Soul Carrier Fashion with a Purpose: I am loving these bags from Soul Carrier is a unique handbag line with a powerful mission, to make a real impact on people’s lives! They include charitable giving into their business model with the desire to ultimately become a B Corporation which recognizes companies creating a better impact for the world through social responsibility and contribution. Soul Carrier is the inspiration of Jennifer Boonlorn, a credentialed designer who studied fashion and design at Parsons University. She has spent time at Oscar de la Renta, Women’s Wear Daily, American Eagle’s design headquarters as well as designed a high-end collection of hair accessories for Henri Bendel. While working on an art project for the grand openings of Barneys in Arizona, the idea was sparked to design her own collection of handbags that could be used for the greater good. Thus, Soul Carrier was born.

Beginning June 16, 2015, Soul Carrier is launching a Kickstarter campaign to promote their new line of handbags, the Conscious Intentions Collection. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these bags will benefit The Crisis Nursery, a children’s shelter in downtown Phoenix, AZ http://www.crisisnurseryphx.org/ Crisis Nursery provides children with a warm place to sleep at night, foster care, education, and much more. This non-profit organization is near and dear to Jennifer’s heart as she tragically lost both of her parents in a car accident. Although this event was life-altering, she has chosen to use her circumstance for good. This is where you come in. SOUL CARRIER NEEDS YOUR HELP! They want to create awareness of their Kickstarter campaign through widespread social media coverage with the help of people like you who love the collection and love to help kids!

I am in love with the clutch which is part of the fun rasier for the Kickstarter

Plus Size Casual Camo Pants This week was super busy the kids 1st week off of school.  The start of swim team and camps, I spent 1/2 the week in the car running my kids from pool to camp, to home,  and lets not forget the all that they forgot at home.   I feel like I did not  accomplish much this week.  I am late on fashion post this week again and getting my act together on posts, yea kind of a blogger posting fail.

This week,  I had the opportunity to see Chef Chef Marcus Samuelsson in Philadelphia with @macys @CulinaryCouncil with my blog sponsored post for my Blog Superexhausted.  My other passion is cooking.  It was a fun event very high energy the crowd was fantastic and he was charming.

It was a fun evening because I traveled in tot he city I decided a casual plus outfit was the best choice.  It was also raining.   I received the pants in my Gwynnie Bee shipment.  They were great light enough for the summer with a little stretch.
