I think one of my favorite things about being a blogger and having this platform is the ability to bring awareness to causes and organizations that I care about. What an honor and a responsibility I have to use my voice for others.
With that in mind, I wanted to share some Valentine's Gift inspiration with you, but not just any gifts. These gifts are the kind that spread the love - they support organizations who love on and support those in need - and isn't that kind of gift the best?
First up, I want to highlight Louise & Eleanor. L&E makes beautiful, hand-crafted clutches and bags. I personally own the Beth Oversized Clutch in black, and it's my favorite grab-and-go LBB (little black bag) these days! I've been able to get to know Megan, the founder, over the past year, and one thing I love about her is the desire she has to raise other women up with her. One way she does this is through partnering with non-profits who extend help and love to those in need. You can read more about what those partnerships are and how they work here.
Next I want to talk about Kate Spade's line On Purpose. It's no secret that I love the playful, classic vibe of Kate Spade, but did you know that they have an entire line that supports women in Rwanda? I love that they are actively doing good in a community through providing women with jobs that enable them to support their families.
Finally, what girl doesn't love a good piece of jewelry?! And with Kendra Scott's new spring line launching this past Wednesday, it's the perfect time to pick up something brand new that she'll love for spring and beyond. One of my favorite things about Kendra Scott (aside from the elegance of their simple and statement pieces!) is that they are a company who truly believes in giving back.
If you're in the Houston area, I would love to invite you to join myself and several other Houston bloggers on February 5th for a private shopping event! Kendra Scott is going to be donating a portion of the proceeds to a local adoption agency, and us bloggers will be hosting three giveaways! One will be on Instagram, so be sure to follow me for the deets! The other two will happen live in store, so if you're in the area, be sure not to miss it!
