leather, urban outfitters

leather, urban outfitters

Being in New Zealand, we do often take for granted how far away we are from the heat of many wars and political uprisings. It's a false sense of security we're hopefully awakening from.

It's been exactly one week since the Christchurch earthquake. Everyday since, we've been moved by peoples' stories and everyone's pro-active responses to help out, be it money, blood, water or food. We're awakened by the vulnerability of our existence, yet what suddenly matters more is the wellbeing of others and how else we can help. Bakers are baking up storms for volunteers and families; Cantabarian uni students are banding together and forming the Volunteer Student Army, offering their help in anyway possible; baked sales galore are popping up throughout the country; a lot of boutique stores are donating $1000 vouchers, Celine bags etc for auction to raise funds; even in London, NZ musicians, The Veils and others are performing in Bush Hall (NZ Earthquake Relief Gig). If you're in London, you know what to do.

I agree, there has been an amazing response and just watching people help moves you. The news of the Christchurch earthquake was only passed for 2 or 3 days here since the Lybia issue started to arise. I think in this time we all need to stick together and even though we all live in different countries there should be no boundaries for helping :)

p.s. dont stop posting tunes cous its my daily fix ;)

It's nice to hear that everyone is rallying together to help out. I studied at Canterbury for a semester, so Christchurch is very close to my heart even though I'm on the other side of the world.

For a week, NZ all over the news. I was really devastated to hear about the earthquake. And the stories I've heard was so moving. And its nice to hear that a lot of people are the doing their best to help out. God is good. :)

By the way, love the leather top with the soft scalloped shorts. And the choker made the whole unusual pairing, a lot more interesting! :)

Hope you ladies are doing fine over there!
