I love a monochromatic look every now and again. This cranberry sweater and denim are both from H&M and I scored them last year on sale. I’ve only worn them together a couple of times, but I love how it’s received when worn together. People go crazy because of this color. Oh and this Helmut Lang asymmetrical coat? Probably the coolest thing I own in my closet.

Cranberry is a great color and even more interesting fruit. It’s tart but good for you. Sort of like the truth. A lot of times we avoid it but we should take it. After all, it’s good for us.

This month’s #FiestaMovement is Social Activism. I’m really into shopping and getting “nice” things. But the truth is, while I’m far from rich, I have more than enough and make more than enough to give back. And to be honest it was something that I had never done. Last weekend, Hubs and I made a budget and went out and bought some toys for under privileged kids. And I have to tell you, I should’ve done this waaaaaaaaaaay sooner. We get so caught in the little things for ourselves, that we don’t even realize that the little things for someone else can make a big difference. I certainly plan on doing more giving throughout 2014. And not just during the holidays. Anytime. Just because.

Have you had the chance to do your own social activism this holiday season? Or even this year? How have you given back?
