Logan & Cove Novosbed Unboxing

If you know me, I love to sleep! Or just laying in my bed so having a mattress that is super comfortable is very important.

3 Step Post Workout Skin Care Routine

This year, I started to take more time to focus on eating better and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. As some of you know, blogging is not my full-time gig.
