Reusuable bags for shopping has become pretty mainstream. Most grocery stores sell their own and places like Whole Foods gives a little refund for every bag you bring in. We use these great Chico Bags, which my husband got a few years ago on a trip to San Francisco. I love them because they are stuffed into a little pouch that is part of the bag. So it's easy to keep in your purse or glove compartment, and they're only $5! They've also have another line called the rePETe which is made from 99% recycled content such as plastic bottles.

I know I go through a lot of paper towels and have been wanting to come up with a way of using less. When I'm cleaning and wiping down everything, I always feel a little guilty about all the garbage that accumulates. So earlier this week, I went to ecoEmporium, a store that sells earth friendly products, and bought a pack of Skoy cloths. They are 100% biodegradable and is the equivalent of about 15 rolls of paper towels! It also dries very quickly, so it prevents bacteria from growing. It's the little things that get me excited, so I'm hoping this will aid in my quest to be a little less wasteful.

You may remember that I posted about getting my jewelry area organized by getting a new desk and other organizational items. Well, I've decided to set up studio space at my friend's shoe store, Eviva, in Decatur. It works out perfectly, since I love shoes and can now be around them all day. It'll actually also be nice to have some social interaction and get out of the house. I just set up the space, so I don't have pictures, but will post some soon. I'm also working on new pieces and gearing up for festival season, so stay tuned for some new items.
Have a great weekend!

It's been a while since I did a shoe lust post, so here's my latest installment from Paris Fashion week.

Now that I'm back from my week long vacation, I am catching up on the indie blogs and came across this Etsy shop. Jean Barberis is the owner of this shop and creates cabinets using vintage suitcases. How cool are these? And if you live in NYC, he will personally deliver and install it for you at no extra charge.

Nah, it'll still be June Shin, but it's official, I am now a married woman. After spending a week in New York, eating, walking, getting married, I'm back home in Atlanta with my husband. I'm slowly getting back into my groove and will share more pictures in the upcoming days. In the meantime, I direct you to my husband's blog on all the food related things we did on our trip: www.eatdrinkman.com.
