Here’s How YOU Can Help Fight Breast Cancer | Giveaway

Do me a favor. Stop reading this for a second and think of someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer. Is it someone you’re related to? Maybe a close friend of yours? Someone from work? Or is it you? I think that one way or another, we all know someone who has been touched by this horrible disease. Unfortunately, I have in more ways than one. And I’m so sick and tired of it hurting the people I love. Aren’t you? That’s why I’ve decided, for the second year in a row, to participate in the American…

Style Trend | Military Brass

Give me all of the buttons! I haven’t shared a style trend post with you guys in a while. I guess I wasn’t feeling too inspired. That was until I saw these military-inspired pieces. With a double row of buttons, this trend really gives off a vintage vibe. Maybe that’s why I like it so much. From blazers, to a dress, and outerwear—these selections are all on my wish list. Which piece do you like the…

Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant | NYC Launch

Since day one, I’ve been a Christian Siriano fan. I knew he would do amazing things and design glamorous gowns. When I first heard he was collaborating exclusively with Lane Bryant, my heart kind of skipped a beat. High fashion was coming our way! With this limited edition collection, he has given us fall looks straight from the runway. And I was lucky enough to attend the launch party in New York City and snag…

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…

How to Refresh Dry Summer Hair | Giveaway (Closed)

Summer is almost over and it’s hopefully left you with fun memories and a maybe even a great tan…if that’s your kind of thing. Or you could be left with dry and brittle hair from the chlorine, sun, salt water, hair products, and even heat styling. Now, I wouldn’t consider myself a beauty guru. But, more like a beauty realist. I know we come from all kinds of walks of life and different hair types. So,…

Summer Moments to Remember

This post is in collaboration with JCPenney. What can I say about summer that you aren’t already thinking? You basically love it and never want it to end right? It’s like this season was created for special moments with the people you care most about. I’ll admit I used to be more of a winter kind of girl, but this summer has been one to remember. I don’t want it end either, because of days…

Living a Bold Life—My Way

Sponsored by J.M. Smucker company. If you would’ve asked me five years ago if I was living a bold life, I’m not sure I would’ve been able to answer you truthfully. Maybe because I wasn’t. I had just been diagnosed with anxiety and fear ruled my life. There were no courageous moments and I definitely wasn’t taking any daring chances. It was a dark time and one I’m not ashamed to talk about. Over the…

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…

Everything Happens for a Reason

You’ve heard this saying before right? Everything happens for a reason. And because we’ve heard it said over and over so many times, we might dismiss the meaning behind it. Well, I’ve been a true believer in this since I can remember. Yes, even the bad stuff. I feel that in my life, nothing has ever been accidental. As I’m sitting here typing this, I’m in the middle of brainstorming an idea. One that I’ve…

Beauty Buzz | Angel Shave Club Review

I’ll never forget being a teen and begging my mom to let me shave my legs. Little did I know all that came along with it. Like the constant and expensive upkeep for someone hairy like me. If you buy razors on the regular, you know how pricey they are. I’ve seen razor blade refills for as much as $20 for a refill box of four. That’s kind of ridiculous. I don’t know about you,…

Faux Real | Vegan Handbags

Accessories hold a special place in my heart. They can do so much for an outfit, without taking over. I appreciate that. One of my favorite accessories are handbags of course. I’m a sucker for a cross-body bag any day of the week. For the past few months, I’ve decided to cut leather/animal skin handbags out of my closet and my life. This is where vegan handbags come in. Don’t get me wrong, I still…

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…

Underwear Any Woman Could Feel Comfortable In | TomboyX (Closed)

True story. Growing up, my mom made me wear pink and enrolled me in ballet, baton twirling, cheerleading, and tap dancing. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those, but I was not about that life. I wanted to play soccer and baseball like my little brother. It wasn’t until I was in high school, when I finally convinced her to let me play softball, volleyball, and soccer. Bless her soul, but she couldn’t…

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,…
