First Look: Kimye Wedding in Italy

Finally! The moment we have been waiting for! Pictures form the much anticipated wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Though the couple and family were heavily pictured through the pre-nuptial preparations in Paris, there was an obvious lack of pictures of the day of the wedding, we obviously love the Kardashians so we couldn't wait to see the pictures,and we were not disappointed. Without further ado, below are pictures of the gorgeous couple on their special day.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West look adorable as they share their first kiss as couple. The bride and groom wore custom clothing designed by their close friend Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. Riccardo Tisci shared an image of Kim Kardashian's final fitting in Paris. Let's take a closer look shall we:

Wow! That's all we can muster for explaining this figure hugging, elegant, lace dress. This dress is a huge step up from her last bridal gown (in which she married Kris Humphries), which I personally did not like at all. Kim has obviously stepped up her fashion game since she started dating Kanye West.

The adorable couple also shared their first walk down the aisle which also gives us a closer look at the front of Kim Kardashian's stunning gown. Simply breathtaking! In the picture we also spot Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, holding Kim and Kanye's adorable daughter North, who was also dressed in Givenchy for the event.

After the reception the bride changed to a custom Balmain dress where the cute couple had a bit of photobooth fun, where they were pictured wearing matching jackets. So sweet!

Overall, I though the affair seemed elegant and classy. What did you think of the most anticipated wedding of the year? Share your thoughts with me and stay tuned to our MyNameNecklace blog for the latest on celebrity news.

Birthstone of the Month - May

Hello all your May babies out there, those celebrating the 20th or 35th wedding anniversary, along with everyone whose favorite color is green! This month's birthstone is the very beautiful emerald! Who doesn't love this piercing green stone? It is fun, fabulous, and really a great gemstone to wear!

Silver "Carrie" Style Swarovski Name Necklace
Did you know that the name of the stone comes from the ancient Greek word 'Smaragdos,' which means 'green stone'? It is considered one of the 'precious four' of gemstones (the other three being rubies, sapphires, and, of course, diamonds). Colombia is known far and wide as the best source for emeralds. Other countries with emerald deposits include Brazil, Zimbabwe, and Zambia.

There have been many stories told about this gemstone. It was the sacred stone of Venus, the Roman goddess, who believed it preserved love. The Aztecs and Incas dubbed the emerald a holy gemstone.The Hindu holy scriptures, the Vedas, state the emerald promises good luck and enhances one's well being. During the Victorian era, the birthstone was a popular gemstone in many jewelry designs.

Personalized Baby Feet Necklace
The emerald is associated with friendship, loyalty, and faithfulness. If you give an emerald to your significant other, it is supposed to ensure an everlasting relationship. Emeralds also enhance tranquility and ease troubled minds when worn. Because of its deep green color, this gemstone is symbolic of nature and the renewal of life. Emeralds are said to increase a person's ability to communicate and be diplomatic in endeavors. It can strengthen memory and restore hope and confidence.

Do you have a May birthday? Maybe you share your birthday with one of the following celebrities - Adele (May 5), Stephen Amell (May 8), and Ginnifer Goodwin (May 22),

Can't decide what birthstone you want on your next necklace? Read all about what different birthstones mean!

The Best Life Hacks for Post Grads

Graduation from college - one chapter of your life ends and the rest of your life begins! It is an insanely exciting time that is filled with so many emotions! While it is exciting to finally be done, it can also be quite scary. The next step is into the real world and, well, that can be kind of overwhelming! But don't worry, we have some great post grad life hacks to help you out on the road to the rest of your life!

lots and lots of coupons1) Don't throw away those coupon circulars! You do not have to be one of those extreme couponers, but saving a few bucks here and there can't hurt!

2) Pregame before you go out to the bars. While you probably did this in university, it was probably so you can be even more drunk. Now you do it to save money by not buying as many expensive drinks at the bar!

3) Speaking of alcohol, it is time to start learning about wine and other "adult" drinks. Yes, PBR is still acceptable every now and then, but you should learn the difference between a Rosé and a Riesling.

4) Scour the internet for deals on used furniture. Yes, these items have been loved, but they are also inexpensive for your first apartment. Little by little you can replace the used furniture with new items.

5) If you aren't getting your own place and you are still at your parents, don't be ashamed. It is a great way to save money and work on paying off your student loan debt.

Script Initial Pendant Necklace6) Make sure to always look professional at job interviews. First impressions are of the utmost importance and you want to look good, but not look like you just rolled out of bed. Initial necklaces are a really great accessory to wear because they are personalized but still chic.

7) You are now responsible for filing taxes. Do yourself a favor and buy some tax software for yourself. It is cheaper than hiring someone to do your taxes for you....or ignoring your taxes altogether.

8) If you are in a new city - learn to navigate it! Explore it, find where the cheap eats are, and learn the culture in the area!

9) Join the local community center, try a new sport, get some kind of hobby where you will meet new people and make new friends.

10) Don't forget to splurge every once in awhile! You are still young and you can still have fun. Take a trip somewhere, go on a mini shopping spree...do something that reminds you that post university life is not all about becoming an adult right away!

And while there are so many great graduation gifts out there, there is nothing better than personalized jewelry from MyNameNecklace! Say congrats to your 2014 graduate (or to yourself) with some totally fabulous name necklaces, monogrammed jewelry, and engraved accessories! Visit our website today to find some really great graduation gifts!
