Anonymous asked: How did you get into dumpster diving? Do stores or cops ever hassle you? I saw you post eggs. Any foods you would avoid? I know some freegans say to avoid yogurts and cheese.

Dumpster Diving in NY state is Legal… UNLESS the dumpster has a lock on it… OR you can see a visible No-Trespassing sign.

I will grab eggs, yogurt, and cheese…. (as long as it is still cold? I see nothing wrong with it unless it is open or has a hole in it…  we are not desperate for food and I could easily buy groceries, so we have no reason to eat something that might make us sick…..) - I am VERY very picky about grabbing poultry, fish, beef or pork…. It has to be VERY frozen for me to grab it. As a vegetarian, I do not eat it… But I donate to needy families that trust my opinion …. So far, we have yet to donate anything that has made anyone sick *crosses fingers*….

Last Christmas - I put together 40 grocery bags of food that I deemed “good” and I put them up on Craigslist and delivered them like Santa….. I told everyone the food was from a dumpster and to make proper choices if something didn’t look or smell right….. Everyone was SO grateful and SO happy - So many single Moms, I swear….. You should see how many Hams the Grocery Stores toss in December…. hundreds (all based on Expiration Date).. And turkeys in November… it is insane… I am not scared of Expiration Dates at ALL (not even a little bit). I am scared of bacteria and warm meat, though…. That kind of stuff never makes it into my car.

Anonymous asked: Why do you hate answering emails? Is it a dealing with people type thing? Or just the massive number of emails you receive? Also on a side note are you more of a email/text type person or a i want to hear your voice and call you person?

Every single email needs to be genuine. Have you ever tried to write 400+ genuine emails … It is DIFFICULT - I sincerely appreciate each one (I DO) but I have a difficult time, answering … Think about it…. one email will take me 5-10 minutes to write?…. I am really bad with math …. But …. What is 5-10 minutes x 400 emails divided by 60 minutes? 

Too much to handle… that is the answer…..

GMAIL EMAIL…

OK! - The time has come… I am going to go through all 442 unread messages in my Inbox Right NOW. If you have been waiting for a reply, I will try to get back to you asap…

My Inbox frightens me sometimes…. I haven’t written anyone back since I left for DC … Ha. It’s been over two weeks.

Anonymous asked: Not that I'm defending these companies but most companies are prevented from donating certain foods. I know at wal mart we through a lot away from produce. We can't donate that stuff but for whatever reason we can donate the bread. But it's understandable not to donate mainly because they fear a lawsuit.

I know - BUT there is this awesome law that exists …. The Clinton Administration signed into Office…… It *saves* individual donors and companies from lawsuits - It is called the Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act. http://www.foodtodonate.com/Fdcmain/LegalLiabilities.aspx

Which is why I get SO confused that more companies do not donate produce…… I KNOW that most companies donate bread (pretty much all the dumpsters….. Donate snack food and LOADS of bread….) But the GOOD stuff… the produce, the veggies, the fruit, the nutrients? All of that stuff gets tossed out. Food shelters that feed the homeless…. would KILL for that kind of fresh stuff to feed their local homeless. I just don’t understand it….

Such a lovely gift in the mail today! #ElegantTrends on Facebook sent me some homemade jewelry! So cute!

mymoose76213 asked: I have to say that all the photos i have seen of you both your early work and your most recent i think the older you get the more beautiful you get. You look more and more confident and more classy with every shoot. Your beautiful inside and out.

Thank you! :  ) I still feel pretty rockin …. Such a great compliment. 

lustfullivvie asked: Where do you go dumpster diving?

I love the mystery of a great dumpster and I will jump into just about any dumpster I find (as long as the dumpster isn’t locked and there isn’t a trespassing sign……. I’ve found all kinds of neat things over the past two years… Ulta tosses makeup, Big Lots tosses just about everything from Furniture to Olive Oil, Bed, Bath, And Beyond has given us some gorgeous dish ware and wine glasses, PetSmart is great for dog leashes and returned pet food …) But the dumpsters that yield the most human-food are: Trader Joes, Aldi’s, and Brueggars Bagels … Also, there is a local bakery in Rochester that tosses out amazing day-old bread every night (love that place!)

branbranblog asked: Hey there gorgeous! My boyfriend turned me on to you. And now I think I look at your Tumblr more than he does. lol Your the only person I follow on here. I tell him you are my 1 girl crush! After reading your "musings & bewbs", I'm even more fascinated by your inner beauty & I love the way you write. It's so witty; I have to give you major props for the pussy pics you sent the perv asking for up close pics of yours. ;) Sorry for the book I just wrote, just wanted to say you are fabulous!! 😘

You are SO cute… :  ) I love it when the ladies follow me… :  ) Hope to meet you someday, pretty lady! :  )  0x0x0

mymoose76213 asked: How did you get momdog? Im guessing a rescue. I have 2 rescues my self a shepherd mix and a beagle. That i haveactually stolen because he was in a bad situation. Rescues are the best. They know they have been saved.

Rescues can be difficult but they are well worth it - I adopted Mom from a kill-shelter in Georgetown TX….. Mom had a great demeanor at the shelter - But, once we got home? Yeah - She was a difficult and badly behaved (she even pooped on my pillow once). Her socialization issues were borderline dangerous at times (mostly towards other dogs…) - But three years later? She barely resembles the dog that brought home… She is the dog that EVERYONE wants…… Well behaved, she knows what i expect from her, she listens *intently*, she can read my body language and I won’t even have to speak to her - She can charm crowds with her tricks, she can walk off leash without issue, she is great with other dogs and even has a friends now….

Rescues are the BEST!

darklordlestat asked: how do you keep yourself grounded?

Momdog keeps me grounded… She is the only thing that keeps me from floating away some days…. With that said, I think I am going to put on her rain coat and take her for a walk before it pours outside again…

Anonymous asked: How is your rash? did you take care of it yet?

Ha - You guys really care about that, huh? - Nope. I didn’t get it looked at (yeah, I know, I didn’t deal with it properly….. but whatever) - BUT it IS going away and it doesn’t itch anymore. I think that huge red welt on my back is going to leave a scar…. But other than that, I feel fine….

mymoose76213 asked: Love it when you take pics of you in your own environment at home. Would love to see the chicken coup and you in the garden and hopefully this summer your community garden out front. Just see Jess being Jess.

It is just difficult because when I am running around my apartment…. Jess being Jess? I don’t have a camera around to take photos of myself…. Nor do I have someone to take photos of me… Ha. 

Anonymous asked: So London I was wondering how we could send you presents. Nothing in return just looking for a way to spoil you. I don't have much I am a college student but your so fabulous that I just want to spoil you like a goddess

Sure thing - I always have my Amazon Wishlist up: http://amzn.com/w/3J0PHHNE714F5 - I add to it now and then, whenever I think of something that I could use (gardening equipment, camping gear, cute clothes…) - I supposed, since it is a day before the Ebay sale - If you buy anything in the next 24 hours… I could send you a free signed 8x10 print in the mail as a Thank You…. But after tomorrow… The remaining prints will go in the sale. If you do buy anything, no matter how small … Email me: bluebeetle3@gmail.com so I can hook you up! :  )
