Having a “Help Diary”


Many people will tell you of all the benefits of writing in a diary. These benefits are undoubtedly true! Writing down your thoughts and recording your feelings is a great outlet in a busy life and mind. I have tried and failed countless times to create a routine where I have a blank journal or sketchbook in which I write in.

Book Review: The Honest Life


To start I have to admit that I absolutely love Jessica Alba. She is a wonderful actress, a mom, an environmentalist and a social justice activist. As if that is not enough, she is the co-founder of an environmental friendly, non-toxic company. What I admire most in her is that she really fights for a better world and uses her voice for the good, she educates, gives back, goes to D.C. to advocate for Safe Chemicals Act to shake up America's awareness on the effects of exposure to dangerous toxins and to push Congress to pass the act.
