Book: Do It Gorgeously by Sophie Uliano

Just in time for the holidays...tons of creative D-I-Y gift ideas!

One of my favorite "going green" books is Sophie Uliano's Gorgeously Green. Beyond the book, her website is constantly updated with fresh resources and information to help every girl live fabulously on her green journey through life. And so when I heard she had released a new book, Do It Gorgeously, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy so I could tell everyone about it!

Let me just say, I have definitely not been let down...with every book Sophie releases, there is renewed interest in areas I hadn't thought about in awhile as well as new interest in areas I hadn't even considered. With this book, she brings us a virtual warehouse of concoctions to help you save green while going green. From do-it-yourself facial cleansers to how to up-cycle used clothing, this book is chocked full of creative ideas to green up your life! The following is a sample recipe excerpt from Do It Gorgeously:
