Do Your Own Eco Manicure: Go Green

Manicures have always been a fun past time to partake in with our girlfriends. They’re not terribly expensive, and you can sit there chatting while your toes and nails are getting all prettied up!

Tree Hugger has one of our […]

Winterize: Go Green

Sweaters: Recycle This

This holiday season inspires us to become rampant consumerists, even though we try to be minimalists in every way. Argh! Dang that adorable Santa!
