Going Waste Free On a Budget (Period Edition)

Saturday, June 10, 2017

This post is going to a little different than my other post, it will also be a bit longer, but stick it out with me we are going to learn a little about ourselves (period) and how to save a little money.



One of my goals for the new year is to use less waste and save money. I have found many different ways to do both from doing a money saving challenge to no longer drinking bottled water. But I knew going into this the one area I really wanted to tackle was my cycle and eliminating the cost of pads and the waste of pads. Ideally I wanted to buy some Thinx’s, however, just for a three day light cycle (aka. three pairs of underwear), it would cost around $90 (No!). That is a lot of money upfront and us single moms are on a budget. For this reason, I decided to try out a more cost friendly avenue. Going waste free does not have to cost a lot.

How To Keep Healthy

Saturday, May 27, 2017

 "An apple a day keeps a doctor away" - this proverb was quite true for the generations of previous centuries. People who lived in the 16th century were not quite aware of the AIDs, or mental diseases such as bipolar disorder. The number of people who had such a diagnosis was much less than it is now. The viruses mutated, and the bodies of people have undergone a number of quality and quantity changes. If in the 17th century the ecology was quite normal for people to drink the water out of the rivers, now after Chornobyl and Fukushima catastrophes it's impossible to imagine this. However, there are some people on this planet who still live long and stay healthy until the end of their life. They might have got some secrets how to stay healthy. Here are just some of them:

7 College Safety Tips

Saturday, May 20, 2017



Although I’ve personally been out of college for a few years, there are many safety tips that I have when attending either a small campus or a large University. Being far from home, safety is high up on my list of priorities. For girls especially, it may not be the best of conversations but it needs to be talked about.

Cheap and Easy Photo Editing With FotoJet (Review)

Saturday, May 13, 2017

If you love Canva but hate the price FotoJet is what you need. Read my review and give Fotojet a try for free.

The hardest part of blogging for me is the branding. For a long time I did not care about the branding until I got really serious about my blogging (i.e. trying to turn it into an income). Being consistent and creating images for my blog take just as much time and thought as creating writing. So on recommendation I tried Canva (the go to for bloggers) but it comes with a steep price ($109 a year) so when I was contacted to do a review on FotoJet I was over the moon.

The psychological effects can be varied, furthermore, when there is a concept that any hair loss in women is socially unacceptable, women are more emotionally affected even when the thinning of their hairs is in early stages. These two perceptions make further complicated, the process of dealing with hair loss in women.
