A Holiday Dress to Remember

This is a sponsored post in partnership with David’s Bridal. If you’ve ever walked into a David’s Bridal, more than likely it’s because you were buying your wedding dress or you were part of someone else’s special day. My experience with them had me purchasing my own heavily beaded and lace wedding gown. But, I’m here to tell you they are so much more than bridal. I’m talking about holiday outfit goals guys! We all know that when November rolls around, we all have holidays on the brain. This means cocktail parties, work & family gatherings, black tie events, winter…

Pinspiration | A Vegan Thanksgiving

It has officially been six months since I decided on a eating a vegan diet. And I can tell you it’s been challenging, but it’s doable and definitely been worth it. People always asks me if I feel better and the answer is yes—I really do. It’s definitely not for everyone. To be honest, I never thought I’d last this long, but here I am. I’m still alive guys! Whoo! I am concerned about the upcoming holiday season though. I started freaking out a little bit yesterday about what I’m going to eat during Thanksgiving. That’s when I started searching…

Living with Anxiety: How I Cope

My heart races, it gets harder for me to breathe, my stomach is twisting and turning, fear and doubt are attacking me from every direction possible, and I’m scared it will never stop. This is only part of what I deal with when my anxiety hits and I know I’m not alone. For some odd reason (sarcastically typing), my anxiety has been above and beyond the worst I’ve experienced in a really long time. And like most of you who deal with it on a daily basis, I just want to curl up into a ball, pass out or cry, and never leave…

My Body My Story | Lucy Activewear Giveaway (Closed)

This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and lucy #lucyForEveryBody blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own. When I was in my early 20’s, I would drag myself to the gym. I never wore anything form fitting and would cringe the minute someone good looking jumped on the treadmill next to me. I was so self-conscious about my appearance and would always beat myself up about gaining weight—which happened a lot. Today, I’m 39, and I give zero cares about anyone else’s fitness expectations. I am my own person. I do what I…

A Night to Remember

I want to say I have a confession, but I think you guys know me well enough to know that I’m kinda sorta obsessed with sports. Just a little bit…OK…a lot. I don’t know where it comes from. But, there’s just something about the passion, drive, and competitiveness of athletes that I truly admire and respect. So, when Toyota invited me to attend the Chris Paul Family Foundation Celebrity Server dinner, I could not say YES fast enough. Not only would I be on hand as they raise money and awareness for this amazing foundation, but I would get a…

Beauty Buzz | My Fall Beauty Favorites

I’m looking out my window and it’s a sunny, yet typical fall day here in L.A. I love autumn foilage and cooler temperatures. This is one of my favorite seasons, even if it was a blazing 96 degrees last week. But, that was the past and today it’s on the cooler side—thank goodness. And just like that, I’m ready to share some of my fall beauty favorites with you guys. My 5 Fall Beauty Favorites You already know that I love all things Josie Maran. I use her Argan Oil daily. When they offered to send me a bottle of her…

Pinspiration | Last-Minute DIY Halloween Costumes

In case you blinked, it’s almost Halloween. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. One minute it’s all about summer vacay and now you have to hurry up and put together a costume at the last-minute. Unless you’re one of those people who plans their look months in advance. FYI…I’m not that person. I do love dressing up for Halloween, but I usually decide what I’m going to be a week or two before the creepy night. This year I decided on a DIY Halloween project. After hitting up a few costume shops, craft stores, borrowing from my…
