***While we were compensated for showcasing the stores, we chose all the products we discussed. Thank you to The Mills at Jersey Gardens for working with us!***
Twelve-ish miles from Jersey City is a very big mall. We have our mall at Newport, but sometimes it is nice to get away from Jersey City, even if it is right over town lines. That is why when The Mills at Jersey Gardens asked me to do an Instagram Takeover, I said absolutely. They have worked with our close friend and blogger extraordinaire Daily Fashionista so we knew we had to join in on the fun. What makes Jersey Gardens great is that it is both a outlet mall with stores like Ann Taylor Factory Stores, Century 21, and Coach Outlet, but it also has great shops for any price point like Zara, H&M, Forever 21, Group USA, and Converse.
Everything in the stores is pink and pastel right now and if you know me (Jenna) personally, you know I am not a pink person. However, I am mauve person and everything was the right color pink for me to love it. What all the shades of pink reminded me of was the power of women to support each other and to be courageous when facing cancer. While Breast Cancer Awareness is in October, I wanted this to be a reminder to everyone that cancer never sleeps and supporting someone doesn’t have to mean giving money. It could mean a phone call, dropping off food, driving them to the doctors, or a card in mail.
From April 10 – May 31, SIMON Malls has partnered with Susan G. Komen to support the organization’s Bold Goal of reducing the mortality rate of breast cancer by 50% within the next 10 years. Through the More Than Pink movement, SIMON centers, including The Mills at Jersey Gardens, will raise awareness and funds by selling $10 Discount Cards, which provide 25% off one item at participating retailers, with all proceeds benefitting Susan G. Komen, as well as donating $1 from every purchase of a Susan G. Komen branded Visa gift card to support the cause. Staff at the Guest Services booth will also get into the spirit by wearing pink accessories throughout the campaign.
In honor of SIMON’S More Than Pink campaign, Growing in Jersey City is thrilled to be giving away Adidas Diablo small duffle bag and a yoga mat, courtesy of The Mills at Jersey Gardens, to one of our lucky readers. To enter: please post in the comments how you are inspired everyday!
