The Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 8

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I'm hungry, I'm tired, I'm hungry. Is it Friday yet? Can I go home? - Today is just one of those humpdays!

Which is why the thought of going to FAB.COM's Warehouse Sale tomorrow, has got me in such high spirits!~ Will definitely bring my camera with me and try to document all the goodies I find :}

In continuing great news...
I went to the Meatpacking District's Warby Parker store today and picked up my new pair of glasses!~ It's been more than a year since I've updated my prescription, and it was about time I upgraded - frame and lens.
(They're the Durand frames, in case you wanna check 'em out for yourself!)

You know one of the things I love most about Warby Parker, besides their $95 flat rate and their customer service, is their humanitarian spirit. For every pair of glasses you purchase, a pair is donated to someone in need. This reminds me of the Bed-Stuy cafe I read out in Edible Brooklyn this month - ReConnect Cafe is a non-profit org that employs male youths from the neighborhood as a gateway (hopefully) to bigger and better jobs. Edible Manhattan highlighted a similar project where incarcerated youths are given a chance to work on food trucks - the program provides them not only with the experience to cook and serve but equips them with licenses and social media marketing and other entrepreneurial skills.

It was a relief to see that gentrification wasn't ignored in the ReConnect Cafe article, but it was a huge reminder that I'll be moving out of my beautiful Brooklyn apartment in a few months because of it - just shy of a year. Gentrification sucks, for the most part, but at least LNNY's video had me laughing about it today.

"Safety is great, until you can't afford it anymore."
Mmhm, das da wey da cooki crumbells. 


Let's wrap things up with a song my dad put me on to this past weekend 
and that I've played at least 20 times since then!

Happy Wednesday!
