I got my very first Monica Vinader bracelet from an ex boyfriend several years ago and I've been admiring these charming jewellery pieces (this was my first piece ever and I still have it with me today) ever since, and when you've been a longtime fan of a brand it means a little extra something when they ask you to shoot for them. This shoot was a little bit different for me though since I challenged myself and modelled the pieces (I'm extremely camera shy and my hands were certainly not created to do any sort of modelling), while setting up the shot I was looking for and eating croissants, all at the same time. How a person can to eat croissants and end up with crumbs in their hair (yes, I had to edit those out) will always baffle me though and might point to the fact that I'm not meant for modelling and that I'm better off behind the camera in most scenarios...
Ideally, this is how every Sunday morning would start if I had my way. Croissants, pretty jewellery pieces and great company at one of the many Parisian cafés around the city (the French newspaper is the perfect way to practice your French while looking super smart I might add). I'm definitely getting myself those bracelets and perhaps a ring or two since there's no time to wait around for boyfriends or gifts anymore!
