Valentine's Day is Around the Corner

Yikes, I've been so busy I haven't thought much about Valentine's Day this year. That's terrible for a person that is a sappy romantic at heart.


I have found that everything in your life can be done in a green way, even Valentine's Day (and your sex life). Eco friendly gifts include organic chocolates, organic flowers, fair trade coffees and teas, organic cotton, hemp, and peace silk lingerie (which is really hard to find by the way). Enamore in the UK has some really sexy sustainable lingerie but I haven't found much here in the US. Maybe by next Valentine's Day I'll be ready to be totally green.

Enamore Sustainably Gorgeous

Meijer Has Organics

I live in Michigan so we have Meijer grocery stores. I was going throug their weekly ads and discovered they have their own line of organic foods now. I'll have to check it out. They are USDA certified organic but that doesn't mean 100% organic unless it says so but it does have to be at least 70% organic. I'll check out the labels next time I go grocery shopping there.

New Green Articles Ready to Read

Simply Green: Easy Things You Can Do to Be Green and Save Money is ready to read at Associated Content and Don't Be Duped into Buying Green is up at Garden and Hearth.

I had to take a break from all the wedding stuff and write something different though I didn't stray far since it's still all about being green.

Back to the book now. I'm working on the topic of green wedding favors right now.

Fire Your Wedding Planner

Fire Your Wedding Planner is one of the very best guides for saving a lot of money on your wedding.

While not necessarily green, you can apply her advice to planning a green wedding.

Who doesn't want to save money, especially with today's struggling economy?

Stephi also has tons of free advice, a free newsletter and a classified site.

History of the Engagement Ring

I have a new article up on Wedding Planning for the Budget Bride, Circle of Love – The History of Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands. Soon I'll be adding articles about vintage wedding bands and the new green trend, wooden wedding rings.
