Unicef Market Review and Giveaway

Some of you may remember the blog post I did with Novica a while back.  Well, now Novica has partnered with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF because every order on the new website directly impacts children through UNICEF's global programs. Why not shop for Dad this year and support artisans and children around the world?  Here are some great gift ideas from their site:

1. Accessories for Him:

Something like this hand-carved wood chess set from India, Representing their respective castles, modernistic chess pieces await the king's command. They align themselves for battle on a sleek board of sheesham wood and boxwood. By Khyali Ram, the chessboard folds to store the pieces in its velvet-lined interior.

3. A Painting for the Art-lover or Traveler

"Elephant on the Path" Original Watercolor from Mexico 

"The Sunset" Original acrylic painting on canvas from India

"Riverside" Original Acrylic on canvas from West Africa

One of you will win a $50 Gift Certificate to Unicef Market!  To enter, use the rafflecopter below:

5 Things I'm Wearing and Loving

Just wanted to share some of my favorite pieces that I have been wearing and loving so far this late Spring and early Summer season.

1. Coolibar is a company that has devoted themselves to creating awesome UVA/UVB clothing- great for swimming, playing, lounging, or whatever else you may do outside.  

I got these Active Swim Shorts  in black and I LOVE them for working out in- running and playing volleyball.  We have a lot of skin cancer in our family so staying skin smart is important to me!  Check out how these protect you here for more info.  Also, right now with code ACS15 you can get 15% off your purchase and until the end of May $1 will go to the American Cancer Society for each purchase.

2. This whole month has been SO rainy!  I can't even believe it.  I have needed my Charles River Rain Jacket SO many times this month.  I am loving it.  You can see more about it here

3.  Inspired by Luck Shirt- All the Above Clothing

I just love the perfect loose tee that fits and looks great and this one is a great color and has an awesome message.  In fact, all of the All the Above Clothing line has great inspirational messages!  I love the Inspired by Mother Theresa and the Inspired by Perspective Tees also.

4. Floral sandals

My sister gave me some floral sandals from Target that I have been wearing non-stop lately.  You would be surprised that they go with everything,  Here are some that I like just as much that you can currently buy from ModCloth

5. Cut off shorts

I hate spending just as much on shorts as on long jeans- they have half the fabric!!  So, lately I have been cutting off jeans that I don't love to make shorts for the summer and they are always my favorite!

Charles River Review and Giveaway

Happy Friday!  Why not start the weekend with a giveaway?  Charles River Apparel has offered one reader this adorable rain jacket.   They sent me one in the "wave" color- a really pretty blue/turquoise.  The pictures I took don't do it justice!

I LOVE this jacket!  I have worn it SO many times already- surprising for Utah weather (we don't usually get a ton of rain) and I plan on taking it with me to our upcoming trip to Jackson Hole too.  It is very soft for being a waterproof rain jacket and actually keeps me pretty warm too!  They have SO many colors I love- it was hard to pick one!  These are a few that I was trying to choose between:

And they even have more colors!  Go see!
