What I Love Wednesday

This week really is starting to feel like fall to me- sweaters, boots, and pumpkin coffee have taken over my life. Hopefully I’ll get some apple picking in this weekend! Here are some things I’m loving more than pumpkin flavored everything.

#AsGoodAsGold BaubleBar campaign.

If you know me you know I LOVE BaubleBar- a frequent shopper and wearer (is that a word?) of their jewelry. BaubleBar recently kicked off the #AsGoodAsGold campaign to raise awareness and funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  Inspired by Megan Runser, the latest Guest Bartender, they are eager to spread awareness amongst the BaubleBar community. 100% Net Proceeds of Megan’s collection will be going to the LLS.  I recently made a donation and you can too through this page, you can read more about Megan’s story here on her personal site. For every unique entry on Instagram using #asgoodasgold, BaubleBar will donate an additional $1 to the LLS! Get to hashtagging!

You & Downtown Cleveland

There is no hiding it- I LOVE Cleveland. It is truly a hidden gem. And I love this video The Downtown Cleveland Alliance made. The Downtown Cleveland Alliance is the not-for-profit organization dedicated to building a dynamic downtown. They want to make Downtown Cleveland a compelling place to live, work and play (which I already believe it is…now to only find a job there).  The Downtown Cleveland Alliance works with Downtown stakeholders to increase the quality of life in NEO’s urban core by implementing diverse initiatives, economic development assistance, marketing & special events, advocacy and strategic projects.

I hope you consider visiting or if you’re local rediscovering the city!


Cleveland Key to the Cure

This past Thursday I was able to attend the Key to the Cure Cocktail Soiree & Fundraiser at Saks Fifth Avenue, Beachwood Place. An event where you can eat, drink, shop, and help out a local organization that is making local women healthier every day is a GREAT event in my opinion. I was lucky enough to win tickets from Kate at Sugar and Chiffon.


This event is to help raise money and awareness for women’s cancers. Saks Fifth Avenue, Beachwood is collaborating with Cleveland Clinic to host the Key to the Cure Cocktail Soiree & Fundraiser This event was hosted by Jason Nicholas from News Channel 5.

The cocktail party was wonderful- featuring complimentary spa and beauty treatments, live music, fall trends, and food and drinks from some of Cleveland’s best. There was an AMAZING raffle, items included a $3000 designer handbag, a $1000 Saks shopping spree, two sets of round-trip plane tickets for two, and more. Sadly, I didn’t win but I know my money went to a great cause!

IMG_4879Billy Cundiff, placekicker for the Cleveland Browns, and his wife, Nicole, were there to speak about their foundation, Colleen’s Dream. Colleen’s Dream Foundation started in 2012 and supports research for early detection and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. Colleen is Nicole’s mother who sadly passed. Colleen’s Dream Foundation’s signature fall fundraiser, Kicking For The Dream, was created by Billy as a way to bring together kickers, punters, and long snappers in the fight against ovarian cancer.

I got to bring my friend Katie along and we had a great time!
