This Valentine's Day I decided to do something a little bit different. I decided to step away from the pre-conceived notion that one is surprised with roses, chocolates, stuffed animals and/or romantic dinners by their significant other. Nope. Not me. Not this year. I decided that I was going to flip Valentine's Day on its head. On the 14th of February 2017, I finally realised that it was time to treat. yo. self. I went straight to the top of my wishlist and instead of spending hours umming and ahhing over the pieces sitting in my Michael Hill online shopping cart, I committed (pun intended).
It's a well known fact that I am a fiend for a gold necklace. On any given day, I can be found sporting upwards of six at once. So it really comes as no surprise that I decided I wanted to adorn myself in just one more. Why the heck not? World, meet the latest addition to the neck party, St Christopher. Suspended by the finest gold chain, he drapes himself proudly among the usual tangle that sits across my décolletage.
On the topic of obsessions, I also found myself drawn to a 10ct Gold Signet Ring that I've probably lusted over since the age of nine. Yes, it's taken me nearly 16 years but I finally decided that I needed it to be mine. Zero regrets. Just all of the gold.
