Kick Start Your Fitness

Whether you’re a fitness pro, an utter newbie or somewhere in the middle, starting a new fitness regime can seem daunting. But never fear! Preparing for your new venture doesn’t have to be - and with the right prep, the workout will be a breeze.

Perfect Autumn Hairstyles Advice

With autumn now in full swing, the majority of us are switching our looks from warm and bright summer colours into warmer autumnal hues that offer a little more protection from the cold. While we’re all familiar with a change of fashion style as the seasons evolve, there’s plenty of other ways your look can change as you (albeit potentially reluctantly) seek to embrace the new season.

Today, let’s focus on hair. Your hair will feel the change of season just like your skin will, so it might be in need of a little TLC. There’s also new looks and hairstyles you might want to try, so you at least have something to smile about through the autumn.

Modern Uses For Old School Tech

It’s fair to say that modern tech is constantly evolving. It’s hard to believe that iPhones have only been in the public consciousness for a decade; before the 2007 launch, how did any of us spend our time without constantly being able to check social media and read our favorite sites? Tech changes the world at an ever-more rapid pace.


While this is wonderful and is offering us all opportunities we once would never have been able to experience, there are a few downsides too. The most obvious of these is how quickly technology -- that was once considered so essential and innovative -- begins a shift towards obsolescence. You probably have old tech cluttering up your house that you’ve been meaning to throw out, but could there still be a use for it even in the high-tech modern world?

Olay Luminous 28 Day Challenge Results...

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.






I can't even tell you how excited I was to be invited to participate in the Olay Luminous 28 Day Challenge! Olay has been synonymous with beautiful complexions for generations and the way that they've diversified the brand is so progressive. In fact, the Luminous line is a real draw for women of color (or all women really) who want their skin to glow, but not look oily. I gravitate towards products that help to highlight my skin tone and complexion, especially since I don't incorporate foundation in my makeup routine. My skin needs to look and feel healthy, smooth, and glowy without being greasy. Olay Luminous products are touted to help you achieve the "Fresh Face"/"no-makeup" look in four easy steps! {Products provided for review/feature consideration}

Wunderkind Reads: But I Don't Eat Ants by Dan Brown (Ilustrations by Kelly Fry)



"Koalas aren't called Eucalyptus-eaters. Pandas aren't called Bamboo-eaters. Jaguars eat Anteaters, but they aren't called Anteater-eaters!" insists a voracious young Anteater who will gobble up just about every food except for one: ants! This clever take on the picky-eater is full of wry humor and silly puns as the anteater takes us through the food he LOVES to eat, all while repeating the refrain, "but I don't eat ants." That is until dinnertime when his mom presents him with with a "fiery" surprise. The final punchline playfully depicts the often illogical rationalizations of young picky eaters in a way that will have kids and their parents laughing. {Book provided for review/feature consideration}

3 Ways to Keep Your Phone Safe During Your Workout

Our phones are incredible devices with so much technology packed into them that it’s hard to find a use for it at times. However, one of the most popular uses of a smartphone nowadays is to use it as a fitness assistance.
