The State of Things

Bonjour! Hola! Hello! Je ne veux pas travailler...

It's true, I don't feel like working and I miss the days when I had more time to dedicate to this blog. For months now I have been thinking about Moi Je Joue and all the updates to the content, the look and feel of it that I would love to make. I've decided that as soon as I am past tomorrow's flamenco production of Snow Queen, I will be dedicating more time here again. Until then though, here are the very few but ever time-consuming reasons why I have been so silent here (if you were even at all curious...):
  • Travel. I have been fortunate enough over the past six months to visit the Philippines, New York, Madrid and Paris. In a few weeks, I plan to add Seattle to that list as well.
  • Work. I am at work almost full time now and when I am not there, I'm busy starting a new business, which I hope to share with you soon!
  • Dance. When I'm not travelling or working, I fill my evenings with flamenco dance at the Vancouver studio, Karen Flamenco. I rehearse, perform, set design and manage some of their online properties, including their blog and social media. 
  • Family. It seems that we are always having family visit and that, of course, takes priority. 
I've decided, enough distractions. I'm planning to give Moi Je Joue a bit of a new look and I'm excited to begin a better balancing act! Until then...

Adiós & Au revoir!

Style: Simple Rings

Bling and perfectly matching set of earrings, necklace, bracelet and ring? Not really my kind of frosting. But there is something about the beautifully simple pieces.
Here are a few of my favourite simple rings...

 1. Catbird Hammered First Knuckle Ring | 2. Bario Neal Fishtail, rose gold | 3. Bario Neal Knottedrush, rose gold | 4. Indulgent Designs Infinity Knot | 5. Katrina Lapenne Braid | 6. Blanca Monrós Gómez (the best for last)

Beautiful, no? Any one of these pieces would make a lovely gift or even as a wedding band, though not very traditional ;)
