Planning for a Healthier Body

How many of you have ever decided to start living a healthy lifestyle, maybe as a new years resolution or simply a promise to yourself? Did you stick to that promise or did you stop because life threw some unexpected twists and turns at you? If that's the case then don't feel guilty, we've all been there.

The Essential Oils I Diffuse (and Why)

We all know essential oils have been used through centuries for many different purposes like medicine, remedies, and therapy. I personally use essential oils in my home as cleaning agents, facial treatments, and aroma therapy. When I diffuse the oils they produce certain smells that help me relax and get through the day better. Essential oils are not made with harsh chemicals, so it is a great way to release scents into my house without spraying air fresheners or lighting candles. With that being said, I’ve compiled a list of essential oils that I diffuse at home and I’ll tell you exactly why I use them:

My 3 Favorite Age Fighting Secrets

Okay lets face it, aging isn't fun for anyone.

More Food, Less Waste

Anyone who knows me knows that my number one pet peeve is wasted food. This is a serious issue because food is one of our primary needs for survival and some people cant even afford to buy it for themselves. Just in the USA alone 30-40% of the total net food supply is wasted every year. That's 222 million tons of food. All of this waste is the single highest contribution to landfills around America. Furthermore, animals are being raised simply to be killed for their meat all while the meat isn't even consumed. Although it is impossible to completely wipe out this issue, efforts can be made to drastically diminish it. To bring awareness to the issue I've put together a list of organizations that work towards reducing food waste while simultaneously feeding those in need.

5 Steps to Hair Growth

Hair growth is something that a ridiculous amount of men and women struggle with everyday. Many people dont have a lot of natural compounds within their bodies that are meant to grow their hair. As a result, they are forced to use products or remedies that activitate their hair folicles. I am truly lucky because I personally dont have much of a problem growing my hair out. However, about three years ago while skimming through a magazine, I saw a picture of a woman with a bob hair cut. I thought it looked fantastic on her, so I made the tragic mistake of chopping my own hair off to about the length of my chin. Long story short, I've been trying to grow it out ever since. While it has taken a significantly long time to grow my hair back, there are a few things that I do daily to nourish my locks in the meantime. I know there are many different remidies on the internet, but these 5 steps work for my hair the best and I'll tell you why:
