Ultimate Black Friday Shopping Guide

There is less than 3 weeks before biggest shopping frenzy. Are you going out for Black Friday?  I haven’t been out for a few years and since Cyber Monday has picked up…. well I just stay at home. I hear and see how chaotic it can be banging for buck! I will never forget when I stood outside of Best Buy at 3am, waiting for them to open at 6 am to purchase a laptop for my freshman year. I was senior in high school and I was getting a head start on college life. Anyway, the line was wrapped around the building and it was freezing cold. I got into the store to find out that they sold out. LIMITED SUPPLY! Since then I have learned from that fiasco. When I do think about Black Friday I like to start early and plan it out.

I really found a lot of good items when I participate in the frenzy. To avoid the Black Friday headache or …

How To Set Personal Boundaries as Highly Sensitive Person

Do you know what setting boundaries are? Honestly, boundaries was something I became very familiar with in my mid twenties. It was quiet foreign to me before than until I had to learn how important it is to me to protect my energy.  It was right around the time I become more aware of my anxiety triggers, and learning of being empath & highly sensitive person.  I was also afraid to tell people how feel, or speak up for myself and agree with things to avoid disagree. All signs I was lacking setting personal boundaries. To add, working on my blog, taking pictures, obligations, invitations, and expectations. I was stretched out paper thin. After a long day of working, mood changes, doing for others and making sure and such; I was so drained.
