I´ve just come back from Greece with Olympus, who hosted the most incredible press trip to Nikki Beach in Porto Heli, located on the Greek Riviera. Over 50 international influencers and bloggers were gathered together over the weekend to celebrate the pre-launch of the new Olympus PEN E-PL8 camera (which I exclusively happen to have a small handful of for my readers to buy here, before it´s even officially launched!).
Aside from chilling by the pool at Nikki Beach, boat trips to the nearby island of Spetses (which is probably the most picturesque Greek island I have ever been to) and playing around with our new camera; we also had the pleasure of visiting the iconic Amanzoe Hotel. Reportedly the most expensive resort in Europe (gulp), but also, the location for our Olympus PEN E-PL8 shoot… I´ll let the pictures do the talking.
Now, let´s talk about this ring set for a minute. Aside from my engagement and wedding band, it´s probably become one of my most precious jewellery possessions. It´s a bespoke hand-crafted design created by Rebus Signet Rings, located in London´s iconic jewellery quarter, Hatton Gardens. Rebus create stunning signet rings with traditional family crests, or any other symbol or personal meaningful designs you’re after.
I popped by a few months ago, to create my own special design and symbol. After a lot of deliberation – considering both my initials and my star sign; I decided to opt for the symbol of the Swallow – which has many different meanings across various cultures, but primarily, it represents hope, new beginnings and happiness. As well as opting for the classic gold signet ring, I also got their diamond ´Keeper` ring – created as the perfect companion to the signet. Combined, it´s one of the most stunning pieces of jewellery I own, hand-crafted and unique. And just happens to be the first piece of valuable jewellery I have ever treated myself too (which of course, makes it even more special).
There´s been a lot of travelling these past few months. And as much as I love it and am not complaining at all, I´m kind of looking forward to having my two feet firmly planted on UK soil for the next few weeks, before I’m off again to L.A and New York at the end of the month.
