My Current Skincare Routine

Hi friends! I know I don’t talk about skincare super often, but it is something that has become significantly more important to me over the past few years, and I believe it’s a huge part of overall health. Exactly two years ago at this time, I was going through a really rough time with my

What “Power of She” Means to Me

I have been wanting to publish this post for a long time now, but it’s a topic that can be a little difficult to put into words. Or at least in a way that others will be able to understand and relate to. I’ve learned over time that no matter what we do in this

Make 2016 Your Healthiest Year Yet

How many of you have ever made a New Years resolution? (All of you raise your hands.) How many of you have stuck with those resolutions for the first week? (75% of you raise your hands.) How many of you continued to worked towards that goal for six more months? Well… this is awkward. Sadly, this

Today’s society thrives on social media. We have countless outlets on which we can share anything and everything we want through photos, videos, stories, and status posts. There’s Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest, YouTube, blogs & so much more. It’s that wonderful freedom of speech thing we have going on here in America. But are these sites
