Signature Kendra Scott Necklace
I am so excited! As a member of the Chapel Hill Service League (CHSL) I volunteer my time to help other non-profits and charities that focus on Women and Children. One of the major events the CHSL holds is “Christmas House”. It takes a full year to put this 1 day event together; many hours by many women. We work with the Social Workers in the Orange County NC school system to invite families to Christmas House. Last year just over 800 families were served. Each child in the family under the age of 13 receives 1 brand new winter coat, 2 brand new toys, and 2 brand new books. The parents schedule a time to shop on a set day. They arrive and one of our guides takes them around to shop. We ask the parents questions about the age of each child in their home, what their child likes, and assists in selecting items for the child. I get goose bumps just talking about Christmas House.
One thing we do through the year is fundraising. We need money to purchase the new coats, which we get on major discount from a wholesaler. A good portion of our toys are donated, but we supplement by purchasing the “it” items of the year. We also receive donated books, but again have to purchase items . This means fundraising…..So I put my ‘blogger’ cap on and reached out to local business’ and friends as to what we can do. A friend recommended holding a Give Back night at Kendra Scott. I am so excited to announce on November 9th at the South Point Mall store from 5-8 we will hold a give back shopping night. 20% of all sales will go to Christmas House. Where 100% of the proceeds go to putting Christmas House together.
So Save The Date if you are in North Carolina to come and shop. One thing we did was create a signature Kendra Scott Christmas House necklace! This necklace is $65 ($13 goes to CH)! They are not accepting online orders, but you can call the store directly to show your support and order the signature necklace. (919-813-2981) I am wearing the necklace. I think what I like best is the adjustable feature on this necklace!
I am all about bombers. This was the first one I ever purchased and love styling and wearing it. The fact that it’s reversible is a bonus, 2 bombers in 1! I recently ordered a different style that I can’t wait to share with you. Another item I am loving is these velvet mules. The rose detail on them is so elegant and totally raises the class of any outfit! This is a perfect example of dressing up a white tee and jeans. My pop is the lip color and necklace.
