So many unique weddings full of personal touches.   I… View Post

Site Shoutout-Little Nails

I was wandering around tumblr specifically for new nail blogs to read and found this gem called Little Nails and I am positively smitten!   I am a big big pro tiny nails situation. When I go for my monthly mani (nail art I can do, cuticle trimming not so much) I typically will cut my nails first because my nail place refuses to make my nails little! So Little Nails is really the perfect nail blog for me; love… View Post

Guest Post: Etsy Wishlist

Hey there lovelies!! Rocquelle here from Consider Me Lovely!  When Jamillah emailed me about writing a guest post, I was beyond honored (as this is my first guest post ever) and geeked, and then puzzlement took over, as I had no idea what I would write about, within the stipulations provided to ensure that my post fit the ethical standards of Jamillah and made-to-travel. Then I had a chat with her one evening, and we started talking about ethical fashion,… View Post

Above is a stunning image from The Library of Congress showing two women who stepped in during World War II. Virginia Young (pictured on the right), a widow of Pearl Harbor, her role… View Post

Where the Goodwill Goes Tour

Friends, I was incredibly lucky to be invited on a tour to the Goodwill NY/NJ headquarters in Astoria last week and it was profound! This tour truly made me love Goodwill even MORE! I learned so many things about the amazing work of Goodwill and what WE do to help their very worthy mission. Lesson 1-Nothing Goes to Waste! DONATE! DONATE! DONATE! I was really under the impression that there are certain things that should NOT be donated. I would… View Post
