the love list ♥


vday essentials

Valentine’s Day is a little over a week away and although I’m not the biggest fan of the holiday, I admit it does make me feel warm and fuzzy.  And what’s so bad about celebrating love, really?  Whether you are single, in a relationship, crushing, dating, obsessing, sleeping with someone or married – here are some essentials to get your juices flowing!  Light a candle, put on your sexiest undies, spritz some perfume, and let love lead the way.  Do it for yourself!  xx jenny

Beyonce-HM1-720x450

Last week H&M released a new swimwear collection featuring the one and only, iconic Beyonce Knowles (aka Mrs. Carter).  The summer campaign features Beyonce in a few key pieces for the season and according to her are representative of, “the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind”.  In the press release made in March – H&M stated Beyonce is an ideal spokesperson for the campaign, demonstrating “the idea that all women can be all things: strong, vulnerable, sensual, maternal, fun, flirtatious.”  I couldn’t be more thrilled with H&M’s choice to feature Beyonce as a brand ambassador.  As a woman who emphasizes the importance of female empowerment through music, H&M will help send her powerful and vital message globally.  I’ll leave you with these lyrics from one of her songs….and a few beautiful shots from the campaign.  All swimwear available in stores now!  xx – #yoursoulstyle

Muzunga

Earlier this week I posted this pic on instagram of an amazing bag that I found in Harper’s Bazaar.  While flipping through the mag it noticeably stood out on the page thus beginning the deep dive into where this piece of perfection had been sourced from.  Enter Muzungu Sisters!  Dana Alikhani and Tatiana Santo Domingo are the co-founders of the brand and their mission is to “promote fair labour practices by showcasing artisan-crafted goods from around the world”.   The online store was born in 2009 and Dana and Tatiana’s goal is to “shine a light on the rare artistry found in various communities, and to stimulate those local economies, all while providing customers with timeless, hand-selected items of impeccable quality and style.”  I have become an instant fan of the product (and philosophy) and I’m thinking you might too!  Shop the site here and read the bio behind each item – everything has a story.  I’m currently coveting these. *above photo via here

Hello friends!  I hope you have had a lovely week.  Mine has been pretty cathartic since my corporate America career came to a close (yesterday was my last day as a 9-5’er).  I am ecstatic about this next step and look forward to new endeavors, especially the evolution of Your Soul Style.  You have all been a crucial part of this journey and have given me the courage to make this change so I thank you for that.  This community of women is what inspires me and the adventure has only just begun.  Stay tuned – I have just scratched the surface.  In the meantime, you know where to find me.  *photo via koray birand for harpers bazaar

Here are a few of my favorite links from the week that I thought you may enjoy!

I’ve watched this about 50x already this week.  THANK YOU from the bottom of our heart Brian (from sharkpig).  password: wonderful

I have always been a fan of these even though the past few years have trended differently.  What’s your take?

Can someone please tell me how I can get my hair to do this?

Now that I will be working from home, I’ll need some home office sprucing.  This and this look good.

I love when this happens before the season really takes off

I’ve been putting this off for a few weeks but I finally think I’m ready to do it again

If you’re a collector of items from around the globe, check this out

I hope you have a fantastic weekend planned ahead!  Stay beautiful, strong and inspired.

I’m a little late to the party when it comes to this Phillip Lim, “I Love Nueva York” tee since it was all over the street during Fall NYFW.   However in lieu of the upcoming DOMA and Prop 8 ruling by the Supreme Court this week  – I’m feeling extra thankful and lucky to be living in a state where my marriage is already recognized.  I am so proud to be a New Yorker and am hoping that the rights that I’ve come to know are extended to all and then some.

Sending tons of love, luck and support to all standing on the front line in Washington!
