Its April 22nd….. love your “Earth Day”! 

By now you’ve read the countless tips on how to save your earth.  Don’t leave the water on when you brush your teeth, change your light bulbs to florescent, walk instead of drive….Blah blah blah…

    I wanted to share some amazing products that are Eco-friendly with you that I absolutely love!

   Handbags: Check out Kim white.  She makes these amazingly cute bags !  The fabric she uses is recycled from old cars!  I have one of these little make up bags for myself. I picked a gray,black and neon green houndstooth from a 1981 Datsun!  The fabric is so soft and extra durable since it was made for cars. They fit perfect in your purse and the material is vintage yet somehow still so current !

 Shoes:   Terra Plana  is a brand new earth friendly designer shoe brand.  The company makes use of recycled materials such as quilts, Coffee Bags,Jackets; Shirts, Jeans, left over leather scraps from the car industry. Even the heels and foot beds of the shoes are made from wood from sustainable forests.

934_multiquilt_n2930_yellownubuck_nSoy Candles:    Are a great alternative to beeswax candles in many ways! Soy wax is made from a renewable source, soy wax, which is hydrogenated soybean oil.

Soy candles are cheap
Soy wax is all-natural
Soy candles last longer
Wax spills are easy to clean
Soy candles produce less soot
Scented soy candles distribute more flavour

  Eco friendly Make-up:100-pure-hd-01

100% Pure products stand by their name. They contain nothing unnatural or chemically engineered. Their products are highly effective because they are concentrated and are free of additives and thickeners. When using a 100% Pure product, you never have to worry about harming yourself or the environment.

100% Pure products are free of toxins, chemicals, artificial chemicals, artificial colors, and harsh detergents.

100% Pure products are vegan, except for the few containing Honey, which are vegetarian. Animal fat, used in many soaps and lotions, is proven to be pore-clogging and in some cases has caused illness. 100% Pure doesn’t believe in putting your health at risk for the sake of beauty.

Good afternoon Bevelloers!
Well its thursday night here in the good ol’ RDU and if you’re like me,  you know that tonight is a BIG night to go out! Sometimes there’s more going on thursdays than your typical Friday and Saturday nights!

Lots of local nightspots have a lot going on and so much to choose from.

Check out www.zspotlight.com for local events and ideas for nightlife.  This website has local RDU night spots and events.  If anyone else has some local night life websites in their area and wanna share. Please leave a comment!

Thought I’d share some tips to help make a night on the town even better! Believe it or not.  Sometimes one of the best parts of the night is kicking back and getting ready to go out with your favorite people!

  1. Invite over your besties for a night on the town.  Keep it drama free.  If there’s girls you know that won’t get along, meet them at the club!
  2. Music is key- no sad mellow Radiohead or Nirvana here ladies.  Pump it up with some Rihanna, Lady Gaga and flo rida. I posted the song Im jamming too right now- “In the Ayer: Flo rida ft Will i am ” click the link in my post!
  3. Light cocktails and Lite bites: Come on we are Ladies here right?!? Nix the beast lite for some tastier concoctions.  Try Instead: pomegrant wine sprizter http://www.ehow.com/how_2169969_wine-spritzer.html Or my favorite Pink  lemonade cocktail: Easy on the wallet and the stomach

1 bottle of Pink champage

1 bottle of Pink lemonade

1 pint of vodka

Fill class with ice, pour 1/3 of each ingredient, garnish with lemon or lime and finish with a straw and mini umbrella!

4.  Everybody usually gathers in the kicthen before getting ready so get some easy appetizers to fill everyones tummy !

Veggies and Ranch

Spinch and Artichoke dip

Chips and Salsa (add a can of black beans and corn for color and taste)

5.  Collaborate make up!  More things to choose from the better right?  Your girlfriend could have an eye shawdow that works great with your shirt and you could have a lipstick that sets off her dress!

6. Put together the perfect outfit!   I suggest planning your outfit in advance to limit that last minute “I have nothing to wear” syndrome

Dressing to the nines in a sexy short dress and heels is fun when going out. However usually we feel our best when we are comfortable.  Which means we reach for a cute top and our hottest most  flattering jeans the majority of the time. 

 In my experience when you know you look good – you exude a confidece , a beauty that makes your inner self shine and therefore you automatically look better!  How much more fun have you had when you know you look AMAZING???

bevello has some bold yellow and green flowy chiffon blouses that look amazing with skinny jeans and some killer heels. You are sure to look sexy and confident in these attention getting colors!

Last but not least!

8.   Think fun- think safe!  Call a cab or zingo(www.callzingo.com) a sober driver that drives your car home for you.   An easy way to ruin a night is a DWI . When a cab is split with 3 or more girls that comes to about 5 bucks each way!

Go out with every intention of looking great and making amazing memories!

Anyone have some pics from their thursday night adventures?  Take a pic of you and your friends in bevello clothes and send them to me!

Mgillogly@bevello.com

and I’ll post them to our blog!

bve,
