Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress.
I think that many of us think green and we think granola- crunchy- hippie, of going without, and it really doesn’t have to be that way. Going green can be a way to add something to your life- the vibrance of growing plants and vegetables, a connection with nature, or just the knowledge that your lifestyle is healthy for your family and the earth.
Sophie Uliano champions the green life while maintaining “the glitz, the glam and the gleaming house.” I’ve read her first book, Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life, and it’s a nice, straightforward introduction to going green without having to embrace your inner granola girl, with lots of beauty tips if I recall correctly. Admittedly, I sort of skimmed over those at the time; if you saw me quoted in “The Dark Side of Beauty” in the News Journal last week you already know I pretty much went au natural with my own beauty regimen. And by “au naturel,” I mean lazy.
In any case, I do still want to dye my hair and wear makeup for the holidays, and I’m not really sure where to start researching my best options. I’d also like to hear where I can get organic cotton clothes that fit my sense of style and don’t cost a fortune.
Oh happy day, for I received an email this afternoon letting me know that as part of the launch of their new Wicked Fresh! Toothpaste and Mouthwash line, Tom’s of Maine is hosting a Wicked Fresh! live web chat Q&A with Sophie.
“Get an exclusive peek into Sophie’s wickedly cool, eco-friendly life, learn about the inspiration behind her New York Times bestselling “Gorgeously Green” book series, and get some tips on how to live fabulously without breaking the bank or hurting the planet.”
Fun! I love live web chats. It’s happening tonight, September 15th, from 8:00-9:00pm EST. You can watch here (hint, hint) presuming that I’ve loaded this widget correctly, or you can check it out at the Tom’s of Maine Facebook page on the Live Chat tab.
You can submit questions ahead of time or during.
