When there are this many beautiful leaves on the ground, the obvious thing to do is to pick them up and throw them in the air in celebration of Fall, right?! So, I’m back in New York now, and the weather is very different from Seattle. It was freezing when I stepped off the plane at 6am yesterday morning, but it was bright and sunny and the city felt hopeful. I feel so incredible lucky that my apartment, for the most part, was spared from the storm, but my thoughts are constantly with the people less fortunate. And, since I am traveling a lot over the next two months and am not around to physically help out, I have been trying to figure an alternative option. There is Red Cross, which is great, but when I saw this list that my dear friend Keiko Lynn posted on her blog (see below) I jumped at the chance to donate, and to share it with you all. Because every bit counts. xo

Via Keiko Lynn’s Blog:

  • Volunteer on site or at a local shelter, or donate supplies. This site is a great hub for volunteer and donation information – and you can find up to the minute updates on their twitter @occupysandy. If you don’t have a car, they  arrange transportation from specific locations. If you want to donate supplies, check the lists for needed items – they’re updated regularly.
  • Donate to help feed hot meals through NYC food trucks. They’ve been driving to badly affected areas and feeding hot meals to thousands of hungry people who were affected by the hurricane. With this crazy cold weather, canned goods aren’t going to cut it. Give the gift of a hot meal.
  • Donate to Masbia soup kitchen. They’re feeding the seniors at the Park Slope Armory, as well as other locations. They also feed people in need, year round.
  • Donate to Robin Hood’s Sandy Relief Fund. They support over 200 of the best NYC programs to fight poverty year round and are transparent about their costs; they have a four star rating on charity navigator. Your donations will go toward relief for hurricane victims, and they’ll see to it that it will go where it’s needed most. You can also view a list of the programs they support here.
  • Organize a fundraiser, bake sale, or at least share links of twitter and facebook! Keiko’s cousin Shana and a group of volunteers (parents and children alike) were able to raise over $6,000 for Masbia with a couple of bake sales near Prospect Park.

Helena and I teamed up with Chevrolet in conjunction with their new 2013 Chevy Malibu, and Isaac Mizrahi, who created a capsule collection based on this adorable cherry-red ride. He went all around the country, visiting four different women who acted as his “muses” and gathered up inspiration from their lives and closets to create this collection. I can’t wait to see what he came up with. Luckily we won’t have to wait long, since the show debuting the collection is next week!
You will also be able to check out LivingSocial, which has created a page for Malibu Style, and offers daily deals based on the cities where he met with his “muses”. The collection will go on sale in mid-October, and will be available on LivingSocial Shop, so stay tuned. And don’t forget to watch Isaac in action in these cute videos, herehere and here!

So, to kick off this fun program, Helena and I decided to take the car out for a spin and go on a mini road trip. We settled on Warwick, New York, where we went apple picking, checked out pumpkins for the upcoming holiday and basically just took in the beautiful scenery upstate.
We stayed at one of my favorite B&Bs in the area called, the Inn at Stony Creek. If you ever have a chance to get out of the city, I highly recommend heading to this little gem of a place. The owners are amazing (cooked us customized breakfasts) and the decor and feel is so charming and cozy.

   We took the lovely Keiko Lynn with us to take our photos and the three of us had quite the lovely time. Although we were only there two days, we left feeling refreshed and refueled.

For those of you who missed Keiko’s amazing Makeup Monday yesterday, I thought I would re-share her original post with you all for fun! I came to her wondering how to wear a bold lip with minimal makeup, and this is what she came up with. I thought it was pretty genius and now want to rock this look all the time. I love being her model and am always so impressed with the outcome when we’re done. Thanks Keiko! xo

Due to the on-again-off-again drizzly weather we had this past weekend, I pretty much lived in this cozy yellow knit. I love how bright and cheerful it is, especially on a gray and overcast day. Saturday night I met Keiko and Helena for a yummy dinner in Park Slope, then indulged in some much needed couch time at Keiko’s, snuggled up with her sweet cats, Kitty Boos, Vester and Lacy, and her pretty puppy, Miku. Animals and great friends really are the best, don’t you think? xo
