You know that feeling when you want to kick yourself for doing something so stupid that you deserve the roundhouse kick you want to give yourself? Well, that’s how I felt this week…

I wish that it was a joke, but seriously I dropped a sterling silver ear cuff I bought from Hallo Jane into the garden below… because I got distracted while opening the packet… and their big puppy ate it. I’m concerned for the puppy but I’m also really upset with myself. I’m more upset with myself to be honest.

… you just can’t make this stuff up!

Let me show you what I did manage to buy during the Hallo Jane sale (that wasn’t eaten by the dog).

I have been collecting jewellery pieces since forever, but this year I’ve been feeling like adding more South African pieces in my collection. PS, I am not saying I’m buying designer pieces, but rather that I buy tiny pieces of wearable art.

It’s should be a surprise that I almost always wear a cowrie shell – since I love the ocean. The shell may be dangling from my ears, around my neck or even on my finger. However, I also like to wear something from my mom’s collection – even if it was something I brought back from my travels for her.

Lesson from this page of my life…

Sit down, sit still and do one damn thing at a time – ok!
