As a mother of 3 jewellery has often take a back seat to more functional things like, well, pants. I’m dashing around on a morning, trying to get three small humans ready to go out and often the last thing on my mind is accessorising. Also, I am stuck in that awful motherhood trap where to purchase anything for myself, anything at all, is akin to “treating myself” and we just don’t do that do we? Well I say we should.
I was recently lucky enough to win a Merci Maman necklace at BritMumsLive conference back in May. I never usually enter the competitions (actually if I’m honest it really frustrates me that BritMums is essentially full of competitions… I’m there to network and meet brands that want to work with bloggers, not win stuff, the mortgage man won’t take my prizes as payment…) but I love Merci Maman and I had my card in my hand, so I chucked it in the fishbowl. Next thing I know I’m getting an email to ask me to design my very own necklace, the same one that The Duchess of Cambridge can be seen sporting don’t you know!
Obviously I was thrilled. I’m not a comper, I don’t win stuff when I do put the effort into entering them so I was genuinely over the moon and immediately sent back an email gushing and making a complete tit of myself.
I chose a longer length, gold chain with two little people, one boy to represent my boys and one girl to represent Edie. The little disc is beautifully engraved on both sides with the children’s names and the sweetest little heart finishes everything off with R.T.S engraved.
I love it. It is so sweet and has made it into my “must grab and shove on” category first thing in the morning.
The question is, do you want one too?
You can choose any length, engraving and character (one for each child is the norm). All you have to do is enter the competition below 🙂
