This blog was started, and is intended to illustrate that environmentalism happens through small acts, is not difficult, and that it does not always have to be some big life changing event that forces you to live in the tree tops with no electricity. All that being said, one of my small acts was to start this blog to gain some friends to help me save the world.

I'm so pretty oh so pretty

This post may be my most obvious one yet (and that is actually very hard to do since I am captain obvious) but I thought it worth mentioning that cosmetics are caca.  The cosmetic industry spends more than any other major industry in the US on advertising to make you feel old, fat, ugly and to let you know that they have the solutions for you.  Oh dear, I am here to say that they do not.  No need to throw away money on junk that does not work.  Again don't think that I have never spent money on some sort of miracle cream only to find out that I still look exactly like I did before hand (still trying to see if I can get my money back on that one).  The best way to take care of yourself if to eat healthy and maybe throw in a bit of exercise in there.  I really have no idea what I am talking about here since healthy food and exercise always sound like punishments, just trying to say don't be sucked in to the advertising of those cosmetic companies.  You look just fine.  And if you do need something, like creams, or soaps, or shampoos always look for items that have not been tested on animals and stuff that is safe for you and for the drain.  Because all the poison they try to sell you is absorbed by your skin and by the drain which then effects the water.  Oh that circle of life.  Anyway I will keep this short so as to not look like a preachy fanatic.  But save your money and/or spend it on better, healthier, more environmentally friendly products that you may need or better yet make your own (there are some pretty easy options out there just search the internet).  And I will bet you look stunning at the end.
