Written by: Coco Bassey | Instagram: @cocobassey | I believe in love. To me, love is more than watching Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big beat all odds and finding their happy ending, more than Romeo and Juliet paying the ultimate price to spend an eternity together in the afterlife, and certainly more than a beautiful travel photo on Instagram, hashtagged #CoupleGoals. Love is about taking risks, trying something new, making commitments, believing in the impossible. Love is everything. I love my Chamilia jewelry as it serves as my visual reminder to always prioritize love every day. I love how each charm stands for something different: the heart charm is a classic symbol of love, but I also added on love letter, sea shell and compass charms because they stand for my love of travel, exploration and maintaining admittedly unconventional connections with my closest friends and family – most of who live thousands of miles away. As for the queen bee charm? Well, that’s just a reminder of how lucky I am to be growing as an amazing woman, entrepreneur and creator every single day.
Love is about taking risks, trying something new, making commitments, believing in the impossible. Love is everything.
This Valentine’s Day, I made a re-commitment to myself – a promise to continue pursuing love. That means taking time away from work to enjoy things that keep me inspired as a creative, spreading words and actions of kindness to strangers that I meet every single day, and surrounding myself with people and places that truly make me feel fulfilled. That’s the kind of love I believe in.
