Win a Merci Maman necklace worth £100+

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset


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 🙂

Good luck!

    How cute! I would have a little boy on for my son Dylan…he is truly my best-friend! I’d also buy an additional one for our little dog as she is just as spoilt and definitely thinks she is human x

    It’s hard to choose but probably the Personalised Intertwined Necklace, possibly with the children’s names on the big circle and my husband’s on the smaller circle.

    I love the Merci Maman jewellery ever since I first saw them in Britmums! So pretty and personal too.

    I’d love a silver necklace I could wear daily as a little boost of glam! With something positive written on it maybe so I can take 5 and regroup at times when it’s needed 🙂

  51. Avatar August 3, 2016 / 12:34 pm

    I never wear jewellery anymore but I’ve had it in my mind to get a meaningful necklace to wear on a day to day basis. One of these would be perfect! Mine would probably be similar but maybe shorter as I’m still always bending over to pick up my littlest and she’d probably end up strangling me with a long one!! X p.s. Fab competition

    I like something quite simple so maybe just a girl with Erin’s name added. Really need a replacement after losing my Tiffany necklace during her birth
