Hi, babe! Can you believe it’s Monday again? Neither can I! Last week flew by and this weekend basically disappeared. On Friday, I had my last day at my sweet job where I have been for a little over a year and a half. My co-workers made sure my last day was filled with love, cake, too many nachos & lots of balloons. I don’t think it hit me, until walking out the door one last time, that I was really going to be starting a new chapter of my life soon. It was such a bitter sweet realization. I’m thankful to have come across these great people. In addition, I wrapped up a lot of the many responsibilities that were still holding me to my undergraduate career. And I can tell you for sure, that I have never felt such relief. Now that those things are out the way, only a few more responsibilities separate me from graduation. So exciting, right?!
Anyway, I am so excited to share Trades of Hope with y’all. If you haven’t heard about them already, let me tell you a little bit. Trades of Hope is a jewelry company that works with women artisans who are in a difficult phase of life, such as escaping human trafficking, facing major health diseases, lack of fair opportunities that we have here and many other challenges. In addition, Trade of Hope is a Fair Trade Federation member, which means that the women artisans are paid a fair, living wage in their respective counties. How amazing is that? I’m all for the #WomenPower. What I totally love about shopping on the TOH site is that you can learn more about the artisans and their lives. If you check out the artisans page, you can learn more about some of the challenges that some women may face and the realities for women in various places across the world. In addition to jewelry, you can also purchase handbags, home decor and scarves made by women artisans. I personally love shopping for jewelry and gifts, as well as helping other women succeed and being a supported for them. So shopping at Trades of Hope is a total win/win for me.
Today I’m styling the Warrior Cuff, Harper Necklace & Sunburst Earrings (similar, my style sold out), all for Trades of Hope. I seriously adore each and every piece and they will easily be able to style over and over again.
