Yes, it's Monday...do we say thank goodness it's Monday?
So many reasons to love Monday...and let me count the ways!
M of Misanthrope is hosting Fun Monday this week...yup, yup, I'm back with my Busy Monday stuff here!
M (no, not Bond's M, another M!) says --
Do you have a piece of jewelry or other item that holds great personal significance for you, and that you wear or keep with you every day? Show us a photo of your talisman, and tell us why it is so important to you.
I love this week's theme...so here goes;
My love for pearls...yes, like my friends always associate it with me! LOL
I love pearl accessory, they're classic, elegant, feminine and it's good to be minimalist, right?
The, my love for butterflies...
This is for a hair pin...I got this in one of my travel to Europe. I rarely use this though, it always makes my hair overdressed! LOL
But I love this!
Here are a mix of my pearls and butterfly necklaces and pendants and earrings collection. They may look familiar to some of you as I have showed this in one of our Fun Mondays when we featured our collections!
The one to the left of the red pendant is butterfly pendant on top of a heart. Both the butterfly and the heart has diamond studs (little ones!).
This one is a personal favorite of mine! the pendant is attached to the chain and you just need to slide it to adjust the length, something like that! I had this made when I was in Italy. I always wear this with my black turtle neck blouse.
So, this is me wearing the necklace! This was taken years ago, when I was working with a Software Development Company...
Please excuse my grumpy look, this is how Mariposa looks after being up for 48 hours! And you may discount the smile...I always smile...even when I'm pissed! LOL
This is another butterfly necklace and earrings! It's a set...I wear this for special occasions...
The ring is not part of the set, but it means a lot to me as it's a gift from an old friend when I was still in college.
And what I can't leave the house without?!
That butterfly ring from my friend...a snake ring...the tribal ring in my thumb...and the one on my left hand is a star and moon ring!
And while some people may frown at my hands, I don't care...I love it!
I have some other jewelry...the ones that makes the IT Guy shift from a bf role to bodyguard role when I'm wearing them, but I can't find my camera right now. I think I left it at IT Guy's car yesterday...so I hope you excuse me for my cheat today as all this photos has been blogged already...
Last year was a memorable year as it caused quite a damaged to my collection, I lost pair 2 pairs of earrings while at the mall!!!
But one thing I learn about buying jewelry, never get something that you can't afford to lose!
Last week, I did a quick review on Quantum of Solace and promise to make another one for Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. I did watch it Saturday evening with IT Guy and it was fun...fun...FUN!
The opening of the movie was a bitter sweet cute scene, with Alex being away from his Dad and calling his Dad while he was floating at the sea!
Then the fun began...starting with their air adventure! What a flight it was...
Then comes Alex reunion with the his family...
Ah, I want this only to be a quick review...so let me just say we had fun. IT Guy was laughing the whole time...obviously he loves it! I on the other hand...well, I had fun, but I'm not just as passionate about it as I am with James Bond and other action movies...I guess because I can relate more of guns than animal species?! (Yeah, you can laugh but I mean it!)
Monday will not be complete, so here is my take for Music Monday, I Just Don't Want to Be Lonely by Ronnie Dyson...this is my favorite version!
And what prompted me to post this song? Well, this was played in the cab on the way home while I was from the bank this morning...and it get stuck in my head!
produced album 'One Man Band' for the CBS imprint,
an album that included this song -
Just Don't Want To Be Lonely
(covered a year later by the group the Main Ingredient).
Took me long to find the theme for this week's Manic Monday, turns out, Mo, moved it to a new site...and since I've been away from Busy Monday...I just saw it now.
The theme for this week is SEASON! So this is my last minute...MANIC contribution!
“And you would accept the seasons of your heart just as you have always accepted that seasons pass over your fields and you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.” - Kahlil Gibran quotes
I wish everyone a Musical and Fun...Manic Monday!
