Join The Movement

We have teamed up with 4Love Clothing & Madi Apparel to provide underwear for women around the globe. 4Love & Madi are making their way to Ecuador at the end of June with hopes to deliver 300 pairs of underwear.

I am asking all of my RTW followers to come together, join the movement and donate $10 to this cause. Each $10 donation will provide a woman in need with a pair of undies + donation drop off.

You can donate by going to https://app.mobilecause.com/form/WWSngA or text MADI to 71777 and enter the amount.

I’m Nominated!

3and3quarters.net_

Super excited that @fashionofpure nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thank you!! Everyone should go check out her fashion blog for outfit and style inspiration.

Below are my answers to @fashionofpure‘s questions:

How did you come up with the idea of starting your blog? 

I had a ton of photos in my phone from recent travels, new outfits, and things that inspire me daily, so I decided it was time to share with everyone!

Why is blogging important to you?

It’s my creative outlet. Most importantly, i genuinely enjoy doing it.

The one moment that motivated you to start your blog?

I was flying home from Atlanta (on a business trip) and I was scrolling through my photos from the trip (amazing restaurants, fashion, drinks, scenery, etc.) and I said to myself If I shared this information for others I’m sure they would find it helpful if they are traveling to Atlanta. Who doesn’t want some great restaurant tips or fun attractions to visit? And then my mind just filled with all of the other possibilities.

How is your blog different from the other blogs?

I read very few other blogs. I try to keep RTW unique to me and my inspirations. I think keeping your blog organic and true to yourself is so important. I hope that when others read RTW they are connecting directly with me, my visions and my life.

What is the one post made by you that you like the most, and why?

This is a tough one, but I’d have to say ‘Boyfriend Jeans’ because it was the most fun shooting the looks. My sister shoots all of my content and we laughed the entire day.

The one novel/song/movie that you relate to the most, and why?

Sunday Morning by Maroon 5. It’s my all time favorite. It reminds me of weekends spent laying with the one you love. What’s better than that?

If you could have one magical power, what would you want it to be?

To see the future. I am a planner. I like to know what’s happening, when it’s happening and how it’s happening. I guess I will just have to continue to wait and see what’s in store for me!

Which is your favorite clothing brand/designer and why?

Hmm.. There’s a lot!  But i’d have to say Free People.

The best piece of advice you’ve ever recieved?

To be happy – in all aspects of your life. Do what you have to do to make sure you are happy with your job, relationships, friendships, and most importantly yourself. There is no greater feeling than the balance of feeling content with all parts of your life.

A blogging trend you like the most and why?

Product reviews because they are so informative!

Your mantra success?

Find your happiness.

Put A Spring In Your Step

With Spring just around the corner it felt necessary to treat myself to some affordable, fun shoes. Black is just my thing. No matter what season – black is my go-to color, so don’t be surprised that my spring shoe picks are mostly black. Some things never change! Shop the links below.

Maid of Honor

New Years Eve was such a special night for me. Surrounded by family, friends and glasses of champagne – I was completely surprised when my sister put her computer in front of me and played the video below.

A walk down memory lane. Gosh, it feels like yesterday we were playing dolls in the play room and now i will stand next to her when she gets married. This video made me laugh and cry, but most of all it made me realize how lucky i am to have my sister.

I, of course, said yes. After we hugged and cried, she gave me this beautiful box of MOH goodies! It was the best surprise on NYE!

KYLIE LIP KIT

The day has finally arrived.

DSC_0260-001.JPG

First, I went onto snap chat and Kylie posted that 46K active users were on her Kylie Cosmetics site, so i went into a panic. The first two times her lip kits were available I completely missed it and I was not going to let that happen again! Koko K was my first choice and that was sold out (I plan on ordering it whenever it becomes available again) and 22 was my second choice. I added 22 to my cart and typed in my credit card number as quickly as possible!!! Order confirmed. Order shipped. Happy human.

Positive Note: The kit comes with a matching lip pencil and matte lip gloss. I applied the lip pencil, then the lip gloss and let it set for a few minutes. The matte finish is amazing. For $29 I was SO impressed.

Side Note: I applied it at 7pm on friday night. I told myself I would get out of bed before i fell asleep to wipe it off and of course, I never did. I woke up in the morning and it was still  on perfectly. (And it wasn’t on my pillows!!) Long lasting is an understatement.

Negative Note: It smells like vanilla. It looks so good that I can overlook the sweet smell.

Another Side Note: It comes off easily with a make up wipe or remover.

If you are contemplating ordering one, I totally recommend it! I will post about Koko K when I get my hands on it! Xx

GLOSSIER.

A friend recommended Glossier because she loved a few of their products, so i decided to see for myself. I ordered their generation g matte lipstick (color: jam), boy brow (color: blonde) and milky jelly cleanser. All of them exceeded my expectations! Yes, i am in love.

The generation g matte lipstick has the finish like a stain, but can be applied like a balm. I ordered the color Jam and it’s definitely something I can throw in my bag and apply at anytime. I’m so glad that I ordered it – i will definitely be purchasing the other shades. Below are a few pictures of the jam shade on me.

The boy brow gives me life. I’ve been looking for a good brow filler because my eye brows are blonde and barely exist. The boy brow is basically like mascara for your eyebrows. It works as a filler & shaper at the same time. I absolutely love it. Below is a photo with boy brow applied to my right eye brow and nothing on my left. Holy difference.

The milky jelly cleanser is amazing. It’s both gentle and strong. Leaving your face feeling soft and clean with the ability to dissolve your make up off of your face too. I used it after I showered and it made my face feel like new. I am super excited to use it again tomorrow!

I am looking forward to trying more of Glossier’s products. Stay tuned for more reviews!

4Love’s mission is to empower indigenous women through stable employment, profit sharing and education.

Similar to 4Love Clothing, Run The World was originally created to empower and inspire women. 4Love’s mission hits close to home for me and I am honored that I’ve had the opportunity to team up with them!

Lindsey Parry, Founder & Designer of 4Love Clothing, says “I wanted to give women a greater voice so they could make decisions that benefit them and their family. I wanted to give them an opportunity to learn how to read, to learn how to write and give them the feeling of self-worth!”

Lindsey’s journey started when she moved to The Republic of Panama in 2011 to create Sowing Seeds of Love, a Christian non-profit organization focused on empowering indigenous women and children through education, creative arts, reading programs, and team sports. Soon she would tie her love for fashion with her passion to help others. The idea was to create a fashionable clothing line that empowered the women of Panama through stable employment and fair wages. Lindsey taught the women how to use electric sewing machines to bring her designs to life.

Fast foward a few years later and 4Love Clothing has exceeded all of their original expectations, continued to grow and most importantly, empowered women along the way.

Ive had the opportunity to support and wear 4Love’s newest collection and I could not be happier. 4Love Clothing is currently doing a big Christmas & School Supply fundraiser for two orphanages they support and the children who live on the reservation. A portion of everything sold on 4Love Clothing will support this effort.

With the holidays approaching I hope we can all team up and support 4Love Clothing’s mission. Use code runtheworld to receive 40% off your entire purchase.

Thank you 4Love Clothing & Lindsey Parry.

By supporting one another, we can run the world.

Long regarded as mere child’s play, coloring isn’t just for kids anymore. Who would’ve thought coloring as an adult could be so relaxing. Well it definitely is.

My brand new amazon prime membership has allowed me to purchase adult colorings book for less than $8 each, tons of colored pencils & markers and I recieve everything within 2 days.

Coloring is meditative for me. Very much like yoga, this is my zen.

Hope you find the same peacefulness while coloring!
