December 2008: The stark-looking magazine ad with the headline Here's to Less caught my eye.
It went on to say: "Our lives are filled with things. We're overwhelmed by possessions we own but do not treasure. Stuff we buy but never love. To be thrown away in weeks rather than passed down for generations."
How true, I thought; this is something that often happens.
Why the diamond earrings at the top of this post? Because this was an ad for De Beers, and at the bottom of the page were some lovely diamond stud earrings, and the phrase we all know: Diamonds are forever.
