The gaming industry has become massive, and every year for the last five years I’ve been going to a three-day conference that focuses solely on that. There’s so much to do, explore and see at this conference that you can easily spend three days. With tickets for this year currently being sold, I wanted to give you a taste of what you can expect to see if you go! The video included with this article is what happened when I went last year.
This month I have searched the internet for some of the coolest things in regards to love. This contains articles from everything from the history of lingerie, to how well the Welsh know how to spoon! So even if you didn’t find this month particularly romantic, perhaps you’ll find it a bit more educational.
I rarely schedule trips to the spa. The last time I had a real massage was a chair massage at the mall, and I think my tight neck muscles frustrated my masseuse. However, my recent day of indulgence taught me a lot about myself and how I view my needs.
To have the time to explore my issues with relaxing, I scheduled a full day at Santa Barbaras Salt Cave Spa. While this location is in beautiful California, I hope this post inspires you to seek a spa near you!
I had this idea while playing around with Snapchat and wishing I had a better background than a blank wall. While this did require some supplies and time to create, it looks amazing and can really perk up any room. I currently have it brightening up my mantel (yes that’s my wedding photo in the picture!), but I’ve also had it as wall decor in my office!
I LOVE scrubs. Here in Massachusetts, the cold winters can really make your skin dry so I’m always on the lookout for luxurious scrubs to use. This one is PERFECT for Valentine’s day and it only contains three products so it’s really easy to make!
When I think of February, I think of Valentine’s, and that means love. Usually, that love comes in the form of candy or cards from others, but more and more people are starting to understand that we need to be able to love ourselves before we can be stable enough to love someone else. So what does that even mean? Last year I wrote THIS article for basic self-love ideas, but this year I tried something different. I decided to go on a spiritual retreat, and this is how it went!
Welcome to Five Fabulous Finds. This is a once a month post where I bring you five interesting (and possibly unrelated) things I’ve found while scanning the internet that I think you all either might like to read or buy! The focus here is for January so if you’re looking for some topics to check out while you wait out a snowstorm or warm up by a fire, this is the place!
I LOVE New Years’ Eve and Day. I would even go as far as saying it’s my favorite holiday because it’s a great time to look at your life and make some really awesome plans for your 365 days ahead. HOWEVER, it’s so easy to take planning a better life to such a crazy level of perfection that it becomes easy to fail, and feel bad about that! Today’s post is about a book I read that really had a major impact to how I view myself and my life. This book taught me a level of compassion for myself that I think everyone really needs to cultivate especially if you’re a perfectionist like me.
The holidays are over! This might come as a relief for some of you. There’s a new problem though, what to do with all that extra space left behind from your Christmas decorations. While I could honestly write a book about decorating after the holidays, I’m going to show you a small design that can work on your dining room table, above your mantel or on your coffee table. It’s warm and inviting and will hopefully fill in some of those gaps.
Winters in Boston can be intimidating. You know what else can be intimidating? Finding a great place to eat in Chinatown. Don’t get me wrong, Boston’s Chinatown has TONS of great places with really beautiful authentic food, but every city has it’s hidden gems, and Boston is no different.
This place is a bit small. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked straight past it. So if you’re tired of being stuck inside to escape the cold, and want someplace new and fun to check out, you can’t go wrong with Shojo!
