Huggies & ShopRite Help New Jersey Combat Diaper Need

baby-in-diapers-huff-postFrom July to October, ShopRite and Huggies donated 250,000 diapers to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a member of the National Diaper Bank Network.  This helps the 1 in 3 families struggling with diaper need in New Jersey.

How you can help:

  • Donate leftover diapers – have leftover diapers your child outgrew? Your local diaper bank can use them! Opened packages are fine, too.
  • Volunteer at a local diaper bank – donate your time, skills, experience, education or man power to support (email info@diaperbanknetwork.org to find a place to volunteer near you)
  • Host a diaper drive – every package of diapers you collect and every dollar you raise will impact needy infants and toddlers

The initiative is part of a larger donation of 500,000 diapers and $10,000 to the National Diaper Bank Network to help tackle diaper need—the struggle to provide enough clean diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy.*


Avora Port Imperial Ferry TerminalDMG Investments, the developer of One Park in Cliffside Park, N.J., has entered into an agreement with NY Waterway to expand the ferry operator’s complimentary shuttle bus service between its main terminal at Port Imperial in Weehawken and the new luxury condominium building located at 320 Adolphus Avenue.

The new bus route launched in conjunction with the arrival of the first residents at the 14-story, 204-unit luxury building.  The free public shuttles will connect to NY Waterway’s Port Imperial terminal in Weehawken where ferries carry commuters across the Hudson River to the West 39th Street Terminal in Midtown Manhattan in eight minutes, and the Wall Street and Brookfield Place terminals in downtown Manhattan in under 20 minutes.

Multiple busses will operate on the route during morning and evening rush hours.  One Park is situated just three miles from the Weehawken ferry terminal.

The noteworthy announcement reflects both One Park’s and Cliffside Park’s ascension into a preferred New Jersey’s Gold Coast residential destination.   With a unique location atop the Palisades offering uninterrupted views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, One Park blends modern residences and a full complement of world-class amenities and services with a favorable commute to Manhattan and close proximity to the dynamic waterfront lifestyle scene below.

The enhanced commuter convenience also follows the start of the Route 495 viaduct construction project which promises to snarl traffic into and out of the Lincoln Tunnel for the next 2 ½ years – a major inconvenience that won’t affect One Park residents who opt for the carefree ferry ride to Manhattan.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join with NY Waterway and introduce the expanded bus route which will pay great dividends to not only residents of One Park, but the entire Cliffside Park community,” said Jacky He, Executive Vice President of DMG Investments.

“This public service will unlock yet another commuter option by providing a worry-free trip to the New York Waterway ferry terminal, the most reliable Hudson River crossing and quickest access point to Manhattan.” Continue reading

When a Change of Season Calls for a Beautiful Room Refresh

jz20mwemtl2ksbwrk7ak_full_3c2a2369-819x1024Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. Every August, just like clockwork, I find myself anxiously anticipating the change in season. It prompts me to refresh my wardrobe with yummy sweaters and find new and innovative ways to redecorate my home in preparation for the chilly yet cozier months of the year.

When Sherwin-Williams shared their 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay SW 7701, Kate and I both agreed we loved the look and feel of this color tone and we jumped at the thought of doing a beautiful redesign story around it. I was drawn to the warm terracotta color because of its ancient, elemental roots and mostly by the way it made me feel. Cavern Clay is a blend of midcentury modern style and the rich and earthy American Southwest, which together create a kind of desert modern aesthetic vibe. Because I love and live in all things boho, Kate asked me to take on this makeover story, and if you know me just a little bit, you know I absolutely LOVE anything interiors related, especially if it’s bohemian. So, I couldn’t wait to get started.

Because I’m currently living in a rental unfortunately my bedroom was off limits for painting. So I quickly reached out to good friends Jenny Jorgensen and Kate Worum, the local mavens of She She, a hand-painted print and pattern design studio, to see if they were interested in receiving a little room refresh and luckily Kate Worum was all in! Kate, a local Minneapolis illustrator who recently turned 30, was looking for a fresh start and a little change of scenery in her life. We were happy to provide that to her with a fresh wall of paint in her bedroom, and we thought, why not help a girl out with a full-on room refresh! After kicking off the project I went over to her place right away and we began brainstorming how we could transform her sunny little apartment bedroom into a relaxing bohemian bungalow.
