Together For Sway – W. Winx & Flair – Carova Retreat

Together For Sway

Designers across the grid have banded together to create items for the Together For Sway event.  The event runs from today, December 15th through December 31st, and benefits a much appreciated designer, Sway Dench, in Second Life.  Sway Dench is the avatar behind Sway’s, a cute store with an eclectic mix of homewares, bric a brac, and fashion – check out her cute rubber boots.  Sway in real life has a benign brain tumor, and is under going surgery in about a month for it.  Together for Sway was created to help her business stay afloat during her surgury and recovery, affording her the opportunity to relax and recooperate without the stress of worrying about her business for the next six months.

Together For Sway features items from over 80 stores, with 100% of the purchase price being donated to Sway Dench.  There will be a number of music events accompanying the event, check the blog for details, updates, and additions. Many items have been already blogged, and vendor ads adding to the Together For Sway flickr group, take a sneak peak at them before heading over.  If you are looking for more ways to help Sway, there are a variety of ways you can listed here.

W. Winx & Flair have collaborated to create the Carova Retreat for Together For Sway.  It’s a tranquil spot for your garden or outdoor space where you can hang out with your friends.   The design features mesh, 23 land impact, 5 custom sits, and click on/off candles.  With the low land impact it makes it ideal for first land.

The Back To Black Event 2012 – Strength

The Back To Black event starts February 11th through February 29th and is brought to you by Chic Management.  This event is to promote mental health awareness and is themed around inspirational themes; like Love, Strength, Family, Friendship, etc.  I chose two items from Strength for this post, perception is that you either have it or don’t.  The truth is you cultivate it, and exercise it like a muscle, it’s something you’ve had all along.

Back to Black - Yoga - Izzie's

Izzie’s has made these cute leisure sets that come in three colors, with choice of coordinating drawstring cording. I like how comfortable they look, specially while doing some yoga.   Elefantu‘s Yoga Studio is a fun item featured.  It’s a full yoga studio, that comes with a surround sphere so you get the full effect of being out and about at the studio. It’s decorated with yoga mats for you and your yoga buddies, relaxing candles, water cooler, and other decor. Each yoga mat comes with menu driven yoga animations.
