    5 Hacks For A Smoother, Cleaner Shave

    If you shave on a regular basis, you might think you know everything you need to about getting a close, smooth shave that leave you looking your best.

    5 Myths About Buying a Mattress Online

    5 Myths About Buying a Mattress Online

    I’m an avid online shopper. But I haven’t always been this way. After years of click-and-go practice, I’ve become a self-proclaimed expert at finding the best picks in any category, learning to carefully balance high quality and affordability. Since most of my friends are more skeptical to order things online, I’m usually the guinea pig and will take the plunge first because I have no problem with returning. My friends constantly ask me for online shopping advice and love to know what I’ve bought recently. The one that keeps surprising everyone is my personal favorite online purchase: my beloved Lull mattress.

    How to Build a Sleep Sanctuary on a Budget

    How to Build a Sleep Sanctuary on a Budget

    Just this year, I transitioned from working my 9-5 office job to working for myself — woo! With this change came a serious realization: I need to update my bedroom. As the majority of my work is done via laptop in my personal space, I knew the investment and time would be worth it to make a space where I could be productive during the day and cozy at night. I have always been a budget-friendly shopper, typically purchasing only the pieces that are necessary. As a result, I was prohibiting my space from feeling cozy — simply due to dollars! Well, within a matter of weeks I realized that in order to be creative, inspired, comfortable, and productive, I have to love my space. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that I can love my space while still on a budget. Are you skeptical? Find out how I created the bedroom of my dreams!

    How to Shop Smarter and Safer During the COVID-19 Outbreak

    How to Shop Smarter and Safer During the COVID-19 Outbreak

    In the midst of the corona virus pandemic, many are practicing social distancing and staying indoors to avoid the risk of exposure to or even spreading the disease. For some people, that means working from home, catching up on the latest Netflix series, and taking college courses online in the comforts of a blanket burrito. While having to make changes to our daily routines one thing is constant: the need and desire for food. Fortunately, most grocery stores remain open so that we can replenish our refrigerators and pantries. But there is one question on everyone’s mind: Is it safe to make a food run or should we try delivery?

    Modeling

    Growing up I was always told that I was ugly and couldn't be anything beautiful because I wasn't "allowed" to. I always wanted to be a model and or actress but between kids & my foster parents I never thought I'd be able to. Now I am modeling and acting, I've changed my appearance and the way I feel about myself and I feel more in control of my life. It took a long time but it is worth it. The way I see myself now, no one can bring me down ever again. I know that from the start if wouldn't be easy but I knew it was possible. My confidence level is higher than ever and I am thankful for the people who support me through this journey and who bring me up when I'm down.

The new age photography techniques and technology, along with well-trained photographers, allows us to create memories that look so artistic they’re almost out of this world. And if you can’t find the inspiration, here are some ideas you should consider.

    Language is an ever-evolving ball of lingual energy hurtling around the earth, ping-ponging from mouth to mouth. Words are discovered; words are spread. A subset of the older generation come along, grumbling as they berate some of these new words. A subset of the younger generation overuse some of these new words and further ruffle the grey feathers of those who came before.

    Why Expats Should Learn the Local Language

    It’s a common experience. You arrived in your new country full of enthusiasm, or at least good intentions. But six months in, you’ve found that it’s harder than you thought to get past the initial stages of language learning. You’ve found, too, that English is perfectly sufficient to get by, both with the locals who all seem to speak it fine (or at least passably), and within the expat community: you have Anglophone removal men, doctors, cleaners. Your children go to international schools. Your friends are also strangers in this foreign land, and English is the common language between you.

    How You Can Go Green While on Vacation

    Something that may not be too surprising is that lifting an extremely heavy, all-metal contraption with wings and full of people to 35,000 feet above the ground isn’t the cleanest or more efficient form of travel. It’s also not too surprising that if you tried to walk to Cabo, you would use all your vacation time – and then some. As a result, air travel is a necessity. While this is true, it doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to make your experience greener, which is good for you and the world.
