have you heard of fashionABLE?

"Your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf creates sustainable business for women in Africa.  Our commitment as a non-profit is to the development of people — fashionABLE works with women who have been exploited due to the effects of poverty.  So, when you purchase a scarf you are providing jobs, and then we send the net profits back to holistically rehabilitate more women. This is the beauty of non-profit….
Scarves provide jobs, profits provide restoration."

I love the meaning behind what they do,
love that these beautiful scarves are made
by real women with real stories.

I ordered the Frehiwot scarf pictured on the left
(it looks like they may be out of stock right now!),
and you can view the whole collection of scarves.

SNAP! 2013

guess what?!

this girl is heading to the SNAP! 2013 conference
in just about 5 weeks!!

I am super excited about this opportunity,
although I'm also pretty nervous...
this will be my first blog conference,
so I'm not 100% sure what to expect/what to do, etc.
I can be pretty shy, but hopefully I won't be a wallflower. ;)

If you've gone to a similar conference,
what would your #1 piece of advice be?

If you'll be at SNAP, too, I'd love to get to know you better.
Leave a comment with a link to your blog so I can check it out!
