Wicked Site: has tons of fashionable jewelry at prices that won't make you cringe. And a decent selection that is more expensive but looks like the kind of stuff you'd wear to the Oscars. (And I'm guessing it's much cheaper than the stuff that's actually worn to the oscars.) They also have lots of celebrity inspired jewelry. It's the best site for glamours jewelry that doesn't have to cut into your shoe budget.

Pictured jewelry clockwise:  Puglia Faux Pearl Dangle Drop Earrings about $21,Caressa's Heart Charm Necklace about $15,  Inspired by Twilight: Bella's Turquoise Cuff Bracelet about $20, Rialto's CZ Amethyst Cocktail Ring about $25.

Movement: The SOLD Project

An estimated 2 million children, the majority of them girls, are sexually exploited in the multi billion dollar commercial sex industry. – UNICEF
Child prostitution is a huge problem. The Sold Project is aiming to stop it before it begins. They're doing just that by raising money to keep kids from Northern Thailand in school, so that they don't have to travel to the cities for work, where they'll most likely end up in the sex business.  They're a small grassroots organization armed with statistics, a passionate crew, and a new film, The Sold Project Thailand. They haven't reached the size of one of my other favorite charities Invisible Children, but they're off to an amazing start, and I can tell they're going to be big. Change the world big.

Random Links to A Not-So-Random News Story

People are really backing up Phelps on this one. Maybe public opinion of marijuana is changing. Maybe people don't care because they're more concerned with the whole "Our Economy is in the Crapper" thing. Various Facebook groups and petitions have popped up in support of Phelps, urging people to boycott Kellogg. It seems like supporters may be having an impact. When you call Kellogg's customer service, you get this message"Thank you for calling the Kellogg Company. If you would like to share your comments regarding our relationship with Michael Phelps, please press one to speak to a representative. If you're calling about the recent peanut butter recall, please press two now. Otherwise, press three or stay on the line. Thank you." Are more people calling about Michael Phelps than the peanut butter recall?

It's going to be interesting to see how the situation plays out.
