6 Guiding Tips Sustainable Bloggers Live By - via Global Garbs

If you're loving the idea of learning how to live more sustainably and dressing in a more eco conscious way, you don't have to do it all at once. It is a learning process, one of slowly becoming more aware and of making the commitment to changing your habits for the better. But all these  small changes have big impact, which is why I and Beau Monde Organics have a mission of Peaceful Positive Change.

To help you with that, I'm sharing a great post from Global Garbs, who interviewed six eco fashion bloggers and they've shared the sustainable living tips they live by. I loved it especially because 3 of them are some of my fav eco fashion bloggers!

Take a moment to click through so you can meet them (and follow!), and read the advice from them and the other smart, savvy, ethical and sustainable bloggers. Their thoughts on sustainable living will help you make more eco-centric practices a part of your life. Not all at once, of course, but by growing towards it a bit at a time, a little more each day. 

Head over to blog Beau Monde for more info. and the full post.

Yikes! 2 months since my last post.

That's the longest I've ever gone since I started it over 6 years ago.

I apologize for the radio silence.  But I had a bad case of VBP.
(Very Busy Person). Yep. it's a thing. I'd taken on multiple major projects all at the same  time. I got so busy, that some things fell to the wayside, lying lonely in a ditch till I could make it back. Now, I'm here to pick up again.
With that,  I'm announcing my new collection. But you won't be able to see it, except for more than some sneak peeks, (like the one above) until one more thing happens. The task I jumped into, the ones I'd been putting off for quite a while, and the task I've been buried in for months. (
a major cause of the VBP syndrome!) From my studio trenches, I've been working on all the intensive detailed work involved in building a website. In this case, it's a Re-Design, where my older, existing website will be closed and the Re-designed site will take it's place.

But I'll soon be happily revealing my brand-spanking-new, bright & shiny Re-Designed Website. Fair payback for the VBP.
It'll have all the latest bells and whistles (though they'll be quiet ones), it will be fully responsive, (for all you who love your mobiles, i-pads and tablets) And I hope you'll think it's beautiful. All to make your organic scarf and accessories shopping an easy, fun and enjoyable experience.

(Because - don't forget; I'm not a blogger, I'm a artist and designer who has a blog. I use this blog to share and promote my art and my art-based  products, and also to promote the eco conscious, organic mindful living that inspired this blog. And through it, I try to inspire you to create positive change in your life, and in the lives of others.

Beau Monde Organics will be celebrating the Re-Design Launch with special treats & fab  goodies, but... of course - the best treats will be reserved for those on our list community,
so make sure that's you! Sign up now to get in on the previews, first access and best goodies! Go to and use the Sign-up box (on left side) or wait a bit, and you can use pop-up box to sign up with us. Our existing site is still live & kicking, so while you're there, shop for gifts of beautiful organic art scarves, made here in LA. All orders get Free shipping, and if you enter code 'SCARFJOY' at checkout, you get 30% off your order, too! Woo-hoo!

More details, along with design previews, coming soon. Follow along on your fav social platform too, I'd love to see you there!

peace, love and (organic chocolate) kisses!
