Smell the Roses


Welcome back to The Monica Way.


“Today, just take time to smell the roses, enjoy those little things about your life, your family, spouse, friends, job. Forget about the thorns -the pains and problems they cause you – and enjoy life”

― Bernard Kelvin Clive, Your Dreams Will Not Die


It’s been a really exciting month for me with regards to my blogging venture.  I’ve been presented with the opportunity to expand my content and I’ve even had the freedom to pick and choose from a number of various brands all looking to collaborate with The Monica Way, something I hadn’t expected after only two months of blogging!

As writing my blog has been something I’ve had the desire to do for so long, it’s really important to me that the brands I select and collaborate with are genuinely brands and businesses that I’m passionate about and that I feel, you, my readers will value and be interested to learn about.

Wearing the White Glazed Rose Earrings in 24K Gold from The Eternity Rose

This week I wanted to introduce you to a really interesting brand with a truly wonderful concept. The company are called The Eternity Rose and I know you’re going to absolutely adore their products.


As featured in the picture above, The Eternity Rose are renowned for their beautifully crafted jewellery pieces, made from real rose petals preserved with glass glaze and trimmed in 24 Karat gold. They’re a brand that centre on the importance of longevity and as their names states, their items are created to last an Eternity.

Since adding a pair of The Eternity Rose earrings to my jewellery box, we’ve been inseparable. Who knew such a small little detail could bring about such glamour, elegance and demure to an otherwise simple outfit? The earrings have a beautiful delicacy about them, rendering them comfortable to wear and surprisingly light-weight, factors I often find to be quite the contrary when I wear dangle or drop earrings.


The designs curated by The Eternity Rose are always feminine and timeless, making their pieces the perfect gift solution for the really special people in your life (don’t forget it’s Valentines day in a month’s time). The detail in each earring is truly stunning, up close you can see every individual vein in the petals of the rose, truly original and a great conversational piece! Alongside their beautiful appearance, I love the concept behind each piece. The Eternity Rose allows you to physically preserve a special moment in time and have it to hold and treasure forever. Like a photograph or a letter, once the moment has been captured, it remains in that point in time forever.



I’ve found The Eternity Rose designs to be really versatile and my earrings have certainly had a fair amount of wear over the festive period, both day and night.

I wore them this weekend for my boyfriend’s Birthday dinner, it was a special occasion and they gave my outfit a sense of  sophistication and refinement, without looking OTT. We went out to the local Italian where we laughed and chatted about our past month spent together travelling.

It was so nice to sit down and to really focus and think about the positives from over the last couple of weeks. This is what I call stopping to smell the roses. When we all live such frantic lives, we can end up moving from one thing to the next without really concentrating on anything in particular. We can hit the fast-forward button on life and not stop until the end. Which isn’t much of a life at all.

It’s been a truly amazing month with bountiful opportunity and I am so excited for what’s in store for 2018. I am so glad I decided to realise my ambition to start blogging and I sort of wish I’d started sooner! Through blogging, I’m able to preserve and document moments in my life, giving me a little key hole to look back on them in future years. It’s also been an amazing outlet to stop and focus on specific moments and record them with acute detail and precision.

My goal this year is to blog more regularly, smell the roses more often and to really focus on the positives that life has to offer.

With that being said, have a wonderful week and I’d love to hear your thoughts on smelling the roses.

With love,
