Hello, glamour gals! April is full of eventful happenings – April showers, Fiesta (if you’re in San Antonio…), Tax Day, Military Kid Awareness month… ohmygosh – the list goes on and on!

We’re all familiar with the three R’s, right? Reduce, reuse and recycle? I’d liketo buy a vowel and add in a “U” to the line-up.

I love this trend – it feels so inline with our “I want to live fabuLESSly” world right now. I’ve not attempted many upcycled projects ( I’m finally getting around to a verticle palette garden) but there are a gazillion out there that I’d love to try:
(Can you tell I’m totally crushing on an industrial/vintage/chic thing right now?) What are your plans for Earth Day? Do you participate in a community event? Commit to a new better-the-Earth challenge? I’d love to hear! In the mean time, head over to Fab Bites and check out what Misha’s got cookin’ for Momma E.
