May has been a mighty month here on Fierce Beyond Forty. I have shared a lot of wonderful articles that aim to inspire, empower, and help you be fierce. Here in Kansas, we nose-dived straight into Summer and it’s been sweltering. I hope everyone out there is staying cool, or warm depending on where you live.

Please check out May’s RoundUp and see what you may have missed on the blog.

Every month I start off with a Happiness Is post.

Happiness Is articles are a series here on the blog found under the Health & Wellbeing section.

We need to remember to find happiness in the little things life brings us.

This month I was happy to sit back and enjoy some of my local sites and sounds here in Kansas.

I also shared some of those sounds with you.

Take a listen!

I also shared my fashion picks when it comes to summer sandals.

While I shared that I do like to pick up fashion at great deals, shoes are an area I get more selective.

We need to take care of our feet and Earth Brand sure does that!

See my featured selections from them.
