My contract at work ended this week. The lady on maternity leave returned and there were no other vacancies. Gutted is an understatement. With nothing else lined up afterwards – despite weeks of job hunting and sending out my CV – I’ve been feeling quite low :( Then this week I received a lovely little parcel in the post from Anouska of Junkie Lovers Boutique. When I opened it, this is what I found:
With the tissue paper packaging wrapped that neatly, it seemed a crime to rip it open.... but boy, am I glad I did!
Joy and behold this beaut I found inside. I am somewhat of a chocoholic so this necklace was the perfect choice.
This handmade KitKat creation, you could tell it had been crafted with care. And so realistic too – it will take all of my strength not to nibble at it at some point(!) Junkie Lovers Boutique also offers two other mouth-watering designs for all chocoholics out there – Toblerone and Dairy Milk:

Stocking a variety of necklaces, brooches, bracelets and rings, Junkie Lovers Boutique has something for everyone.
- Shipping is offered at an astounding £1.50 – bargain!
- Fast delivery – I was so impressed with how quickly I received the parcel
- The chain is a good length. It’s not too short so it won’t choke you – but at the same time, it’s not going to get in the way like some of the insanely long necklaces on sale out there.
- Just how much it looks like chocolate. There are a few patches of colour variation like what you would get on an actual bar of chocolate:
Not necessarily a negative, but a valid enough point... I like a lot of things on the website but at £10 or so a pop, I wouldn't be able to afford many things in one go.
To conclude this review, I always think it’s nice to see how things look on. Yes, my photos of the necklace artistically draped over flowers were awesome, but they won’t give you an idea of dimensions, how it hangs and etc.
Apologies but I don’t have a “photographer” at / on hand nor do I own a tripod, so you’ll have to put up with a pretty awful self taken photo. Here goes…
As well as the necklace, I'm wearing my trusty shorts, tan wedges and a light weight knitted top that I got in Republic a few years ago. A bit of a silly idea really what with the Indian summer we've got in the UK at the moment. I did change into a short sleeved sheer blouse very soon afterwards!
I love the length of the necklace – it tucks into the scallop detailing on my top beautifully. Also the fact that it stands out is great – I find that most necklaces tend to get lost in my hair (I have lots of hair).
I would just like to take the opportunity to thank Anouska for sending me this delight. I adore it and will be wearing it every chance I get :)
