Trades Of Hope: Founders Tour Columbus (The Roosevelt Coffeehouse)



Hey everyone--

Trades of Hope recently held their founders tour at The Roosevelt Coffeehouse in Columbus. I went with my friend Bethany (she is the cutie in the bright patterned dress looking at the merchandise in one of the pictures below). We had such a good evening hearing from Co-Founders, Gretchen and Elisabeth Huijskens and a compassionate entrepreneur, Jill Butler. 

The stories of change and hope for women living in poverty and difficulty situations were very inspiring. Trades of Hope's mission is to change these women's lives from pain and struggle into stories of hope. Many of the women have been rescued from sex slavery. Many are living in war torn countries and others are handicapped or raising handicapped children without support.  

Trades of Hopes work with the artisans and organizations that are helping women directly. They help my marketing their products. They believe that anyone at any age can make a difference and be a world changer!

The Roosevelt Coffeehouse is an awesome awesome spot to pop in and have a cup coffee. It was my first time and I had no idea the good they were doing. They are feeding people in need locally and internationally and they are working to rescue those who have been enslaved. They have good coffee for good, good for fighting hunger, good for clean water and good for fighting human trafficking. Yeah.. they're really cool. It was just a plus that their coffee is yummy! I definitely recommend this coffeehouse. 

Both of these organizations have found really awesome ways to make a difference. They're fighting injustice daily and working to be the light in the world.

Have a sweet day!

Sole-Mate

Hey everyone--

(So disclaimer, I know I said this post would be up yesterday but I overestimate what I can accomplish in a day. Sorry friends!)

Fred joined me for this shoot and we had such a good time taking these together! We are really lovin' our BEARPAW shoes!

My shoe is the women's 'Magnolia' style in brown textured woven. I'm amazed by how comfy all of my BEARPAW shoes have been. Most heels, even wedges tend to hurt my feet after awhile but I've been impressed. My favorite thing about these are their textured print, soo cute. 

Fred is wearing the men's 'Sean' style in dark brown. Fred liked that they fold down in the back so that they can become a slip-on style. The are so versatile! They're comfy and they look great on.  
& Fred made them look really great. :D :D :D

Have a sweet day!

Cotton Candy Stand

Hey everyone--

For this post, I've collaborated with Dresslink, an online fashion retailer! They have a great selection of two of my favorite trends for summer:
& 2. Retro Frames 
(I seriously love these sunglasses, they're so fun! :D :D :D And what a great shade of pink!)

Snag them for yourself on their site, everything is sooo affordable! Now, they're located outside of the US, but the shipping time was not bad at all, I was really happy with it! .. Took about 3 weeks to arrive!

Also, these are my favorite earrings everrr. I've been waiting to show them off on the blog for awhile now. They look and feel like real cotton candy. They're fuzzy and tiny and so realistic looking. I love 'em!

Have a sweet day!

The Daily Sugar x Newisland Selfie Stick

Hey everyone--

So this post is pretty special for two reasons:
1. This selfie stick is super cool!
2. I'm introducing my boyfriend Fred to all of you! & He's the coolest.

We had so much fun adventuring and playing around with this Newisland Self-portrait Monopad "selfie stick". I had no idea all the things that it could do. I didn't know that you could connect your phone to the Bluetooth and control the buttons that way, but you can! It's really awesome! It has an adjustable 180 degree head, which allows you to position it according to each specific shot. It can also stretch to be crazy long. 

So here's how you use it:
1. Before you use your stick make sure that it's charged and ready to go!
2. Pull the sides of the actual holder on the stick to stretch it and make room for the phone.
3. Place your phone in the holder and make sure it's secure. You can improve it's stability by using the orange rubber pad.
4. Press up on the button at the bottom of the stick to turn the stick on, a light will come on.
5. Go to the settings on your phone and turn on Bluetooth.
6. You will see the selfie-stick selection, pick this Bluetooth provider to connect to.
7. Adjust the length and angle of the stick for the pictures you want to capture.
8. Open up the camera on your phone.
9. Press the raised button on the stick to capture your pics.
10. Have fun and adventure!

Find it for yourself on Amazon!

Now to introduce y'all! The adorable guy in these pictures with me is my wonderful boyfriend Fred! 

I'm so happy to introduce him to all of you and I'm really excited for you guys to see him a lot more in upcoming posts! I'm so blessed to have his unwavering support, love and care with my blog and in all things. 

& He's excited for you guys to get to know him a little better too. 

We hope you all have a sweet day!
