This is the time of year a lot of people get hit by the “winter blues”. This year, instead of letting the weather and the grey days get you down, why not do something to help light up your life?  Volunteer for a worthwhile cause! This time of year, it's hard to find people to walk all those adorable dogs at the local shelter- and you might just meet the new furry love of your life! Try something new with friends, or plan a “Go Away Winter” party, decorate with a tropical theme and sip margaritas and drinks with cute little umbrellas while blasting summer-themed music. You could even take a class or workshop on joy & happiness, or just go see an amazing comic with friends and laugh the night away.

While chasing away the winter blues, why not do it all in some amazing shades of blue that will leave you feeling anything but? Blues in bright, fun hues are headlining a lot of looks this season-- from rich, deep navy to brilliant turquoise.

Something Blue

Should you walk down the aisle without something blue? The tradition dates back to the Victorian England, but blue has been a symbol of faithfulness, purity, and loyalty since the days of ancient Rome. Sapphire earrings or a baby blue garter are a sweet and simple way to honor tradition, but bright cobalt nail polish isn’t as rebellious as your Great Aunt Muriel thinks! Before the nineteenth century, blue wedding dresses were far more common than white  gowns. Today, a soft blue dress makes a great "cut the cake" dress option!

Some brides choose to add a blue ribbon to their bouquets or add a blue monogram to their gowns. Unlike some bridal traditions, this is one custom that encourages creativity. Do you prefer teal to indigo? Adore azure, but can’t abide royal blue? Choose navy blue peep-toes or cobalt pumps to complement a more traditional gown.

Check out some of our blue bridal picks below from the Zappos Wedding Shop!

Going Bald (& Blue) for the American Cancer Society

Bald & Blue/Yell for YellowSpirit Week has been a highly anticipated, widely celebrated, and often promulgated tradition at Zappos.  This year, the Zappos Fulfillment Centers, Inc. not only showed its love for both the Zappos and Amazon families during the ever-popular Bald & Blue/Yell for Yellow day, it participated in the face-painting, head-shaving, temporary-tattooing, and hoop-hollering good time for a great cause!

In a show of community involvement and support, Zappos donated on behalf of each participant (up to $5,000) who took to the spray-can, the razor, nail polish bottles, and more.  In addition, the three warehouses in Shepherdsville, KY pursued a side bet: collect the highest total of personal donations in a single warehouse, and see a “celebrity volunteer” get buzz cut.  Raise $1,500 of personal donations from members of the Fulfillment Center as a whole, and see the new General Manager Al O. get his inaugural head shaving. 

Ladies_BeforeLadies_After

The team members banded together and accomplished both feats. More than 1,000 team members participated in the various displays of Zappos spirit and went home covered in yellow and blue. With the maximum Zappos donation; in addition, team members contributed their own funds in droves, raising well over the $1,500 minimum and cheering as both Hector E., Process Manager in W2.5, and Al O., GM, went under the razor.

The 2012 Spirit Week was a great success, and the Zappos Kentucky Family enjoyed fun, friends, and family festivities.  Over $6,500 was donated to The American Cancer Society.

 

So, how did KY Team Members earn these Zappos donations?

  • Spray Your Hair Blue and Yellow: $1
  • Get Tattooed: $1
  • Polish Your Nails Blue and/or Yellow: $1
  • Wear a Blue and/or Yellow Hair Ribbon: $1
  • Wear a Blue and/or Yellow Shirt: $1
  • Shave Your Head
    • over 12 inches: $100 (Males)/$150 (Females)
    • 6 inches - 12 inches: $50 (Males)/$100 (Females)
