New Collection for Cleopatra’s Bling

For my boutique, Cleopatra’s Bling, I am working on a collection that is really inspired by spirituality and Gods. After visiting India two times I have become more and more interested in the symbolism of their decorative art and culture and colours and I want to bring an aspect of this to my next collection.

Please like my facebook page and share the love, there are lots of great things to come.

GIVEAWAY! CONCOURS!

We are proud to announce our first Giveaway on Cleopatra’s Bling!

The piece we have chosen to give our lucky winner is a vintage bracelet that is very special and we believe will find a good home with one of you. This vintage Afghani agate cuff was made around 30 years ago by the Kuchi Pashtuns, a nomadic people in what is now Afghanistan. It is probably from the Logar region.

What can agate do for you in your life?

Agate’s most noticable properties overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. Historically it was placed in water for cooking or drinking to dispel sickness. The Metaphysical and Healing Properties Lore of any specific type of agate depend to some extent on the color of the agate, but all agates have certain things in common.

Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength both and physically mentally.

Kale Soup

Winter time calls for soup time. This simple recipe is something that you can make very quickly at home and is perfect for a light meal with melted cheese on toast (oops!). This soup is just so easy, see for yourselves….

Here is how I did it:
a bunch of kale
a cup of lentils
vegetable stock
a bunch of spinach

I use organic green lentils and cook them up until soft. You’ll need to then drain the water and put new water in as the base of the soup and add the vegetable stock and any herbs or spices that you wish to use. For this soup I use some garam masala and herbes de Provence. The rest is simple: add in the kale and spinach and when the soup is cooked down and soft, blend it and serve it with a dollop of crème fraîche and the zest of a lemon or lime. Yum!

Cleopatra’s Bling: the Indian collection

I hope you’re as excited as I am for the new collection for Cleopatra’s Bling. During our trip in India, we got rings made. I drew up the designs I wanted that I had been musing over for some time and we got them made by a wonderful local craftsman in Pondicherry.

If there are any items that you wish to purchase please either comment on this article or write to us on olivia@oh-la-la-livia.com

I am really in love with the two big silver rings. We only have one of each for the time being. So be quick if you are head over heels!
