Happy Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. Our planet is so beautiful yet fragile. Let’s do our best to take care of this lovely Earth that we inhabit.

Let’s all do our part to preserve our environment. Here are a few tips that can help make a difference in our environmental footprint:

  • Recycle (Since this is a blog filed with fashion, might I suggest three sites where you can sell aka recycle items you no longer want in your closet: Check out: Poshmark. The Real Real and eBay are great places to start.
  • Donate things you don’t want
  • Try reusable bags
  • Turn things off
  • Make Food scraps into compost

Happy Earth Day!

Each and every year we celebrate Earth Day. This year it fell on Friday  April 22, 2016, and if you happen to have missed the occasion never fear because….. you can stop whatever you doing right now, take your eyes off  your cell phone, iPad or whatever other mobile device(s)you’re ensconced in and take a look around you OUTSIDE. I have no doubt you will notice the beauty of this planet wherever you go-half the battle is just stopping and taking the time to notice. Seeee told you. There is so much beauty of this planet let’s all do our part to keep it that way.

Earth Day Glam

There’s no better day than Earth Day to celebrate the ingenuity of recycled paper products. AND….when those  paper products include the use of  newspapers and magazines “reworked” into some pretty fabulous fashion then all the better. Here are a few of my favorites that give cut, paper scissors a whole new spin!

Happy Earth Day

Earth Day opens my eyes to the bounty of beauty available to us on this planet. Mother Nature is definitely an AMAZING designer because  when you stop and appreciate the colors and textures of all that “natural” on this Earth… it is astounding. I hope we all take a moment this Earth Day (and everyday for that matter ) to truly appreciate the beauty of nature. I also hope that in some small way we all do our part to recycle, reuse and repurpose in an effort to keep this natural beauty at it’s best not only for us but for the future. Happy Earth Day.

Earth Day arrives this Friday (April 22, 2011). It wasn’t that long ago that people equated the celebration of our planet with sitting around a campfire, eating granola and singing kumbaya…those days are o.v.e.r.! People have become much more environmentally conscious (thank goodness) and are taking steps to save the planet  by recycling, composing and purchasing eco-friendly products.

In the U.S. of A. we celebrate most holidays (think Memorial Day, Labor Day, President’s Day) with what else…a sale! Being a good American and wanting to save the planet, I find it only “fitting” to share with you a few sensational “eco-friendly sales” taking place online. To top it off I have info on a free Cup of Joe to get you going!
