A Dash of Pink & Giveaway







Happy Friday, lovelies! It might be cold and nasty outside but that does not hinder me from wearing some light and calming colors, such as pink and white. This unique blend of contrasts is a personal favorite of mine. It creates such a ultra-feminine look. It’s a simple way to add a flattering pop of color and complements any monochromatic outfit effortlessly, don’t you agree?!

But before I forget: How awesome is this IPhone case from Kidogo Kidogo? Founded by Kim & Kristen Waeber, Kidogo Kidogo helps low-income woman in Tanzania to get the life-changing gift of a mobile phone. No matter who you are or where you live, a mobile phone makes your life better, don’t you agree? If you purchase a case from Kidogo Kidogo you can be assured that a woman in Tanzania will receive one cellphone, one SIM card to be connected to an operator, and last but not least cell phone credit to get started learning how to use her phone. Isn’t this so amazing?! Shop your IPhone case here now, and help a woman in Tanzania!

And speaking of making a life better…I have a BIG SURPRISE for you! You can WIN this amazing backpack from These Odds! All you need to do is follow me and These Odds on Instagram, like this picture and tag 3 friends who would also enjoy this backpack! The giveaway ends on Monday, November 10 so hurry up, and good luck!

As always, thanks so much for reading & have a wonderful weekend! See you back here on Monday!

  13. November 10, 2014 / 4:55 AM

    Rocked it!
    The jacket is so pretty, but I would have never expected to like it so much in an outfit!
    marvelous job, but what about a pair of Nike Air Max to go with this outfit?
    Bangin’ huh? <3

    Hi Vanessa! As you know, I am a big advocate of anything pink. And I agree, the pop of color adds such a unique and fresh vibe to the all-white outfit. You look beautiful!!! Very classy look. I hope you have a great day!!! ~ Lauren http://www.ginnysclosetblog.com

    Can’t even begin to get over this coat girl, it’s so fab! How do you find the whole “one size” thing? It definitely looks like a great fit, I just always worry with things like that. Eek!


    • November 10, 2014 / 2:33 PM

      The sizing is actually no issue. It fits me well but I would not recommend to anyone who is size L for instance. So, if you are S or M it should fit like a glove. Hope this helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. November 13, 2014 / 6:12 AM

    this look totally caught my eye and i’m not surprised! such a bright, vibrant look! so YOU ๐Ÿ˜€

    • November 13, 2014 / 10:15 AM

      You’re the sweetest, thank you!! xoxo
