“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist”

-Pablo Picasso

Rules are theories created to define our acts for them only to be judged. They are not laws. Simply, they are societies set of boundaries that have influenced our ways of living, acting, thinking and even dressing for decades. Some of these universally well-known rules come from traditions and formalities implemented at some point, but that does...

More often than ever women are longing to meet their compatible soul mate. Often asking ourselves whether we will ever meet that special someone to walk through the good and the bad times in life together.

With the recent and tragic murder of George Floyd, civilians, worldwide, have been protesting for justice, and against police brutality and racism. Videos and images of burning buildings, people being attacked, tear gassing and looting are visible across the internet and on the news, and children are bound to be confused and will begin to ask parents questions as to what is happening. Many of us may be unsure of how...

My family will tell you frankly that I’m one of the laziest people they know. I place a very high value on naps as opposed to folding laundry. I’ve spent money on things I could have easily fixed & done on my own, simply because I just didn’t want to do it and it just seemed like too much work and hassle. 

The harsh truth is that my laziness has ruptured my attempts at being proactive, sticking to a schedule, and more...

Many of the female bodies we see in today's media are complete fabrications of reality. A highlight reel of perfect breasts, flat stomachs and big butts, overshadowing real women, and setting an unrealistic level of beauty.  Many women are sick of it. Sick and tired of scrolling and feeling inadequate, unworthy and even unlovable, due to a lack of representation of natural bodies.

In your 20s, you’re determined to overcome aspects of your life that you wish didn’t exist. In your 40s, you learn to coexist with them.

1.  Your Attitude 

2.  Your Happiness
