25 Frugal Ways to Treat Yourself A few weeks ago, I found myself downright grumpy and irritable one evening. I was sore all over from an intense workout and running on only a few hours sleep.

Hola! My fiancé and I just returned from Mexico City two weeks ago and I can still feel the excitement of the city. Not only did I fall in love with Mexico, it was also my first international trip with my fiancé and our first trip since our engagement. While in Mexico City, we celebrated both our recent engagement and love of food by eating at Pujol, a world-renowned restaurant headed by ...
