Curvy Girl Travels: Forever Changed

When I started writing Curvy Girl Travels, I wanted to share more than travel stories. I felt like if I could share an experience with you, it may inspire you to start your own journey. It’s funny, because I feel like this post may be my first time actually sharing more than a tourist review. Read more

Curvy Girl Travels: A Packing Lesson Learned

There are just some travel boo boos we can’t anticipate. When I was at Target last week buying a bottle of Sally Hansen’s Quick Dry nail polish, little did I know it would inspire a Curvy Girl Travels post. I was so sick that week with sinus allergies that I didn’t have time to make sure my nails were all painted and ready to go for my blog conference. So, I packed a bottle of this polish that everyone brags about. I was dying to try it out. Read more

Curvy Girl Travels: Perfect Las Vegas Shoe

This shoe lover has a little bit of a problem. As I’m getting older, it seems my feet can’t handle high heels anymore. I realized this on my last trip to Las Vegas. After two long days of walking around in the heat, the minute a heel was placed on my foot, I was ready to take them off. Like right then and there. We hadn’t even left the hotel room yet! LOL!

Curvy Girl Travels: My NYC Essentials

New York City is more than skyscrapers and taxis. As one of my favorite cities, the “Big Apple” never seems to disappoint, even when it’s disgustingly hot and humid outside.

Curvy Girl Travels: The Opryland of Nashville

I’ve often found that there’s always a good reason to travel. Whether it’s for work or play, the idea of being able to discover new and interesting places has always made me the happiest curvy girl around.

I had the honor of being selected by Latinos in Social Media to attend BlissDom’11 a blogger conference inside The Opryland hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Being that I’d never been to Tennessee, I was excited to visit “one of the friendliest cities in the United States.” Which was proven to me the minute I stepped inside my taxi by the way. Read more
