Happy Earth Day 2016! Today is the day we remind ourselves to be kind to our planet, not just for ourselves, but for future generations.

Take a moment today to evaluate how you are helping our planet in your daily life. Are there ways you can use less water throughout your home? Are there lights on in rooms which are empty? How can we all save energy, water, and reduce our carbon footprint. Can you walk to the post office instead of drive? Can you reuse a plastic bottle instead of throwing it away?

We are always looking for ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle in our home. I know I need to do better when it comes to my plastic bottle usage. I would also love to find out more ways to conserve water; especially since El Nino is over, and La Nina is approaching! Yikes!

If you would like some ideas about how you can help on Earth Day, please visit

If you are feeling charitable, please take a moment to look at my favorite environmental charity, The League to Save Lake Tahoe, also know as “Keep Tahoe Blue.” You can find them online at

Since this is a fashion, style, and beauty blog, I thought I would share a few fabulous products with you which use recycled parts to make them beautiful. I hope you love them!

Happy Earth Day! Today is the perfect day to think about how you can do your part to make the world a better place. We only have one Earth, and once it is damaged, where will we be? It is our job now to preserve the Earth for our future generations. How do we do this? 

Reduce the amount of waste you throw away. Household items and clothing which are not used anymore can be sold or donated to charity. Broken household items can be repaired or used for parts. Anything which is not usable might be recyclable! When in doubt, call or visit your recycling center to find out if an item can be recycled before throwing it in the trash and filling up our landfills.

Reuse old items by repairing them, trading with a friend, selling them or donating them. Everything has a use! Torn or damaged clothing can easily be used as rags for cleaning the house or washing the car. If you have kids, they can be made into doll clothing! My daughter made backpacks for all of her dolls with old fabric from damaging clothing. Think of the imaginative possibilities!

Recycle plastics, metals, paper and more. Always check with your local recycling center when in doubt!

Lastly, shop for items made from sustainable materials and/or made in eco-conscious factories. The Earth gives us life, we need to preserve its’ life.
