Happy Holidays!

We wish you and yours a healthy and festive season, from all of us here at kikaPaprika!

kikaCares about Hope Gardens

kikaCares joined together to make 31 customized gift packages for the mothers at Hope Gardens this month. We sent out a questionnaire to the women on their specific sizes and color preferences, then gave them a new kikaPaprika jacket, pant, and top! The women will open the gifts on Christmas Day.

Currently, 31 mothers and 59 children, as well as 22 senior adults reside at Hope Gardens Family Center. In just under a year, 16 families have successfully transitioned from Hope Gardens into permanent housing, a 55% success rate.
On July 21, 2008, Union Rescue Mission celebrated the first year anniversary of its Hope Gardens Family Center. Union Rescue Mission (URM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor and the homeless. Established in 1891, URM is one of the largest rescue missions of its kind in the United States and is the oldest in Los Angeles. It provides a comprehensive array of emergency and long-term services, including food, shelter, clothing; medical and dental care; Christian recovery programs, transitional housing, legal assistance, education, counseling, and job training to needy men, women, children, and families.

Layering clothes can be quite a science. The key is to create balance within the layers to ensure you look fashionable and not frumpy. Above we started with an 805B Yoga skirt in Mocha and a Hacienda Tank. Layered on top is a 145 C Lucy in white (tied in the back) and a kikaCares scarf in Mocha! You can try this at home too! Start with a good solid base like our Relaxed Fit Pant in Black, and a 701B Black tank. Next put on a colored Taylor like Cherry, then a matching Cherry Jessie. Top it off with a floppy knitted winter hat and/or kikaScarf! Layering is fun!

Simple Holiday Solution

By Heath Andrews

It’s the Holiday season and everyone is busy, busy, busy! With the rush of things to get done it’s easy to neglect your own needs. You’d be amazed at how many women forget all about the outfits they’ll need for upcoming family get-togethers, dinners, or work functions until, last minute, they find themselves scurrying around the mall in a panic. What a recipe for disaster! I’ve got a better idea. KikaPaprika! It’s your simple Holiday solution—no lengthy trips to the mall, no fighting crowds, and no hassles. All you need is 60-90 minutes for a personal or small group consultation. Instead of getting suckered into buying something you’ll never wear again, with Kika you’ll always get clothing that’s versatile and fun that you’ll love wearing (and still fit in) long after the festivities have ended.

Still need more incentive? Ok. Let’s throw in customer and hostess specials! For a limited time you can get our Reese print dress for only $65 (regularly $92)

and our limited edition Bree Wrap jacket for $55 (regularly $88). As a Hostess you will be the envy of all your friends in our stunning Hostess Only 3-piece ensemble for as little as $55—that’s a savings of $107! With budget friendly options like these, how can you or your friends say ‘No’?

How about presents and stockings full of Kika this Christmas? Write up your Wish List, along with names and phone numbers of friends and family to contact, and let your Fashion Consultant do the rest—she’ll even gift wrap everything! But, why stop there? What woman in your life wouldn’t want Kika for Christmas? We have everything you need—from clothing, jewelry, and scarves to gift certificates. Sometimes it truly is better to give than to receive…but who said you couldn’t have both?

kikaPaprika truly is your simple Holiday solution.
