One of my favorite brands from a young age has been Volcom. Not only are they very fashion forward in a laid-back vibe, Volcom is also known for their unique art and tasteful music.

One thing I really enjoy reading is their blog Volcomunity: Telling her story. There are seven different groups of women who write blogs regularly. Not only are they very interesting to read, it really inspires me to work hard so I could be one of them one day.

Go to thier website and get some inspiration.

Happy Mundane Monday!

Forever 21


For the last couple years i've been shopping at Forever 21, where I can purchase anything from casual to formal. The BEST thing about Forever 21 is you buy everything at a great value. I can also rely on Forever 21 to keep my wardrobe colorful, as well as accessorized.

Forever 21 is where I purchase almost all of my jeans. At such an affordable price (usually $15 or less) I can buy any color, or style and not feel guilty. Most people think these jeans will only last less than a year, BUT i've had most of my jeans for 4 years and they are still good. The only reason I may throw them out is because I'm getting bigger :/.

If you need a quick outfit for an affordable price, Forever 21 is the place to be! Go check their website out here.

One for One: One Person Buys. One Person is Helped.

For many Americans, we take food, shelter, and clothing for granted. In other parts of the world, these type of things are considered a luxury.

Did you know in developing countries, children must walk barefoot for miles at a time to get to school, fetch fresh water and seek any medical help? Did you know that most of these children or even more are at risk of injury from walking on rough terrain and are not able to afford medical attention to treat these wounds?

This is how TOMS was formed. An American traveler and entrepreneur, Blake Mycoskie, saw these realities for himself during a vacation in Argentina. He was motivated to create a solution that would have a direct impact on a child's life, so he created TOMS Shoes with "one simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need." It was a huge success, as he was able to give out over 10,000 pairs of TOMS shoes to the children he met in Argentina. As the success has continued, TOMS has been raising awareness and has become a global brand, selling in many countries and giving out shoes in several countries, enabling children to dream of a better life.

To continue his success, Blake wanted to expand his business and help basic human needs that were not met in these poverty areas, so he started eyewear. Eye sight is a fundamental need. The loss of sight has a dramatic impact on a person's life - and on his or her family and community. With the eyewear line, TOMS is giving more than just a pair of sunglasses. TOMS will be giving the person in need the medical treatment he or she may need. TOMS will help these people in one of three ways: Medical Treatment, Prescription Glasses, or Sight Saving Surgery.

Be one with us in raising awareness about the problem. Participate in the One for One Movement and be part of the solution.

Booty, Booty, Booty, Booty- Rockin' Everywhere!

It's Fall shoe time!

As we (slowly) pack away our warm-weather wardrobe to make room for Fall jackets, pants, and dresses, we're taking inventory of our shoe artillery.

With Fall here and winter slowly creeping up on us it's time to find new boots, but the problem is what kind? Do I get the warm comfy ones? The high-sexy cut ones? Normal flat ones? or the in-style combat ones? So many choices, but which will last me the whole fall/winter season?

Also, where is the best place to buy boots? I like some of the boots from Forever 21, although I know it won't last for more than one season AND they don't usually have very good soles, so I will be slippin' and sliddin' everywhere. I do like boots from Urban Outfitters, Aldo, and Nordstrom as well.
