Have you ever gotten so annoyed with receipts bulking up your wallet or not having enough slits for your credit cards? Do you simply just want an ultra slim, custom constructed wallet? Well then try the YaY Wallet 1.0 that’s launching on May 7!

YaY Wallet is an American company where each and every wallet is handcrafted, highly  durable and woven with elastic. Sunchea Phou, the founder of YaY Wallet, has a vision and knows exactly what she wants, and her vision runs through her budding company; all the way from design to manufacturing as well as to every employee who believes in the brand.

Phou is the type of woman who loves creating fun and functional products; I mean she has been in the fashion industry for over 20 years! All she wants to do is something that makes everyone’s lives easier. She is also the type of woman who believes in being honest and transparent in her business practices along with standing up for business ethics.

I believe that she’s on the most exhilarating rollercoaster ride and loving life right now, I mean she is an entrepreneur and has the control to create her own destiny simply by doing what she loves, how lucky! Plus, she founded this business to facilitate giving back to the community and non-profits, which must make her feel awesome! YaY Wallet partners with these non-profits to create a branded wallet with the organization’s logo and 50 percent of the retail sales will go to benefit their cause. I will absolutely be purchasing one of these awesome wallets to support these causes!

The YaY Wallet 1.0 will be available on Wednesday exclusively through CrowdSupply. These ultra slim,Photo by Jon Bebe  
handcrafted wallets accommodate two to ten credit cards with ease. They’ll even be offered in a wide variety of graphics and prints, there will literally be one for every individual and personality out there!

Personally, I think that Phou has done an excellent job enabling an efficient process through integrating design, manufacturing and distribution. The company also has an exceptional printing ability where the product will enter the market quickly and the graphics will [accurately] echo current fashion and culture trends.

I definitely can’t wait to pick up my personal handcrafted YaY Wallet 1.0 on Wednesday!  Until then, to learn more and see these fantastic and durable wallets check out the YaY website, and while you’re there check out this awesome video to see these affordable and custom constructed wallets in action!

Until next time,

I would also like to give a special thanks to Jon and Mandy Bebe for giving me the opportunity to join them in spreading the word about the YaY Wallet 1.0 launch and for all of the provided details of the launch. I also want to thank them both for the above product photos which were taken by Jon himself.

Let’s walk barefoot….!

Could you go a whole day without shoes? What if it meant you could raise awareness for BLOG3_TOMSIIchildren’s health and education? Well, you can do both! On Tuesday, walk to campus, go to work or run your errands BAREFOOT. Let those feetsies and toesies breathe for the day and help TOMS raise awareness for the children. TOMS created a video to show how they made an impact with schools, companies and people across 50 countries last year.

Help me spread the word about this amazing event sponsored by TOMS and go barefoot with me and all my friends and coworkers on Tuesday. Here in Eugene, it’s supposed to be absolutely beautiful: 72 degrees and sunny!

You can help spread the word by going barefoot and telling your followers on social media platforms such as Twitter. I actually tweeted @TOMS just yesterday about this event and they retweeted me and 20 people retweeted it along with 14 people favoriting my tweet. That is the most action I’ve EVER gotten on one tweet, it felt pretty awesome if I’d say so myself.BLOG3_TOMSI

So! I hope to see all my fellow classmates, friends, family and coworkers walking barefoot as they go about their daily lives. Help me, and help TOMS raise awareness for children’s health and education.

Until next time,

VS Goes Abroad

Lingerie, panties and bras. After hearing these words, Victoria’s Secret instantly pops into every girl’s mind. Now, ready for the exciting news? The annual fashion show is packing up and going to London! I can hear the screaming girls all the way from Oregon. This will be the first time in company history that the VS crew, models and show producers will make their way over the Atlantic for one of the most high-profile marketing events of 2014. According to Columbus Business First, VS has considered making the move across the big pond as far back as 1998, but CEO Ed Razek said the company wasn’t well enough known.

On Tuesday, Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel made an appearance at London’s flagship location, the Bond Street store, along with Razek to announce the exciting news. Just imagine how crazy girls were going when they heard! According to ‘The Big Story’ on ap.org, the event will be held at Earls Court in the fall and telecast from CBS on December 2. Get ready London; an incredible event is coming your way.

Lima believes that this is the biggest fashion show in the world, and trust me, many girls think so too. After the VS show this winter, I think it’s likely that Victoria’s Secret will be more present internationally, and I think that the company will gain much more exposure by making this big international push. In recent years, Los Angeles, Miami and New York have hosted the event, and 192 countries have broadcast it. That’s a copious amount of people watching; just imagine the pressure the models and crew have!

The VS fashion show always has the most exquisite angel wing creations, unique lingerie, amazing live performances by top entertainers and of course, the million-dollar bra. What will they come up with next? See you this winter VS!
