H&M Conscious



As IF we all even needed a reason to shop at H&M, our beloved Swedish fashion retail chain has recently partnered up with three major global non-profit organizations with donations of $27 million to support global development issues in the areas of clean water, education and strengthening women. Per their website:

"The H&M Conscious Foundation is an independent non-profit global foundation initiated by H&M. The mission of the Foundation is to reach beyond H&M´s value chain and contribute to positive long-term change for people and communities."

Now we can shop for a cause, guilt free! I feel a lot better about my impulse buying habits now. 

What I have my eyes on: this parka jacket will be perfect for spring, and these heels are the perfect height for walking around on a night out, or even these leopard ones, my goodness! Also this cardigan for $12.50- a no brainer.

Last Weekend



Brunch at Grand Luxe Cafe for my niece's birthday. She's growing up so fast, I can't believe she's six already. Her and my little nephew bring so much joy to my life.

{Shopping} ASOS Haul-Mixed Prints


I want to start sharing some of my shopping hauls with you guys! I need to justify these frivolous expenses somehow, and sharing is caring right? I'm a serious impulse buyer, but what can I say? I love beautiful things and if its practical, the idea of going another day without the object of my desire nags at my sartorial conscious to the point that I actually breathe a sign of relief after going through the transactions resulting in that comforting confirmation email letting me know my new loves are on their way home. 

Exhibit A:  I totally fell in love with the design on this embroidered clutch bag by ASOS.  I got some really good use out of it when I went to Cali, I swear it complimented every.single. outfit! Thank the Lawd I copped it before it sold out. For similar Antrhopologie has some great options like {this} one which is a steal for only $24 or {this} one on sale for $39!!!

Exhibit B: How cute is my new leopard print passport holder? Nothing like travelling in style! I hope I can get some good mileage out of it this year.

xoxo, 
Vanessa
