What I'm doing when I'm not blogging here

Good morning! Today is a beautiful day so let's not take it for granted!

Today, I want to share something you may not know about me!

 I write for 4 other blogs/websites as well as Vintage Romance.

Eeek! I know trust me... how do I even have time you ask?
Well I don't but, I make time and I'm still alive! 


You can check out my other personal blog/non profit  Beautiful Love Project   If you are looking for great motivation, finding purpose and a great cause for uplifting mankind's self worth then check out it out HERE.
www.BeautifulLoveProject.com  This is truly my heart!

I also write for www.verifiedmom.com as a Verified Mom! It's a great mommy blog and it's just real moms with real feelings that anyone can relate to. Sometimes motherhood isn't glamorous at all and I like to tell the truth and not sugar coat the hard moments.

Another blog I write for is www.girlsofgodsheart.blogspot.com. It's 4 women (me included) that talk about our personal journey's with Jesus. The ups and down of life on this path God has planned for us.

Besides being a stay at home mom & Vintage Romance blogger I am the Styling Director for Carlet Edmonds which is a fabulous accessory company focusing on scarves right now!
I am on the far right, gold scarf!

Here we are skyping an amazing company called Rags 2 Riches and are co branding with them to design purses! Check them out. The story is amazing!

Rags2Riches Inc. is a for-profit social enterprise based in Manila, Philippines, creating eco-ethical fashion and home accessories out of up cycled scrap cloth, organic materials and indigenous fabrics by working with artisans (mostly women) living in the poor communities across the country. Rags2Riches’ philosophy stands upon its four bottom lines: People, Profit, Planet and Positive Influence.
The eco-ethical business model originated in 2007 in Payatas, one of the Philippines’ largest dumpsites and home to half a million people. An informal cottage industry of rug-weavers grew from the many women who developed a means to earn a living by scavenging the waste to find and recycle scrap pieces of fabric so that they could participate in handicraft production like rug and rag weaving, while taking care of their children at home. Over time, the industry became exploited by a series of middlemen who controlled both the supply of scrap fabric and the women’s access to the market, which created an unfair value chain for the women who at the end of the day earned only pennies per finished product or less than .20 cents USD per day.
Rags2Riches Inc. was created to provide these artisans with fair access to the market and the formal economy, as well as with additional skills-based, financial and health training so that they can maximize their career potential and take steps towards long-term financial and personal well-being. R2R integrated a design solution by partnering with well-known infuential fashion designers like Rajo Laurel, Amina Aranaz-Alunan, Olivia d’Aboville and Oliver Tolentino turning scrap materials into fashion handbags. After four years, R2R has already trained 800 artisans across 21 communities in the Metro Manila area and continues to expand its social impact and eco-ethical footprint in the country.
The Rolex Foundation in Switzerland selected Rags2Riches Inc. founder-partner and current CEO, Reese Fernandez-Ruiz, as one of the five inaugural Rolex Young Laureates. In 2010, Rags2Riches linked up with its current investor-partner, Liechtenstein Global Trust Venture Philanthropy (LGT VP).

I get to be up close and personal with the Carlet Edmonds designer/CEO and help her with everything. The funnest part? I get to style outfits, go to photoshoots, help design and travel all over the world doing it!
The best part? This is a HUGE launching pad for my jewelry line! You can find my jewelry on facebook HERE and shop HERE.

I am elbows deep getting everything prepared for an upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 photoshoot!
SO now I'm off to gather outfits, find hair & makeup inspiration and blog everywhere else and I will be back Monday!
Tootles til then! XOXO

Love! Love scarves too. Not sure if you knew this but your site URL is wrong on the SITS comment love form, just in case you aren't seeing the traffic you were hoping for.

Love your blog!

Wow, you ARE busy! I get it, though, because I am too. When you love something, you find the time...even when there really isn't any. I look forward to browsing your blog!
