Lovely Truth: How Cleopatra Won Her Bet

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a wonderful day even though the sky is grey. I have found over time that pearls have quite a history and some lovely little truths that many are unaware of so I thought I'd take a moment out to share one with you.

This is one of my favorite!
