I felt like it was time that I added some stylish, minimalistic jewellery to my collection. I've got lots of fun statement pieces but nothing simple that will go with all my outfits. It made me feel like an actual adult. Words can not describe how much I love these two pieces from Happiness Boutique. This cute mantra necklace sums up four qualities everyone should live their life by: luck, belief, courage and wisdom. Here's why we need each of them:

I believe we make our own luck in life, through hard work and determination. I also belief in karma, that if we do good, the universe brings us good things in return. You also sometimes can get a lot of bad luck, but there is always a balance and it normally means that the universe is going to bring you something very good in return.

I think this is one of the best qualities a person can have. As important as intellectual intelligence is, I think being wise sometimes tops it. Learning through experience and having good judgement are so important for making life discussions. Then again, I also believe that you should follow your heart, no matter how stupid your head thinks you are being... because that's how you have moments of pure bliss. Sometimes you have to be completely crazy and risk everything to achieve your dreams.

This is another thing that is so important to me (especially has a Gryffindor, for any Harry Potter fans out there). This gives you the strength to overcome difficulties. I have had moments where I have been so unthinkably terrified but my courage has always given me the strength to push through. I also believe that you should try new things and break the rules and be a little crazy and times and courage allows us to do this.

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it' - Nelson Mandela

My belief makes me who I am. I have big dreams and I will do anything to achieve them and will never give up because I have lots of belief. We should believe in ourselves... we should believe in the universe, that through all the hard times it has great plans for us... believe in the magic of the small things, like sunsets and fairy lights.

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." - Audrey Hepburn

I love the double circle necklace too, it's classic but has a unusual twist - which makes it look so stylish and fashion-forward. I've got so many different ideas of how I can wear it. I deffo recommend checking out happiness boutique too. This post was a collaborative post but they were so great to work with. The items arrived quickly in cute packaging with a little note inside for me. I love the personal touch.
