Fashion Against Aids

Inspired by C’s earlier post regarding H&M’s new green line, today also marks the 5th year launch of H&M’s Fashion Against Aids line. Since 2008 H&M has collaborated with international artists and illustrators to create a custom clothing collection to raise money and bring awareness to the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic. This year the line comes along with colorful tribal prints and fun accessories, and 25% of each purchase is donated to HIV/AIDS prevention. With the tribal prints and the extra benefit of helping out a non – profit, I look forward to browsing the line this weekend! Some of my favorites below.

 Check out the full line here.

Be Conscious

Last night, I was finally able to shop and try on some of H&M’s Conscious Collection and was pleasantly surprised.

For those of you that don’t know, the Conscious Collection, according to their website, is clothing made from “conscious materials for a more sustainable fashion future.” In other words they’re producing clothes made from organic cottons, linens and recycled materials such as polyester and wool and many more.

Killer Products – Frizz Fighters

m’s choice:

Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Ever Straight Flat Iron Spray

Even though it isn’t specifically a frizz fighter, it does exactly what I need. The spray includes Brazilian coconut oil and keratin proteins that seal and protect your locks. The avocado oils and cocoa butter smooth and tame those wild fly-aways without weighing down your hair. It keeps volume in my hair and doesn’t add that extra crunch or weight that gels do. I spray it on dry hair before I leave the house and it leaves my hairs smelling like coconuts all day!

Easy Boyfriend Short DIY

If you’re like me, at one point or another, your jeans will eventually rip in the inner thigh. It doesn’t matter how expensive my jeans are, they will always do this. So when this recently happened to yet another pair of my favorite jeans, I decided to try something new and turn what was left into a wearable pair of shorts. (This DIY can also be done with a pair of jeans that haven’t ripped).
