Made in USA Monday

Welcome to Made in USA Mondays – where I’ll be exploring trends that caught my eye in small doses, but supporting sustainability and Made in USA!

I’ve been wearing my Shashi pieces SO much lately. The stud earrings and ring are in heavy rotation for me right now and I’m loving the rose gold color. I’m totally considering adding some more of their pieces to my small jewelry collection because they’re made in New York!

Happy holidays

Wishing all of you a merry Christmas and joyful holiday time! I can’t believe the year is almost over already. So I want to thank you for continuing to read, comment, and support my blog for 7 insane years!!

I wanted to write a formal post about subscribing to my blog after the demise of Google Reader –

As an avid blog reader and blogger, I admit I loved Google Reader a little too much. I’m still upset that it shut down because I’m a creature of habit and I liked how it let me explore new blogs just as much as it let me read the ones I already subscribed to.

If you want to subscribe to this blog click on this link http://feeds.feedburner.com/thrifteye/feed

What do you do with that link after you’ve click on it?

I have a few platforms to suggest

Netvibes

Feedly

EDIT: The Old Reader – I suggested this at first, but it looks like it may be shutting down already!

But you may have found your own already. I just switched from The Old Reader to Netvibes. Just feel around a bit.

You can also subscribe through Bloglovin, which is a blogger friendly platform. Click on the image below to get to my Bloglovin feed

Don’t care for ANY of those? You can always follow my blog updates on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/thrifteyefans

I just don’t want to lose touch with you guys, if you ever find that any of those platform links are not working, please also let me know so I can fix them or provide alternatives!

Things aside

I know how easy it is to get caught up in life and what not – we should feel very lucky to get a chance to live and do the things we want to do. Some people don’t get those chances. Now imagine how much more heartbreaking it is to be a child who doesn’t get those chances. I feel very proud to have a friend who is going a huge step forward and shaving her head (yes, it is a she, she is very brave) for Childhood Cancer research.

I’m about to donate some money to her fundraiser. But I’m reaching out to you guys to possibly donate anything you like. It goes to a very good cause – something to stop and think about in a moment of vanity when you realize some people don’t have hair or wont live very long
