Today is my third day checking out labels on things I wear,
items I use and goods I eat.
I have to say it's eye opening and sometimes even surprising.
For example, the Bath and Bodyworks liquid soap does not say
where it is made. It says it is not animal tested but, no
indication on origin.
Do you have any B&Bworks soap you can check for me ?
Maybe yours says where it is made...
I would like to know.
My make up is mostly Smashbox and some items are made in
the US and others are made in China. I wonder why ?
If you can make a an eyeshadow trio in the US why can't you make a blush ?
My silver accessories are from Mexico, Spain, Peru and Italy.
Another item I could not find a place of origin for
was the lint remover. But, I am pretty sure it was not made in Australia.
In my outfit I continue to have pieces from China.
Note that I have nothing against China.
It's just amazing how they have taken over producing
everything we use.
I drove to my office in a German car assembled in Mexico.
For breakfast had local grown coffee sweetened with Splenda
sugar substitute made in the US.
Once again had my Nabisco crackers made in Nicaragua and
my local made cottage cheese.
For lunch I will most likely have a vegetable soup made locally.
I am posting from a MAC computer assembled in China and
my watch is made in Switzerland.
Below are links from other bloggers who have also checked out their labels,
so check them out to see what they have found...

It was interesting how three of her items, all of which are recognized brands
did not have the origin information...
One thing I found striking was that her hand soap was from Guatemala!
Francis Joy of Mad Dress Game
I thought it was so cool that she had in one outfit stuff from Haiti, Turkey, Indonesia and China !
Other fellow bloggers will be posting about it, I will
give you heads up as they have.
I think it is interesting to see how the origins of items may differ depending
on where you are.
