Before she leaves, though, it is paramount to help her understand her finances and what adult life will have in store. Here are a few tips to include in the conversation to help your child become a financially responsible adult:
A penny saved is a penny earned, but more importantly, a penny that could be used to grow into a small fortune one day. Savings is an important part of any adult’s life as it helps to steer clear of purchasing on credit and racking…

When you first decide to make health and fitness a priority in your life, you’re on a roll. You’ve filled your kitchen with healthy food, your activewear is on point, and you feel inspired. You’re ready to go. But then, something happens.
Maybe you get scared. You hit a road bump in nutrition. You find that you’re spending too much money on food or a gym membership. You have to travel out-of-town and leave your routine. Or you get bored. All of these things are barriers that can hold you back from achieving your goals. However, they do not have to stop you.

I can’t blame people for asking me this. Everyone (or most people) want to travel. But not everyone can. And if I hadn’t taken the appropriate steps I wouldn’t be able to either.
First things first, here is how I am NOT funding my travels: Apart from the odd small money nudge like birthdays, christmas etc… my parents, family and friends do not give me a dime for my globe trotting. If you don’t know already, I come from a single low-income family. When I’m not at uni, I live with my Mum, a clothes maker, and my Aunt, a hospital secretary. This does mean I receive quite a generous bursary each month as well as the highest possible student loan the government offer. I understand not everyone is a student so hopefully my advice below is for everyone and not just a select few! There is no company sponsoring…

“Motherhood is a choice you make every day, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is….and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” – Donna Ball, At Home on Ladybug Farm
Sacrifice is a word that just about sums up my mother’s life. Trying to describe her is a bit like trying to describe a beautiful colour, nearly impossible! Nevertheless, I want to honour my mother by telling some of her story – or I should say my experience of her as her daughter. Mom was tough, very strict in many ways. Yet, she was always fair, and often very soft-hearted, though she did her best to hide it. She raised nine children in a small house without running water or such luxuries…

For people who are under the clutches of Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia – Serious Mental Illness!!!
Identity, two poles apart
Misconstrued and misunderstood like a mirage
Walking with melancholic thoughts in a hostile surround
Reeling with joy carelessly in the limits unbound
Finding nemesis in the thin air of uncertainty
Relinquishing the bottled up illusions in a canopy of dreams
Like puppets of the unprecedented world leave traces of the stalking ghosts
Loneliness, thy fatal companion conjures the violent outboast
Truth, a bizarre lies gallops through a rampant forest
A silhouette untamed, unchallenged controls the mind so torrid
The thunderbolts and the lightning reluctant to cease
Rain of tranquility rescues the mind from the cancerous disease
A world so bright, serene and unruffled, a reality on canvas
Patience and perseverance, the trusted colors to overcome the uncouth past
Boisterous, blasphemous and unabashed the soul quenches a parched mind

Audioslave – Shadow on the Sun (LIVE)
Audioslave – I Am The Highway (Lyrics)
There are a lot of things I love about spring – flowers, thunderstorms, open windows and… veggies being in season! I love eating green beans raw, and springtime is when they get really good – especially here in Wisconsin. They are on my short list to plant in our garden this year, so I can’t wait to try this recipe again with homegrown beans!
We’re always looking for healthy, easy meals to make during the week and if you love beans and salmon, this is something that I would recommend trying!
What You Need
This recipe was for just Casey and myself – using only one pan, and it was the perfect amount of food + leftover veggies! You could make more, but you’d obviously need more than one pan, which would defeat the purpose. 😉
- 2 Salmon filets (mine were marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, crushed basil and…

Shut It, Babe – SketcBook Pro for iPad (2017)
Have you ever met people who always be so fussy about whatever you do? Always think that their opinion is right and makes you feel unsure about what you do?
Sometimes you may hear something like: Why you seem so skinny? Oh are you gaining weight? You never post the picture with him again, are you guys done? Your style is so outdated! That blush color makes your cheeks look chubbier! You want to be an actor? Just enjoy the life you have now, don’t seek something impossible, darling. And… etc.
Wear those unmatched color outfits you like, gain weight, lose weight, get serious, or break up, be an actor/artist/musician do whatever things that suit you well. Their opinion doesn’t matter for you, you have your own choice so don’t let anybody control your decision with their opinion.
Maybe some people are…
