My husband and I have been married for almost four years now and time is flying. Although we usually have a good time together, we are at the point in our relationship where we don’t really plan dates. We always know on Friday night we are going to go out to eat and get a couple of drinks. Over the weekends we hang out with friends, watch movies, work on the house together or just relax. This is great for us because we are the type of people who LOVE to relax. Occasionally though, it is nice to do something…

Erin Condren……Queen of all planners recently arrived on my doorstep. For those of you tuned into the planner world, this is one of the prettier and easily customized planners on the market. I got mine last week and I am still in that blissful phase where everything looks pristine and I try my hardest to have good handwriting when I write in there. I usually keep this up for about a month until life gets too busy and I have to scribble down my daily tasks as fast as I can. **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives…

For me, living the dream includes making money with flexible hours where I can still hang out with my dogs all day. Over the course of the past few years, I have spent countless hours researching how I can make enough money online to where I can make that my full-time job. The two jobs I talk about in this post have been the most consistent stream of income I have seen since I started my online ventures. One online money making opportunity I won’t talk about today is blogging. While I have been blessed the past few months with…

I don’t know about you, but the one thing I can always cut back on is my time spent on social media. It’s just one of those things that becomes a time suck when you would be doing a hundred other things with your time. Now, don’t get me wrong. I do like social media. I manage social media as part of my day job and I am also a blogger, so it comes with the territory. But, I don’t think we have to go off the deep-end and let it consume our lives. I think we can interact with…

Meal delivery services are starting to become a weekly staple in households all over the place. At first, I didn’t participate because there weren’t many vegan options and the price for the amount of food I received didn’t seem worth it. With the meal delivery market blowing up within the past few years, there are options for those of us who like to eat a little bit more of a specific diet. **Disclosure: I am a professional website author that receives compensation from the companies whose products I review.

For many 20-somethings, the period of time after college graduation and before other responsibilities kick in is an opportunity for fun and exploration. With a first real job and salary, 20-somethings are often tempted to focus on taking vacations, buying things that they couldn’t afford before, and simply enjoying their young adulthood. While all of these things can be part of your 20’s, frugality should play a pretty significant role in your financial mindset during this time in order to better prepare you for your future.   Your 20’s are the time that can set the tone for your financial…

Living a plant-based or Vegan lifestyle is one way to become healthier and have more energy on the day to day. I for one, find it extremely terrifying to give myself a “vegan” or “plant-based only” label. I don’t want to go through life knowing I can never have that delightful piece of cheesecake again. I figure, why not have the best of both worlds? Eat mostly plant-based but also allow myself to have special treats every now and then. I don’t really care for labels to begin with but if I had to call myself anything I would say…

A consistent and positive morning routine is the first part of having a great day. Once I began a morning routine I found myself excited to wake up and get out of bed to get the day started. It is amazing how the little things can change your outlook on the day or even your life. Going to work all day everyday can really take a toll on your energy levels and motivation to get up in the morning. I have learned that giving myself something to look forward to in the morning helps me get up feeling energized and…
