It’s been a few months since the last time I wrote here. I miss writing and noting down my life, however, I had crazy schedules in the past months. Some ups and downs happened and some new plans were made. Some kinds of routine are kept in my daily schedule, but I also have made some small changes to make myself feel better everyday.
I changed my job, moving from a world renowned tech giant company to an emerging fintech company. I am still working as a product manager. My main responsibilities include designing Apps, websites, and their user experience, and I work with almost all departments in the company including design, engineering, marketing and business development. This job is challenging, but I really enjoy it. Maybe I will have another post sharing with you about my job : )
I also had a very exhausting and crazy job hunting process. It was very stressful because I was still working full time in my previous company while I was also planning to make an enhancement in another environment. I had to keep my current job going and at the same time, look and prepare for new opportunities and upcoming interviews.
However, everything has given me the best outcome, and I am really glad that I come back to my blog!
As the first post in these months, I would like to start with some new pairs of earrings I bought recently.
消失了幾個月，除了因為新冠肺炎公司改為在家工作之外，我也換了工作，從一間科技大公司換到一間規模較小、正在成長中的 Fintech 公司。
I shopped on Kava Accessories website many times. I like their vintage and elegant style very much. Besides stylish chandelier earrings full of gems and pearls, they also have chic and simple studs which are perfect for me to wear to the office. I had posts introducing my collection if you are interested in them!
And once I found out that Kava has a new series which are birthstones, they really caught my eye because the design is simple and chic, and with different meanings for different gemstones.
Here are the pairs I bought and the meanings I expected to get from these gemstone:
我已經網購 Kava Accessories 很多次，每一次購買的飾品都讓我相當滿意。雖然她們家主打的復古風格，有許多華麗精緻的垂吊式耳環之外，也有很多簡約優雅，可以日常或是上班配戴的飾品，即使造型簡單一些，加上寶石點綴，依舊帶有經典的復古風格，如果你也喜歡這種風格的飾品，那 Kava Accessories 絕對不會讓你失望。
Kava Accessories 每個月都上新品，現在我的飾品櫃中也有許多來自Kava的耳環，之前有寫過幾篇介紹我的收藏：
January Birthstone: Garnet
According to Wikipedia, the word garnet comes from the 14th-century Middle English word gernet, meaning ‘dark red’. I admit that I was first attracted by the deep red color of the gems on these earrings. The design of these earrings is very simple with only the garnet and its prawn setting. Kava also provides two colors which are silver and rose gold for the prawn. For this pair of garnet ones, I chose the rose gold prawn setting because I really like the look combining gold and dark red. I think it’s really intriguing.
February Birthstone: Amethyst
Purple is one of my favorite colors. The Kava amethyst are transparent and crystal. Amethyst means honesty and peace. The violet color of the amethyst makes the earrings elegant and classy. I rarely wear crystal accessories because I think they look too mature on me, however, this pair of amethyst earrings are easy to wear with its exquisite design and quality.
July Birthstone: Ruby
Ruby means red in Latin. Like its look, ruby means passion and dignity. I like the meaning of ruby since sometimes I tend to be more conservatiove and not motivated, and wearing this pair of ruby earrings makes me feel I can borrow some energy and courage from it. And unlike the previous garnet and amethyst which are steady and classy, as the ruby itself, this pair of ruby earrings is edgy and eye-catching.
September Birthstone: Sapphire
Sapphire makes me think of the ocean. Sapphire means kindness and moral prestige. The crystal blue color makes sapphire look beautiful and mysterious. And since I have many blue clothes, these sapphire earrings are easy to wear with my daily outfit no matter if it’s in the office or casual.
October Birthstone: Opal
Opal gives me the real vintage look and feel because I remember when I was still in New York, I went to an antique boutique and there were many beautiful jewelry made with opal. Opal means joy, happiness and bringing back good luck. It also represents those people who are sensitive to beauty. This pair of opal earrings look plump and shiny. Wearing this pair of opal earrings makes me feel I am also wearing the atmosphere from a graceful antique boutique.
Okay! It’s really exciting for me to get back to blogging again, and to writing about things happening in my life. Hope you enjoy the post today, and feel free to comment and let me know what you think about these gemstone accessories shared today!
