I'm so excited to share this fun giveaway with you! As I was brainstorming what to curate, I thought a bunch of items for travel would be perfect for a mid-summer treat.
Do you know of Noonday Collection? I met sweet Jessica just as she founded the company, back when we were both waiting to bring home our kids. She from Rwanda, and I from Ethiopia. What started as a fundraiser turned into a business that continues to impact globally, each and every day. You simply MUST head to Noonday's website if it's new to you (their fall collection launches next week)!
I'm having a hard time parting with this gorgeous bag (just wait 'till you see the interior fabric!) but I know whoever wins all these goodies, will let me borrow it sometime. Haha. I'm kidding (Not kidding).
Note: the pink items inside this slouchy bag are for display purposes only and not included.
Every passport needs a lovely little case, right? And this mint colored leather cover from J. Crew definitely makes traveling a little prettier.
This hooded Surrender Poncho is perfect for plane travel or hanging out once you've reached your destination! The soft fabric is so cozy and the (one size fits most) slouchy-ness is great over a swimsuit or paired with slim white jeans (or shorts with a pop of color).
Ok one more Noonday item, because it's all so fabulously gorgeous and the impact is so important: "women are empowered, children are cherished, people have jobs, and we are connected."
Can you even believe how beautiful this piece is?! Tiny little ancient looking coins and chained tassels hang from the strands. You may never want to take it off, it's so pretty!
Just in case the weather turns, this tiny little white and gold umbrella is imperative! I mean seriously...I know I had you at gold polka-dot.
These teensy heart studs are by a local jewelry designer here in Denver. I love the texture on them...they're even cuter in person!
Whether you're on a plane, road-tripping it, or even having a stay-cation, a good book is a must!
I've mentioned here and here how much I love dear friend Logan's book, Curious Faith and I hope you will, too! There's even a study guide in the back and videos on her website if you want to delve deeper!
Staying hydrated is huge during the summer, especially while traveling! This Box Appetit BPA free water bottle uses traditional Japanese Binchotan charcoal, which removes all the chemical nasties and makes tap water taste delicious!
Form and function?! Total score.
I'm a huge fan of lucite because of it's beautiful simplicity and adore this frame because you can either keep the Bonjour print inside, or display your own memory from globetrotting...and it'll be the photo, not the frame that's the center of attention!
If you're like me, you're trying ever-so-hard to keep up with the art of the handwritten note. Traveling is the fantastic time to sit over a warm cappuccino or cool glass of sangria and tell someone how much they mean to you and all the impactful things Christ is teaching you through your trip.
Whether it's to the lake an hour from your home...or to a faraway country, I guarantee God's opening your heart to something.
What a perfect segway to these Press On journals! One called Behind, and the other Forward, they are perfectly-sized to stuff into your suitcase. Getting out of my everyday routine always clears my mind of clutter as Christ opens my heart to so many things often missed in the busyness of life.
Are you the same?
These paired guides help women process thoughts and emotions Biblically, while cultivating a habit of encouraging hearts to press on in Christ. Designed initially for those who struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, worry, doubt, etc....EVERY woman who is looking to grow in Christ and in cultivating Biblical thoughts with healthy emotions, will massively grow through them!
The "Behind" journal is for dealing with hard emotional struggles and "Forward" is for storing words of encouragement.
Up where we chatted about letter writing, you may have noticed some really cute bracelets topping the notepaper! Well...these are not just bracelets. They're really a pretty way of wearing our hairbands until we need to use them!
I know...are you absolutely dying right now?! I found the instagram page for Bela Bracelets awhile ago and both little Imani and I have been crazy about them ever since ours came in the mail!!!!!! (Imani's are simply squeezed small enough to fit her little wrist)
I mean seriously...how has no one ever thought of this before?!
I hope these girls become millionaires, because it's truly such a fantastic idea. Don't we all wear hair ties around our wrists?! Now not only will they no longer cut into our skin, leaving that annoying mark... but it actually looks like a legit bracelet!
Above is what they look like without a band in them (though they come with bands included). There are different styles as well as different metal options (silver, gold, rose gold).
Rather than the winner of this giveaway receiving the above bracelets, you'll have $50 to spend in their shop! So you can choose exactly what you want!
Ok, so let's get to the details of how to win these goodies!
