Say "I Love You" to the Environment this Valentine's Day with Green Gift Cards


Wouldn't it be nice to find an easy way to give that special someone the perfect gift without all the frenzy and hassle of endless store aisles and hours spent going from one shopping complex to another? The easy answer is the gift card. But there has always been a negative stigma associated with the gift card - the only people who buy them are lazy and don't want to spend time looking for the right gift. We have all thought at one time or another that gift cards are super impersonal and only given to those people you are obligated to give gifts to but don't really want to put any thought or effort into. But that really isn't true! In today's day and age where convenience is key, a gift card is actually the best option - it enables the recipient to get exactly what they want. No one wants to give a gift that will either collect dust in the closet or be re-gifted to an unsuspecting person.  If your friend loves books, but you don't know what book they are jonsing for next, getting them a gift card to their favorite book shop is the perfect option!

Valentine's Day Gifts at MyNameNecklace
There are so many products to choose from! Can't decide what to buy someone?
Let them decide with a gift card!

Did you know that according to the International Card Manufacturer's Association, over 30 billion gift cards were produced in 2012? (And this doesn't even include the number of electronic cards purchased!) This means a lot of men and women are jumping on the gift card bandwagon! And did you know that a majority of these cards are made of materials that contain pollutants harmful to the environment? The question becomes do you really need a physical gift card, especially to online shops? Now many online retailers are furthering their commitment to the environment by offering electronic gift cards. Major retailers, aside from making their physical gift cards more biodegradable, are making their electronic gift cards more appealing to buyers, including offering additional discounts if cards are purchased via the online store. The recipient receives an email with the coupon code and amount. No (environmental) harm and no foul!

Infinity Bracelet trend on Girls!

Allison Williams plays Marnie on Girls wearing a infinity bracelet 
The newest season of Girls is in full force! The critically acclaimed television show is such a hit for its very really portrayal of young girls trying to make something out of themselves. The show's creator Lena Dunham, has been called a voice for our times. Her characters are real with their flaws embraced, not shamed.

At the beginning of the season, Marnie, the show's effortless beauty, who strives for perfection is going through a tough breakup. She is seen showing off an infinity bracelet. Marnie, played by Allison Williams, is a character that a lot of people today can relate to, the yearn for perfectionism, the terrible breakups, the confusion in finding out who you are. There is something endearing about Marnie, that with all her faults, you want to be like her in a way. Not to mention her amazing and classic style!

Marnie seems to breaking outside of her shell this season, and we can't wait to see more of how she develops! I, for one, loved her cover of 90's hit What I Am for all its awkward glory.

Allison definitely has a talent for singing, which gave her a huge boost in her career. She claims that her cover of the Mad Men theme song is what clinched her role as Marnie on Girls.

Allison is featured on the latest issue of Elle Magazine Women in TV issue, looking as gorgeous as ever. Her co-star Lena Dunham is also on the cover of Vogue Magazine this month. Her shoot was heavily criticized for apparent photo-shopping of the girl who shows off her perfectly imperfect body. Lena stood by her cover and Vogue.

So do you watch Girls? Who is your favorite character? Let us know in the comments!

SAG Awards 2014

Awards season is in full force! This weekend was the Screen Actor's Guild Awards, otherwise known as the SAG awards, where fellow actors choose their favorites for various movies and television.
Let's look at some of the outfits of the night...
Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi at the SAG Awards
Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi at the SAG Awards
Amy Adams looks awesome at the SAG awards, what a great color choice. Her hair and makeup screamed old Hollywood, while her dress gave a modern twist.
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy at the SAG awards.
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy at the SAG awards.
Though I am not a usual fan of pink this combination with the style and sequence was a great fit for Cate Blanchett. She looked gorgeous. I also love her Australian sassy-ness. Go feminism!

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior at the SAG Awards
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior at the SAG Awards
Yes I love it! A big step up from her look at the Glolden Globes, Jennifer Lawrence stayed with a Dior look but much more fascinating. I love her Disco sequence look, and her form-fitting dress. 
Sandra Bullock in Lanvin at the SAG awards
Sandra Bullock in Lanvin at the SAG awards
Yay! Sandra Bullock looks so good in Lanvin. The color and fit of the dress makes her positively glow. 
Emilia Clarke in Calvin Klein at the SAG awards
Emilia Clarke in Calvin Klein at the SAG awards
 I think Emilia Clarke could wear a potato sack and I would think she looks amazing. Her outfit is so A++ even Jared Leto couldn't help but flirting with her. SWOON! What a beautiful couple that would make.

Kerry Washington in Prada at the SAG awards
Kerry Washington in Prada at the SAG awards
Though I applaud Kerry Washington for wearing a midriff-baring outfit while she is pregnant, I didn't like the outfit itself. I thought it was ill fitting.
Lupita Nyong'o in Gucci at the SAG awards
Lupita Nyong'o in Gucci at the SAG awards
I didn't include Lupita Nyong'o in my Golden Globes sum up because I didn't know who she was and didn't think she was of note (even though she looked FAB.) I was clearly wrong as she is clearly a newcomer to be watched. She won the SAG award for her role in 12 Years a Slave and I am sure we will see a lot more of her. She also looks so vibrant here. I love it!
Anna Gunn in Monique Lhuillier at the SAG awards
Anna Gunn in Monique Lhuillier at the SAG awards
Anna Gunn looked amazing in her midnight blue dress, her bright earrings complimented perfectly with her dress. I also love her special Breaking Bad clutch. Let's take a closer look:
Breaking Bad clutch worn by Anna Gunn at the SAG awards
So cute! A Breaking Bad clutch worn by Anna Gunn
Abigail Breslin in Chagoury at the SAG awards
Abigail Breslin in Chagoury at the SAG awards
Abigail Breslin showed us she is all grown us in this pretty form-fitting gown. I do love the dress though where is the cute girl from Little Miss Sunshine? 

Sofia Vergara in Donna Karan at the SAG awards
Sofia Vergara in Donna Karan at the SAG awards
This is a stunning dress worn by Sophia Vergara. I'm a sucker for silver sequence!
Michelle Dockery in J. Mendel at the SAG awards
Michelle Dockery in J. Mendel at the SAG awards
Michelle Dockery looks gorgeous as usual but I am not a huge fan of her dress. She could have done better. *Sigh*
Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang at the SAG awards
Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang at the SAG awards
Meh. Not so impressed. I also think Kaley Cuoco eye makeup is wayyy to dark.
Jennifer Garner in MAX MARA at the SAG awards
Jennifer Garner in MAX MARA at the SAG awards
SNOOZE. Jennifer Garner is a classic beauty, but this dress is a bit of a bore. Her make and hair is gorgeous though.
Claire Danes in Vionnet at the SAG awards
Claire Danes in Vionnet at the SAG awards
Oh no. I do not like this. But I love Claire Danes! I feel like there was an overwhelming amount of navy at the SAG awards. (Too much!)
Sarah Paulson in Rochas at the SAG awards

I thought Sarah Paulson looked great in her new bob haircut and her puffy white dress.

Our Favorite Quotes About Love

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and we love celebrating this holiday at MyNameNecklace. Candy conversation hearts and boxes of chocolate aside, it is a great way to show people how you feel about them. It doesn't necessarily have to be passionate love, but it can be the love shared between two friends. As we start gearing up for the holiday full of hearts, flowers, and the color pink, we decided to share with you some of our favorite quotes having to do with L-O-V-E.

The Word Love



"A simple 'I love you' means more than money."
- Frank Sinatra

“We’re all weird, and life’s a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
– Dr. Seuss

“Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.”
– Robert Frost


You and Me Puzzle Pieces



"Only time can heal your broken heart, just as only time can heal his broken arms and legs."
- Miss Piggy
(She sure did know her stuff, right!?)

 “Doubt thou stars are fire; doubt that the sun doth move; doubt truth to be a liar; but never doubt I love.”

– William Shakespeare


I'm All Yours



"So it's not going to be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day."
- The Notebook
(You cannot have a post about love quotes without including The Notebook!)

"Don't forget I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."

- Notting Hill


Your Hand Here


“I would rather have eyes that cannot see; ears that cannot hear; lips that cannot speak, than a heart that cannot love.”

Golden Globes 2014

Awards season is my favorite time of year!!!! The season kicked off with a bang with the 2014 Golden Globes, awarding the best in television and film. The Golden Globes is always a good signifier of the people who will be awarded in the future award shows in the coming weeks. A lot of fan favorites won last night including Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation, Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle and Leonardo DiCaprio for Wolf of Wall Street. Now let's get to the good part the best... and worst looks of the red  night! Without further ado...
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior at Golden Globes
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
"I'm wearing Dior, I wanted to surprise, do a shocker" Jennifer Lawrence said to Ryan Seacrest in an interview. Sums it up perfectly. I am SO tired of seeing Jennifer Lawrence in Dior. Okay, I get it, she is the face of Miss Dior. This outfit was snooze-worthy, not to mention a bit unflattering.  (Though she still looks amazing.)
Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen at the Golden Globes
Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen at the Golden Globes
Allison Williams of the popular TV show Girls fame looked great in the perfect combination of sleek yet interesting.
Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera at the Golden Globes
Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera at the Golden Globes
Tina Fey alongside Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes for the second time. Their hosting once again was a huge success. This dress (though not the only one she wore last night) was my least favorite. The weird pattern mixed with the unflattering cut is not appealing for the pretty Tina.
Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney at the Golden Globes
Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney at the Golden Globes
Tina's co-host Amy Poehler looked fabulous in a form-fitting Stella McCartney. A great look for the blonde comedian.
Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive at the Golden Globes
Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive at the Golden Globes
Cate Blanchett in Armani is one of my favorite outfits of the night. She looks classy as always.
Jessica Chastain at the Golden Globes
Jessica Chastain in Givenchy at the Golden Globes
Jessica Chastain overall looked beautiful but I REALLY didn't like her hair and her dress is just okay.
Kerry Washington in Balenciaga at the Golden Globes
Kerry Washington in Balenciaga at the Golden Globes
Kerry Washington is positively glowing in her custom made Balenciaga gown. She paired it with the best accessory, her baby bump!
Kate Mara in J Mendel at the Golden Globes
Kate Mara in J Mendel at the Golden Globes
Kate Mara is coolly sophisticate in J Mendel gown and newly blonde locks.
Kaley Cuoco in Rani Zakhem at the Golden Globes
Kaley Cuoco in Rani Zakhem at the Golden Globes
Didn't love Kaley Cuoco's Rani Zakhem dress but I've never really loved her style.
Amy Adams in Valentino at the Golden Globes
Amy Adams in Valentino at the Golden Globes
The stunning Amy Adams actually didn't impress me with this dress. I thought she could have done much better. She won a Golden Globe for her role in American Hustle.

Emilia Clarke in Proenza Schouler at the Golden Globes
Emilia Clarke in Proenza Schouler at the Golden Globes
Emilia Clarke of the Game of Thrones stunned in this Proenza Schouler gown. This was definitely my favorite gown of the night. Everything about it- the cut, the pattern, the color was just right. Everyone is also a buzz over the much anticipated trailed of the new season of Game of Thrones.
Emma Roberts in Lanvin at the Golden Globes
Emma Roberts in Lanvin at the Golden Globes
Emma Roberts went for safe yet gorgeous gown. She made the outfit pop with her turquoise earrings.
Emma Watson in Dior at the Golden Globes
Emma Watson is a personal favorite celebrity of mine, so she can do no wrong in my eyes. I applaud Emma for forgoing the classic gown style and going for an edgy look, wearing *gasp* pants. I don't know if this was necessarily was the event to do it, but I think she rocked this Dior look (and I definitely like it better then Jennifer Lawrence's Dior dress).
Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad at the Golden Globes
Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad at the Golden Globes
Does Kate Beckinsale ever look bad? No, never. She looks amazing.
Michelle Dockery in Oscar de la Renta at the Golden Globes
Michelle Dockery in Oscar de la Renta at the Golden Globes
Love Michelle Dockery thanks to Downton Abbey! She looks awesome here, no complaints!
Julianna Margulies in Andrew Gn at the Golden Globes
Julianna Margulies in Andrew Gn at the Golden Globes
Julianna Margulies looks gorgeous in this Andrew Gn gown. The perfect dress for her.
Olivia Wilde in Gucci at the Golden Globes
Olivia Wilde in Gucci at the Golden Globes
Breathtaking and pregnant?? Too much!! Olivia Wilde looks perfect.
Lizzy Caplan in Emilio Pucci at the Golden Globes
Lizzy Caplan in Emilio Pucci at the Golden Globes
Love love love this look! Lizzy Caplan is a far cry from her 50's attire she wears in her new hit show Masters of Sex.
Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta at the Golden Globes
Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta at the Golden Globes
What a fairy tale look from Zooey Deschanel. She looks gorgeous!
Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung at the Golden Globes
Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung at the Golden Globes
I did not like this look from Sandra Bullock! Too many colors I don't like rolled into one. Thumbs down!
Lena Dunham in Zac Posen at the Golden Globes
Lena Dunham in Zac Posen at the Golden Globes
I think that this color is a good look for Lena Dunham, but they style of it is just bad. Always waiting for Lena to wear a dress she can rock.
Naomi Watts in Tom Ford at the Golden Globes
Naomi Watts in Tom Ford at the Golden Globes
 Naomi Watts ALWAYS look good! Forever beautiful. 

Whew! Well I'm worn out from looking at all those designer gowns. What do you think? What were the favorite looks of the night? Stay tuned at the next awards for the best and worst dressed!
