When it comes to gift buying, men are sometimes hard to buy for. Why? Well, it's sometimes because they aren't forthcoming about what it is they want. They might say they don't want anything, or they might reply with those fateful words "I will let you know." Such words are hardly useful when Christmas or their birthday is right around the corner.

New Fragrance Release: Lottie Moss

Disclosure: I received a complimentary product or discount code to use towards purchase. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

I've been on a fragrance kick for the last couple of years. I built up a little much-loved collection, sold most of it after finding out my teen was allergic to strong perfume, and rebuilt with a softer, less bold collection (that I love just as much). I am a part of several fragrance groups with likeminded people who like to discuss and discover new scents as much as I do, and now I've found a company to partner with that offers a variety of brands, some I know and some I have yet to discover: Scent Beauty

Converting to a vegan lifestyle can be difficult, but it's worth it. There are many benefits of becoming vegan such as reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer. It can even help you feel more energetic! However, if you're considering converting to a vegan lifestyle, there are some things that you should know before taking the plunge.

A Vegan Lifestyle

A vegan lifestyle is usually defined as someone who does not eat meat, dairy products, or eggs. A person may choose to follow a vegan diet for many reasons, such as health benefits, ethical concerns about animal welfare, and the environmental impact of raising animals for food. Becoming a vegan can seem like an overwhelming process, but your body will adapt to your new lifestyle changes in 2 - 6 weeks after you get started. When making this change, be sure to take it slow and pace yourself during this transition.

This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

It’s no secret that exercise is good for the body. No matter what kind of exercise you’re doing, increasing your heart rate and working out your muscles and joints comes with plenty of good benefits that you should be taking advantage of. However, most of us don’t really get enough exercise and there are a number of reasons why we seem to neglect it.

For starters, many of us live sedentary lifestyles now, especially with the increasing popularity of remote working. We tend to spend a lot of time sitting down at our desks and rarely do we find the time to go outside and start moving our body around. Thankfully, there are plenty of good ways to start introducing a bit more exercise into our daily lifestyle, and many people have started to look towards one of the most basic and laid-back ways of being more active; hiking.
