Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want.

Sweet Relief



For those who have gone above and beyond, like that bestie that never lets you down, why not give them a gift certificate for a spa treatment?

Sweet Pictures

Or one where they brought you flowers that they picked themselves? Buy an inexpensive frame, decorate it with paint pens, seashells or dried flowers and insert the picture of a sweet and considerate thank you gift.
