Anthropologie: Winter 2015

111715_V1_HPG_desktop_slice_03Can we talk about Anthropologie right now? I’m obsessed with pretty much their entire Brand, but these Winter 15’/16′ looks are so on point they leave me breathless! I’m all about these earthy tones, oversized coats and capes! Don’t even get me started on the plaid! I’m in Heaven!

Also, check out their super cute holiday decor! Aren’t these little owl ornaments the most  precious things ever?!? Being a total sucker for owls, I’m definitely trying to get my hands on these!

Last, I am in loveeeee with these Jane Austen Classic Novels, designed by Graphic artist Leanne Shaptons. You can find them in the “under $25”  gift list! These would make adorable bed side decor or coffee table accents, while giving you a reason to enjoy the classics all over again!

United We Stand #womensequalityday

 

So, today is Women’s Equality Day. Today, marks the 95th anniversary of women’s right to vote here in the United States! By now you have probably read this about a million times scrolling through your news feeds, well here is a million and one! I wouldn’t particularly label myself as a feminist. I’m not a big fan of labels in general, but I would definitely say I’m a HUGE fan of everything to do with women’s equality, empowerment & just over all support of one another. We have accomplished so much through the years and there’s still so much more to look forward to! Let’s keep the momentum going & stand united, not apart! Let’s make sure we are all here to support & inspire one another. This is the only way DAYS like this are possible!  Also, let’s not make it all about ONE DAY! Let’s make it about a journey, an everyday commitment to be kind to one another, cheer each other on, lend a helping hand & look out for each other. This is the way we will continue growing and breaking through the glass ceiling that society wants us to believe is our limit. We have no limit to what we are capable of accomplishing! So, lets stand united & continue making history! Cheers to Women’s Equality Day! #hardworkpaysoff

Happy In 5!!!

1 – Soak Up Some Rays: Even if it’s 10 minutes, vitamin D is essential to your happy state! Slap on that sunscreen & take in that good feeling!

2 – Let Your Feet Wonder: Studies have shown that at least 30 minutes of walking per day can be a major mood booster. Walking helps with circulation, which in return releases stress hormones from the body.

3 – Intake That H20: Dehydrated people are cranky people! Water helps keep the body going, curbs appetite and gives you much needed energy throughout the day. Drink up!

4 – Tap Into Your Self: Meditate for at least 5 minutes a day. Turn everything off, tune everyone out and clear your mind. Let your worries melt away. You will feel much lighter and be transported into a new form of bliss.

5 – Laugh Till It Hurts: Listen to a joke, hangout with hilarious people, watch a funny movie or clip. There is no better medicine then a good belly-aching giggle! It connects you with your inner child, simpler times where everything was happy and carefree.

Must Have Bags

So this past weekend I decided to start my spring cleaning ritual, with my oh so crazy closet. I know, scary! First on the list, my bags. I’m proud to say I have come a long way in this department. I use to be a major bag hoarder, but now I can confidently say I have down – graded to your average bag collection of about 20. As impressive as that might seem to a major bag collector, I still feel the need to retired some bags that just serve me no purpose anymore. I was online the other day and came across a great article on fabsugar.com, about the 6 major bags a woman really needs. So, I decided to put my own spin on the article and break it down for you ladies who might also be facing this process of elimination. Hopefully, this will help us detach ourselves from some of the oldies but goodies and get back to basics!

The Best Friend – This is your everyday bag. Your go-to, always there for you, dependable and sturdy one. Carries your life in it and pretty much knows all your dirty secrets.

2014-04-08 13.33.09

The Quicky – Your errands, fast – paced, in and out daytime clutch. A personal hand held organizer of all your main womanly needs. It keeps it all together,  but doesn’t call for all the extras.

2014-04-08 13.34.16

The No Fuss – This will be your crossbody bag. Oh, the freedom this one gives you! This should be your go-to bag for any overly active day. It’s hands free and way better than strapping on a fanny-pack! Bonus, probably the most thief – proof of all the purses (but make sure you face it forward).

2014-04-08 13.37.37

The Handy One – This would be your tote. Your towel, magazine, book holding pal. The lug everything you can possibly think of for a day at the beach, park or school bag.

2014-04-08 13.39.16

The Jet – setter – The one and only weekender. Your jump in the car, road trip sidekick. Always ready for the next adventure.  Big enough to fit a couple of outfits, but light enough to make a spontaneous escape.

2014-04-08 13.32.14

The Game Changer – Last but not least, your evening clutch. The sexy and edgy quick to impress piece of hand held art that we love to display. This stunner can spice up some the most boring outfits. It’s a collections must have.

Beyoncé For H&M

I am absolutely obsessed with H&M’s New Summer 2013 Campaign! Not only are the patterns/colors brilliant & deliciously vibrant, but the textures/fabrics are oh so flowy and airy, perfect for those hot summer days! As if the collection itself wasn’t amazing enough, they took it a step up by picking one of our favorite beauty as their muse. The Queen B herself, Beyoncé! Take a peek at some of our top picks from the collection below. Also, be sure to check out the Campaign video on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMok-RBgj1I ) & don’t forget to stop by your local H&M Store or log-on to H&M.Com to view the entire collection for yourself!
