Does Age Really Matter?

Read More

When it comes down to relationships, what role does age really play a part? Well, I have to conclude from my own personal experience, that age does matter. My last relationship was with a man 16 years my senior, and needless to say, it didn’t work out. I think when you decide to date someone outside the 10 year age gap the relationship is vulnerable to generational differences. At most times,…

Living Life Without Overthinking It

Read More

Too often I witness friends over-analyzing situations, and sometimes I am guilty of it too, but I try to be aware of my thoughts and not let my mind take over. In general, our minds have a negative connotation when reflecting on one’s self-position. We allow our minds to wander into “what could be” scenarios that prevent us from really living life, and many of times, creating your own fear…

The title of the collection reflected on the importance of all human beings working together to help take care of this home we call, Earth. As we entered the show brochures were given to not only describe each look in her collection, but to also enlighten…

Parenting Demands and Daily Shortcuts

Read More

I know there are many of you who can relate to lack of time. I happen to be a working mother, which means the pressure is on to face all types of demands: getting yourself ready and your kid to leave for work and school on time, packing lunchboxes, helping with homework, doing projects (let’s face it, until a certain age, it’s the parents doing them), plus all the other…

Relationships and Adult Breakups

Read More

Relationships are hard and adult breakups are even worse, but there is nothing more therapeutic than music to help you get through a breakup. We all find that one song that resonates with us. Mine happens to be “Brand New Me” by Alicia Keys. I’ve had it downloaded forever, but never found it to be very relatable until I heard it today on my shuffle playlist. I recently went through…

A Detox Bath with Instant Gratification

Read More

(Photo: Country Living Magazine) In my search for a healthier way of being, I’ve come to discover that I’ve been obsessing over different detox methods. I’ve tried a few, but none compare to the Apple Cider Vinegar bath. I instantly saw results after just one soak. I literally tried it for the first time Sunday night, and needless to say, I went and stocked up on A LOT of Apple…

Solitude

Read More

Life. We all search to find the true meaning, always asking ‘What is my purpose?’ I don’t think one can clearly answer this question without experiencing trials and tribulations. We learn from our mistakes and ponder on the what ifs. And I think as we get older, it’s necessary to have time of solitude to think about those things. A go to place where you can gather your thoughts and…

A Party to Remember…Happy Birthday

Read More

It’s not too often that you are blessed to celebrate your fiancé’s and best friend’s birthday in one night. Yet alone, knowing that they share the exact same birthday, which is today, December 21st. I wanted to give them a celebration to remember their milestone chapter of turning 40, and for one, 40 again 😉   Even though we had to celebrate early due to the holiday season they, and…

It’s ALL About Relationships

Read More

Thanksgiving is a holiday where it’s important to take time to self reflect and appreciate the people who have helped shape your life to what it is today. Often, there is too much focus on material things and what we need to do to attain them. Forgetting about the relationships, that ultimately, we will reflect back to later in life and wish we had given them more energy. Think about…

Living Freely and Wisely

Read More

The progression of life is a hard thing to swallow.  Adjusting to change is one thing, but looking at the end of life is another. I don’t think nowadays people plan for living into their 90’s. (Sad news is, the likelihood of it happening is much higher these days.) We are so stuck on buying newer and better things, that we don’t really stop to think about how we hope…
