bar cART

Living in a NYC apartment makes holiday decorating not always a walk in the park (more like a walk in Central Park after 10pm). If I could have it my way like Frank Sinatra, I would be the comparison to a 2nd grade teacher updating the bulletin board with every holiday they could think of. Man, I really did not fully appreciate all those clever and colorful ways they made a board not be so BORED. The Bar Cart is my version of a teacher’s bulletin board or stringing 100,000 lights around a home. Every holiday I can think up leaves me crafting the cart and getting our spirits into holiday the holiday spirit. I once had a mover try to eat a valentine’s Day themed coaster thinking it was candy. Try coming up with a polite way to say “Sorry sir, that porcelain round object is not edible.” It can be a simple decorating habit buying a festive pack of napkins or candy for the holiday of your choice. I just need to know where all these #Nationalonlychildday, #Nationalcoffeeday, and  #Nationalpetdays are coming from because when you turn into a bar cart bedazzler like myself you want to be prepared with all required items. P.S. My apologies if you do not get the bedazzler reference #STAYYOUNGWILDANDFREE, but if you do I would love some tips on where to purchase one.  Pictured below is just some of the St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween, Easter, and Valentine’s Day decor. Believe me there will be so much more

Hi I’m Rachel... Born and raised in New Jersey where I received my Master’s Degree in Communications, had my first job experiences, and realized my purpose in life was to help make a difference. In 2013, I moved to New York City where I had dreams of being in the fashion industry. I took a fashion PR workshop and reached out to a speaker I was inspired by for an internship. Elle Communications helped me discover my love for social good brands and fashion with purpose. For a year I was one of Diane von Furstenberg’s assistants which was an experience I will be forever grateful for. Working for a fashion legend I never learned so much in such a short period of time. It helped me grow both professionally and personally immensely. I lost my aunt to lung cancer six years ago and became involved with Free to Breathe a nonprofit organization with a mission to double lung cancer survival by 2022.  They wrote me the most beautiful letter about my involvement since 2011. I am now currently fundraising for this year’s walk and team captain to Deb’s Dreamers.  I have raised over $5000.00 for lung cancer research from 2011-2016. Another organization I feel strongly about is The Pajama Program. A non-profit that offers at-risk children books and pajamas so they can enjoy bedtime. I have been a volunteer reader giving me the opportunity to both read and see the process of when the children receive pajamas and get to take a book home of their choice. The program is amazing and I look forward to participating in the upcoming Pajama Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Continuously trying to find a way I can put my love for social good, fashion, and communications together to make the most impact.
