Striking Gold

 Two days off, I took two days off
Two days to do absolutely nothing!
Just what the Dr. ordered 


I didn't do anything today, and I feel much better for it.
I woke up early unfortunately but stayed in bed all morning with a coffee and a bit of crochet :)
I met a girl friend for lunch, but the rest of tonight is all about R&R.

I picked up this necklace yesterday from a thrift shop in the city. I go sometimes to look for random tea cups or plates to display my accessories or everyday items in, but found this instead.
I have been searching for a thick short gold necklace for a while, though I am looking for a chain style, this is quite a nice addition. I know some people think these look tacky, but I think it would be quite stunning if worn with the right mix of things.
I will try to do an OOTD with it in the future with my normal work wardrobe, where I think it can really shine.

  1. I really like the necklace! Don't think it looks tacky at all.
    I've never been thrifting. Which store would you suggest? :D Maybe I'll go take a look over winter break. Going to have so much free time...can't wait. Okay, my short study break is over haha :X

  4. It's funny how great it feels to do "nothing". :) I'm glad that you got a couple of days to just be.
    I've been interested in learning to crochet for some time. Do you have any recommendations for books or resources for a beginner?

  5. I purchased a few books for crochet, but honestly you can find almost everything online. Via youtube tutorials and free patterns online. So long as you know the pattern name, and google all the instruction short names you should be good, I plan to do a crochet post soon if you like, but honestly, I have yet to read any books i would highly recc to learn from, also on instagram there are so many inspirational feeds, it makes me want to create more daily

  9. Love the necklace! I browse thrift shops sometimes but very rarely do I find pieces that I fancy :( Your hair color is just the perfect natural dark brown shade and it makes me want to dye my hair XD I see you bought one of the new L'oreal eyeshadow palettes! I'm kind of surprised you did since I didn't know you liked drugstore eyeshadows! How is it?

  12. that you so much! i dye it @ home and just use asian hair dye lol, i dont like my hair when it's so black the dark brown is hard to tell unless im in the sun, but i love the little subtle lightness it has
    I said this on twitter but the L'oreal quad is a thumbs down!

  13. Thanks for the recommendations. I'm interested in that crochet post, but there's no rush. We don't want to undo the relaxation gold you came upon this week. :)
