When it came to jewelry, I used to be silver only for many years. Not because it suited me best, but because wearing gold made me feel older than I actually was.

In my mind golden rings and bracelets were reserved for, you know, adults. People that earned money in proper jobs and knew what they were talking about. If I wore gold, I felt like dressing up as someone I wasn´t, a girl pretending to be her mother.

With more knowledge about skin tones and warm and cool colors I came to realize that gold actually suits me way better than silver does. On top of that I had to admit that despite having a proper job now and earning money (hell, even being a mother!) I would probably never feel like I belonged to the truly adult people. The ones that know what they are talking about.

In fact, I came to wonder if anyone really ever feels like he belongs to that group of adult adults, but I digress.

Coming back to topic (or at least as close to topic as I ever get): These days I mix and match my jewelry, but I still consider gold, especially combined with white, a very grown up combination. The Asambeauty Vitamin E Skin Smoothing 24h Cream * is white and gold in packaging, and a sophisticated and grown-up cream indeed.

Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser – In love with Aloe vera

Shortly after we moved in together, Mr. Loca and I got into a major fight. Now I should probably mention that we do fight quite often (a fact he blames on me being stubborn and I blame on him for falling in love with a willful woman), but that was one of the major ones.

To be honest, I don’t even remember what caused it, but I remember it ending with slamming doors and me shouting: “And you never even got me flowers once!” Mature, I know, especially considering the fact that I don’t really care about flowers.

When he returned, he had bought me a plant. Thick, serrated green leaves with teeth on the margin and no flowers to be expected. Aloe vera.

It is one of the few plants that I actually kept alive throughout the years, and one that will always hold a special place in my heart. Which is why whenever I read “Aloe vera” on a product, it touches a soft spot in an instant.
