Fall is here - How to Help Puerto Rico

Yes, fall season is here! But not quite for us west coast peeps. We are starting to feel the cool breeze creeping in (Finally!) but I love the fact that we can still get away with summer staples, like these go-to slip-on mule flats; you guys, I live in these! Because I'm a mom, I'm all about comfort but being stylish at the same time. I love that I can wear these flats with a pair of denim shorts or a skirt and still feel "dressed up" while not trying so hard, which is a win-win in my book!

On another note, you may be wondering why I've been MIA lately...see below.

If you've been watching the news lately, I'm sure you've heard my beautiful island, Puerto Rico, is struggling with the aftermath of hurricane Maria, and to be quite honest...it felt weird to post about fashion and style. Although, I thank God ALL my family members (including my husband's side) are safe, it breaks my heart to see the devastation it has caused the island. Imagine not having a roof over your head, water, or electricity for months! Can you imagine?! Some of my family members have lost it all but rest assure, we Puerto Rican's, are fighters and believe that God is always in control! We will overcome. 

How to Donate 

I'm all about sharing organizations that will provide direct help to those in needs; hence, the late post (had to do thorough research before I shared). 

Unidos Por Puerto Rico: United for Puerto Rico is an initiative brought forth by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, with the purpose of providing aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Maria. 

B Strong:  Bethenny Frankel, Real Housewives of New York, her B Strong Program, are going above and beyond for the Puerto Rican people. She has managed to get over 20+ planes with thousands of goods to the island and has documented the whole process in her social media sites, which is what I love to see. She's a go-getter and doesn't let anything get in her way. I LOVE what she's doing for the Puerto Rican people! 

You Caring: Organized by Ricky Martin. The Ricky Martin Foundation team on the ground is already working with the local government, local volunteers and the First Lady of Puerto Rico to provide urgently needed food, water, clothing and medical supplies.

You guys, if you donate at least a dollar, you have no idea the difference you're making. Just place yourself in their shoes...just imagine...any little bit counts!
