The Lover



in·am·o·ra·ta (n-m-rät)
n. pl. in·am·o·ra·tas
A woman with whom one is in love or has an intimate relationship.
[Italian innamorata, feminine of innamorato, inamorato; see inamorato.]



I recieved this sterling silver necklace courtesy of the generous people at MyNameNecklace, who are also responsible for the famous Carrie necklace from SATC. I did consider having my own name but I definitely write a blog under that title (!) and I'm getting pretty tired of those same six letters.... I wish I could have come up with something really uber for my blog but everything I thought of sounded ridiculous...
Inamorata is a beautiful word with a beautiful meaning which I felt appropriate to hang above my heart - a direct reference to my boyfriend.
I have to ask, what would you all get if you decided to get hold of one of these beautiful silver necklaces? They make brilliant gifts, I have one for my Mum with my grandmothers name on it, Daisy. So sweet.

Sorry I ruined your surprise Mum! It's coming in the post with those DVDS I have for Dad. XOXO

I love that you chose that instead of a name, I would totally do the same

ALYSSAAA said...

i would get a necklace that said "nasukpak" because that's my eskimo name and also my grandpa's name. :)

You're extremely gorgeous!

Karoline said...

I am so amazed by your beauty.

The Lady Nerd said...

I second Karoline (and the others above me). You are such a stunning beauty. I'm imagining you shot this photo with your Nikon. How did you get the soft focus? I tried messing with a Nikon yesterday and couldn't get much depth of field at all. (Dern misplaced buttons...)

Again, such a beautiful photo to match the lovely description of the necklace. I'm grateful to see that someone actually puts thought behind a purchase rather than a simple, "oh that's gorgeous! I'll get that!" It's nice to know it has meaning for you. It makes the purchase much more worthwhile.

Probably I wouldnt have thought of innamorata for a necklace, but I think it's perfect
Appart from this, the photo is amazing, it has some kind of purple tone or something that makes your eyes even more amazing

WOW your eyes in this shot - super gorgeous xxx

Teresa said...

Love you choice of word for the necklace. That is really beautiful. I was thinking of getting a name necklace but maybe having a favorite city posted on a necklace would be a nice variation.

Have to de-lurk to say this is the most gorgeous photo! Stunning.

nice choice for the necklace. Also LOVE the new blog header. So simple and effective. I'd like to say I'd get "Napier" on a necklace, which was my grandma's maiden name, and I'm named after her, but I already have it tattooed on my foot, so that's probably overkill!

Stompface said...

holy moly! your eyes in this shot!

captivating!

i have seriously been thinking about what i would get on a necklace since first reading this post about 6 hours ago and still haven't come to a decision. i too am pretty bored by the idea of getting something with my name on it...after 21 years it does become a tad repetitive.
don't apologise for being "boring"! i went home to my sister and was like i met zanita she's so relaxed and chilled out. i myself was in the strangest mood. maybe we can meet again when im not still half drunk/overtired/hungover/running on adrenaline and you don't feel as though you should be in bed!

I've had a fancy "name" necklace for several years now and I wear it ALL the time but I love the idea of yours. such a lovely sentiment.

bleeding hearts said...
