If there’s one thing I love more than writing, it’s the freedom of being able to travel. Ask my dad and he’ll tell you the story about this little 2-year-old, yelling “let’s dooooh” whenever someone grabbed their keys. He said I was always trying to leave. Which I did a couple of times…but that’s a whole different story. Well, I can say that things haven’t changed much. Whenever I have an opportunity to travel I take it. Remind me to tell you about my first time visiting New York City in only 72 hours. I’ve learned that traveling is so…
Oh…oh…watch out. I put together another vlog for you guys. And this time it’s a #CurvyGirlTravels adventure. I take you guys with me as I travel across the country to Maine for my best friend’s wedding. I was a member of the bridal party and I was beyond excited to be a part of her special day. I’d love to give a special shout out to Kia who loaned us the 2015 Kia Optima for the road portion of our trip. Take a look at the video and please don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!
Can I just rewind myself back into last week? If I did, I’d be right back in that pool, basking in the Miami Beach sun (covered in sunscreen of course). Finally, after weeks of planning, my best friend Mary and eight of her closest friends traveled to Florida for her bachelorette weekend. It was definitely one to remember and I had to choose the photos that I’m going to share with you wisely. Sorry, but some bachelorette moments should just be kept to ourselves.
It’s no secret that I love to travel. Just check out my #CurvyGirlTravels hash tag on Instagram or Twitter and see where I’ve been. I’m always at some blogger event. For example, next week, is the inaugural We All Grow Summit and I’m so honored to be speaking on a panel. But, there will be no traveling for me! Because it’s based here in Los Angeles! The lovely ladies over #WeAllGrow asked me to put together some tips on packing for The City of Angels.
I’m ready to make a confession. Please don’t judge me. I live in Los Angeles, one of the most amazing cities in the world. Instead of getting out there and exploring it, I’ve become somewhat of a hermit crab. I think there are tourists out there who’ve seen more of this city than I have. Ugh, no true Angeleno would be proud to admit that. That’s why I jumped at the chance to write this sponsored post in collaboration with the new Jagger app. I knew it was time to venture out of my apartment and reignite my love affair with the City of Angels. And this app is perfect for that!
Sometimes, we just need a romantic weekend. Whether it’s to rekindle the fire, start-up up a romance, celebrate a special occasion, or just because. I was invited out by the Hofsas House Hotel in Carmel, California to spend a complimentary weekend by the sea. Only a 5 1/2 hour drive north of Los Angeles, the hubby and I decided to take a break from our lives and the opportunity to explore the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea. We had such an amazing and relaxing time, just the two of us. It was so nice, that I wanted to share a few of my tips for a romantic weekend.
Where are road warriors at? Who loves a good summer road trip? I just got back from one myself. Made a trip from Los Angeles to Phoenix. It was so much fun! If you’re planning your own road trip this summer, you just might want to pick up the August 2014 issue of Latina Magazine. Flip on through to their “Traditions through Travel” feature where I share my own road trip tips on behalf of Toyota!
