Can I tell you how much I love living in California? I know many people complain about the living expenses and high taxes. But, I think of it as living in a vacation destination! There is so many places to visit and explore. Plus, this state has the best weather for outdoor play — ALL day! Our family loves spending time at the beach and PanMilli summer beach hats are the perfect accessory for fun in the sun!
I had the awesome opportunity to work with PanMilli last summer where she created my first summer floppy hat with the custom saying of ‘Off Duty.’ It is a cherished possession and I receive so many compliments when I wear it. Her woven hats are made to order with any custom text of your choice! Hand made with sequins, glue, ribbon, wire, and pom poms.
When PanMilli told me she was launching a new hat color in her collection and wanted me to review it I was so excited! I am a total fan of the color black! It is chic, sophisticated, and elegant. Black looks incredible with about anything and couple that with beachwear it creates a perfect luxe resort style.
Now, the fun part was choosing my saying and it became very clear to me what I wanted it to read. I chose the words ‘Be You(tiful).’ Don’t you love it? Through this blogging journey I have really come to terms with embracing me — the good and bad and my weaknesses and strengths. I am specifically changing my mindset to focus on the positive characteristics of being me (rather than listening to my inner critic).
It is important that I don’t compare myself to others and honor the body and spirit my Heavenly Father blessed me with. May I impart this message to you to be your own kind of ‘Be You(tiful).’
Another thing about PanMilli that I love is that she supports women entrepreneurs. PanMilli was one of the very first companies I contacted that said yes to a collaboration! This means so much to me because even though I was passionate about my purpose others weren’t! LOL! But, PanMilli was and I am so grateful for her support.
Guys, I received so many rejections for collaborations early on. I still get a lot more no’s then yeses. But, when you meet a company similar to PanMilli and your visions and missions align, there is no greater satisfaction! When PanMilli took a chance on me and said yes when To Thine Own Style Be True was in its infancy stages — it forged a friendship to last a lifetime!
This is why I am a proud supporter of PanMilli and invite you to visit her Etsy store right now. Order a custom made summer floppy hat for Mother’s Day, birthdays, beach parties, bachelorette parties, cruise parties and family reunions. Get summer ready for a custom-made beach hat with PanMilli!
