The accessories I always get asked about.
When, a few months ago, I wrote about all my accessories and how I store them, I forgot to mention the ones I have on me.
In this post I want to talk about them, and what they mean to me.
Let’s begin with this dainty necklace.
The golden chain and the raw aquamarine stone were bought separately, whilst Felix and I were in Greece last year. It was our 4th year anniversary, and Felix noticed me eyeing this beauty from a small shop, so he offered to buy it as a gift. (We got the chain from a shop nearby).
I’m so glad he did, cause I love it, and I’m happy to always have it on.
Now, I always layer bracelets, and unfortunately two of my favourites broke with time – but I’m keeping them safe, hoping that one day I will actually remember to bring them to repair – and right now I have been wearing these 5 for a while.
The crystal one on the left is actually fake, I got it from ASOS ages ago and adds a nice touch to the combination, so it will stay till it breaks (hoping it won’t).
The golden one, the one with the little tag and the heart, is a baptism gift I received when I was very little, from a cousin of mine. I started wearing it when I was around 15, lost it when I was 19, and found it again earlier this year, luckily! I don’t even know how it happened, but I’m so happy to be wearing it again. The tag has my name written on it, although it’s so worn out that you can barely see it. Still my favourite bracelet to this day.
The middle one, once again, I’ve got myself from the ASOS website, although the brand was another one and I currently can’t remember the name of it. It wasn’t expensive at all, but I love to have little stones on me at all times, so I simply bought it and kept it on ever since.
The fourth one, is a rose gold bracelet I was given for my birthday last year by a dear friend of mine, which I don’t get to see very often. We grew up one road away from each other – I’m sure you all have that childhood friend that is part of your life as you grow up – and so this bracelet is very important to me. It’s by Stroili Oro by the way, so you may be able to get one yourself!
The final one, the little star, was gifted to me last Christmas by Felix’s sister, and I absolutely love how cute and dainty it is. I was very pleased to receive it, as it makes me feel just a bit closer to Felix family.
Onto rings, I used to wear “only” 2 till not long ago: in fact, this Christmas, Felix gave me the one with 7 diamonds. I love it! Please don’t be mistaken, it’s not an engagement ring, but an amazing gift still. It’s from Catbird, a NYC based website.
The eye one is from Mejuri, and it was sent to me to raise awareness about the campaign they were running, for women who live in third world countries. I got it back at the beginning of the year, and always kept it on both cause it’s beautiful, and because it’s a reminder to be grateful for what I have.
The final ring is the one I already wrote about, the first one Felix gave me, and it happened to be this year as well. I’m currently realising he has been spoiling me. 😉
I know he got it from an Etsy seller, but I’m afraid I can’t remember the specific brand.
But that’s all for this post! Do you have anything special you always keep on you?
