It was this time exactly one week ago, when all of us East Coasters were preparing for Hurricane Sandy.  That same time a year ago, we had a big snowstorm that left a lot of us without power, a lot of trees down, but in all, nothing too major.  And I think that's the attitude everyone had going into this storm. 

We were wrong.  

I luckily only lost power for a day, no flooding, no trees down on our property.  We were lucky.  Just down the road trees were uprooted, people are still without power, and lots of damage done to people's homes. To the extreme flooding in NY and NJ, my heart goes out to any and everyone affected by the storm.


It's never too late to help.  Whether it's donating $10 to RedCross (by texting REDCROSS to 90999), volunteering your time at a local shelter, or donating clothes to people that may have lost theirs in the hurricane.  People are still suffering from Hurricane Sandy.  Don't know where to start?  Search your state website or do a basic google search on "Sandy Relief" to find ways to help, if you can!
-------------------
NOW GETTING PAST THE HEAVY STUFF!  Whew!

Let's talk about the 'fit.  Oxblood/Bordeaux/Burgundy, whatever you want to call it, I like it.  It's such a rich color, and perfect for fall/winter months, so I say yes to the trend.  What do you guys think?  Are you incorporating this color into your wardrobe this season?



The U.S. Presidential election is less than 2 days away and it's no secret who I'll be voting for... I usually go in on my beliefs/opinion/statistics on my twitter page, so I'll save you the rants (lol).  But I do encourage you to use your voice.  Go out and VOTE!


Have a great week guys!
