WHEN IT GETS COLD, GRAB (AND GIVE) SOME GOLD

December, * almost * winter. We’re a few days from kissing Fall and its earth tones away and welcoming the brightest season!

I personally adore December; for me, It’s amazing how this month is able to materialise this duality of being one of the coldest and yet the warmest periods of the year: let the temperature drop and our Christmasy joy begin to rise! Warm and fuzzy feelings start to outburst our pretty little hearts and it is visible through our eyes, our smiles, and of course, our actions. We suddenly feel nostalgic for family and friends, we sigh at the thought of our parents and brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, united around the evergreen Christmas tree, we want to hold and be held in order to express our love and support. And we also like to hold and be held because, man, it’s getting freaking cold.

Cold. Cold. Cold.

Now, most people would grab a scarf in order to keep their necks protected from the freezing breeze, aren’t I right? But let me tell you a secret: when it gets cold, grab some gold. No, seriously, because eventually that scarf will go away and what will you have left? A sad empty chest. My suggestion? A golden necklace to match your heart. The lights on the trees aren’t the only ones meant to be shining this season, you know?

I have a strong inclination towards heavy necklaces: huge statements, but I do understand some others prefer lighter details and well, I included some of those too. Because people.

Haha.

Here, my favourite trends for Golden Necklaces this season:

Did you like them? What’s your favourite? And here’s an idea, now that we’re grabbing gold, how about giving some away? Donate to your favourite cause, whether it is health or kids or nature or animals, more specifically. Are you renewing your closet? Give those clothes away! Don’t know where to? No problem! Sell them and donate! And what about gifts. Oh, gifts. For every new item, gift another from your belongings (To someone who really needs it, not your equally as hoarder bff).

For an actually small percentage of us, Christmas is a precious period full of joy, delicious meals and warm homes. We’re privileged. Lots of people don’t share these seasonal benefits. Let’s spread the love. When it gets cold, grab and give some gold. 

All the love, all the best,
