I've been wanting to write this post for a solid 2...maybe 3 weeks. I was convinced that I would learn how to use photoshop in its entirety before posting, but then I realized that THESE PEOPLE DO NOT NEED TO BE PHOTOSHOPPED. I also remembered how terrible I am at touching up photos.
But look at my friends! They are gorgeous!
Yes, you guys, I have friends. Stop acting surprised.
Sooo not going to lie...I'm not normally a "trunk show" person. Generally things are pretty overpriced and I feel pressure to buy things. And I'm the cheapest person alive.
So I was invited to one of Brittney's NOONDAY parties (Brittney is in the white). Of course I went because:
1) I LOVE HER
2) She puts up adorable pictures of her jewelry on instagram
3) There were delicious snacks there made by Tammy (in the pink shirt). I ate a baby sized amount of her homemade kettle corn while I was there. And when I say "baby sized", I mean that I ate a portion of kettle corn that was the literal size of a baby.
This party was not like the others I have been to. Nothing at all like them.
Except maybe that there were delicious snacks there. That's sort of a given. Although Tammy's kettle corn took me by surprise in a terrible, but also amazing way.
Listening to Brittney talk about the opportunities Noonday provides for the vulnerable has given me a heart for the company too.
Vulnerable. Meaning women pulled out of sex trafficking. Ethiopians who carry HIV. Untouchables in India.
Noonday gives a voice to them. They provide dignified jobs to the marginalized. They change lives.

I appreciate that the jewelry is for a good cause but is also really fashionable. Sometimes companies lack the latter.

I asked Brittney if I could write this post because I feel you should know about it.
Noonday is a fair trade company. It's perfect for the person who is hard to shop for. A gift always means so much more when it has meaning behind it. That's sort of how I validate the price tag too :-)
Everything comes in a cute little bag, so no matter what you spend, it's good to gift!

And of course, it's also fun to buy for yourself! I've already bought this mint necklace :-)
Pick Brittney Vogel or I will hunt you down. JK.
Noonday is a huge supporter of adoption. When you select Brittney, you contribute to her adoption funding!
Brittney just happens to be doing a giveaway this week.
Giveaway is closed this Saturday at noon!
Happy gift giving! Slash buying for yourself. Slash BRB going to go buy everything. Slash I'm not kidding. Slash I am kidding. Slash Trent threatened me. Slash everything's going on the birthday list.
