Tumblr Tuesday #6

So it appears that I survived Sandy! My poor parents have been without power for 24 hours now, and it will probably be quite some time until they get it back. My school never lost power and whatever damage done to trees and whatnot seems to have been cleared up already. I did have to go on a big detour to get to the doctor's office today. Reason number 829 why I could use a smartphone: so I don't panic when the roads are blocked and no detour signs are put up.

Here are some pictures from my two tumblrs in the past week. Links to both of them are on the sidebar of this blog. :)

...Baby One More Time

Based on the title of this post, I think it is safe to say that most of you will get what this costume is! That's right, Miss Britney Spears in her first music video, ...Baby One More Time.

If only I had bangs. I think that would have made it better. What do you think about my costume?

Happy Halloweekend!

don't mind the mess

Last night was the first night of my Halloweekend festivities. We held a party in my house, where I dressed up as a butterfly fairy princess (it was very last minute). Tonight there is a school-wide mixer. I can't wait for you all to see my costume! I'm keeping it a surprise until then.

Wishlist Wednesday: Ten Thousand Village

Did you know that October is Fair Trade Month? Well, it is. So in honor of this wonderful event, I am featuring Ten Thousand Villages as this weeks Wishlist Wednesday. Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that I have feature Ten Thousand Villages already, but I am doing it again anyway!
(p.s. sorry Wishlist Wednesday is making an appearance on a Thursday!)

Here is what Ten Thousand Villages has to say about themselves and their values:  
"Ten Thousand Villages is an exceptional source for unique handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor, art and sculpture, textiles, serveware and personal accessories representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. One of the world's largest fair trade organizations and a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), the company strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed."

New Glasses!

So a few weeks ago, I bought a new pair of glasses, and I finally got around to taking some photos of them this weekend!
(p.s. don't mind the mess of food in the background of the pictures)

First, here are my OLD GLASSES:
...which look like yuck compared to my new glasses.

Here are my NEW GLASSES:

I hope you like them! I personally couldn't be happier. I am so in love with them.

This Is What a Vegan Eats #2

Just a few things I picked up at the grocery store recently. I also bought some soy "yogurt" that I managed to eat all of before photographing (typical Melissa).

    1. Ener-G Egg Replacer (aka the staple of any vegan baking when using a non-vegan recipe)
    2. sunflower seeds
    3. Nature's Path organic pumpkin flax granola (the only problem I have with this granola is that the flax is not ground so you do not get all the health benefits from it)
    4. Craisins
    5. burrito size flour tortillas
    6. tortilla chips (a staple in my diet - I love making nachos with lots of beans and toppings)
    7. chocolate creme Newman-O's (guilty pleasure)
    8. salted peanuts
    9. cinnamon Teddy Grahams (another guilty pleasure)

If you're wondering why there's no Friday Finds post today, it's because I've moved on. Already? Why, yes. I felt that Wishlist Wednesday and Friday Finds were too similar, so I decided to cut Friday Finds.

 And here are the items I received:

Spin Pins from Goody

EBoost Daily Health Booster

Eye Kit from NYC

Pumpkin Cupcake Candle from Slatkin & Co.
