San Diego’s Premier Salons Partner with SEVEN Luxury Haircare to Give Back

shampoo conThe holidays should be a time of thinking of family and friends, and also about what you can do for others who are in need.  I’m happy to spread some good cheer through SEVEN luxury haircare and some premier San Diego salons as they team up to give back to our local community through Becky’s House.

This holiday season, SEVEN luxury haircare and premier salons in the San Diego area are teaming up to give back to the local community with a Season to Give campaign. For every SEVEN shampoo and conditioner set purchased, SEVEN will donate a full-sized haircare product to Becky’s House, an organization committed to protecting women and children from domestic violence by providing refuge and supportive services to achieve independence. The promotion will run through the end of the year. As we talked to various women’s organizations, we learned that one of the most common needs is full-sized haircare products. SEVEN along with our partner salons wanted to do something to give back and help these women look and feel their best as they work to achieve a violence-free life.

Below are the participating salons, including one I’ve been to recently (post here on Hairdrezzers on Fire).  I love sharing great causes like this because as a fashion/lifestyle blogger, sometimes it’s those little things like caring for yourself that can help you feel your best that count towards your overall well-being.  Cheers!

Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide!

If you’re like me, you’ve waited until the absolute last-minute to get your gift list together for the Christmas Holiday.  I do it every year, and I don’t know if I’ll ever learn to be proactive and do it earlier.

So what I’ve done is found some really cool gift ideas that are a bit outside of the norm, and only one requires actual gift wrap.  Cheers and happy shopping!

 Caffeine Crawl 2015 Tickets

Caffeine Crawl large

The Caffeine Crawl takes place January 23-24 2015, and showcases 16 different coffee houses in San Diego.  Tickets range from $23-30 per route, but it looks like you get some goodies along with your tickets.  This is a great gift for the coffee lover in your life!

Tickets include an event packet with Crawl goodies and souvenirs, admittance to all stops on your selected route which includes a drink or chocolate sample provided and determined by each shop, and short, educational presentation.

 Afternoon Tea at Mary’s English Kitchen

Marys English Kitchen from YelpI had such a wonderful time during my own afternoon tea experience at Harrods (original post here), so I have been looking for another experience to match it.  When Katie from the blog La Jolla Mom mentioned Mary’s English Kitchen in La Jolla, I thought about getting that as a gift for me and my girlfriends as a great afternoon out.  If you want to do the same, you can call them at (858) 263-4614 to inquire about gift certificates or to make a reservation.

 Duty Free City Gift Certificates

IMG_3506 (2) (1280x1280)After I won my Furla bag from Duty Free City and attended their grand opening (posts here and here), I truly feel it’s a wonderful place to spend a day with family or friends because it’s not just about the shopping, but the experience.  Gift certificates are available to give that experience to someone you love by calling (619) 621-2600.

The Sand Cloud Beach Towel

Doing Good, Does You Good: The LookmaticGood Partnership Program

DSC03797 (2) (1280x1280)
As a blogger, I love to partner with brands that have the same passion and drive that I do.  Within that passion and drive, there is also the desire to do well and feel good about it.  I love the way a well put together outfit feels on me and I make sure everything is cohesive, top to bottom, from my glasses down to my shoes.  And if this inspires someone out there to do the same to make themselves feel good, then I feel I’ve gotten my message through.

Lookmatic brings the concept of feeling good to their “LookmaticGOOD Partnership Program.”  I bought my first pair of Lookmatic glasses earlier this year (Tippi, pictured above), and they have been my “go to” pair because of the flattering cat eye style, feeling both modern and retro at the same time.  Since I’ve received numerous compliments while wearing them, why shouldn’t I share where I got them with anyone that asks so that they can find that perfect pair that fits them as well?

In the LookmaticGOOD Partnership Program, you can be rewarded for doing simply what feels good and sharing it with people you know (and even those you don’t know).  In the program as a GOOD Ambassador, not only would you be an advocate for Lookmatic’s products and services and help them to create a stronger presence online and offline in your region by sharing content on your existing social media networks and blog, but you can actively do more with Lookmatic by providing product feedback and insight directly to them, get advanced notice of new style releases and earn money as a result of your efforts!

I’m already a part of this wonderful program, so I’ll continue to share more information in upcoming posts.  If you would like to join, you can register at Cheers!
