Everything is Love

This post may contain affiliate links; find more information here. I just canceled my Tidal subscription. Real talk, I only signed up because I had FOMO and really wanted to listen to The Carters, “Everything is Love”. I didn’t know when or if it was going to be available on Apple Music, so I just caved in and signed up for the free trial. I love Apple music, but occasionally I get tired of listening to the same thing all the time and the personalized playlists are either HIT or MISS.

Right now in honor of Amazon Prime Day, all new Prime member subscribers to Audible.com can get three months of Audible.com for only $4.95/Month. That’s basically the price of one Starbucks drink a month and it’s a  savings of $10 a month ($30 total!) or like buying 1 month and getting 2 FREE. Audiobooks can often cost $17-$25 each for the most popular books, so this deal is essentially equivalent to what you would pay for…

This post may contain affiliate links; visit this page for more information. Cooking is something I love to do 90% of the time; especially when the weather gets cooler. It’s something about being in a cozy kitchen, mixing up recipes and yummy aromas in the air that gets me excited. Here’s my list 11 ways you can upgrade your kitchen appliances: Nespresso machines – Having a coffee maker is essential; even if you do not drink coffee, chances are you will have a house guest who does, so I love the Keurig for that. But after my recent trip to Chicago, I fell in love with the Nespresso machines. Having multiple espresso options available at home is super convenient. I don’t have a machine yet, but when I purchase one, I’ll probably invite all my friends over to try it out. Electric Milk frother or fancier option http://amzn.to/2ysODsZ Spice Herb Grinder I love to use fresh herbs…
