IMG_0321Why do we wear jewelry? Why do we decorate our bodies with tattoos? Why do we dye our
hair? It’s all part of expressing our individuality. But that desire to express ourselves must come from a place of self-confidence, in my opinion. When I was 25 years old, something clicked and I realized that, despite the parts of my body that I didn’t like or had issue with, as a package, I was enough. I was great. I was sexy. I decided to start looking at myself as a glorious package, as a whole, and not focus on the parts that I found less than “flattering”. Because despite our best efforts to accept and celebrate our bodies in an increasingly body positive culture, we are female and inevitably we are going to find areas or things
about ourselves to criticize. And that’s just real. But the important thing is to be fair to yourself and look at yourself as a perfectly imperfect package.

I decided then to get a tattoo. Something abstract that represented to me, and me alone, that my body was worth “decorating”. And that’s how I have lived my life since then.

Jewelry, to me, is an extension of that philosophy. I wouldn’t decorate something I didn’t appreciate. So I decorate ME as a way of celebrating ME. And whether it’s jewelry or how you style your hair, or the expensive lingerie you wear underneath, it’s important to invest in, and celebrate YOU.

This Teardrop Pendant in 10t yellow, white and rose gold from Michael Hill is a way for me to recognize that I am worthy, that I am beautiful, and will therefore be adorned in beauty.
Michael Hill jewellers was founded in 1979 with a promise to craft distinct and appealing jewellery. They are one of very few jewellery retailers that have an in-house team of master craftsmen – dedicated to creating future heirlooms and keepsakes while continuously perfecting their craft.

From a customer experience perspective, the packaging is so important and I love the beautiful purple box with brown satin ribbon that my pendant arrived in.

Wearing it made me feel special, and beautiful. I chose the tri-colored gold design because it compliments my wedding ring, which is so special to me. I like the fact that dual or tri-colored jewelry can be worn with either silver or gold thereby making it more versatile.


Michael Hill offers a vast selection of jewelry pieces in all price ranges. Their necklaces and pendant are particularly tempting, and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, their Most Loved selection is definitely worth a gander, with pieces starting at CDA $29.

Here are some of my favs…

Unfortunately I did not find any rings for women above a size 8 so they are not for chubby fingers, but Michael Hill offers an extensive array of jewelry for all our other parts.
