Happy September everyone!
September is always an exciting month for me because:
1) It’s my birthday month. I’ll be turning 32 next week (eek!)
2) It’s Skinny Dip‘s blogoversary. Yep, this blog is now 3 years old!
Thank you for reading and helping me grow this blog into a space that I am really proud of.
We all deserve a few pretty things and I certainly don’t believe in waiting around for a guy to buy you jewelry. So, in honour of Skinny Dip‘s three anniversary and because I love you guys, I want to give one of you a ring. Not just any ring but a silver plated engraved ring from the Marc by Marc Jacobs store on the Las Vegas Strip (located in the super fab Caesars Palace!)
While at Bloggers in Sin City, I snuck over to the Forum Shops and bought two of these rings: one for me and one for my sister. Keeping with the theme of Caesars Palace, the outer circumference of the ring is engraved with “DATUMAMORE AD DEFENDENDUM” which in Latin means: “Given in Love. For Protection” (which couldn’t be more perfect if you ask me) The ring didn’t fit my sister so she suggested I give it away to a reader.
As you can see, the outside of the ring is engraved with the phrase in Latin and the inside is engraved with the designer’s name.
FYI: The Marc by Marc Jacobs store is impossible to miss if you’re visiting the Forum Shops because it has a giant hot pink elephant parked in the window. As soon as Sara showed me a photo of the elephant I knew I had to visit the store and see it for myself! The store was full of lots of fun, bright, colourful pieces…I loved it! I’m a big fan of Marc by Marc Jacobs stuff – it’s playful, quirky yet totally wearable. I hope you guys are too!
Best part of this giveaway: if you win we can be ring twinsies!
I’ve worn mine so much that the black enamel has actually worn off. I still really like the ring and sometimes wear it on a chain as a necklace.
