The Ultimate List of the Best Millennial Blogs

Every generation is different, but there’s just something about millennials, right? GEN Y is the largest living generation and they’re making a splash across a variety of mediums. As the first segment to truly embrace the internet, millennials are all over the latest and greatest social media platforms and it’s no surprise that so many millennials (like myself) have started their own blogs.

GEN Y has embraced everything about connecting with people online and using their platforms as a way to share everything from their favorite products to what they’ve been up to in their daily lives.

6 Jobs That Allow You To Work Remotely and Travel More

6 Jobs That Allow You To Work Remotely and Travel More

Raise your hand if you love to travel! You obviously can’t see my hand, but it’s reaching toward the ceiling. I’ve shared on my blog time and time again that traveling is one of my favorite things to do. Travel is truly the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. There are so many things out there to do and experience.

Every year I make a list of the places that I want to travel to and then I search far and wide on the internet to determine if there are any deals for the destinations that I have in mind. If I find a decent deal, I’m definitely not opposed to booking it and turning my travel dreams into a reality.

3 At-Home Workouts to Help You Get in Shape for Summer

3 At-Home Workouts to Help You Get in Shape for Summer

Summer is so close I can almost taste it! This is the time of year that I get excited for longer days and warmer weather. I love spending time outside and just having more sunshine in general, so I’m definitely counting down the days until Memorial Day (because we all know that that’s the unofficial start of summer). With better weather around the corner, it won’t be long until it’s time to break out the shorts, t-shirts, tank tops and bathing suits. If you’ve been thinking about starting an at-home workout routine to get ready for the upcoming season, then keep reading!

The Best Travel Size Products to Keep in Your Carry-On Bag

The Best Travel Size Products to Keep in Your Carry-On Bag

I'm a huge fan of traveling light and packing my things in carry-on bags. Being able to bypass the airline ticket counter, bag check lines and the baggage claim area at the airport is a major plus. I also love knowing where my things are at all times and having my essentials handy in case I need anything while waiting at the airport or while on board a long flight. 

Since I've become accustomed to packing my things into carry-on bags I've had the chance to test out a lot of travel size products. Before each business trip or vacation I take, I raid the travel size aisle at the store and stock up on my favorite products. I could write a whole separate post focusing on the makeup I pack when traveling, but for purposes of this post I'm going to be focusing on facial, body and hair products. All of these items are products that'll help you get through either a short or long flight. If you need to freshen up while you're on the plane, you can just reach into your bag and pull out any of these items.

9 Ways to Spend Your Lunch Break

9 Ways to Spend Your Lunch Break

Whether you work in an office environment or from home, chances are that you aim to take a break during lunch time, right? I look forward to my lunch hour every day since it gives me an opportunity to take a step back from my work and focus on something else for a while. Sometimes it’s good to just take a break and start working right where you left off with a clear mind.

I’ve been a working professional for almost six years now and I’ve spent my lunch hour in a variety of different ways. During my first job right out of college, I always made it a point to leave the office during lunch. Sometimes I ate lunch in my car just because I wanted to get away from my desk and listen to the radio. Nowadays, I spend my lunch break either at my desk catching up on emails, at the gym for a quick cardio session or I even go out with coworkers.

The Best Black Boots for Fall and Winter

The Best Black Boots for Fall and Winter

If there’s one thing I wear from the start of fall to the end of winter, it’s boots. Living in Michigan, boots are a necessity since we have brisk falls and cold winters. While I wear sneakers and flats in the spring and summer, my fall and winter wardrobe tends to revolve around boots.

My friends at San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) sent me their Duchess Boots and I absolutely love them. They’re perfect for fall and winter since you can dress them up or dress them down. The boots are so comfortable and they have a really simple design so they’d look great with a dress and tights or with jeans and a sweater (which is how I decided to style them for today’s blog post).
