Wellness Experiences Are The New Trend In Travel

Bella Breakdown It wasn’t that long ago that Airbnb added a revolutionary new aspect to it’s travel booking site. Besides just booking places to stay or rooms to rent, you can now book Airbnb Experiences, taking classes, joining tours or seeing live shows, all as part of your travel itinerary on the site.

Should You Try Intermittent Fasting?

Bella Breakdown You might have heard of intermittent fasting. There are actually a couple ways in which you can practice this relatively new dieting and weight loss trend.

Another way you can attempt intermittent fasting is limiting your eating to only 6 or 7 hours out of the day.
