I am constantly on the hunt for safer and better beauty products. Especially after reading FoodBabe's
"Be A Drugstore Beauty Dropout" recent article it really put everything into perspective. I am all for looking fabulous, obviously, but not at the cost of my health. I was happy to find Beautycounter.com this morning as I was reading Fashionista's article "What You Need to Know About Safe Cosmetics." I spend way too many hours reading labels and scouring sites for the right products. Beauty Counter has taken a bit of the leg work out by not only providing information but a site to shop for "good for you" beauty. Makes my getting beautified everyday a little easier.

I have a few weddings to go to this summer. I made it a point to find unique dresses to wear. I have been so tired of the usual designers and styles in cocktail and black tie style dresses. While on the hunt I came across the most darling lace dresses on Etsy. This site itself is starting to become a go to for me, when looking for fabulous items. It is the perfect way to support new smaller designers like Carousel Fashion. The lace styles are just stunning. The white styles are the most divine for a bride to be.

I have always had a strong desire to give back. A memory I have from growing up is at Christmas time when my parents watch us open all of our gifts. When we finished and my sister and I were excited to play, they stopped us for a moment and said pick your favorite. We quickly found what we loved most, mine a Barbie doll of course. Then told us, "ok now we are going to donate this to another little girl so she will have a gift too." As kids a slight disappointment came over us, but then a realization of how happy someone else would be, that made us smile. This moment and many others continued to have a huge influenced on my life.
I am excited to announce I have been selected to become a Global Giving ambassador which gives me a similar feeling of joy. I love that there are so many option to donate from local opportunities like providing low income kids with new technology to donating to helping women in India improve their small business. I am inspired every day to live generously through simple acts of kindness, donating clothing to a local shelter, and globally by build schools. I am over joyed to spread knowledge about Global Giving and my wish is it will inspire you too. How do you live generously, I'd love to hear your stories.

I would rarely team up a pair of black booties and a summer dress, just not a style I usually do. Yet, while at Cole Haan, Time Warner Center this week I saw a fabulous pair and tried them on more to see how they would look come Fall. I happen to have on my peach little dress for the day, when I looked in the mirror at the shoes, I was overall loving the outfit. You can see the full look here. Sometimes you really do have to step outside your own little fashion box to find a fabulous new look.
