Thanksgiveaway with The Catrinka Project

The more I talk about product consumption here on the blog and on my Instagram, the more I think about how we can discuss ways to shop smart and give back. (If you read my post on why defining your style can save the planet, you might have picked up on that sentiment.) The laws of attraction have been working their magic on me these days, including a fortuitous collaboration inquiry from Megan Reilly Cayten of The Catrinka Project, a global accessories brand with an incredible female empowerment twist. All the yass!!

Based in Brooklyn, The Catrinka Project partners with ethical, female-focused production groups in countries like Mexico, Guatemala and India to create the gorgeous textiles and accessories that make up the collection. Their tag line, “Buy a bag, employ a woman, educate a girl,” reflects The Catrinka Project’s mission to provide employment opportunities for women, which subsequently allows them to invest in their children’s education and their communities at large. This cycle ultimately improves future generations’ chances of sustained health and economic success, basic human rights that many of us take for granted. (You can read more about The Catrinka Project here.)

Showcasing native fabrics and techniques, Catrinka’s assortment contains that playful, global aesthetic we love so much here on the neon tea party. To get you in on the action, we’re giving away two of my favorite pieces from the collection: the Lalita Tote and Neon Keychain in pink/yellow, which are pictured throughout this post.

>>GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED<<

I also want to give an extra special shoutout to my dear friend and photographer Becca Siegel who took these stunning pictures. We had the. best. time. shooting in NYC’s flower district last weekend where we played with cacti, posed with trees, and awkwardly dodged passersby. Scroll through to the bottom to catch all the fun!

  • Thankful for this crazy bunch 🌸
.
Each summer, when our California cousins are living on the east coast, our family gets together for Thanksgiving in July for a much larger gathering than our November iteration. In addition to the obvious treat of enjoying a turkey and mashed potato dinner, it’s the memories we make each year that makes this tradition so special.
.
Tonight’s decor was particularly memorable: we moved dinner outside to the deck, decorated the table with the most beautiful homemade hydrangea arrangement EVER, and I whipped up these name shells we can keep using for years to come. 💕
.
Does your family have any cherished summer traditions?
