Namefully Gothic Initial Necklace in Acrylic

Let's face it, I have an usual name. In North America, my name, Freda is very unpopular. (Europe is a different story on my name.) Finding anything with my name is next to impossible. I always have to go with something close, like Fred. Yep, embarrassing. Or go with an initial. Which I definitely prefer to Fred.
Namefully is a place where I could go to get my whole name put on a necklace. Yep, the a after Fred would actually be there!
Or I could go with a cool initial.
Which is what I got. And I like it!
I went onto the website and chose which necklace I wanted, and what color. Ordered it all up, and a couple of weeks later it arrived. Oh, how I love mail call!
Inside this cute jewelry bag, was this Gothic Initial Necklace in Black Acrylic.
It's the perfect size chain. And the charm initial is just the right proportion too. Wearing it, it feels light and it doesn't scratch my skin.
My only problem is the loop that holds the initial, holds onto the chain so tight it does not move. The problem there, is the clasp is off-center. You can't see it in this photo, but it is literally right there on my tattoo side almost peeking out. I would try to move the charm, but I am afraid I will break it. So, I'm stuck with it like that.
The other little thing is the charm is scratched up pretty good. That may have had something to do with shipping, I'm not sure, but the extra scratches on the surface of the charm take away from the beauty of the design. I wish you could see it in my crappy camera. 
The chain is just costume jewelry so it is not one I will wear regularly. Still I like it. I don't have many personalized items, due to the nature of my name, so it's hard not to like.
Would I recommend this particular design, probably not, but there is more than just these initial necklaces on their site, so check them out.

  1. I have a classic name, but it isn't always available because so many people use nicknames, which I dont.

  3. I feel your pain. My full name is Brittain and there is nothing with my name on it. Love the charm though! It's so pretty :-)

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.

Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.

You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
