Jane and Me Jewelry Review+GIVEAWAY!

Did you think this blog was going to be ONLY about babies? Sorry if you did... but would there BE any babies without mommies??? NO. This one is for us! The ones who devote countless hours to bum wiping, itty-bitty-fingernail-clipping, booger picking, book reading, nursery ryhme singing, house proofing, doctors appointments, carpools (and the list goes on...) and wouldn't have it any other way.

But, as we all know, being a Mom can sometimes feel like just that and only that. We almost forget about our identities. We become lost in "mom"... the one that cooks, cleans, and sometimes doesn't even get a chance to shower that day.

Jane and Me jewelry was founded on the basic principal that "You Are." You are a mom, but you are beautiful. You are a mom, but you are unique. You have a purpose, you are beautiful inside and out. You are needed, and you are loved. "Even the most plain Jane has a beauty, a light, and something remarkable to impart to the world."

I am lucky enough to know the creators of Jane and Me Jewelry, and contacted them about doing this review and giveaway. I thought that it would be perfect to help remind mommies that even though it is so easy to get caught up in the sometimes monotonous (but at the same time so very wonderful and rewarding) daily routines as a mom, we are all still individuals, and all so different and unique. The hope of Jane and Me jewelry is that their one of a kind jewelry will be a reminder to become who you are. To work harder each and every day to become better than yesterday, and to be our best self today and always.

Michelle from Jane and Me sent me a few different samples to review. They are all SO different and unique in their own ways! There are so many different styles, colors and shapes to choose from. The beauty about Jane and Me jewelry is that you can build your own necklace or bracelet, as simple or embellished as you would like! I also love the fact that all of the pieces have the removable clasp, so you can interchange different charms with different style necklaces, or move your charm from your necklace onto your bracelet. Add a bauble or accessory for more detail, OR, if you just cant make up your mind or want someone to do the dirty work for you, check out the You Are complete set that comes pre-made for you. The combinations are endless! Jane and Me also has holiday charms. My mom bought me a christmas one last year as well as a Halloween cat one that I wear in October. It is so fun to collect the charms and then just switch them out for each different Holiday!

Among my favorites include the Vintage Alpha Collection (monogrammed to whatever letter you would like). This is the bronze collection, I love the look of the long, simple necklace. Mine has a letter A on it, with 2 accent jewels. I'm obsessed.

I was also sent this WAY too cute Popcorn charm and off-set crystal large link necklace. This one is going to be coming with me on a movie date for sure...and lets be honest, I'll probably be wearing it everywhere else too.

This ribbon and bead necklace is too stinking cute for words. It is perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons, not to mention the adorable yellow flower charm attached to it. So colorful, and such fun colors! Does it get any more creative than this? (I also just got word that there is a vintage lace collection that will be making its debut in 3 weeks. I CAN'T wait!)

Jane and Me jewelry is so beautiful, reasonably affordable, and is such great quality. You would not be dissappointed in ANYTHING that you chose to buy from them. Head on over and make your wish list NOW!

Now that I have you drooling, on to the giveaway!

I loved the colorful ribbon necklace and flower charm so much that one lucky reader is going to be winning one of their very own!
