glamjulz Mother's Day Bracelet - Helping Dress for Success Toronto

The good people at glamjulz are hoping to help some women with their Mother's Day bracelet. You know how I love my glamjulz and rave about them every chance I get. If you have never bought anything from glamjulz, this is a great opportunity to do so and help others. Below is info on the Mother's Day bracelet from glamjulz creator, Monica Graves.

Bracelet, $40
There are many reasons that I started glamjulz... but I get the most satisfaction from helping women express themselves and feel beautiful in their own way.

As you many of you know, from other charities and organizations that I work with, I love being able to give back and share my success with the people that really need it. 

Being inspired by Mother's Day and positive female role models, I came up with the idea to not only celebrate women, but also to help them... this is why I have decided to help an organization called, Dress for Success.

The mission of Dress For Success is "to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life."

and here's how you can help... 

For every one of our 2014 Limited Edition glamjulz Mother's Day Bracelets that you purchase, I will donate a piece of glamjulz to Dress for Success Toronto.

Each donation will vary from pieces such as Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings and Rings in many different colours and styles, in hopes that each woman in the Dress for Success program will have plenty of glamjulz to chose from, and that every outfit will have the perfect piece of coordinating jewelry. 

Looking beautiful, feeling strong, and believing in yourself can open many doors... and THANK YOU for your help in opening the door to success for these deserving women.

Monica Graves

Still In Luv with Miz Mooz

One of my most popular posts to date is the one I did on Miz Mooz footwear. That original post was in 2008 after a trip to New York City where I first saw the brand. Since then many people have left comments to help fellow Canadians learn what stores sold this amazing brand all across the country. Because of the popularity of that post and page views the follow up posts still get I thought it would be a great idea to showcase their Spring 2014 collection.
Since writing that first post, a Miz Mooz Canada ecommerce site has been established and any style can be purchased. If for some reason you can't find this brand at a store near you, or a colour you wanted isn't available in store, you now have a back up, and PS. take a look at the sale section. There is also a store locator section, making it easy for you to find Miz Mooz at a neighbourhood store near you.
The Miz Mooz Canadian distributor was kind enough to send me photos of entire Spring 2014 collection. There were way too many to post in my blog so I have highlighed some styles below and created a Pinterest board for the collection.
As always the colours available are amazing, everything from Red, Yellow, Blue and Coral available. There are so many styles I want I don't even know where to start. If you make a purchase we would love to know what you bought so feel free to leave a comment below or post it on the Facebook group page.  
Some photos of my fave Miz Mooz Spring 2014 styles follow below. Be sure to check out the Pinterest board for the entire collection.
