Ten Things I love

1. Pocketwatch Necklaces
I recently purchased a pocket watch necklace and I love it. There's something so timeless and classy about a pocketwatch. This beauty above is from Modcloth. It's too bad it's sold out.

2. Vintage Keys
Okay sooo story time. When I was a baby, one of the first gifts I ever got was a gold key pendant from my godmother. At the time, (I'm not entirely sure if this is some type of Dominican myth or not buttt) the key was said to stop nosebleeds which I used to have quite often as a child. I was later told that it had two purposes. It's first purpose was to stop my nosebleeds but its second purpose was to be given to the love of my life on the day of my wedding. I still have the key (obviously because I'm not married) but I think it gave keys a whole new meaning for me. Ever since, I have been obsessed with keys, especially old vintage ones. I already have like two key necklaces but I love this one pictured above. :)

3. Bohemian Handbags
They just look so pretty to me. Perfect for summer strolls and if you get a messenger, they can fit just about anything. :) This beauty can be found on Amazon.

4. Bright Red Lipstick
When it comes to make up, I am a minimalist. I hardly do anything besides eyeliner and because my lips are so small, I like drawing attention to them and bright red lipstick is definitely the way to go if you want to draw attention to your lips. The lipstick I love and use is #127 by Inglot.

5. Love Letters

Love letters are definitely underrated. With technology advancing as much as it has, people rarely take the time out to write anything anymore as there's texting and emailing so readily available. My boyfriend and I are big on cards and we give each other cards for every occasion. I think that's nicer than looking back on a saved text personally. It isn't exactly a love letter, but at least it's handwritten.

6. Polaroid Hearts
Now that I have my polaroid camera, I cannot wait until I have enough pictures to make a whole heart. Isn't the idea of having the heart where your headboard is supposed to go adorable? I love it. :)  

7. Pictures taken with Fish Eye Lens
I think I might need to invest in this for my camera. I love how the pictures come out.

8. Quirky Decor for your Home
Isn't this adorable? I, personally, have an obsession with owls. I have three owl necklaces and even an owl bookend but I don't have an owl to hold my mail. This quirky thing is from Urban Outfitters.

9. Old Pictures of NYC
It's no secret that I love all things NYC, but I especially love being able to see how it was 20, 50, even 100 years ago. 

10. Jewelry Organizers
If you remember from my accessories post, I have A LOT of jewelery and I'm always looking at ways I can organize and reorganize them. This wooden organizer is perfect because it has so many compartments and even some hooks for some necklaces. It can be found on Etsy.

And there you have it. What are some of the things you guys love? I'd love to know. :)
