A few weeks ago, I started wearing this gorgeous namaste necklace by Asha Patel Designs.

I mentioned how much I was loving the necklace in one of my Of the Moment posts, and the team over at Asha Patel kindly offered to give a WORD! necklace to a C’est Christine reader! Simply follow @ashapateldesigns on Instagram and leave a comment below with what word necklace you’d choose: one winner will be announced on Friday. [Note: must be able to ship to a U.S. address]

Postcard from Bidwell Park

One of the best things about attending Chico State (other than all of those parties) was Bidwell Park: the third largest municipal park in the United States was just a short bike ride from campus.

Cruising up the Sacramento River
