Ted X UGA & Bene - Live by Your Vision

Posted on May 18, 2015 by Sasha Matthews | 0 comments

Our very own Michelle Blue recently presented a talk at Tedx UGA inspiring us all to live by our vision, and not just the plan. By being open, and not just living by the book, she followed her heart after a trip to Ghana which led to starting a Scarf collection that helps support the very girls who inspired her. 

Listen to the full speech here! 

 Oh yeah - Michelle is wearing our Abigail Rectangle Scarf ;)

When do you feel most Beautiful?

Posted on August 20, 2014 by Sasha Matthews | 1 comment

Beauty starts from within. We have to first believe that we truly are a work of art, crafted with no mistakes and no need for editing. If we take a moment and strip away all the comparisons, all the media and all the doubts we've ever had and really took a look at who we are and what makes us special we'll see that we have so much beauty to celebrate. Own it. 

 

When do you feel Most Beautiful?

Heroic Women - We Salute You

Posted on August 13, 2014 by Noemie T | 0 comments

Bing celebrates the amazing and heroic women of 2013 in an ad that aired earlier this year. From politician Gabriel Giffords, who survived being shot in the head to  Deb Cohan, who danced in the operating room before her mastectomy this commercial showcases these women and salutes them over the heroic anthem of last summer. 

What do you think of the list? Who do you think should have been included?

Posted on July 23, 2014 by Noemie T | 0 comments

SoulPancake "That's What She Said" features Natalie Patterson to tell us ten things every female should know. Here's a list of the cliff notes version, but trust us, you're going to want to listen to her deliver it. 

 

1. You are a reminder that magic exists

2. Learn to take a compliment.

3. When you fall in love let it be with a person who asks nothing of you

4.. Keep a few GREAT friends

5. Buy the perfect shade of red lipstick

6. Stop hiding your tampons

7. Do not apologize for being yourself- apologize when you are not

8. If you work hard- ask for a raise

9. Feed yourself kind words, chocolate, quality people, random first dates, solitude and books.

10. If all else fails, repeat the words” I am enough”

Videos Encourage Women to #ShineStrong

Posted on June 24, 2014 by Sasha Matthews | 0 comments

Pantene has recently launched an addition to their series of videos as a part of their #ShineStrong Campaign. Last year's video tackled the labels placed on women in the workplace and now we're faced with the picture of women's propensity to always apologize. What makes these videos so interesting to watch is that in some way we can relate. Most of us can think back to a time when we've either had labels placed on us by others, or remember a situation, no matter how small, that we have said "sorry" for no good reason. We love how these videos not only shine light on these issues, but it ends with these women breaking out of these labels and replaying the same situations with confident, unapologetic responses. We also give kudos to the overall message of the campaign which encourages women to "be strong and shine".
Join the discussion. Tell us what you think!.

Behind the Scenes S/S '14 Photoshoot

Posted on May 13, 2014 by Sasha Matthews | 0 comments

 

As always we had a blast at our S/S '14 Collection Photo Shoot! We were so fortunate to have such amazing people take the time out of their schedules for us. The photographer/ videographers were great, the models were beautiful, and the make up artist was on the money. Not to mention all of the helping hands we had on set. With nothing but laughs and personalities that just clicked, work just didn't feel like work.

Last month we officially launched our Fall '13 Collection.  We were so blessed to have the support and assistance of a great photographer, make-up artist, videographer,models, family and friends. When we say none of this would have been possible without the support, we mean it, whole heartedly. It was a beautiful day with beautiful people and everyone was so fun to work with. We had a great time and we're so pleased with the finished product!
