The holidays are a joyous time of year where we tend to indulge a bit more than usual. Endless parties, family get togethers, and outings with friends can drain our wallets quicker than you can twitch your nose like I Dream of Jeannie. For some of us, this means the holidays can be a marathon of . . .
Why is healthy eating so tedious sometimes? I mean, who wouldn't want to have a glowing complexion all the time and feel awesome in your own skin. I blame it on Starbucks cranberry bliss bars and Golden Oreo cookies. Both of which I'm known to have a craving for. The sad truth is that cravings are . . .
I didn’t want it to happen but it did. I had a meltdown on Saturday. My thoughts got the best of me and the tears just started flowing. The tears progressed to all out sobbing. I always try to stop myself from crying, as if its some horrible fault to break into tears sitting alone in your living . . .

Maybe the rental car broke down, or at some point, Google Maps sent you in circles. Or maybe, you forgot your . . .
ROAD TRIP CALIFORNIA!!!! Yep, I said it (err, wrote it) in capital letters because I am that excited. I am road tripping across the sunshine state of California. Who doesn’t love a road trip? Journeying to new places, taking in beautiful scenery, all while singing ABBA, AC/DC and Ellie Goulding at . . .
Can we talk about debt and simplicity for a minute? Yea I know, debt and simplicity seem like a weird couple destined to be at odds with one another. But they’re actually two peas in a pod. By leading a simple life with less, it begets a debt free life. And here’s where that chat about debt and . . .
