This is a huge surprise. Links of London is now an advertiser in my blog. Yay! Those of you who’ve been following/reading me know that I have a “thing” for Links of London. I wear a Sweetie bracelet everyday together with a sterling silver friendship bracelet. I’m happy Links is here in my site.
Stella received her own Sweetie bracelet during her Christening. It was a gift from her godfather Trevor, my brother in law. Now my sister is helping me build her charm bracelet. There’s a starfish, because “star” is “stella.” And there’s a little daisy too, daisy means “margarita.” The heart came together with the bracelet.
Well, this is old news. But I thought of posting it here, to report to you that the earrings of Kate Middleton in the photo below are still sold out. (EDIT: Apparently not really sold out, keep on reading).
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s official engagement portrait by Mario Testino. She wore these simple Links of London earrings. They’ve now become iconic pieces; and there’s a waiting list for them around the world. They are called Hope Egg Earrings, an important symbol in Russian culture, traditionally given for birthdays, festivals, etc. The egg represents hope and new life.
Hope Egg earrings with White Topaz. This is the exact identical pair worn by Kate Middleton. Made of sterling silver and white topaz. If you want to put yourself on the waiting list just click on the photo. (EDIT: I just clicked on the photo and they have the earrings in stock right now!)

Like this duck charm. The cutest inside joke between Ingrid and me. We both have this as a memento from our last trip to Hong Kong.
Vintage camera charm. Patrick got this charm for me. I’m still in the process of collecting more charms for my charm bracelet.
Friendship Bracelet in navy and pink. Mine was black and baby pink. I recommend getting darker colour thread because just like a real friendship bracelet, this has tendency to get dirty – which is exactly makes it more charming.
