Surviving the Storm: Documenting the Aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan on Instagram

Want to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan? Visit the International Red Cross and Red Crescent to learn how you can help.

Typhoon Haiyan, one of the largest tropical storms ever recorded, made landfall in central Philippines on 7 November, resulting in an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. An estimated 4 million people have fled their homes—a figure that outnumbers the displaced populations of Hurricane Katrina and the Indian Ocean tsunami combined.

Thousands of emergency shelters have been set up, and international relief agencies are working around the clock to provide aid, but parts of the Philippines are still lacking basic supplies, medicine or clean water and food.

Photojournalists, reporters and residents have been documenting the relief efforts on Instagram, capturing the resilience of the Filipino people and the massive job ahead for the survivors and countless volunteers.

On my recent trip to Spain, I bought these adorable Moroccan tea glasses in Granada, sold all over the city because of its Moorish history. I drink a lot of tea during the week, but when hosting a holiday party, I like to make a big pot of cider. It makes the house smell so cozy as guests walk in.

Did you know that the word granada means pomegranate in Spanish?! I learned this as I saw pomegranate trees full of fruit growing all over the Granada- so amazing. Because of this, I was inspired to add fresh pomegranates to cider. Starting with this BHG cider recipe, I simmered apple juice, pomegranate juice and spices, then garnished each cup with fresh pomegranate seeds and an apple slice decorated with cloves. I think this would be a fun after-dinner drink on Thanksgiving Day to cozy up by the fire with (plus, it can be spiked with bourbon for the adults!).

For the recipe, click on over to my full post (with more photos!) on the Better Homes & Gardens website.

Cheers…And Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!

Pearls n’ spikes n’ everything nice…that’s what an edgy girl’s made of. We’re so in love with all things Fenton, especially this statement bauble, that proves that when opposites attract, they’re unstoppable. In this case, a perfect marriage between prep and punk makes for an accessory you can dress up or down and will never want to take off! 



To create: String pearl beads onto elastic thread. For a studier necklace, double-up on the thread. Place a sew-on spike in between every few pearls. Repeat until you’ve reached your desired necklace length. Cut the ends of the string with scissors and tie a double-knot to secure.
