among my most prized possessions are the words that I have never spoken.


Some things are more important than others.

Loving fashion, beauty, music, and books as I do...well, I have a lot of stuff. Out of everything I own, there are a few items that stand out among the rest.

You may or may not have noticed that in just about every picture of me, I am wearing this necklace. It has become something I would be devastated without.

My boyfriend gave it to me a while ago now. We were at a restaurant eating dinner, celebrating my interview with Scott MacIntyre. I was rambly and excited about the days events. Then out of nowhere, he pulled out a box and placed it in front of me. Before I even opened it, I was mad that he had spent money on me for no reason at all! But when I saw the necklace, and he put it around my neck, I felt like the most beautiful girl in the entire world.

Every time I wear it, I feel close to him. (Which is probably why I rarely take it off.) It is one of my most treasured possessions. The necklace is absolutely beautiful, but the reason I love it, is because of who it is from.

What is your prized posession?
