Everywhere I go in San Francisco, I see women dressed in athleisure wear.
They’re sporting the latest yoga pants and cute moisture-wicking tanks. Why
are these women wearing this type of clothes and where are all these people
going' My guess is to work out, and likely not just any workout, but to
attend a boutique studio. ...
A few years ago, you wouldn't have believed how bad I was at cooking. I
didn't even know how to sauté onions! Not only that, I wasn't really
interested in learning how to either. It's not that I don't like eating (I
do!), but the process of cooking didn't appeal to me. I could just go to
the store or a restaurant to buy whatever food I wanted when I wanted it,
With spring just around the corner, we’re heading into wedding season. That
means brides- and grooms-to-be are in getting into full planning mode. It’s
exciting to think about and plan your big day. What’s not so exciting is
the price tag goes with it. The average wedding in the US cost $35,329 in

It’s Wednesday afternoon. You’ve already eaten your leftovers from last
weekend, so you have to cook tonight. You still have a lot to get done at
work before you head to the grocery store and try to put something together
for dinner. Thinking about how much time it takes to shop, prepare a meal,
eat, and wash dishes, you see yourself running around for another few
hours. You might not relax until 8 pm at ...
I know you hear it at the start of every year: you need a budget! The
nagging gets tiring, even if you know or think you need one. Budgets have a
bad connotation. They’re restrictive, inflexible, complicated,
time-consuming, and difficult to keep. They don’t allow for any fun. And
how are you supposed to know what will come up in the future' Your income
and expenses may fluctuate. ...
