I’m so excited to announce that I will be hosting an event this Sunday, Dec. 22nd at the new Madewell in University Town Center. I’ve been a long time fan of the brand and their timeless, classic take on style. I know it’s just three days shy of Christmas….but all the more reason to celebrate right!? There will be holiday sips and sweets and extra special deals. I’m also giving away a free holiday greeting card set for purchases $125 or more! So grab your girls and come shop with me!
I also turn 29 today, So I’m considering this my birthday party! haha. I’d love to see some of you there!
I came across Artifact Uprising a few years ago and was instantly hooked. They make the most beautiful high-quality photo books in a variety of options all using 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper. While “recycled” and “quality” don’t usually go synonymously, I promise these are some of the best on the market! (and I also just love their passion for protecting the environment). Last year, I ordered one of their mini soft cover books to document Rylee’s first year….I loved it so much I vowed to do it every year after. So far, so good. Lucky for us, AU just came out with an iphone app where you can create your own photo book straight from your iphone! You can download the app right here. It’s how I created my latest book. A perfect Christmas gift if you ask me!
And now for the fun part! Artifact Uprising is generously giving away a photo book to 3 lucky readers! Not one, not two, but three! Just use the form below to enter! I’ll choose the 3 winners next Friday, the 29th. Open to U.S readers only. (and all entrants will be emailed a 10% discount code for future orders!)
I teamed up with the wonderful ladies over at 31 Bits to join in on the launch of their brand new holiday collection, Give with Glam. Each item in the collection uses beads rolled out of recycled paper, which are then coated in holiday shades of glitter. And what’s even more special is that all of these pieces are handmade by women in Uganda, providing them with jobs and education to get out of poverty! Such a cool gift to give this holiday season.
Speaking of holiday season, how is it that time of year already!? This season will be an interesting one for us as new shop owners! As much as I generally try to avoid the crowds, we are crossing our fingers that the Lone Flag will be bustling! We opened our doors on Friday and it’s been so cool to meet new people and see the response from customers. This Ace & Jig dress I am wearing is actually available now in store….(if you are interested, we ship! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability). The online store should be up and running very soon! I’ve been a busy bee getting it ready! Can’t wait to share with you guys.
And if you live in San Diego, we are having a LAUNCH PARTY this Friday, the 8th, from 7-11 pm at the shop. I’d love to meet you!!
So excited about today’s giveaway! As I mentioned before, Van de Vort is a brand spankin new boutique right in my home town of San Diego. It carries some of my favorite labels like Stone Cold Fox, Flynn Skye, Lovers + Friends, One Teaspoon, Wildfox…..(I could keep going!) All of those pieces you see online and only wish you could try on. Well, here they are!

Everything they sell can be shipped nationwide. They are still working out the kinks on their online shop….but they list most of their new items for sale on their instagram and facebook….so be sure to check there for their latest styles! I am sure you will fall in love with them as much as I have! And if you ARE local to SD, you’ve got to check it out! Say hi to Andrea and give her a high five for opening such a rad space!
I am so excited to have teamed up with 31Bits for today’s giveaway! I’ve been a fan since the minute I heard their story.
After traveling to Uganda, founder Kallie Dovel longed to find a way to help the women who were living in poverty there. What she found an opportunity in jewelry making. You can watch this video to see how they are revolutionizing the way people do business. It’s incredibly inspiring! What started with 6 Ugandan women, has now grown to 99! Each piece of jewelry is handmade by these women using beautiful paper beads. With each purchase from 31 Bits, you are helping empower these women to rise above poverty and transform their lives!
Today, 31 Bits is giving away TWO of my favorite necklaces! The Horizon Jumble in creme & lime, that I am wearing in the photos above. And also Cloud Nine, a gold ombre beaded necklace that you will see more of in tomorrow’s post!
