Take it Easy

Hello my fellow Stylegazers! Happy Friday! This has been a long and exhausting week. Being a one-woman band is definitely not easy, but I have so much passion for what I do that the pros outweigh the cons. Still, every now and then I need to remember to take a breather. I try to take on as much as possible and I really push myself past what’s humanly possible. If you feel me – this is a reminder for you to spoil yourself a little this weekend. Go pamper yourself, take a walk in the nature, meditate, hit the gym, socialize… Do whatever makes you feel alive. And when the next work week starts; just TAKE IT EASY. Slow down, take a moment to breathe, observe…post-46-pic-4

The coat (Zara) is one of my favorite pieces, because it has this fun pattern (and texture) that goes with pretty much everything I own. I’ve completed the look with GUESS booties, Michael Kors bag and some cute jewelry.post-46-pic-13



post-46-pic-8If you want to give a holiday gift that shows that you care not only about the person you’re giving it to, but also about the world – take into consideration this beautiful ALEX AND ANI x Living Water International charm bangle. ALEX AND ANI will donate a portion of the proceeds toward safe water projects led by Living Water International – a nonprofit organization devoted to providing communities with desperately needed safe water. post-46-pic-10These beautiful bracelets are handmade in Rhode Island from recycled materials, covered in nickel-free gold or silver Rafaelian finish and absolutely expandable to fit every wrist size. The beautiful droplet charm, known as the Living Water Charm is a symbol of compassion and healing and a result of ALEX AND ANI and Living Water International collaboration. post-46-pic-9This wonderful partnership has been inspired by Paige Dellerman, a former East Greenwich High School student, who focused her 2013 senior class project on connecting ALEX AND
nnANI to Living Water International, as a way to combine her passion for this nonprofit organization with her desire to learn more about ALEX AND ANI philanthropic mission and charm crafting process.post-46-pic-5
