We couldn't have been more excited when 31 Bits teamed up with us to be our October Guest Editors - and the opportunity to showcase the Founding ladies has been quite the talk in the estCA headquarters. The four fabulous women (Anna, Alli, Jessie and Kallie) continue to inspire us constantly with their "Fashion for Good" handcrafted jewelry company, 31 Bits. Their company provides jobs to women in Uganda to encourage them to "rise above poverty" and at the same time, allows YOU to make a direct impact on the women's lives in Uganda (because they are entirely funded by the product sales!)

We couldn't resist asking Anna a few questions about her life and what keeps her inspired - this is what she had to say :
If I could play with any musician (alive or dead), it would be..
Probably Ryan Adams, he's my absolute FAV. I also think playing with Haim would be amazing and hilarious.
My favorite childhood memory involving music..
I used to put on kareokee concerts for my family and all the neighbors during the summer. I would charge for tickets and everything. haha. I've always loved performing.
I’m inspired by..
life, my friends, my hubby, adventures. Seeing the world around me and how much creativity exists in it probably inspires me the most.
My favorite part of California is…
Fullerton! My husband and I live in downtown Fullerton and we've fallen in love with the community. It's such a unique little pocket of perfection. It feels like a small town, everyone knows each other and there are a lot of cute bars/restaurants that we can walk to!
Favorite part of my day..
Coming home from work and seeing my kitty and my hubby. :)
First thing I do when I get to the office..
I usually spend my mornings catching up on unanswered emails.
Air Guitar playing is…
