My Pandora Ring Collection ||


I’m fit to scream!! Not only have I been trying to write this post for about 2 / 3 months now but now my stupid blog has decided it doesn’t wanna play ball! Thankfully it’s all sorted now!

Anyway, lets finally talk about these fecking rings…


When it comes to jewellery, rings are my downfall! I think thats why I love stacking rings so much. I can have multiple rings on at once and its expectable!

As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now I love me some pandora! And my previous post was all about “My Pandora Charm Bracelet Collection” Over the years I’ve acquired many so here’s a look at my Pandora ones.

Red Lipstick and Nail Varnish Perfect For Christmas || MagpieMagpie Blog


Hi Lovelies. Who’s ready to talk about Red Lipsticks and Nail Varnish perfect for Christmas. A bold statement lip has become one of my staples, but a red lip can still be daunting even for me. No better time to try that red lipstick than Christmas. A bold statement lip can take your look to another level, red is one of the most iconic power lips and in my opinion, a must have for anyone who loves make-up. 

I have a Red Lipstick and Nail Varnish Perfect For Christmas, and all year round, for everyone in this line up. From the novice to the pro, bargain to blow out. I’ve kept it classic and went for that “Christmas” red, but do keep in mind that these are what I’ve chosen for me. Meaning they suit my skin tone, hair colouring and style, they may not work for everyone. 

I’ve also decided to throw in matching nail varnish. I love matchy matchy so, if I can match my lippie and my nails, I’m all over it!

 1. Revlon

This is one for the novice. Not too expensive and usually on 3 for 2 in boots, so perfect to play around with.

2. YSL

 This will be one for the advanced class. You’ll have tried a cheaper red before and are ready to splash out.

Reasons Festival Lookbook || NewLook


We don’t often see fashion on my blog, but its time for a change. 

I’m heading to Reasons Music Festival next month and I really wanna go all out! I’ve been dabbling in the whole festival make-up side of things, but I thought on the blog I’d throw up a bit of festival fashion. 

There are not many places to shop here in Jersey so I decided to pick my go to when in a pinch, NewLook. The NewLook here isn’t huge, but it gets the job done! Also you can get things delivered to your door or pick up in store so thats why I chose to do my full three looks all NewLook.

Look One:

I fell in love with this cut out body and the rest just feel into place! I thought a pop of colour would be quite cool and these red shorts are so not something I would pick but I’ve been told red suits me so I couldn’t resist. I loved this shade of red and you can’t beat distressed denim.

Next up was the belt. I love belts, and this one just brings the whole look together with it having that pale blue shade that helps marry in the denim jacket. As we know in the Uk and Ireland outerwear is essential! This distressed mid tone denim jacket not only looks great, but is practical (I know what a dirty word).

Boots for me are nesessity, I wear them more then runner and for me they are what I’ll be reaching for. These ones have that great studded and buckle detail that I just can’t seem to get enough of all year round. Another practical item is the backpack. I’ve become very fond of these little beauties and for a festival is a must, especially if like me you’ll be vlogging the event. 

Jewellery wise I just fell in love with this star necklace and then just added some thin gold bracelets and this cool chunky bracelet, to “edge” it up a bit, and our look is complete.



Look Two:

This look is a bit more me. I’m a huge fan of light denim shorts and when I saw these ones with the lace I said “yep, those are for me”!

Oddly enough I only have two bodies in my collection, but i just find them so comfortable and easy, I think thats why I’ve chosen them for the festival. Both mine open at the bottom, hopefully these do too, ha ha, otherwise well be in trouble when we need the loo!! I like my shoulders, but not my arms so this style of body is perfect for me.

Have to add another belt in, this one is that western style which I love on others, but not sure for me…

I’m not sure I’ll be getting a new “leather” jacket, but if I was to get one I’d be all over this one! Love Love Love it!!! That embroidered detail is to die for.

Again boots are a must, these are sure cool and have a real timeless edgy look, I’m defo gonna try these on next time I’m in newLook if they have them. 

And last but not least, accessorise. I tried to pick up the colours from the jacket with this pop of red backpack, smaller then the other one, but still a good size! And if i can get some stars in I will! Loved these simple star studs! And this choker just finishes off the outfit!



Look Three:

Look three is for the girly ladies, still has a bit of edge of course but is a bit more put together and pretty.

A play suit might not be the most practical, but its a no brainer if you want a simple put together look. This one with the cut out detail would look so good dressed down or dressed up.

As I was going for a bit more of a girly look with this one so I thought feck it lets go all out! I saw this coral/peach “leather” jacket and thought oooo so not me but Fun, so i added it! Of course once I saw this super cute rose gold backpack that HAD to go with an outfit so that was added too. The boots and hat give it that bohemian sorta look that looks great at festivals (not to mention the practicality of the hat if it rains). As I had so much going on with the hat and boots I didn’t want to go o.t.t with the other accessorise so I went with a layered bracelet and cuff earring.



I hope this blog post gives you a bit of insight into my style. I’ve been struggling since I moved here to Jersey with my weight and therefore my style so over the next while you might see some more post like this, and maybe in 2018 you might see some more haul try ons on my youtube and look books here on my blog.

If you liked this post and what me to do more like it let me know. Sarah xo.


Get to know me… ||


As its a new year and after reading the lovely Just My Look’s blog post “50 Facts About Me!”, I decided it would be a really nice idea.

I was nominated for a UK Blog Award and thought it would be great to get this up, but it took a little longer than expected. The last couple of months have been really stressful and my anxiety has been up the wazoo, but now I’m ready to get back into this and am feeling so much better. 

I’ve been blogging for a long time now, but have never done one of these types of post. I think I might have done one on my YouTube…

I don’t work well with thinking up questions or anything like that so I googled, get to know me tag, and went for the 1st image. So here we go!

1. Full name.

2. Zodiac sign.


3. 3 Fears

Spiders, being taken away by the men in white coats, and never owning my own home. (in no particular order)

5. My best friend

I should probably say Jarek, but I think I have to say my oldest friend Elaine!

6. Last song I listened to

Ok so lets keep in mind its Christmas time now!!! Jingle Bells by Frank Sinatra (I’m listening to Christmas FM)

7. 4 Turn ons

I like a Tall man!! I truly believe that your eyes are the window to your soul, so eyes, and someone I can be an odd ball/myself with, I love a bit of Craic and the bants so this is a massive turn on for me!

8. 4 turn offs

Someone cocky, two faced, full of self importance, and selfish.

9. What colour underwear am I wearing right now.

I’m currently bra free as I’m in my PJs and my pants are black with a largish pink rose patten.

10. How many tattoos / piercings I Have.

I have my ears pierced once, but I think I’d like to get this done again! I did have my belly button done but it has closed up, and Ive no tattoos.

11. The reason why i started Blogging.

I was having a hard time in the job I was working in and just needed an outlet really. I just needed something for me!

I actually feel a bit anxious, sometimes its just hard to shake.

13. Something I really, really want.

A Cartier watch

14. My current relationship status.

In a LONG term relationship

15. Meaning behind my URL.

I love everything that glitters so I always knew I wanted a website to sell my jewellery so Magpie just felt right, but when I decided to start a blog it didn’t seem right. If I see a magpie alone I panic and always look for its other half and one day I just thought “thats what I’ll do, I’ll double up the Magpie” and so was born, in my head anyway.

16. My favourute movie(s)

I love the original Footloose, but anything with Fred Astaire in it and I’m set to be a couch potato.

17. My favourite song(s)

I actually don’t think I have one… There are loads I like, but my fav song has to be something special to me. I will add this to my New Years Resolutions! 

18. My Favourite band.

My all time favourite would have to be Coldplay, but I’m loving The Weeknd at the moment!

19. 3 Things that upset me

A lot actually. I’m highly sensitive so I take many things personally. But the TOP 3  Being lied to, backstabbing and people only thinking of themselves, not really thinking of others circumstances.

20. 3 things that make me happy.

Cupcakes, I love shopping, and just cuddling up with Jarek watching a movie.

21. What I find attractive in other people.

I thought this question was similar to number 7…

22. Someone I miss.

This might seem really odd, but I miss my dog Ted, he was my best friend, and a little shit! 😉 I think about him at least once a day. I can’t say that for anyone else I’ve lost.

23. Someone I love.

I need to learn how to love myself more!

24. My relationship with my parents.

I do not speak to my father, and I get on well with my mother.

25. My favourite holiday.

I Love Christmas the most I think, I can’t wait till we find a new apartment and I can film more cookery stuff and decoration stuff!!

I’m not sure I have one yet, but I shall make it one of my 2017 new years resolutions to connect more with the blogging community.

27. A blogger that I’d date.

I dont actually follow many male bloggers, now that I think of it, but I do have quite the girl crush on Anna from The Anna Edit.

28. A confession

I bought my sister a selection box for her stocking and I ate it… oops!

29. 3 Things that annoy me easily.

Because of the type of anxiety I have I find many things very stressful and annoying, BUT when people don’t listen, when the cartons for recycling are not washed out and not even put in recycling and just left on the side ( like is it that hard to put it in the fucking bin?? Is it?!), and double standards, I think we are all culprits of this, but I hate it! 

30. My Favourite animal(s).

I love lots of animals!! I have a whole board on my Pinterest dedicated to them. I do like foxes though.

31. My Pets.

Sadly I have none at the moment. Ted was my first dog, but I always wish I got him when I was younger as I went away for college and moved to London soon after and I feel like I abandoned him! I’ve also had a few fish in my day.

32. One thing I lied about.

I lie everyday to myself about how much chocolate I’ve eaten.

33. Something that’s currently worrying you.

Finding somewhere to live here in Jersey CI is very difficult, and stressful! I’ve been worrying about that since we moved here really…

34. An embarrassing moment.

My whole life is an embarrassing moment!

35. Where I work.

I work in a luxury Jewellers where I sell high value jewellery and watches. I love it! I also do their social media which is great!

36. Something that’s constantly on my mind.

Am I worth loving. I’m not sure why or how this feeling of worthlessness crept into my soul, but for as long as I can remember I have felt this way.

37. 3 Habits I have.

A. Every morning after I get up and Jarek is out of our room, I have to make the bed in a certain way.

38. My future goals.

In my personal life I’d like to move forward with Jarek and hopefully get engaged.

At work I hope to do JET 2 and move onto CAD design.

With my blog I would like to have a little following / community where we can chat and vent and ask any and every question. A safe place for us to share ideas!

39. Something I fantasise about.

I’ve always felt very weak! I often wish I had made ninja skills.
