STUFF I LOVE - SPRING 2018
Just like the classic Birkenstocks but PLASTIC-ish, meaning I can chase my three little people over the river and through the mud, rinse these puppies off and BOOM! Brand new. Dress them down for the kids or pair them with a chic blazer for a business-casual look. Shop them here.
I love writing... actually writing with pen and paper. So when I find a pen like this - always smooth and in this many colors - I gotta stock up. Don't take my word for it, the reviews speak for themselves. Find them here.

Earlier this week, my office building handed out freebie tomato plants in celebration of Earth Day... so I snagged one and officially planted my first-ever garden! It's just a start, but it feels great to be on my way to off-the-vine freshness from my very own backyard.
And, because Earth Day, I thought I'd also give my hubs a pat on the back for going all-green when he recently stocked up on new lawn equipment. His new mower, blower, and weed wacker are all gas free and share the same 60-volt battery. Plus, they're made by the same manufacturer, so they match... and that makes the fashionably conscious wife oh-so-happy.
Experts estimate that 5% of U.S. air pollution is caused by lawnmowers. Surprising, isn't it? Luckily for Mother Nature, the word "green" has moved from trend zone to household name. Green lawn equipment has actually been around for quite some time, and slow-adopters like us are starting to catch up.
This is it! This Greenworks mower became ours a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't easy to choose which one to get - there are several different models - but we chose the 21-inch 60-volt version. My favorite part is that it folds up to about the same size as our stroller. We just push it up against the wall, and charge the battery for next time. How easy is that?
If you're taking care of your lawn, you might as well take care of Mother Earth, too. Amiright?
