Sail Away

It seems fitting that only now Refinery 29 would pop out another round of off-shore wardrobe enticements as the sunny months roll around. What surprises me is that the design is all too cliche - just last year when I began Surviving Green, my inspiration spawned from reusable, fashion friendly finds - and it wasn't difficult to find some sailing inspired getups. Still, I always appreciate a little RRR...[reduce, reuse, recycle]

designed by Angela Adams and found at J Crew.


1 + 1 = 3, 4, 5...?

i found this site pretty disturbing...and must admit that i've had a few of these drinks before. makes you really think about your sugar intact for the day when you see these equivalents...

at least i can stop at one cupcake, right?


divine in a cup

apparently i've become obsessed with cupcakes, because last night after dinner with the lovely Erna we finished our Spanish inspired meal with a cupcake from babycakes.

yes, the dinner was delicious but it was much more refreshing to talk to a fellow writer who wasn't looking to compete with me. rather, we exchanged ideas and thoughts on this social media world we're living in and vowed to help each other along in the process. granted its a cut throat world out there, but why would you want to do anything but be the most genuine person - good karma will help us writers in the long run, and making great contacts now can only be the best thing for making it

just taste that freshness

With all the great plastic options that retails stores make available for consumers, it still really irks me that people use paper/plastic utensils EVERY SINGLE DAY. It isn't like making this kind of eco-friendly move is totally conscious because it is so simple – just reuse your coffee cup every morning or a plastic bowl for your breakfast/lunch. At work it might be tough, but everyone has a bit of storage space in their desk or leeway in their kitchen - Crate & Barrel even has some adorable options for taking the reusable route, which might cost more (but not a ton) initially but turns into money back into your pocket in the long run (and more time for Mother Nature too). Seriously people, why would you use 3 plastic forks a day anyway?

local flavor

this past weekend i was able to check out our local farmer's in La Jolla -
besides being one of the biggest in the area, i was really amazed by all the fresh colors and inventive treats that showcase fun organics and local creativity;
it really shows that buying local is better!

hello, giant

I'll admit, my adult obsession with mary-kate and ashley olsen is probably unhealthy. but when i came back to reality after babysitting two teenagers this week, i put something together that made my olsen obsession even more grotesque - my 15 year old {that i watch, not that i birthed} is about the same size as both girls - at 90 pounds and just under five feet, i feel like i can squeeze that little girl to smithereens - without the heels and the punchy red lipstick, i wondered whether i'd walk right over them if they passed me in the street. i'd tower over them, almost ironic seeing them seem so powerful from afar
