Here’s how to make the ultimate charcuterie board

I would argue that 2020 was the year of the charcuterie board.

The importance of understanding what is creepy and what is a compliment

The day and age we find ourselves living in is a rather complicated and confusing one.

Try this hair hack and never use conditioner again

Shampoo and conditioner are two products that just about all of us make use of. One is important in terms of its ability to clean hair, and the other acts as a sort of follow-up by bringing moisture and other hydrating properties back into hair that shampoo may have stripped.

Yes, eating late at night really is as bad as you think

For whatever reason, food just seems to taste better when consumed in the late hours of the evening. We all know eating late isn’t the best practice as it can be a hindrance to our metabolism, but from time to time, you gotta cave and raid the fridge after binging Netflix for hours and it’s … More Yes, eating late at night really is as bad as you think

Yesterday afternoon, I received a text from Bell reminding me that today is #BellLetsTalkDay. I made a mental note to be sure to use the hashtag across social media platforms as I normally do.

The importance of utmost transparency in serious relationships

I think it is safe to say that honesty is a rather important aspect of any serious relationship.

Mind your tongue

It seems to me as though people in general are excessively miserable as of late. As human beings we are all a little bit miserable from time to time, but recently, it is almost as though all of us had someone shit in our morning coffee.
