A week in photos

As many of you have heard our small community suffered a major mudslide last week. This comes right on the tail of the Thomas Fire. It has been unreal to watch family and friends lose loved ones. We are of course doing as much as we can to help.

We tried to explain it all to Eleanor. She goes to school in Montecito, and obviously hasn’t been able to attend, and has wondered why?. It’s hard to explain to a three year old what a tragic event it is.

Our hearts are broken, but we are a strong community that will rebuild.

We tried to bring happiness in this week, with it being such a hard and sad time.  Here are some pictures of the week, and I included a few photos from firefighter, Mike Eliason, of the mudslide.

Hold your loved ones close and be kind to one another. Life can turn in an instant.

much love~

A new YOU!

I wanted to take a moment to pop over here and tell you about a new venture I’ve added to the shop.  Closet Editor, someone who comes and organizes your closet to make you feel good, free of chaos, and have an order to your clothing, accessories and shoes.

Standing in front of your closet, staring at what to wear in the morning, is something we all have done once or twice. (eye roll) I will come organize you to exactly what fits your personality. This is something that tends to go deeper than the surface.

Fashion is something that should make you feel good, support who you are. Your wardrobe should speak to you, every single piece. Sometimes we have a hard time getting rid of “stuff”, I’m here to help you organize the chaos. I want you to feel good when you get up and get in that closet of yours every day.

Sometimes you just need a little guidance, and that’s where I come in.

Looking forward to turning your life back to where it needs to be. Happy, simple and fun!

Please feel free to email me at shoplovethreads@gmail.com for any questions and a quote.

Currently serving Los Angeles, Montecito, Summerland, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria.

Be Present. Be CALM


Something we feel strongly about, is supporting different organizations around the country. One of them that we have recently learned more about is CALM. CALM’s prevention programs across Santa Barbara county help parents and children heal from their traumatic pasts. Raising our voices for the safety and well-being of our children will always be top priority for us.

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, from 11:30-1:00, CALM will hold their annual luncheon, CALM at heart.  The event will take place at the Coral Casino, Four Seasons Biltmore, in Montecito, California.

The event is to raise funds to support CALM’s vital child abuse prevention and treatment programs at CALM.  This years theme, Awakening, honors the mindful work CALM therapists do with children and families.  Guests will enjoy an afternoon of music and keynote speaker, Dr. Jennifer Freed, all while enjoying a two-course lunch and panoramic ocean views.

Tickets for the event can be purchased here,  and any further questions can be answered at 805-965-2376.
