If you’re in need of a last-minute present that doesn’t appear to be an afterthought, look no further than Onecklace, an online retailer offering personalized jewelry with free guaranteed Christmas delivery right now. I’ve actually collaborated with Onecklace in the past and I was thrilled when they reached out again this year. I still wear my “Bonjour” necklace every so often. It has held up beautifully over the last two years and the gold plating hasn’t faded. This time around, I still stayed away from having my named engraved on the necklace and opted for a holiday-appropriate “falala” with the same “Alegro” script. Not only can you personalize the word, you can select the chain style and length, and specify any special instructions. (For my necklace, I wanted all of the letters to be lowercase.) I also selected a monogram ring. A signet ring has been on my wishlist for awhile, but I haven’t convinced myself to splurge on the real deal just yet. This modern monogram feels fresh and the understated profile doesn’t compete with my other daily rings. Both items come in at under $70, making them affordable keepsakes to give this holiday season.
Thanks to Onecklace for sponsoring this post!
Shopbop’s Friends & Family sale wraps up today with code INTHEFAM25. Don’t miss your chance to save 25% on favorites like Karen Walker sunglasses or the rhinestone beauties above. I couldn’t resist snagging the star ear climbers from the Jem and the Holograms collection at Shopbop. They’re just $22.50 after the discount and an incredibly fun way to pay homage to one of my favorite childhood cartoons.* (Although, I think I’ll skip the movie.) I also picked up this “darling” jewelry tray for my dresser.
*We had to draw self-portraits in preschool and I insisted on giving myself Jem’s signature pink hair. My teacher stifled my creativity and tersely told me that I had brown hair, not pink. I also recall her telling my parents about my irreverent ways when I was picked up that day. I still haven’t forgiven her.
The air conditioner at our office has been on the fritz, giving me an excuse to wear my favorite summer dresses to work. No, they’re not the most professional, but it’s one of the perks of working in a casual office. I wore this pink frock yesterday, the first day I was able to go partial weight-bearing on my cast. I still have to use crutches, but at least I could set them aside and spend a few minutes upright on my own! It’s the little things. Three weeks down, three to go, and then I can start enjoying summer.
