We all like to have a little bit of extra money don’t we? At the same time we keep dragging ourselves to the gym after work, go home and sleep. Then we get it the next day and the pattern begins again. But is there a way to break the monotony, and keep fit, whilst at the same time learning some extra cash? Technically it sounds like you could get paid to keep fit. But what if I said that it is possible? There are ways to make this possible! And here are some ways you can do it!

I’m not a professional photographer, just an average blogger who wants my photos to look good as the real thing without really going through the tough process of editing or changing settings on my camera that I’m clueless about. (Well, also maybe wanting to have a properly curated Instagram feed as well haha! #goals)
Planning a winter break this Christmas? We all know about the incredible, popular destinations that people flock to each year- but there are plenty of other options too that you might not have thought about. If you want to go somewhere quieter or perhaps do things a little differently, here are a few alternative options to consider.
An Icy Wonderland
We all know there are some stunning, popular snowy locations around the world that are perfect for visiting at Christmas. But if you’re looking for something different, an interesting getaway filled with rich culture and traditions- Iceland is the way to go! The Icelandic people know how to do Christmas right, with celebrations being an eclectic mix of religion, folklore and modern life. Houses are decorated with lights and a traditional Christmas tree, as the people of the country welcome light back into their lives. This is because it’s the time when the days start to grow longer again, after a lengthy period in the year of darkness. You have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights in Iceland over December, which is an incredible bonus while on your vacation. If you’re hoping for plenty to see and do, you won’t be disappointed with an adventure trip to Iceland. There are various tours to see the stunning landscape and wildlife, and lots of activities for tourists.
A Christmas Cruise
A Christmas cruise could be a fantastic way to celebrate the festive season. On a cruise, you get to travel to different places but without the hassle of traditional travel. There is no messing around at airports or long car drives from place to place. Particularly useful when airports, roads, and public transport are crammed to the brim during the festive season where people are visiting friends and relatives. Instead, you get to relax on a luxurious ship that comes complete with everything you need. You can sip champagne on the deck, and enjoy the many activities on offer. The ship will be beautifully decorated, and there will be lots of Christmassy things to do. From choirs singing carols to festive food and parties. You’ll get a traditional Christmas dinner but with none of the clearing away or dishes to do afterward. And if you’re staying through to the new year, you can start the year off feeling relaxed and revived rather than succumbing the January blues.
A Tropical Paradise
If you’re not a fan of the cold, why not do something different entirely and book a holiday to a tropical paradise instead? Places like Australia, Mexico, Lanzarote and The Gambia will all be scorching hot in December. If you don’t care for a snowy Christmas, laying on a gorgeous beach in the heat could be an excellent way to go instead. If you live in a country that’s usually cold in December, something like this can make a welcome change. Forget the winter coats, hats, and gloves- throw your bikini, flip flops and summer dresses into your case and jet off to sunnier climes.
Will you be going away this Christmas? Where will you be jetting off to?

Some people love having guns. Some people feel like they need to have them. You might like hunting, shooting at the practice range, or other outdoor activities. You might have legitimate fears for your safety that require one. Whatever the reason you’re getting a gun, you need to take responsibility. Not just for the chances of accidents. You need to make sure you’re able to use and look after the gun as well. Here we’ll look into how you do that.
Make sure you have the right equipment for you
The first thing to understand is that not everyone is going to have the exact tastes in guns. Nor are they going to have the same proficiency and ability to handle different guns. So before you buy, make sure you try. Get a caliber and make that fits you personally. The same goes for any equipment you use to hold your gun. For instance, not everyone is going to comfortable with the same specifications on their holster. Some people prefer holsters that have an extra step or two of security before accessing their guns. If you have any doubts, it’s a good idea to look at a custom holster instead of a generic one.
Keep yourself and everyone else around you safe
It shouldn’t have to be said that gun safety is mandatory, but not everyone is getting the lesson. First, when it’s in your hands, make sure you’re following the key rules of gun safety. Never assume the safety is on. Never point it at another person unless you intend on shooting (which should rarely be the case). Practice trigger discipline to make sure you’re not in danger of misfiring. Then make sure you’re storing it safely in the home, as well. You might want to keep it unloaded. Or keep it in a lock box. With kids, you need to anticipate their curiosity, too. Communicate frankly that the gun is not a toy and that they should never attempt to use or hold it.
Don’t let it a degrade
A gun that isn’t cared for is just as dangerous as a loaded gun left on a kitchen table. Not only can it fail to protect you in life-threatening situations. It’s also in more danger of misfiring or backfiring. You don’t want to experience that. So when you own a gun, it’s not enough to learn how to hold and shoot. You also need to learn how to clean and maintain it. Make sure you have all the right materials in your home and you that you take regular care of it. Without doing so, you might have spent all that money on a tool that does nothing but cause risk.
Above all else, safety is a priority. Don’t think that owning a gun is enough to keep you safe. You need to make sure you can use it effectively and reduce its threat when you don’t want to use it. A gun can be dangerous in any situation, so you have to always be the one in control of it.

When you are on your travels, one of the first places you head to is the sea. After all, you want to see the amazing crystal blue waters at least once during your trip. If you get the chance, you might get to spend a day or two at the beach. Although sunbathing is an excellent way to relax, it’s not a fun thing for an adrenaline seeker like me! Therefore, you should try one of these water sports when you are at the sea on your vacation!
You need to try jet skiing at least once in your lifetime. It’s so much fun; a lot of people describe it as riding a motorbike on water! Although it’s one of the most dangerous watersports on our list, it’s definitely worth a go. You get to race across the water, creating a splash as you go. It has some celebrity fans including Simon Cowell; you will spot him in magazines riding his favorite Jet Ski! Although it’s an unforgettable experience, it’s less strenuous than other water sports! Rent one with a friend and have fun racing each other across the water.

Confidence is something that we all struggle with from time to time. The fact is, it is something which can make or break a great number of circumstances. If you have come to realise that you could do with a little boost in your confidence, you are not alone. Everyone worries that they are not confident enough sometimes. Of course, the irony here is that the more you worry about it, the truer it becomes. In many ways, confidence is the ability to pretend to be confident. While that might sound self-defeating, it is in many ways true. If you want to improve your confidence, take these tips on board today.
When it comes to being fit and “beach ready,” they say that abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym. Put simply, eat healthily! But what if I like food too much and I want to be fit as well? You would probably say “you can’t have your cake and eat it” (I’m sure I will have cake, though!) and I would reluctantly agree with you. But if age and your metabolism are on your side you can make it work in your favor, and if they are not? Well, it may be time to try this exercise routine:

I love traveling around on holiday with my other half. After all, there’s nothing better than exploring different areas and seeing new things. However, it can be a challenge when it’s hard to go on more than one holiday a year. After all, our budget can only stretches so far as one place a year. However, if you are longing to see more of the world, you should consider a multi-country trip. That way, you can see more of the world while you are on your annual vacation. However, it can be a challenge to plan it all out. Here is everything you need to do when you are planning to visit more than one country in a trip.

Even if you aren’t a massive fan of the NFL, watching an American football match is something that will appear on most people’s bucket lists. After all, it’s not just the action on the field that matters. Soaking in the matchday experience and atmosphere will provide you with a magical memory that will stay with you forever. Isn’t that exactly what traveling is all about?
Watching a game will inevitably give your trip an extra sense of purpose, but you deserve to enjoy the whole trip rather than just the match itself. With this in mind, San Diego is easily one of the best places to visit this NFL season. Even if they aren’t the best team in the league at this moment, the 70,000-seater Qualcomm Stadium will provide a huge buzz. More importantly, California’s second-largest city has plenty to offer on a 24/7 basis.
