I’ve been looking for some bluetooth workout headphones for awhile now, and I’ve think I’ve found the perfect ones…Plantronics BackBeat Fit headphones!

At the risk of sounding like a “princess,” which is what my boyfriend calls me (and not in a nice way…) when I talk about this topic, it’s almost impossible to find someone who not only cleans well, but who you can trust in your apartment when you’re not home. I found such a gem of a person over a year ago, but he went to visit family in India for over two months, leaving me scrambling with a messy apartment. The only reliable person I could find charged such an absurd amount that I decided it was high time I try out all the cleaning products and gadgets I’ve been hearing so much about…

With the holiday season in full swing, I imagine you’re scanning Pinterest boards and Googling for dinner party inspiration daily. But just remember not to drive yourself crazy. This is supposed to be fun! And truly, all you need for a memorable gathering is good people, good conversation, and one standout feature, be it the food, the decorations, or…the coasters.
