How I’m Dealing With Quarantine

I recently spoke with one of my sisters and I was telling her that I was trying to look at this whole “stay-at-home” thing as “cocooning”. You know…….where I do all these beauty treatments, take really good care of myself and then emerge from my cocoon after all this is […]

Mental Focus Over 50

Mental Focus Over 50

This is a sponsored post by Perceptaยฎ, but all opinions are my own. At 50, combating energy levels and focus are some of my top priorities (because age just keeps on giving, doesn’t it?). I don’t know if it was from hormones or stress or age- or all of the above, […]
