31 May

I  wanted to give you all a heads up regarding a terrific event coming up this weekend, starting today Friday, May 31 through Saturday June 1st.

Did you now that for every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide the equivalent of $10 worth of food or 5 meals?

The Central & Eastern Food Bank of North Carolina is kicking off its STOP SUMMER HUNGER Campaign on Friday.

Here’s what is in store:

Help the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina kick off the Stop Summer Hunger Campaign (formerly Kids Summer Stock) to benefit the Kids Meals & More children’s programs.

Join them for The Streets at Southpoint Kickoff Event, starting on May 31 with an ABC11 Broadcast event, leading into a Kids Walk on June 1 and wrapping up with a Drive Through food drive! This is a great opportunity for you and your family to have fun and support a great cause.

Friday, May 31
ABC11 Broadcast & Cisco Can-Structure

Come on out from noon to 6:30 pm to the center court of the mall as talent from ABC11 broadcasts the weather segments LIVE!  Volunteers from Cisco will be building a model of the ABC11 logo out of cans for donation!

Saturday, June 1
Morning Kids Walk

The Stop Summer Hunger Kids Walk is a “family fun walk” inside the mall of The Streets at Southpoint. Walkers will follow the route around the lower level. For each lap completed, walkers will win a ticket for a spin of the prize wheel! There will be unique structures made out of cans and Food Bank tables along the way. Walkers can get a photo taken with Souper Can, the Food Bank mascot. Strollers are VERY welcome!

Pre-registration is recommended and the first 100 registrants will receive a FREE gift bag on event day.  You can make an online donation to the Food Bank with your walk registration and be entered in a drawing for a $100 VISA gift card!

On event day, check-in begins at 8:30 am at the Main Street entrance of the mall. Walk from 9am to 10:30 am and help stop summer hunger!

Saturday, June 1
Drive, Drop & Go! Food Drive

Don’t want to walk? NO PROBLEM! You can join in the Drive, Drop & Go Food Drive where volunteers will collect bags of food from folks in their cars as they drive by.  Simply pack a bag of non-perishable food (see the Food Bank’s Most Needed Items list for ideas) and look for thier volunteers at the Main Street Champp’s Crossover from 9 am to 2 pm.  Drop off your food and go!  EASY!

What else?

Can’t join us for the kickoff?  You can still make a donation to Stop Summer Hunger to support children and families in need.  Consider launching your own personal fundraising campaign and help even more kids this summer. Remember: Just $1 equals 5 meals!

And you can even help out without leaving your smartphone, tablet or computer! Just be sure to “LIKE” The Streets on Facebook. Now through June 2, The Streets at Southpoint will be donating a $1 on your behalf to the Food Bank when you become a new Facebook Fan!  The goal is to raise $5,000 which is 25,000 meals to feed kids all summer long!  If you already do “LIKE”, encourage your friends!

See you Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 9 am to 2 pm at The Streets at Southpoint!

GURU Holiday Fav’s Sweepstakes FINAL DAY: Madewell

21 Dec

After 12 great days, the GURU Fav’s

Sweepstakes is ending!

But I think we’re going out on a high note, with one of my all-time favorite retailers sending us off: Madewell!

I blogged about this amazing store when it opened in July. (You can read my post HERE)And to be honest, I’m just as excited about Madewell (Macy’s Wing, Lower Level) today as I was back then! I love how easily they’re able to make the layered look seem so accessible and easy to pull off.

Plus, the bold hues, colors and patterns are just so much fun to have in my closet.  Everything is very feminine and girly-girl, but not so much so that you feel uncomfortable.  It’s just the perfect balance of casual and playful, comfortable and bold, preppy and hipster.

However, the thing they are most known for, are their jeans!  Which brings me to today’s GURU Fav, the Madewell Skinny Ankle Jean, which I just about live in!  No matter what look you’re going for, you’ll find a color to suit you.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This Saturday, 12/22 at Madewell, they’re doing a special bounce-back offer for 20% off denim in the new year. (valid 1/1/13-1/21/13) So now you really don’t have an excuse for not going!

I would love to hear what you think about my GURU Fav’s from Madewell by commenting below!

Today is the LAST DAY you can enter the GURU FAVORITE THINGS SWEEPSTAKES to win a $150 retailer gift card to madewell or any one of the GURU Fav stores that I showcase on the blog!  You get to choose which one. One lucky reader will randomly win! Just comment at the end of each of my posts to enter. Remember, today is the last day. If you have not entered by the end of the day today, you’ve missed out.

Thanks to everyone who commented and I wish you all the best of luck!

Official Sweepstakes Rules can be found here: OFFICIAL RULES.

Swarovski’s Stunning New Space!

24 May

Have you seen Swarovski’s newly re-modeled space inside on the second floor by the food court?  IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL.  Everything you think of when you think of Swarovski is totally captured in the new store, right down to the perfect touch of ambiance from the Swarovski Lighting Company!  Sparkling crystals jump out at you from every angle and not just from the stunning jewelry, the walls are lined with crystals and there’s even a sparkling swan hanging on the back wall.  This store is an instant pick me up, you can’t help but to smile upon entering.

This Chandelier is from the Swarovski Lighting Company and it’s nothing short of magical.  Perfectly placed Swarovski crystals hang in a menage of intricate geometric webbing for a unique and timeless feel.  Glamorous and elegant, this piece is truly gorgeous and blends perfectly with the tone of the new space.

With all the dazzling interior comes an even more dazzling display of Swarovski sparkling jewelry, accessories, and vibrant figurines.
Celebrities are spotted more and more as of late wearing Swarovski Jewelry, most recently, Jennifer Lopez wore the  “FIT SILVER SHADE” earrings in her music video, “On the Floor.”
She also pulled a Swarovski jewelry box from her pocket during the video, opened it and put the clear “LUNAR” earrings on.
Fit Silver Shade Earrings: $155 

__

The Intervalle Bangle ($220.00) and the Intervalle Thin Bangle (165.00)  are super hot items right now!
Stainless Steel Hinged Bangles with clear crystal mesh and silver cafskin leathers adds a touch of sophisticated gloss to any outfit.
Total Statement Pieces: Bold, Beautiful, and Creative

____

Chunky jewelry is really in right now and Swarovski is carrying some of the latest trends in chunky pieces.
The Rio Necklace
$390.00
With a breathtaking, mosaic-inspired silhouette, this glamorous necklace is a real attention grabber. Hanging on a rhodium-plated chain, the geometric centerpiece glows in harmonious pink and blue crystal colors.
Ideal for parties!

The Rio All Around Necklace
$350.00
Modern, geometric, and elegant, this striking necklace enchants with its unique mosaic-inspired silhouette and cool pastel colors. Hanging on a rhodium-plated chain, it glows in Light Azore and clear crystal with Swarovski’s magnificent Diamond Touch Light effect adding extra sparkle.

Rings Galore!
A ring for everyone!  Any style, you name it, Swarovski has it!
Currently, the most popular ring at Swarovski  is the Nirvana Ring,
it comes in a stunning assortment of glamorous colors like Raspberry Flash , Light Azore, Jet Black,  Magnificent Purple, and many others!
Ranging in price from $150 –  $190 depending on the style you prefer, chunky or thin.
Give your hand a sparkle with a Nirvana Ring!

I really want to talk about the other side of Swarovski that I didn’t even know existed until this week!
THE LOVLOTS!



In 2006, Swarovski introduced the LovLots Collection with figurines of small crystal animals; camels, cats, dogs, etc.  Each year a new collection is released and this year is like no other!
These little gems have their own names and personalities to suit your own style and preferences.
I’m really enjoying the Happy Duck, Punk Duck.
$120.00
With his wild red hair and edgy accessories, Punk Duck is the bad boy of the Happy Ducks family! Shining in Crystal Satin with a Crystal Silver Night beak, he wears a nose piercing, printed skull tattoo, and rubber collar with silver-tone metal spikes. Let this cool character rock your world!

____

Now, I want to leave you with my most favorite item in the Swarovski store.

The Hello Kitty Bag

$675.00
Her adorable face shines in patent white calfskin with embroidered details. The exterior of the bag glitters magnificently in Crystal Mesh, while the interior features the Swanflower® pattern in an exclusive Fuchsia color.

 

Be sure to stop in at the new Swarovski store next time you’re at The Streets at Southpoint.  The glittery sparkles and crystalline shine will put a pep in your step all day!
