My First Pair of TOMS + the Haiyan Initiative

I’m the type of girl who will always need her comfy everyday type of slip-on shoes. Two years ago, they were in the form of espadrilles, another year it was my over worn and battered white plimsolls. The past year until present, I’ve been expanding my choices of footwear and no longer only perpetually wear one type of shoes for everyday/weekend activities. Welcome to the everyday shoe family, TOMS! I’m so glad to have you and your colorful self here with me.


The Haiyan Initiative:

It’s been a little more than a year since Typhoon Haiyan hit our beloved country, destroying thousands upon thousands of people’s homes and lives… It’s been more than a year and yet there is still a lot of work to be done in rehabilitating and rebuilding the lives of its victims, many are still without proper homes and jobs.

On Typhoon Haiyan’s anniversary TOMS Philippines and AmeriCARES, an emergency response and humanitarian aid organization, teamed up to make the TOMS Haiyan Initiative Collection happen. They commissioned artists from the affected areas to create limited-edition designs for their shoes and sunglasses line.
4 One of these artists is a guy that goes by the name Boy O, a 22 year old artist hailing from Calicoan Island, Guiuan Eastern Samar — which was where Haiyan made its first landfall, ravaging the small town. Boy O’s life, just like everyone elses, was put to a halt, and he found solace in his art. The shoes above and below are designs by Boy O himself. I personally really love the design up above! Unfortunately they ran out of my size :( I’m guessing it’s the popular choice!

All proceeds from the sales of this cause will go towards the relief and rehabilitation efforts of AmeriCARES in devastated regions. I invite you to join and support this cause, and support artists like Boy O. Great job, TOMS Philippines on another project that aims to help others!

TOMS is available at Megamall, Nothing But H2O and The Give Project. Visit for more information.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    It is value noting that full eternity rings, the place the diamonds are set
    all the way around the band, can’t be sized later, so a half eternity ring is often a more good
    choice. If the engagement ring has diamonds on the shoulders a
    half eternity can often be discovered with the identical
    kind and setting of diamonds which go the identical distance across the band,
    which can match superbly with the engagement
