As you may know, April was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. A walk across the Brooklyn Bridge happened on April 29th + Brooklyn Fashion Week was there championing the cause. The walk was a way to spread awareness of a serious problem + take a stand against Domestic Violence.
Denim Day Story with Fashion Week Brooklyn
We took to the streets of Williamsburg to raise awareness for the up-coming Denim Day NYC with Fashion Week Brooklyn. See photos below!
The time has come. We are in April, which is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. That means you can do something to stand up for a cause you believe in. Domestic Violence is rampant throughout the world. Show your support April 29th + walk across Brooklyn Bridge to City Hall with tons of other fashionistas, bloggers, celebrities, students + designers. Take a photo of yourself in your denim outfit + use the hashtags #DenimDay #DenimDayNYC #FWBK. Fashion Week Brooklyn is championing the cause in New York.

This week my spotlight is on an organisation called Charity: Water. Operating from New York, Charity: Water was founded by Scott Harrison in 2006 + aims at providing clean drinking water to people in developing countries.
There are 748 million people on the planet who don’t have clean water. It’s hard to imagine what 748 million people looks like really, but one in nine might be easier. One in nine people in our world doesn’t have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without.
Throwback Thursday to the iconic Rockefeller Plaza when I was in New York in Feb!
St Henry’s Cathedral in the heart of Bayonne is 125 years old this year. I found it to be such an inspiring church. As a Christian, it’s very important for me to seek out significant churches when in a new area. Their address is 82 West 29th Street Bayonne, New Jersey. At the moment we are going through Lent. Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. In Western Christianity, Ash Wednesday marks the first day of the season of Lent which begins 40 days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count).The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer, penance, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial. Here is an interesting article written about the pope’s suggestions on preparing for confession. The Bible does not mention the custom of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found in 2 Samuel 13:19; Esther 4:1; Job 2:8; Daniel 9:3; and Matthew 11:21. When I was in New York I also took a visit to St Patrick’s Cathedral. Some more articles on Lent:
