Frends Rose Gold ‘Layla’ Headphones Review

Hey guys! I was recently brainstorming ideas for blog posts, and I realised that I’ve had my Frends headphones for so long, and I’ve never given them a full review. So today I thought it’s about time I rectified that, so I’m going to take you through what I think of this product.

The aesthetic. Let’s be honest, these headphones really are quite gorgeous, particularly perfect for youtubers/bloggers, whereby you can constantly take pictures of them, wearing them, and just in general talk about how fabulous they are. In the very words of Frends, “Rose gold delivers a soft, warm glow whilst creating a sense of opulence and romance. Paired with supple white leather, this headphone is the portrait of femininity.”

They are also designed not only with femininity in mind, but the Layla headphones are significantly smaller than the Taylor ones, as these are designed with jewellery in mind. The fact that the headphones are so small means that they can be worn comfortably over the ear, while staying away from the lobes, so you can also wear earrings.

I also think that the fact you can personalise every set is a fun pro to have when it comes to headphones. You can choose from a range of different caps to change up the look as often as you want, it’s like having 5 headphone sets in 1!

The portability. Not only are these headphones very pretty, but they are also perfect for use on the go, as they fold away into a very compact little bag, so they’re not bulky and in the way like most overhead headphones can be.IMG_1889The sound. Ok, so now onto the actual make-or-break of headphones, the quality of the sound. Now after a long and torrid affair with all types of headphones, in ears, overhead, cheap and expensive, I’ve learned what to expect from certain headphones. So when I test out a new pair of headphones, I can really hear the difference.

With cheap headphones, you tend to get a reasonably monotone, tinny sound. You’ll also hear the occasional crackle, and usually the cable is incredibly weak and will break within a couple of days.

That’s why these headphones are my favourite, and have been for over a year now. They are obviously an expensive investment, but I think that they are more than worth it. In my eyes, instead of buying 12 cheap sets over the past year, I’ve saved my money by investing in these. These provide a premium, full and unfiltered sound. They aren’t the bass-iest of all of the headphones I’ve tried, but they definitely provide a much fuller, quality sound.

The cable itself is also similar to a rope cable, and the connecting jack is at a right angle, meaning that it isn’t under a great deal of pressure when it’s in your bag or pocket, and thus at a much lower risk of breaking/being damaged.

Cons

Honestly, the only con I can think of for these headphones is the price, not everyone can, or wants to spend this amount of money on a pair of headphones. Other than the price, I can see no faults or drawbacks to this product.


That’s it for my Layla headphones review, let me know if you’ve tried these headphones, or if you’ve got them!

My Everyday Jewellery

Now I do have to start this post out by saying this is not all jewellery that I wear everyday, I will usually wear a maximum of 2 or three pieces at one time, not all of these!

I love really dainty pieces of jewellery, and I’ve got a fair few pieces that I absolutely adore, so today I thought I’d share my favourites with you!

My most worn colour of jewellery altogether is silver, I find it goes with a lot more colours that I like to wear, and it’s quite simple and classic. When I was younger I would love big chunky necklaces, but now I prefer much smaller and delicate chains with simple charms. I also quite like my jewellery to be unique and personal, hence why a lot of what I have is personalised or unusual.

But I do like to switch up my jewellery from silver all of the time, so lately I’ve been trying to acquire more gold pieces (rose gold is actually my favourite!) my favourites include this one with a few tiny gold circles, and this cat one with a pearl and pink gem from Born Pretty!

I usually exclusively wear studs, in fact the only drop earrings I like to wear are these really pretty silver ones with an opal-looking pink stone. My most worn earrings are definitely these pearl ones, and my second most worn is tied with the simple diamond pair and this gorgeous crescent moon pair; moon jewellery slowly becoming a speciality of mine.

my everyday jewellery (5)Bracelet

I do have a few favourite bracelets, but I wanted to feature this one because it means quite a lot to me, and I think it’s a really lovely unique design. It’s so tiny and delicate that it can be worn alone as a tiny detail, or with more bracelets and it isn’t too much.

I know that I’ve already covered necklaces, but I had to put my moon ones in a category of their own because they are simply too beautiful. I don’t think I’ll ever see a moon necklace and stop myself from buying it because I “already have 15”. That’s just silly talk.

my everyday jewellery (7)Rings

Surprise surprise, the majority of my favourite rings are silver. Most of my rings were gifts, so I am quite sentimental about them. And again, when I was younger I’d be drawn to oversized and really colourful rings, but now I prefer really small ones, because that way I can get away with wearing more jewellery and not feeling like it has taken over my outfit.

my everyday jewellery (8)Watch

My watch is a rose-gold and mother of pearl wonder. I got it for Christmas a year ago, and I have never loved a watch so much. I’ve had a lot of bulky orange watches over the years (because orange is my favourite colour) but when I got this one I fell in love with the beauty of it.


That’s it for jewellery that I like to wear regularly, do you have a favourite item of jewellery? Let me know in the comments!
