2nd Segment

Permission not to splurge….

Fashion doesn’t always need to be expensive. In fact, fashion is at its best when you are styling high and low pieces. Here are some inexpensive items you can definitely get away with pairing successfully with the high. Often the third piece can be the hero inexpensive piece.

 

 

Thin Turtleneck

We want to use this piece to layer under dresses (great way tot extend your shoulder season frocks into the cooler months) or under jackets so thin pairs well with the inexpensive price point.

 

 

Structured bag

The structure of the bag elevates the look of the piece. Slouchy bags come in looking cheap so something that holds it shape will always be a hero. Pick in neutral colours to ensure longevity of seasons and trends.

 

 

Camel coat

Camel is the number one colour that can work high and low. Have the rich colour dictate the cost of the coat over the actual price point.

 

 

Neck scarf

For such a brief piece of fabric that barely shows a print can truly make huge impact. When have neck scarves not been in style? And because they always offer a great hit of chic pulled togetherness it’s worth the effort to tie one on.

 

 

Necklaces

Accessories that no one is going to touch is the perfect cheat to looking luxe.

When You Need to Eat Organic

Regular vs Organic

Organics is a $50 Billon industry. We are spending up to 60% more for what we believe is far healthier. I like to say: “your health is an investment, not an expense”

General reasons for buying Organics: in order to minimize the harmful effects of:

  • Pesticides
  • Fertilizers
  • Hormones
  • Antibiotics
  • Dyes
  • Solvents
  • Irradiation
  • GMO (potential, jury still out)

 

 

Environment: Organic farming is more sustainable for the environment. Much fewer pesticides are released into the environment. Some of those pesticides can taint local water sources or harm local aquatic wildlife. Studies also show that organic farms produce less waste and use less energy.

 

 

Taste: Many people (including myself) find organic foods taste better than conventional foods. A recent Nielson Poll revealed that 45% of persons who purchase organic products do so because “the food tastes better.”

 

 

WARNING: Not all organic is equal

100% Organic: Indicates the product contains 100 percent organic ingredients.

Organic: Indicates the product contains a minimum of 95 percent organic ingredients and up to 5 percent of ingredients may be nonorganic agricultural products.

Natural: Indicates the product likely doesn’t contain artificial ingredients or added color but the product may contain antibiotics, pesticides, or other similar chemicals. This is basically a bogus claim.

Canada: https://choosecanadaorganic.ca/organic101/

North America: https://www.usda.gov/topics/organic

You can buy conventional fruits and vegetables with thicker skins and outer layers, such as avocados, onions, and pineapples.  Reference the “Clean 15” by the EWG

 

Strawberries are one of the most susceptible fruits to bugs and pests, making them prime targets for high pesticide treatment.

BUY ORGANIC: 8.99/container (vs 6.99/container conventional)

 

Potatoes that are grown above ground are sprayed with pesticides, and the soil they’re grown in is treated with fungicide. By buying organic varieties, you avoid both these threats. In case you can’t find organic potatoes, try sweet potatoes; they are usually grown with less pesticides overall

BUY ORGANIC: 1.49/lb (vs .99/lb conventional)

 

Onions

When pierced, onions deploy a natural defense system that results in a harsh, sulfuric odor and pungent flavor. Insects tend to stay away, which means less of a need for pesticides

BUY CONVENTIONAL: .99/lb (vs 1.29/lb organic)

 

Peppers react to pesticides like a sponge, absorbing the chemicals through the skin. Because of this, you won’t be able to reduce chemical ingestion by washing or peeling them.

BUY ORGANIC: 4.99/lb (vs 1.99/lb)

 

Pineapple

The EWG found that 80% of all pineapples were completely free of pesticide residues. That isn’t surprising when you consider the pineapple’s impressive defense system: a spiny shell of armor that protects the precious, juicy fruit inside.

BUY CONVENTIONAL: 3.99/fruit (vs. 5.99/fruit)

 

Avocado

The avocado’s tough, fortifying skin protects the soft, creamy flesh on the inside. Thanks to this impressive natural defense system, the avocado ranks #1 as the “cleanest” fruit you can buy conventionally

BUY CONVENTIONAL: 1.15/fruit (vs. 1.75/fruit)

 

 

Leafy green veggies are doused in pesticides to ward off insects. Organic growers use methods like non-toxic repellents to keep these vegetables free of pests.

BUY ORGANIC: 3.50/100g (vs 1.50/100g)

 

 

Animal products like meat and dairy have high amounts of toxins because of “bioaccumulation”. This refers to the accumulation of larger amounts of hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics that are given to non-organic animals (not to mention their living conditions are far worse). Plus, we consume these so often. Non-organic animal products are also from animals fed a diet of genetically modified food. Not to mention, pasture-raised cows take up more room and they aren't fattened up with grains so the process costs a lot more.

BUY ORGANIC: ground beef 9.00/lb (vs 5.00/lb); milk 3.99/L (vs 1.99/L)

 

 

Fish grow in the ocean, where it's impossible to know what (if any) pesticides they've encountered, so there are no guidelines for certifying organic seafood (although it is not illegal to use the certification in some cases, there is little control)

BUY CONVENTIONAL: 7.00/lb (vs 13.00/lb)
