Why Coloring is the New Therapy

Remember when we were little kids and wanted to spend our days doing nothing, but color? We would have our buckets of crayons and colored pencils besides us 24/7. We would think every picture we colored was a straight-masterpiece, yet looking at it now, you see that you had a strange eye for color coordination. Well, as…

Food for Thought: Vegan Pizza

Being a lactose-intolerant has it’s downfalls. I’m not able to enjoy dairy products, like everyone else, simply because my system will corrupt.

Why I won’t buy books on Amazon

Call me old-fashioned, but I actually like going to a bookstore. In today’s society, the online world is dominating physical businesses. Online print is being favored over newspapers.

At first bite, all you’ll hear is…

Food For Thought: Oatmeal Obsessed

Day at the Farmer’s Stand

Call me weird, but I always feel like a giddy little kid, anytime I get to go grocery shopping. Being that I’m now on Spring Break, I have been able to take some “Me Time” and do what I enjoy doing best. After visiting a local farmer’s stand I love, I left with a “Yummy Bundle.” It…

5 Things to Never Settle for in a Relationship Again

Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

I might as well be a slave to Pinterest. Regardless of what I’m doing, I will always find a way to browse recipe ideas on my Pinterest feed. Now I try to actually replicate the recipes and try them for myself, but sometimes my busy schedule doesn’t always allow that. Fortunately today I was able…
