Be the change you wish to see in the world

TOMS shoes.  I'm sure you've all heard of them, but if you haven't heard of them yet, you must be living under a rock.  Started in May 2006, by Blake Mycoskie, the company ideology is "one for one", meaning that for every pair of TOMS shoes that is sold, they will provide a pair to a child in need.

TOMS print campaign which showcases their unique design, while
explaining the philanthropic nature of the company.

Shoes & Skateboarding
(doesn't get better than that, for me atleast:)

My favorite pair, and one of my favorite quotes:
"Be the change you wish to see in the world"

That's right ladies.  TOMS has wedges.
They will forever be the must have summer shoes,
combining sexy with comfortable.

TOMS boots?
For serious.  Here we have the wrap boot, inspired by the colorful leg wraps worn by champion Argentine polo horses.  Made from an elastic wrap extending from the ankle, you can wear them with shorts or wind them up over your jeans.  Love.


 Feel good fashion, at its finest.
If you don't know, now you know.

cured meats, pepperoncini, various cheeses...oh my!

ANTIPASTO: translates to "before the meal", it is the traditional first course of a formal italian dinner. 

An array of savory treats, different flavors yet so cohesive, a great way to break bread with friends and family, and a quick fix to cleaning out your fridge and pantry :)
