Blessings & Sending Blessings

Spent the day running around from meetings to meetings, and despite the weather we were quite efficient with our time. I’ve always thought that having a car was the most convenient & efficient, but I realized that sometimes convenience can be the most inefficient thing. Although I do prefer driving over walking, I have to admit that we got WAY more done on a timely manner walking to all 7 meetings we had today!

One more day of meetings before heading back to LA! Have a beautiful day everyone!!!

NOTE- my heart goes out to all those people that have been hit by Hurricane Sandy. My best friend & sister live in NY, and they finally got their electricity & power back, and I do realize that there are some people that still have not. This post was not meant to be insensitive, and I do apologize if it did come off that way. Needless to say it was great to see all the New Yorkers come together and getting the city back on its feet! Counting my blessings and sending out blessings to those in need.

I don’t think she came off as offensive in the least bit. People truly need to quit reading into things and finding reasons to make other people feel bad.

Chriselle, I love this post and your blog as well. Could anyone please tell me why this post seemed insensitive to them? I don’t see nothing wrong or inappropriate with them.
I love the colors of the outfit.

I really like Chriselle’s posts because it is mostly focused on teaching people how to be fashionable. I learn a lot from her.

But i am so sorry Chriselle, i agree with Jen. I know she is aware about the hurricane because i saw that she made a comment in one of her facebook post about Sandy.

    Hi Mary,

    I do apologize if this post sounded insensitive. I just added a little note on the bottom for you girls. We are definitely thankful for all the things we have, and sending prayers out to those in need. Thanks for your comment & letting us know how you feel!

    xoxo

I read all your posts and you are one of my favorite bloggers, but you came off as very insensitive in this particular post. You may not notice that the city is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy from where you are in Manhattan, but Staten Island and parts of Queens and Brooklyn are still picking up the pieces and people are STILL suffering. I’m sorry that you had to walk everywhere, but it’s been a week and a half since Sandy left and many people still don’t have power and are freezing in their homes. Many are also homeless because their homes were destroyed by flooding and subsequent fires. Please be a little more sensitive and act like you know what’s going on.

    Hi Jen,

    My apologies if this post sounded insensitive. I just added a little note on the bottom of this blog for you. We are super thankful that we were able to make it out to NY even with the hurricane. We are also very thankful that we were able to support & help the city get back on its feet. We are definitely thankful for all the things we have, and sending prayers out to those in need. Thanks for your comment & letting us know how you feel!

Man! That hair color looks awesome on you!

JC ( November 9, 2012 at 7:06 AM )

    HI JC! Thank you! I’m so glad you like the hair color!! xoxo Chriselle

    Chriselle ( November 9, 2012 at 1:49 PM )

Depends where you are. In urban cities, I prefer to walk too – considering that everything is at walking distance. In some places though it’s just not possible. But whenever it is, I much prefer walking!

Yaya ( November 9, 2012 at 6:29 AM )

    Hi Yaya! I agree with you. In LA its impossible to get around unless you have a car, but walking is more environment friendly & also HEALTHY!! Thanks for coming by ! xoxo Chriselle

    Chriselle ( November 9, 2012 at 1:49 PM )

I prefer going by bike! I’m Dutch, so that comes naturally here. It’s much faster than walking and It’s a good workout. Aaand better for the environment than a car! Aaaaand it doesn’t cost anything (well.. you have to buy a bike, but after that, you’re all set!)

Sophie ( November 9, 2012 at 5:48 AM )

    Hi Sophie! I love biking..wish I could bike around in LA!! I agree its much more environment friendly :) Hope you have a lovely weekend! xoxo chriselle

    Chriselle ( November 9, 2012 at 1:48 PM )

Boglarka ( November 9, 2012 at 5:41 AM )
