Wear The Same Dress Everyday for A Whole Year? Yes!

It's called the Uniform Project, started by a chic lil' lady from Brooklyn and has raised over $103,000 to help kids go to school and buy school uniforms. Basically she had 7 identical dresses, 1 for each day of the week, and wore them for a whole year, with some fabulous accessories of course! Amazing what you can do with 1 LBD and some creativity.

Customize Your Firefox with Personas Plugin

First off, if you're still using Internet Explorer... get with it! You probably have had to take your computer in for repair at least once in the last year, you use Norton or some other anti-virus software to scan for trojans and viruses regularly and your computer is still slow, or maybe you've even had to replace it recently .

One of the best and easiest ways to keep your computer healthy and running smoothly is to use an alternative browser such as Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome. I've been using Firefox for years now and have no complaints, but I did want to spruce it up a little so I found this fun (and safe) way to customize my Firefox interface using a neat-o plugin called Personas.

Once you've made the switch to Firefox you can have a pretty browser too.

1. Go to and download & install the FREE Personas Plugin for Firefox

2. Once it's installed, you can use the handy little icon in the lower left corner of your browser to click and select a new persona to 'wear'

3. Just rollover the different themes (there are literally thousands!) to try them on and click to set it as your default, or try your hand at making your own... one to match your blog perhaps?

Right now, my browser is wearing "Blue Floral  Abstract" dorky name, yes, but it looks cool.
