How to Do a New Year's Reflection In Only 5 Minutes

I love a good reason to reflect, and if you're looking for a quick and easy way to check in with yourself for the new year, I have a great 5-minute formula for you!

While this is a nice way to do a quick reflection before the New Year, I also encourage you to do further journaling (my favorite yearly check-in formula is great if you have 30-60 minutes or so).

Travel-Sized Makeup: Carry-on Essentials (Stowaway Cosmetics Review)

If you're looking for a solution to overpacking when traveling, one of the easiest switches you can do is to pack smaller versions of your everyday items.

T-Mobile International Plan 2016 Review [Travel Hacks Series]
