It's Time To Love The Planet

Happy Birthday Earth!

If any of you know me...you also know that ANY holiday is my favorite, that includes these odd ball days but whatevs a holiday is a holiday.

Earth Day, a whole day devoted to the earth!!  Since I have become increasingly aware of my health & what I'm putting into my body, earth day seems like a good a day as any to break out the organic products & bake up some amazing Earth Day treats.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and followed this link to a kick ass blog Bird on a Cake.  Cupcakes have been a long time weakness of mine and these are such a cute idea.  My plan was to make a dozen, eat maybe 2 (ok maybe 3 or 4) & then dump the rest (I DO have a wedding to look good for after all).

Here's how it went down:

I had some cupcake mix on hand from William Sonoma (vanilla bean cupcakes...to die for).  Add to that the necessary ingredients and once evenly mixed, divide your cake batter into 2 bowls (one bowl for green batter, the other for blue).  The only difference was that I opted to use natural food coloring.  Next, Line your cupcake pan with baking cups and alternate your colors by dropping spoonfuls of batter into cups. 

Bake at 350 for around 16-18 minutes.


Now you are ready to decorate & stuff your face!! (well...maybe not 'stuff' but enjoy one or two ;)

I also made a stop today to our local park.  I take my dog there all the time & since we moved up to Seattle they have this amazing thing that I've discovered, a COMMUNITY garden.  It is SO neat.  You can help plant flowers, fruit and veggies and then when it comes time to harvest....harvest all that amazing organically grown produce!  Here is a picture of the garden:

It doesn't look like much but it's such an awesome concept!  I cannot wait to have kids one day and show them where food comes from and what is means to plant a seed into the ground and watch it grow. YEA MAN!

Last but not least, this fashion/beauty blog would be nothing without a post of the top 10 Eco Friendly Beauty products.  I came across this posting and I am in love with all of these products.  Remember when I told you I was trying to make the switch to an all organic lifestyle...this is a start!

I can't speak for all of these products but I CAN say that the Tarte Cheek Stain and Korres Shower Gel in Guava are among my all time faves.  I am excited to try out the rest!

What will you be doing for Earth Day??
