How a Ceiling Fan Keeps You Healthy

Summer days are filled with fun and adventure. But those hot summer nights can be fairly miserable when you’re trying to get to sleep. Even sleeping with only a sheet can leave you tossing and turning in discomfort. We don’t want to blast our air conditioning on high every night– it’s a waste of energy and money. What can we do to stay cool without harming the planet or paying a fortune?

We Need Our Sleep!

As you already know, we all need a good night’s sleep to lead happy, healthy and active lifestyles. The amount of sleep we need, however, varies by age.

Dude – K-beauty is taking. OVER. (oh yeah um #giveaway)

Did you guys see my post about how I’m obsessed with K-pop idols? Since then, my obsession has grown to everything Korean: K-drama, gochujang, and of course, K-Beauty!

French women have many enviable qualities. First, there’s that effortless chic-and-sexy they pull off – HOW? Then there’s the well-known fact that they seem to stay slim despite a diet consisting of 90% buttered croissants and Beaujolais Nouveau. What gives?

Even more disgustingly, they stay lovely and young-looking for ages. Maybe the French philosophy behind their skincare is to credit for this; French women have famously indulged their skin in luxurious products and treated it like handsewn lace for centuries.
