Beautiful Words


If there's one thing I love, it's something personalised. There's just something about owning something that has a special meaning to you and you alone. Even if someone chose the same thing, it would never compare to your original choice, as their reasoning will always be different. 

For me, a personalised piece of jewellery is almost like a tattoo. It's something that can be worn all the time and eventually becomes a part of you and your daily routine. I also love explaining personalisations to people, and I love hearing people's stories behind their choices! 

So when the lovely people at Under the Rose got in touch and offered to send me something from their website, I chose their stunning Silver Circle Quote Pendant which immediately caught my eye as soon as I saw it, mainly because you have the option of having quite a long quote on it. 

The quote I chose to be engraved is one of my all time favourites, by the goddess herself, Audrey Hepburn;

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." 

Necklace - C/O Under The Rose

The quote pretty much sums up everything I adore about Audrey Hepburn. She was always the most beautiful person, not only on the outside but on the inside as well. If I could aspire to be half the woman she was, then I would be a happy gal! 

The necklace itself is absolutely beautiful and I adore the fact that it has a toggle clasp, as I've never owned a necklace with one of these before! The silver is thick and gorgeously shiny when polished. I just know I'm going to get so much wear out of it, as it's such a versatile piece. 

Also, little side note, I have a new camera! All the photos you see in this post were taken on my brand new Olympus Pen E-PL8 and oh my good golly gosh I am in love! That depth of field though...

You will definitely be seeing an improvement on my photography both here and over on my Instagram, so keep a look out! 

Let me know in the comments if you have any personalised items, jewellery or otherwise, and what you had written on them! I'd love to hear your stories.
