I am so excited to introduce you to another one of my wonderful Noonday Collection hostesses, Lindsay! Lindsay and I met when she filled out a form online to host a Noonday trunk show. Yes, you read that right. We didn't even know each other before Noonday! That is seriously one of my favorite things about being a part of this world changing company. It allows me to meet so many great people I wouldn't meet otherwise. Lindsay is such a great hostess and everyone at her trunk show felt comfortable and friendships were formed. It's such a great feeling walking into a room where others are excited to see you and that's exactly the kind of hostess Lindsay was! Smiling and welcoming her friends and family in for a world changing evening!
It was great to hear about her "why" of being a Noonday hostess and why she believes her purchase makes a difference. Lindsay shared that we vote with our dollar every time we spend it and I thought that was such a great and tangible way to see the phrase "purchase with purpose." Lindsay's passion is also being passed down to her daughter, Delaney. She gets SO excited about how her purchases are helping men and women in other countries and loves learning about where each piece was made.
Now...here's a little about Lindsay. :)
What made you go from a Noonday customer to a Noonday hostess?
As soon as I heard what Noonday was all about, I immediately knew I couldn't keep these wonderful products all to myself! A quick tour of the Noonday website led me to know I HAD to host a Trunk Show. I am usually VERY reticent to host parties...I don't like my friends to feel guilted into purchasing, but every Noonday purchase has purpose. Beautiful products made by beautiful people. It's a Win-Win.
What was your favorite part of hosting a trunk show?
The best part was beginning a new friendship with you, Brooke! Seeing your heart and knowing how like-minded we are was even better than trying on all the pretty things.
(I couldn't agree more, Lindsay! :) Loved getting to know you!)
What is one piece of Noonday you think every women should own? And, your favorite piece you own and why?
Every woman should own a big bold piece like the Luxe Horn Necklace made in Vietnam (limited quantity), because it is eye catching and people will notice it and comment about it. This is the perfect way to share the mission of Noonday with others! My favorite piece is the Water Drop Prism Earrings made in India. They are big and bold - not a style I would normally wear - but they make me feel confident. They are lightweight and are the perfect touch to dress up my favorite outfits.
Is there a Noonday country or artisan story that sticks out to you?
In my opinion, the artisans of Ethiopia who take the ugliness of war (spent artillery shells, etc) and turn it into something with beauty and purpose is one of my favorite stories; it really embodies Noonday's purpose.
(Some of my great world changing St. Louis hostesses!)
If you would like to host a Noonday trunk show to share these stories like Lindsay did, all you have to say is "yes." You have the opportunity to change lives through fashion. Let's have a fun girls night! And, from now until July 31st - the hostess rewards are INCREASED! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your date reserved! xoxo
