THIS space however is going to be dedicated to the fact that I really do love beautiful things and I plan to show style wherever it's seen - from fashion, to accessories, heck even food or art, whatever strikes as "something pretty". I hope you like it, and please do comment if you have views, advice or general thoughts and love! No haters please.
So to start -
I have a serious love affair with accessories. Every since I first started being given pocket money as a child in Trinidad (we had a whole chore checklist, good girl markers, and our mother even made us chequebooks so that we could learn to "draw out" our earned funds!), I remember most weekends going to the mall to buy earrings. Two or three pairs at a time ideally. I loved the jingly-jangly feel of them against my neck, and I now have a little tick, where I give a little shake of my head like a pony, just to check I can feel my earrings are still there. It may look slightly odd, but habit is a hard thing to break.
My mother has always worn a clutch of silver bracelets on her arm, and we always knew that she was coming by the clinking noise they would make as she approached. She thinks it probably saved us many a telling off, but to be honest we didn't really take advantage of the warning sound to be very naughty!
So this will certainly not be the only time I talk about accessories! Today though, just earrings, to start bring back to life Mama Loves...
