For the love of shine

Hi, my name is Erica and I’m a jewellery junkie. Bracelets, rings, necklaces, bangles, earrings, pretty much anything shiny. Like a crow. I’m ok with it, in fact, I’m proud of it. Nothing makes me happier than layering some playful wrist candy before I head out for my day of exciting adventures. Usually I’m training so much that lots of bangles aren’t practical, but yesterday was the most sacred of all days….SISTER DAY!! For the lovely miss Alana and I, sister day is very cherished time for us, we paint our nails, get dressed up, take photos in gardens, sing silly songs, watch our favorite shows, throw paint at eachother, pretty much just whatever we feel like! Yesterday, we did many of those things…and I put on some shiny bracelets!!

My lovely sister does such great work, doesn’t she!! Check out what she does on her blog: Dream Create.

I particularly love wearing jewellery that has specific meaning to me, things that have a story or came from somewhere or someone important to me. The bracelets I’m wearing, from left to right; silver bangle, made by my mom; silver wire horseshoe charm bracelet, from a Disney merchandise store in Animal Kingdom; another silver mom-made bangle; red and rhinestone bracelet, made by my sister: silver feather bangle, another Disney find; ‘all good things are wild and free’ bracelet, etsy shop mstarbuck, and finally, white bead gold horseshoe charm, Ettika jewellery!

You might remember a few weeks ago I did a photo shoot with the lovely Natasha Enquist and super talented photographer Darren Stone, well I got a few more images sent to me from the shoot, and looking at them just makes me so happy! We had such a great time, and now that Natasha is in Berlin, and soon I’ll be back in the US, it’s so nice to have some fun photos to enjoy that remind me of all the fun times we had!! Check them out!!

Still cold!

So today my sister and I had an adventure. In case you are not aware, Alana is a magical and very talented graphic designer. You can check out her work here . In case you’ve never been relate to a graphic designer before, its pretty awesome. She pretty much has brilliant ideas and tells me to do things and takes pictures and video of me doing those things. Today we made a triathlon video. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but it’s going to be so cool. It definitely involved me jumping into Thetis Lake and swimming around. Let me tell you, it was so so cold. But worth it in the end. So I will have some stills and footage to share at some point in the future as soon as editing is done! Very exciting stuff.
Also, it’s April now, which means I need to get serious or I’m going to drown when I try to race. Cranking the running up to 3 a week, two short ones and one long one. Obviously right now they’re all 10ks and then soon the third one will start being longer. Yay! So much fun! One of my friends who is running Tough Mudder with me has been training lots with me so he’s my new running companion. It’s good to have friends!!

Have a magical day!!
