For those of you who watched the Superbowl recently, during the halftime show you may have noticed a strange fellow bouncing around on a tightrope with Madonna:
That "tightrope" is actually called slacklining, and the funny guy is actually Andy Lewis (Sketchy Andy), one of the stars of the sport. Slacklining may be a bit fringe, but after the Superbowl, it'll be more common, and I'm here to explain why everyone should get into it too, for health, balance, and fun. More Here...
I'm currently a college student taking 15 hours. I only go to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am until 3:30pm. I only have 10 minute breaks between each class. I try really hard to eat healthy and work out, but I'm finding that it is very hard to eat something in 10 minutes with nutritional value. Usually I'm stuck eating a fruit snack and an apple or something, which I know isn't enough. I eat a decent sized breakfast before classes as well, but I still find myself hungry an hour or so after my snack.
Do you have any suggestions on what I can eat in this short amount of time that doesn't involve cooking (as I don't carry a microwave in my backpack, of course)? Thanks!
I am currently just having one of those days where everything that can go wrong, is going wrong. After returning from the car repair shop, I just could not wait to kick my shoes off and relax. Well, instead I kicked my shoes off and stepped on a bee. This is the first time I have been stung by a bee in my adult life, and let me tell you I wept like a child. With my mom not here to come to my rescue (downside of moving out), I quickly turned to Google to find a solution to my stinging, swelling toe. Ah Ha! A simple mixture of vinegar and baking soda mixed together to form a paste has relieved both my pain and suffering. This simple straight from the kitchen cabinet solution got me thinking curiously about what other health issues I can use vinegar to fix. Below are a D.I.Y. health remedies that involve vinegar!

This a guest post from Jessica!
Having perfect skin is one the most popular and talked about topics in the beauty world. But what do we mean by perfect skin? Well, the concept is closely aligned to Anti-aging skin care and focuses on the importance of having and maintaining younger looking skin with a healthy and radiant glow.
The reality is that as we get older the aging process has a negative effect on our skin due to the weakening of our bodies natural defenses. This can result in loss of shine, dark circles under the eyes and the appearance of wrinkles.
Anti-aging skin care is all about keeping skin looking younger for longer and retaining the elasticity of the skin so that the appearance is youthful and vibrant. It is also about taking adequate care of your skin to protect it against harmful influences.
Having perfect skin is something which many strive for in their teens. There is good reason for this as the longer we go without taking care of our skin, the more potential there is for skin damage to occur. That is to say, the earlier that an anti-aging skin care regime is implemented, we can say that the skin will look younger and healthier for longer.
However, that is not to say that that it’s ever too late to start looking after your skin and by following the steps in this article it is possible to see a significant improvement in the appearance and health of the skin in only a short time. More Here...
