Alternative + Olivia Wilde: The Making of the Message Bag

Actress turned Activist Olivia Wilde and Production expert Barbara Burchfield has teamed up with Alternative Apparel to create a cross-body bag benefiting students in Haiti. All proceeds go towards the Academy for Peace & Justice school. The clip further explains the importance.

After visiting Haiti (Wilde) and cherishing her backpack. She knew that creating one for multi-purpose use was a grand idea. Purchase your bag and support child in Haiti. There's even a cool tag for you to personalize. The Message Bag is priced at $138.00, made in army green, accented with brass functions, and leather trimming.

The bag is nice and serves for a beautiful cause, but it is quite costly. College students are always trying to be involved in community projects, this is sadly one most may not be able to part take in. For the average student it's not affordable; at least I know I can't afford it. Just something to think about.


Givenchy Parks the Party.

The new Givenchy Fall Campaign ad, just made its way to everyone's laptop! The campaign is meant to capture the essence of a rave party, mentioned in WWD. I would have liked to see more of a party environment, not just a single, non-danced girl. It played to safe. Stella Tennant is the lead, featured with: Joan Smalls, Stef van der Laan, Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott, and Rodrigo Braga. Styled by Carine Roitfeld and captured by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Visit  Givenchy to see more of the Fall/Winter 2012 collection.


Blue Sky

As Summer approaches, I am falling more and more in love with blue hues. Specifically Ice Blue. On a monthly Target shop, I witness this beautiful Ice Blue Sally Hansen Nail Lacquer.(stay tuned for the color on MandeeMiniMovie: The Amanda Show). Needless to say "it got, got!" Of course I bought it! I called a few people too. *Nail girl problems. It's a little more thick than what I like. So my toes is selling all the shine now.
In other news, my next step is to find some Espadrilles. Here's a few that caught my eye. (Note: they all are not Ice Blue, but it works. lol)

Still Me.

Lilo to Liz

As excited as a was for the premiere of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, I had not heard any present news regarding the TV Movie. Thanks to the Lifetime Network, the release of the first stills have been captured and was release on yesterday. I'm so thrilled to LiLo back on her game! She could of looked more stunning. At adolescent, she served as my Role Model. So to see fame back in her corner, makes me very happy!

my exact Moment.

I absolutely love this commercial! It embodies my life at this "exact Moment." With everything happening so fast: finding a job, almost concluding my College education, getting a new apartment, etc. I just want this year
of 22 years to pause for a quick second. I just want to make sure I'm enjoying everything, and living at life to its fullest potential. Lucky for me, my life is full of surprises, so this commercial/song will stay my theme.
