    Convincing Reasons Why Wood Patterned Tile is Better Than Hardwood!

    Convincing Reasons Why Wood Patterned Tile is Better Than Hardwood!

    It’s been years since the debate between tiles and hardwood on floor has been going on! While one is considered as supreme luxury, the other doesn’t stay behind in appeal either. Many of us are smitten by the look and opulence that timber floorings bring in – but are sceptical about the maintenance part. Plus, hardwood does not come in a budget price range either. So, do you compromise the way you want your space to look for the sake of practicality? Enter the scenes -- wood patterned ceramic tiles. Haven’t heard of them? Or their benefits? No wonder you never considered that possibility and went ahead with hardwood at the end of the day!

    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!

    Dare to Say No to Single-Use Plastic

    Dare to Say No to Single-Use Plastic

    If you’re like me, the idea that inorganic, non-biodegradable, single-use plastics are somehow the go-to packaging unit is just illogical; almost as illogical as seventeen states in our country having statewide ban preemptions or preventative measures restricting even the possibility of future bans of their use. As crazy as it may seem to some of us, we are still the ones allowing it. Therefore, the purpose of this article is not to place blame, rather, the purpose of this article is to establish personal accountability. Corporations use plastic because it is durable, inexpensive, and accepted by us all.

    DIY - Homemade Dry Laundry Detergent

    As my lifestyle swings further and further towards a radical self-reliance (even though a friend of mine insists there's nothing radical about self-reliance), it is obvious that additional consideration must be given to the things we take for granted in our lives. A sense of cleanliness and respectability are mandatory if one of the primary objectives is to mingle with the people of the world and seek their stories. It goes without saying that you cannot smell the scent of my active lifestyle through a video posted online, but I guarantee that I am very self conscious as I proceed with my plans of going completely off grid with every aspect of my life.

    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.

    According to a report by the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) 6,227 fatal pedestrian accidents occurred in 2018, the highest number of accidents in the past three decades. While improvements to motor vehicle safety and laws against driving under the influence or distracted have increased protection for drivers, pedestrians remain mostly unprotected and at higher risk of suffering deadly injuries from a car accident. Drivers aren’t the only ones guilty of distractions, pedestrians using handheld devices are also at risk of causing accidents. Studies have found that pedestrians who are texting and walking have a higher risk of being involved in an accident than others who are not engaging in these activities.
