So happy and excited for today....There are two amazing amazing, well deserving brands I am so excited to share with you.....
First.... As some (or most) know, I love instagram. It's just so accessible, quick, and best of all, has become a beautiful and quick as the touch of a button platform where people can share a snippet of their daily lives! I do most of my posting there and love all those I follow or who follow me. It's crazy but wow, I have met some amazing people on that little app...One in which is Samantha. I have followed Samantha Broderick for some time now (we concluded we started following each other through a hashtag. Hashtag peeps! So no dissing on them... hehe) I've enjoyed following her daily posts and most of all enjoyed her beautiful photography! So we marked a date and she took some photos of me. I'll just let the photos do the talking...
Urban Outfitters dress, Free People skinny jeans and sunnies, F21 sweater, thrifted sandals
I so wish I had her talent of photography. She is so amazing at what she does! She had so many fun ideas. Not only that, but she is super adorable and sweet! A joy to work with. You need to check out more of her work on her website----- Samantha Brockerick Photography. She does not disappoint one bit.
Second involves this bag:
Isn't it pretty?!
I fell in love with Nena and Co. months and months ago. Their products are beautiful and what I love most is the story behind them! All are made in Guatemala one by one by native women. The material that covers this particular style of bag is made from Huipils which is the top garment of the women's dresses. All materials are recycled. Best of all, Nena and Co. give back. They help in ways that may include providing filtered purified water for a family or helping a child be able to get an education. Read more about them here. I love something with a story behind it. To think some beautiful Guatamalen woman made my bag (and most are one of a kind) or who may have worn it when it was a clothing garment, makes me love it even more!
Let me tell you my first impression of it. The leather is gorgeous. The material is so intricate and lovely. I love that it fits anything and EVERYTHING, and it is seriously light as a feather! I was so impressed a bag so big could be so so light.
Now something exciting for you!! Hop on over to my instagram account and search @runstylerun....Then look for the giveaway photo for all the details. (If it's not there yet, keep checking back...hehe) Nena and Co. is giving one of my followers a Day Bag of their own! These bags value over $200! Not something I would want to miss that's for sure... They've recently re-designed the handles and now their prettier than ever! Feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm excited for this!
Have a wonderful week friends!!
