I visited DC last summer for the first time since I was a kid. It was my birthday weekend, which also happened to be July 4th weekend so it was a great time to visit our nation’s capital. Hellooo fireworks. We didn’t plan too many things but rather improvised most of the trip. With all […]
If you’re curly headed like me, you know the struggle of finding a stylist who loves styling curls. To our disadvantage, most stylists love to straighten and process hair. It’s their craft. Society doesn’t necessarily help either by suggesting you need “sleek” hair to look “polished.” It’s so important to have a stylist who not […]
I love encouraging naturally curly-haired ladies to embrace their curls and quit straightening their hair. A huge part of being able to rock your curls with confidence is to have a skilled naturally curly hair stylist to coach you through the process. You can look up do’s and don’ts for curly hair online but there’s […]
You’ve heard me talk about Monster Jam, which I got to check out last year but this year I’m trying something new. Instead of four ginormous tires, we’re going with two way smaller tires – motorcycles! Monster Energy Supercross, the premier motorcycle racing event featuring the world’s top riders, rides into Raymond James Stadium in […]
I’m so happy to see the natural hair movement that has emerged in recent years. I’ll be honest. For years I thought I needed to “tame” my hair in ordered to be perceived as a “professional.” But now that I’m over society’s nonsense, I’m focused on making my curls as healthy as can be. Too […]
When I tell my friends I only bring a backpack on most of my trips, they look at me like I’m crazy. Granted, I’m not one to wear a full face of makeup or blow dry my hair every day (or ever, really …) but I’ve seen girls who do successfully backpack it for trips. […]
Travelers are a funny bunch. They often treasure experiences over things and raggedy souvenirs over the latest shiny object. This can make coming up with gift ideas for travelers a little difficult. But one of the items in this post might stick out to you as the perfect gift for the beloved traveler in your […]
Here are three ways you can save on airfare using Google Flights.
The weather is getting warmer and warmer, which means it’s time for shorts, tanks and flip flops. Or maybe those cute off-the-shoulder blouses everyone seems to be wearing these days. If you’re feeling a little self-conscious or not quite ready to don summer’s fashion trends, it’s not too late to hit the gym and tone […]
Last March, I booked a flight to Costa Rica (my first Central American country) with the intent of attending a yoga and surf retreat. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the retreat was canceled and I was left wondering what to do with a flight to Costa Rica. For the following few months, I was seesawing between […]
If you’re looking to try something new with your family, get your tickets to Monster Jam Orlando! My family has always been into motorsports – I’ve been going to the racetrack my entire life – and Monster Jam was right up our alley. I seriously didn’t expect to be as impressed as I was with […]
So you have a laundry list of destinations you just need to visit, but only have ~2 weeks of vacation time per year to make it happen? Unfortunately, this is the situation in which most of us who are kissed by wanderlust find ourselves. However, that shouldn’t discourage you. There are several ways you can […]
I consider myself a “bad Floridian” sometimes because of all the places I have yet to visit although I’ve lived in Orlando for two decades. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not was on that list of places I hadn’t visited until recently.
I live in Central Florida and the area is a treasure trove of adventure. But although I’ve lived here for a long, long time, I feel that I haven’t been the best at exploring near home. I’m making it my mission to change that. While St. Augustine wasn’t *technically* a new destination for me, I had lots to discover.
To begin Day Two in Munich, I met Rupert of the Munich Tourist Office to make our way to Brienner-Quarter, a historic shopping district that has been around since 1826. To get there, we took the Underground, which was a really short walk away (2 minutes tops) from Schiller5, where I was staying. A video […]
