Gypsy Holiday 2012 from Daeja Fallas on Vimeo.
What fun it was spending the morning with my lovely friends Michelle Vawer and Jessa Blades making this little film for Gypsy Hawaii right here in NYC. A prefect west village morning and some good music. Who could ask for more?

As I sit here on the second "snow" day of this NYC winter I've decided to embrace it this year, to forget how cold it is and suck it up and just BUY that hideous puffer coat and get out there and enjoy the snow! There must be something magical about it if SO many people love it so much... Paolo Roversi sure makes it look magical in the above images taken for W magazine in 2010.
When the girls at Free People shared these images of their newly released hand painted skate decks I instantly fell in love. How better to get around Brooklyn than with one of these beautiful hand painted little numbers! These are so pretty and unique I had to know what they were inspired by. From vintage flower prints and Henna tattoos to Italian Vogue these girls searched far and wide and came up with some beautiful finished results! To see more visit Free People !
If you live here like I do, you LOVE this city and the people in it.. Even if you don't live here I know so many of you love this city like your own and are looking for ways to help. After the storm I was at a loss for how to get involved so I compiled a list of helpful links on how to help New York and New Jersey residents who have lost so much after Sandy.
If you live in New York:
This is an amazing site where you can sign up to help out in Parks, Art Centers, Food Banks and Shelters
Check out the Brooklyn Kitchen site
Check out the Surfrider Foundation for rides to coastal areas and Waves for Water
Stay in the know:
Help in the LES (where they are running low on food and general supplies but DO NOT need clothes other than coats)
Do you live outside the Tristate area and still want to help?
It is so so easy! The easiest way is to text the RED CROSS a $10 donation by Texting REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10
Other ways are by visiting
or of course the RED CROSS
For all Animal Lovers like myself, please visit the Mayors Alliance for NYC's Animals
I'll be collecting food and pet supplies along with the aid of Brooklyn Bark and FIDO for families affected by the storm so they do not need to give up their sweet friends in times of need. You can drop off supplies at the events below or contact me and Ill pick up supplies in the Downtown Brooklyn/Fort Greene/DUMBO areas.
FIDO In Prospect Park & BrooklynBark Dog Walkers in conjunction with the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) will be collecting pet food for Sandy evacuees.
Thanks to all who are helping and are continuing to help residents of NY and NJ!
