warm slumber

Yesterday Boston's had its first snow of the season... before Halloween! One thing I love about Boston is the season changes but I'm hoping we get to enjoy fall before more winter-like activity. This morning my car read 34degrees burr, getting there was not easy -- it was torture getting out from under my warm covers. On that note here are some dreamy bedrooms that inspired me. Enjoy! Happy Friday!

volunteer love

“Awareness-raising is a worthy activity unto itself, but the reality is that awareness without action results in little change. After all, awareness is supposed to inspire people to act!”

I'm excited to report that I have been selected as a Unite For Sight Global Impact Fellow, and I will participate at Crystal Eye Clinic in Ghana, Africa during February 1st-15th 2012.  Unite For Sight is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is the world's leader in socially responsible, effective volunteering and also a leader in providing high quality, cost-effective care to the world's poorest people. To date, Unite For Sight has provided eye care services to 1,200,000 patients, including more than 44,000 sight-restoring surgeries. While abroad, I will participate daily with the local ophthalmologists, local optometrists, and local ophthalmic nurses to eliminate patient barriers to care and to facilitate comprehensive year-round eye care for patients living in extreme poverty.

As a Unite For Sight Global Impact Fellow, I am fundraising at least $1800 to provide eye care for patients living in extreme poverty, but I hope to raise much more - My goal is $3000.  I would be so grateful for your support.  The average cost of a cataract surgery is $50, which means that $50 will enable someone who is blind to have their sight restored, and $250 enables five people to have their sight restored.  Any help is appreciated, and no amount will go unnoticed.  100% of your tax-deductible donation to Unite For Sight goes directly to restoring sight for patients living in extreme poverty.  Can you imagine impacting another person’s life in a more significant way?
I would be grateful for your support of Unite For Sight to provide eye care to many more patients living in extreme poverty.  My goal is to raise at least $5,000, which will provide 100 sight-restoring surgeries. By raising $5,000, I would also receive a volunteer of the year award from Unite For Sight. You may donate through my online fundraising page by clicking here.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.  I look forward to whatever support you can provide.

form <3

Insane love for dress forms-- almost bought one at the 'brim'-- one of the pics here.

My very own jewelry (mini) form here -- my moms the best, always looking out ;)

Other mannequin forms I found at the 'Brim' seemed photo worthy at the time. Can't wait for next years show already!
