NOTHING TO DISCLOSE

 

Living on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean means that many times, we are last on the list to have any new stores or establishments open.  So, because of this – I was quite excited to see that a new store made it’s way to the islands.  BoxLunch (a pop culture gift store with a cause) will be opening its newest location today in Aiea, Hawaii on the island of Oahu, at the Pearlridge Shopping Center.

BoxLunch will celebrate their grand opening in-store on Saturday, April 1st and Sunday, April 2nd from 12pm to 4pm.  BoxLunch offers a variety of thoughtfully curated selections of the world’s most popular licensed shirts, accessories, collectibles, beauty, home goods and gifts for everyone and anyone including the most dedicated fan to the more casual pop culture enthusiast.

What makes BoxLunch so awesome is the cause they work for.  To fulfill its civic mission of “Get Some.  Give Back”, BoxLunch will donate one meal to Feeding America for every $10 spent in-store or online.  BoxLunch is proud to support national hunger-relief efforts as well as local efforts through Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks, including the Hawaii Foodbank, Inc. which will directly receive a percentage of the donations raised at the Pearlridge Center BoxLunch Store.  It is awesome that a store newly opened is giving back to its community – right here at home, in it’s own backyard.

“We are thrilled to open a BoxLunch in the Aiea community.  Our mission is simple, sell the best product and use our business to inspire and implement solutions to help fight the hunger crisis on both a local and national level.” – Robert Thomsen, Vice President, General Manager of Merchandising and Marketing of BoxLunch.

BoxLunch retail storefronts across the country provide a way for the general public to be exposed to hunger relief and offer a means for their customers to easily give back through their purchases.  The support has translated into more than two million meals donated to provide hope to families facing hunger in the United States.

I’m excited to stop in and check out the store the next time I’m on island.  Sadly, I’m not located on Oahu, I’m on Maui – so I’ll need to wait till my next visit before checking it out.  If you are  on Oahu, I highly suggest stopping by Pearlridge Shopping Center and visiting the BoxLunch store.  Whether you are a beauty lover or someone who loves anything fun, I’m sure you’ll find a plethora of products here for the pop culture obsesses to anyone who just loves to shop.

I absolutely love the Holiday Season and to me, the Christmas season means much more than just presents, snow and jingle bells.  I love that Christmas allows us to share in giving but also in celebrating our Savior and his love.  I don’t often talk about Religion here on Honeygirl’s World, and I’m a wholehearted believer that no matter your religion, believing is seeing!

#LightTheWorld

There are several things you can do to offer service this Christmas Season.  Like I said before, regardless of your religion belief, you have the ability to serve others.  Each year my family and I work together to help serve those in need – no matter what time of year, but especially during the holiday season.  I would like to share 10 ways that you can lift others burdens – ways that you and your family can part-take in.

  1.  Remember that you never know the struggle a person is dealing with when you come in contact with them.  A kind smile, compliment or generosity are great ways of rising someone’s spirits while making them feel great about them self.
  2. Donate food like canned goods to your local food bank.  My sons and I always take a list of canned goods and suggestions with us while shopping and pick up a few extras to deliver to the food bank.
  3. Adopt a family this holiday season.  Each year my family and I select a name from the “Angel Tree” and purchase gifts on the family’s holiday wishlist.
  4. Donate your gently used items like household goods, clothing, blankets and more to your community homeless shelter.  Winter is the coldest time of year and sometimes a warm blanket, jacket and socks can make a huge difference in someones life.
  5. Make a meal for a family member or friend who may be ill, down on their luck or overworked.  Or – donate the meal to the soup or homeless kitchen for holiday service.
  6. Help a neighbor who is elderly by collecting their recyclables, trash, etc. so that they do not have to get into the cold and take care of it.
  7. Write letters or send holiday cards to service members, sending them holiday cheer as they serve our country and are aware from their families and friends.
  8. Sing and carol around your local neighborhood to bring  holiday cheer.
  9. Help a friend in need.  Assist a friend who may need help, a ride, a meal or anything and make sure you follow through and see it to the end.  Sometimes all your friend may need is kind wishes and a prayer, but knowing that someone is rooting for them means everything.
  10. Head on over to mormon.org for a list of ways that you can make a difference and don’t forget to #LightTheWorld

I can’t stress this enough, no matter what religion we believe in – together, we can all work together and help to light the world with Christ’s love and a commitment to serve.  In 25 days and 25 ways we can offer those around us action and service inspired by Christ and Light The World around us.

Happy Holidays!

About 2 months ago, I introduced you all to Wink by Amalie.  Wink is a Lash & Brow Oil that was formulated to be a natural solution for regrowing lost lashes and brows.  I raved about how the product has worked for me and I’ve been using WINK now for over 3 months and have been loving how my lashes feel, the length I’m able to see and how nourished my lashes are looking.  Since it is October, which happens to be Breast Cancer Awarenss Month, I wanted to reshare some information on Wink and their awesome Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

About the Campaign…

For every bottle of WINK sold during the month of October, Amalie will donate one bottle to a cancer survivor, to help them regrow lashes and brows that are lost through chemotherapy.  Amalie changes EVERYTHING to pink starting October 1st at midnight.

What is the source of inspiration for the campaign?

This campaign was inspired by Amalie’s customers.  Many cancer warriors were purchasing WINK and emailing the brand afterwards to say how awesome WINK was for them (especially for their confidence) during the recovery.

We must work together to make this year’s campaign bigger than ever.  The Campaign originally started in 2014 and the charities Amalie works with are consistently running out before the year is over.  WINK is constantly voted by recipients as one of their favorite products in their post treatment bags.  My goal is to bring awareness to this campaign while sharing with you the details so that we can get at least 2500 unites of WINK to these charities to get through 2017.  Last year Amalie donated just under 1000 bottles of WINK so while the goal is more than double the amount, together – we can rock this  year’s record.

How can you help?

When you purchase Amalie Beauty’s WINK oil – Amalie will donate one bottle to a cancer warrior.  The cause is great and I think it’s a fabulous way to help support cancer survivors.  Buy purchasing your WINK Lash and Brow Oil, you can help someone in need of this lash serum.

Here are all the details:

The campaign duration is from October 1st (Midnight EST) to October 31st.  Be sure to make your purchase at: www.amaliebeauty.com/products/wink.  Spread the word with Hashtags:  #BOGOfortheCure #PinkWINK to bring awareness to this campaign.

Help Amalie Beauty and those that have survived cancer by purchasing your tube today!
