Keeping Gifts Eco-Friendly

Whether you want to admit it or not, you've Christmas shopping on the brain. I find myself curiously looking while at the shops. Considering who the currently in-sight item would be perfect for. Cheeky Monkey Drinking Cup is the choicest stocking stuffer I've found this season. Biodegradable, dishwasher safe  and made of bamboo fibre, with exception to the silicone lid and wrap, this is a great gift. It encourages water consumption and you can even enjoy hot beverages, you organic coffee junkies. Shop smart and look for deals like I did with this one. Small but sensible. $7. Not bad.

Happy Holiday shopping.

Read the Labels

I'm an advocate of reading the care labels designers put on their pieces. It helps to ensure the item lasts and if it's a good quality choice, it should. Well, I didn't follow my own advice thereby not heeding to jeweler Lindi Kingi's care label and nope my bracelets are in a state. Too horrid to display here. The very clear instructions are available online and here's a screenshot. I love my bracelets, the lava beads in particular. Note how it reads not to expose to water and lay flat when not in use. Did I mention I hardly ever remove them from my wrists? I'm pretty serious. Shower, yoga, here, there and everywhere. I liberally stack them on and don't take them off. Consequently, I've lost charms, trinkets and color. Bad me. Read the labels.

I consider them to now have a bit of character but I see more in my near future. Hello, Christmas.
