Welcome to the Week {v.2}


1  |  A blonde & a red head. Loved spending some time with my friend this weekend!!

2  |  It’s officially winter y’all! There’s 2 inches on snow on the ground as I type and more is falling. I’m not ready for this…

3  |  Toms is officially at Target & this mug is on my wish list. I love the size AND that it donates meals to someone in need.

4  | This Friday will be my first market for Gingerly Styled & I am so excited. I’ve dreamed of doing something like this & know it’s almost real life! For all you Indy gals out there, meet me the Handmade Vintage Market! This jolly guy will be waiting for you.

While I was at the Influence Conference in September I had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca & chatting about her small business called Better Life Bags.

Better Life Bags not only makes gorgeous purses & bags, but they have an inspiring purpose! 

To give you a very brief idea of the awesome work they are doing, I snagged this snippet from their webite:

We hire women, who otherwise could not work, to work for us.  We pay them a living wage (20-25% of the total retail price) and watch them gain dignity, honor, and respect.”

You can also hear Rebecca share her heart behind Better Life Bags, small business, & social media on The Influence Network’s Podcast!

I am swooning over all this gorgeousness! And you know what? You can even design your own Better Life Bag online and pick your own fabrics and everything! How cool is that? 

In order to spread some Christmas cheer your way, I have teamed up with some of my sweet blog friends to give one lucky winner a $100 gift certificate to use towards one of these gorgeous bags!! YAY!
