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!

Princess Beatrice makes lemonade.

Remember the hat that Princess Beatrice wore at last month’s Royal Wedding? How could you forget!  Well, that much talked about fashion faux pas has just been sold for (wait for it… over $130,000.00 US dollars) Whh.h.h.at? Well it seems that Princess Beatrice (the 22 year old daughter of Sarah Ferguson aka Fergie and Price Andrew. not to mention granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II) is going to have the last laugh on all the fashion nay-sayers when she decided to make lemons into lemonade and auction her Phillip Treacy hat on eBay with proceeds of the sale to go to the charity UNICEF and Children in Crisis. Who would have thought that the little hat that could-would go on auction and sell for $131,648.00-to be exact.

“Our hat’s are off to you Princess Beatrice-well done.”
