Since March, a quaint home turned into a business has been getting a ton of press, but not for its design: This business is a cafe that employs former foster kids who have aged out of the system and often have a hard time finding […]
If there’s one thing I’m grateful for in 2019, it is how negative sentiments around female friendships are well and truly on their way out. In the past, we’ve all heard people say cringe-worthy things like “I just get along better with guys because being […]
When I stopped judging my friends, I started really enjoying my life.
We’ve all done it, right?
We’ve looked at the people we care the most about and thought “wtf!”
I’m also guilty of sharing those feelings with others, I think they call it backstabbing. Sure, we all might enjoy a little us weekly type gossip over the latest celeb news- but I’m talking about our most trusted friends and even family.

Guess how much it was going to cost me to get from Dallas to Houston round trip….Over $500. NOPE. I didn’t want to rent a car because I am just shy of 25 and didn’t want to pay extra fees. So I looked into Megabus and Greyhound. I contacted one of my best friends who commutes from Dallas to Austin regularly, asking her for advice. She said to take Vonlane. (more…)
I consider myself a very laid-back person. I don’t like confrontation, and I am usually the first person to try to resolve a conflict between anyone, whether it be my friends or my peers. It’s just the way I am. I don’t believe in being […]
