The Royal Collection Treasures


Introduction – The Royal Collection

One of the worlds greatest picture collections is found in this book, “The Royal Collection Treasures” involving masterpieces, splendours of the decorative arts, for example, I will touch on different sections such as furniture, or sculptures. It is not just only a collection, but a collection on collections which contain works of art.

I love the categories that I am going to share with you. It involves drawings, paintings, books, gems, tapestries, silver, porcelain, etc.

Surprisingly, the book says it is wholly unlike a museum collection which I thought that I would! But the British National Collections selectively provide a wide-ranging depiction of the arts and sciences with a specific purpose of showing the public what there is in an educating way.

Victoria & Albert Museum Collection – Cupid’s arrow necklace


From the Victoria and Albert Museum comes the EXCLUSIVE Inspired! Collection.

Showcasing a collection of timeless designer and fine jewellery inspired by the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

The V & A is home to more than 5 million jaw dropping artefacts from the world’s wealthiest cultures and its significant collections have inspired and educated for more than 150 years.

You can read about the history here.

The collection traces from Byzantine times to the modern day and is uniquely different to all other jewellery collections.

This fine particular piece of jewellery caught my eye in Edgecombs Jewellers.

I didn’t particularly like it in the box, but when I tried it on it looked so elegant!!!!

Great Goodies


I had so much fun shopping in Perth today and spent the day in Garden City, Booragoon and Midland Gate. 

As you know I am a shopaholic….. Becky Bloomwood could be my ficticious name. But Surprisingly I didn’t buy ANY clothes!!! 

Two days ago I bought a fluffy black warm jacket from Valleygirl for only $15!!!! Bargain!!!! I absolutely love it and is perfect for the coming Winter. 

Coffee and Dymocks was my first stop……!!!! I eyed out a book called “The House in Quill Court” by Charlotte Betts. It looks like an amazing story based in Kent and London in the year of 1813 and I cannot wait to read it!!!!!!! 

I then walked through the shopping centre and walked through Target and picked up the “Winters Tale” DVD and another book, “The Chosen Queen” by Joanna Courtney for only $10!. So, TWO books!!!! 

I was so happy that I could pick up a few things from Priceline Pharmacy that I can not get in Merredin as there is no Priceline. There is a pharmacy here, but it is very limited. 

For some pampering I bought LUX Body Wash with Peach and Orange Blossom – so luxurious and is silky on the skin. It was only $3 for HALF price!!!! 

Plus some L’Oreal rejuvenating makeup wipes for $8.99 and Neutrogena Naturals Cleanser which had Peruvian Tara Seed and is $15. I just used this and it is very smooth and silky and moisturising. It feels excellent on the skin!!!! 


To top off the day I went to Sanity and bought a Royal Homes and Gardens Collection Set of three DVDS which includes “A Tour of Highgrove with HRH the Prince of Wales and Alan Titchmarsh”, “Royal Restoration of Dumfries House” and “Britains Botanic Gardens”…..

I got home, had a tea and put on the first one and it is very informative on Prince Charles personal retreat and family home. The gardens are just enchanting and magical, it makes you want to book a flight and visit as soon as possible!!!! ❤️



To top off the day EVEN MORE, I found a gem of a piece. The reason why I bought this $35 Swarovski Crystal ring from Lovisa is because it looks like a “replica” of Princess Diana’s ring that Kate Middleton now wears!!!! 

I am STOKED!!!!! I couldn’t be more happier…… 



I have had an exciting day, and am completely estatic with all my purchases!!!!!! I think the ring has to be my favourite. I feel like “Kate” hehehe and am excited to devour one of the novels tonight! 

Which goodie do you like best? 

Do you have a favourite purchase of late?
