The garden hose was a hair salon, an exotic waterfall, a drinking fountain, a source of ammo (for birthday water balloons), an outdoor shower or a stream running down a mountain. As a kid, the garden hose was an asset to my play time. It’s where Barbie swam, where my cousin and I rinsed off …

10 Summer Time Beauty Hacks

In the summer, I try to balance a less rigorous beauty routine with a more rigorous skin care regimen.

It’s summer– this means salt water, sun burns, swim suits and sunsets. During the summer, my beach bum/pirate/mermaid/princess identity is in full force.

Sometimes, in a moment of reflection, I'll compare my current relationship to a previous one. I'll remember a strange interaction with an ex and wonder how in the world I didn't immediately dump the guy. It's hard not to self-criticize when you look back at some of your self-defeating actions. However, in the end, he was the one that was being an insecure and cruel person.

I don’t have an outdoor garden…yet. I make do with some wonderful sunlight that shines through the large windows in our living room. I also use the kitchen window for my cooking herbs. While I dream about my own little plot of land, I also cherish my indoor plants, especially my potted Aloe Vera. Aloe …
