My boyfriend got me this for Valentine’s Day last year, and now, three weeks away from Valentine’s Day this year, I’m just getting around to posting it.

thomas sabo bronco pendant.


I bought this yesterday from a mall in Auckland, but I’ve been eyeing it up for months. Yesterday, we headed to one mall to do our boxing day shopping and I did pretty well. The boyfriend was disappointed that he didn’t get anything, though, so I suggested we call in at another mall on the way home and buy him some board games with his Christmas moneys. He liked the idea, so we did.

The jeweller there had a sale on – everything on display was half price for one day only. And as luck would have it, this beautiful pendant was on display. I bought it.

I come from a rodeo family, and I suppose that’s why this pendant appealed to me. Apart from that, though, it’s extraordinarily detailed and satisfyingly heavy. Sterling silver, like all of the Thomas Sabo pieces.

I received the loveliest gift today from the loveliest man, and I thought I’d post it here for the interwebs to admire.

It’s by Karen Walker, from her new range, and it is absolutely gorgeous. I am obsessed, and will be wearing it all the time from here on in. Love. I am the luckiest girl alive.

I am so in love with this. My boyfriend got it for me for … my birthday, I believe. He’d got me another Karen Walker for Valentine’s Day, which I do wear more. It’s a fighter plane, and it’s beautiful, and I will post it soon.

This one appealed to me as I grew up in a yachting family and so I feel like it’s a little bit symbolic. Plus, it’s gorgeous.

Karen Walker is a total student jeweller. I see so many of her pieces walking around uni. They’re relatively affordable and they make a huge statement. I find that I either love or hate each piece she makes. Some of them look really amateur and/or fashion student (though I’ve seen people wearing them, so it must be a matter of taste), whereas others, like this, look polished and o so stylish.

These are available from Walker and Hall in New Zealand, possibly the Karen Walker website as well, though I haven’t checked.

Not sure about availability overseas. KW displays her clothes at New York Fashion Week though, so presumably there’s some kind of availability in the States.

My wonderful boyfriend got me this for our one year anniversary. I think it’s beautiful. I generally only wear silver jewellery, I’m not a huge fan of gold. And this, to me, was one of the most gorgeous things he could have got me! It’s by Stolen Girlfriends Club, a group of designers (or possibly a pair) from New Zealand – which makes it even cooler. Local designers are awesome.

I definitely identify with it. I’m such an absolute girly girl.
