My week wouldn't be complete without an email from my Grandad, he truly is one of my very best friends and he always sends me emails that he knows will make me smile! Usually they are funny graphics however this week I received a link. I feel the clip shows Innovation in its true sense, necessity really does lead to the greatest of inventions.
The clip is about a man from Sito Maligaya who is known as 'Solar Demi', he lives in a poor area near a railroad and the houses are built so close to each other that there is virtually no natural light even during the day. Life is very different for families here, they don't really stay indoors as they can not see what they are doing. Solar Demi brightened up his family and friends home by punching a hole in a section of the metal roofing and sealing a bottle in the hole. He filled the bottles with filtered water and bleach before installing them into the roof. He has now brought light and happiness to his family, whilst helping the environment by using less electricity. The solar bottle is a great success and he has installed 643 bottles so far.
If this clip inspired you as much as it inspired my please donate or volunteer at www.isanglitrongliwanag.org to help Solar Demi add light to more lives.
I just stumbled upon Arthur Schatz photograph's for life magazine and thought they were so fantastic I had to share them!
I think the images look like they have been taken at a festival but they are actually high school fashions from 1969! How fabulous! I think I might dig some of my patterned tights out to wear tomorrow :)
I also have major hair envy, I wish mine was at shiny and thick, if only I hadn't been introduced to hair dye and straighteners .....
Fearne Cotton was wearing a pretty lace blouse with a burgundy neck tie on Celebrity Juice last week, and I have wanted it ever since! Now I have finally found it in Miss Selfridge but its sold out :(!!
Looks like I will have to create my own. I have found another lace blouse from Oasis in a slightly different tone of nude.
Now I just need to find some ribbon to create my own neck tie! At least I will be able to change the colour every time I wear it :) I think I will start with navy blue!
