How not to hide Christmas presents

I have been steadily collecting presents for Christmas. Having the opportunity to buy things is not the problem. Getting them in the house is another story. I have bags hiding everywhere. I had the opportunity to get some groceries without Luna and found a Princess Barbie Doll for a great price. I left it unwrapped in the trunk.

This morning i loaded the recycling bin into the trunk and did not think of the Barbie. While I was getting the last stuff from the house Luna had found the Barbie. She was holding it triumphantly in the air and had a big smile on her face. I explained she was not suppose to find the Barbie.

Her answer " That's alright mom I already forgot about it and I will just think I want a truck and not a Barbie." Well that's easier said then done. The whole day she is asking about that present she is not suppose to ask about. According to her she is not asking, but just reminding me.

I hope I do better with the other presents this year!

How to life greener

Lately there are so many ways to life a bit greener. Most items come in environmental friendly substitute. At you can now buy glasses made using recycled water and environmentally friendly packaging.

Here at our house we use energy saving lights. We have the airco on at 82 degrees during the summer. We have fans in every room to help circulate the air. We recycle glass, plastic and paper. We use our green left overs and table scraps to make compost. Now that our son just turned one I want to get a bike seat and bike my daughter to school instead of taking the car all the time.

We use reusable bottles to take with us on trips and bring our own grocery bags to the store.

One of the biggest improvements in our life is joining a local CSA. We now grow our own vegetables and work in the garden every Saturday morning. It is wonderful to taste natural grown vegetables every day.

Bare Skin

I am a big fan of Bare Escentuals. Now Leslie Blodgett came up with a brand new perfume line named Bare Skin. It is available at Sephora.

"Imagine you're on a beach. The warm rays are beating down on you. There is nothing on the agenda for days, save for sunbathing and sleeping in. Leslie Blodgett has captured the ultimate vacation through fragrance with this intoxicating blend of creamy sensuality, dreamy florals and sexy musks. Glowing, gorgeous sun-kissed skin that just begs to be touched is at the heart of this limited-edition scent, created exclusively for Sephora.

Top: No clock in sight and no reason to wake up (Black Pepper, Freesia, Anise).
Middle: Hot, hot hopping to the towel on sand (Iris, Vanilla Orchid, Plumeria, Patchouli).
Bottom: Finally, time to mingle, baring amber shoulders still warm from the day (Sandalwood, Labdanum, Musk). "
