Welcome! This is a website dedicated to everything related to lifestyle self-care and improvement. It is far more than a self-care and improvement informational website, it is also a community that allows you to interact with like-minded people and share your passion about becoming a better you and living a prime life!
I am The Beautiful Nerd (aka Mel) – given this nickname by a friend who said I was always researching healthcare topics and reading any books (preferably actual physical books) I could get my hands on. I created this blog to connect with fellow nerds or those in search of bettering themselves. The advent of the internet has brought an endless stream of information like never before. When I was growing up, all we had were library books and remember those old encyclopedia sets? WOW! I just wonder how many people, especially the younger generation, know what an encyclopedia is! I may be exposing my age by sharing this, but I used to beg my mother every week to purchase a new volume at our local Kroger grocery store. I knew once she started buying the set she wouldn’t stop because how could she resist her child wanting to learn?! Current day allows us to conduct our own research by the touch of our fingers. It’s a bit scary because you don’t know what is true and reputable and what is just someone trying to earn a buck. It is my hope to earn your trust by sharing tips that I personally use or have heard of that may bring benefit(s) to your life.
The Beautiful Nerd – Rocking the corporate world by day (and sometimes at night), mother to two wonderful and intelligent children, soon to be grandmother (that’s going to take some getting used to typing!), and wife to my childhood sweetheart (yes, it’s been a long haul and is quite rare nowadays to be married for so long!).
