With Valentine’s day just around the corner, I got together with my best friend Sma, to shoot a series of images for Links of London. Sma has been my best friend for the past 4 years. We both grew up in Romania but met in university in London – what are the odds? But we’ve stuck together since our very first meeting, travelled together to places I never imagined and tomorrow we’re on our way to Zanzibar for yet another adventure. To me, Valentine’s isn’t just about love between two people in a romantic relationship, I’ve spent many of my Valentines simply being around friends celebrating love and our friendship. I’ve built a very strong support system of people in my life who I’ve come to love dearly and who have played a big part in who I’ve become today. My friendship with Sma is no different, though it is very special to me. We have been there for each other through the toughest of times and had some of the best moments together as friends. I am so grateful to have her in my life. These bracelets from Links of London couldn’t be a more perfect gift for Sma and myself to gift to each other. Who said you can’t give presents during Valentine’s day to your best friend?
