Happy Birthday, Mom & A GIVEAWAY

Thank you all for the birthday wishes for my Mom!  We had such a great day together: we met at Southpoint mall, had a delicious lunch with the BF, and proceeded to spend out entire allotted shopping time in Anthropologie.  I wanted to share a collage of pictures of my Mom in honor of her birthday yesterday!
What my Mom loves most is family.
This a picture from my graduation with Mom, Grandma & Chan
Another family picture:
Mom and her daughters at last year's Christmas
A laid back photo of my Mom and Sister
This is a very old and funny picture of the 2 of us..
...from my 16th birthday, I think!
She is so stylish!  See where I get it?
In front of a tower of Amani Beads in Africa
My mom went to Africa at the end of this Summer for 2 weeks.  She went through her church on a sort of mission trip.  You see, her church supports Amani Beads which are beautiful clay beads created by women in Africa.  Any imperfect beads get sent back to the church, the ladies (led in part by my Mom) create jewelry and other things with these beads, and then 100% of the proceeds go back to orphanages in Africa. 

I thought this was the perfect segue to today's, and my very first, GIVEAWAY!!!

Elegantees is a new clothing brand that combines fun, affordable fashion with justice for women.  Katie founded Elegantees in 2010 with the mission of ending trafficking in Nepal.  Her goal is to use the profits to go to Nepal and set up sustainable sewing employment for women rescued from sex trafficking.

When Katie contacted me, I immediately knew this was something I wanted to support.  After I checked out the website, I knew this was something my reader's would love!  Elegantees styles are super on-trend, come in a wide array of colors, and are ultra affordable (most are $20 or less!).  Here are just a few of my favorite picks:

If you love on-trend styles in fun colors and affordable prices, as well as helping others, then go check out Elegantees now and use this coupon code: OLDNEW15 (good until 12/31/2011) for 15% off your entire order!!!

What a cute tribute. I love the idea of a giveaway with heart. My fav is the Sarah tee in white. The draping is pretty and I like it paired with a high-waisted bottom.

I love the photos of the beads-your Mum is such a pretty woman! I am a big advocate for ending human trafficking so I love the concept behind Elegantees! The Mariska is my favourite style- I love the ruffled sleeves! (I just linked up to Best Form of Flattery-it's a very loose interpretation!)
