Latest Obsession
Inspirational Jewlery from LuluBug
il_570xN.234671265.jpg

My teenage daughter recently left for a summer service trip to Thailand. I was scouring Etsy for a piece of inspirational jewelry to give her when I stumbled upon LuluBug. I’m smitten with her whimsical, original designs in sterling silver. My Chloe scored a locket that said “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams…” but I’ve got my eye on several other pieces as well. Who could resist the “You are my sunshine” necklace?

Ingredient of the Month
Crushed Freshwater Pearls

Crushed Freshwater Pearls: Celebrated by Asian women and ancient Chinese pharmacopoeia for more than 3,000 years, pearl powder has a rich history and a myriad of legendary tales about its use at the Imperial Palace. Created by pulverizing real freshwater pearls, it is reputed to boost skins brightness and is rich in both amino acids and trace minerals.

Food For Thought

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

- Steve Jobs

Home Spa Rituals
Lavender- Honey Milk Bath

3 tbsp. Dried Lavender Flowers*
1 1/2 cups Whole Milk or Buttermilk
1/3 cup Honey

Process lavender flowers in a blender until they become a powder, turning off the blender and scraping down the sides as necessary. Whisk together lavender powder, milk, and honey in a glass bowl, then pour into a jar. Before each use, shake the jar and pour half of the mixture into the bath. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Makes enough for 2 baths.

*Dried lavender flowers can be found in the spice section of gourmet and specialty stores. (Recipe courtesy of the National Honey Board)

Celebrate Earth Day 2006

April 22, 2006

Today is Earth Day, a celebration of all things natural and a time dedicated to understanding our environmental impact. This is one my favorite days of the year…I encourage you to do something special today to honor Mother Earth.

1. Send a free Earth Day E-Card via the Nature Conservancy to help raise awareness.

2. Join a local event in your community. There are literally hundreds of festivals, marches and celebrations going on right now!

3. Learn how you can conserve resources at home, at work and on the road. These easy-to-follow tips can save you time and money as you help reduce your environmental impact.

4. Sign an online petition to stop global warming, to save our seas, and to protect endangered animals.

5. Contact your congressmen & senators- urge them to take a proactive stance on environmental issues.

6. Make a donation to the Environmental Defense Fund to preserve our oceans, protect endangered species and fight for claner air. Bella Luccè is in the process of becoming an Earth Share partner (through the EDF), helping our employees to directly donate a portion of each paycheck to important environmental causes.

7. Take a quiz to learn more about your personal ecological footprint. Prepare to be shocked…

8. Buy something organic today. Also check out some tasty organic recipes and prepare a meal for your family that you can feel good about. On a budget? Learn 17 tips for buying organic on the cheap.

9. Teach your children the importance of environmental awareness. Younger children can play games, read stories and create printable activities at the EPA website, while older kids will enjoy an action packed game of Hog Busters.

10. Discover businesses that are taking strides to become more earth-friendly- then support them. Also browse 1% For The Planet to see a list of businesses who have pledged 1% of annual net revenues to support environmentally-friendly causes. On this day, Bella Luccè is especially proud to be a member of both the Organic Trade Association and the Green Products Alliance.

It is my hope that we all take small steps to make every day Earth Day. In a neat little coincidence, today also marks the 1st birthday of The Buzz. Happy Birthday Buzz!
