Exciting Fundraiser News + Giveaway Winner

One of the best things about owning a business is being able to give back. And that is why I am so excited to announce that Daisy Rae will hosting a fundraiser to benefit the most amazing daycare in the world, Our Little House. (read below for more info on Our Little House) Enter code: OLH at check out and Daisy Rae will donate 20% of the profit from your order to Our Little House!

As a daughter of an early childhood development teacher, I am well aware of the importance of early childhood education. Our Little House (OLH) is an non-profit daycare associated with Red Bluff High School. Meaning it is a daycare for the children of those employed by Red Bluff High School and other surrounding schools. I can tell you first hand what an amazing place it is because it is the daycare I went to as a child.

OLH’s philosophy is to help children become self confident, caring, and competent individuals. Their program is play oriented. At Our Little House, they believe “play is a child’s work” and that through play activities a child manipulates his/her environment, making decisions and discoveries, which enables him/her to make sense of his/her world.

The above statement doesn’t even begin to tell you what an amazing place OLH is. There is a special connection between all the OLH kids that is hard to describe. Every child that has gone through Our Little House has done well in school, continuing on to become a productive member of society. And many OLH kids, me included, often stop by Our Little House when in town just to say hi.

With all the budget cuts, OLH has not received the funding it needs. They can really use some help. That is why for the second year, Daisy Rae is donating 20% of the profit from October sales to OLH. How fun is it that you can shop while helping out an amazing daycare?!

To help out, just enter code: OLH at checkout and Daisy Rae will give 20% of the profit from your order to Our Little House. Thank you so much!

P.S. The winner of the Libi & Lola giveaway is Clara Cheng! Congrats!

Fact: You can never have enough clothes or shoes. Am I right? Why yes, I am!

I have over thirty (or maybe closer to fifty) pairs of shoes but you know what kind I don’t have…basic black pumps. Crazy, I know! How can I not own a pair? Basic black pumps should be the first heels a gal owns. They are a closet staple for goodness sakes. The heels I’m wearing in this post are the closest thing I have but even they have gold studs on them. So I am declaring it my mission to find the perfect black pumps to add to my closet. (I also don’t have a lot of color in my footwear so I need to add some colorful shoes to my closet too). Wish me luck in my shoe shopping!

P.S. Don’t you just love me new top c/o Oasap? I sure do! 🙂 Use code: kacieskloset to shop 21% off at Oasap.com

Rule Breaker

Y’all, I am so proud of myself for being a rule breaker and wearing white after Labor Day. You see, I’m a rule follower to a fault. I’ve never gotten a ticket, I never got in trouble at school (well, in forth grade I had to turn my card because I shoved a cupcake in my mouth but that was really just a warning). Basically I’m an angel (don’t ask my family to confirm that statement).

I’m really working on being more adventurous and spontaneous. The other day the hubby pulled into a basically empty parking lot and parked the car in the wrong direction. I told him he wasn’t allowed to park like that and then he said, “Kacie, I thought you were working on being adventurous?” So guess what…we parked the car the wrong way. How’s that for adventurous?! And now I’m wearing white after Labor Day! I’m just breaking all the rules. I wonder what craziness I will do next.

Tired Face

By the time I got around to taking these pictures last Friday, I was exhausted. It’s not that my whole body was tired, it was only my face. My eyes didn’t want to be open all the way and my mouth was refusing to give a decent smile. It looked like I was growling at the camera (you know, just showing my teeth without actually smiling). Hence why I am not looking at the camera in these pictures. Tired face is not a good look for me. The rest of the evening was spent curled up on the couch watching Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. I even managed a real smile during the funny parts.
P.S. Thank you sister for letting me borrow this skirt 🙂
