YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU ALL TO DEATH, RIGHT? LIKE, LITERAL DEATH. I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING AND TRY TO IMAGINE POSITIVE VIBES SHOOTING OUT OF EVERY CELL OF MY BODY AND BEING EXPELLED INTO THE UNIVERSE. AS MY CELLS EXPLODE AND I SLIP INTO NON-EXISTENCE, THE POSITIVE ENERGY ATTACKS EVERY ONE OF YOU AND MAKES YOU CHEER UP AND FEEL LOVE FOR EVERYTHING ELSE. THIS IS MY DREAM. I HAVE DIED FOR YOU. SOMEONE WRITE A RELIGION ABOUT ME. PRETEND I AM YOUR BREAD AND YOUR WINE.
Speaking of loving things to death, I'm wearing two pieces from Edwards & Rellas' Skullhearts jewelry collection in this post. I was so down for this collection as soon as I saw it. They have gold things, they have silver things, they have CHOCOLATE things. They literally reinterpret their jewelry design into chocolate. Let's pause and think of that for a second. Have you ever worn a piece of handcrafted jewelry while SIMULTANEOUSLY consuming it's matching chocolate counterpart? It's an experience truly beyond words. That's why I take so many pictures of things. Mitch Edwards and Pericles Rellas really do make some extraordinary jewelry though, all chocolate aside. I'm not really much of a quality judge and I don't pretend to be. The 7-Eleven clerks near my apartment and I are on a first-name basis. But wearing their pieces, holding their pieces, you can feel the quality. You don't need someone to tell you that these are handcrafted, cream-of-the-crop pieces. You know. Also, bonus: these are the first pieces of silver jewelry I've ever worn that haven't turned my skin green. QUALITY.
They're also so damn easy to style. The 'skullheart' adds such a killer spice to outfits that are one accessory short of that do-or-die 'OOMPH' factor. A believer in excess, I'm wearing twice the 'OOMPH' here, but that's more of a personal preference. Low self-esteem often has me feeling OOMPH-deprived. But neither of these Skullhearts pieces felt unnecessary. The skull addition felt effortless, not gaudy. It's such a tasteful little pop. I achieved nirvana.
AND THEIR CHOCOLATES. Let's tail this off with their chocolates. Okay, really. Their chocolates. Have you ever loved something so much that it kills you? These won't. My boyfriend and I were Drake and we made these chocolates our Amanda Bynes. For context, remember that I used to work in the candy/pastry business. I am a cupcake connoisseur. I am the master of malt balls. I know my way around a lollipop. Starting with presentation, their chocolates are in the CUTEST BOX with the CUTEST RIBBON and have the CUTEST GOLD FOIL. If you broke your significant other's favorite cigarette holder or drowned their canary, these are the best 'I'm sorry and my ability to purchase gifts for you should overrule my lack of morality please don't leave me baby I am sickeningly dependent on you' presents. And the little chocolates inside are so cute, destroying them between your teeth to help them better glide over your tongue and down the back of your throat is almost painful. But that pain is quickly overwhelmed with leg-shaking, scream-inspiring delight. Your taste buds are individually enchanted and your eyes roll into the back of your head as the hint of vanilla bean in the caramel interior strikes an American flag through the moon that is your mind and declares you to be its property. They're so bomb.
