The One Thing You Need To Do For Clear(er) Skin

It’s not unusual to want better skin. We all do! With a never-ending list of tonics, toners and tea tree – how can you even figure out where to start? I know what you are thinking, there is no way that I only need one product – and you are right. But you can do one routine. There are so many different recommendations for products, regimens, and rules that you need to follow all with promises of great skin in your future.

What I Learned From Completing 12 Weeks of BBG

I don’t want to bury the lead, so here are answers to all of your questions including my results, if I would recommend the program, and what modifications I made…

Save $180 a Year and Get Audiobooks For Free

Save $180 a Year and Get Audiobooks For Free

What would you do if you had all the time in the world? Read more? The harsh reality of adulthood is that we rarely get time to read leisurely and as much as we want to – it usually doesn’t happen. Audible knows this and hence the billion dollar podcast/audiobook industry was born.

I was also the victim of $14.95 monthly fee in order to check off my “read 12 books this year” resolution until I figured out how to get those books (legally) for free….

You Will Never Buy Salsa From The Store Again

You Will Never Buy Salsa From The Store Again

I don’t know about you, but every Mexican restaurant I ever go to is judged immediately by two measures: 1. Is there free salsa? and 2. Is it good? I wouldn’t say that I am picky about my salsa, but I just want it to be spicy, blended, and tangy. Okay fine – I’m picky…but I wear that like a badge of honor. I know good salsa, so when it was time to make my own – I knew it had to be great…

This Is The LEAST Important Ingredient Of A Lasting Relationship

You’ve heard the phrase your entire life. Maybe you agree, maybe you passionately dissent or maybe you just aren’t sure where you stand yet on the “opposites attract” theory.

Things You Need to Start Saying No To

Things You Need to Start Saying No To

Sorry Shondra, the ‘Year of No’ is a real thing (that’s a witty reference to Shondra Rhimes “Year of Yes” book for my non-literary friends.) Often on the weekends, I’m stressing about the projects that I need to complete in order to be prepared for the upcoming week. When my friends want to kick it and have fun, I am hyperaware of the things that I could be doing in order to be productive over relaxed. The balance between overwork and productively is a tough line to straddle and I find myself having to say no more often then I would like to in order to be truly present in my downtime….
