Preparing To Visit South America: Everything That You Should Know

It’s one of the most incredible places in the world as there are so many incredible countries available for you to visit and explore. A continent that offers incredible diversity, South America has no shortage of amazing places to explore; it’s difficult to imagine that just one continent would allow you to go deep into the Amazon rainforest, climb Patagonia’s snow peaks, and see the incredible wildlife that the Galapagos Islands have to offer.

How A Personal Injury Can Be A Chance To Shine

How A Personal Injury Can Be A Chance To Shine

For many, a personal injury is an obstacle that slows down your performance at many levels; professional, at home, social, and even mental. Sustaining an injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault can dramatically affect both your self-confidence and your abilities to keep track of the latest trends in your field. After an accident, you might experience fear, loneliness, frustration and low self-esteem. The mind can’t cope when the body doesn’t function, and consequently, most people who are incapacitated permanently or temporarily following an accident struggle with depression feelings.

Either way, relationships can be complicated enough already so throw an extra thing into the mix and loving someone with a longstanding health issue can be tricky at times. However, there are ways to make things run as smoothly as possible for you, ensuring that you’re both happy and fulfilled.

The Essentials that You Need for a Winter Camping Trip

The Essentials that You Need for a Winter Camping Trip

Camping is a popular activity. It’s a great way to spend time with your friends and family, away from all the distractions of everyday life. It’s a wonderful chance to bond and reconnect away from technology. Camping is a brilliant way to get back in touch with nature, to learn more about the world around you and to simply get some fresh air and exercise. But, it’s largely seen as a summer activity. Especially if you are camping with younger children.

Connecting With Nature During Your Travels

Connecting With Nature During Your Travels

When most people head away on vacation, they will tend to book a package holiday through a specialist lettings agency. This, of course, can be great. You can land great offers and spend a relaxing week or two lounging around a pool and making use of your chosen hotel’s facilities. However, it can also feel like a waste at times. Part of the joy of visiting a new place is to immerse yourself in its nature. You should aim to see new landscapes and experience things you wouldn’t be able to at home. Here are just a few different ways that you can actively connect with nature during your trips.

Doing the Best With What You’re Given

Doing the Best With What You’re Given

Imagine you’re sitting at work, computer broken because someone accidentally spilt their drink over it with a deadline looming in the next 6 hours. Your workplace is just a small startup and there are no replacement parts, and the only other computer you can use is an old janky laptop with a screen that’s barely held by the hinge. It’s slow, the keyboard is uncomfortable and you’re being pressured by your manager to get your work finished–what do you do?

Think Vegan, Drink Vegan: Ethical Beverages With A Touch Of Fun

If you’ve been living the life of a vegan for a long time, you’ve probably experienced the turmoil which can come with choosing something like a drink.

Of course, though, you want to live an entirely vegan life; not one which is just based around food. To help you out with this, this post will be helping you to find and choose your favorite vegan beverages, while adding a touch of fun to this part of your diet.

Travel Diary Days 52 - 58: Hội An & Hanoi, Vietnam

Travel Diary Days 52 - 58: Hội An & Hanoi, Vietnam

Hội An is a charming town on the central coast of Vietnam. Inside is the well-known "Ancient Town", a beautifully preserved trading port from the 15th to 19th century. The architecture and culture represent the various influences that have created the site, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town area is blocked off to motorists and can only be accessed via foot or bicycle. We rented bikes and rode around in the evening. There are beautiful canals that cut through the streets, and you can see distinct differences in certain areas between Japanese, French, Vietnamse & Chinese influences. There are bridges, soap houses, temples, colonial buildings, and color all around.

Yogi Entrepreneur Part 3: Dreams Actualizing in Costa Rica (+ GIVEAWAY!)

Yogi Entrepreneur Part 3: Dreams Actualizing in Costa Rica (+ GIVEAWAY!)

Hey everyone! This is such an exciting post because literally all of my dreams ever manifested into reality. Pete, Zuko (our black cat) & I are finally in Costa Rica for good! I've talked A LOT on the blog about what I do in Costa Rica, so I won't recap that here but you can check out Part 1 & Part 2 to get caught up! There, I talk about the real estate deal that I was helping to broker, which actually finalized. Pete & I have been hired to manage the property: Hotel Nautilus. For me, it's a very sentimental property, as you will read if you check out Part 1 & Part 2. I will warn you that these series are a bit "wordier" than other posts on the blog. The reason for that is because so many people ask me HOW I get to live the life I live and I want to describe the process vividly. It's about ACTION & HARD WORK, and this series has chronicled some of what went into making this dream come true.

Psst... GIVEAWAY BELOW!

The Fashion of Yoga #8

The Fashion of Yoga #8

Spring & summer looks are in full effect and I'm loving what I'm seeing in the evolution of yoga fashion. Today, I have looks from Jala Clothing, Karma Athletics, Pheel Style & Karma Collective. You'll see the sexiest one-piece that can be worn for yoga, SUP, to surf, swim & more, a classy sweater top that can easily be worn out, a sparkly bra & a lovely mala bracelet stack that's the perfect accessory to wear to the studio & then out.

PLUS, a new tea from Your Tea that I'm in LOVE with! It's divine.

Travel Diary Days 44 - 51: Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) & Vung Tau Beach, Vietnam

Travel Diary Days 44 - 51: Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) & Vung Tau Beach, Vietnam

After our time in Cambodia, we headed to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam for 3 days & Vung Tau Beach for 4 days. We were very excited to see what Vietnam would be like, as we heard various things from travelers along the way (everyone has an opinion to share). I don't want to spoil the story, but overall, Vietnam was our favorite place that we visited! On the next Travel Diary, I'll talk about Hoi An, a charming ancient town that we adored & Hanoi.

This Travel Diary focuses on Ho Chi Minh City, which is still often referred to as Saigon - especially by the locals that we talked to.

I cover about the southern beach town of Vung Tau, which is interesting in it's own way. It was definitely a rich cultural experience. I am confident we will visit Vietnam again and spend more time there exploring.
