Sun Protection Basics

Summer is here which means the temperatures are warmer and the sun is stronger than ever.  I have to admit, I took sun protection for granted for a really long time.  I wouldn’t wear sunscreen and would just assume that because I already have darker skin, that I wouldn’t burn or be affected.  Well that…

Travel: How To Pack a Carry-On

When it comes to packing, I have to say that I’ve developed my own Marie Kondo-esque system.  I used to be that girl who had to take a massive suitcase with her anytime she got on a plane.  Whenever I returned home, I realized I didn’t use or wear HALF of what I had taken…

Recipe: Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

There are some recipes that are, for a lack of a better word, intimidating.  I avoid these recipes mainly because if I mess it up then I really don’t want to have to go down to Subway and settle for a sandwich.  Pulled pork has been one of those intimidating recipes for me because you…
