Gemporia – Celebrating National Selfie Day With Blogger Friends

Hi Everyone
Did you know that last week on the 21st of June was national selfie Day? Did you share yours? 

Here’s what happened on my selfie day….

I was contacted by Gemporia, a Jewellery Boutique full of every gemstone imaginable.This is their mantra

“Gemporia offers the very best in stylish affordable jewellery and responsibly made genuine gemstone Jewellery” 

The plan was that some of us over 40 bloggers (I’m well past that!) were to choose our favourite piece and show it off via a selfie. I was put forward for this by my good blogger buddy Emma, but I didn’t know who else was involved.

I set about scouring the site for something to choose, and boy is there a lot to choose from! 

Here is what I chose

These beautiful bangles, one of Aquamarine, my favourite, and the other two are Sky blue and white topaz, and for contrast I chose Amethyst. All surrounded by little White Topaz gems.You can find them here

I was surprised at how affordable it all was and actually wondered what the quality would be like, but I was very pleasantly surprised. When you start your Christmas shopping or any other gifting times, take a look at what you can find on this fantastic site.Or even better treat yourself!

On the actual day of the National selfie, I loaded my photo up and found two of my other blogging buddy’s there! So impressed with their photos and what they had chosen I thought I would share them with you, plus my own of course.I always get a bit nervous of the close-up selfie, but it’s good to show the world that us over 40 women have a voice when it comes to fashion and beauty. We are just as powerful in the industry now as the 18-40 yr olds!

So here’s Moi!

Meet Emma of The Style Splash. Emma chose a Tanzanite ring.The baby of us all and you would never think she was in her forties!  Do take a look at her Instagram here

Gail of Is this Mutton? Chose an Opel ring. So elegant. You can find Gails Instagram here I know a lot of you already know Gail for her fabulous fashion and beauty blog.

Anna of Annas Island Style has chosen a Citron Feldspar ring. Anna works in an art gallery on the Isles of Scilly.I’m always admiring her photos. You can find Anna’s Instagram here

I thought it was lovely for us all to be featured together on this campaign. I’m not sure if the girls knew it would be us together, but for me, it just made the article that little bit more special.

Do take a look at all the beautiful sparklies that Gemporia have to offer.
