Go Green posting XD

Melbourne has been so cold for the past few days and the news said that last week was the coldest april week in 56 years lolz...and where I stayed last week (my brother's house) was the coldest suburb in victoria hahaha...me n hubby had to use two layers of quilt to get warm -__-" it's not even winter yet..I see this as one of the global warming phenomenons...
It's a sad fact but the earth are decaying because humans are not very responsible in taking care of it.well, I've been trying to go green for quite a long time but sometimes my surroundings arent that supportive hehe XD.... I remember once my colleague teased me to sign up for a greenpeace membership because I commented on how he used a post-in-note to write something that is not so useful and gave him a quick 2 minutes lecture of how those post-it-note were made lolz :P

anyway, when we get our own house I will (and nothin hubby says will stop me) get that decomposer thing (you know, the bin thing to decompose your green garbage) even if we dont have a garden, maybe I can sell the composed products to my neighbours and make some money lolz...

aside from that... I've been trying to recall the method of doing a whole strand of pearl necklace. this isnt as simple as it looks because to make a good and strong whole necklace, I cant just put one pearl after another, I have to make a joint from the nylon thread to seperate each pearl but the joint have to be very tight and touching the pearl; to avoid loose pearl in the thread.and this particular part is so difficult to get right T-T I probably lost you by now hahaha...
I do and re-do it for about three times before getting it all good -__-""" I need to do this often or else I'll forget..
here's the finished result:




this one is south sea pearls so they are quite big.
Pearls are beautiful and while in some people opinion it might be destined for old lady and look too formal, I think the smaller sized ones are definetely good to wear for many occasions. Did I also mention that pearl is a green jewelry because they have low impact on environment? Cant wait until I get to see the farms end of this year!! yohoo, I think I'll go pearl-crazy XD....

And my other go green action hahaha...LUSH products.... the ocean salt (Lovin it!eventhough the salt can be abit rough for sensitive skin) and the eye cream. I quite like the eyecream, although the smell are not that nice. unlike the facial moisturizer, that's IMO only good for winter country, this one can safely be used for tropical country without getting too heavy for the skin. So it will come with me on my next trip to the hotter lands! I got the "honey I washed the kid" (HAHA...cute name) soap but I didnt take pic of it (It's sitting nicely in my shower at the moment)...



wellz, today's post is very 'green' hahaha.. I hope nobody minds. It's been a few good weeks...I hope it keeps on raining (Australia needs it!)

allright, thats all for now...stay safe, stay happy (and green) !!

wow, is it still lacking water down there? i remember before i left aust, the water restriction reached level 6 (which is the highest so far in brisbane unless if it got worse and they decide to make another level). crazyyy... and now i hear that they're slapping fines for high water users!

i'm up for going green, and have been trying to save the world one plastic bag at a time... and i've also been sorting the trash out properly (or trying to anyway)... but sorry, i still want my long hot showers and baths... hahahahaha... for that i'm thankful that i'm out of australia!
