I love it when I get to work with a brand who is truly making a difference in the world through their company. I was recently contacted by the International Princess Project to share their Slumber Party campaign to promote awareness for sex trafficking in India. They have given women who have been victims of the sex trade an opportunity to support themselves with better than fair wages, and to heal in body and spirit and to live in freedom through creating jobs for them making Punjammies out of Indian fabrics. Some of these women have had to endure years of being slaved and mistreated. Many of the women have been kidnapped or lured by empty promises of jobs, or even sold by their own families, some even being children. It breaks my heart that this is even a reality for so many. It is such a beautiful thing to have a company like this dedicated to creating new lives for these women and bring hope into themselves for a better future for them and their children and future generations. I wish I could personally go over there and give the woman who made my pjs a big hug... but from my little corner of the world, I can share this message and this company with you, and through that more people can be reached and make a bigger impact.
I don't talk alot on here about these things, but any kind of sexual abuse has always been something heavy on my heart. It happens far too often, and the effects of it can linger for generations. You can read more about the International Princess Project here.
I remember the first time I heard about Punjammies was from my friend Katelyn a few years ago and when she told me what they were all about I fell in love.
They teamed up with Prosperity Candles, a company who helps women from regions of conflict rebuild their lives, and LVX, a vegan nail polish company, to create a fun little slumber party. My slumber party was a date night with myself (and obviously Bella)...
I love date nights with myself. They don't happen that often, but I really do enjoy them when they do happen. I made myself a cozy little reading nook by the window, made a whiskey sour, enjoyed the aroma of the handmade candle, painted my nails, read my book and my birthchart, and hung out with bella. It doesn't take much to make a good date night for me!
I think Bella enjoyed it too :)
