In my job, I often find myself working until late. Often my car is parked in underground garages, or deserted parking lots. I spend time wandering cities for food and am out and about very early or very late at night, when it's still dark. Not knowing the area can be a little scary, and I often find myself walking quickly, holding my keyring in my hand with a key poking out between each finger and looking about myself as I walk from hospital to car to hotel to airport. A few months ago I found a pretty little piece of jewelry that I just knew would be the perfect addition to my training wardrobe. (especially since I wear black, black and more black!) Last night I finally purchased it, and can't wait for it to arrive in my mailbox in a pretty little package.
This sweet little whistle necklace by Julie Nolan will help me be fashionable and safe!
The whistle really works and is affixed to a 20" long chain, all in 14k gold. The night I found it on Etsy and bookmarked it I was so excited! I looked over at Spencer and said, "Oh my goodness! I have to get this! It's a necklace AND a whistle!" he gave me a huge mock smile and made fun of me, saying something along the lines of gym-teacher fashion...but when I explained why it would be great for me he totally understood, and thought it was a good idea. :) I can't wait to wear it, even when tucked inside my shirt, just to know it's there if I need it will be wonderful!
What do you do to make yourself feel a little bit safer when you are alone at night?
