Evian has this designer bottle by Christian Lacroix. They can be purchased for $13.95. How great would this bottle be to reuse? Love the idea.
So everyone knows I am obsessed with chandeliers...and here is another to add to the list. I love this one! So much sparkle!
This 28yearold, 5'7" star is wonderful. I saw him in "Atonement", and completely fell in love. He left me severely unhinged. Not because I thought he was gorgeous (although he does have a very captivating look, but not traditionally beautiful in the least), but because he can truly act. Not just play a part, he is the part, and he forces you to become involved and connected to him personally. It amazes me. He has been in a few flicks, but as I said before, "Atonement" was what made me admire him. Last night I watched "Becoming Jane" for the first time. I was not very much impressed, which kind of saddened me. It was very similar to the classically written and produced "Pride and Prejudice" and I felt like I was watching a version that had not-as-happy-of-an-ending. Yes Jane Austen wrote the novel, but if you have read the book and have seen the movie, this movie of Jane Austen's "suspected" and "theorized" love life, is all too familiar. Nonetheless, McAvoy was the movies' saving grace. I kept thinking those eyes, those enchanting, interesting eyes...where have I seen them before? Guess what? I figured out where... Mr. McAvoy and the famous Mr. Tumnus are one in the same! How perfect is that? He just keeps getting better and better in my book.

Melanie Mauer, a wonderful photographer who I did an amazing internship with, blogged about this not too long ago. While I have no kids, and won't for quite some time, I will do my best to keep these in mind (and hope they still make them) when I do have children.
PLASTIC BAGS & THE PLANET The average family brings home 1,000 bags every year. Most of those bags end up in land fills. That really adds up - 100 billion plastic bags are sent to landfill in the US each year.
In landfills, it can take up to 1000 years for a bag to decompose. Plastics don't biodegrade, they photo-degrade, breaking down into tiny toxic pieces that contaminate soil and water or harm wildlife.
Every time you use your Baggu bag instead of plastic or paper you are doing something Good.Using one Baggu for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags.
I blogged about these before, but I just ordered my own! I can't wait for them to get here so I can use them!!
Look how great they fold up!

Love these bags, but I think I am actually going to purchase some different ones. Reusing the same bags instead of getting plastic ones every time is such a wonderful concept.
Just purchased all of these curtains for my new place, YAY!
