Messages in Metal - #chicandstylish #linkup


Good morning lovely fashion bloggers.
How are you all?

I'm not sure I'm liking these dark evenings, just makes me want to wrap up on the sofa, watching telly whilst eating soups and stews with hot drinks - ohhh a hot toddy - now that sounds like a plan. 😉



With Christmas looming are you having trouble finding 'the right' present for someone special?  I've found just what you might like with this cute online shop.  Messages in Metal recently contacted me to ask if I'd like to share their unusual and meaningful jewellery with you.  Loving jewellery as I do, I couldn't wait to check out their site and pick something.



Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

I have a few precious pieces of gold or silver jewellery, most have been presents from hubby or the family, and all mean so much to me.  I have a Pandora bracelet and all of the charms have been given for a reason.  Hubby has always picked gifts well, and I love each and every trinket I've received.

Messages in Metal are just that bit different from the norm, here's how in their own words.


"At Messages in Metal, we believe that being different is where it’s at! We not only provide high quality products at affordable prices but we also believe that you shouldn’t have to wait for weeks on end to receive your product. Our made in Montana jewelry is all designed, created, packaged and shipped in house which means we oversee the process from start to finish and can get your words on our jewelry out the door and on your doorstep in a matter of days."



With some 12 collections there'll be a gift idea just right for that someone special, I was musing over quite a few pieces but finally chose this one sporting my name.
My choice of the Charming necklace* is available in both silver and gold plated, as are all the collections.  Luckily for you it's been reduced to $45 (just over £35), not only that, Messages in Metal have a Buy one get one 50% off discount - just use code BOGO at checkout.



Do stop over and check out all the collections on the Messages in Metal site, there's something for everyone and I'm sure you'll find just what you're after for that someone special!

Shall we checkout who's favourite from last week's #linkup?


Last week had only 39 blog links, which wasn't as many as previously, I'm putting this down to the fact having been away I'd not planned the post in advance - thinking I'd do it upon my return.  I hadn't bargained for feeling so tired after the flight and time difference.  Not wanting to stress out about doing something last minute I left it basic, this just goes to show you get out what you put in, this goes for blogging too!
So winner is … Sasha, you can read more about her style over on her blog Sasha's Daily Style.  Wearing sandals and a skirt Sasha has me longing for hot sunny weather and even though I've just returned from Abu Dhabi it seems like ages ago!




Now let's start linking up.
Here are some guidelines.
Please follow your host on Instagram.
Link up your fashion and beauty posts below - other topics allowed too!
We all like to get compliments, so please leave a nice comment when visiting a blog or two.
Also leave a link back to a Mummabstylish blog page.
You could also share the love on social media.







Thanks to Esther Ruby for taking these photos, she puts up with me changing in the car, asking her opinion and standing in awkward poses!!
See you on Monday lovelies.
Bye for now. X

  16. I don't like the early darkness either. It makes it so much more difficult to drive the country roads at night. Gorgeous dress. Love the necklace.

  19. Such a cute necklace! I love this kind of personalized jewelry and enjoyed hearing more about the company. Your linkup numbers were probably down due to it being Thanksgiving last Thursday here in the states. I don't think very many of us were doing much with our blogs that day. Have a wonderful weekend, Jacqui!

  22. Always love to hear about different jewellery brands. I'd love a necklace with my name (note to the hubster). Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday link up. I haven't done an outfit shoot for 2 weeks - very bad - so that's why I haven't been in Chic & Stylish.
