Hello Readers!

I am back with one of my favorite designers…Artizana. I am always amazed at all the wonderful textures and colors Dainie makes available to her customers in her creative designs. I didn’t think she could blow me away any further, but in her Fashion for Change release “Karma” she included stilettos for Slink High feet and they too are color change!  So all in one HUD you can change the skirt, blouse, jacket, and shoes. Talk about mix and match!  So when it came time to finish off this wonderful look with some makeup I thought of Madrid Solo of course!

♛ Miss V Puerto Rico 2015 ♛


Womankind Worldwide is a UK based, international Women’s Rights charity working to help women transform their lives and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

It celebrated it’s 25th Anniversary last year (2014).

The Charity’s motto is ‘Equal, Respected, Proud’ and its vision is of a world where being a woman does not limit choices, opportunities or rights, where ever she lives.

The Charity’s aim is to support local Women’s Rights organizations and smaller local women’s groups.  These groups, often at great personal risk to themselves, are challenging discrimination, human rights abuses and violence towards women within the countries and communities they are based in.

Womankind delivers the essential support – funding, expertise, contacts and publicity that these local grass roots women’s organizations need to amplify their voice, increase their impact and bring about greater change in their communities.

Womankind’s approach is not to impose a ‘top down’ solution but to help and empower the women’s groups it works with to achieve their own solutions and change. Womankind Worldwide also works in wider arenas, to lobby for change , working to influence the powers and practices of governments and non-governmental organizations.

While not being a very large charity, over the 25 years of its existence it has supported directly and indirectly over 18 million women and their families. In 2013, for instance, it worked in 15 countries, directly supported almost 141,000 women, and helped improve the rights of over 6 million women. In 2013 as an example, it worked in Afghanistan, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nepal, Peru, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

What follows is just a tiny example of the schemes, large and small, that it has helped.

Afghanistan – In Jalalabad WW helped a a legal aid center run by a local Women’s Organization to provide free legal support to 175 women, psychosocial support to 70 women/girls and basic health treatment to 46 women

Bolivia – WW helped 550 indigenous and peasant women leaders in 5 out of the country’s 9 regions to acquire the knowledge to challenge discrimination and they are now actively participating in local politics.

Liberia – WW helped develop a manual to help the police improve how they manage cases involving violence against women and girls, especially rape

Tanzania – WW worked with the Women’s Legal Aid Center in the Nyarugusu camp to support refugee paralegal units to take action on violence against women, and other human rights abuses, and they trained the wider community to recognize, promote and protect the rights of refugee women, children and men.

Nepal – WW helped Dalit tribal women’s political participation and their understanding of local political processes

Ethiopia – over five years, alongside another charity, WW worked with local communities to raise awareness of women’s rights, violence against women and harmful traditional practices. Just one result of this work was that 250,000 girls escaped genital mutilation.

That is only a tiny sample, the list could go on for hours….

This is a charity where even small donations can make a significant difference, because the money is targeted to make maximum and lasting impact. Some examples are shown below.

$20 US could train a police person in Peru in issues of sexual exploitation, violence and women’s rights to ensure that they better support trafficked women and women in prostitution.

$60US could train a community paralegal in Ghana, to provide legal support to survivors of violence, helping them to obtain child custody, a divorce or to keep their home.

$300US could train 25 Aymara women in Bolivia to educate other women in their communities on women’s rights, violence and leadership.

Looking at the figures, you can see that there is a real chance that money raised in Second Life could make a real difference somewhere.

Warning: Rambling Ahead!

Hello Readers!

Wicca Merlin is one of my favorite models and designers and I am just so thrilled I have gotten to know her better and blog for her. She always gives Geths and I reasons to pose together so we can show off her latest matched set of fashion!

Wicca was a part of the recent BOSL Fashion Week and had some designs featured.  Side note: I got to participate in BOSL’s Fashion Week as a Miss for the opening show where I styled my favorite movie, Harry Potter, for the Miss Virtual World 2015 2nd runway challenge. I was a fashion patronus!  Yes a fashion patronus.  I hope those of you who visit my blog from time to time can see why Silly is quite an appropriate name for me.  Anyways, here is my fashion patronus in case you missed it!

MVW RC 2

I didn’t make the Top 10 with this look, so perhaps it was too much patronus and not enough fashion, but I had fun with it none the less and that is what Miss Virtual World is all about for me. Doing my best and having fun! The details of the look can be found by clicking it and visiting the image on Flickr.

So back to BOSL’s Fashion Week! I was thrilled to be selected as a BLVD Fashion House model at their recent casting and as a result I was able to walk in one of their shows as a new BLVD model.  It was the finale show and I was deeply honored by the amazing models I shared the runway with.  One of whom was the one and only Caoimhe Lionheart.  She had written in her blog about how runway wasn’t really her ‘thing’ and I completely respect that.  To each their own, I always say!  Anyone who knows Cao knows she is a blast to interact with and this finale show was no different. She was a sweetheart and took photos of several of us as we prepared before the show and I was one of the lucky ones! I now have this LOVELY Cao photo of me in the lovely Jasmine dress by YoKana.  Thank you Cao! ❤

Hello Readers!

What a weekend!  So many awesome SL activities! I LOVE working with SCALA and it was a pleasure to coordinate the VIP Rapture shows. They way people come together to make an excellent production happen is truly awe inspiring. Then there was today…my first official Miss Virtual World meeting! I am so excited about this for so many reasons, but the big news was that we all finally learned what countries we would be representing. I was thrilled to learn I had been given my 1st choice…Puerto Rico!  I am 100% Puerto Rican and my mother raised me to be proud of that fact. I was often asked as a child what I was “mixed with” and whenever I would share this with my mom she would always say “Tu es cien por ciento boricua! (You are 100% Puerto Rican!) Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!” And yes there was a fair amount of “Spanglish” in my house as my parents were the first and second generations of their families born on “the mainland,” (USA) so Spanish usage in my house was rather mixed, though both of my parents are fluent in English and Spanish.  To be able to represent Puerto Rico in MVW is a huge thrill for me.

Shortly after returning home from the MVW meeting, my SL sis Liat points out that the SL Blogger Support group has early access to the upcoming Jewelry Fair!  I was able to pull my head out of the clouds long enough to take the TP from my sis and have a look at what designers already had their items set up. There are some amazing designers there for sure and I will have more sneak peeks for you in the coming days.  I fell in love with the jewelry I have photographed for you today. It is so magical!  It went right along with my MVW mood and I had to share it with you.
