Ice Bucket Challenge

One of the latest trends to take social media by storm is the ‘ice bucket challenge,’ an internet sensation that has helped raise mass awareness for ALS. In fact, everywhere we look- celebrities and locals alike are challenging each other to donate to the cause and/or brave the foreboding bucket of ice water. Although in these summer months, ice water may not be such a bad thing after all. Nevertheless, do your part- donate to ALS!

I’ve decided to do a SL version of the ice bucket challenge to commemorate Meme Monday, which I haven’t had a chance to do in a while and so, by accepting and (yes, I’ve donated!) taking the challenge, I in turn challenge all of you to take the plunge into icy goodness! ♥

U:Refined @ Fashion Stars- Noir

Happy Independence Day!

Fashion Stars- Noir is new this week with a fabulous collection of designers at the stylish Zenshi sim. Rita Hazelnut of U:Refined has released this super adorable and highly classy bra/top and leggings combination. It comes in several color and pattern choices, but I went with the bold red and black, pairing it with this new Gatsby hat from Miamai at L’accessories. I haven’t seen the movie yet but I loved the book, so I am sure I will love the screenplay!

In case you haven’t heard, HANDverk has stopped producing home furnishings and is going back to their roots with their fabulous, all-original handcrafted apparel and accessories. As a result, Daphne is kicking off a huge 50% off Summer sale from July 1st until the 8th. I stopped by and picked up a few items, including this cute studded clutch, that really ties in nicely with the rest of my outfit.
