Happy Friday everyone- Kendra here! In the spirit of the season, we had some fun at our corporate office this week, breaking out the tackiest holiday attire we could find and partaking in some yuletide festivities. My sales team decorated their office with ornaments and lights, while my merchandising team had fun creating gingerbread houses. Taking some time away at the office to enjoy some of the traditions of the holidays is a great way to relax during this merry, but sometimes hectic, time of year. Another way my team celebrated the holidays was through making hilarious videos using JibJab. The videos were so hysterical I was crying with laughter. Read on to see the videos that each of my teams came up with…

Happy Friday everyone – Kendra here! Today I want to discuss something that touches me and so many other women across the globe…breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed at some point in their lives, and with an alarming statistic like that, it is so important to spread awareness about this devastating disease. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, 20% of the proceeds from our online SHOP Pink Collection this month will benefit Susan G. Komen Affiliate of Austin.

Happy Friday everyone – Kendra here! With two fabulous new stores opening in Houston’s Rice Village and CityCentre this fall, I thought now would be the perfect time for a Kendra and the City – Houston edition. I’ve shared with you all my favorite spots and things to do inDallas and New York City and other amazing cities, but since I’m not yet familiar with Houston, I reached out to some of my Houston insiders at KS – Starla Terry, Danay Leffel and Sophee Houseman, and one of our biggest Houston fans - Ailee Semple to find out the coolest places to go and things to see when visiting the largest city in the state of Texas – Houston.

Happy Friday everyone – Kendra here! Each year, Austin Fashion Week concludes with the Austin Fashion Awards – a fabulous evening complete with the Golden Boot Awards ceremony and an incredible fashion show. Last year, I was so honored to take home the Golden Boot for People’s Choice “Best Jewelry Designer” and Industry’s Choice “Best Overall Designer.” This year, as a board member, it was such a privilege to watch one of my favorite fellow Austin designers, Ross Bennett, take home a Golden Boot for the “Rising Star” award. The most exciting part of the Austin Fashion Awards is the fashion show, and I had an absolute blast creating amazing, out-of-this-world pieces for the 2012 Austin Fashion Awards show. In case you weren’t there for the show, read on to see each of the fantastic looks featured on the KS catwalk, photographed by Peter Tung…

Happy Friday everyone – Kendra here! The growing popularity of braids has given women an array of chic and easy options for days when their hair just won’t cooperate. Needless to say, braids have become a hot commodity here at the Kendra Scott office. A few weeks ago, I was having a rushed morning and decided to throw my hair up in a braided bun. It was quick, easy, and I loved the results! My quick up-do was also a hit at the office, so I decided to try it out on one of our fabulous sales gals, Natalie, and share a little DIY with you all…

Happy Friday everyone – Kendra here! This week was so exciting for all of us because our first-ever billboard was unveiled in Dallas, Texas. When the opportunity to have a Kendra Scott company billboard arose, I was absolutely thrilled and couldn’t wait to get started on the design. Having my own photo as the featured image on the billboard, however, took some serious convincing…
