Happy International Women’s Day, My New Favorite Fragrance & A Shoe Sale!

Happy International Women's Day, My New Favorite Fragrance & A Shoe Sale!Happy International Women’s Day to all of the incredible women out here. Behind every woman, there’s a tribe of other women. I could not live without my women. My family, my best friends, my strong girl bosses – they are my support, my inspiration, my laughter, my shoulder to cry on and there, through the good and the bad. I often think, but probably don’t say enough, how much these women mean to me. Here’s my reminder to say it more!

Krystal has a great post on how to get involved for International Women’s Day.

Now through midnight on March 10th, NET-A-PORTER is having a pretty great shoe sale. Use code ‘SHOPSTYLE15’ to get 15% off some of your favorite shoes. There are some exclusions, but so many good choices.

My opinion, with some of you weighing in, on the Gucci belt.

I recently got this fragrance oil and it’s possible, it’s in my top three fragrances. Even Keith, who is quite picky, comments every single time I have it on. It reminds me of Le Labo Santal 33, but quite honestly, I may like it better.

Speaking of the scent, a bunch of you messaged me to tell me that the candle is absolutely incredible. I plan on getting that next!

Going to start reading this book next! Aside from hearing how great it was, I’ll be on Grace & Becca’s Podcast, Bad on Paper, discussing it next month! Very excited!

I absolutely love this post on having a ‘Not-So-Stranger.’

How to free yourself from negative thinking.

I’m all about this bag for spring/summer.

What’s so special about Golden Berries?

Lately, my go-to jeans. 

4 easy & affordable weekend getaways to book this spring.

Loving this home makeover idea.

These slingback pumps are so cute (& on sale!)

Too stressed to workout? Here’s why you should cancel that class.

A perfect, layering necklace.

This video is everything!

Wishing you all the best weekend! For those in the NYC area, I’ll be at Bloomingdales 59th tomorrow (Saturday, March 9th) from 1-3PM with Sanctuary Clothing.

    Hi Helena, I love to read about individuals that have inspired others and why. Maybe next year for International Women’s Day, would you be able to write a post about a women that you know and how she inspires you. Many individuals, from bloggers to celebrities, wished the beautiful women in their lives a wonderful women’s day. I did not read a single post, however, where a person outlined in some detail a woman that means a lot to them and why. For me, a lot of the wishes came across as disingenuous and self-promoting – something to post because everyone else is doing it. Please, don’t think that I am accusing you of being disingenuous. I am not. I have been a reader of your blog for a while and that is why I enjoy your blog so much – because you come across as a genuine soul. I would love to read about some of the women that you admire and why. I hope that I haven’t distressed you by my comment.

      Hi Sel! Not offended and I appreciate what you have to say and you definitely bring up a good point. I went into more detail on instastories – not sure if you saw, but for next year, I love the idea of focusing on my favorite (or a few) of my favorite women in an actual blog post.

      Thank you!

        Hi Helena, no, I did not see your Instastory as I only read your blog. I will have a look. Enjoy your day.


    Happy Women’s Day! Best hugs and wishes. Think positive!
