We have found a new flip flop crush, Hari Mari! The brand is an eco-responsible line that not only provides comfort but also style. Some of the features include a memory foam toe, arch support and foot-forming soles. The flip flops are also hue driven with colored straps on top of a crisp white foot bed. By using sustainable hemp fibers, reprocessed foam and recycled rubber, the line helps to reduce environmental impact and minimize its footprint! Hari Mari is a committed partner in supporting children battling pediatric cancer, giving $3 for every pair sold to help families-in-need pay for expensive medical treatments, medicines and hospital costs.

Looking for a Mother’s Day Gift? Check out Kendra Scott

730 1024 Shannon Yoachum

In May every year I find myself looking for that special gift for my mom. I am always stuck with that question, “What do I get for a fabulous woman who has everything?” With Mother’s Day around the corner, finding the perfect gift is often tough. Luckily a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting with Kendra Scott at her Austin store to chat about Mother’s Day gifts, and we have the latest scoop for you!

Kendra Scott is a girlfriends brand, with an attainable price point, making it perfect for many holidays. “The brand is something you don’t just buy for yourself. You buy it for your best friend, you buy it for your mom and grandmother. That’s what I love about our brand. Someone is getting a gift that is quality, handmade and beautiful.Enter Mother’s Day. Daughters in their 20’s and 30’s  are buying gifts for their moms from Kendra Scott. “It’s great because they love it, their moms love it and they are both wearing it. So the ‘mommy and me’ term is not necessarily the mom and the little girl but more of this young, hip daughter who is buying for her cool mom. This woman usually has a very similar personality as their daughter: they are fashion forward, they have big personalities and they like to have fun.” When thinking about Mother’s Day this year, Kendra Scott kept these qualities in mind.

They have bundled packages for Mother’s Day. For example they put together the ‘Danielle and the Elle’ as a bundle for you and your mom. “We did a little version and a big version of styles and bundled different colors.” Don’t worry, they haven’t forgotten about the dads who help out on this holiday. For younger daughters, (they made some in child length) a mommy and me gift can be bought for the little girl and their mother.

Another wonderful option for Mother’s Day is the Kendra Scott Color Bar! “I love the color bar for Mother’s Day. We are running a Mother’s Day special, if you come in with your mom anytime during the month of May you can get a discount on color bar.” They will have cupcakes and champagne stocked in all the stores, so if a mother and daughter come in together they can have champagne or sparkling cider for a fun shopping experience. “Even online, doing the color bar is a very special and personalized gift. You have selected the stones that you think your mom would love and enjoy.” What a perfect gift! You can’t go wrong with a personalized present for your wonderful mom.

We hope to have inspired you for your Mother’s Day shopping. Visit Kendra Scott online here or go to one of the stores to check out her jewels for your mom this May!

We are told over and over that skincare is the base for beautiful skin. Of course we can agree, but sometimes finding the right routine is tough. Are you constantly trying out different skincare lines looking for that perfect combination for your skin type? I know exactly how you feel. Recently I have found a new line that I adore, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. It’s official, vbeauté is now my go-to for skincare! The luxury anti-aging system, launched by Julie Macklowe, has made my skin feel wonderful. The secret weapon? The “It Kit” which is complete with exfoliating scrub, gentle cleanser, face cream, eye cream and an anti-wrinkle serum in smaller sizes for all of your traveling needs. For a girl who is on the go, like myself, the “It Kit” is my new best friend.
