18 Gifts For The Harry Potter Obsessed!


I’ve personally read all the Harry Potter books about three times, and I’m currently listening to the audiobooks while I work out each day. (It’s been a great motivator; it’s hard to get off the treadmill when there’s an intense round of Wizard’s Chess happening) I’ve been a fan from day one and I know there are other Potterheads like me who will love these fun and unique gifts!

10 Adult Coloring Books to Help You Relax


You’ve no doubt seen and heard this enormous fad that is adult coloring — it’s everywhere. It turns out, there’s tons of research supporting the mental health benefits behind it. I have to say, as someone who has worked with children for almost ten years, and an avid colorer, I can attest to the relaxation that comes from it!

Dana Dovey writes in Medical Daily “Research shows this form of therapy often has tangible results. One 2006 study, for example, found that mindfulness art therapy for women with cancer helped to significantly decrease symptoms of physical and emotional distress during treatment. Another study from the same year concluded that after only one hour of art therapy, adult cancer patients of all ages “overwhelmingly expressed comfort” and a desire to continue with the therapy.” (read the full article here)

The Easiest Side Hustle Ever_ I Made $300 Last Month in Truly Passive Income

I am always SO skeptical when people offer “side hustles” because I have found that a lot of times it ends up being a lot of work for very little pay or the opportunity just doesn’t pan out in general and I’ve gotten my hopes up for nothing. credit-card-2761073_1280

I have tried surveys for hours, reselling gently used items online, and countless other little side jobs that never worked out for me. Until I started this blog, I was spiraling into side hustle hell where I was so desperate to try anything but was constantly disappointed. This blog has helped me branch out a lot, and while I haven’t made a profit from this blog in particular yet, I’m hoping it’ll get there eventually!

However, I did finally find one side hustle that has actually been successful to me. Last month, I made $350 and was able to pay off two of my smaller credit card balances completely! It’s only the 7th of the month as I’m writing this, and I’ve already got $45 waiting to be paid out at the end of this month as well. HOW??

Make a Truly Passive Income While Driving Your Car _ How I Made $300 Last Month.png

I am currently six months pregnant, and I have been missing a lot of things the last half-year, but I have to say, one of the things I miss the most is my wine. I was a one or two glasses three nights a week, kind of wine-o and it’s been a very long 25 weeks without it.
