Gorgeous blooms: a flower timelapse

Flowers are absolutely amazing. They are one of the most beautiful things in the world and one of the best gifts from the Earth to us. I am in awe every time I watch this video, I can almost smell the flowers as they open up. I’m so glad I caught Photojojo’s tweet about it [...]

Midnight Sun

This may be the most beautiful video I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to believe such wonders really exist in this world of ours. Even though I’ve watched this short film a few times now, each time it doesn’t fail to amaze me and literally take my breath away. It looks as though it’s about time [...]

Sitting in nature, literally

I first saw these chairs on tumblr, but was so bummed when I couldn’t find the original source. Luckily, Desire to Inspire recently featured them as one of their “Blog favourites of the week” via Design Milk. These chairs are designed by Andrea Magnani, Giovanni Delvecchio, and Elisabetta Amatori and have been photographed by Andrea [...]

Make the world a better place with Pure Citizen

I was pleasantly surprised to see so many votes for eco-finds/products in the poll. Well, have I got the site for you! Pure Citizen is full of eco-finds/products all wrapped up in a beautiful package. I found out about them from Vegansaurus and have been hooked since! I was so excited when Pure Citizen accepted [...]

Life tip #15: Respect

Every time I write, see, think the word “respect”, I want to bust out in song (which, now that I’ve found the song to link here for this post, I’ll gladly listen to while writing this out). “R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Find out what it means to me!” Well, respect has a lot of meaning to me, and [...]

Fantasy fiction novels & why they belong on FLC

Someone mentioned to me that a few of my readers may be confused as to why I post action alerts about how to help animals, the environment, human rights, vegan recipes and then do what seems like a 180 and feature a fantasy fiction book review. In my “welcome” to the side I mention that [...]

A few May desktop calendars for you

That’s Happy How do you like my current desktop wallpaper from That’s Happy? As soon as I saw it I made it my background and then after admiring it on my computer for a bit, I realized that I needed to share it with all of you. I found quite a few other great May [...]

Never forget kindness

I bit off more than I could chew today so the post I planned to share along with this one today will have to wait for another day. It looks like my goal of simplifying and writing one post per day on most days took over this entire week. I need to get that balance [...]

What we all have in common

This is a taste of the walk I took today on this beautiful day. Rapeseed fields like this cover Switzerland in the springtime and are a beautiful site. I had no idea there were such beautiful fields until I moved here and now I live in a town that’s covered from all sides with such [...]

Say no to cruel cosmetics in Europe

Did you know that this week is World Week for Animals in Laboratories (WWAIL)? I recently found this petition by the BUAV and the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) for the immediate ban on any cosmetics tested on animals to be sold in Europe. A ban has already been made and is set to [...]
