If you haven't noticed a theme with me with my last post on ReUseable bags, I'm tring to get the word out and using my blogg to change the world one person at a time though! I am writing this now because I still see people at work in the office and
espically at the gym useing regular water bottles that they just bought and then throw away.
It's a great idea for saving the planet and hey you never know when Washington DC will start taxing on plastic bottles! It's to get a head start.
A plus would be a BPA free bottle like the one I carry around
the office and gym, if you drink lots of water and do not want pollutants in your body. If you didn't know BPA is a chemical that company's use to keep plastics together and the gov is looking into the cause of childhood diseases as BPA comes up more in childrens blood systems. more then 85% of americans have BPA in our systems!! Places that sell BPA products are City Sports, GNC shop, Whole Foods, and online of course. check it out and save money at the same time. Being Green is COOL.

"Do you want a bag", is what the cashier asks me! "No", I reply I have my own. Starting Jan 1 2010 a new decade brought in a new law into Washington DC, a bag fee of five cents. Yes I said five cents, after a while that can add up, going to the market, the 7-11, the carry out even your local sports store yes thats right. The Law for bag fees is that any place that sells food has to charge a five cent fee, even if they are little snacks at the counter before you leave the store.
So Iam bringing you this article to you, because it's all about saving the environment especially the Anacostia River that's over polluted with plastic BAGS. So if you wanna get your fix on fashionable Reusable bags head over to your local Target, Safeway, Giant, or even you little boutiques, they may sell them as well. The first couple of weeks the local markets were giving away bags.
Gear it up boys and girls get a REusable bag.

with out a doubt the best cupcakes in DC is HELLO CUPCAKE. This spot offers a place to sit outside or inside to relax with a glass of milk or coffee. Located just south of Dupont Circle on Conn Ave. These fancy cupcakes are moist and yummy with every bite, the cream on the top is not that bland colored icing other places use. HELLO get the real deal. This is my favorite cupcake spot in DC. the others do not compare.

National Museum of African Art: exhibit featuring Yinka Shonibare
The Museum of African art has been there for years but I never step foot into this beautiful building until last sunday. The museum is connected underground with the National Asian art museum both look like little gate houses but there are stairs that lead you under the garden into large galleries and corridors with classrooms. This exhibit was a change from the normal art exhibits that usually come to DC. photography and ballet dancers adorn the open theathers. there is an adult only section if you want to see artistic sexual poses in Yinka's garbs which is wildly colorful. the figures are all posed and in act of what colonial whites would have looked like but with a twist of these colorful african garments. stare at the exhibts read into them. make you wonder if the world would have been backwards like he wanted us to think from the exhibit. hurry up this is only in town until March 7, 2010

2010 is here, and by it being so it's a so called new start for things "NEW". New friends, new activities, new places to eat, new places to check out, new routine! it's all about doing new things. I rang in the NEW year with friends at a small dinner party it was very social no loud music, no cover, no wild drinking. it was time for a change. I mean aim turning thirty this year for Christ sake. So I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and hope this new decade and new year bring you wealth and good health, all that good stuff. and you can count on this Blogg being back up since I was out of commission for a couple months! Happy New Year's everyone!!
