Mine were awesome and I think I cannot eat any more chocolate for the next few years (I might change my mind by the end of the week). Before travelling to Germany for the holidays, I went konditorn [German for ‘going out to eat confectionary like old ladies do’] with a friend (modelling the necklace above) and when we went shopping afterwards, she dragged me into an Oliver Bonas store. Man, I wanted to buy everything in there, but luckily I was out of money.
