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…

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 honestly had brewing for a while. Just to get this ball moving has done wonders for me. Especially since this chick has been having a…

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, but sometimes my budget doesn’t allow me to buy those. I end up getting stuck with the cheap “one use only” razors. This is where…

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 want the quality, workmanship, and style–just without the animal. These brands and designers have done a great job of achieving that. Here are seven vegan…

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…

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 grasp my fashion choices either. I wanted to wear black all of the time and baggier clothes like my brother’s Levi’s, but she wasn’t having…

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…
