Easy Ways to Travel For Less

at

Over the past year, I’ve been checking places off my bucket list. Even with a full-time job and a Journalist’s salary, I manage to travel a lot. Just recently, I’ve gone on two cruises, visited 8 different states, explored North Carolina more, taken numerous road trips, and am planning my next adventure. Traveling is SO important for a person to grow and learn. You gain more…

Friday Favorites: e.l.f. Cosmetics

at

I have LOVED e.l.f. brand makeup for years. e.l.f. makes great products that are affordable and easy to apply. Lucky me: they just opened up an e.l.f. store right around the corner from my home so I had to go check it out.

My 15 Minute Morning Routine

at

Mornings are extremely hard at our apartment. None of us are morning people and we tend to run around like chickens with their heads cut off. I have to be out the door by 8:00 but enjoy sleeping in until the very last minute. After months of dragging my feet out of bed at 6, I just couldn’t do it anymore! I’ve learned how to be ready…

As much as I love my job and new city, I can’t help but miss college!! High Point University gave me the best four years and I’m forever thankful…

Why You Should Get Rid of The Toxic People in Your Life

at

When I was younger, I was a magnet for toxic guys –drug problems, anger problems, cheating problems, commitment problems, etc. I brought them into my life and thought I could change them. Wasn’t there something romantic about fighting for love? So, I bounced out of one unhealthy relationship to the next.I was such a vibrant, happy young woman. They saw that and fed on my personality. Eventually, my…

There is always something to do while on a cruise vacation. Between daily activities, shore excursions, and all the amenities the ship has to offer —you’ll never be bored! In fact, it can be difficult to fit it all in. From the moment I enter the ship, I hit the ground running. Want to make the most out of your cruise vacation? I compiled a bucket-list of things…

How I Stopped Living Paycheck to Paycheck

at

I can’t believe I’ve been at The CW for almost nine months, now! Time flies! And while there have definitely been ups and downs in my financial stability (ex: when I totaled my car on 440), I’ve been able to live comfortably and on my own since graduating from college. Last summer, I was just barely getting by from paycheck to paycheck but I have found a…
