Hello Lovelies, Have I shared about my incredible friends recently? These amazing women have taken ethical purchasing to the next level. They use their dollars to support what they believe in. That is our power ladies! One of these beauties does not succumb to fast marketing or fast fashion. She always looks incredible and she can walk through Target and not buy any clothing. She is my hero.
My friend Amy is gorgeous, pregnant with her second baby, and is helping all of us shop more ethically all the time not just during the holidays in her Noonday Shop
. Amy and I have known each other for over a decade. We both found our passion for yoga together.
For several years, we had an intimate little studio in my living room that met every Monday night. Some of my fondest memories of those years is our practice together. We would follow our ritual each week lighting candles and brewing steamy cups of tea to make the space perfectly hygge
. We were into self-care
before it was a trend. Amy is an incredible woman inside and out.
Here is a quick interview I did with her about Noonday
, an online shop filled with unique jewelery and accessories handmade by Artisans across the globe. Yay for unique items, but the best part for me is that they are committed to fair trade.
Bex: How did you find out about Noonday?
AFB: I work in international development. I was at a conference giving a presentation and was distracted by my colleague’s earrings. After the meeting, I confessed that I had been coveting them during the presentation. It turned out that she is a Noonday Ambassador and got me hooked on the organization’s mission to build a better world.
Bex: What made you decide to join the Noonday team?
AFB: Jewelry is such a great entry point for people in the U.S. to learn about other countries and to help on a micro-level. After working in international development for over a decade, I’ve come to believe that helping individuals on a small scale is the most effective way to lift communities. The fact that it also helps families in the U.S. who are in the adoption process is an additional bonus!
Bex: What is your favorite thing about Noonday products?
AFB: I love that everything is a little different and has a story. You can feel connected to the people who made it. Also, I love unique earrings, of which Noonday has a wide selection!
Bex: How can people shop the collection?
AFB: Lots of ways! Shop my website
anytime or contact me through the website to host a trunk show
. There are so many of benefits to hosting, but mostly its an excuse for a great afternoon with friends playing adult dress up 🙂
Ok friends. It’s that simple. Fun, friends, ethical gifts, using your money to support positive business. This is an awesome chance to source some incredible, unique gifts. I highly recommend checking Noonday out during your holiday shopping.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of these ideas. Stay tuned for a few more leading up to the New Year.
