Guest Post: Gill Murray’s Food Photography Hacks for Instagram Worthy Images with Your Smartphone - Instagram has become more than a fun place to share photos. It has become a community.

How to Stay Healthy & Happy While Travelling - Travelling is wonderful. But if you get sick in any way while there or right after you get back, not so fun. Some of this can be attributed to jet lag and recycled air on the plane. But over the years I’ve realized that the biggest reason much of the above happens is that while …

#12 Days of Hygge – Day 7: Date Night In - The Brit recently sent me a link to a Time Magazine clip that was on their Facebook page about hygge.
