Eyewear Inspiration: Madam Secretary

15.12.14


I've been wearing glasses since I was three, debuting many a style in my time! I think my favourites were a pair of pink glasses, the others a metallic blue shade.

My current pair of glasses are by Ray-Ban, and on my favourite show, Madam Secretary, Secretary Elizabeth McCord (played by Tea Leoni) sports a similar pair. I really love these glasses- they frame the face in a strong way, and the thick frames are totally chic. When I next need to update my prescription I'll be looking to Secretary McCord for inspiration!

Knotty Gal's Kickstarter Campaign

12.12.14

Who doesn't love a large, statement necklace that gives back? Enter Knotty Gal and their Kickstarter campaign!

As the brainchild of mother-daughter duo Nur-E Gulshan Rahman and Nur-E Farhana Rahman, Knotty Gal is the producer of one-of-a-kind knotted, handmade accessories for a cause! 
Knotty Gal’s pieces are designed by the pair and hand-crafted by Nur-E Gulshan Rahman, who incorporates intricate knots into bold, colorful, and one-of-a-kind statement pieces. Each of Knotty Gal’s necklaces, bracelets, and earrings is made from a combination of carefully selected cords and metals to produce a modern take on classic knots.  

Delightfully “knotty” by nature, the line is equally as “nice” in purpose. Knotty Gal is the result of the founders’ desire to raise funds for the Bhandari Girls’ School in Bogra, Bangladesh. Founded in 1962 by Nur-E Farhana’s great-grandfather, the institution was one of the first all-girls’ schools in the region. Today, the student body has swelled to over 1,200 girls, the majority of whom come from impoverished backgrounds.

Knotty Gal
After visiting the school in 2011 and seeing the overcrowded classrooms, lack of educational materials, and overall lack of resources, Nur-E Farhana knew something had to be done. She and her mother decided to combine their creative passions with their desire to help and create an accessories line that would resonate with knotty gals everywhere. A portion of all Knotty Gal proceeds directly benefits the Bhandari Girls’ School. 

Knotty Gal's current Kickstarter campaign will help the company to expand their efforts, allowing them to scale up their manufacturing, increase distribution and marketing the brand to a larger audience. 

The campaign ends on December 17th and backers have the opportunity to receive a number of unique Knotty Gal products and benefits as part of their donation. A donation also makes the perfect Christmas gift for a friend or loved one! Don't miss out on your chance to back a wonderful brand and individual who is committed to giving back and doing good!


Sweet Dreams with Savvy Sleepers

10.12.14

There's nothing better than collapsing onto my comfy bed after a long day of work! I recently bought a new bed and it's the cosiest thing in the world. Linens are also important for a great night's sleep and I was excited to try a luxury pillowcase from Savvy Sleepers that promises to be healthier for both your skin and hair.

Dale Janée, founder of Savvy Sleepers has created a 100% pure polyester satin pillowcases that are smoother for hair and skin, and have a  secret patent-pending pocket that can be used for hair ties, love notes, or even your lip balm. The luxurious satin has a soothing matte finish and is available in unisex shades appealing to men and women.

After using the pillowcase for one night I immediately felt rested and my hair was as smooth as when I went to bed! My sleep as definitely improved since using the pillowcase and it is so relaxing to drift off lying on satin!

If you're looking to improve your bedtime habits I'd definitely recommend checking out Savvy Sleepers and seeing how their gorgeous pillowcases can change your sleep pattern for the better.
