“Tue” Fab: 5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

Laced Up and on the Move

I have been trying to become a true runner for yearssss. Last year, with my sister’s encouragement, I finally completed a 5K during the AIDS Run Walk. It was a sweaty, ugly completion, but at least I crossed the finish line. With my 2013 accomplishment in mind, I jumped at a couple of opportunities to get my reignite my interest in running while supporting two separate but worthy causes: fighting hunger and supporting children’s hospitals.

After completing my first 5K!

After completing my first 5K!

Today marks the beginning of the Miracle Marathon, a cool event to support my local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. Before you fall out of your seat, this is not a traditional marathon. Instead of running a bajillion miles at one time, everyone just commits to run one mile/day from September 16th to October 12th (my birthday!). If only all marathons could be so simple, right?! I’m looking forward to this running event because it is such a simple idea and will help keep me on track for the next item on my fall race agenda.

Run10FEED10

That item would be Run 10 FEED 10 on October 19th in Chicago. I have a confession about this event. I signed up a couple of years ago but never ran it. *winces* So, I have to redeem myself and prove that I can complete a 10K, even if my legs and lungs turn against me. I’ve been doing training runs, but am nowhere near where I need to be. Thank God for my trusty dusty training plan. It is giving me the confidence that I need to prayerfully knock out these miles.

With all of this running, I have been on the prowl for a great pair of running shoes but I’ll save that for another post. In the meantime, I would love to hear any suggestions for becoming a better runner. Help!

VIDEO: Rachel Roy Unveils New FEED India Tote

Two of my fav fab givers recently teamed up to bring us a handbag that I’m sure will be a summer staple in my wardrobe. On the inaugural edition of her new online magazine, The Life, designer Rachel Roy announced that she and FEED co-founder Lauren Bush Lauren collaborated on a limited edition FEED tote created to help fight hunger in India. For every tote sold, 100 school meals will be provided to children throughout the country.

Cute, right? You can pre-order your bag on Rachel Roy’s website now. Don’t take the chance of catching this bag at a later date because it will sell out. I’m still kicking myself for missing out on the RR “Kindness is Always Fashionable” Ghana clutch. Lesson learned and I am doing better this go around.

If you want to learn more about this partnership and/or just gawk at these two amazing women, check out the video of their conversation below.

New FEED x DKNY Survival Collection

Lauren Bush Lauren

I have a confession to make. I would love to trade lives with Lauren Bush Lauren for at least one week. She’s beautiful, her father-in-law is Ralph Lauren, and she’s a TOP NOTCH fabulous giver. In case you have NO idea who I’m talking about, LBL is one of the founders of FEED, a company that produces some pretty cool bags, accessories and tees to support a plethora of causes and organizations like UNICEF.

Last week, they posted the below image on Instagram and I was all fired up to blog about their FEED India collection. I mean, it’s the perfect sunny day print!

But, before I could start drafting the post, I found out about their new all-black FEED x DKNY Survival Collection. This collection totally makes me think of Batman and Gotham City, which I guess is appropriate given its nod to the Big Apple. LBL told WWD that, “We wanted to do things that women could really get a lot of use out of…and that were really a good hybrid of [Feed and DKNY’s] design aesthetics.”

The collection consisting of rainboots, a tote, a diaper bag and an umbrella; and will provide children with emergency food through the United Nations World Food Programme. Interested in snagging one (or all) of these pieces? They are available at select DKNY stores, Bloomingdale’s and on Net-a-Porter.com.

While definitely chic-meets-utilitarian, the only thing that I would be inclined to snag are the boots. What about you? Do any of these pieces catch your eye?
