Happy 40th Earth Day, consider going vegetarian!

"If there was a twenty-four hour clock covering the span of time from the time of the planet Earth's creation to our present time, humans would only occupy the last two seconds on that clock." I can't remember where I re-read that quote recently or who it's originally attributed to, but that quote / fact perfectly illustrates that we need Earth more than Earth needs us.

Earth Day was created April 22nd, 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson to create awareness of the amount of toxins that factories were releasing into the air, rivers, and streams without any regulations. Shortly thereafter President Nixon and Congress established the Environmental Protection Agency. Having a day every year designated as Earth Day (recognized on April 22nd) has increased awareness about what big corporations do that affects the environment, as well as what every single person does on a daily basis that effects the environment and what can be done to lessen our carbon footprint.

This morning, while driving to work, there was a pretty good rain coming down (and even some hail on April 22nd in Las Vegas!!) and it looks like there's a good chance of rain for the rest of the day. It's been raining quite a bit these first few months of 2010 here in Vegas, with probably almost twice as much rainfall as we normally get in an entire year. Anyone who has been out to Lake Mead in the past two years can see how low the water level is out there, as much of the West has been in a drought for years. What needs to happen for the West to get out of this drought isn't just the good rain we've been having (although as long as this rain isn't causing flood conditions, it isn't hurting), but the mountain regions need to get more snow which becomes water that flows into the surrounding lakes and rivers.

And while Vegas has been getting unusual amounts of rain in these early months of 2010, across the world, there seems to be an increasing amount of earth calamities such as the terrible earthquake in Haiti (and elsewhere) and the volcano in Iceland. This just further illustrates the fact that the planet Earth isn't a static object and its terrain has been changing since its birth.

While we can't do anything to prevent earthquakes or volcanoes from happening, there are things we can do individually on a daily basis to insure that we don't accelerate Earth's ability to sustain life for the human race and the other life forms on this planet. Supporting companies that seek to find alternative, greener energy sources is a great ideal worth striving for, as is recycling and consuming less (both in the food and other products sense) - the adage "less is more" is a good doctrine to embrace in this regard. Carpooling, walking, bicycling, living close to where you work, whenever possible, are also great things a person can do to make our air quality less thick with pollutants.

The single biggest thing a person could do on a daily basis to make Mother Earth a richer, more qualitative place for more people, other life forms, and the terrain itself, is to consider becoming a vegetarian (or better yet a vegan) - even just making more of your meals vegetarian would help. Animal farming has much more adverse effects (greater contributer to global warming, wasteful use of water resources, and increased pollution) on the environment than does plant farming and land devoted to agriculture feeds more people then land devoted to raising livestock. "Vegetarianism takes care of so many things in one shot: ecology, famine, cruelty." - Sir Paul McCartney (frontman of Wings and a little known band called The Beatles).

I'm going to relate a little here, on this fortieth anniversary of Earth Day, how I became a vegan twenty years ago on the twentieth anniversary of Earth Day, not to toot my own horn, but rather to illustrate how a once anti-vegetarian such a myself (when I was a meat eater, I used to get mad when lettuce and tomatoes were on my burger!) became a vegan. I don't usually get on a soapbox about this topic unless others ask me about vegetarianism / veganism so as not to offend loved ones / friends who don't share my beliefs, but I just thought that what better day than the 40th anniversary of Earth Day to share with others the joys of veganism and maybe even inspire others to do the same.

Before totally committing to becoming a vegan (a vegan is a vegetarian who also doesn't consume any dairy, eggs, or cheese) back in 1990, I'd tried being a vegetarian a couple of years earlier after reading The Jungle, Upton Sinclair's 1906 expose on the meat-packing industry and the conditions of the wage slave immigrants that worked in that industry and going out with a gal who was a vegetarian. Well this vegetarian gal didn't seem too interested in helping me transition to becoming a vegetarian (I think she thought I was just trying to impress her and truthfully probably wasn't as interested in me on almost any level) and I didn't read up on my own how to go about totally changing my eating habits.

As the twentieth anniversary of Earth Day approached in 1990, there were more and more magazines / articles on what a meat based diet does to the environment and I read up on this quite a bit and as I was going through an early mid-life crisis (I was 28 years old and wouldn't own my wonderful comic store for another five years at that point, nor did I have any real idea of where my life was going) I wanted to affect a change in my life in some capacity. So now equipped with information about how being a vegetarian could actually change the world (or a small segment of it - one step at a time) I decided I was going to not be a slave to my meat craving palate and commit to making this lifestyle / eating change. A somewhat humorous aside: when I first became a vegetarian, my long time friend Joel (who was also my roommate at the time) asked me why I didn't just go the vegan route instead of just being a vegan, and as I had already read some of why being a vegan is even more environmentally helpful (the dairy and egg industry with their factory farms and the horrid conditions they subject animals to) I took his "dare" and went from meat eater to vegan almost overnight (I was maybe a vegetarian for a couple of weeks before becoming a vegan). The humorous part of that is that Joel is in the group of people who think vegetarians / vegans are just wack jobs and I'm sure that even today, he thinks I'm just being a vegan as some kind of "stubborn, trying to prove something to someone, holier than thou" thang.

Yes, I was / am trying to prove something by being a vegan and that is, if I can do so for twenty years now after being a meat eater for 28 years, well anyone can do the same and not have a poorer eating quality of life and not have health deficiencies as a result. I know that I have inspired some people / friends to become vegetarians / vegans and I think I've largely done this through example, not beating them over the head with why they should become vegetarian / vegan because no one likes being preached to.

When I first became a vegan and would go out to eat and upon getting a dish, that I requested to have no dairy or cheese, arrive with dairy ingredients, I would go into a crazy scene that I know embarrassed people I was with (just as I did in my former life as a meat eater when I got vegetables when I requested none) as I was a dumb not so young angry white guy. It took me several years to get over my dumb angry side, but I've mostly come to the conclusion that being angry and causing a scene in front of your friends / loved ones is counterproductive to why I became a vegan in the first place and doesn't endear you to others wanting to be around you. Now, when I go out to eat, I still request my food not to have dairy or cheese, but on the rare times it comes back with said items I'll just eat around them or if I find out that a dish has ingredients in it that aren't vegan, I won't have that dish again. I could just say that I'm allergic to dairy, but I think that's cheating and do try to tell the people at the restaurant that it's because I'm a vegan (to hopefully start an awareness where little exists without going on at length about it unless they ask me for more details). Actually, even when I first became a vegan back in 1990, it was a lot easier than I imagine being a vegan before 1970 must have been, and it's a looooot easier today, with more and more people understanding why people choose to be a vegetarian or vegan.

So in the next couple of days or come this weekend, treat yourself by going out to the Las Vegas Wetlands Park (7050 Wetlands Park Lane, off of Boulder Highway and Tropicana), one of Las Vegas' best kept secrets (why?) or the Springs Preserve over in the Northwest side of town, if you can't make it to Mt. Charleston, Red Rock or Valley of Fire, to enjoy some of Earth's marvels in our neck of the desert and bring a yummy vegan lunch with items such as: Boca veggie burgers, smart dogs, tofurkey lunch slices and sausages (seriously most people who try these faux meat substitutes are really surprised how good they are and how much they taste like the "real" thing - and these are eaten by vegans such as myself for their protein and because I did like the texture of meat), and or colorful vegetables (raw or stir fried alone or with tofu) and fruits. Alternately, one could just point their car to any desert area surrounding the Las Vegas Valley, take a hike, and see lots of plants erupting from the ground from all of the marvelous rain we've been getting!

Some local restaurants where one will find great vegetarian / vegan dishes are: Longlife Veggie (over on Flamingo and Sandhill), Komol (vegetarian Thai specialties over in the Commercial Center), Ghandi's (great Indian food off of Paradise and Flamingo), Dong Ting Spring (great Chinese restaurant with many vegan choices in Chinatown off of Spring Mountain), and the Whole Foods Market over in Town Square off of Las Vegas Blvd. has a vegan bar and LOTS of vegetarian / vegan choices (and the price is a lot lower then the food they sell in the market part of their stores. Sunflower and Fresh & Easy are two good grocery stores for vegetarian / vegan foods at not high prices.

This public service blog entry has been brought to you by tree hugger and comic book lover (is that a dichotomy?), Ralph, on behalf of Mother Earth, and wants to thank everyone who read this entry and for even entertaining the thought of making more of your eating choices vegetarian / vegan (your body, our planet, and its future generations will thank you also). Just as Earth has survived for millions of years without us in the past, so too can it survive without us in the future unless everyone remembers that everything is interconnected and our choices effect not only us, but where we live and will live in the future.

And to tie this all into comics, all of the excellent Paul Chadwick Concrete graphic novels (most of which have environmental themes) will be on sale for 50% off at Alternate Reality Comics until Monday, April 26th in celebration of the Earth Day turning 40!

On this topic, I just ordered a Vitamix blender as a sort of present for myself and Camila (since she likes Avocado smoothies so much). It can be used to make all sorts of cool vegan things, and it seems like a lot of raw-foodies swear by it, so I'll let you know how it goes (and bring you something if it turns out tasty).

Ralph Mathieu said...

How do I spell yum? Avocado smoothie! Have a great blender time, Evan!

Hey Ralph, I just spent about 40 minutes reading some of you blog posts.

I must say that I am very impressed with all the work that you put into this blog site. I appreciate your efforts to put something like out on such a regular basis.

I will check your blog regularly from now on. It was cool to see that I had a tad bit of influence on a post you wrote (you mentioned that you recently saw Apocolypse Now..!)

I am so glad to have found your store recently and really happy to have rekindled my love for comics...now stronger than ever. I am also glad that you take time to talk with me...I think your a class act.

Be well, see you sat at harvey pekar!

Paul

Ralph Mathieu said...

Thanks for the feedback, Paul! It probably took you 40 minutes just to read my entry from yesterday (not because you're a slow reader, but because I went on and on - grin). I also appreciate your patronage and conversations here at the store.

I write this blog to make my website less static, so that people who don't already come to my store, but found my site when they look up Vegas comic stores, can get a sense of my store, and of course to hopefully turn people on to great comics and graphic novels that might have gotten overlooked. And doing this blog helps keep me out of the gutters of the internet (grin)!

Camila said...

evan, it is not a present if I have to pay for it

:P

Camila said...

I didn't know you went vegan on earth day!

nice entry :D

Ralph Mathieu said...

Thanks, Camila.

Robb said...

Those Vegans....Well I guess they are alright in my book!

It is hard to believe that anything [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]shoe for worked[/URL][/B] so inherently ugly as the MBT shoe could ever catch on [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] with either the younger generation or the fitness fanatics but it has. [B]MBT shoes[/B] The shoes or I suppose they should be called trainers have thick curved soles and wide straps across the front. Currently [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] the are available in over 20 countries and have sold more than a million pairs a year. Considering that they have a price tag of around $200 it is even [B]MBT shoes[/B] more remarkable.

MBT shoes, which stand for Masai [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] Barefoot Technology were invented by Karl Muller a Swiss engineer. He [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] suffered back and knee problems but on a trip to Korea he noticed [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] that after walking barefoot through paddy fields the symptoms were relieved. With further [U]MBT[/U] research he discovered that the Masai tribesmen from Kenya did not suffer back problems [B]mbt sandals[/B] and had perfect posture. Putting these two facts together he decided that [U]mbt shoes review[/U] the answer was because they were walking on soft surfaces [U]mbt sneakers[/U] which yielded as they trod on them. This [U]mbt shoes review[/U] was unlike in Europe and America where we tend to walk on firm surfaces such as sidewalks.

The first MBT was manufactured in 1996 and soon [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] became popular on continental Europe. Since then many celebrities have [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] been seen sporting MBTs. The concept basically is that the [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] curved sole creates instability as you walk, which [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] mimics the effect of walking barefoot. To counteract this the foot uses muscle to counter this [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]MBT shoes[/URL][/B] and creates a natural body training effect.


As to the question of whether they [B]mbt sneakers[/B] are worth the money I suppose this has to be a personal judgement. If [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] you spend long periods of time on your feet then you may [U]mbt sneakers[/U] benefit from them. However, if you are someone [U]shoe for worked[/U] who just goes for gentle walks to keep fit then perhaps a [U]footwear etc[/U] good pair of conventional trainers at [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] half the price will be fine.

If you're interested in improving your health, it [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes clearance[/URL][/B] can be beneficial to start from the ground up. Let's talk about your footwear. How does [B]MBT[/B] yours rank? Some so-called fitness shoes merely look great, but don't really provide [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] any actual health benefits. Other shoes actually make a [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] legitimate difference. If you want footwear that truly helps, MBT shoes are the first [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] step toward a healthier you.

What does MBT stand for? Good question. The [B]mbt discount shoes[/B] answer: Masai Barefoot Technology. They're designed to [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] simulate walking barefoot, which helped our ancestors to walk [U]mbt shoes review[/U] healthier than we do. Modern humans cram their feet into all kinds [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] of crazy, uncomfortable shoes, and we walk on [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] unnatural surfaces. MBT returns our feet to their natural, healthier [U]mbt sandals[/U] environment.

MBT shoes actually trigger and enforce the [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] tiny muscles that cause our bodies to naturally absorb [U]MBT shoes[/U] shock. The patented construction of the MBT soles features a [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] unique sensor that causes a simulation of being on uneven [U]mbt sneakers[/U] ground. It causes an instability that causes the body [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes best prices[/URL][/B] to react with slight movements to compensate for the instability. Thus, a "rolling" process [B]mbt sneakers[/B] begins. This active, natural balancing act causes our bodies to automatically [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] exercise. As a result, muscles are strengthened and toned and posture is improved. Also, we experience less joint stress and back [U]mbt sandals[/U] pain. Clearly, it's quite a workout, and the benefits are vast.


The shoes do not resemble any [B]mbt sandals[/B] other footwear on the market today. Many people are [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] surprised when they discover that these "health shoes" are actually [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] esthetically pleasing, as well. [U]mbt shoes review[/U] The brand offers trendy [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] mary janes, chukka boots, trainers, clogs, sandals, oxfords, slides, fashion boots, mules and more.



Though it unquestionably sounds a bit unnerving to attempt [B]mbt shoes review[/B] to learn to walk in these shoes, it's a quick process [B]MBT[/B] to master, and the benefits are well worth it. If you want to try [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] the experience before rushing to buy a pair, try this [U][B]mbt shoes cheap[/U][/B] easy experiment: Get outside and walk barefoot on a soft, uneven surface. Make [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] sure it's natural ground. Sand works great for this purpose. Notice how [B]footwear etc[/B] your body automatically compensates [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] on its own to maintain proper balance on the unstable [U][B]mbt shoes cheap[/U][/B] surface. Feel your muscles working differently than they do when you usually walk on man-made ground. That's your body forcing you to keep its natural [B]buy mbt shoes[/B] balance. Do you feel your muscles are stimulated more [B]MBT shoes[/B] than usual?


Now you see why keeping a natural balance is crucial toward maintaining [B]mbt sneakers[/B] a healthier you. If you're making your health a priority, then doesn't it make [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] sense to choose footwear that not only increases your fitness level, but also [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] supports improved overall health? Now that you understand what all the [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] hype is about, perhaps it's time to try the MBT experience. Your body will thank [B]MBT[/B] you.

Heaven's Rage is the first novel by Tiffany [B]authentic tiffany jewelry monthly promotion[/B] Craig Brown, a former corporate communications expert and also former managing editor of the Natomas Journal [U][B]tiffany company jewelry[/U][/B] established in the Sacramento area.


Upon finishing up with the initial crime scene portion, Heaven's Rage is then split up into [U]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U] four main sections detailing each horrendous relationship Richard Tate had [U][B]replica tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] with the women in his life. We learn that Tate (appropriately nicknamed Dick by the way) is a disturbed man [U][B]tiffany jewelry boxes[/U][/B] with severe issues stemming from his childhood and just like Detective Buchanan, we are appalled by [B]tiffany jewelry boxes[/B] Tate and of the way he treats each woman. I found myself feeling genuinely happy [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany uk[/URL][/B] that someone murdered him for the novel's sake, and became emotional in sympathizing with each suspect!

The flow of the novel is superb because it's [U][B]3tiffany & co jewellery[/U][/B] got the "I-can't-put-it-down!" quality, with perfect transitions and breaks in [U]tiffany jewelry boxes[/U] all the right spots. As a reader, the pleasure and value of Heaven's Rage is being able to identify with each of Tate's "victims", and we find [B]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/B] that we love to hate Richard "Dick" Tate along with trying to identify the murderer.

Being an avid murder mystery reader, I believe Heaven's Rage may [U][B]fake tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] have been more impacting had there been more concrete clues scattered throughout the novel in regards to determining the murderer's identity. The largest draw and allure of crime and mystery novels is being able to apply [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany bracelets[/URL][/B] the author's clues to solving the murderer's identity before it is revealed to us. Although the murderer's identity is indeed surprising, Heaven's Rage does not provide readers with [U]cheap tiffany and co jewelry[/U] enough clues to solve the mystery on their own.

I personally enjoyed Heaven's Rage because of my familiarity [U][B]tiffany jewelry store[/U][/B] with the military lifestyle (being a military brat myself) and having lived in the locations featured in the novel including Colorado Springs, San Diego, and Coronado. On the other hand, you won't need to be familiar with the above attributes to enjoy [B]cheap tiffany and co jewelry[/B] Heaven's Rage and better yet, it will appeal to all genres of readers! Heaven's Rage is evidence that Tiffany Craig Brown has amazing talent [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany jewelry[/URL][/B] hands-down, and as a reader you won't be disappointed! No matter what your taste, you'll gain something from Heaven's Rage whether it be satisfaction from revenge or even being able to relate to nasty divorce and custody battles, among many other real-life experiences this novel [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] brings to light.

Now 09 Christmas is just around the corner [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany & co[/URL][/B] and people are all busy buying presents for their families and friends. Then [U]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U] what kind of presents should we buy? Many of us may [B]tiffany jewellery uk[/B] choose jewelry, for their elegance and quality. And [U][B]3tiffany & co jewellery[/U][/B] what's more, jewelry has very high preserve value. However, there are [B]replica tiffany jewelry[/B] so many brands of jewelry and which has the highest reserve value? The following [B]discount tiffany jewelry[/B] are the top 5 pieces of jewelry with high reserve value.


The fourth one is the Harry Winston [B]replica tiffany jewelry[/B] earrings of Diamond de Neige. The earrings were inspired by snowflakes [U]cheap tiffany and co jewelry[/U] and decorated by diamonds. When shining in the light, the earrings [U][B]discount tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] would remind you of the snow flying in winter. And also, the [U][B]fake tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] dissymmetric two earrings add more elegance to [U]3tiffany & co jewellery[/U] themselves.


Many people may know the leopard Cartier, which was the [B]3tiffany & co jewellery[/B] symbol of Duchess Windsor. During that time, Duke of Windsor, in order to [U][B]discount tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] show his love for his wife, asked Cartier & Co. to design some special kind of jewelry for his wife. And [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany london[/URL][/B] Cartier designed a brooch for Duchess Windsor which was leopard-shaped. This [B]tiffany jewelry store[/B] was the first time Cartier designed some jewelry [U][B]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] according to some kind of animals. And later, the leopard became [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany engagement rings[/URL][/B] Duchess Windsor's symbol and this series of jewelry became the masterpieces [U]authentic tiffany jewelry[/U] in Cartier history.

The first one is Ribbons Tiffany which was designed by [B]cheap tiffany and co jewelry[/B] the famous designer Jean Schlumberger. The diamond in the middle weighs 128.54 carat. It was engraved [U][B]knockoff tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] from a huge yellow diamonds, weighing 287.42 carat, which means half of the [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany charms[/URL][/B] original diamond was discarded. What's more, the diamond of Ribbon Tiffany has 82 facets of cut while the [B][URL=http://www.pandorajewellery.uk.com]pandora uk[/URL][/B] traditional Tiffany diamonds only have 58 facets.

When we buy something, we are always [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora bangles[/URL][/B] thinking that it had better never become devaluated. The one piece that never loses [U][B]tiffany necklaces[/U][/B] its value is always what people want most. Sometimes, the one [B]pandora jewellery[/B] piece would raise its price [U][B]tiffany charms[/U][/B] with the rise of money. Here is recommended the pieces that [B]pandora[/B] would always be treasured - Tiffany. The watches, bags, bracelets, necklaces. There will always be a classical piece in all the categories [U]pandora bracelets[/U] of Tiffany.

First comes to the tank watches which [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany necklaces[/URL][/B] are the favorite of a lot of people around the world. Of course, just like other [B]tiffany[/B] kinds of watches, Tiffany watches have both man and woman [U][B]pandora jewellery[/U][/B] style. No matter what kind of style [U]tiffany co[/U] or color it is, the tank watch always has its classical features. The tank watch is called one [U][B]pandora bracelet[/U][/B] of the very important objects in the world.

The watches have the [B]pandora bracelets[/B] unique shape and "favored by all" watch bands. The mixture shape of geometry [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany pendants[/URL][/B] and art gives the tank watch its lasting value. Women with the [U]tiffany necklaces[/U] watches look more professional and modern [U]tiffany[/U] while men with the watch seem more [U]pandora necklaces[/U] approachable.

Also, there is the famous bags which are one [U][B]tiffany pendants[/U][/B] of those things that women want to put into their closets. Although [U][B]pandora bracelets[/U][/B] as time goes on, every year each brand will have its display of new [B]tiffany bracelets[/B] arrivals, the bags are always put at the [B]pandora bangles[/B] most attractive places. Not only because of its nice style but also because of [U]tiffany pendants[/U] its functional usage, the special bag becomes one of the classics.

As y'all might have noticed, I will do whatever it takes to [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] weed out the most popular and chic jewelry around, even it takes traveling to [U][B]tiffany bracelets[/U][/B] very warm, beautiful areas like the island of Siesta Key in Florida. In fact, I'm even staying an extra few days here [U]pandora[/U] just to make sure that I absorb as much information and style as humanly [B]tiffany charms[/B] possible (either that or I'm simply not interested in journeying back to the cold tundra that is New York City). Either way, this is the best way for me to [B]pandora beads[/B] report back to you all the excellent styles that are pervading the fashion scene for the [U]tiffany co][/U] spring and summer of 2009!

If any of you saw the 2008 romantic comedy, Fool's [U][B]pandora bracelets[/U][/B] Gold, I'm certain you found yourself frantically Googling Kate Hudson's Palm [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] Tree Necklace to find out where you could get one just like it. The palm tree necklace was popular last year, and is still flying [B]pandora beads[/B] off the shelves today. There truly is something appealing about this shining sterling silver and cubic zirconia necklace with its intricate palm tree design. Of course, we're all aware that [B]tiffany rings[/B] the palm tree necklace that Kate wears in the movie is the real Tiffany & Co. version, which is made of diamonds, but unless you [U][B]tiffany london[/U][/B] are also a multi-millionaire like Kate, you probably will also stick to the inspired [U]tiffany][/U] version.

On top of various forms of palm tree jewelry, I have [U]pandora jewellery[/U] found a bevvy of starfish, seahorse, and turquoise and coral-colored jewelry in the many boutiques and shops that Siesta [U]tiffany jewellery][/U] Key boasts. Look for two-tone starfish jewelry as a big hit this spring and summer, as well [U][B]pandora uk[/U][/B] as the Tiffany Inspired Anchor Necklaces, which is another fan-favorite. It also incorporates a [B]pandora jewellery[/B] sterling silver and cubic zirconia design that is nautical and airy for the [B]tiffany pendants[/B] warmer weather.
