This was my birthday present from my husband (although I did actually pick it out myself...). It's a 22 carat gold heart from Delhi, India. It's huge! I'll need to post a photo of it where you can make out the size better. It's not heavy since it's not solid but hollow. The price was around 450 euros, which is a lot of money, but I am sure it would have cost a lot more in Europe...
My sapphire ring and pendant from India, both in 22 carat gold. I also have a matching pair of stud earrings. The reason I bought so much jewelry while in India is that it's so much cheaper there. Apparently you could sell jewelry bought from India for about three times as much in Germany and, well, Finland is even more expensive than Germany. So I would make a profit if I sold my jewelry at auction. However, I'm not sure I want to. :-)
Some of my jewelry. You can see here that I have two different colours of gold: the gold from Finland is a bit pink-ish and the gold from India is very, very yellow. The Finnish gold is 18 carats and the Indian gold is 22 carats.
Another amazing piece from the Acne Fall-Winter 2011 collection: this may well be the most beautiful pair of trousers I've ever seen!

I seriously love the Acne fall-winter 2011 collection! So much gorgeous leather in such unusual colours. I want these overalls!

I wore this bracelet all the time in Goa too. I believe it's made of lead, since it's very heavy. It's got an elastic, so don't know how long it'll last but I really love it. I just have to be careful not to flail my arms around too much because I've sometimes literally sent this baby flying - it's the combination of heavy metal and elastic...
I wore these silver earrings almost all the time when I was on holidays in Goa (I even wore them to the beach). It was incredible how many women said: "I love your earrings!". This is a very traditional Indian style of earring.

I don't know how it is that I haven't heard about these brushes before....they are apparently the Holy Grail of hairbrushes. I read about them here:
The photo is also stolen from there.
OK, so now I want one of these brushes and even the small size costs 90 euros....oh well, one of these days...
