I Was a Health Spa Virgin: 5 Things I Learned

First thing I’m going to do for you is explain what a health spa is and then I’ll tell you how I landed in one. According to Dictionary.com, a health spa is a resort or a special building or room where a person may exercise, swim, or otherwise condition the body. Now that you know that, let me explain how this all unfolded. My amiga Yolanda of SassyMamainLA.com, text me asking if I wanted to head to a resort in Ojai with her. I had just told my husband that I needed a massage and some “me” time badly. Without…

Travel Diary | Virginia is for Travel Lovers

I’ll never forget the first time I walked onto an airplane. I was 19-years-old and I was headed off to Texas for Basic Military Training. This is when I learned all about the fine skill of hyperventilating. It was probably, to this day, one of the worst flights of my life. Down to the thunder and lightening storm that followed me all the way to San Antonio. You’d think this would’ve scared me into never flying again…wrong. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve flown and how many more flights are in my future. It’s all because I…

Travel Diary | Discovering Mission San Diego de Alcalá

“Less doh…less doh,” I would yell as soon as I heard the keys jingle. My dad tells me as soon as I could walk and talk, I was always trying to leave. I can’t blame me. This curious toddler wanted to see what was beyond her parents arms. I’m not much different today. I can’t imagine a life without being able to travel and discover new places. In my latest travel adventure, I take you in and around the first mission in California—San Diego de Alcalá. There I was in one of my favorite cities, with KIA and it was our duty to…

Travel Diary | A Drive Along the Coast with Kia

I’m always looking for a reason to explore one of my favorite cities in the entire world—San Francisco. I’ve been there a handful of times and always leave feeling like I still have more to explore. This time Kia invited me out to test drive the refreshed 2017 Kia Forte. And this trip, as you’ll see in my photos below, sent me along the San Francisco coast. We drove through the most picturesque places I have ever been. Can you imagine how hard it is to enjoy the view when you’re driving? It’s a good thing I’m multi-talented. The trip…

My Philly Crush Continues| Part II

My crush with the city of Philadelphia continues. If you didn’t get a chance to read part I of how it all started, make sure you do that here. In this post, I’m going to share what the rest of my trip looked like for this L.A. lady. There are over 20 photos and I’m not sorry about that. There would’ve been more, but I’m sparing your eyes of my Philly obsession. In my opinion, starting day two with a pomegranate mimosa and vegan pancakes topped with strawberries from Hickory Lane American Bistro isn’t too shabby. In fact, I’ve been…

Philly, I Might Have A Crush on You | Part I

I’m sitting her thinking about all of the reasons that I love to travel. Believe me, when I tell you that the list is really long. But, what I appreciate more than anything, is when my perception of a place I’ve never visited before, is totally crushed. Thank you Visit Philly for introducing me to the “City of Brotherly Love.” I’ve always been a fan of the east coast. I may be a sucker for the historic side of things, but I also appreciate a city that explores new and upcoming concepts—without losing it’s identity of course. The awesome people…
