The Teal Tulip is an adorable online boutique based in Rockwall, Texas that is constantly adding precious new arrivals. They’re affordable and offer free shipping on every single order. Does it get any better than that? I think not. If you are anything like me, paying for shipping can be a deal breaker.
So why is being local such a big deal to me? Well, I have reached a place of awareness in my financial life, where I begin to think about where my money is going and who or what it is supporting. (Is that called responsibility?) I am not sure but I work hard for my money honey and I want it to mean something more than just spending it all at big corporations like Walmart. (lol, I lived in Arkansas too long).
Naturally we want to support one another and especially those in our community. One of the easiest ways to do this is to buy locally or from someone in your community… and this doesn’t mean they have to be down the street or even in the same state. The Teal Tulip however happens to be based out of Rockwall, Texas which makes it even closer to home for me. The owner is a hard working mother who wants to provide fashionable clothing to women at an affordable price.
When we choose to support amazing people like this, it all comes full circle.
Local Gems is a new thing I want to add to Milan Darling because I find importance in supporting my community. I think things began to click when I started working at Kendra Scott and learning how much she does to give back to the community and help others through her success. I believe people want to help, they just don’t realize how easy it is. Small actions can sometimes mean the most.
See ya next time darlings.
