Although this might sound strange, but water is not your best friend when you are trying to preserve your homemade beauty products. Bacteria love a wet and damp atmosphere and so does yeast and mold. However, the catch is, many beauty recipes are water based. Think of those with aloe vera gel, witch hazel extract, tea or water infusions, etc. So, when you have to use water, make sure that you use either distilled or boiled water. When using the latter, allow it to cool completely before you add it to any recipe. For aloe vera gel, hydrosols or witch hazel extract, it is better to refrigerate them. Doing so will ensure that they have a longer shelf life. A good idea is to go for smaller batches when you are using water-based recipes. Apart from ensuring that you reduce the chances of the products going bad, you will also have the satisfaction of using a fresher product, and that’s no mean satisfaction at all!
Having a credit card is also convenient while traveling, especially when credit card only perks across the world are in the mix. These perks come into play when you choose a credit card. This is why it is so important to read the contracts that you sign. There are often so many perks that are involved with rewards credit cards that a company may not outwardly show you, so that they do not have to deliver on their end, since they rely on people not reading the fine print. Read the fine print and ask questions. Go to your bank and come with a list of questions for the credit card that you are interested in applying for. If you are unable to go into your bank, call your bank. Do not let anything stop you from asking the questions that you need to ask in order to make the most of your credit card decision.

Every relationship is different and has its own sets of needs so there is no one size fits all answer here. I cannot tell you what is best for your relationship. It really comes down to the two of you sitting down to figure out the wisest path for your future. There are many factors to consider; finances, work, children, family, rented and/or owned property, healthcare, and so on. One great way to begin to figure out what’s best for you is couple’s therapy. If you’re able to afford therapy, consider talking through all of your decisions in therapy which will help you see what you are emotionally ready for as well. Because it’s not just a physical, tangible decision. This decision will affect you mentally and emotionally as well.

What’s great about social media is that we can create our safe space. There is a lot that we can control. The same can be said for taking a step back and examining your presence in all of this. When taking a social media detoxification, you set the perimeters for how you’d like to go about taking that break. Nobody knows what you need during this break from social media more than you. Do you need your weekly activity to drop to zero on all platforms? Do you find that one or two platforms have been particular challenges to positively engage in? Do you find that it is more enjoyable and manageable to cruise through social media only in the mornings, during your lunch hour, the evenings, or only on the weekend? Nobody can tell you what kind of detox that you need to take because nobody knows your social media habits better than you. I will say that you will get what you put into this exercise. So you have to be honest with yourself.
