Merci beaucoup mon ami!


Thank you

I am so grateful for your sweet words & support!

I would also love to thank Tina of Luphia Loves... and Shlomit Ofir: a few weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of Tina's amazing weekly giveaway draws. As such, I got to pick any pair of earrings from Shlomit Ofir's Etsy store, which was no easy feat, as she has so many beautiful earrings to pick from (and I see there have been a few additions from when I picked mine)! This young designer from Tel Aviv, has a beautiful collection of jewellery available in her store, and I'm now incredibly tempted by quite a few necklaces...

My pick were these
beautiful 'golden shimmer wire wrapped drop earrings'. I had almost forgotten about it, until today, when I received a slip in my mailbox saying I had missed a package. The Israeli stamps on the package had me even more excited. Inside, beautifully packaged, were my new beautiful earrings:

I am usually very selective when it comes to earrings, and don't often wear gold-toned jewellery, but I couldn't resist this elegant, geometric & simple design...They are two wire wrapped gold plated drops with a shimmering finish, hanging from gold plated anti-allergic ear wire. A small Nepherite stone bead, in a very light shade of mint green, hangs in the middle of each. Beautiful!

Can't wait to wear these!

  4. I can't believe anyone would say your style is "hideous". Silly them.

    Love your new dress and the earrings are divine.

  5. What sort of a moron would say your style is hideous?!?!!? Don't take it personally. I'll bet you $1000000 that you think she wears hideous clothes too.

    I suppose that's the thing with blogging. Because you're exposing your taste to (potentially) millions of people, you're always going to get a few people who don't like it. And because they're not saying it to your face they feel they can be as rude as they like.

    ANYWAY we all think you're fabulous, so don't take one negative comment to heart!

    (PS gorgeous earrings!)

  19. Those earrings are lovely!
    Your style is anything but hideous. I would call it more classic and feminine. Evil commentors always like to attempt to ruin someone's day.

  31. Oh my, thank you SO SO much for your sweet words everyone! I felt petty for my acknowledging the other person's statement (I was just stumped at how unecessary it was, really), so I removed it.

    the divinitus - Yes! Love that cuff too!

    b-chic - thank you so much!
