Isabel Marant Pour H&M

Tis the season to be stylish! The collection is finally on sale 14th of November 2013 and I am obsessed! The french designer came up with standout pieces that are wardrobe essentials this season. A range that you can mix and match from knitwear to leather trousers.

In essence, the collaboration offers everyone the classic Isabel Marant style which is ethnic bohemia and street chic. A cool and effortless way of dressing. I'm seeing loads of monochrome in the collection, not usually my style but this is definitely an exception.

It's going to be crazy at H&M tomorrow. Don't forget to help my fellow Filipinos who are affected by super typhoon Haiyan before you go hit the shops. Text DEC to 70000 to give £5. Every little helps.

Here are some of my faves..
fisherman's cap £14.99
reversible bomber jacket £79.99
leather trousers £179.99
wool jumper £34.99
wool coat £99.99

Paralyzed Woman Learns To Walk Again - Inspirational Video

"You are alive. You're going to have to live and you should try to live a life worth living."

Cynthia can't walk. She was paralized from neck down but that didn't stop her from learning to walk again. With therapy costing her too much, she had to look online for options and discovered Karen Cheng's "Learn to Dance in a Year" video. There she found inspiration, she then realised that with sheer practice she could achieve her dream to walk again.

At a website called, Cynthia took a video of herself learning to walk - taking little steps each day. Watch her make progress in the video. "I may fall 7 times... but I'll get up 8." she says. Practice does pay off. Her story is truly inspirational. You can keep up with Cynthia and others who are also pursuing their dreams at the website.

GiveIt100 is a website where you take a video of yourself learning a skill for 100 days. It is co-founded by Karen X. Cheng. She came up with the idea from her viral dance video. A brilliant concept indeed! "This isn't a story about dancing, though. It's about having a dream and not knowing how to get there - but starting anyway." Karen explains. 

Do you feel like pursuing a dream? Why not give it 100? Capture your little beginnings and one day you will look back and say "Wow, I achieved something awesome!"

Here is Karen's inspiring dance video, it got more than 3 million hits on youtube:
