It's that time of the year again where we set our ourselves new goals, search for interests and save for exciting adventures.
January's birthstone couldn't be more perfect to aid those New Year resolutions. Inspired by the warm Moroccan sun, the crimson red of Garnet mimics the wash of burnt reds and oranges of the mystical city of Marrakesh. Just a short haul journey; this beautiful city tempts us with the sunshine, bustling atmosphere, beauty, and all its exotic hidden gems.
