2) With the Super Bowl just a few days away, advertisers are coming up with the best commercials they can! We love the one from T-Mobile with Kim Kardashian West!



3) We love to travel. We all have passports with loads of foreign stamps in them. And while we always go to places that are easily accessible, what about those places that are not easily accessible?



4) #deflategate has been a huge 'scandal' leading up to the Super Bowl this weekend. And while Bill Belichick tried to give his scientific reasoning behind it, we love the explanation given by another Bill!



5) And now for your moment of cuteness!

10 Twitter Hashtags Everyone is (or Should be) Using

If you have been under a rock for awhile, then you don't know about the phenomenon that is Twitter hashtags! They have become a very important part of the way people communicate online. Hashtags are an easy way to groups certain tweets with a common theme and some of them are just really fun to read! And if you love Twitter as much as we do (@mynamenecklace), then you are probably well verse in the art of hashtags!

What is your favorite hashtag? Did you know we have a Hashtag Necklace, where you can promote your #? At MyNameNecklace we love funny things people order on name necklaces! Lots of people love to make their name necklace unique and interesting.

Here are 10 of our favorite hashtags right now!

#11thcommandment

Thou shalt not wear leggings as pants, thou shalt only use the word "literally" when grammatically correct to do so, thou shalt not refer to oneself in the third person.

#arelationshipisoverwhen

#arelationshipisoverwhen....you find out he is really a she.

#winning

Charlie Sheen hasn't been #winning for quite awhile now. Maybe he needs to invest in more #tigerblood.

#ithoughtiwascool

We'll let Jimmy Fallon field this one for us!



#firstworldproblems

Perfect example - people complaining about stores being out of kale throughout New York City before the "blizzard" this week!

#crapsuperpowers

We want to thank some of our coworkers for coming up with these: knowing where to stand on the train platform so you are directly in front of the door when it stops; being able to tell the difference between butter and I Can't Believe it's Not Butter; being able to play "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon" with any name, celebrity or average Joe.

#TBT

For our #tbt, we pay homage to the name necklace that started it all (and the television character who made it popular again)!

Carrie Bradshaw Wears a Name Necklace
Thank you Carrie Bradshaw for bringing back this fun, personalized jewelry trend! We simply love it!


#fail

Remember how we mentioned that stores were out of kale, well they weren't out of batteries and water. So had the blizzard actually been a big deal, you'd have leafy greens but no water or working flashlights.

#whyimsingle

Someone told us they are single because they have meaningful conversations with their dog...and the dog talks back.

#sorrynotsorry

#sorrynotsorry MyNameNecklace has the best selection of personalized jewelry found anywhere!

With the Super Bowl this weekend, it is the perfect chance to perfect your use of hastags! Which popular ones are you going to use? We are liking #deflategate, #lob, and #seabelieve. Who are you rooting for? Show it with a hashtag!

8 Successful Penny Pinching Tips for Valentine's Day on a Budget

Here's a question for you - how much do you typically spend on Valentine's Day? There are the flowers (cha-ching), chocolates (cha-ching), and of course a special Valentine's Day gift given during a romantic dinner for two (cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching)! It all adds up  until soon the only thing coming out of your wallet are flies. But Valentine's Day shouldn't be about how much money you spend to show how much you love someone. You don't have to break your bank account just so you don't break your partner's heart - with a little imagination and ingenuity you can create the perfect Valentine's Day without going into debt.

Don't Give into Hallmark, Make Your Own Card

Everyone knows Hallmark has cornered the market in Valentine's Day cards, but you don't need to give in into the card-making machine. Go back to your grade school roots, take out the construction paper and markers, and make your own card. It will be a lot more meaningful, and so much more loved.

Small Gifts of Affection Go a Long Way

You cannot place a dollar amount on love, but a gift on Valentine's Day shouldn't cost everything in your savings account. Whether looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift for men or for women, you can find something inexpensive that still delivers the same emotional punch. And didn't you know, personalized jewelry is the best Valentine's Day gift to give!

Putting Together the Pieces of Your Love

Any arts and crafts store will have blank puzzles that you can put anything on. Create a collage of your favorite photos and spend some time with each other putting it together. As the pieces come together, you will see how the two of you are puzzle pieces that fit!

Become a Five Star Chef for One Night Only

Rather than spend tons of money on dinner for two, cook dinner at home. You can cook on your own or you can make it a team effort. A dinner cooked at home will mean a lot more, because it is cooked with love!

Valentine's Day at MyNameNecklace
Jewelry doesn't have to be an expensive endeavor, especially when you can find Valentine's Day gifts on sale! Pick out the perfect personalized necklace for Valentine's Day and save money! Personalized jewelry is the best Valentine's Day gift you can give!


Game Night is Always a Fun Night

Break out the wine, your favorite board game, and make a night of it. Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, or even Pictionary can be tons of fun. Invite other budget-conscious friends over, have them bring a snack, and make a fun couples' night out of it!

Who Needs the Movies when You Have Netflix

When you add up two tickets for a movie, plus the snacks (because you gotta' have snacks), it becomes quite costly! Find a great movie or have a mini marathon of your favorite television show at home! And couches are so much more comfy than movie seats anyway!

Serve Up Breakfast...In Bed

We cannot say enough about how much we love breakfast in bed, and we think your partner will definitely love it too!

A Night Under the Stars

A bottle of wine, dessert, a blanket, and a clear sky are all you need to enjoy a beautiful night under the stars. And if you can't get outside, buy those fun glow-in-the-dark stars and create your own midnight sky!

14 Reasons Why Breakfast in Bed is the Best Valentine's Day Gift. Hands Down.

Nothing says "I love you" better than satisfying, heart warming fare, especially when it is served to you in bed! There is no better day than Valentine's Day to break out the heart-shaped pancake mold and enjoy super-yummy pastries. It makes us wish every day warranted a special breakfast-served-in-bed occasion. If you need to find the perfect Valentine's Day gift, get rid of the notion of flowers and chocolate, and if dinner is already planned out, make breakfast in!

breakfast in bed
Who wouldn't love waking up to this breakfast on Valentine's Day? No one!

Here are 14 reasons to dish out a little something special the morning of February 14th for your sweetie!

1) Breakfast can be a natural aphrodisiac. Fill the breakfast tray with coffee, avocados, figs, strawberries, and some whipped cream.

2) Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. You are a hero for making sure it gets eaten.

3) You can make an amazing breakfast for little money. Unlike diamonds...no matter what, diamonds are expensive.

4) Breakfast can be "outside the box." Chocolate is served in boxes, breakfast is on a beautiful tray. 'Nuff said.

5) Breakfast is a heart-healthy meal. Breakfast is very good for you!

6) Even the calorie conscious will love breakfast in bed. Fresh fruit salad with some Greek yogurt is an amazing breakfast.

7) Pajamas are acceptable...no, REQUIRED breakfast in bed attire. No suit and tie necessary.

heart shaped eggs in a basket
Nothing says "I Love You" more than heart-shaped eggs in a basket for breakfast in bed!

8) You can satisfy anyone's palette with breakfast. Whether your significant other is a steak and eggs kind of person, or loves a  nice bowl of wholesome oatmeal with fruit, you've got it covered.

9) No gift wrapping required. Which is good because themed gift wrapping is expensive and wasteful. (You are still using the roll of Christmas wrapping paper purchased in 2007.)

10) Breakfast doesn't die. Flowers die. Flowers always die.

11) You can make breakfast in bed sexy. Get out the special china.

12) Breakfast in bed says "I'm willing to sleep with crumbs in the bed to make you breakfast." There is no stronger way to say "I love you" than dealing with a few bits of 'leftover' toast between the sheets.

13) Get waited on for one morning only. As most of us cannot afford the to pay the salary of a live-in butler.

14) The breakfast tray is the ultimate way to serve up an additional gift. See that little empty space on the tray? Fill it with a gift box from MyNameNecklace. Inside, include a beautiful personalized necklace the recipient is sure to love.
