What Can You Do To Help?

On my way to NY for a job, the images of what is happening with the earthquake in Haiti are haunting me. As soon as I land will drop off my bag and meet Lorraine Alexis (pic below visiting orphanage in Haiti last summer). She works for a relief organization and is a medical student who has been visiting Haiti for several years. I’m hoping she may be able to tell me more and I could help in some way…

So I got off the plane, dropped my bag off at my apartment and straight to the train to meet my Haitian friend Lorraine Alexis as I wanted to hear firsthand her thoughts on family, friends and colleagues in Haiti. What I learned I can hardly put in words. Amongst the midst of chaos and uncertainty, Lorraine and fellow Haitian relief worker Cedric Desir (Voices of Haiti), were kind enough to give me their personal insights involving the chaos they and their family and friends are experiencing right this very minute. While they shared with me stories of lost and missing loved ones, what astounded me the most was their focus and hope filled plans for a better future for their homeland.

I am truly inspired.

Unfortunately my friends wouldn’t let me play on their team at a local football friendly (think they didn’t trust my ball skills….)

but instead offered me a part in the cheerleading squad….

Our gear? Tiny shorts, lightsavers(complete with the woosh and lights,whoop whoop!) and hardhats!

I was lucky enough to be invited to a Valentino party earlier this week at The Boom Boom Room in The Standard Hotel, NYC. I love any excuse to dress up and it was a great night to see friends and catch up in the new hotel space and see the amazing skyline of NYC

It’s Fall

Its Fall, a beautiful time of the year when the leaves turn from green to red, orange and yellow.
Our collection of old bicycles (lovingly saved from the garbage) are perfect for exploring the neighbourhood when friends visit from the city.

My Aussie Weekend

1 Heart2 Loading ... Loading ... thanks for all your comments 1

When I say how much I love the lifestyle in Oz, THIS is what I’m talking about! A long weekend on a beautiful coast with beers, barbecues, mates, (attempted) surfing and….. fishing! Out on the boat I caught a flathead, and a bream, both of which found their way onto the grill for dinner, while the sunrise and sunsets over Boomerang Beach made good old London town look more than a little shabby….
