Introducing Shame on Jane + Contest

If you’ve been part of the Salt & Nectar community for some time now, it comes as no surprise that we have home-state pride (hello, California v. Kentucky). We believe that our journeys as moms are far from perfect and prove funny most of the time. We think accessories are the secret to making a mom look pulled together and disguise the fact that we’re still wearing the same jeans three days later or, yes, our hair is still pulled back in a “mommytail.” And, of course, we love supporting entrepreneurs, especially those who are mothers and lawyers.

So it also won’t be surprising that we love the Shame on Jane jewelry line, which was recently introduced to us. Created by former trial attorney Kim Pauley, Shame on Jane was born from her desire to have jewelry that was on trend, edgy, had a punch of levity, and reflected the experiences she and her girlfriends shared, some as brides, some as moms, some as divorcees, and some as caffeine-junkies.

Upon first glimpse, we were smitten with the cheeky phrases and sense of humor conveyed by Kim’s jewelry—the zip code necklaces would be a fun way to represent our work in Los Angeles and Paducah, the stackable RemindeRings are perfect for keeping our multitasking on track and inspiring a smile, the monogram necklaces are perfect for a Southern Lady, and it would be sweet to wear a custom Salt & Nectar charm (would making it read “@saltandnectar” be too much?). Seriously, the Shame on Jane collection is all about fun and would make a great gift for the women who make up your tribe. And what better time to honor them than this Mother’s Day? 

Shame on Jane is hosting a Mother’s Day Contest for which they have asked us to join a panel of judges. They are looking for the “next great message” to add to our RemindeRing collection. The person who comes up with the winning message will snag a $200 shopping spree on the jewelry site and the ring featuring their wise words. Second and third place winners will receive a $50 gift certificate for a little retail therapy. The contest will run through May 11th and the winner will be announced on Mother’s Day.

Enter the ShameOnJane Mother's Day Contest and Win a $200 Shopping Spree!

We know y’all are smart witty mamas, so we hope you channel your inner Tina Fey or Amy Poehler and enter the Shame on Jane giveaway contest.

The Sarahs each received sample RemindeRings to evaluate the the Shame on Jane jewelry. Neither Sarahs nor Salt & Nectar were paid for participation in the Shame on Jane Mother's Day Contest.

Really? This jewelry is kind of tacky.

We think the jewelry is meant to be fun and reminds us of the Carrie Bradshaw nameplate. You can check out the Web site, where Kim Pauley offers many more designs than what we featured to see if they're more to your liking. But we understand it's not for everyone.

I know someone who wears their twitter handle as a neckless to events, it does get attention and people don't have to ask her who she is over and over again but it is not my thing. The monogram one might be fun!

AH! I think I was a runner up! I entered "This too shall pass"! But I haven't heard anything from them. Should I contact them directly?!?!?!
