A Month to Remember: February 2020

It’s not very often I experience a month that is bookmarked by heartbreak and/or tragedy, but here we are. While not every day can be a picture of perfection- and every month any of us have ever made it through has had it’s fair share of bad days- February 2020 felt like it dragged on […]

When researching health and wellness trends for 2020 to keep me on track for my goals/resolutions for the year ahead (and to help me avoid potential scams, fad or flash-in-the-pan diets/products, etc.) one mood-boosting accessory really grabbed my attention: rainbow-tinted sunglasses. Now, growing up in New England- I am no stranger to the hazards of […]
