Treat Yourself with a DIY Spa Day

This post brought to you by Pure Silk Shave Cream. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Mostly Morgan. Summers used to mean lazy days and pool floats, but this year I’ve got my first “big girl” job in the city and so I’ve been working long days and coming home to do more work for my own personal projects. I love my internship and keeping up with my blogs, but every now and then I just need to slow down, unwind, and destress. I usually don’t feel myself getting overwhelmed until it’s too late so I’ve been sure to work self-care…

6 Things You Learn When You Move to New York.

I am going to be talking a lot about my move to New York in coming posts because, really, how could I not? My life has definitely taken an unexpected (and exciting!) turn, and every post idea I’ve brainstormed up as of late has something to do with the move. Today I’ve teamed up with Dove to talk about 6 things nobody warned me about before moving to the city. I was told all about spotting Craigslist scams and finding the best food (there are vegetarian restaurants as far as the eye can see, y’all!), but there were a lot of important things…

Get Fit for Spring from Home!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Les Mills. The opinions and text are all mine. I’m all about promoting healthy living for a happy life.

After going away to college I fell out of my fitness routine for a few months, and while I didn’t gain the dreaded freshman fifteen, I did lose the muscle tone I had spent years developing. Fast forward to now,…

Self Care while Self Employed

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sunsweet Growers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. In the last few weeks I’ve been getting a true taste of self-employment. For the first time in my life I’m not in school and so there is no automatic structure to my life. Rather than following a set schedule I have been making my own rules, and that’s something that can be really dangerous. It would be so easy to fall into a cycle of laziness and Netflix binges, which are usually paired with bad decisions elsewhere (namely sleep and diet.) I…

Healthy Hair Hacks – Caring for Dry Hair.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sally Beauty. All opinions are 100% mine. Not too long ago I had hair to my waist and I was obsessive about keeping it healthy. Fourteen inches later my hair is a lot less prone to damage, but I’m still very picky about the products I use to take care of it. I’ve logged hours researching hair care on YouTube, forums, and other blogs. I’m not a professional, but I’d consider my knowledge to be pretty darn close. While I am selective about what I put on my hair I’m…
