Am I Wrong? Almost Two Years Later....

I can't believe that it's over two years since my last blog post! Tsk tsk! I guess that's what happens when your working full-time and going to school full-time. But, I am going to try and blog some more. To be honest, I may have not been reminded or persuaded to post if it weren't for a fellow Facebook friend, Ariana Browning, who stated, "If you've written a blog or vlogged today, share the specific link below. NOT your main page, but the actual blog url."

So, I forced er, told myself that I would blog today. To sum up things currently going on:

1) Please sign and then share by June 30th! Sign the petition to save seals’ lives! It's free & takes just 1 min w/valid e-mail!

2) The song that I love for the past few days is "AM I WRONG?" by Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz

I am like now obsessed with it. Everything is just awesome about this song-the beat, lyrics, etc.!!!! Fun fact: It was released on April 12, 2013. But, now it's finally making its' way to the U.S.

(You see, I'm not the only one behind...okay, so I'm a bit of a turtle when it comes to keeping up with blogging and music.) lol :D

Anyways-everyone Happy Tuesday! And you can listen to the song while signing the above petition-it's great mood music. Both will make you feel good about yourself! :D

Blast from the Past: Celebrity Eco-Friendly Shoes on April 24, 2008

Celebrity Eco-Friendly Shoes

Celebrities like Gisele Bundchen and Natalie Portman support eco-friendly shoes and have developed their own shoe lines that are environmentally friendly.

In January 2008, Gisele Bundchen's ad campaign featured her scantily clad only with water around her. The ad is to raise awareness for her new Ipanema sandals and her website (ipanemagiselebundchen.com.br) features tips on water conservation. The manufacturer of the sandals, Grendene, claims a number of green policies including recycling 99% of their water.

Gisele has made saving the environment, especially through water conservation, a mission. On her website she states, "Water is very important in my life as in your life. Seventy five percent of our body is made up of water. I think that we have to protect the water, we have to protect what is ours."

Lastly, she thanked all her fans and consumers of her shoes. "I want you to feel very proud because you are doing your part…you are a major part of this project. I have to say from the bottom of my heart, Thank You Very Much for your support. Because if we don't take care of our planet, who is going to do it?"

Natalie Portman was also recently added to the list of "environmentally-friendly" celebs. The famous PETA spokesperson joined with shoe company, Te Casan, to create eco-friendly shoes that are free of any animal testing. Natalie Portman's shoes are limited edition and they only make 100 pairs per size. They are quite pricey, but worth every penny. You can buy them at the Te Casan website (tecasan.com )
