WING-ING IT: FOR THE FEMINIST

the-reception_large

Because I am a feminist….

And frankly everyone should be – not because it’s a political catch phrase – but because equal rights are so important to global development.  Today is the Women’s March on Washington and even though I am a resident of the DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) corridor I will miss it (today’s my birthday and I have some family plans).

So if you’re like me and will miss it due to obligations or travel issues, I encourage you to “Wing It”.

These pencils had me at “Michelle Obama”. But I’m a sucker for any gift that is pretty and useful.

I fell in love with the Wing this past fall when I came across a few articles discussing a members-driven, Manhattan-based multi-purpose space for women who needed a place to transition from engagement-to-engagement without having to inconveniently run home (be it across town or across the river to New Jersey).  

The Wing also hosts inspiring events and activities for the community.

So imagine my excitement when they opened up a store and it is exactly what I would have expected from such a cool place.  The items are thoughtfully curated, inspiring, and a little irreverent.

At $5 this poster makes a great (and very reasonable) gift.

So if your favorite feminist is longing to show that she and all women (and girls) can do it, consider a gift from the Wing.

PEARLS FOR SORORITY GIRLS

So excited about this set of pearls.

Because I found an awesome new e-store…

I’m a proud sorority girl and wearer of pearls – and I’m definitely not the only one.  I was having some fun on Pinterest and came across a set of pearls that featured a central blue stone.  After a little bit of investigation I found the site that sells them.

Gratia Pearl, the aforementioned site, is a veritable treasure chest of uniquely classical pieces that make great gifts for any woman who has pledged herself to sorority life (or just loves pearls).  

The site features gifts for each sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (or Divine 9) and also offers gifts for ladies who just like pretty pearls. zeta-full

 

So the next time you’re looking for charms for your favorite Greek, check out Gratia Pearl.

RESOURCE: YOUR GIFT LIST

It’s a New Year – So Get Gift Ready….

After the holidays the new year hits so fast.  One of the things that I do to get prepared is develop my personal gift list.

gift-about-town-your-gift-list

I sit down and list out my friends and family members and their birthdays and anniversaries.  I also include other memorable occasions like my sorority anniversary (which I share with my undergraduate line sisters) and even graduations if I have the date.

Writing it down helps me get gift ready early so I don’t miss the opportunity to share an important occasion.  So I’ve formatted my list and made it available for you.
