Shop Secrets ft. evy + ro

Hey cuties and welcome back to the blog!  I hope you’re having a wonderful month so far; I can’t believe we’re so close to Christmas already!  Today, I have an adorable, local shop to share with you and I can’t wait to see what you think!  It’s the perfect addition to all that holiday shopping we’ve been up to recently.  Keep reading to find out more!

The shop I’m featuring today is in Chesapeake City, Maryland and it’s called evy + ro.  evy + ro is a shop that’s a jack-of-all-trades.  They have clothing, they have home decor, they have jewelry… they have everything!  I came across it when I was wandering around the shops in Chesapeake City and I’m so glad I did!  Their style is very shabby chic and falls right in line with the trends that women are all about these days!

In talking with Lauren, the owner, I learned they’ve only been open for a little over a year but you’d never know it!  They have so many fun, cute items in the store, it seems like they’ve been around for years.  Lauren opened the shop after realizing she had an eye for decorating on a budget and she wanted to share that with the community; how cool!  I’d say she’s done a great job because I wanted to take home everything I saw!

When I was in the store, I purchased a hanging white, paper star for my apartment (you can see a little bit of it in the top right corner of the second photo) and I also got a string of firefly lights to put inside it.  It was extremely affordable and I’d never seen anything like it before!  That’s how a lot of their items are, cute and unique!

Another section of the store I loved was their bath and body section!  They had all sorts of sprays and lotions and soaps and they all smelled so good!  I also had to include a photo because I was dying over the lightbulb covered with the wire basket.  That’s so rustic and wonderful and I want to make one for myself!

Well, that about wraps it up for this week’s post.  I hope you’ll check out evy + ro if you’re visiting the area because it’s definitely worth the trip!  If you go, let me know in the comments and be sure to say hi to them for me!  Talk to you next week! 🙂

Jewelry Talk ft. High Point Supply Co.

Hi everyone and welcome to another post on Allison In Wonderland!  I’m here to bring you this week’s article!  Today, I’m going to chat a bit about a cause that’s been very heavy on my heart in recent years: human-trafficking.  Attending James Madison University in Harrisonburg has really brought this issue to the fore-front of my mind, being that this city has a rather large issue with this injustice, due to being located right along highway 81.  Fortunately, there is always a way we can help!

One way we can make a difference (and my favorite way) is by shopping!  Exciting, I know!  I recently came across High Point Supply Co. and immediately fell in love with the heart of the company.  As I was poking around their website, I realized that they have a really cool way of browsing where you can shop by subject, but you can also shop by country or by cause.  So, if you already have a country or cause in mind that you want to directly give to, this is your place!

After exploring the anti-trafficking section for a bit, I ended up finding such wonderful goodies!  They’re all so beautiful and you can feel good about your purchase because you’re not only helping your wardrobe, but you’re helping and supporting those who really, really need it.  In the case of giving towards the anti-trafficking cause, the jewelry is coming straight from women in India who are survivors of sex-trafficking.  Part of the proceeds go towards providing those women with jobs, financial stability, and emotional rehabilitation!

The first piece I came across is called the Journey necklace and it’s my favorite piece that I got!  It’s so dainty but it still stands out against any pattern you might be wearing.  This is one of the more simple necklaces High Point Supply Co. has and I love that it tells a story!  Some other pieces I got are these rings!  Ring are my absolute favorite accessory so I already knew I was going to love these.  The stack of 3 rings is so wearable!  The other ring is larger than I usually go for so I was a bit skeptical if I’d actually be able to keep it on throughout the day, but it was no problem at all; I barely noticed it!

The last item that I got in this package is a set of stud earrings.  Stud earrings are my favorite because they’re so easy.  They don’t get it in the way and they add such a subtle difference to your outfit!  The ones I got are called Aztec Studs and I chose to get them in the brass color.  They go perfectly with the other pieces and are such a great addition to my collection.  Another plus was, when my package arrived, all of the pieces had a little note attached of the name of the person who made it, which just makes them even more special to me!

If you’d like to purchase something from High Point Supply Co. and “shop for a cause,” put allisoninwonderland in the space at the checkout where it says “ENTER AFFILIATE CODE HERE.”  “Enter affiliate code here” will be in red ink and you have to click the sentence and it opens a little comment box where you will enter the code.  By entering this code, they’ll know that you’re one of my beautiful readers! Let me know in the comments if you purchase anything, I’d love to see!

Lastly, I’d like to give a huge thanks to my friend Leslie for taking the photos included in this post!  Check her out on Instagram at leslie_heisler and also follow High Point Supply Co. at hpsupplyco!  As always, thanks for reading and I’ll be back next week with a brand new one!
