{ squirrels and trees } April 28, 2009

 

The last post before the month ends is about squirrels. Alas, not much connection to the Earth Month, except that in my Singaporean-induced mind that it has to do with ‘saving’. I’m sure my fellow Singaporeans would know why. It’s a particular bank’s icon when we were all schooling and the government was inculcating early savings habit with us.

 

So aptly, all in the name of SAVING. Saving the Earth I mean, and you save money too. Most Earth-damaging actions cost much. And does it matter that I also think squirrels are adorable? Here’s a picture that I came across.

{ 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.

{ retro gold } January 25, 2008

 

A splash of vintage gold goes a long way this season, what with yellow, petrol blue & neon being the must-have hues this year. With these statement pieces in retro gold, you can inject a dose of the seventies hell-may-care glamor or take a romantic literal lead into the imagery depicted on the necklace.

 

And because these necklaces are what every cool girl has (at least one!), I’m bringing them back as must-have extras for dressing up your plains, jeans or simply adding an attitude to your color combination. To avoid: dangling earrings when donning these necklaces. (They are eye-catching enough!) Simple studs will do. Now, isn’t that easy? It’s wear and go!
