When I started my blog, I knew I loved fashion and that I wanted my own creative space on the internet, but I never dreamed I would create the friendships that i've created or have some of the opportunities I have been lucky enough to experience. One of those amazing connections was with Jessica Ekstrom, founder of the inspiring Headbands of Hope.
Funny story, but Jess and I actually met through Instagram. She reached out to me about styling a headband with a braid and the rest is history. I have loved getting to know Jess, learn about her story and company, and play a small part in helping the Headbands of Hope cause. For every headband that is sold through her company, a headband is given to a child with cancer and $1 is donated to cancer research. Every girl, especially those fighting for their life with cancer deserve to feel beautiful. The headbands that these children are given put a smile on their face and provide hope at times when they need it most. Jess has made such a huge difference in so many children's lives and I am proud to call her my friend.
The newest venture associated with Heandbands of Hope is The Hope Market. The market is filled with accessories that benefit a different childhood cancer charity every month. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of all of the products and even model them for product photos. They are all seriously so cute. I love this , this and need these. Buy a headband today and put a smile on a little girls face and help her feel beautiful.
