Inspired by Africa

Hi lovelies!!! Today I am over at The Aestate, posting about African-inspired accessories and clothes from 2012 runways.  Tribal trends were popular in the fall of 2011, and the influence has transitioned quite nicely in to spring 2012.  

I was fortunate enough to get to travel to Africa this past summer to visit a little boy I sponsor through Compassion International.  He is so near and dear to my heart!  We also traveled to a few villages and built clean water wells.   It was an unforgettable experience.

I was so inspired by how happy all the people we met were, despite their dire conditions.

Here I am with one of the sweetest little girls I met, near her home in the slums of Kenya.

The kids even made their own drum set.  They were so resourceful!

Some of the children from the village.  They loved my blonde hair! :)  It was a wonderful experience and reminded me how much I have to be thankful for.  To learn more about sponsoring a child, go visit Compassion International.  There are so many children in need, and it only costs $35 per month!

To see my post about tribal-influenced accessories and clothes, go visit The Aestate!
