The best thing about life is the opportunity to live it. To experience, evolve, travel, spread a bit of sparkle and a lot of kindness. To have your beliefs but also the courage to learn and adapt. To be inspired by what you do and the desire to get stronger at it. My new baby, this chess set by @purlinglondon is bold, brilliant and beautiful! A lot like life 😍
