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…

Anna Scholz | New York State of Mind Collection

If you’re an Anna Scholz fan, you know she’s all about her bold patterns and bright colors. That’s what I love most about her. She’s not afraid to dress the plus size woman in what is normally seen as taboo for our curves. Her latest capsule collection, New York State of Mind, is a perfect example of that. The collection launched yesterday and I am all about it. As you’ll see below, she used “The Big…

Cruelty-Free Beauty | 5 Summer Favorites

Whenever I describe what I do as a blogger, I always mention that I like to review beauty products. And in no way shape or form, am I a “beauty guru.” This means I’m not a professional in the industry nor do I pretend to be one. I feel like I started pretty late in life when it comes to hoarding and spending all of my money on beauty products. Sometimes, I love what I…

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…

5 Beginner Tips on Eating Vegan

If there’s one thing I love about blogging, it’s my ability to openly share my life experiences with you guys. That’s why I originally started this whole blog life and it’s why I continue to do it eight years later. I’ve shared a lot of things here, but one thing I haven’t really written about are my eating habits. For the last year, I’ve been living the vegetarian life. This means I wasn’t eat red meat, poultry, or…

I know you have a stereotypical image in your head of what cat people look and act like.…

5 Pieces of Car Shopping Advice

Sponsored by Kia. There’s just something about shopping for a new car that’s exciting, but also a little terrifying. Believe me, I know. I’m lucky, because I get to do a lot of blogger stuff with car brands, my inner car lover is always very happy about that by the way. Like the Kia Ride and Drive at Six Flags Magic Mountain recently. That was fun. But, being surrounded by new cars always gets me thinking about…
