Summer Wedding Idea

Ever get that sinking feeling at an outdoor wedding? You've splurged on that perfect pair of shoes, or maybe you're the bride and hope that your shoes will be keepsakes when - SQUISH, STICK, SINK. Uh - for the next few hours you'll be aerating the lawn and hoping that you don't fall on your face.

I came across SoulMates heel savers and thought that they would make a much appreciated summer wedding extra for brides, bridesmaids and guests. They increase the surface area of your heel keeping you out of the grass, deck cracks and prevent gravel damage.

No Woman, No Cry

This week I had the pleasure of helping the Young Professionals for CARE with an intimate private screening of Christy Turlington Burns' award-winning documentary "No Woman, No Cry" and a panel discussion on maternal health at the Norwood Club in Manhattan.

"No Woman, No Cry" told the story of pregnant women and their caregivers in four countries as they struggle to beat the odds. The evening's panelists included Dallas Brennan Rexer, the producer of "No Woman, No Cry"; Doris Bartel, the acting team lead of CARE's Gender and Empowerment unit; and Praveen Prasad, a development specialist at TrustAfrica. 

Thank you to all who came out to support this sold out event.
