Bubbles, Baubles, and an NYE Round-UP

I'm a little sad to see 2016 go, but always get excited about the promise of a new year!  There are some great ways for you to bring in 2017 if you live in Charleston, as seen HERE on my NYE round-up for skirt! magazine.  Once you figure out what your plans are, might I suggest focusing on the next important tasks at hand: what to wear and what to serve. 

Best NYE Baubles

Accessorizing something you already own is way more fun than getting a glittery dress that will just stay in your closet the rest of the year. These earrings are all $36- $70, and some are an extra 25% off!

Pictured (Top to bottom, L-R): Vanessa Mooney Tassel Drop, $45 // Baublebar gray crispin earrings, $48 // BaubleBar pink gem piñata tassel (extra 25% off!), $38 // Candy Shop Vintage Champagne Coupe Earrings, $68 // Baublebar yellow ombre piñata drop (extra 25% off!), $36 // Candy Shop Vintage 3-strand rice bead earrings, $68 


Best NYE Bubbles:

You've already heard me rant about One Hope Wine.  The best part about them is that 50% of all profits from the wine go to various charities.  Another great thing about my favorite of their varietals, the sparkling brut, is that it is on sale through 12/31!  I would order ASAP if you need it for your NYE festivities (a perfect hostess gift!); those glitter bottles have been selling out!

Brut Sparkling Wine, $16.10 thru Dec 31 // Brut Sparkling Wine Glitter Bottle, $59 //                     $5 shipping with proceeds providing meals to hungry children through Why Hunger. 


Whatever you do, be safe and have fun! Cheers, y'all!

Weekends & Wine: Champagne is my Campaign!

I'm loving that one of the latest trends right now is to DO GOOD.  More and more companies are popping up that are giving back, even right here in Charleston.  Ibu supports world wide female artisans who are often otherwise undervalued for their work & Be The Change Boutique offers clothing and accessories that all give back in some way.  While many of their products give a percentage to various causes, others use profits to teach new skills to women so they can support themselves.  Both stores carry a variety of clothing, jewelry, & home accessories,  so check out their online stores and physical storefronts if you're in Charleston. 

Who wouldn't prefer to make a "purchase with a purpose"  (the mantra of Be The Change) if they had the option?  That's why I was immediately hooked on One Hope Wine when I discovered them through my co-host at a local market.  Not only was each varietal delicious (it's actually Robert Mondavi wine), but 50% of profits from each bottle get donated to charity!  Each varietal is associated with a different cause (brut puchases support Why Hunger to feed children, and cabernet sales help provide ABA therapy to children with autism).  I decided to become a rep for them in January, which was kind of a no-brainer; I can get an awesome discount on great wine while still supporting charities.  Plus, if I can spread the word about One Hope, a simple thing like drinking wine can make an impact for many people.  You could buy a bottle of Veuve to congratulate a friend or celebrate a loved one, but for the same price you can buy a glitter bottle of champagne that will give 15 meals to a hungry child. That, my friends, is why champagne is my campaign!
