Top 5 All Natural Deodorants That Actually Work

I switched to all natural deodorant over 4 years ago and haven’t looked back. Don’t make the mistake I did and assume you can just stop using anti-perspirant , aluminum filled deodorant cold turkey with no consequences. Sure, you can just stop using that crappy deodorant for 4-6 weeks and let your armpits naturally detox, but you risk offending those around you during that time of no deo . You can also just immediately switch to using a natural deodorant, but most people report the natur...

This Chic Workout Collection Is Designed By Women — & It Shows

Serious question: What if workout clothes could offer both functionality and fashion? Sure, there’s athleisurewear, but often the look skews too sporty for many formal spaces, like offices and restaurants. Other times, athleisure is styled with too many other fashion pieces that the outfit isn’t really meant to be worked out in. While athleisure appears to be purposeful in theory, it’s rare that one singular look can truly take you from day to night, from studio to street, from (workout) class ...

Be a Better Friend to a Girlfriend who has lost a Parent

For many of us, it’s already happened. We’ve experienced the loss of a parent and/or have girlfriends who have. Sad situations sometimes make it tough to be a better friend. How can we be a better friend when a friend’s parent passes away? First, keep in mind that It’s especially tough on our friend because, generally, she’s known her parent all her life. She’s never experienced life without that person in it – that’s a unique experience and a milestone in her life. Sometimes that puts her as...

Want Longer Natural Hair? 5 Expert-Approved Ways To Maximize Growth

In a perfect world, we'd do the big chop on a Saturday and wake up with coils down to our waist by Tuesday. But the way hair growth (and shrinkage) is set up, that's a distant, impossible dream. And waiting for inches to appear brings a new meaning to the phrase, "trying my patience.""Generally, hair grows about half an inch per month," says Yolanda Lenzy, MD, of Lenzy Dermatology in Massachusetts. And unfortunately, there's not much you can do to speed things up, because genetics are the main ...

A Corporate Confession on Grumbling

Photo by Ismael Paramo on Unsplash My church is currently 25 sermons into a series on Exodus. It’s been amazing. Each week we’ve been reminded what a mighty deliverer God is for his people. No situation, however dire, comes close to challenging his ability to rescue. Enslaved by the most powerful ruler in the world? No problem. Fearing the angel of death? Just put some blood on your doorpost. Trapped between an approaching army and a shoreline? Watch God work. Uncertain about what ...

You Are Just Fine the Way You Are

--> I was sitting in a sales seminar several months ago and a well known sales trainer got up and started speaking to the audience. He is considered by many to be one of the best salespeople in America, and I was hanging on his every word. The man was describing how he went into meetings in corporations to sell things, and how he always was able to close. His entire strategy was based on what he called “finding the pain.” “You need to find the pain! You need to find the pain!” he kept shouting a...

4 Things You Should Do With Extra Money ASAP

Thinking about the long term is hard, especially when it comes to finances, but life does get easier the earlier you start laying...

6 Fresh Color Trends To Consider For Spring
