i had such a great time last weekend out in california meeting some of you during the event for AT&T and TOMS as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary of working together! for the #CelebrateGood event, they constructed a huge life-sized shoebox, where they had a bunch of fun activities going on inside including a virtual reality experience (which i had never done before) that made you feel like you were standing right there, witnessing the incredible things that take place around the world through TOMS shoe gives, which are powered by AT&T’s network. (you can catch it on youtube here if you’d like.)

a few photos from the event below!

something fun that AT&T and TOMS had going on during the event, was a photo frame that triggered a shoe donation for each photo shared on social media during the event with the hashtags #CelebrateGood and #ShoeGive! loved that.

    Hi Taza! What a great initiative from Tom’s, that’s fantastic that social media can be useful to raise awareness on certain subjects or help poorer’s people lives around the globe. I am a strong believer that ‘every little helps’ and if people like you can use their ‘online presence and fellowship’ to help then I am all for it – what a terrific poster of you – it must have been so funny for you to stand next to it;) I own a pair of Tom’s shoes and apart from the great cause they support I have to say they are real comfy shoes and very flattering on the legs even when wearing a skirt or shorts. I asked hubby to bring them back to me last year from a business trip he made to California (although the shoes can be found in the UK) and I am glad the nice days are back so I am getting a chance to wear them again. The photos on your post are lovely and what a cute top you are wearing! Big hugs from London, Julie xx

    Would have loved to join the festivities!

  13. Heidi

    I had no idea how many different styles of shoes Toms made!! Soo cute! Sometimes I have a hard time justifying buying shoes, but when I know that my purchases are going to help out for a good cause, I’m all on board! So amazing! I love Tom’s! Thank you for sharing this post! I’m definitely jumping on board buying myself some shoes, so I can help support those in need! Good work lady! I love any cause that takes part in helping those around me! :)

  14. Elaine

    What a great event. We wondered what you were up to in LA. So proud of all you do. Keep up the good work. xoxo

    Always wanted to ask yo: how do you handle the blogger “fame”? Do you get recognized on the streets, do you feel confortable with all of it? what about your family (kids, husband, parents, sisters or brother)

  16. Kate

    I’m sure you’ve heard about Rodan & Fields but this Redefine regimen has been UH-MAZ-ING for minimizing my pores. I can’t say enough good things about it!
