admit, I’m slightly obsessed with reading my horoscope. Be it daily, weekly, monthly – hey, if you can tell me what’s coming up in the next hour I’d want to know. But despite all the foresight, I’m still often caught by the element of surprise; albeit the surprise of when a horoscope prediction becomes true, thank you very much Jessica Adams!
Whether I like it or not, I’m a Virgo. At my worst I’m a worrier, perfectionist and analytical; but at my best I’m fiercely loyal, candid and well, uncharacteristically kooky. With my birthday month just two weeks away, and a new job in tow, I wanted to find something really cool this year to gift myself with. Zodiac accessories carry the essence of monogramming without being so obvious, but it’s really hard to find good zodiac accessories that isn’t a cheap pendant on a ball chain!
I did dig a little deeper and uncovered a few gems…so while I work my way up to saving for a gorgeous zodiac Charlotte Olympia Pandora clutch, I leave you with your prediction for the day, gifting ideas are up ahead…

The metallics trend is never too far away, and SS14 happily champions this shining staple yet again. From foil prints, molten metal finishes to frosted pigments and holographic hues, metallics have a way of being rather season-less, working as a standalone statement or as an accent to an existing trend. No matter how you want to embrace it, the good news is what ever piece you invest in now, know that it will be a keeper.
A Touch Of Tonal
Opt for barely there metallics for a frosted, feminine flair.
