shop for a good cause

I love that I can shop for a good cause and really purchase something I’m crazy in love with when it comes to The Leakey Collection. Their tagline is “natural elegance” and that couldn’t be more spot-on. I really like to capture the essence of casual luxury in all aspects of my life. And jewelry from The Leakey Collection looks great, while also being unique, easy to wear (it’s very comfortable and light) and I did mention how it lets you shop for a good cause, right? That’s the perfect equation!

What I discovered about jewelry items from The Leakey Collection is that it’s all light and very wearable. Plus, it’s so easy to take these pieces from casual wear to professional looks. They’re very artsy, and make me feel earthy/arty and more connected to the world and the earth when I feel these pieces of jewelry. Eco friendly jewelry has never looked so beautiful to me.

save the ta tas

I first heard of Save the Ta-Ta’s when I saw actress Kristen Bell holding up a T-shirt that had the phrase. I thought it was so cute and funny! When you purchase from this brand, 25% of your percentage goes to help fight Breast Cancer.

The company has really cute items like T-shirt’s (for men women or kids), tanks, hats, lip balm, bags, bumper stickers, etc. The company sent us over a T-Shirt and a bunch of literature and bumper stickers that we’re going to slap up everywhere! So if you like to shop and do some good, then you should check out this site.

The sweetheart that is Kristen Bell likes this charity.

I will note that their t-shirts run very small. A 1xl is about a small and a 4xl ... Read More
