Did you know we are exposed to 300 toxins before we are even born? Even more disturbing, did you know that the primary U.S. Law that regulates everyday products hasn’t been updated in 38 years?! I’d say we’ve learned a lot of new things about toxins, chemicals, and health in general in the past 38 years and it’s time for some big changes!

Hopefully those big changes are coming soon! On April 30 of this year, a very important petition was presented to Congress along with 120,000 signatures of citizens who were also concerned about these old and moldy chemical laws.

The presentation was made by the cutest superheroes around, Seventh Generation’s very own Toxin Freedom Fighters, along with Senator Kristen Gillibrand (NY) and Many others, including John Replogle (also in a mask!) who is the President of Seventh Generation.

This past Thursday Katie and headed to LA for our final supply run for her baby shower (which happened Sunday and was everything we hoped it would be – that post is coming soon!)  We hit all the greatest places in just a few hours, plus some of that awesome traffic we all know and love so much. FIDM, Flower Market, and drinks at the Ace with our cousin Mercedes. 

I’ve decided that party planning is probably the most fun any girl could ever have. Everyone asked me a million times if I was stressed, but it’s more like a stress reliever for me. Flowers, fabrics, food – it’s my personal trinity of soothing!

You know how much I love black clothing. (I mean, I truly, madly, deeply love it.) But, recently I’ve been trying to branch out and make my wardrobe less… shall we say – blah? So when I was offered a gift card from Boden, I jumped at the chance to add a little splash of color to my wardrobe! You know what caught my eye? This adorable chambray shirt! Okay, so it’s not such a bold color choice, but I am just in love with the feel of it, and it’s been perfect for everything and comfortable enough that I want to wear it at home too!
And wouldn’t you know it? I did pair it with some black for a little jaunt out!  The Casual Shirt is available online here. As always, thank you for reading about the sponsors who make my life a little more fun!
