No Friends of Mine: LEGO Goes Pink

Pink LEGO

Let’s start by making something very clear: I absolutely adore LEGO. Its concept, design, products and company philosophy are fantastic. My husband is a LEGO collector who owns every variation of Star Wars minifigure the company ever released and is known on Twitter as Lego Master. Last Saturday was spent in a rapturous build and endless admiration of the recently released Jabba’s Palace set, and this year we have decided that all our Christmas decorations will be made out of LEGO, including their wonderful Winter Village sets, which are still boxed and waiting for December the 1st when we buy the tree.

Nor, I hasten to add, do I have anything against the colour pink per se. Apart from the fact that it would be weird for me to write for the Little Pink Blog and be a voracious anti-pink feminist, I believe that colours in themselves are not inherently evil, and that women should wear pink and buy pink products if they feel like it.

That said, this week I joined 61,000 [Read more…]

You’re Invited: Sasha’s 28th Birthday and Recurso World Aids Day Fundraiser

Donate Today!

Hello, hello!

It’s that time of year again and this year Recurso will be doing another great fundraiser!

Sasha, Recurso’s resident PR & Emerging Media master, is donating her birthday to Recurso!

December 1st is World AIDS Day, so it makes it the perfect opp for a Recurso+World AIDS Day! Currently, we’re raising funds to help buy antiviral treatments for the Hospital del Niño in Lima, Peru, and all proceeds will go towards this goal.

Recurso, a Spanish word for “resource or refuge”, is a 501(c)(3) international non-profit organization that began in May 1999. Recurso is dedicated to improving the human condition by empowering students across the nation to provide direct sustainable development and aid. Recurso’s three areas of concentration are: health, water, and education. This includes promoting primary education, quality health care, dental hygiene education, the building of schools and providing school supplies to our global community partners.

We really hope you can make it!
♥ Eva, Sasha and the Recurso Team

“Technology is not only for the individual, it’s for humanity.”

I adore Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah.

Like my idol the late Princess Diana of Wales, Queen Rania sees beyond wealth, extravagance and the fact that she’s royalty.

She seeks to help those in need, strives for positive changes and believes that education, having heart and using the worlds assets can lead to a better, brighter and healthier tomorrow for the world’s next generation.

This week, here in New York, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah joined President Bill Clinton, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and World Bank President Jim Young Kim at the eight annual Clinton Global Initiative.

The opening panel, held on Sunday September 23, entitled “Designing for Impact,” focused on the how citizens of the world could cultivate an environment where their lives and the lives of those around them can serve as vehicles for change. [Read more…]

Garden Oasis: Fotini SS13

Born in Athens, Greece to an Egyptian father and a Greek mother, New York-based designer Fotini built a name for herself that epitomizes on the ultra chic and the uber feminine.

Her designs of the past have been as flirty and classic as they have been contemporary and luxurious.

After traveling around Europe (specifically Italy) for over three-years, Fotini’s SS13 collection, at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, was an ode to such with 18th-century paintings and the French countryside springing to life through yards of silk and pale romantic tones. [Read more…]
