I hope you are having a terrific morning/day/night, depending on where you are located ;)
However - as we all know by now, the people of Haiti are not experiencing very good times right now due to the intense earthquake last week. The news reports have been heartbreaking to look at - so much has been destroyed, and so many people have died or become homeless... it's simply terrible.
Now, the good news is that if you are a nail polish addict like me, you can now get your hands on a whole special collection of gorgeous BB Couture shades AND help the people of Haiti at the same time! Isn't that great?!
Here's the deal - Kim at Overall Beauty and BB Couture have joined forces and created a special set of 6 tropical inspired colors, of which 25% of all sales are going to the Salvation Army towards their efforts to get relief into the hands of those who need it most; namely the women and children of Haiti.

The "Hands of Hope Collection" by BB Couture includes:
~Tortuga Island - explore the exotic lush green island foliage
~Kyona Beach – gaze up at the cloudless baby blue sky while sunning on the beach
~Bassin’s Blue – experience subtle turquoise pools linked by spectacular waterfalls
~Labadie Beach – delight in the delicate pink hues of the setting sun
~Cape Haitian – mornings bring a mysterious pale violet haze over the mountains
~Paradise – savor the natural beauty of Haiti along the endless sandy beige beaches
So, I hope you will all head over to Overall Beauty and buy the set - nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something...
The whole set cost $54 and is available now!!
EDIT::: I was just visiting Mary's Blog (you gotta check it out if you haven't already - she has swatches of the collection), and apparently you can purchase these individually as well, and 25% of the sale of the singles is also going towards the goal of raising $5,000.00 from the proceeds of this special collection! Great!!
I think those shades are beautiful, they will fit perfectly into my "Spring/Summer 2010 Polish Wardrobe" :)
Do spread the word about this - tweet, re-tweet, blog, Facebook, etc, to get more people to help.
And, while visiting Overall Beauty, don't forget to sign up for their newsletter! Use the sign up box in the right hand column. Kim indicates that she has quite a few nice surprises up her sleeve, for those who are signed up on the mailing list. There will specials that only those on the list will ever know about, she states on the site. Sounds interesting, doesn't it?
So - what do you all think?
Great idea combining nail polish addiction and charity? Going to buy it? Like the shade selection?
Don't like it?
Tell me your thoughts - would love to hear from you, dear readers!
I promise I'll be back *very* soon!
Hopefully I will soon have managed to get a little more structure of my day time and my schedule, so I can find the time to start posting more regularly again - I really miss it, and also really miss the contact and communication with all of you guys - fellow bloggers and readers.
Til next time; take care ♥
