New Skincare Routine: AMBI Products

Having clear skin is not only attributed to a great daily skin care routine, but largely to what we eat, our water intake, how much sleep we’re getting and how much we’re exercising.

You can make a great smoothie with just a couple of items or by throwing multiple ingredients into the mix. This morning, I made a blueberry, banana, and spinach smoothie. Most days, I choose the bag of mixed frozen fruits for more of …

Are You In Love With Cocaine?

“I’m in love with the coco.” Better yet, “I’m in love with the [cocaine]!” Uh yeah, ridiculous, I know, but somehow no one else seems to think so. Somehow America and the rest of the world made this asinine song soar to the top of the charts. & although some people may have addressed the possible glorification …
