So I’m rounding up all my favorite skin care and nail care products that will help you stay hydrated and your skin won’t hate you for this winter.

How to Feel Secure if Your Life Goal Isn’t “Normal”

How to Feel Secure if Your Life Goal Isn't "Normal" // Sometimes our life goals aren't something concrete, or they're different than what most people around us think is a good idea. How do we combat all those Negative Nancy's telling us it's a terrible idea? Click here to read more.

Life goals are something that are almost sacred to every individual person. They’re something we want to do or accomplish in our lifetime. Some people want to have specific careers, some people want to travel to certain places, and some people want some more abstract things like “being happy” or “being a good parent”.

But what happens when your goal doesn’t line up with what society, or at the very least, what your social circle considers “acceptable”. What happens when what you want to accomplish in your life is considered weird or strange?

This can be a big problem for people because more often than not, if you have a goal that is considered “strange” you already know that it doesn’t fall within some sort of norm, whether that be societal, within your social circle, or even within your family. So you have some sort of a heads up to dealing with this.

However, that doesn’t make dealing with the reactions of other people any less hurtful. In this post I’m going to go through ways to make it so those silly comments don’t hurt as much.

CBD Boost or Bust? My Thoughts on BoostCBD

BoostCBD Watermelon O.G.: Review // Another day, another CBD vape cartridge review. This time around I review Boost CBD's Watermelon flavored vape cart. Want to know what I think? You'll have to click here!

So way back when I went on vacation down to the Jersey Shore one of the stands was selling CBD products. As someone who is very interested in CBD oil and the benefits it has for my life, I was interested in trying out new flavors or products.

They had a variety of things, I believe the stand was part of the Luck Leo’s sweet shop. They sold teas and chocolates that were available both inside the sweet shop and outside. However, the rest of the CBD products were sold at the stand outside.

I went with the Boost CBD watermelon flavored vape cart (200mg/.5ml cart; broad spectrum distillate, full spectrum profile). If you want to know how I felt about the vape cartridge, keep on reading!

2020 WILL Be My Year, Whether it Wants to Or Not

2020 WILL Be My Year, Whether it Wants to Or Not // For 2020, I'm going to make it my time. 2020 doesn't get a choice in the matter, I'm coming into the year with a game plan and it will go my way, whether it wants to or not. Want to know what I have going on? Click here to find out.

I remember thinking back to the beginning of this year. I remember thinking how I wanted to finally take control of my life and have some good things happen to me. I wasn’t exactly in bad graces with the world, but I hadn’t had anything good going for me either.

Unfortunately, 2019 hated me so much it caused quite a few mental breakdowns. The short of it: I had to go to the hospital in February and just recently finished paying off that bill, had some tiffs with family along the way, and had so many car issues that it almost ruined my very first adult vacation.

For 2020, I’m going to make it my time. 2020 doesn’t get a choice in the matter, I’m coming into the year with a game plan and it will go my way, whether it wants to or not. Want to know what I have going on? Keep reading to find out.

How to Survive if You End Up with the Flu This Season

How to Survive if You End Up with the Flu This Season

 

No one likes flu season. I’m not even sure if the flu likes flu season. It doesn’t help that the flu, while seemingly innocent, is actually quite deadly. In the 2017 – 2018 flu season there were an estimated 61,000 deaths, a massive jump from the 38,000 in the 2016 – 2017 season.

That’s a lot of people! 

You don’t have to worry too much if you take care of yourself properly if or when you have the flu. As an asthmatic who is at higher risk of the flu turning into something much worse, I’ve had my fair share of experiences. In this post I will outline my best tips for getting yourself over the flu in record time.

Spending Christmas Alone When You Don’t Like Christmas

What happens when you don't like Christmas and you aren't visiting family? It's a rough time, but sometimes it's worth your mental health. This year I'm spending Christmas a lone, and it's actually not that bad.

Anyone who comes from a toxic family can understand where I’m coming from here. Holiday gatherings were usually full of dread, and not just because you have to answer a million questions from your Aunt Edna, but because when toxic family gets together, it gets so much worse.

In this post I’m going to go over a brief summary of how Christmas was growing up, and what I’m doing this year that I’m celebrating the holiday without visiting family for the first time. Keep reading if you want to take this journey with me.
