The Light That Shines {Guest Post}

Sharing a guest post today from Justiss Boyer-Cowland of Modern Glamour Photography, a triFABB member.


Excerpt from Jill Brzezinski-Conely’s Breast Friends FB Page

Jill Brzezinski-Conley was diagnosed with Stage IIIC invasive breast cancer one day before her 32nd birthday on July 15th 2009 – just 6 months after she married the man of her dreams. Her journey began with the most progressive form of treatment available. Contrary to what most people think, the younger you are, the more aggressive breast cancer can be. Jill’s treatment included 16 rounds of grueling chemotherapy, 31 rounds of radiation and 4 surgeries including a double mastectomy with additional surgery ahead. During her treatment she suffered a broken rib and endured serious complications after her reconstructive surgery. However her strength and determination proved pivotal, and after 2 years Jill was in remission and now considers herself a survivor.

Unfortunately 12 months later Jill found out she had developed bone cancer and at 35 years old, the prognosis is terminal. Through all of this, Jill has kept her wit, determination, and never ending smile, with no room for self pity, while frequently making jokes about her baldness, lack of eyebrows and eyelashes. Her sense of humor, courage, positive attitude and inner beauty is truly remarkable. Anyone who has ever met Jill will tell you that she leaves you with a lasting impression. The room lights up upon her arrival.

A documentary has been filmed and a project is being created so others can photograph women going through this battle and bring beauty and joy into their lives.

Jill’s story has spread fast across the globe and she is overwhelmed by the support she’s received from so many. This page has been created so others can share Jill’s journey, and for Jill to share with you, her story. It’s a place for Jill to help others. This remarkable young woman will change the way you live.

[GUEST POST] Amanda from Eloquent English featuring Apricot Lane

Today’s triFABB Guest Post is from Amanda at Eloquent English. Amanda is an awesome triFABB member who is excited to share her experience with Apricot Lane, a new boutique in the Triangle!

Apricot Lane has finally arrived to the Raleigh area!  The North Hills location opened in early November and I was ecstatic to hear that a few additional locations (Cary, Durham, etc) were opening up in the Triangle!  Apricot Lane has everything from clothes, accessories, purses, jewelry and shoes.  If your looking for a unique and affordable look Apricot Lane is definitely your place to go!
This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Cary Town Center grand opening.  I completely fell in love!
Apricot Lane graciously let me pick out two accessories of my choice (the second item will be shown in a later post).  It took me awhile to pick only two items as I had so many amazing options!  So after forty minutes or so of wandering the store, I picked out a pair of small geometric triangle earrings (shown above) as my first choice.  I loved the tarnished silver look and the earrings are very light weight (which I love as I don’t want to have droopy ears when I get old)!  If you can believe it they were only $8!  I know that I will be frequenting these from my jewelry box!
You will also notice that my cape is from Apricot Lane!  I couldn’t go in and not purchase anything, I just couldn’t help myself!
If you haven’t been to Apricot Lane I would suggest going very soon.  You’re going to love it!
