Saving Your Sanity: When Is It Time To Find A Job You Love?

If you suddenly lost all of your memories and were suddenly placed among a group of people talking about their lives, you’d notice something. The number of people complaining about certain things would seem startlingly high. In particular, there would be almost half of the people there talking about their jobs. As a rule, people do a lot of complaining about the work they do – no matter their field of work.

It would be easy then, for the newly memory-free you to assume that people like to complain, or that work is a miserable process. That’s how we often talk about it. So that we can pay the bills and fund our leisure time, we get our heads down, deal with the difficulties and the stresses. And then, when we’re not at work, we blow off steam. But does it have to be like that?

To some extent, we have to take up whatever is on offer to allow us to live our lives. But we can’t permanently be wage slaves and so, sometimes, we need to look beyond that treadmill. Setting up your own business, or moving into a job in a chosen field, may be tricky. But it might also be the way to save your sanity.

5 Ways to Save Money When You’re On a Budget

Saving money can be really hard. However, it is one of those goals that are attainable if you exercise self-discipline. Whatever you decide to save money for, you should first have a plan. This plan should include both your short and long-term saving goals. It should also include the amount of money you hope to save, your budget and anything else related to your goal of saving money. Saving money can be frustrating. My advice to you is don’t get discouraged while you’re trying to save money. A lot of times you might not get to save the desired amount you might want each month but you should never give up. I can tell you from experience that when I was trying to save money earlier this year a lot of times, I had to dip into my savings for a car emergency or to pay a bill. Back in April, I didn’t even put money into my savings account because I had to get new tires. It happens but the most important thing I did was never giving up.Saving Money View Post

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

The Nordstrom Sale has started and so far I am loving so many of the pieces they have on sale this year. I have to say the pieces this year are so much better than last year, especially the boots. This sale is literally the best sale of the year in my opinion of course. My life has been so hectic recently, so this sale is definitely making my day. I recently moved to Florida and for the past month, I have been so busy. I’ve been so busy that I’ve neglected my blog lol! That’s how crazy my life has been. Nordstrom SaleImage Source

One of my favorite is this cowl neck shift dress. I have been obsessing over them, since I find shift dresses so flattering on a curvy girl. I am also in love with these lace up flats. Don’t you just love the lace up flats trend this season. Now these ankle skinny jeans from Topshop are just perfect. I love that they come in the color stone! Since I had Early Access, I splurged and bought this gorgeous dress and since I live in Florida now, it’s so perfect for the weather down here. I also ordered these boots for the Fall. Don’t worry they’re open toed so I’m not going to be too hot. I’m also going to order some new workout clothes that I’ll link below. This Nordstrom Sale is filled with so many great pieces that you should definitely stock up on. Are you shopping during the Nordstrom Sale? If you are I would definitely love to see your pictures and sale guides. View Post

Any who, today I wanted to share with you all some of my top ideas for some pretty cool Father’s Day gift. Let’s just hope I don’t procrastinate and wait until the day before to get my dad something lol!

Try This: Yummy Tilapia Mango Salad & A Ranch Avocado Dip

Tilapia Mango Salsa Salad with a Limey Ranch Avocado DipHey guys, guess what I have a brand new recipe for you. I swear, lately, my blog has been slowly transitioning into a food blog because I’ve been sharing so many yummy recipes. I was recently contacted by GoAvo to work with them on a collaboration, where I had to create a dish using one of GoAvo’s avocado spreads. At first I was so nervous about this collaboration because honestly, I’m not a chef and when I cook I literally throw ingredients together and somehow it manages to taste good. Also, I have to confess that some days I just hate cooking and the thought of being in the kitchen just makes me want to scream lol. But after thinking it over I snatched my non-existent weave, (LOL) gave myself a little pep talk and I realized that this would be a fun, creative and yummy experience.  So please enjoy my tilapia mango salsa salad with a ranch avocado dip and chips on the side. Happy Eating and I hope you love this dish as much as I do. View Post
