Active Tuesdays: How the Fitbit Changed my Lifestyle

Most of the posts on Tuesdays were about travel but the Active Tuesday category is generally about being active in life.

#DeepThursdays: Your Living List (Aka: Bucket List)

Everyone should have a bucket list. Now the meaning behind the phrase is a bit dark because it basically means to make a list of things you’d like to do before kicking the bucket (dying). That’s a bit dark but my husband now calls it a living list, or something along those lines. So now it’s a list of things you want to do while you’re alive. Far more positive, yeah?

Artsy Wednesdays: Mandala Painting

Mandalas have been a trend for quite some time now. There are coloring books and textiles with all sorts of mandalas,..there are even apps that allow you to make your own mandalas without having to repeat each motif.
