“Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work. It is who you are. You think differently. You experience life intensely. You care about injustice. You seek meaning. You appreciate and strive for the exquisite. You are painfully sensitive. You are extremely complex. You cherish integrity. Your truth-telling has gotten you in trouble. Should 98% of the population find you odd, seek the company of those who love you just the way you are. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. You are utterly fascinating. Trust yourself!”

A few of my favourite things...

Today was lovely for me.  I am finally feeling better and I received some lovely things today.  The first was a gift which really surprised me.  My student teacher has been using a fantastic Swarovski pen during her placement.  I have been teasing her that if she couldn't find it at the end of her teaching block, that it would NOT be in my purse!  Today, on her final day, she gave me my OWN pen.  I love it. I was totally speechless!  It takes a lot to leave me without words!  Her pen is filled with white Swarovski crystals and mine is filled with black ones!  I will have to take really good care of this beautiful writing implement!
Do you know Stella & Dot?  Last year my principal asked a local Stella & Dot stylist (her name is Trish Mann and if you live in Toronto…she is the BEST!) to come to our school and host a trunk show.  I fell in LOVE with the stylish, affordable jewellery.  I bought a gorgeous Medina bib necklace and the Adrienne lariat necklace.  I have enjoyed wearing these pieces with a wide variety of clothing over the past year.  The Adrienne necklace can even be worn as a bracelet!

For Christmas I decided to by classroom volunteer something special.  My fabulous stylist Trish suggested the Panther necklace.  I love it, and so did my volunteer!  It has a hematite plated brass finish on it.  It is fun to wear with both casual and dressy looks.  I think I might have to buy myself one too!
Stella & Dot have such great merchandise and because I had won some "style credits" with a previous purchase, I was able to purchase more great jewellery.  Trish dropped my order off at my school today!  Talk about customer service!   I know all you teachers are going to love the "Apple of My Eye" necklace.   

I have been wanting a rosary bead style necklaces for ages so I also ordered the Gitane Tassel necklace. It can be worn long or doubled.  You can also remove the tassel.  It will be a perfect layering piece. I can't wait to wear it!  

As one of the specials that Stella and Dot sometimes run, I was able to order the adorable laurel leaf studs below for only an extra $5 when I put in my order for the necklaces. I think they will be great everyday earrings to wear to school.  

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
