Last week, I talked about doing little things that can relieve stress. I failed to mention doing one thing that’s probably my favorite: doing my nails. There’s a big box that’s filled with nail polishes and other manicure/pedicure supplies that my roommates and I all share in our apartment. At one point in the semester, my roommates and I would do our nails at least every week, and we’d all come up with different designs and color combinations. There’s definitely some therapy that comes from focusing in on doing something meticulous. Maybe guys feel the same way when they’re shaving, or when they’re trying to fix something. Doing something to get your mind off things, but still having a tangible result is definitely a good stress reliever.

Last night I took a bubble bath, and I remembered the bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil that’s in my bathroom cabinet.

For the longest time, there has been a bottle of olive oil in my apartment’s medicine cabinet, and for the longest time, I wondered why it was there. I have come to accept that my roommates have different habits and tendencies than me, so like other nuances at the apartment, I didn’t think much of it. I have gotten numerous life hacking tips that have all pointed me to one amazing product: olive oil. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is one product that my roommate swears by. What I didn’t realize was that I too have utilized the amazing abilities of olive oil as well.
Why olive oil? It is all-natural, hypoallergenic, and fortified with antioxidants, and vitamins A and E. Check out OliveOilSource.com and ThePassionateOlive.com for more information on olive oil and its health and beauty benefits!

What if I told you that Kool-Aid is more than just a refreshing, thirst-quenching beverage?
To be honest, I don’t drink Kool-Aid very often. I’m more of a Tang fan myself, but who can’t resist a boost of flavor for only 10 cents? There are so many different flavors, (and colors) to choose from! I’m sure everybody has tried Kool-Aid at least once in their lives, and lots of people have some packets of Kool-Aid somewhere in their kitchen cupboards. I found these packets in my apartment hiding on top of my refrigerator. Continue reading
