For the photographers of the group, this is the best destination to see. The salt flats reflect the light and demonstrate nature's true beauty. The largest flat is named Salar de Uyuni located in the southwest corner of Bolivia near the Andes Mountains. While this trip does take a bit of a journey to reach it is worth it!!!

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
