    The Best Photo/Video Editor Apps I am Using Now

    By now, it’s clear that creating great visual content is critical for everyone who wants to make a living on social media. Especially using Instagram to gain the social influence. Instagram has doubled its monthly active user base in the last two years, which means a lot more people are viewing and sharing photos in 2018. Plus, visual content is 40X more likely to get shared on social media than other types. And what I have learned from this year, is video will be the future! Ok, now I am done with the serious talk. It’s time to discover some fun apps that can make our life so much easy…

    Being The Best Of Me || Improve My Emotional Fitness

    Physical fitness is easy to see from the mirror, or a scale and if you want to work on this try beginner tennis lessons. But emotional fitness is quite hard to see so it makes it difficult to manage. I thought I have done so much work on myself the past two years, and I am pretty good at understanding and managing my emotions. But the holiday brings so much mixed emotions and I was surprised by how emotional I was, again! I hosted our annual family Thanksgiving dinner at my house. We had great food like usual and a great time hanging out with my step-kids, especially my two…

    How to Get a Stranger to Take Great Photos (of you!)

    My late husband was my personal photographer. So after he passed away, I had to find whoever that is available to take my photos. I usually plan ahead of time to ask my step-daughter, or a few friends to help me with during the weekends. Then I started my solo travel journey and I realized that my selfie skills are so limited. In order to get some great photos, I have to learn to ask strangers to take photos of me. As you can imagine, it was not easy at the beginning. What if they say no? What if they are bad people? What if they drop my camera and…

    There’s a reason the athleisure trend has exploded in popularity: people want convenience and comfort with style, and sporty fashion is the answer.

The fact is everyone can pull it off if you know a few key tricks. 😉 Of course wearing sneakers with everything is the first thing came to your mind probably. It is the easiest way to do sporty chic. But I like to use other sporty style pieces to achieve this goal. Just like in this look, I use the sporty…

    NeoStrata ||Powerful Anti Aging Skincare Products Taking Years Off My Appearance

    This post is sponsored by NEOSTRATA, but all the opinions are my own. In my last post, I shared with you My New Anti-Aging Secret ||NEOSTRATA Dermatologist Developed Skincare Brand. So I have been using NEOSTRATA for a little bit over one month. It’s time to reveal the results! Drum roll, please! Lol! Before we get started, it’s important you know that my assistant is also my photographer. She took the “before” photos a few weeks ago before I started using NEOSTRATA. Last week we shot the “after” photos and were both happily surprised by the comparisons. We noticed my skin looks more youthful overall. My face looks lifted and…

    Being The Best Of Me || Focus On What I Want

    Everybody knows we need to focus on what we want. But the reality is we often focus on what we DON’T want. Last week, I was invited to an event in a nearby city in Michigan. The night before my trip when I chatted with a friend, I said something like this ” Let’s see how long it will take me to get there since I always get lost.” My friend pointed out to me “Be positive!” I suddenly realized that my energy focused on what exactly I don’t want!! Why am I doing this?! It kept me thinking. Later on, I think I found my answer. The fears of…

    Soma’s 12 Days of PJ’s Sweepstakes Day 11 || Say Yay to Pajama Day!

    This post is partnered with Soma, but all the opinions are my own. I’m being lazy today. I’m staying in my PJ’s because I decided it’s pajama day for me. Lol! There is only one and a half month left for 2018. I set a few goals at the beginning of this year, and one of them is to take care of myself physically, mentally and spiritually. Last year I came to the conclusion that I am only able to give more love to this world while I am at the best with myself. Otherwise, I don’t have much love to offer. Being a woman, we often define ourselves as…

A.K. Rikk’s is the rare business that has all the right personality traits! If you asked me about A.K. Rikk’s two weeks ago, my reaction probably would have been “Who? What?” Lol!

    Being The Best Of Me || Taking 100% Responsibility For My Life

    This past April I started my soul searching journey. It all started me wanting some answers about why I lost my husband and what happens after a person passes away? I have been listening to spiritual and motivational Youtube videos every morning since then, and that is how I got familiar with Jack Canfield’s work. I took his ten-day challenge online course and loved it so much, so I signed up for one day workshop in Denver. During this workshop last month, I also signed up for a one year program with him called Train the Trainer. I am so excited to learn more from him and give a more…
