When you spring forward your clocks this weekend, make sure you are doing it with an eco-friendly timepiece by Sprout!  These watches come in a dozen different colors and sizes, and I think their fun and funky look is great for orGLAMic kids of all ages.  Made of corn-resin, bamboo, organic cotton and mineral crystal, and using mercury free batteries, these watches are orGLAMic every step of the way.  The case and buckle are actually 100% biodegradable – in fact, you can click here to read more about how eco-friendly these watches are.  To take a peek at the entire orGLAMic collection, all you have to do is click here.

I was surprised to find that I hadn’t posted about uber-orGLAMic jewelry line Sid Vintage yet, as it has been on my radar for quite some time now! But, with my birthday around the corner, I figured it was time to drop some not-so-subtle hints.  Venice, CA-based jewelry designer Nanci Bennett carefully scours flea markets and then repurposes her findings by hand into hip bracelets, necklaces and earrings, giving them a new life and breath.  I am always a fan of chunky baubles to compliment a simple ensemble, and the bracelet above is orGLAMic heaven to me.  Click here to browse all the fantastic collections.

Even kitchen sinks can be orGLAMic with products by Goodbye detergent! by their side.  The scouring pads made by this company are made of natural ingredients (corn cobs and peach pits, no less!) and don’t require detergent for general cleaning.  Just moisten these pliable, reusable sponges with water and use them to clean everything from metal cookware to glass and even peel vegetables!  The whimsical Spaghetti Scrub, pictured above, is made of corn core powder, cotton and polyester.  Click here to browse the entire line of orGLAMic cleaning products and here to find a store that carries them near you.

Accessories are paramount when designing an orGLAMic home.  I try to make sure that everything in my home is beautiful and functional, and this Double Bowl Feeder by Holden Design fits the bill.  Each feeder is made from a single-piece of FSC-certified plywood, and the sleek design is material efficient as well.  Available in walnut and cherry, these functional pet bowls can stay out to showcase your orGLAMic sense even when you have guests over.  Click here for details on the orGLAMic pet feeders and beds and to find online ordering info.

While the ladies dazzled at last night’s 82nd Annual Academy Awards, the men definitely stepped up to the plate as well (Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Bateman…must I go on?!)  Today’s Manly Monday post will have you looking Oscar-worthy and orGLAMic in a look by Simon Carter.  Many of the London-based designer’s beautiful tailored suits and tuxedos are made using EcoGir, a 100% recyclable fabric made of recycled PET bottles.  About 30 bottles go into the making of one of these suits, and whether you are hitting a red carpet or just a wedding, Simon Carter is sure to land you on the best-dressed list.  Click here to browse the orGLAMic men’s clothing collection.

CORRECTION: EcoGir and Simon Carter are separate companies that recently collaborated to create an orGLAMic tuxedo for Jason Mraz’s Grammy appearance.  The EcoGir line includes suits that are made from recycled fabric originally created from recycled PET (plastic) bottles and from 100% organic cotton or organic wool.  For more info on EcoGir click here.

With springtime quickly approaching (and a weekend jaunt to Palm Springs in my immediate future!) my sights are beginning to turn to airy, orGLAMic items that will take me through this year’s warmer months.  Krisa makes a beautiful pair of linen pants made of natural flax fiber that fit the bill.  While I picture myself flitting around Greece in a bikini looking just like the model pictured above (one can dream, right?) these pants are also available in black, armada, ash and plum, and would easily look as great worn with a slouchy sweater on a errand-filled weekend.  Click here to purchase your very own orGLAMic pair on Revolve Clothing or here to shop the entire collection, including dresses and tops made of organic jersey, bamboo, soy and silk.

As every woman knows, a quick, inexpensive way to spice up any look is with a swift change of nail polish.  butter LONDON helps make this transformation orGLAMic with their eco and health-conscious formulas.  The company’s 3 Free polishes are non-toxic and formaldehyde-, toulene-  and DBP (dibutyl phthalate)-free.  Available in 50 delightfully named colors, there is truly a shade for everyone.  Personally, I stick to basics (no surprise here!) – and love Tea With The Queen (a light pinky nude) for hands and Come To Bed Red (a deep, classic red) for toes.  Click here to find your very own orGLAMic favorite inspired by across the pond.
