Find a Cause…..

A goal of mine since 2005 has been to walk or volunteer for a cause. There are people out there who need money raised for rehabilitation and/or research for their illness or disability. I’ve learned to be extremly thankful for where I am today. You do not have to be rich or a celebrity to do good for others. I have participated in 2 fundraisers in the last year and each fundraiser was successful, fun and for a very worthy cause.

On Sunday, May 3, 2009 I joined more than 16,000 walkers and volunteers across Illinois in the Walk MS 2009. The money raised at the Walk MS 2009 supports programs, services and vital research into the cause and cure of multiple sclerosis.

Hello from Los Angeles…

Hello,

I’ll be stopping by every now and then with some of my finds out here in Los Angeles…thanks Lush360 for having me!

I live and work in downtown L.A., and let me tell you, it is nice to get to walk to work every day! I watch the news as I get ready for work and feel so lucky that I’m not like all the other Angelenos, commuting across town in their car, fighting with traffic and diminishing their lifespan over stress. What price do I pay in exchange for this stress-free commute? Looking fashionable, is pretty tough to pull off when you’re wearing white sneakers with your killer work-outfit. It looks pretty silly! I refused to be one of those other girls walking around with white sneakers, so I bought myself a pair of ballerina flats that would match with virtually any outfit and were comfortable to walk in.

The only problem with wearing flats is that I was ruining my nice work pants that had been hemmed to perfection for my heels. I was dragging them up and down Fourth Street and it hurt me dearly to see them slowly start to get ruined to the point where they were eventually unwearable. I tried stapling my pants, paper clipping them, rolling them up, but to no avail.

In come Zakkerz!!! Zakkerz are my new best friends and were created by two girls who commuted to work in New York. They solved the pant destruction dilemma by coming up with an effective, temporary pant roll-up wrap. They’re discreet so that you can maintain your fierceness on your way to work.
