Angela & Roi: Fashion for a Cause

Angela & Roi is a handbag company created by a couple, Angela and Roi Lee, which is dedicated not only to making fashionable bags, but donating to charity. Their handbags are grouped by color, and each color stands for a cause. When you buy a handbag 5 dollars is donated to the charity corresponding to the color! All of their partners are non-profit organizations, so you know that all the money is really being used for good.

Kidecals: The Fashionable Label

Thanks to Kidecals, I was given the opportunity to try out beautiful fashionable labels! Kidecals has all things ranging from school labels, to canning labels, to wall decals, and even to keycals, which are stylish stickers for your laptop keyboard.
 
Searching their website I was amazed at how many label designs they had, and I immediately thought to get stickers for my blog! I searched through their round name labels and found the exact design I had envisioned. When you pick a label you like, you just type in what you want it to say and it shows up on the sticker on the website so you know exactly what you will get. You can change the size of the text as well as the position.
What I designed on their website!

Check out the stickers I received in the mail Saturday:

Aren't they so cute!!
I immediately put the sticker on my computer! (:

One of the coolest things on Kidecals was the keycals for sure! If you have a mac keyboard I would definitely recommend these. I'm getting a mac soon hopefully and I know the first thing I'll do is go to Kidecals and get my keycals!

This one is my favorite, like all Kidecals its waterproof! (Its also only 16 dollars, and they have tons of styles! Click here to check it out!)

For all my fellow bloggers I definitely recommend stickers with your URL, its a super cute addition to your computer! Also, check out everything else they have, labels for literally anything. Check out their website now! http://kidecals.com

Have a wonderful day!
