How to Live Your Best Life

Are you living your best life? I seem to constantly ask myself this question, more so recently than before. I recently turned 25 and there were a lot of emotions and thoughts flowing in me. I’m a very confident person but I began to ask myself am I doing all the things I should be doing at this age. Am I happy at work, did I make the right decision going back to school and am I missing anything? I’m sure we have all asked these things whether you’re younger…

4 Ways to Prepare for the New Year

Can you believe that we’re already less than 90 days from the new year? It seems like the older I get, the years become shorter. I’m amazed at how years began to feel like months and months began to feel like days. I’m constantly asking, “Wasn’t January just last month?” People are usually busy living life during the year and rarely take a step back to see if they are accomplishing things they said they would at the beginning of the year. That is okay! Life happens, things happen. There…

Why You Should Consider Going Dairy-Free

I stopped eating dairy when a friend challenged me last October. At first, it started off as me not eating it for 90 days but then it has become a lifestyle for me. Before then, I don’t think I even considered it because I absolutely loved dairy. You can ask anyone, cheese was one of my favorite foods to eat. So, at first it was difficult, not only because I loved cheese but everything contains milk! I never realized that until I was forced to read the ingredient section. When…

It May be Time to Hit the Reset Button

A lot of people live their lives constantly doing something with their time. Every minute is spent doing something whether it’s working, spending time with family or a significant other, doing hobbies or just cleaning. I too fall guilty of not taking a moment to zoom out.

I started to notice I was doing the same things every day, every week and wasn’t finding time to actually do things that don’t consist of me thinking and planning things. It’s…

Recently, I have realized how important it is to get an adequate amount of sleep. Now, I don’t have a problem with getting sleep but instead with the quality of sleep I get. If you…

Why You Need a Skincare Regimen

I’ll have to be honest, for a very long time I didn’t have a skincare regimen. I didn’t break out a lot so I thought it didn’t matter how I washed my face or what I used. I never had any major issues with my skin unless I was stressing over something then I would get stress bumps in my break out areas. Even though I rarely encountered breakouts, I still found it beneficial to have a skincare regimen to maintain the condition of my skin. It’s important to begin…
