Celebrity Monogram Necklace Review

Filed under Accessories

I’m maniacal about jewelry!  I have thousands of pieces that range anywhere from dainty rings to studded leather bracelets. But my favorite pieces are the ones that have some type of meaning and personalization. Among my favorite piece is my Carrie inspired name necklace that I got to review from My Name Necklace.com a few years back and it’s always on heavy rotation.  So when I was contacted once again to review another piece I jumped at the chance.

This time I decided to go with the celebrity monogram necklace  seen on celebs like Lauren Conrad and Taylor Swift.  I was going to get it with my boys initials but they only allow 3 letters and I needed 4 (soon to be 5) so instead I got mine with the initials LPH (for Love, Peace and Happiness).  I received the monogram necklace within 7 days of ordering, which is insanely quick for a personalized piece. It’s just beautiful and the length is PERFECT, which is something that I always struggle to find (it’s always either too long or too short!). The length on this piece was not only short enough to layer with other favorites but also long enough to stand alone.

 Beautiful personal gift and if you use code ‘FASHIONGRAIL‘ you get 10% off!!

Making Father’s Day Special

Disclosure: The following is a sponsored post.

Father’s Day is a celebration now firmly cemented into family life in many countries around the world, but it has not always been so. The Father’s Day of the modern age originated in America in 1909, and was the creation of American-born Ms Sonora Louise Smart Dodd.  She was inspired after listening to a church sermon about Mother’s Day, and thought it only right that fathers were honoured, too.

Father’s Day is an occasion for children to show appreciation to their fathers, and involves the presentation of gifts and Father’s Day cards. Originally, these offerings may have been homemade, just a small token of appreciation but, in recent times, the occasion has become more of a money-spinner for retailers, and many people feel that it has become  too commercialised.  In any department store or supermarket today, the shopper will be confronted with shelves stocked with a wide range of products deemed to be suitable Fathers day presents, and these will range from trinkets that cost very little, putting them within the financial reach of young children, to the very expensive. Grown up sons and daughters, of course, will have more spending power, and they will spend as much as they can. What can’t be stressed enough is that it’s not the amount of money that a Fathers Day gifts cost that really matters, it’s the thought that has gone into it, and most father’s will be as pleased with a homemade card as they will with the most expensive gift.

There are plenty of Fathers Day gifts to choose from, fashionable items like cufflinks make a great gift. Or why not pick something that you and your Dad can enjoy doing together like a wine tour or a meal in restaurant. Some of the best Father’s Day gifts are about the memories you make together.

My Father’s Day will be marked with a cake made especially for the day, a homemade card, and a copy of a favourite poem, which has been printed in a decorative font and framed in an inexpensive picture frame. I know that it will be appreciated because the poem is much loved by the special man in question, and that personal thought is what Father’s Day should be all about.
