All that Glitters

gold beauty finds

Shimmer and shine with these gold beauty finds!

They say it came from outer space. Apparently a colossal meteor shower some four billion years ago deposited the precious stash of gold we now have on earth today. Whether it came from space or not, what we know for sure is that gold calls to some deeply innate part of us that covets beauty and power. And it’s pretty.
