Happiness is never too far from where you can find gratitude. Luckily, there’s always something to be thankful for in our lives. The thing is, it’s not always easy to find something to appreciate and be grateful about. On bad days when all we can seem to focus on is everything that’s going wrong or […]

It’s been more than a year since the world first went on a lockdown which we all thought would last six weeks, at most. Some borders and businesses have since reopened, but we’re still a long way from reclaiming our normal lives.
Have you ever taken a day off only to find yourself wracked with guilt for not actually doing anything? And to top it all off, you never quite managed to get into the mood to relax after all?

At the rate 2020 is going, the prospects for getting a fresh start once the new year comes have never been more appealing. You’ve probably lost count of how many times you’ve promised yourself and your friends you’d do all sorts of fun, crazy things once this pandemic is over.
If the year 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we can never truly plan for the future. Life will always have curveballs we can’t prepare for, so perpetually chasing a mythical future where you’d be living a life you love may not be the best idea. People have wasted their best years living halfheartedly in […]

What makes Mondays doubly dreadful is having to trade your cute, cozy, plushie-filled room in exchange for drab computers and cold desks that speak nothing of your fun personality. Well, regardless if you’re studying or already working, there’s always a way to bring a little bit of you into your desk in order to avoid […]
Celebrating the art of coffee (and tea) does not end with finding the perfect bean/leaf, discovering the perfect brew, or finding the perfect machine for your home brewing needs. Coffee-making is fun and exciting, but nothing beats finally sitting down to enjoy your brew, especially if you have a collection of adorable mugs to pour […]
“Never buy a piece of art that you don’t have to have. You know, don’t worry about who the artist is or how much it’s worth. I mean, you have to live with it every day. You have to walk by it every day. You have to really love it; you have to really appreciate […]
