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. The thing is, I like makeup. I like feeling pretty or beautiful. I like receiving compliments. However, I realized something just this past week. Beauty is free. The person that you are, the ideas that you hold in your mind and the love that is in your heart all help to make you the beautiful person that you are today. Scars, acne, stretch marks...whatever it is that you believe makes you “imperfect” actually makes you just the opposite.

What I Wish I Knew In High School About My Skin


High School….how I loved you and how I hated you. Everyone was awkwardly growing into their own skin while dealing with school work, friend drama, heightened emotions, and for a lot of us, bad skin. I wish I could say I didn’t care, but I definitely did. My skin wasn’t the WORST, but I definitely had multiple zits camping out on my face 24/7.

Surviving And Blossoming After a Negative Attack On Your Core-Self


Have you ever questioned your core-self because someone placed a seed of doubt in your mind? All it takes is one negative comment and who we are as an individual can quickly unravel. Personally, I have had this happen many times in my life and even recently. I am a very energetic, positive, happy and caring person and I love being ‘high vibration’, it’s who I am. Yet, on many occasions, I have been ridiculed and put down for being who I am. I have been told: “You’re such a cheerleader”, “How can you always be so happy, it’s unrealistic”, “Are you on drugs”, "Only children are this happy", and other negative comments. These deeply hurt because all I want is to be happy and for others to be happy around me, bring each other up and want the best for each other no matter what. Sometimes it's hard to stay positive and upbeat when my positivity is attacked and challenged. There always seems to be one or two people that look down upon my core-self and will do and say anything to make me question and doubt myself.
