New // Liberty Necklace

Ever since Carrie Bradshaw wore a customised name necklace in the Sex And The City-series, it quickly became an it-item. It's cute, it's something personal and it's the perfect way to remember someone's name if you, like me, have some trouble with that. #OopsieMoment

A while ago, I got an email from Mijn Naamketting, a Dutch website which designs and sells customised name necklaces. They're hosting a month dedicated to women and they were looking for empowering women -- that's how they called it. Me? Empowering? I'm quite honored, I must say. They asked me if I would like to be gifted a necklace with one of my favorite words. The word had to represent what it means for me to be a woman and a blogger. So, here's the story behind the word I've chosen... 

Liberty: the condition of being free from restriction or control. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.

That's what I believe in. I've always been a free spirit, looking for new ways to test my limits. It gave my parents quite some headaches and ulcers, but I'm 100 % convinced that the best way to learn about life is to live it to the fullest, mistakes and failures included. Being a woman, I often hear people say: "That's different, because you're a woman." God, how I detest it when people talk like that. As a teenager, I kept playing Christina Aguilera's song 'Can't Hold Us Down' over and over again. The cliché that men are allowed to do more than women, purely based on their gender, should be banned for all eternity. 

What it means to me as a blogger? Easy peasy. The fact that this is MY blog, MY personal space, that I can wear what I want, write about what I want... That's what I love most about blogging. No restrictions, no limits. Hell, I can even publish 10 blog posts a day if I want to. There's no one that can tell me what I can or cannot do and padapapapaaaa... I'm loving it! Sorry, lame McDonald's-moment. See? This is exactly what I mean with the above. I can even write about lame McDonald's-moments if I want to. 

Now, just out of curiosity... Which word would you pick to represent yourself as a woman (and blogger)?

  1. Such a beautiful reasoning behind you picking that word, and such a lovely reminder for you when you wear it :) I'm really not sure what word I'd use, maybe "blessed" as I have a lot to be thankful for :)

    Away From The Blue

  2. Leuke betekenis die erachter zit! Vind het zelf ook altijd héél vervelend als mensen je in een richting willen duwen met je blog (en dan heb ik het niet over privé contacten maar over zakelijke): IT'S MY BLOG :p

  3. ZO leuk!!!! Ik vind liberty echt ook een mooi woord. Ik hou ook van ambition (om mezelf te motiveren om vooruit te gaan) en gewoon freedom (dus eigenlijk ook wel hetzelfde als liberty.. ) :p en als laatste eternity... haha oke veel dus! Ben benieuwd als je hem draagt!

  4. Great!!!!!!! Love this!!!!!

  5. Great necklace! And I love the word you chose!
    With love,


  6. Amazing Blog! I am following you now!

    Hope you can follow me back! Big kiss

  7. Oh wow, coole ketting! Ik zou zelf twijfelen tussen 'hope' en 'believe', al zou die laatste waarschijnlijk het mooist staan op een ketting (: Ik volg je nu, leuke blog heb je!

    Liefs, Liese
