Relive What's Hot from The Week of March 15th

Hey everyone, it is the first day of Spring! We are so excited for all that Spring brings - the sun, flowers blooming, and of course, we are one step closer to our favorite season, Summer! We hope you had fun celebrating St. Patrick's Day (and that you didn't get pinched too much)! Here is what we found exciting this week!

Make sure to tell us what you loved about this week on FacebookTwitter, and Google+!

1) SXSW is going on as we speak right now and Jimmy Kimmel is filling from Austin, TX. Watch this clip where he gets help from one popular Texas native!

2) As you very well know, we love when celebrities do lip sync battles! Did you know that now there is going to be a whole show dedicated to celebrities doing outrageous lip syncs? We are so excited to see it!

3) Our other favorite Jimmy, Jimmy Fallon had Jim Parsons on this week and enjoyed an interesting game of Catchphrase with him, along with musical guest Whiz Khalifa, and Miles Teller.

4) Ever wanted to know interesting theories about some of your favorite television shows from then and now, including Scooby Doo, West Wing, and Game of Thrones? Check out the clip below. Which theories do you believe and which do you think are bogus?

5) What would happen if video games attacked us? In the new movie coming out, Pixels, aliens misinterpret video games as declarations of war and attack the US using our favorite video games from the 1980s. It is up to a group of heroes, led by Adam Sandler, to stop the attack.

Know Someone Who's Expecting? 5 Gifts Perfect for Mom's to Be

A majority of gifts for pregnant moms-to-be usually revolve around, well, their pregnancy. However, even though a woman may be pregnant, gifts don't need to be connected to her uterus. While you may have good intentions when buying a fetal monitor or pregnancy journal, these are not usually ideal gifts for moms. Gifts for new moms should center on the mom and not just the baby slow cooking inside of them. Here are five gifts for expecting mothers that are sure to be loved and appreciated.

Gift Certificate for a Spa Day

Facials, manicures, and pre-natal massages oh my! Give the gift of a spa day for a mom-to-be. She will certainly enjoy the feeling of being pampered for a little while. If you cannot afford a full spa day, even a certificate for a mani-pedi or a new hair-do will work.

Personalized Keepsakes

While moms-to-be cannot control how their bodies expand, they can control how they rock their pregnancy look. Some pregnant moms don't always feel pretty, and a new accessory can make all the difference. And while you are at it, a great gift for new moms is personalized jewelry. You can commemorate the bun growing in her oven in a beautiful way that she will be able to have long after their child grows up and moves out.

Professional Pregnancy Photos

Find a great photographer and book them to take pictures of the mom-to-be. Even if she doesn't feel pretty now, when she looks back on the pictures, she will know exactly how beautiful she was. it is always a great way to look back as time goes by.

Basket of Bath and Body Products

Get a basket and throw in some really great products expectant mothers can really enjoy, including belly balm, bubble bath liquid, and soft smelling candles. You can also throw in some items for after she gives birth so she will definitely be set.

Home Cooked Meals

As women get more and more pregnant, the likelihood that they want to cook will get less and less. (And after the baby is born, homemade food becomes non-existent). Moms-to-be are more likely to pick up takeout than a recipe book. So what you can do is provide oven ready dishes that can be cooked quickly and ready to eat.

i love you mom, i mean it
In 9 months, this little guy will be stopping by to say hi!

Relive What's Hot from The Week of March 8th

It may only be the beginning of March, but we are already counting down to the first day of Spring! So much happened this last week - we introduced our new line of personalized lockets, and discussed the do's and don't of wedding jewelry (it is never too early to start looking). Here's what we found exciting on the web this week!

Make sure to tell us what you loved about this week on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+!

1) This week we lost an hour of sleep, and it makes us all sad (and groggy). Many people are wondering why are we still doing this, including John Oliver.

2) Those at the Maison Valentino runway show this week were treated to a surprise at the end - Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprising their iconic roles from Zoolander, strutting down the runway at the end of the show! The stunt was promotion for the Zoolander sequel, coming out in February 2016!

3) This week, Apple debuted the new Apple watch. A few people from the Buzzfeed staff went to try it out and this is what they had to say!

4) Mother's Day may be in the month of May but you should show your love for your mom all year round! We just introduced a selection of beautiful mother daughter necklaces. Why wait until May to show your mom love? Show off your beautiful bond in the perfect way - with personalized mother daughter jewelry!

Brand Spankin' New: Mother Daughter Jewelry Gift Sets

The relationships we hold throughout our lives are very special to us. And we should do nothing less than celebrate these special bonds we have with those closest to us. Currently, we are inspired by the extraordinary relationship between moms and daughters and just how strong this bond is. Even when we "hate" our mom, we never truly do, and after time, the mother-daughter bond is renewed and even stronger than before. We figured, what better way to celebrate this relationship than through special mother daughter jewelry sets.

Mother Daughter Gift - Set of Three Engraved Necklaces
It's true, the love between a mother and daughter is never-ending, show off that special bond!

To pull on heart strings for a moment, we love our moms here at MyNameNecklace. Our moms mean everything to us - they were there to help us through our first heartbreak, happily did our laundry on those weekend visits home from university, and cared about us unconditionally. Moms listen to our worries, tell us straight how to make things better, and have anecdotes that rival any crazy story we can tell.

mom is my superhero
My mom is my superhero
With our mother daughter gift sets, you can buy the perfect necklace for mom and hold on to one yourself. Whenever you look at it, you will think of her, and she will do the same. With Mother's Day here before you know it, you should get her the perfect Mother's Day gift. And nothing says "unconditional love" more than a mother daughter necklace set!

Unique Gift for Mom - Mother Daughter Necklace Set
Any mom would love to receive this necklace, especially knowing that you have the other half!

Must Have Product of the Week: Keep Your Dreams in a Personalized Locket

Lockets are timeless fashion accessories that people often wear for sentimental reasons, of just because they love the way the locket looks. Lockets are a timeless fashion statement that you can wear with your casual outfit to that LBD hanging in your closet. Inside the locket is a small keepsake, often a picture, a small note, or even a lock of hair. Today we see everything from vintage mourning lockets to the more popular sweetheart lockets associated first with World War II. At My Name Necklace we love personalized lockets because they add a little something extra to an already very personal necklace!

Mini Engraved Heart Locket in Sterling Silver
Show off who has your heart by wearing a picture of them inside of an engraved locket!

The origin story of the locket is hard to pinpoint. History tells us that during the mid seventeenth century, during the Commonwealth period, the royalist lady wore a locket commemorating Charles I. Many centuries later, the perfume locket became quite popular among higher class women.

Today, each and every locket has its own story to tell. Beneath the hinged locket door holds a special secret, memory, or hope for the future. Each locket has its own significance and is often a memento of devotion and love. You can get lockets in many shapes and sizes, with the heart shaped locket being the most popular. Oval and round lockets are also quite popular.

Large Engraved Locket in Sterling Silver
Show off your most treasured secret, wish, or memory in a personalized locket!
Choose from a selection of personalized lockets with engravings right now! They are good for all special occasions! You can get a name, an initial, or even a short message engraved on a locket. They make terrific gifts to give someone special in your life.

7 Do's and Don'ts of Selecting Your Wedding Jewelry

After you find the perfect wedding dress for your special day, the next step is just as important - bridal jewelry. You need just the right wedding jewelry to complete your ensemble, everything from earrings and necklaces to the perfect bracelets. Nothing can be left out. But just like dresses, there are a few do's and don'ts you should be aware of! 

DO start planning your jewelry in advance

Waiting until the last minute is a HUGE no-no. Do not treat jewelry as an afterthought but something to do right after your dream wedding dress has been selected. 

DO NOT overdo it on the accessories

Over accessorizing on your wedding is a huge faux pas. If your wedding dress features face, loads of embroidery, or small crystals, go light on the jewelry. If you want to wear lots of bangles, opt for a simple necklace. 

DO make your jewelry meaningful

If you have a family heirloom jewelry item that has been passed down for generations, plan the rest of your jewelry around this one item. 

DO NOT disregard your decolletage 

Your necklace should match the neckline of your wedding dress, whether you picked strapless or sweetheart, v-neck, halter, or high neck. If you are not too sure what style goes with what neckline, just go with something simple and elegant, a pair of simple diamond studs (or cubic zirconia ones) and a strand of pearls.

DO match your metal to your dress

Most brides do not think of this but different metals match different shades of white. For example, for a white dress, it is best to stick with silver shades. But if you are wearing an ivory gown, gold jewelry looks divine.

DO NOT forget about your bridesmaids

Bridesmaids need accessories too! A perfect bridesmaids gift is to give each a piece of jewelry. Bridesmaid necklaces are very popular. And you can make them even more special by getting each one their own personalized necklace, such as monogram jewelry with their initials or a name necklace with their name or nickname. Whenever they look at it after the wedding, they will remember when they got it!

And last but certainly not least, DO be yourself!

Probably the most important thing to remember when it comes to selecting wedding jewelry is to make sure the accessories reflect who you are and your personal style. If you do not like chunky, statement necklaces, go for something simple, like a monogram necklace with your new initials or a special engraved necklace that reminds you of the special day. 

Engraved Initial Necklace with Special Date
This necklace is super special for any wedding day - include your initial and the initial of your significant other as well as your special wedding date!

Must Have Product of the Week: Compass Necklace with Engraved Disc

Compasses have been used for centuries to help people direct themselves toward a specific location.

North = wisdom
South = beginnings
East = spirit/salvation
West = fullness/conclusions
