Every Day Is Earth Day: Week 11

"We all moan and groan about the loss of the quality of life through the destruction of our ecology,
and yet every one of us, in our own little comfortable ways, contributes daily to that destruction.
It's time now to awaken in each one of us the respect and attention our beloved Mother deserves."
- Ed Asner, Actor

Are UV Nail Dryers Safe?

I don't usually get my nails done in a salon (I'm more of a D-I-Y type of girl), but when I do, I've always been a little paranoid about using the UV Nail Dryers.
I typically try to avoid using them because you never really know how much damage can actually be done.
Also, I would never use a tanning bed for my body (use a self-tanner!), so why would I use one on my hands?

I recently read an article in the March 2011 issue of Allure magazine on this topic.

A Tip for Tidy Toilets

"I grew up with six brothers.
That's how I learned to dance - waiting for the bathroom"
-Bob Hope

As much as I like to clean, cleaning toilet bowls is one of my least favorite chores.

Personally, I don't understand the people that spend a lot of time sitting on the toilet.
(Do you really want to finish your reading on a toilet bowl?!?
Finish your business and get outta there!)

Whether you spend a lot of time in the bathroom or pop in and pop out, everyone should have a clean toilet bowl.  You never know what might fall in there!

Here's a great tip to help keep your toilet bowls so fresh and so clean for a long long time.

10 Reasons To Exercise

We all know that exercise is good for you and can be beneficial in many ways.
Here's a quick and condensed list of reasons that will hopefully motivate you to get off your butt and work it out!

These are tips from Oprah's trainer Bob Greene in Oprah Magazine's January 2011 issue.

The only exercise some people get is 
jumping to conclusions, 
running down their friends, 
side-stepping responsibility, 
and pushing their luck!
