I love anything personalised, though I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps the appeal is wearing your identity so publicly, and having your own little logo to rival the likes of YSL and Chanel. These bits can be tricky to come by, as my name is unusual, and spelt differently (I remember getting school Christmas cards with dozens of interesting variations of my name), so most ready made things are lost on me. So no keyrings, mugs, notebooks and various other bits found in gift shops. Despite this, I still like my name and I especially like getting personalised jewellery made to show it off, so I was glad when I received this My Name Necklace in the post the other day.
Very useful, as many people mishear my name when in a noisy atmosphere, thinking I’m called ‘Christopher’ instead. Also, this is the first time I have put my name on this blog….not quite so annonymous anymore.
The chain is a little smaller than I would have liked, but I like how delicate it is in comparison to my other jewellery. Anyways, the point of this post is to share the blogger love. I have managed to sort out my first competition for you, my lovely readers, to win one of two necklaces from My Name Necklace. You can choose from gold or sterling silver, and various different chain lengths to adorn your neck. Could be nice for you, or a present for a well-deserving friend.

This means you can enter up to 3 times! Everyone knows thats the magic number!
(please let me know about whether you’ve done 2 or 3 within your comment).
If you don’t have a blog, leave a name and e-mail address. Absolutely anyone can enter; you can be from Florida, Frankfurt, Falmouth or Florence, it’s truly international, unlike many giveaways at the moment (sobs at the sheer amount of clothing I could have potentially won). This competition will last for two weeks ending on August 7th at 11.59pm (GMT). I will then draw two winners, either using one of those random website name generators, or the good old-fashioned method of picking names from a hat (haven’t decided yet). Either way it will be fair and square.
Another personalised thing I own, a bracelet I got in Hong Kong a few years ago. Unfortunately I dropped it on the floor and it broke…still trying to work out how to fix it. I cropped out my sad face.
