hearts hearts

When my sister and I were young, my mother would put hearts or stars on the things that we owned.
Our names were too similar so she assigned me a star and my sister a heart, instead of our names. Sometimes I feel that this is why she became more of a caring person. 

It was now time to make a heart that was feminine but not too girly, not too cute but stylized.
Something that people who like hearts can wear at any age.

The 18k gold has a matte finish which gives a nice glow, the oxidized curl inside the heart give a sharpness to the heart and an tiny diamond for a little sparkle.

Usually I wear it with the blackened silver chain, as you see in the photo. When I want to feel more golden, sometimes I do, when I go on meetings or when I know there are more grown ups I have to meet, then I change it out with a gold chain, and the look really changes.

So, even though I really like stars more than hearts, I wear this heart time to time. Does it make me more of a caring person...... working on that!

something warm

It is still very cold in Tokyo and what is great for cold seasons is something warm and sweet. A little bit of alcohol will help you warm up.

Tonight I had a cup of Irish Coffee. 
There is a place that is right by the train station that is nearest to me and it is always nice to warm up before you ride your bike back to the house.
