Went to the Jersey shore last weekend to volunteer post Sandy. I was seriously shocked to see how bad it still was – three weeks out. It was heartbreaking . Too many homes still didn’t have power and there were so many families that lost everything. It was incredible though, to see the strength and support of the community as everyone came together to help out and rebuild.

There are lots of ways to still help out if you can’t volunteer and here are just a few!
-Donate directly to the different to the towns like the town of Belmar here or the American Red Cross
-Directly purchase items for those in need using their registry via amazon here
Man friend and I were really behind the ball and hit up the grocery last night – at midnight.
Not much left but we did find…
So we stocked up! Have you tried cannoli yet? It’s my new favorite. I spent the day taking full advantage of my sandycation by doing some serious online shopping and have discovered:
1. Uniqlo now has an online store
2. Zara HOME
How did I miss these two launches? Especially Uniqlo…
Anyways, hope everyone is staying safe during Sandy on the east coast!!!
