I just read your comment and was saddened to hear you weren’t happy with the scarf you received from Fashionable.

Have you had a chance to contact them and let them know you’d like a replacement or a refund? I have no doubt they want to make sure you’re happy with your purchase.

Though no company is perfect, and I believe you when you say the scarf arrived with multiple snags, I think your experience is an exception.

I’ve personally purchased at least a dozen Fashionable scarves, and I’ve seen at least a hundred of these scarves in person, and I found the quality to be excellent. I feel the scarves are far more beautiful in person than they are online, and I recommend the company with confidence.

As much as I love the message and the fact that making these scarves provides women in Africa with employment… sending a scarf full of multiple snags is not okay. They scarves look amazing online and in person are a huge disappointment.

I was there in 2009, and was amazed at how happy everyone was, despite the poverty. I hope you enjoy the wonderful food, but just know that Kitfo is raw beef . . :)

In August, I visited Kenya and Tanzania for the first time and was overwhelmed with the beauty!

I had my fair share of stomach aches on the trip. For my next trip, I’m going to bring a travel mug, mint tea, ginger chews, and anything else that makes a stomach happier.

I love it! I’m going to gather my thoughts and see if I can make something like this for my mother and grandmother for Mother’s Day.

Best wishes for a safe and happy trip!

There was no way I wanted to put my feet down on the floor without knowing what the bug situation was like without being able to look at it first – and I wanted my flashlight to be right at hand. Mine was also a shake one so I didn’t have to worry about the batteries wearing out.

Have a wonderful trip – can’t wait to hear all about it. We are off to the cottage by a lake in the Ontario woods for our Thanksgiving weekend.

Meanwhile, the team spirit video made me smile! WONDERFUL!!
