Find the original image source with TinEye

One of my biggest online pet peeves is when people don’t properly credit photos. (I’m sure you’ve realized this any time I mention tumblr on here.) It’s especially frustrating when I want to share a photo on Four Leaf Clover and can’t track the image back to the original source. My life just got a [...]

Pick the best font with Wordmark.it

This is one of the most helpful tools I’ve found since I started blogging. I don’t even know what all of my images would look like had I not discovered Wordmark.it thanks to Alpha Scout. Wordmark.it allows you to type in whatever word or phrase you’d like and then it loads the word(s) in all [...]

A little film on how to cook quinoa

When I posted my Quinoa + carrots + chickpeas dinner recipe I got a lot of “what’s quinoa?” questions. Some of them accompanied with a scrunched up nose… you know what I mean. But there’s absolutely no reason to scrunch that nose! Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a grain from South America which, when eaten alone, [...]

Life tip #9: Read labels

This is a very important life tip. I am frequently shocked time and time again when people don’t read labels before they purchase food. I’ve found that food is the number one factor when it comes to my and many other individuals’ health. When watching a program about vegetarianism on Oprah about a year ago, [...]

Life tip #5: Drink more water

I had to get a glass of water before stating this post. Luckily, water is my favorite drink. It’s fresh, healthy, and nothing is quite as satisfying after an exhilarating exercise. I make sure to keep a glass of water next to my bed every night and often times find myself reaching for it in [...]

E-cards are e-co friendly, especially these!

In case you want to make someone feel extra special today and let them know you love them, but are in need of a little last minute joy, what better way than through an e-card? I’m a huge lover of letters/cards in the post, but sometimes you just can’t get to it in time or [...]

The most beautiful flower of them all

When I wrote about organic cotton a while back, a few people told me they’d never heard or thought about clothing being organic so I imagine this will be even more surprising to some. Flowers, just like food, are mostly grown with pesticides and toxic chemicals. This is not only harmful to the flowers themselves, [...]

11 reasons why you should drink more green tea

As you know, I love tea and I drink a cup of green tea every single morning. I saw this today and had to share it with you! I spotted this on Jolie Marie!’s tumblr which led me to thinmint’s tumblr. As far as I know, that is the original source because I couldn’t trace it [...]

The story of bottled water

I watched The Story of Bottled Water a couple years ago and it has stuck with me ever since. I knew most of the behind story, but there was still new information in this video. I didn’t, for example, have any idea about what happened to recycled plastic bottles. The video may seem a bit long, [...]

Cott-on to fashion

You’ve probably been hearing about organic food for a few years now, but something not mentioned all that often is organic clothing. Just like what you put in your body makes a difference on your health and well-being, so does what you put on your body. Not only that, but clothing has a huge impact [...]
