I recently had to put writing on hold to start my own business! People have always told me that I give really thoughtful and cute gifts, goodie bags, etc. so I thought, why not make a cute gift for everyone to enjoy? That is where I came up with Lone Star Boxes. They are seasonal boxes that include essentials from Texas shops/businesses and artisans! I know how important it is to shop local and support your community. For the last couple of years, I have been studying at Southern Methodist University in Dallas & Texas has become my new home. Since I have been here, I really have not volunteered as much as I did while I lived in Miami and I knew a part of me was missing. I decided that with every new seasonal box that I create, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local Texas organization that I truly believe in. I think it is important to support local shops as well as organizations. By creating Lone Star Boxes, my hope & wish is to spread awareness to my Texas family & beyond!
The first-ever Lone Star Box, was the 2017 Holiday Box. This box includes 6 items: a Color Eye Define liner/shadow duo stick from Susan Posnick Cosmetics, a custom ‘Texas 2017’ ornament by Proper Letter, a Cinnamon or Pomegranate Cider candle from Linden Candle Co., a vanilla bean body cream and sugar scrub from Urban Hydration, as well as some other goodies from Bird Bakery & Modern Maids. The Holiday Box is $45.95 and has a value of over $85!!! A portion of the proceeds from the 2017 Holiday Box will be donated to Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support. This organization helps women & children who have been in abusive relationships. Inside each box, you will also fine a brochure with facts, tips, and contact info for Genesis Women’s. But, of course, i’ll link the website, here.
I worked really hard to make the Holiday Box, the perfect gift to give any girl. I am really proud of the way it came out! Every time I hear positive feedback, I get even more excited for the future. Be sure to look out for the Spring/Summer Box coming soon!!
