Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser a SUCCESS!!!


We raised over $800 and gave it to the Jersey Strong Charity back around Thanksgiving. It was an amazing success. We had a raffle, collected money at the door, drank and ate. Everyone received a gift bag for coming and the amount of donations I received for the shore was AMAZING!!!!!

There were so many great Etsy Shops that helped out as well and donated their original pieces to the fundraiser to help raise money at our event. I cannot express how grateful I am to those involved and who contributed for all of their help. I wouldn't have been able to raise that kind of money without everyone who helped me.

Here are just a few of the pictures from the event....

Some pictures from the event...




And our pictures from when we brought down the donations!!!! This store was PACKED!!! Totally amazing things happening down there and I am SO glad I could be apart of it.



I hope everyone who came enjoyed their time and we definitely are glad we were able to donate a lot to people who needed it so badly. 

xooxo

Hurricane Sandy and The Jersey Shore

 
Seaside Heights, New Jersey, Summer 2012.


This is my home away from home. I spent a lot of time there this summer. I cant believe it looks like this now:

October 2012

I feel very badly for everyone who lives there and now that the shore that we knew when we were growing up is forever going to be changed and is destroyed.

Governor Christie put it the best way that we will rebuild it again but it will not be the same.

I am looking for ANY place to go and volunteer at but they are not letting just any regular people go down there yet.

I will be starting a fund raiser sometime soon once red cross allows me to and I will put it up here, hopefully we can make a difference. I will be going down there soon to go donate a bunch of things, so hopefully my friends can help out.

If anyone have any reccommendations or has donated, please let me know so i can pursue this.

They need our help... along with the Rockaways and Breezy Point..

Superhero Parenting


photo weheartit

Many women talk about feeling an overwhelming pressure to be all things to everyone and complain about suffering from the burden of having to live up to incredibly high expectations. Men are also suffering in our increasingly fast-moving world where having a good job and being a fantastic parent and spouse are becoming part of an all-inclusive package.

Childcare responsibilities are now being shared by both partners, leaving men and women feeling the pressure of generation superhero, dashing from the office to the playroom and feeling excessive amounts of guilt for not spending enough time in either. So why are we all feeling such intense pressure to perform?

If you doubt the existence of the ‘superhero parent’ phenomenon, take a look at the various parenting forums and blogs online.  The internet is awash with men and women comparing time-saving tips and tricks for juggling career, family and friendships. This race of apparent super-parents are micro-managing their way to martyrdom.

But holding down a great job, active social life and happy family is no easy task, no matter how many appliances and household gadgets you buy. Work environments are becoming more demanding, with the average number of working hours increasing year on year. Factoring in commuting times, out of hours social events and buzzing blackberries, it’s not uncommon for more than half of our waking hours per week to be absorbed by work. 

The number of hours in the day hasn’t undergone a revision recently, and yet men and women are now feeling the pressure to work more hours than ever before, run and maintain a household, keep up numerous friendships and still look gorgeous and well-groomed on a day to day basis.

Working parents are crumbling under the constant pressure of keeping all the plates spinning. It’s not easy to juggle the corporate world with the demands of looking after children. Thankfully, dress codes in many offices are starting to relax. A smart pair of chinos, a tailored mens jacket and a pair of stylish shoes make the perfect parent to employee outfit.

    In for the Kill, La Roux


    In for the Kill, La Roux
    We can fight our desiresBut when we start making firesWe get ever so hotWhether we like it or notThey say we can love who we trustBut what is love without lust?Two hearts with accurate devotionsAnd what are feelings without emotions?

    I'm going in for the killI'm doing it for a thrillOh I'm hoping you'll understandAnd not let go of my hand(x2)

    I hang my hopes out on the lineWill they be ready for you in timeIf you leave them out too longThey'll be withered by the sunFull stops and exclamation marksMy words stumble before I start[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/in-for-the-kill-lyrics-la-roux.html ]How far can you send emotions?Can this bridge cross the ocean?

    I'm going in for the killI'm doing it for a thrillOh I'm hoping you'll understandAnd not let go of my hand(x2)

    Let's go to warTo make peaceLet's be coldTo create heatI hope in darknessWe can seeAnd you're not blinded by the light from me

    I'm going in for the killI'm doing it for a thrillOh I'm hoping you'll understandAnd not let go of my hand
