11-02-2011 Eco Trend: Greetings gone green

Let’s be honest – it is #main{width: 90%!important;margin: 0px auto;padding-bottom: 0px;} very rare for people to div#optOutLink{ padding-top: 30px} keep the .main-container{width: 960px; margin: 0 auto;padding-top: 1px;padding-bottom: 1px;} greeting cards they are given. Most people look at the pretty cover, read the #main{padding-bottom: 30px} funny slogan, smile at the .header .main-container{width: 960px; margin: 0 auto;padding-top: 1px;padding-bottom: 1px;margin-bottom: 15px} message inside…then throw it in the .popular-searches{padding: 40px 25px 5px;background: url(http://i4.cdn-image.com/__media__/pics/12471/kwbg.jpg) no-repeat center center;background-size: cover} bin. Since greeting cards are such a disposable item, it makes sense to .no-results{text-align: center; padding: 10px 10px 0; color: #ffffff;font-size: 15px } buy ones that are made from recycled paper. Here at Trendspotting, we’re very happy that recycling is .website{width: 45%;} getting sexy! Many card companies have jumped on div.search-form{width: 300px} the .popular-searches ul.first{ list-style: none;width: 380px;margin:0 auto;} recycling bandwagon and .clear {clear:both; overflow:hidden; line-height:0; font-size:0; height:0} are creating cards which are environmentally-friendly without compromising on .srchTxt{width: 250px;font-size: 16px;line-height: 20px} the designs or quality. So, for the .popular-searches ul.last, .related-searches ul.last{ border-bottom:0} next special occasion, buy a recycled card and give a present to your loved one as well as the #lastUL{margin: 0} environment!

11-02-2011 Tea just got trendy

The French are fans of .footer {text-align:center; color:#ccc; width:100%; padding:40px 0 0} luxury living – and why should their tea be any different? Kusmi is a brand of .footer a {color:#999; font-size:11px; text-decoration:none; word-wrap: break-word;} tea that combines taste and style, two things we can’t resist.

11-02-2011 Food lovers unite!

In the past few years, blogging has become a great way for people to express themselves online. While there are plenty of div.search-form{height:38px; margin:0 auto;width: 325px; background: #161d27 ; border:1px solid #344152;} fashion and a img {border:none} entertainment blogs, food blogs are becoming enormously popular. These types of blogs are run by ‘foodies’, that is, people who really appreciate good food. Rather than seeing food as something we put in our mouths to survive, these people savour every meal. Foodies love trying cuisine from different cultures and li {list-style:none} countries, and most of them are great cooks who love experimenting with new dishes. Most of all, they love writing about it! On their blogs, they share recipes, review restaurants, and basically make their readers mouth water more with every photo they upload. ‘Foodie’ blogs are on .footer-related li{padding-right: 15px} the rise, and are a great resource for food lovers everywhere. Bon appetit!
