IT'S A PIRATE LIFE FOR ME ft. REGAL ROSE

Rings:
- Teardrop Ring* - Regal Rose (currently unavailable from the site) 
The rest are rings I get from markets around town. 





Ever since I can remember I have been obsessed with the sea and the idea of freedom. Being a girl born in the big city of Milan where salty water was nowhere to be seen or found, I always wanted to live by the coast so 5 years ago when we decided to move to UK, the location HAD to be somewhere where I could see the ocean. If you've been lucky enough to have it on your doorstep your whole life, don't take it for granted - it's a beautiful scenery many can only dream of. 

 My little fantasy of being a pirate was mainly fed to me from my surroundings like friends and teachers who would share awesome stories during break hours at school so we would all play "the Captain and his Crew". Was this popular as a game here in UK? Let me know because I'm quite curious. Anyway, I always ended up being the leader ( and the only girl to play it) because of my "amazing" skill at jumping from table to table without breaking my neck. 

With time when Pirates of the Caribbean came out you could easily say that thanks to Johnny Depp I acquired an exquisite taste for bad guys with charming smiles and his little mannerisms were so cool to me that as a 12 year old I was copying him. Every halloween and Carnival I was dressed as good old Jack Sparrow - with moustache and all! 

His style was pretty impeccable and the thing I would always end up looking at were his rings with big gemstones, I wanted them all! Now, after a few years, I've been slowly building up my collection and about a year ago when I found out about Regal Rose as a brand (I'm always late to the party), I fell IN LOVE with their designs. The quality of the rings is impeccable and you can be sure that everyone will be staring at your fingers because their stuff does stand out. You have a massive variety of gemstones and from septum rings to chokers, you'll find some amazing pieces! If you think you're not "cool" enough to wear their stuff, please don't be fooled! There are simple and understated designs for the girl next door as well. On my current wishlist there is a new ring called Wanderlust which is PERFECT for all the gypsy spirits out there. 

Of course, I got really excited when I had the opportunity to work with them this month and got sent two rings. I was literally jumping up and down around the house. I decided to feature them in this pretty natural shoot on the beach and to also make a little debut as "short-haired Kristina" since I've been rocking long hair for the past 14 years and it was a big change for me. 

Major props to the boyfriend who never held a DLSR before and this is his second "shoot" for my blog, I really wouldn't know what to do without him. I hope you enjoy the photos and if you haven't checked out Regal Rose yet, do it now - you won't be disappointed! 

xoxo

  14. No, never heard of the game 'Captain and His Crew'. It's not something we played as kids. Ooh, Johnny Depp! Bad off screen as well as on. We all love a bit of a rogue, lol! Love your rings, particularly the one of your ring finger with the baby blue gem. Tx
