Heart to Heart

As some of you may know, I am a charter member for the Gamma Phi chapter of Alpha Phi at Florida State. I was the Vice President of Marketing last year for our chapter, and one of my biggest accomplishments was creating a relationship with our local hospital, Tallahassee Memorial, and more specifically with their Heart & Vascular Center.

Alpha Phi's international philanthropy supports Women's Heart Health. With that being said, Alpha Phi foundation selects a Hospital each year to receive a $50,000 Heart to Heart Grant, based upon all of the grant applicants.

This year, Tallahassee Memorial Health Foundation is one of TWO recipients of the Heart to Heart Grant. TMH plans on providing our chapter, along with the other 15 Panhellenic chapters on our campus, with CPR certification. That is nearly 600 women who will benefit from this grant. We will also be able to take a tour inside a giant replica of a human heart! 

There are no words to explain my excitement. Not only did our chapter raise nearly $28,000 at our annual Red Dress Gala last fall, with half of the proceeds benefitting the Heart & Vascular Center at TMH, but TMH has just received a $50,000 grant to aid and instruct those on how to help those experiencing some sort of medical emergency relating to the heart. 

Congratulations Alpha Phi and the TMH Foundation. Here is to many more years to come!

I have been contemplating for a while to change my blog name from Smile It's Sunday. SIS was originally suppose to relate to the fact that I would take blog pictures every Sunday, and post them throughout the week accordingly. I'm sure my loyal followers have noticed/observed that has not happened. Between going out of town, work, and school, the plan just went awry. I did think the name Smile It's Sunday was cute and catchy, but it really did not correlate to myself whatsoever. 

I wanted a blog name that related to more of who I am, which I believe is a bold, blonde young woman!

I will still be posting outfits and Wednesday Wants, and hopefully more frequently like this past week!

Hawaiian Hippie

Dress: Urban Outfitters (OLD); Bag: Kate Spade; Shoes: Steve Madden (OLD); Earrings: Aldo (OLD); Watch: Michael Kors; Rings: Vintage, Tiffany & Co. 

One evening on the cruise the attire for dinner was Hawaiian/Floral themed. Most young women would not be into the tourist-y look, and I decided it was best to stick to a more hippie/girly vibe. I absolutely love this dress; the way it flows, and how absolutely comfortable it is, is an amazing bonus.
