Is your child one that gives up easily? Do they sulk and say “I can’t do it” when things get difficult?
Or is your child brave & resilient, knowing that with the right effort and strategies, she can accomplish anything?
These two very different mindsets start during childhood and follow your child right into adulthood. They are described by Dr Carol Dweck at Stanford University as a Fixed mindset vs a Growth mindset.
People with fixed mindsets believe that their skills and abilities can’t be altered in a significant way, that they are “fixed.” This is the child who believes they just aren’t good at math and that no matter what they do, they never will be. People with fixed mindsets avoid challenges and r...
Below is a list of the top 50 travel blogs for the 2nd half (July — December) of 2018 ranked by visitor traffic.
There are a few other sites that have put together their own lists of the “top” travel blogs.
However, each has their own subjective means of ranking sites, using everything from Alexa scores, Twitter followers, Facebook likes, estimated traffic, inbound Google links and even subjective design criteria.
My intention was to create the most objective and accurate list of the most popular travel blogs.
Therefore, this list is based solely on the number of visitors a travel blog receives. To read more about how this list was put together, please read below.

If you’re a regular reader on our site, then I think it’s safe to say that you’re a bonafide camper van enthusiast. We spend a lot of time scrolling through our favourite Van Life Instagram feeds and our top portable Tiny House YouTube Channels in a bid to learn more about how the van life culture is evolving and spreading across the globe. When I first started my journey to build a campervan, the vanlife hashtag had around 400’000 users. Yesterday’s count put it on a whopping 6million users; that’s a heck of a lot of growth in just two years.
But what do we know about the history of the camper van before social media threw vandwellers into the spotlight? Sure, we know that the Volkswagen Bus Camper played a big part in getting free spirits out of the city and into the wilderness, but the trail goes a lot further back than that. We’re going to take you on a ‘time-team’ style journey to the early 1800s and check out where the camper van first began. Think of...

Unfortunately, there are plenty of winter jackets out there who only focus on the warmth and not style.

Why do we make crafts and put together DIY projects? Well, for the love of course, but in some cases for money. Not the love of money, that’s bad, but because getting paid to do what you love is considered a very successful life. So, with that in mind, I present 44 craft ideas that range from “dang simple” to “kinda hard,” especially if you can’t sew. There is something for every crafter; and I believe every one of these ideas can sell at any craft show or even on Etsy. In fact, a few are already proven sellers on Etsy.com (and we linked to those tha...
Cheryl Kelley’s captivating paintings depict vintage cars with stunningly real reflections. The artist uses smooth canvases painted with high-gloss varnish to achieve the nearly photographic effect. In fact, she classifies her work as “photo-based realism,” deriving paintings from pictures she takes at car shows. In the reflections, the artist includes hints of life in yesteryear. Silhouettes of old-style architecture, fashions from bygone eras and vintage advertisements can all be glimpsed in the sheen of a hood or glimmer of a door. “The reflections on the surfaces of the automobiles allow the viewer to go deeper, to see something more than the form,” she says.
Kelley came of age in the 1970s, as women across America sta...
