Feeling pretty can be a state of mind or even a feeling you get from the actions of another but one thing will always be true; Happy girls are the prettiest.
Giving back; volunteering or donating has humbled me beyond explanation and nothing makes me happier than shopping for a cause. Brands that center around philanthropic causes have always caught my eye and warmed my heart. Today I’ve partnered with Headbands of Hope to help bring a little more awareness to all of the great work they’ve been doing since 2012. Started by Jessica Ekstrom while she was still a junior in college after an internship motivated her to help “give those girls a piece of the femininity that cancer stole away”, she started with just eight headband styles. With an business plan similar to TOMS or Warby Parker’s one-for-one model, Headbands of Hope gives a headband for every headband purchased. In just four short years they have donated headbands to children battling cancer in every children’s hospital in America and with our help they can continue their mission. Please take a minute to check out their site, with over 200 different styles there’s literally something for everyone. I chose this Gold Strand Headdress and am completely in love with its chicness plus I get the satisfaction of knowing that my purchases will also benefit a little girl or little boy battling cancer.
