Living a Slower Paced Life

Every time I travel to Europe, I fall in love with their culture. The easy, slow-paced living is my dream.

Does The Universe Have Your Back?

My Bedtime Beauty Routine

Sleeping has always been one of my favorite things to do, although lately I haven’t seen much of it.

Latest Update On: The Universe Has Your Back

Meditation has always been so strange to me; having tried it a couple of times and totally failing at it, I thought it just wasn’t for me. But then again, that’s how yoga started as well.

Fitness Challengeee!! Most people probably read those words and cringe.

But keeping … Continue Reading

My Growing Relationship With Fitness

Health and fitness is one of those things you wish you loved. New Years start with  strict goals for ourselves like: No fried food, drink more water, workout 5 days a week, no alcohol drinking during the week. WHO are we kidding?
