2016! I am definitely looking forward to the brand new year. It has me thinking about resolutions, big and small, and one in particular that I actually made back in early December. It isn’t about reconnecting with my meditation practice (though I do need to do that immediately!). No, the one I am thinking about mostly is this one: I have decided to embrace big earrings for day. Big, and fancy. Why not!? I feel like the things that we reserve for special occasions are actually meant to be enjoyed in the most quotidian of ways. There isn’t any good reason not to. Honestly, I cannot think of one reason to “save” one’s beautiful treasures for only certain occasions. Enjoy them! Wear them to lunch with a friend, or to anyplace at all. I promise it will elevate the experience of every single thing. Madrid Earrings; Emerald, Pearl + Diamonds Double Pear Pear Earrings, Seven Seas Pearl + Diamond Ring
Spanish Armada Earrings; Black Diamonds + Pink Sapphires
Josephine Earrings; Rose Cut Blue Sapphire + Grey Diamonds
Another thing I am contemplating for the new year is which of these delicious new limited edition Liberty of London Art Silk prints I would like for a new Asteria dressing gown. Hmmmm….
They are all so beautiful that I have struggled with making a decision. I think I’ll go with Poppyseed Dream, which I love as much for the exotic print as I do for the name.
Of course, there are more pressing things to contemplate for the new year ahead. To face the future with my best foot forward, I am resolving to embrace a few principles:
Be more spontaneous, for one.
Take more advantage of the galleries and museums of our fair city.
Spend more time with friends and family.
And finally, to perfect the perfect brownie recipe that I’ve been tinkering with for a few months. I’ll share it when it’s ready…stay tuned!
