Day of the Girl at BLUME!

meet blume day of the girl malala fund

Just wanted to quickly pop on to let you guys know about a company I love, supporting a cause I ALSO love.

Blume offers safe, sustainable period products and lets you build a customizable box with everything you need to make your time of the month more bearable. You start with the base box that works for you. Choose your products, add-ons, and the frequency. They take care of the rest.

And the Malala Fund is an international, non-profit organization that fights for girls’ education. It was founded by Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, and her father, Ziauddin.

[You can read more about Malala’s story in THIS POST.]

Today, Blume is donating ALL profits to the Malala Fund in honor of Day of the Girl, so head over to www.meetblume.com to help make a difference. Boxes start at $11/month (and I especially love their PMS oil).

mid-week round-up

afternoon-sunset

Hi friends! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve been a bit M.I.A. around these parts. Our internet is a little on the fritz, and nothing annoys me more than starting a post only to lose internet connection for the next two hours. Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon. Another reason for my absence? A little Thanksgiving vacay in St. Pete! Chet and I drove up to spend some time with my mom and sister for the holiday weekend. We had a wonderful dinner at Bella Brava, played a few rounds of shuffle board, enjoyed some lovely parks….and watched ALL of the Gilmore Girls revival. All in all, a very productive trip! I hope y’all had similarly magnificent weekends. Now, enjoy a little mid-week pick-me-up in the way of one dozen links…
