Heads down, prayers up, do work. AND REST. That's my mantra. And when you live in the city that is New York, it's a must. Lord knows I [heart] NY (I have the tee to prove it), the energy, the pace, the magic, the constant peppering in the air of knowing that you're surrounded by something special, something that's poignant and intangible. Dare I say at the risk of sounding corny, it's magical.
So what does all that have to do with these heart-shaped silver studs. Well 1) they're lovely so that's reason enough in my book (or blog). And what's a more love(ly) piece of jewelry? 2) They were a birthday gift from a friend from Lesotho, gifted to me on my birthday celebrated at a French restaurant in Botswana last year. They came endowed in love. As much as I get energized by my dirty, gorgeous, sexy city, I also get weighed down by it (um.. is that Newton's third law or something?). Surrounding yourself with love and giving love is imperative and these little silver gems serve a gentle reminder for my Type A tendencies of a Type B soul.
They also carry a beautiful elegance to them that even with only a crisp, white shirt you still look sophisticated. Warning: if you do step out your front door, put on some pants (not pictured above!).
In the meantime, prayers up, do work and rest.
