What inspires me, the Lula Roe Ana dress, and an amazing company helping those transitioning out of homelessness……..
Do you ever feel like you hit a bit of a life rut? Lately I feel like I'm on a bit of a hamster wheel. Between the alarm going off each morning at 5 am, the long days at work, making dinners, running errands………I feel like I'm missing the inspiration that I try to find in our everyday lives.
At the beginning of this weekend…….I challenged myself to make a list. A list of the things in our everyday lives that inspire ME.
Simple Things That Inspire Me:
- A warm cup of coffee (with pumpkin syrup)
- The sound of leaves crunching under my feet during a run
- Podcasts, podcasts, podcasts
- My morning call with a dear friend who lives across the country, she rides along on my commute and that 20 minute chat? Makes my day.
- My daughter's endless imaginary play…..hearing her talk to her toys and set up entire worlds for her dolls, cutest thing EVER!
- A great book (or sometimes a cheesy romance novel)
- The excitement in my students eyes when they GET something new…….
This necklace started from a simple moment of inspiration. That moment turned into a movement. And that movement? Is changing the world for each person it touches. The Giving Keys are one of my favorite ways to give back with my retail dollars (I have more of their pieces than I care to admit). Molly and I are overyjoyed to share their story today………Want to see more style tips? Check out our style section!
Now, one more thing. Molly and I are teaming up to do more than host our link up. We are teaming up to share brands that we love……brands that give back. Each week we'll be collaborating with one of our favorite brands to share the cause they support, and their amazing products. If YOU have a post (new or old) that features a brand that give back…..please include it in the link up. We'd LOVE to see it!
This week we are teaming up with The Giving Keys. The Giving Keys are…..keys. Words carved on keys, and worn as jewelry. These keys are reminders of what we need, and what we can give. The Giving Keys headquarters is in Downtown Los Angeles, and they employee individuals transitioning out of homelessness to make their amazing products.
