Benefits Of Travel


I always like to think of travel as a privilege. You can either do it, or you can't. Sometimes it may be because of bad timing, or financial reasons or sometimes it can be because of different types of travel phobias - such as fear of flying or crossing oceans. But, I personally think there is such rewarding benefits from taking a trip every now and then, whenever you can, and on whatever scale.

7 Beauty Secrets That Are Free


Think about how much you spend each year on beauty products. This includes: makeup, skin care, hair care, etc. I know that I personally probably spend $500+ each year on these products, if not more.

Knowledge Is Power


Confusion. If there is one word that sums up most people’s eating dilemmas, it’s confusion. People just don’t know what they should be eating. We live in a time where information is literally at our fingertips 24 hours a day. You don’t have to go back that far to a time when if you wanted to know something you would have to go to the library or maybe you had a set of encyclopedias at home you could look up.

Food To Banish Knee Pain


Last year I finally bit the bullet and started running. It was great; I felt better about myself, I was the healthiest I’d ever been and my childhood-come-adulthood asthma was subsiding as my lungs grew stronger. Each step I took felt like a step towards a healthier me, what could go wrong?

Food: Love Over Fear


Food was always the enemy. I just couldn’t seem to help myself. I would incessantly gobble up chocolate and French fries and chicken fingers and milkshakes. I knew it was wrong and I hated how I looked, but finding restraint when the tempters were so salacious was nearly impossible.
