Together Again

The new issue of Vanity Fair shows these ladies together again. I adored these ladies in the early 90's, I would cut out hundreds of photos from magazines of Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schaffer and Linda Evangelista. They all still look AMAZING!

Looking Good & Doing Good

"We consider the environment in everything we do. My basic belief is that the first step towards reducing negative environmental impact is to minimise the use of resources. Which is why I feel that a hardwearing garment in a timeless design that you can wear until it is worn out has the least possible harmful effect on the environment. That's how I personally aim to live and work.
A company can exert much more influence. Which is why both internally and in production I try to take as much care as possible of the environment. Eco-jersey from Greece is one example of this, where the supplier has changed machinery and the cotton grower his crops in a process that takes three years.
Other examples include our standards regarding the use of chemicals. The use of chlorine-free paper for our mailings, a reduction in the amount of plastic and packaging we use, and opting for shipping in preference to air or road transport for our clothes deliveries are all conscious environmental choices."

My next read........

"Imagine a city in which people everywhere are asking how to make their neighborhood greener.

Imagine a city in which people don’t feel lonely any more and know the names of everyone around them.

Imagine a city in which all its inhabitants are URBAN ECOLOGISTS, because they have laid the building blocks for a healthy city.

Now imagine, that you too love a joyful community life, that you too interact fully with your neighbors. This life is to be yours, from today on.

Welcome to URBAN ECOLOGY. With this book, you are about to rethink the way you live and enjoy life."

A little crush.....

Wrap it up...........

"It began with a love of pattern, a passion for all things paper and a can-do attitude. Graphic designer, Erin Ruth, found her namesake company as a creative outlet with the desire to share her vision with the world. Inspired by life, Erin Ruth strives to combine current trends and beauty, all with a classic elegance.
Finding that perfect gift can be gratifying and the presentation should reflect the time and thought behind it. For this, Erin Ruth presents couture wrapping solutions perfect for all life's events, whether it be birthday or baby — housewarming or holiday.
Each paper was designed with meticulous attention to detail and with the idea that wrapping should be fun...not a chore!"

Enough already............time to get moving!

I am to embarrassed to even mention how long it has been since I have worked out. I used to run a lot and enjoyed my daily runs. No more excuses, I just bought some Nike running shoes, a Nike Ipod kit and a Nano. I am going to take my dog Annie for my first run in a long time. Wish me luck!
