Ecosalon Recipes: Curry in a Hurry

I love Indian food with its various curries, aromatic basmati rice, and fluffy, warm nan bread. Fortunately with a few good spices and fresh vegetables it’s not too difficult to create a tasty meal in a tolerable amount of time. But for those days when product over process is your […]

Copy, Paste, Click and Spare the V-Day Headache

I hate Hallmark holidays, I hate Hallmark holidays, I hate Hallmark holidays… Let’s have a little chat, my Valentine’s Day hater. I can hear the protests now: Don’t you know every day can be Valentine’s Day if you want it to be? Don’t you know you can tell people any […]

Sunday Recipe: Kale and Ginger Green Smoothie

Power charge your morning.  A friend joked recently that if you’re kale obsessed you could call yourself a “kalivore.” Call yourself what you want, but a kale smoothie is the perfect way to start the day. Drink this first thing, and you’re quickly energized. Yes, it’s bright green and you […]

Remember Tom, as in Tom’s Of Maine toothpaste? Well, Tom got tired of the same old, same old and decided to do something else. He and his wife, Kate, bought a sheep farm, named it Rambler’s Way and while watching all the pretty sheep with their soft fur a grazin’, […]

School of Hard Nots

Teaching the nation’s future fabric designers not to use flame retardants and harsh dyes is one thing. Teaming up with a leading manufacturer who is going the green route is another. These are the lessons being learned at the California School of Professional Fabric Design in Berkeley, California, founded 35 […]

The Perfect Wide-Leg Weekend Pant (Even if You're Petite!)

The extra wide-leg pant stylishly forgives a multitude of cookies, but it’s still a difficult look to pull off when you’re petite like me. Unless you wear sky-high heels, this style can make you appear shorter than you already are. And all that fabric just drowns a small frame. Don’t […]

Fashionably Paperless

It’s not uncommon for me to have a week old collection of receipts living in the bottom of my handbag – from the ATM, Starbucks, my local pharmacy and dry cleaners. Just the other day as I dug through the overflow in search of my ringing cell phone, it occurred […]

DIY Civil Engineering: Home Grown Cities

A truly modern city is one that’s overgrown. I love cities. In Rome last month, I was fascinated by how Italians utilized every corner of their balconies and gardens (more so in the Republic of Georgia) – admittedly as much for rusting motorbike/moped parts as for greenery. That’s men for […]

Pooka Dots Its Clothing With Kid Art

My girls sketch every place they can, from Japanese Manga characters on their art pads to elaborate marker tatoos on their old Converse high tops and up and down their arms. Too bad I don’t have the wherewithall to spin those masterpieces into an eco-wear biz, like graphic designer Andrea Guevara […]

Did I Just Spend $8 on Butter?

I’ll get right to the point: I spent eight bucks on butter. With all the news stories about the rising cost of food, I thought I’d check my most recent grocery receipt and see how I fared. My eye went straight to a $7.99 charge. For Horizon Organic Unsalted Butter. […]

The Small Chill

Not everyone has the space or budget for a large thermal wine cooler in their pad. Here’s a practical way to chill that organic vino and rescue the dying cork stopper industry at the same time. The Cork Bark Wine Chiller from Bitters Co. is from and features unglazed terracotta […]

Romper Room

I spotted them on the shelves last year and they’re out again in full bloom this season. The itty-bitty one-piece romper, a throwback to the 70s, is everywhere. My eye goes straight for it each and every time I’m shopping. I pick it up off the rack, stare at it […]
