Day 9 of Things I Love: Sylvia Benson Jewlery (and a giveaway!)

I've known about Sylvia Benson jewelry since the way beginning when they were just getting started. The designer, Katie Jarvis, is just as gorgeous as her designs, and walked into Monkee's one day with her goods and it was love at first sight. That was about six years ago, and ever since, I have been a fan.





Her collection and her popularity have grown over the past six years and Syliva Benson has been featured in tons of magazines. When I emailed Katie to let her know that Sylvia Benson was being featured this month as one of the things I love, she told me that she would just love to do a giveaway. 
This rhubarb necklace is just perfect for the month of love!

So, here is how you can win this gorgeous necklace:
Become a follower of Fifi Cheek
“Like” Syliva Benson’s facebook page
and be sure to leave a comment telling me how you are spending your Valentine’s Day

I can't wait to see who wins!
xoxo

  1. I liked Syliva Benson and I'm following Fifi Cheek. Thanks for the giveaway! No Valentine's Day plans here, just a normal Tuesday (so different from our life pre kids).

  2. Liked! I will be spending my V Day after a week of little sleep preparing for the Tory Burch Fashion show which will walk the runway at 9am A beautiful show to start off my morning, followed with celebrations with the design team for a successful show, and capped off with a romantic dinner with the husband. We started dating on the 14th of April in 2003. We married on the 14th of August 2010. Since our first month together we have celebrated a "Happy 14th" every month by always wishing each other "Happy 14th" and promising to always make time for each other whether it be dinner or a coffee break in the middle of the work day just to have a few special moments of time together. Valentine's Day just so happens to fall on one of my special days already. Every 14th is my Valentine's Day.

  8. I love the necklace and I love your blog! I've liked and joined both...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!! For Valentines Day this year, we will celebrate as a married couple for the first time...so, instead of dealing with the insane crowds at restaurants, I am planning on fixing a fondue dinner at home! Something fun and different, but still in the nice and quiet space we love so much. :)

  9. Fifi Cheek has been a regular on my list for a few years, by way of a mutual friend Kristin. This is the first time I have heard of Sylvia Benson jewelry and I can't wait to check it out! I have "liked" Silvia's facebook page and will be spending Valentine's day the same way I have for the past few years: Dinner at our favorite restaurant and home to book a weekend hotel reservations in a city neither of us have ever been..we celebrate in the spring in a new city every year :) Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  13. Every morning when I get into work, before I even open my email, I check your blog for a new posting. I absolutely adore your blog. I have been exposed to so many new designers, items, and ideas through your blog. Thank you. For Valentine's day, we are going to cozy up on the couch, no tv, no distractions, just talking and enjoying each other's company over a bottle of champagne.

  14. Cannot believe I was not already a follower!! I will be spending Valentine's day with my sweet husband of 6 months at our first prenatal appointment, listening to our baby's heartbeat for the first time :) Should probably go down in history as our best Valentine's Day ever. I am wishing you, your precious family and all of your readers a Happy, Happy Valentine's Day from Dallas!

  16. I'm with Melanie...it's one of the first sites I check before I've even checked out my emails at work. It starts my day off just right and puts me in a good mood (and sometimes a shopping mood)! Hadn't been introduced to Sylvia Benson jewelry before but now that I have I'm in love. Valentine's Day this year is going to be low key but it sounded perfect to me, so relaxing with a glass of wine and good movies is the perfect way to enjoy it!

  33. Hi Lindsey, I started reading your blog a few months ago and have enjoyed your posts about your pregnancy and Tilley-Gray (as well as everything else!). I have a 7 week old daughter, so it's fun to read about your experiences. I am now following Fifi Cheek and liked Sylvia Benson on FB. My husband and I will probably just enjoy a nice dinner at home with our daughter for Valentines Day. I would LOVE to win the gorgeous necklace!

  34. I'm already a follower of the blog and have 'liked' Sylvia Benson on Facebook! My husband will be traveling for V-Day, so I'll probably be curled up in front of the fire with a book. We'll cook a meal together on Friday (our idea of romance) and the hubs will make me my fave chocolate martini for dessert.

    I was asked by my adorable, (Sorry he want's to be called handsome)adorably handsome :), three-year old son Brodey if I would be his Valentine and ofcourse I accepted. We will most likely be going on a fabulous bike ride in our hometown of Chapel Hill, getting frozen yogurt on Franklin then coming home to make Valentine cookies and watch A Charlie Brown Valentine's movie.
    We have been making Valentine decorations for the house and he has been making his Valentine's for "Friendship day" at preschool so he is all set to be my Valentine :)
