The Golden Touch

I’ve always been a fan of silver’s clean minimalist shine, but for the past few seasons I’ve been incorporating more and more gold into my look—and now that I’m a homeowner, into my home décor as well. Whether real or faux, the metal traditionally associated with riches and all things luxe adds warmth and glamour to any ensemble or decorating scheme. No wonder I’ve been indulging in gilt-y pleasures any way I can!

As part of Magnum’s collaboration with Glam Media, I’ve been sharing snapshots of how I work gold into my life via Instagram. For a recovering gold-phobe like me, small but subtle touches go a long way. A foil print and mercury glass candle blend in seamlessly with all the other objets in my home, while a touch of gold (whether in the form of accent nails or little hearts) dresses up an understated manicure. Statement costume jewels like brooches and spiked bangles add the Midas touch to the most casual tee-and-jeans combo. And even if I don’t dress myself or my home in gold, I enjoy how it can make even the simplest acts, like putting on lipstick, feel more sophisticated.


Magnum Gold?! is rich vanilla bean ice cream with a sea salt caramel swirl, dipped in a golden coating made with thick Belgian Chocolate. New Magnum Gold?! As good as Gold.
