My dream came true last week… I was able to marry my relationship with Great Day Houston (their amazing team Erin, Heather, Jennifer and Debra of course) and my passion to facilitate peoples dreams while inspiring others.
I did a segment all about keeping it local. I had the privilege of incorporating brands that I love and those that I have come to love into the segment. SO. MUCH. FUN.
Supporting local is a grass roots effort keeping the entrepreneur spirit and American dream alive. It's a gift that keeps giving by boosting local economy, creating jobs, birthing creativity and speaking to dreams in people's hearts.
Support local makes you a dream maker... What a beautiful thing.
Check out my Local Gifts Great Day Segment by clicking on link below. Don't forget to keep scrolling on blog to find out more about the brands i'm obsessed with and then take advantage of some discount codes during this holiday season.
Without further adieu, here are some of my latest local gift ideas for the holiday season!
This is a brand that from afar I have been obsessed with that I was introduced to by my dear friend Kelly Garcia along side her super rad equally dear "Bueno" sister Brandi. (They have a stellar website full of goody goodness BUENOSHOP) It wasn't long that I had my face to face encounter with Stashco's fine leather goods, I had to stop myself from making a fool with the drool that was trying to escape my mouth. Each piece is hand sewn with vintage tools bringing class, innovation and that ageless character. Uber Radness at its finest, am I right? This type of quality will last for generations and the best thing is the more you use the better they become.
You can catch them online or at their storefront in West Ave at Upper Kirby. Mention #greatday for 25% off up until Christmas Eve. Get on it! http://stashco.myshopify.com/
I remember the beginning stages of these delicious meal bars, its incredible how far they have come. A recent finalist in the HEB Quest for Texas Best is just another affirmation that these bars are legit!. Way to go Marianne! Marigold bars are packed full of protein, curbing that unnecessary and daunting hunger feeling that happens in the day, mid day, early evening to late night cravings. The one when you've hit your breaking point and run to taco cabana. Or is that just me? The best is that it's a complete shocker when you realize the ridiculous goodness you are eating is not your favorite candy bar. No my friends it is a gluten free no added sugar protein pack meal bar. GUILT FREE! Is that not a woman's dream come true?!
Go to http://www.marigoldbars.com/ and kick off your new year right! Yum.
I encountered Abby Preston over year ago at an event that I was styling for Lululemon. Her soft gentle way, clothed in humility, by no means masked this fiercely talented woman. She scripted out something for me and within moments I was sucked into an Abby Preston artistic obsession. All of her pieces are unique but her passion behind her work is what makes it special. She desires to have her pieces sitting in the company of greatness; families building memories through laughter, tears and "present" conversations. I believe her work will outlast her life and her pieces will be placed around tables with faces she may never know. Lord willing I hope to have a family of my own that would inherit pieces of this brilliant artist that loved so big, it was evident in everything she touched.
Check out her work at www.abbiepreston.com. For Christmas you can always inquire about commission pieces.
Chia seed extract who would have know it could do such wonders to the skin… Wow! It smells organic and feels fantastic! I've been using Chiaderm+ for over a week and my skin feels like it's bring hydrated from a life long battle with drought. Amazing local product thats kicking age's booty and activating my inner youth glow. How can you go wrong with this product?!
In my recent introduction with this beautiful brand Manoosh I instantly fell in love. The scarves are unique to anything you will ever see because its a print of an art piece on 100% Cashmere. Its literally a wearable piece of art. You can wear it or hang it no matter where you put it, its fabulous.Three generations of woman have made this dream come alive. Love that! Support a family support a dream! Find out more about this company HERE.
33 perspective is a personal journey on so many different levels, I believe I had something stirring in my heart and I finally birthed it into existence. It could not have happened without a team of amazing friends and family that supported me and helped me launch in September 2013. (You know who you are beautiful friends of mine.) The birth of 33 was one of the most life changing times of my life to which I gained perspective in every single area. Hence, 33Perspective.

So many wonderful things to be thoughtful with, happy shopping and Merry Christmas to all!
A whole lot of love,
