Hurricane Sandy Relief

(American Red Cross)
While I may have lost power, water and cell service in the East Village, others in the outer boroughs and the beaches of NYC, Long Island and New Jersey were faced with devastating losses. My heart goes out to all who were affected and will continue to pick up the pieces after the winds and rain have subsided. 

If you're wondering how you can help victims of the storm, visit Give and Get NYC for a list of ways you can volunteer your time or donate money, food or clothing.

Stay warm, dry and safe this week NYC xo

Order Downtown Cookie Co. for Halloween and Thanksgiving Treats in NYC


Tired of boring candy corn and pumpkin desserts all season long? Thanks to Downtown Cookie Co.’s newly launched holiday season cookies, you can treat your friends and cutie trick-or-treaters to something special this Halloween or impress your family this Thanksgiving. Heck, why not do both?
The October Cookie of the Month is a bag of Candy Corn Bites - fresh, soft candy corn shortbread cookies. These are adorable to celebrate Halloween and the fall season. Send a bag to your friends or to the little kids in your family back home in the burbs, who’ll want more than sugary candy to celebrate the holiday. Each ‘corn’ is about two-bites worth of buttery baked goodness.
Now get ready for something pretty darn creative (and delicious). The November Cookie of the Month is Stuffing, because who said dessert has to come after dinner? Made with real stuffing (no poultry, of course), cranberries and cinnamon, this unconventional cookie is something you have to taste to believe. Share these Thanksgiving-themed treats with relatives you’ll miss during the holiday or selfishly enjoy these soft, savory yet sweet cookies with a mug of hot apple cider.

Downtown Cookie Co. ships anywhere in the country and you'll find their fresh cookies at various coffee shops around the city. xo

Date Safely With A Second Mobile Number From MyAKA

(MyAKA)

Have you ever given a guy your number at a bar only to regret it moments later when he said something creepy? Or have you endured an awful first date, followed by 3 voicemails and 10 texts the next day until you finally answer to tell this stalker you’re busy and not interested in a second date?
(What is MyAKA?)
For all of us who want our privacy from men we’ve just met, there’s now MyAKA, a second mobile number for your cell phone, to protect your personal information and identity. Your second mobile number will even be in your local area code, allowing two mobile numbers on the phone you already have - so no need for a second phone to purchase and manage contacts. And since the number is local, it won’t look like a fake to a guy you’ve just met who thinks you might stand him up.
(How Does MyAKA Work?)
My AKA provides real number protection on incoming and outgoing calls unlike forwarding services that you may have considered in the past. Your new assigned number is not linked to your information in any way - keeping you protected from creepers. You’ll even have full voice and text message support in the United States and Canada; so new guys you meet can still text you, if you’d like to avoid having a long phone conversation to tell him “adios”.
(Date safely with MyAKA)
Number blocking and unblocking is easy with MyAKA, so you can continue to use this service, even after it didn’t work out with Mr. Right Now. There’s even a Do Not Disturb feature which sends calls to voicemail and stores text messages when enabled. It’s simple to sign up and get started with MyAKA - no apps, downloads or Internet required. So, if you can’t afford a smartphone (or refuse to get with the technology trends) all features are controlled via text message.

Want a 7 Day FREE Trial? Wonder if there's a catch? Nope! With this special offer for my readers you can enjoy seven worry-free days of flirting with MyAKA, without even entering your credit card! And when you decide to keep the service, you can upgrade your number in two easy steps at the MyAKA site. It’s as simple as that to date safely this fall. Sign up today for a fun second mobile number with no-strings-attached.
