Anyone who knows me knows about my infatuation with jewelry. And not the fancy fine jewelry (maybe that will come one day). I'm enamored by gaudy costume jewelry. While I love fashion, I believe your accessories can make or break your outfit. It can help you portray what you're feeling...quirky, colorful, refined...any piece of jewelry can help you express yourself.
To me, jewelry has to speak to me. A few of my favorite things: chunky necklaces, sparkles, plastic and beads....wait who am I kidding, I do not discriminate. :) While in London last week, I really did not have any time to shop. But when I did, I made sure to visit the accessory section of the shops I was in. I found a few necklaces from River Island and Primark. Here were my purchases:
I also brought a bag of jewelry with me from the states (I always have an abundance of versatile pieces, and my friends never have to worry about not being accessorized). Here is a (not so great) picture of the necklace I wore at the rehearsal dinner in London. I had gotten it at the Baublebar in Nordstrom.
Here is the website in case you were interested. It's at a great price and so fun!
And in case you are wondering where we dined for the rehearsal dinner, I have an amazing recommendation if you are ever in London. We went to a place called "Ceviche", which is a Peruvian restaurant (the brides family is from Peru). It is located in Soho.
We arrived and immediately ordered a round of Pisco Sours (which is Pisco Quebranta, lime, egg whites, sugar syrup, and Peruvian Chuncho Bitters). I've never had anything like it but it was AMAZING.
Our food was amazing as well. The portions were tapa-like, but we were never out of food. It actually kept coming and coming, and it was all so amazing that many of us left with stomach aches and in need of tums.
We dined on Cancha, Sakura Manu, Ceviche, and Lengua. That was probably about 1/4 of what we actually got, but those were my favorites. When I am back in London I will definitely be going here. Actually, I anticipate going to Peru before I go back to London, so I am sure the motherland of ceviche will not disappoint me. Cheers to being a fearless eater ❤
