This week has been crazy and maybe my computer knew it. It wouldn’t let me login to my blog and I didn’t really have the time to figure out why. But hey I’m here now and that’s what counts, right? I managed to get in a long overdue pedi finally and i thought these sandals deserved a date with my feet. I can’t remember the name of this OPI color, but it makes me wish I was on a Maui Beach, so I’ll call it Maui Pink. Fitting, no? Not a big fan of snakeskin, but the Chinese Laundry sandals were just too cute to pass up. Hopefully, Seattle will start to average higher than it’s one day of sun per week soon. Happy Friday Everyone~!
The devastation in Japan is beyond heartbreaking. Every day the news seems to worsen with the body counts on the rise and the threat of nuclear meltdowns on dangerously high alerts. This blog is normally a place of musing, but Japan is on my mind and I believe it should be on everyone’s mind. What is happening in Japan is being described as the nation’s “worst crisis since World War II.” But it’s not enough to pay attention, it requires collective action on all of us because this is about our humanity. I hear a lot of people talking loosely about sending thoughts and prayers, which are great but I hope those thoughts and prayers are also followed with action. The best immediate action is to donate to organizations that are working in Japan. I know money is tight for everyone in our current economic state and trust me, I’m no baller but the strength is in our collective effort. Donate whatever you can, every bit helps. Please donate to any of the following 100% legit organizations.
1. Red Cross, 2. Global Giving, 3. Mercy Corps, 4. Save The Children, 5. Medical Teams International
For bloggers everywhere, I urge you to spread the word.
