10 Important Money Lessons I Learned by My 29th Birthday
Today I'm celebrating the last birthday of my twenties. I can't say that I'm feeling any wiser (older? I'd rather not talk about it). But if you ask my friends and family, they'd probably say I'm pretty far ahead of the curve when it comes to my finances. Sure, I've been writing about personal finance for the better part of my adult life, but that's not to say all this money wisdom didn't come without some serious trial and error. You learn a lot on the way to thirty. I'll spare the more colorful life lessons -- here's the financial guidance I can provide, based on experience. 1. It's better to invest in staples than co...

Rhino Rescue Project Is Injecting Poison Into Horns In Desperate Attempt To Curb Poaching
As Africa's rhino population continues to grow more vulnerable due to poaching and increasing demand for their horns in Asian countries, one organization is taking a different approach to curb the hunting by poisoning the animals' horns. Lorinda Hern, co-founder of the Rhino Rescue Project, explained to HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps on Monday that the "dramatic increase" in rhino poaching over the years is due in part to a rumor that began circulating several years ago in countries like China and Vietnam that the horns had healing powers and were linked to curing many "high-profile individuals" of anythin...

Powdered Alcohol Is Now Legal, But Experts Are Torn Over Risks To Children
By: Rachael Rettner Published: 03/17/2015 10:40 AM EDT on LiveScience A powdered form of alcohol called Palcohol is now approved for sale in the United States, but how safe is this product? Some health experts say they are concerned that powered alcohol could be abused by minors, or could be more easily more easily hidden and consumed in places where people are not allowed to have alcohol. But others argue that there is no reason the drug would be more hazardous than liquid alcohol. On Tuesday, the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau approved Palcohol, a powdered alcohol that people can drink by mixi...

7 Reasons Why You Should Go Clubbing in the A.M.
Going clubbing at night is getting sooooooo old, amiright? I mean, it's so last year to come home at 5 a.m. when you could totally just get the party going at 6 a.m. Seriously, it is all the rage these days so you should def hop on the bandwagon. Unconvinced? Here's why you should flip the switch on your party habits and hit the dance floor earlier, rather than later: 1) Because it gives you an excuse to get up on time. You're way less likely to bump the snooze button when you know you're heading out to bust a move. 2) Because it's the same as a morning workout. Dancing = cardio = burnin' those calories right up.

4 Ways Embracing an Ayurvedic Sleep Pattern Improves Your Life
Ever since I was a little girl I've been up at dawn. While my family members were sleeping, I would get up and read a book, watch the sunrise, or sit down and pray. I didn't know if God could hear me or not. But I did know that if he was there, he was the only one awake to talk to. So remember that the next time you use the oxymoronic phrase, "ungodly hour." As I grew older and my peers started progressively staying up later and sleeping in longer, I still got up somewhere between 4 and 6 in the morning, and was still happiest when I could wrap myself in my down duvet by 9:30 at night. Which can be a real drag...

7 Things I Learned on an Elimination Diet (and How They Still Keep Me Healthy Every Day)
Honestly, I'm totally averse to "diets." I've never put myself on one because I think they often set people up to "fail" because they are not sustainable in the long-term. It's this really sad, vicious cycle of trying to find the next easy way to "get skinny" that ends up making people feel really bad about themselves. But this one was different. I recently started with a naturopath because I wanted to make sure I was feeling my absolute best, and to see if there was anything she could do about my eczema. I've had it my entire life, and it's more or less a daily aggravation. I've tried s...
