I’ve always been drawn to monograms. Part of me thinks it’s because my parents are total monogram people, and part of me thinks it’s because I’ve spent my whole life looking at personalized magnets, bracelets, keychains, etc, and searching among them for one that says “Merrick.” I’ve never found one — I know you’re shocked by that.
I absolutely love not sharing my name with anyone, but I also love personalized pieces, so whenever I find monogrammed pieces, I’m always drawn to them. This gorgeous gold “M” necklace by Paul Smotry via Favery was no exception…it was love at first sight. And it’s about a thousand times prettier than a plastic keychain with my full name stamped on it, am I right? πŸ™‚ 
Today Favery is giving away a $50 gift card to their online shop so you can buy yourself something gorgeous, monogrammed or not. 
To Enter:
This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only, and will be open until next Tuesday, November 19th, at midnight. Good luck!

  2. Stephanie says:

    I would totally buy the bird on a branch ring!

  3. I signed up, and I would love to buy the Allison Necklace by Lisa Stewart because like you, I am always drawn to monograms!

  4. Jen Baker says:

    Thanks for sharing such a fun giveaway! I love the Arizona Pendant Necklace! & I also love the carly bangle bracelet! This site is so adorable! I think I know where I'm going to be getting my future jewelry from now on!


  5. I don't own anything monogrammed but I think it's about time I do! xo

  6. I would go for the letter M as well, being also my first initial. I feel it is simple, modern, but not cheezy at all ! Thanks !

  7. well, ALL of their stuff is amazing. but i'm especially smitten by the venetian glamour green statement earrings. totally swooning.

  8. i love their silk pendant necklaces, maybe the dwell in hope one πŸ™‚

  9. So I signed up, and I'm torn between two necklaces! I'd either like the Nevada shaped necklace, or the R Monogram. The R is for Reese, my baby girl <3 Im not sure if she should wear it now being 2 1/2 month old… but at least I could wear it until she could.

  10. I am also torn between two! The, representing the state where I met my fiance and the, my wedding colors!
    Regardless. I LOVE your blog and frequently 'attempt' many of your posts. Your work is amazing!

  11. I signed up! I also share the same love of all things personalized since I could never find anything with my name either!

  12. Laura says:

    I signed up! I have been trying to wear more necklaces and a tiny skull necklace would probably help me along πŸ™‚

  13. I signed up! Love the necklace, as I just got married and I'm having a hard time getting my students to switch over to my new last name! maybe if I wear the first letter around my neck, that will help!

  14. M says:

    I'd probably get a monogram necklace in sterling silver πŸ™‚ (

  48. Okay i can't enter the giveaway since I am in Canada but I have a question about the dress. I LOVE it and would love to order it but just wondering what size you got. it looks shorter online than it does on you and I am curious if you altered it or if it fit like that off the rack? Thanks – you are beautiful!

    Truth is told, numerous business affiliations attempted to contend against this scope on the premise that pregnancy was a willful condition.
