Houghton Happenings

Two posts in one day so far, I’m on a roll!

I ran into this cool little blog yesterday called Houghton Happenings. It’s really cute, and I totally think you should go look.

What I’m blogging about specifically, is this giveaway she has going on right now for a gift card to Love Mode, an online clothing store.

It seems like some pretty cute stuff, and the prices are all very affordable. While looking through it, it seems to me like a lot of the dresses are really short or low cut, but I could find several other things I really like.  There’s some dresses that would be great with leggings, some tank tops that would look great layered, and even cute vests to pair with them.

I like challenges like that. I’ve often received clothes that I don’t feel are modest enough, and it’s fun to go through your wardrobe and learn how to turn that one item into something for so many other outfits with layering and pairing things together! And you can still manage to make them look good. Modest, but super stylish nonetheless. It’s like a game! Even today, I’m wearing layered shirts.

What’s a great way to start dressing like that? To head on over to Houghton’s Happening’s giveaway and win a gift card, and pick out some new clothes to start with! At least, that’s an idea from the fishbowl… 😉

Blessings always!

Delinda Boutique (Giveaway)

It’s giveaway time!!! Well, time for me to send you to Sweepstake Lover for a giveaway, anyway.

How about to enter for a $35 gift certificate to Delinda Boutique’s etsy shop? Sounds like something I’d wanna win!

Since I’ll be moving back to the United States in about 2 months, I’ll be in a new house. I’d love to be able to decorate my room wherever we end up, but I don’t have a huge budget. So winning this would be great! I actually kind of like the quirky one with orange and blue shapes. What’s your favorite? Head on over to Sweepstake Lover’s giveaway post to enter.

Sweepstake Lover is a pretty sweet blog, I’ve followed it for a while. I’m on the email list, so every time she sends out an email I have so many different giveaways to go enter, it’s awesome! She also does book reviews and things like that.

Great blog, great shop, great giveaway. At least, that’s the view from the fishbowl! 😉

19 Minutes

Ahh! I’m so excited. Pinch me? I can’t be awake. I’m awake? Oh, awesome!
What am I so excited about?
I was asked to write the music for a friend’s lyrics. And after posting about it on my facebook, I got some messages from other friends. I’m doing it!
I got to know my lovely friend Kelsey last summer before I moved to El Salvador. She wrote this sweet song called 19 Minutes, but she couldn’t come up with music for it. Thanks to the wonderfulness of Facebook, we got in touch from across the world, and I began working.
Once I was finished, I realized that it would be slightly difficult to show her what I’d done, since we’re in different countries. I have a webcam, but the sound quality is awful in videos. And international phone calls are even worse, not to mention expensice. So, I began a search for some new, free, recording software. What I came acrosss was Audacity. Now I can record my guitar, as many parts as I want, and my voice, also as many harmonies as I’d like, and any other thing I want to add. Maybe once I get it finished recording I can post it up here to see what you guys think!
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Be blessed!
Goldfish 🙂

Music Suggestion

New music suggestion! Recommended to me by a friend on Facebook. It’s an indie band from the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. Since it’s a pretty knew and not yet well known band yet, I can’t find a good enough video to post. But, they’re called The Afterlights and I figured I’d post about them for my friend. I actually did like them, their music was pretty good! Last summer they released their EP and they have a new album coming out this summer. Check them out on iTunes and their Myspace page.



100 Cameras

You know, I’m big into photography. So when my friend and neighbor showed me this charity, 100 Cameras, I was super interested.

   The organization was established in 2009. Their mission is to empower    children in unjust situations. How?

                       With cameras!

People donate cameras or money for cameras. They go in (currently they have some in Sudan, Africa and Lower East Side, New York City) and give basic photography lessons to a few kids. After that, they leave a camera with the child and let them take pictures of their everyday surroundings and lifes. Then the pictures they take get put on the 100 Camera website for people to buy prints. You can buy all sizes of prints and stuff, and the money goes back to the kids!



So, this is a pretty sweet organization. At least, that’s the view from the fishbowl! 😉
