Flower Power

These jeans and bandana are from a cute store called Boho Hobo, where all proceeds go to The Central Asian Institute.

From their notecard:

THE CENTRAL ASIAN INSTITUTE  is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the mission to promote and support community-based education, especially for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan.    We believe that by educating children, especially girls, we promote peace in the region. There is compelling evidence that extending and improving education for girls has a huge impact on economic growth, on raising healthy and stable families. and lessening the powers of  extremist groups. (which usually recruit the poor and illiterate)

Educate a boy, and he leaves his community in search of a brighter future elsewhere, educate a girl and she brings her skills and knowledge to the aid of her village.  To educate a girl  is of the greatest impact to her community and the nation.

How very cool!

Sn@tch and Madison’s Creations

January 20, 2010 5 comments

Sn@tch partcipates in 69L Humpday every week, but this week is doing it a little different.  Today through Friday, 14 outfits are marked down to 69L in the store.  There is one outfit in every section but you have to find them.  It didn’t actually take me too long to find them and if you hit the subscribo you can get the detailed notecard.

~I am not going to give exact locations, because I think that makes Ivey mad.  😛  But to narrow it down slightly…this outfit is upstairs.  It comes with the dress, which is really cute,  and the dual length jeans. 
~I added a hair from Waka & Yuki that I saw on the feeds.  I guess this is a new dollarbie, but there are a bunch of dollarbies to be had here.  The hat and hair are both color change, although you have to change the hat color in sections. 
~The sneakers are Renee’s offering for the Shoe and Accessory Hunt, which I like a lot.  Very cute and versatile. 

Dress and pants:  Sn@tch Carolina (Hep Chick & Street Meat Jeans)  69L 
Sneakers:  Duh! Shoe and Accessory Hunt Sneaker Boot White  Free 
Socks:  Sn@tch Raggedy Socks Grey 
Hair:  W&Y Hair 41 TypeA  1L 
Skin:  Tyranny Designs Dinah in Fall Toast Bare2

~I also got this cute jacket at Sn@tch.  While you are there be sure to pick up the free necklace which is on the table in the gift box at the front of the store.  I changed both the hair and the hat color on the W&Y dollabie for a totally different look. 
~The skin is from Rockberry and the proceeds are going to the Red Cross.  It is 250L per shade. 
~The leggings, which come in a bunch of colors,  are a group gift from Jill that came out a while ago but are still available. I noticed when I went by to check that there are two other group gifts out now that looked cute. I didn’t get a chance to try them on yet. 

Jacket:  Sn@tch High Street Coat Purple  69L 
Skin:  Rockberry Jules Red Cross Natural 250L

~This gown is the most recent group gift from Madison’s Creations, and is in the inworld group notices.  It can be worn in a bunch of different ways but I thought this was the prettiest…simple and sweet.  For my viewer, I did have to tint the prim parts to white to get them to match the clothing layers. 
~The photo cube is from La Petite Morte and is a special for 69L Humpday, so it will only be out for a few more hours.  The walls are texture change to a bunch of different wallpapers.  Very cute!

Gown:  Madison’s Creations Group Gift Briana Coral  Free

Mischief, MichaMi and Prelude

MichaMi has put out a gift of a cute pair of leggings which I believe will only be out for the weekend.  Make sure you pick them up before the end of the day!  And check out her new stuff, it is all great!

~I went with a bit of a retro look with the leggings by adding this cute new release from Mischief, The Bees Knees.  I love the geometric print on the skirt. The skirt is sculpty and usually I don’t like sculpty skirts but my butt didn’t stick out of this one at all!  This dress comes in a 5 colors for only 195L per color or 500L for the fatpack!
~The boots are from the Mentine Subscribo Gift.  They are still available, check the history, #2.

~Another new release at Mischief is this adorable little cocktail dress, with lacy fringe at the bust and hemline.  Everyone needs a little black dress and this one has a little something extra!  And a total bargain at only 215L!
~If you are looking for a fancy and dramatic set of jewelry for when you dress up, you can’t go wrong with the Abstract Extravagance set from Dark Mouse.  I just adore this set and it really adds sparkle when you are wearing black.

Hunts!

January 16, 2010 21 comments

I spent the last day or so doing the Shoe and Accessory Hunt and the Heat Wave Hunt.   There are a lot of nice things in both these hunts and I have picked a few to feature here.  I can’t blog everything in the hunts, that isn’t what I do.  erm.  More on that later.  For now, here is some of what I found.

~I love this top from WWI for the Heat Wave Hunt.  It comes with an optional lace bra and really nice scuplted sleeves. 
~The glasses from Kumaki are really cool.  They come with several different scenes printed on the lens and can be opaque or transparent.  These will be great for photos in different outdoor locations. 
~The Indyra Originals bag is fantastically textured and comes in two sizes.

~And now I need to take some time to relax after all that work!  😛 
This bathtub is the Heat Wave prize from Cheeky Pea and comes with both single and couple poses!  Yes, I am wearing pasties…wearing clothes seemed wrong, but we couldn’t have full on nip! 

Bath:  Cheeky Pea Heat Wave Hunt Slipper Bath Free 
Hair:  Magika Susan Black A

Poses:  LAP and Glitterati

I am sure I will use many more of the prizes from these hunts in future posts.  There has been some snark lately where people say that if you don’t show every item from a hunt that you are somehow taking the “easy” way out.  I would disagree with that as putting together outfits from the hunt items, finding locations, poses, good lighting and trying to show the items well, is a long and laborious project.  I give mad props to those that take a photo of every item, but we can’t and shouldn’t all be blogging the same way…that would be no fun at all.  I would suggest that we all blog what we like, how we like and not worry so much about how other people are blogging.  Diversity is what makes SL interesting, isn’t it?

50L Friday Special Edition for Haiti

During 50L Friday this week many of the designers have set out items that the proceeds from which will go to Haiti Earthquake Relief.  Also, there is a skybox set up above Scribble and the proceeds from the items for sale there will also go to the Red Cross.  There are also donation kiosks set up in many stores.  A huge thank you to OMGWTF Barbecue, who I believe organized the whole thing, and to the designers.
