In the recent past, juicing had a front and center spot in the world of health and weight loss. Now, the tides have turned to make room for so-called “teatox” plans.

On Last Week Tonight with John Oliver the most recent impactful rant was about the Miss America Pageant. John Oliver questioned how the Miss America Pageant is even still relevant? From the stupid questions they ask during interviews, to the swimsuit competition, judging criteria, and other nonsense of the show, Miss America even claims to be “the world’s largest provider of scholarships for women.” Watch the video and see how absurd it really is. Should Miss America still be around with all of these claims? Photo Source: youtube.comRead More

And for the fellas, before you decide to laugh and move on to the next post on this site, you really should watch this speech. Why, you ask?

Besides, fall is another season to reinvent yourself and your relationships for the holidays and in time for the New Year. I’ve compiled aRead More

“Not everything is cosmic, kid.”   The words came out of my best friend’s mouth and immediately found a permanent place in the forefront of my mind.  My entire adult life I have spent more time analyzing the connections I’ve made, the people who have come in and out of my life, my decisions and the decisions of others than I have actually enjoying the connections and the people while I have them. Here are 5 ways you can learn to enjoy the present instead of analyzing what the universeRead More
