What Else Can I Say?
I'm a Fan of Domino Magazine (live stylishly green!)
Eat Five Times a Day and Never Gain a Pound!

To answer the questions that I get: Yes, I live on the GI Plan, yes, I am a size 8 (or a size 6 on a good day), yes, I make my own cleaning products and yes, I am a Freecycle dot org devotee'.

I can list about 10 things in my house that aren't being reused and were purchased new (not clothing items). There are only two pieces of furniture in my living room that were bought new, my big, cushy, raspberry sofa and my crayon-colored, swirly-whirly chaise sofa. My home is kitschy, campy, retro, fun, and very decidedly....ME. Everything I own has a story to tell. And I love to listen to the stories.
So yes, I do live by this. And I love it!
