If you enjoy wandering outdoors or leading others through nature, you may have noticed a few things…. This activity can require certain skills, some of these skills can be gendered, and it is much more fun to have these experiences where this is an atmosphere of camaraderie rather than competition.
Recently, Gabby Douglas has been under backlash for failing to put her hand against her chest during the national anthem. The same people that have been giving her a hard time about not putting her hand over her chest are the same people that are overly bothered about her edges.
I am a young mother who didn’t get married or have a career first. I am a young mother raising a daughter in a world, trying to finish school to start my career, dealing with relationships and just trying to become a better me.I got an email a few days ago from a young lady name Naomi. She asked me how do I cope with being a young mom in the world of today and how do I cope with my baby daddy? Has he ever cheated on me and what did I do if he did? And what advice do I have for new young mothers?
For those who suffer from excessive oily skin, we all know the trouble and hassle of trying to maintain, well, “non-oily” skin. It took me a few years to finally find what works best for my skin type. I struggled finding a routine that minimizes that unnecessary extra shine that shows up in pictures and the overly greasy face that leaves your make up looking gooey by the end of the day. As someone who lives in Houston, where it practically feels like 100 degrees during the summer and the humidity is at its highest peak, nearly at all times of the day, trying to not look oily is almost impossible.
It is a privilege to be able to take a vacation. In most cases, taking time away from work or time away from our families, both can be very demanding. Once you decide to take the time off, save some to do absolutely nothing. Traveling does not always require a full itinerary. You can still have a fabulous time relaxing.

This article is for those who are confined to a glutenless diet, and are finding it hard to keep up healthy habits. While “going gluten free” has been a fad diet in North America for many years, replacing gluten-laden foods with their wheat-wanting alternatives, can often lead to consuming lots of foods that taste like cardboard, have empty starch calories with no nutrition which convert directly to sugar, and can cause stress and angst about eating out.
Bad relationships are like weeds in a flower bed, you don’t really notice them until the damage has already begun. Weeds are generally plants that have absolutely no redeeming value as far as nutrition is concerned. They tend to compete with flowers for nutrients and space.

In the wake of everything going on in the world today, one must increase consciousness. I am a black woman in a country that is not set up for me. Therefore, I have to make myself knowledgeable about current events in the black communities and support my Kings and Queens. These days all I hear in the streets is, “why is the news not covering this…why are they imprisoning our black brothers…why, why why?” Stop blaming society for the problems in our communities. We are a part of society. Here are tips I use to deal with everyday life in America as an African-American.
Undoubtedly, social media has presented itself as a platform to thrive. Technology has paved ways for human interaction that was once deemed impossible. Through one click, I am able to communicate something that would have taken months to receive thousands of years ago.
There’s so much noise everywhere in our lives. Sometimes, it amounts to just too much stress. The news regularly reports murder, rape, robbery and crime. We work 80 plus hours, some even more.
