An Organically Green Philanthropist: GeboMana

One day I was pondering a blog post idea on the graphic design art on t-shirts when on that exact same day I clicked on the website GeboMana and saw their graphic design art on their t-shirts. I was a bit miffed and my conscious thought was, “Oh my God, competition!” 

Then, I felt a twinge of guilt when I read through their website. The hand-printed and graphic designed art t-shirts on the GeboMana website provide the monetary structure for the education of children in developing nations. Not only is GeboMana an organically green company, but they are philanthropists, as well. Well, of course, the twinge of guilt deepened into a chasm of guilt, and I hung my little sixthirtythree head in shame.  There is never competition in philanthropy.

So, I have re-awakened and remembered that I do live in the richest country in the world. And while my country’s recession has hit each and every one of us in varying degrees, the hardest hit in our recession are the children. 

The global economy has taken a beating as well, and the hardest hit are the children. With each political conquest of warring factions, the hardest hit are the children. With each devastating earthquake, flood, tornado, tsunami, fire, and any other environmental upheaval thrust upon developing nations, the hardest hit are always the children.

Children of every nation always depend on us, the adults, to love and to protect, to educate and to guide them through this world. Therefore, with Christmas around the corner, and the last few months of birthdays, celebrations, congratulations, and any event in our lives left of this year 2010, reach out and help the philanthropist, GeboMana; give a graphically designed t-shirt and help educate the children of developing nations.  

Each Indian organically grown cotton t-shirt you give will provide the education for a child for one month. When you give five t-shirts which are hand-crafted in Bali you will provide a lifetime of education for a child.  

It will be the best action-gift you ever give.

Outfit of the Day #6: Show-off-Your-Curves

The final Outfit of the Day in the Outfit of the Day series begins with a lovely fitted blouse with an embroidered rose design. The blouse is fully lined with a back zipper and a cute bow tied at the neck. Since the blouse is fitted, it will fit nicely over the show-off-your-curves, slim-fitting daffodil-yellow skirt with ruffles along the hem that will swing when you walk. The outfit will definitely catch the eye of those who pass you on the street, in the office, at the bar, or, wherever you are so inclined to walk amongst people. While you are walking amongst people, you will also be wearing yellow Italian alligator print pumps with chunky heels that are a fashion trend of the fall season. Be sure to take your gorgeous and sleek black clutch with the gold chain with you. The clutch matches both your blouse and skirt and the gold chain sparkles in the bright and cheery daffodil-yellow about your hips and feet. Remember to pack your compact mirror designed with Mother-of-Pearl and a peacock, because using the computer monitor as a mirror just doesn’t work. Yes, I have tried this. Back on track, while your show-off-your-curves skirt is swinging to your own inner child music, your beautiful onyx drop earrings will be swinging right along with your cheerful attitude because when you wear this outfit, your divineness will sparkle to the world.

Outfit of the Day 5: Casual Saturday

It’s casual Saturday! Yay!

Sing songy! Yellow, yellow, still on my mind. Yellow, yellow is always…a great find. Yellow, yellow, la, da, dee, daaaaa.

Yes, it’s another yellow outfit. Although, today’s outfit is yellow and turquoise from head to toe and even the iPod case. 

It’s so funny to me that for the past few weeks I had a horizontal tie-dye shirt in my favorites. Well, yesterday, a random idea popped into my head, that wouldn’t it be funny, if I accidently posted a shirt for a baby with an adult skirt. As I was looking at the photos in my favorites yesterday evening, I read the title of the tie-dye shirt.  The title read that it was a fit for a 4T. I was so disappointed, and somewhat dumbfounded, but, not for long. Etsy has everything! It did not take me long to find another pretty, yellow and turquoise tie-dye top, this time fit for an adult. Shaking my fists by my ears. Yay!

Outfit of the Day 3: Turquoise

Turquoise, the color of the blue-green waters of a tropical island, except, I wouldn’t want to wear this cute outfit walking along the coastline. It’s too pretty to be drenched in salt water. However, it’s just right for wearing to a dinner date with your mate at  a nice restaurant.

Tea Time

One day I walked into a store and my eyes feasted on a sleek silver and red kettle. I oohed and ahhed until I turned over the tag and saw the $48.00 price. My eyes popped out of my head, and I put the kettle back on the shelf. I thought, who would pay that much to boil water? I know, someone did, it just wasn’t me.

Fast forward two years, and today, I am oohing and ahhhing over an adorable sunshine yellow teapot and the accessories. For a total of $37.49 without the shipping included you can receive a teapot, 50 bags of vanilla tea, a teabag rest, and a talking mug that has “Wake Up” printed on one side. Since yellow is an optimism creating color, your spirits and your kitchen will be warm and happy all winter long.

Outfit of the Day 2: The Suit

Like yellow, orange is also a cheery color. Orange exudes energy and warmth. Yet, unlike optimism creating yellow which invigorates both the “mental processes” and “nervous systems,” orange inspires activity and promotes socialization. When you are hosting a conference or training people, you need all the leverage you can use.

Outfit of the Day 1: Bright and Cheery

Ever since I posted “Outfit of the Week 7: Glamour Snapshot,” bright and cheery yellow has imprinted itself upon my brain every waking minute of the day. I have also noticed that my obsession with Etsy has increased. If I’m not thinking about bright and cheery yellow, then I’m thinking about matching outfits.

So, for this week only, I am indulging my obsession of bright and cheery yellow and matching outfits by posting daily outfits for six days. I’ll be skipping Wednesday, since that is usually a non-clothing post day. By next Monday, my obsession will be over and I’ll be back to my twice a week posting.

Outfit of the Week 8: Summer Party

If I were an artist hosting an art showing at an art gallery, or, a hostess for a-congratulations, you-got-a-job-party for a friend, I would wear this outfit.

The violet top has elegant draping folds in the front and ties in the middle of the back with violet ribbons.  Embellishments at the shoulder include a polymer clay flower and violet glass beads. A sweet top for an end-of-the-summer party.

Funky Chunkies

While sitting on the couch thumbing through a Talbots catalog I came across “Sabria Chunky Heel Pumps” for $149.00.  Well, of course, I had to run to the computer and search through Etsy for some chunky shoes. For well under $149.00 you can wear some nice funky chunky shoes through the rest of the summer and all through winter.
