It's full of new hopes and new challenges! If you're like me, I am pretty sure you want to kick off the month feeling fine ma meh! But we all have busy days, I-want-to-stay-in-bed days, and I don’t-know-what-the-hell-i-am-doing-today days.

5 non-negotiables of a 30-year-old

So, finally, 30 happened to me! Raise your glass to all the 87 borns out here! We’ve come far!

So by this time, after my 40-day detoxifying challenge that me clinging on for dear life up to about 18 days, and my inconsistent work out routine, (Yes they seem to change almost every week, too much of this or too little of that), you know I’ve come to the conclusion that I have been stressing for nothing really.
