Have I mentioned this week how much I love TikTok? I have learned more recipes, tips, and tricks about just about anything that I've ever wanted to know from the 'short-form video' platform. I now know how to get rid of pesky mosquitoes effectively when summer hits. I have tried making more baked goods and have learned some very healthy recipes thanks to TikTok. 

Many of us enjoy scrolling through TikTok for things that we are interested in learning more about. Since I started writing these articles a few years back I enjoy sharing with you all the things I learn about that you may be interested in, including this little tidbit of info.
