soap

Soap making is a lot easier (and cheaper!) than you think. Sure, there are many ingredients, supplies, steps, and precautions involved, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to make soap with your eyes closed (although not literally)! Don’t believe me? Just take a look at this picture: When I took up the ridiculously frugal hobby of soap making last year, […]

negative people4

Life is short, so why waste time worrying about the negative Nellies, Debbie downers, green-eyed monsters and chronic criticizers in your life? You deserve to be happy. You don’t need to be around anyone who stresses you out or makes you feel bad about yourself. If you allow yourself to be put down, held back, or affected by a negative person in your life, it’s […]

flower-pots

A common misconception about gardening is that it requires a big backyard and a lot of money. That’s why a lot of people, namely city dwellers on a tight budget, shy away from growing their own food. If you’re one of them, we have good news for you: You can certainly grow your own food with a teeny-tiny balcony (or indoor space near a window) […]

gossip

Let’s face it: we all love to gossip. It’s fun, irresistible, and… so wrong. It’s so wrong that some of us actually try to keep our lips sealed to avoid hurting the people being gossiped about. However, even the most virtuous among us can’t help but perk up our ears whenever a new piece of juicy gossip surfaces. Even though gossiping can be so bad […]

coworkers

Did you know that if you have a full-time job, you spend at least 50% of your waking hours at work? That doesn’t even include commuting to work, thinking about work, and stressing about work. Kind of depressing, isn’t it? Now, think about your coworkers. You spend a good chunk of your day with these people. How do you feel about that? Are you okay […]

bikers

Have you ever seen Catwoman? It’s an arguably cheesy 2004 spin-off of the Batman film series featuring Halle Berry playing an ordinary woman who gains cat-like powers after running into some trouble. At one point, Halle Berry’s character, who has probably never ridden a motorcycle before in her life, jumps on a random Ducati Monster and immediately rips through the streets, maneuvering the bike like […]

dating

Got your eye on an amazing girl, but too nervous to sweep her off of her feet? If the very thought of asking her out on a date makes you hyperventilate, you came to the right place. We’re here to show you how even the shyest person can muster up enough confidence and charm to ask a girl out… and get a “yes”. Asking a […]

breakup

Breaking up is tough. In fact, a break up can be so devastating that it incurs ill feelings, overwhelming loneliness, and the desire to stay in bed all day with a tub of moose tracks ice cream. If you’re going through a traumatic break up, rest assured that you’re not alone. In fact, you’re far from alone. Many hearts are broken every day, and many […]

parents2

Here’s a quick joke: A young man goes into a drug store to buy condoms. The pharmacist asks how many condoms the young man wants. “Well,” the young man says. “I’ve been seeing this girl for a while. I’m meeting her parents for the first time tonight, and I’ve got a feeling I’m gonna get lucky after that. Once she’s had me, she’ll want me […]

snow driving

We just learned some alarming news. Santander, an insurance company located in the United Kingdom, just conducted a study and discovered that 25% of drivers have gotten in a car accident due to snowy or icy conditions. That’s one out of four drivers! Driving in the snow is dangerous and not for the faint of heart. The safest way to drive in bad winter weather […]
