Why You Need a Diffuser

Cute Oil Diffuser

When you think of relaxation and ambiance, candles are usually the first things that come to mind. They bring a certain type of warmth to any room. With fall here, Bath & Body Works candles are a must-have in any room.

Then, something tragic happens. You light your favorite cookie-scented candle and the unthinkable happens – you get a headache. For some unearthly reason, your favorite scent is bringing you more anxiety than relaxation.

Even though that would be some next level highlighting, the glow tonic I’m talking about is Pixi’s Glow Tonic. It’s an exfoliating toner that contains 5% glycolic acid and makes your skin oh-so-glowy.

#MeToo

Getting groped by drunk boy while you’re enjoying your night out is just as horrifying as it sounds. It has happened to me, my friends, your friends and will happen to many others unless we make this behavior completely unacceptable and raise men who behave otherwise. “Oh he was just drunk” will never be a valid excuse.

Miami Spice: Hakkasan Review

Hola babes!

If you don’t live in Miami, then you probably don’t know of a fabulous promotion here called Miami Spice. For the months of September and October, restaurants that usually charge an arm and a leg for lunch and dinner are offering their delicacies for a fraction of the price.

You can enjoy a three-course meal for prices ranging from $23 for lunch and $39 for dinner. Talk about experiencing the better things in life for half the price.

So naturally, when my boyfriend came to visit, I made it a point to go. We decided on Hakkasan, a high-end Cantonese restaurant located in the famed Fountainebleu – Frank Sinatra’s favorite vacation spot and home of LIV Nightclub.

Dog wrapped in towel

Hi babes!

Hope you’re healthy and thriving. Let’s all just take a moment and admit: sometimes you just don’t want to workout. You’ve established a routine and are eating well, but sometimes after a hectic day, the only thing you want to do is curl into a fetal position and watch Real Housewives.

And you know what? That’s perfectly OK. BUT, if you’re anything like me, every hour of relaxation equals an hour of anxiety.

How to Find a Photographer for Your Blog

Find Blog Photographer

Hi girlfriends,

Fellow blog babes who are just starting out, we’re in this together. I started my blog on the cusp of graduating college in a town where I had spent 4 years of my life. Come graduation time, I realized that all of my creative contacts would stay in Gainesville while I would move hundreds of miles away to Miami.

During the first month of living in Miami, I was struggling with everything from finding the right grocery store to blog-related issues like finding a community and decent photographer.

In the following, I’m going to tell you about how I found an awesome photographer for FREE! If you’re trying to ball on a budget like I am, this is the only viable option. Although I needed a cost-conscious photographer, I also looked for photographers that would charge per shoot, so I’ll talk about that too.

The Best Podcasts for Your Morning Commute

Hi babes!

Having a 9-5 makes the day go by faster than ever. I used to have time to find a nook and settle down with a good book, but those days are gone. Sure, I can read on the weekends, but leaving a story unread for five days then picking it back up just lessens the reading experience.

When I started to blog, I wanted to do as much research as I could on business building and succeeding in my side hustle. From this desire, I stumbled upon *angel’s chorus * podcasts. I literally listen to podcasts more than music nowadays. I could be cleaning, cooking or getting ready in the morning and learning at the same damn time. How’s that for multitasking?
