What is on your Earth Day Agenda?

Normally a Wordless Wednesday would go here, but I'm a member of an amazing group of bloggers the Latina Fashion, Lifestyle and Beauty Bloggers and we have decided to collectively make today about Earth Day in some way, shape or form as a group as an effort to help draw attention to our first tweet chat scheduled for Wednesday April 20th from 4:00 p.m. PST/7:00 p.m. EST to 5:00 p.m. PST – 8 p.m. EST. The theme of our first Tweet Chat celebrates the group launch and focuses on “Earth Day,” with hash-tag #LLBlog. Participating group members will also post their Earth Day themed blogs in the morning to showcase the Latina Lifestyle blog content diversity!

While I am sure that with over 180 bloggers participating in this initiative, there will be tons of different ideas and perspectives on Earth Day, lets make sure we are all giving more back to Mother Earth than we are taking from her. Let's leave things nicer than we found them. The rules our parents taught us about visiting someone's house for the very first time, are not bad rules to apply to how you treat the earth while you are outdoors!

Ascending Butterfly likes a life in balance! Mind, Body and Soul are very important, they must be in balance for you to be happy. I don't beleive that taking time for yourself, your needs or some pampering is silly or selfish, time spent devoted to your beauty routines is very important to your overall wellbeing. The moment you walk out the door, you can almost tell the kind of day you are going to have. You should always put the best face you can out to the world it makes a tremendous difference! When you are taking extra care of yourself, you feel more energized and enthusiastic to face the day! And if you still want to show your skin some much needed pampering and TLC but want to keep it Earth Friendly, one of my first beauty brand besties, Origins, has a variety of offerings on tap and great ways to keep your skin at it's absolute best, while HELPING the planet!
