I was googling about when I came across this website: http://www.stylewillsaveus.com/

I have been looking at http://www.treehugger.com and I found what they call "the Best Makeup: Tarte Cosmetics
It’s difficult to find an eco-conscious cosmetics line that pops with color when most are selling more reserved shades and tones. And that’s where Tarte comes in. The makeup line is like the green version of Maybelline, offering up colorful varieties of mascaras, eyeshadows, pencils, blushes, bronzers, foundation, glosses, lipsticks and more--but without the side of parabens, petro-chemicals, phthtalates, sulfates and synthetic fragrances. Even more, the company is helping sustain the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest through the use of organic acai extract in their products—proving that it is possible to combine good looks and eco-smarts for a killer equation.-Jessica Root"

No wonder the headline "Second Life: Diana Jenkins's Refugee-to-Riches Story" made the front cover of W's July 2010 publication! Diana (Sanela) Jenkins seems amazing and driven.

I love to hear about women whom take initiative. This story left me inspired to do more. Inspired to volunteer. She is a courageous woman whom left her family and her country to live a better life.

I feel like I can’t even do her justice if I try to describe how wonderful she is.
Read the article HERE.

The article is fabulous and will make you feel like you can do more for others in your lifetime. Well written articles on inspiring lives are not usually in the pages of W. Usually, the pages of W are filled with expensive baubles and fake models. (Fake models = airbrushed pictures) Giving a glimpse into a lifestyle that I cannot have, but would like to in the future. I was first attracted to this magazine when I was in college and modeling. The large, glossy pages with the clean layouts and the gossip in the back made me fall in love with W. The gossip is gone, but the magazine is still large, glossy, and clean. "Clean" to me does not mean it has no nudity - Art has nudity and so does W - But, "Clean" to me pertains to the design of the photos when showcasing fashion pieces.

Diana Jenkins is not only a woman with great fashion, but also a woman with great passion to connect people and help others. I have added another item to my list of things to do in my lifetime: Meet Diana (Sanela) Jenkins.

I am taking a 30 day challenge of not wearing jean pants. I LOVE jeans. I absolutely adore them because they are the perfect accessory to tone down and create a casual, effortless, laid back look. I have decided to hang up my jeans and wear all that I can out of my closet to make the most of what I've got. I'm one of those shoppers where I will see an item and think to myself "That is so cute! I would totally rock this on the right day!" Well, who is to say that today is not that day?

So, I've decided to go 30 consecutive days without wearing any jean pants. I have lots of jean skirts and jean shorts, but I consistently wear only jean pants. I have a pair of brown corduroys, which are necessary for a month's trial. I have pictures of my first two days:

I have so many cute things and accessories, yet I have recently been going straight to my jeans and t-shirts. Don't get me wrong; I love them! But, I feel like it is the time to make a change. The change does not have to be expensive, but it does have to be challenging.

Day 1: Blue/green plaid button up with a black tank under. Natural hemp bracelet by Natural Bling. Jean skirt and Steve Madden peek-a-boo heels.

Day 2: Plaid grey/red/white/black jumper with black tights, guess wedges, and a black handkerchief from my grandmother made into a bracelet.

Here I go! 30 days without any jean pants!!
