In a blogger’s life you have to make choices everyday. Those choices can be something like spending time with family and friends or write a “quick” post, clean the house and cook or write a blog post, watch your favorite show or write a blog post, or even when to put yourself together and beg your peeps to take pics for a post. Other times you must make more important choices such as whether to pick up products to feature (partner with companies) or not. My blogging road has been a long one with a few awesome successes and some epic failures and guess what, I’m still trying to figure out my identity! Now a days I’m busy with my full time job and thanks to maturity and faith I’ve set my priorities to where I’m comfortable with my choices and am not afraid to say no and take a breather!
I guess what I’m trying to say is that it takes time, lots of time in my case for the right partnerships to come along, so don’t sell your soul in order to “make it”, stick to your beliefs and be true to yourself because eventually the right people will find you! Lately I have been feeling very fortunate about the companies I’m working with and this here is one I’m celebrating since I opened their box!!! Let me tell you a little bit about Sole of Brasil (and I guarantee you’ll fall in love with them too even before you check out their shoes!!).
The beginning: “Over a decade ago, our love of Brazilian shoes and all things Brazil began. We knew that we had to share these beauties with women who appreciate on-trend designs and high-quality materials at a smart price point. We proudly and exclusively feature products that have been produced in Brazil…In the South of Brazil, miles away from the bustling, well-known cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, a long, rich history of leather shoe making thrives. For generations, Brazilian designers and artisans have perfected the art of beautifully crafted women’s shoes. While many in the shoe industry have ditched this sentiment for a faster, cheaper product, we choose to walk the line… very stylishly we might add..Our products have been delicately produced, expertly imported and are personally shipped to each customer. Now don’t you feel special! ” – Sole of Brasil – just a quick note to tie up with my intro: SB works with designers and smaller companies (not mass producing or using sweat shops – a big problem in today’s fast fashion), we share the same faith values (huge bonus!!) and they have a cause!!! YES I told you, the right people will come along!!! Sole Of Brasil supports women:
“THE CAUSE – WALK FREE
Every woman deserves to WALK FREE from human trafficking and abuse. With every purchase, we make a donation to the Dream Center’s Human Trafficking Program to house and rehabilitate women who have been rescued from traffickers. It’s the only program of its kind in California and we are proud to support their work. Visit http://www.dreamcenter.org/our-outreaches/human-trafficking/ for more information.”
Doesn’t get any better than this!! They are based in L.A. and every purchase comes with a little package of Sugarfina gummy bears, just another sweet touch!
Now off to my favorite pair…
Sole of Brasil – Malia by Jorge Bischoff; Miranda Frye Rings, bangle and earrings; Miu Miu noir sunnies; BCBG Max Azria White lace boho top – similar (on sale!); Rag and Bone cut offs; Risseto Ombré leather clutch.
I hope you guys love Sole Of Brasil’s story, cause and SHOES as much as I do!!
Wishing you an amazing weekend with lots of sunshine (crossing my fingers for that one!)
