can't stop browinsg online ... !

Gaaah I can't stop browsing clothing, accessories, makeup, pretty much ANYTHING online!

And look what I found on Forever 21 ... BOW RINGS!! I have ~3 bow rings that I purchased last year from a little seller in Boston, and now they are everywhere. FOR CHEAP! I paid ~$20 for mine, and these below are ~$3-6, all from Forever 21:

The connector rings are really cool, kinda rocker look?

To buy or not to buy... in an effort to curb my spending and to be a bit more charitable, I promised myself for every online purchase I make, I will donate an equal amount to www.charitywater.org Must be working 'cause I've only spent $17 so far!! Woot! Have you guys heard of this charity? 100% of donations go to building wells in Africa, and providing clean drinking water. Isn't it amazing that in this day and age, there are millions of people who don't have access to clean water?????? Any homeless person here can go into a mall and have clean water, but millions families in 3rd world country can't even find clean water if they walked a thousand miles. I'm not one to endorse stuff unless I really believe in it, and this is a cause I really believe in. If you have even $2 to spare, or you're participating in Lent and are looking for a way to give, please consider this organization. They are amazing, and they even make videos to show the building of the wells. I believe they have several celeb endorsers too..

Anyhow, TGIF!!!!!!!!!

  1. I love bow rings too - always an endless assortment at F21!

    And YES, what a great way to control spending! I am way out of line this month - that is such a great way of approaching spending/shopping - you have such a big heart and that Charity seems great - reminds me of one of CNN's "Heroes" this year. :)

  14. Look at all the bows!! =D
    I'm trying to look for this simple silver bow ring that I saw awhile back but I don't remember where it's from. BOoOO. You should take a picture of the two bow rings you got. Loved to see them.

    I think that it's great you're giving to a charity. I've never heard of this organization before. I will have to check out their site.

    Have a great weekend!
