At the end of last year I tried one of the latest health trends- Floating! Basically there is a large floating tank (which has the option to close completely)and has about a foot of water and tons of Epsom salts. There’s also a light and relaxing music- both of which you can turn off.

I think the first time is a bit of a shock so I would be more likely to get more relaxation going another time.

Super excited to go bridesmaid dress shopping on this trip as my best friend since I was 7 asked me to be her matron of honor! I’ve been a bridesmaid before but never a maid/matron- any tips?

I’ve also had a few friends going through some grief recently and really loved these two articles that were shared on Facebook:
