the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Going a bit more delicate

Kristen Robison of Minoux Jewelry sent me this handcrafted sterling silver necklace from her collection thinking it would compliment my new short hairdo. And I’m so glad that she did because I haven’t been able to wear any of my old earrings because, well, with my hair this way it just screams EARRIIING!!! (Imagine that being sung by Oprah.)

I love the delicate feeling of this necklace, and it’s inspired me to look for and add more necklaces to my collection of jewelry. It’s like a whole new world of accessorizing has been opened up. I expect a call from my mom any second going, how many times have I told you to put on a necklace! Well, Mom, your tom-boy is growing up.
