These earrings, in varied hues of gold, embody different styles, and for different skin color. If you have fairer skin, go for the bright gold and bring the glow out from your skin. If you have a slight tan, go for the dark gold earrings and look instantly city-chic. If you have a deep tan, both colors work so well. I love the way bright gold exhibits one’s boldness that throws all inhibitions away with that hell-may-care attitude. Dark gold or antiqued gold has that romantic feel of bygone days or that snazzy feel of our fast-paced cities.

{ tree hugging } April 1, 2009

 

This month, in conjunction with Earth Day on April 22, pling will be featuring ‘Earth Month Inspirations’ – handcrafted pieces that draw inspiration from nature, trees, doves, elephants, flowers and many more.

 

Let’s get conscious of what we are doing to our planet Earth. And after that, not just in April, we can make small efforts to our everyday life and start living different for the sake of our ailing planet. I’ll also be sharing little tips that I follow to do my part. Even if you think you are just 1 person, you can do something. And I don’t mean building an eco-home (which requires millions of dollars) or buying a hybrid car…but small things, small changes that make a difference.

 

First up…TREES! I love them and would be really sad if they are gone from our world. They are really beautiful…besides all the good things they do for our Earth and us. Sharing some of my pictures taken of trees when I was in Rome, The Vatican and the Singapore Zoo.

Green Tip: Separate your garbage. I put a paper bag to contain all my paper rubbish – especially all those mailers/flyers that I get in the mail and including the cardboard package of all household items and beauty products. After that, I just bring them to the recycling centre 2 blocks from my apartment. Easy!

 

This series is inspired by trees – of all colors, flowering or non-flowering, standing tall against skies of all hues.
