4 Reasons Yosemite is a Great Place to Live

4 Reasons Yosemite is a Great Place to Live

You may have heard that expression “I live where you vacation” and if you’re from Yosemite you know there’s some serious #ZipcodePride for the residents of Yosemite. It’s such a beautiful place, known around the world for the striking nature found here. I wanted to share with you today 4 reasons why Yosemite is a great place to live. It’s likely you probably can’t up and move here (what a shame) but maybe this inspiration will guide you when booking your next holiday. Either way, I just had to show off why Yosemite is the BEST!

1. The Fresh Air
Your lungs will feel revitalised if you just visit Yosemite, so imagine living here? There’s trees for miles, grass greener than you’ve probably seen elsewhere, and it’s definitely not congested. This all results in amazing air quality, that is literally a breath of fresh air. Whenever I come home after traveling, I’m always shocked by how much nicer the air is here!

2. Nature
Imagine having numerous great hiking trails in your backyard? Well that’s my life! You’re literally spoiled for choice. This is great because you can’t help but be a little more active when living in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. The landscape is actually stunning and I feel like there’s a new surprise around every corner.

3. Not Too Far From the Ocean
You’re about 3.5-4 hours from California’s wonderful coast line, meaning that you can easily do a day trip or a weekend trip to the beach. Personally, I love going to the beach especially during the warmer months. There’s something so calming about the waves crashing into the shoreline. If you’ve ever lived in California, you know how serious we are about beach culture and I personally couldn’t live any further from the beach.

4. You Can Easily Get to San Fran
For me it’s really important to be near a big city. I love spending my week in nature, relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle of a city, however on the weekends it’s sometimes nice to go somewhere busier with more things to do. I love that Yosemite is just a short drive to San Fran – which is easily one of the best cities in the world. You can spend a weekend or just pop in for the day – it also means that you have a great international airport only a few hours drive away, perfect if you’re craving an overseas adventure.

When It’s Okay to Spend a Little Extra while Travelling

When It’s Okay to Spend a Little Extra while Travelling

Saving up to go on vacation can feel a little wince-worthy when you peek at your bank balance, but it helps to remember that each trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience something special. But what about spending money when you actually arrive at your destination?

For the frugally-minded, even being surrounded by exciting shops and markets in an interesting locale can inspire second thoughts about spending money. Especially for those who aren’t able to work while travelling, going on vacation can be a cutback on income. That means regret can sneak into your suitcase instead of a great souvenir, and might even spoil the memory of your trip. Don’t let it!

Curious about what’s worth spending your travel dollars on? Here are a few travel-related expenditures you can make without worry:

One-of-a-Kind Souvenirs

The word “souvenir” comes from the French for “to remember or bring to mind.” It’s an object that’s intended to make the viewer remember the great times they had in a special location—to remember their trip and the special people they may have shared the experience with.

With that in mind, you may want to choose an object that you’re likely to look at frequently. There’s a reason that items like magnets, spoons, and small statues make such popular souvenirs: they’re easy to display! Don’t hesitate to snag something you find beautiful that can fit on a favorite shelf or other area you frequent in the home or in the office.

Fashion from Afar

If you’re considering an item of clothing for sale, don’t get caught up in the “t-shirt craze” unless you regularly wear souvenir t-shirts. Yard sales, Goodwill, and thrift stores are filled with souvenir t-shirts because they’re often relegated to the bottom of closets when their buyers return home.

Instead, pick a high-quality piece of clothing or a fashion accessory you’re likely to wear often and that you wouldn’t be able to find at home. This will ensure that you have a souvenir you can interact with and love, instead of one you outgrow or throw in a donation bag years from now.

A Thoughtful Present

If you’re purchasing something for a friend or loved one back home, don’t hesitate to dip into your travel budget. Giving something thoughtful and unique to that special someone can be as much of a cherished item for them as your trip itself was for you. A one-of-a-kind souvenir tells the recipient that they were in your thoughts even as you were surrounded by exciting new sights. A word to the wise: make sure that whatever you’re bringing home will survive shipping or the trip in your suitcase!

A Unique Experience

You’re already out seeing the world, but sometimes spending a little more on an experience can help you see that world more fully. Is there a snorkeling excursion to the reefs you love but have only seen in pictures? Maybe you’ve always wanted to zipline through the jungle and now you’re at the place to do it? Or maybe you’re just tired of eating cheap meals and want to indulge in local cuisine at a nice restaurant. Sometimes spending a little extra can improve your experience in ways that you won’t forget. Just measure the money against the benefits, and ask yourself: is this worth it? If yes, go for it!

Be Smart

No matter what catches your eye—and your wallet—while you’re away from home, be sure to set a budget to prevent buyer’s remorse. Research average prices at your destination to prevent “sticker shock,” and if you’re visiting another country, be sure to stay aware of the currency exchange rate to snag the best deals.

Remember: travel is about experiencing new things, so don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone a bit. The perfect experience is waiting out there, just for you!

Timeless Skin Care Accessories

Timeless Skin Care Accessories

Some of our favorite beauty products would not be the same without our favorite accessories. Whether it is a favorite brush or a beauty blender, having the right tools can make the look. The same can be true for your skin care routine; using the right ingredients is fruitless if these ingredients do not reach the cells that they are meant to help. Fortunately, many companies like Timeless Skincare offer great accessories for their products.

Timeless Skin Care is dedicated to creating the best skin care products, and carries a great selection of serums and creams, which are effective on their own, but can be even more powerful if used with accessories from Timeless Skin Care. The 192 Micro Needle Dermaroller is a Timeless favorite accessory because of its many benefits.

Exfoliation: Dead skin can clog pores and mix into your makeup, causing gunk and breakouts. The 192 Micro Needle Dermaroller will help remove dead skin and help keep your pores clean. While the roller helps you sweep away dead skin, it also decreases pore size and increases the penetration of your favorite cleanser, serum, or cream.

Promote Collagen Production: You skin is constantly creating new cells and shedding old ones. To create new skin, you will need the right ingredients- including collagen, which is an important building block of skin. Adequate production of collagen helps decrease the appearance of acne scars, reduces fine lines, and heals damaged skin. The Dermaroller promotes the production of healthy collagen which in turn will yield resilient, radiant skin.

Easy to Use and Clean: The Dermaroller is made with surgical grade steel, which makes it a durable tool that is easy to use and clean. Just gently roll the Dermaroller onto your skin every few weeks for the desired effect.

Using natural skin care products and the proper accessories will help ensure that your skin stays healthy and youthful.
