All about that pink drink life. If you haven’t had it yet, order a strawberry acai refresher and substitute the water for coconut milk. I made my own “pink drink” the other day but it wasn’t the same. I was hoping I could come back with a post and tell you how to make it yourselves… but don’t, because that crap was gross.

But is a pet health insurance policy ultimately worth the expense? Here are some tips to help you decide whether to purchase pet insurance.
