The Gift That Keeps On Giving: Facebook Scams

New Year, New Facebook Scams.

Each year, There is always a time my newsfeed is flooded with the promise of free gift cards, cars and like farms. You’ve seen the like farms. They promise you that if you “like” this photo, a lovely child will make it to Disney or a husband won’t have to wash the dishes for a year. Those are harmless.

I’m not gonna judge you for passing those along. What I am gonna ask is that you stop falling for the click bait and switch for the free items.

Here’s why.

Wordless Wednesday: Doctor Who Lego Tardis

Doctor Who Lego Set

While I am still reeling from the fact that Doctor Who is no longer on Netflix, I wanted to take you on a partial journey of my latest unplugged project. While the east coast was getting plummeted with Blizzard Jonas, Jamea and I took up the task of putting together the Doctor Who Lego Set and I’m happy to say, it was pretty relaxing.

While we are taking this project one piece at a time, I will say this has been one of the best unplugged projects I’ve done in years. Now that we’ve gotten back to work, I’ll be sure to edit this post with the finished project!

You can pick up your own Doctor Who Lego Set here.

Baltimore Hidden Gem: Seoul Spa

seoul spa

I debated on whether or not I would feature this hidden gem because honestly it is one of a kind! I absolutely love Seoul Spa and in the spirit of New Year, New Me  2016, I figured that I would share the wonders of this Baltimore hidden gem: Seoul Spa.

I recently discovered Seoul Spa in May 2015 during a quick impromptu trip during my birthday. It was an epic weekend filled with wine festivals and an English tea breakfast But I have to say, Seoul Spa was the highlight of the weekend. I went back with Mea and some good girlfriends for a relaxing day of self-care. Well worth the trip.
