Ok first of all, when your lipstick matches your shoes, it was just meant to be! I’m really not a lipstick person but I saw this color on one of my favorite bloggers, Arielle of SomethingNavy (seen here), and thought I’d give it a try. With a black and white simple and classic outfit, it works! Unfortunately, these fun Cole Haan drivers are long gone but they are available in black and tan, which are still great because these colors match everything! They are also extremely comfortable for walking around.

The Giving Keys is a company started by actress and singer/songwriter, Caitlin Crosby. While on tour, Crosby would wear her hotel room keys around her neck. She then decided to be creative and engrave different, meaningful words on these keys. When Crosby returned to California, she came across a couple, homeless on the street. She invited them to dinner and by the end of the night, they were business partners! Crosby now employs others who have been affected by homelessness as well. Read more about the story, here!

“Embrace your word, then pay it forward to a person you feel needs the message more than you.” After a tough couple of months in my personal life last year, my sister bought me a key for Christmas that reads, “Strength” because she felt that strength was what I needed. Now, it is my turn to pass along my key of strength. I am not sure who that will be just yet but once I know, I’ll be sure to share the story!

I hope you all join in on this awesome concept and purchase your own meaningful key. Thanks for reading today! xx
