Girl Power: Girls Inc x Little Lux

GIRLS+INC

I’m often asked how I decide what to write about. It usually is something that I have, or love, wish I had or something that moves me. Today is a case of…it moves me.

Gunner Lux/Little Lux is a father/daughter endeavor of creating unique and meaningful jewelry. I think this may be their first collaboration and I think it’s a brilliant one…with Girls Inc.

Did you know?

  1. I in 4 girls will not finish high school
  2. 1 in 5 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse
  3. 3 in 10 girls will become pregnant before the age of 20
  4. 78% of girls are unhappy with their bodies

$5 from the purchase of each necklace will go to the Girls Inc of Greater Atlanta. If you have a special little girl in your life, consider giving her this necklace that bears such a positive message, while supporting girls that need your help. You can order one here.

BudhaGirl – Mindful Glamour

Intentions create outcomes. 

The power of positive thinking and prayer are things we teach our children. 

Quieting the mind for a few moments each day can bring us greater calm. We know all of this, but sometimes forget to put it into practice.

That is one of the key tenets that first drew me to BudhaGirl.

This is a company that is dedicated to mindful glamour by creating beautiful objects and glamorous jewelry that turn routines into rituals. Each of us has our own personal way or order of getting ready for the day or an evening out…BudhaGirl has created a fashionable, iconic line that helps you create intention, purpose and mindfulness.

Whether you choose a spiritual reminder or a touchstone that focuses your thoughts that day on guidance, clarity, friendship, family, compassion or forgiveness, quieting the mind and focusing your thoughts can set your day on the right path.

You can place your reminder in a secret compartment in a pendant or cuff (available in various colors), to keep it close to you all day long.

The crochet necklaces are new and come in a variety of colors.

Love these silk cord wrist wraps, which can also be worn as a necklace.

I’ll be ordering the stingray shagreen wrist wraps in cream and pink (no surprise) with the lotus end caps, which symbolize friendship.
I’ve been wearing my set of all-weather gold bangles day and night, thanks to my re-introduction to BudhaGirl by Dallas blogger and new friend, Albertina of the stylish, chic blog, Mimosa Lane!
I especially love how they aren’t metal, so they don’t clink and clank as I type or move about. They are also perfect for travel…you won’t be standing in the security line having to remove them. They also have them in silver!

 Kind of dying over this set of rainbow colored suede chakra wrist wraps…just $36 for the set. (Cartier love bracelet not included).

 Silver bangles mixed with the black silk wrist wrap pops against white.

These crochet rosaries are hand knitted in Mexico by a collective of retired school maintenance women. 

These are just a few of the glamorous products that combine meaning and adornment, so check out the entire line. Thanks to the team at BudhaGirl, they are giving my readers 15% off any purchases for the next week. The code is BDGPPT! So, go explore!

What’s your intention for the weekend? I’m focusing on family, friends and faith.

Great Gift Idea – Gunner & Lux

If you are still looking for a sweet little something for the girl in your life, take a look at Gunner & Lux. The original jewelry line was created by artist and interior designer, John Petersen. But, as his daughter, Riley, began to get involved, the line evolved and now there is Little Lux.
We know the kids love to play dress up or just imitate what grown ups do….including accessorizing to fit their personalities. These precious necklaces, created by Riley and her dad, are the pint-sized equivalent to statement pieces! And, who doesn’t love a statement necklace?!

 And, who said fashion was just for girls? I love their necklaces for little boys!

For the grown up girls….check out these stop-you-in-your-tracks handmade pieces.

This is the time of year to SPARKLE!!!! Don’t be afraid to stand out.
