With so many brands promising to do so many things to your skin yet many times leaving us with no results and disappointed we got caught up in the hype. Maya Chia is far from hype and genius marketing. Maya Chia starts with […]

So, here is the ultimate men’s gift guide that will surely knock those socks and sweaters out of the round […]

Top Ways to Use Face Oils For Maximum Results

Scents and fragrances are incredibly powerful, and one of the best ways to bring an element of calm and serenity into your day. They evoke feelings and sensations that have the power to soothe your tired body and relax your racing mind. One of the simplest ways to incorporate scents and fragrances into your day is by the use of face oils in your skincare routine. I love using face oils as part of my skincare routine, but as much as that is a true statement now, there was once a time when you couldn’t get within a mile of […]

5 Easiest Productivity Hacks for the Holidays

I’m obsessed with getting as much done as humanly possible. Every single day. Is anyone else as obsessed with productivity as I am? Sometimes I trick myself into thinking I’m a robot, and then I get tired or near burned out, and I remember that I’m a mere mortal human. And during certain times of the year, where the season is especially busy (like summer and holidays), getting as much done as I want becomes a real struggle. During the month of December, we are going on half-horsepower for #TeamTeri behind the scenes here, in anticipation for feeling extra tired […]

I’d love the usual 7-9 hours that all doctors recommend for that bright, shiny complexion, […]

#1 Fastest Way to Becoming a Full-Time Blogger

Oh, the mythical and elusive term “full-time blogger.” Let’s make it clear: blogging or “content creation” (in the form of written articles, YouTube videos, photography, or combination) is considered hard work, just like how people go to work at a 9-to-5 job, Monday through Friday. Therefore, we’re dispelling the notion that bloggers should not make an income. If bloggers shouldn’t make an income, then 9-to-5 employees shouldn’t make an income either, right? Same logic. “Blogging” has been around for centuries. From the revolutionary rhetoric of history’s past to newspapers, journalists on TV, even big news websites of today (like the […]
