5 Healthy (Cold) Lunch Ideas

So I recently started working a new job – Operations Manager at LA Fitness. I try to bring my own lunch with me everyday, but with there being no way to heat my food, thinking of what to bring without getting sick of things has been a challenge. Admittedly, I definitely don’t end up bringing my lunch every single day, but I do my best to bring it most days. My gym is very close to the mall, so sometimes…

Cannabis World Congress Business Exposition

A couple days ago, my dad and I attended the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo in NYC at the Javits Center. Some of you may already know this, but I’m registered for the Certified Holistic Medical Cannabis Practitioner program that is beginning this fall.

An Honest Review of Beautycounter Face Makeup

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about Beautycounter lately, from many of my favorite trusted bloggers.
