My birthday is coming up on Sept 19th.. the big 43, and of course you guys know, I have received more than my share of life changing gifts this year. I am beyond blessed with all of the happiness in my life. I have found true love and complete happiness with beautiful Aria. And of course, we are now anxiously awaiting the arrival of our son, this coming Nov. If that wasn’t enough, we also have adopted, not just one, but two happy dogs. Basil our little buffalo and now baby Louie the love bug. Louie joined the family last week and I think he is a keeper!
So, for my birthday, if you have a spare $10 bucks or so.. maybe you could give it to Charity Water. They are raising funds to buy a new water drilling rig which will be used in Africa. Once they have the new rig, they will be able to provided fresh water to over 40,000 plus people each and every year. Think about it… and thank you in advance. Hope to see everyone soon.
Ecorazzi enlisted (coco eco magazine founder) Anna Griffin to interview model and activist Lauren Bush at the Whole Foods Lifestyle store in West Hollywood.

It’s been a not-so-great couple of news weeks for rocker Sting. First, an interview with wife Trudie Styler revealed that the eco public couple were “hypocrites” (her word) over their huge carbon footprint. And now, Sting’s almost 20-year-old rainforest charity is under intense media scrutiny for its large intake and “paltry” (the NY Post’s word) output.
I’ll cop to owning more pairs of shoes than a person needs. But I think it’s fair to say that 95% of them — like most of my clothes — were either bought second hand or donated by people I know. (Having like-sized friends certainly has its benefits!) But for the most part, since I don’t dress up for work (or anything else, for that matter), I wear nothing but sandals. (And yes, I often wear them with socks like a German tourist. What are you gonna do about it?)
But I’m in good company, because supermodel Gisele Bündchen recently admitted to Germany’s Die Welt that she’s got more pairs of shoes than a person needs. (And I’ll bet she got most of them for free, like I did.) Though she says she’s never counted them, People magazine quotes her as saying she has “probably around 100”, adding that “it’s comparable to the way men love cars and watches.”
