Hello my beautiful humans...
I am back.
This whole consistent writing schedule isn't really working out well for me, is it? And it doesn't help that I seem to be in a different state each week.. But hey, it's my yes year! YO to the LO.
But seriously, I did have an itch to write because it does calm my mind and it's an excellent way for me to escape and stop scrolling social media + wondering why Instagram seems to be going down the drain. *The damn algorithm*
A couple days ago, I asked my friends on social media (the irony) to shoot me some ideas of what they would want me to dig into and I got some great feedback. (Click to read more)
You know what I am good at?
- Making lists.
- Oversharing on Instagram.
- Wearing pink.
The list truly can go on and on. ;)
But you know what I am really BAD at?
- Remembering to post routinely on this blog.
As I was sitting on my couch tonight, researching hotels for my upcoming trip tp Spain... It hit me.
I NEVER WROTE A BLOG ON HOW TO SOLO TRAVEL? (Click to read more).
She is officially back in the good ole US of A.
What. A. Whirlwind.
In case you missed it (and if you did... don't worry, I saved everything into a highlight reel on my Instagram for your viewing pleasure), I just got back from my first ever SOLO TRIP to Portugal.
A solo trip that was not supposed to be a solo trip until around 48 hours before my flight took off. Crazy, I know.
Don't ride your bike at night, folks. You may hit a pot hole, fall off and break your collar bone. Click to read more.
I want to start this blog off by quoting the iconic queen Lizzo... IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME.
Y'all it has been a minuteeeee since I have cracked open my laptop, put Shark Tank on and started typing out my never-ending thoughts. Ready for this one?
Life has been crazy - to say the least. What's new, you ask? (LOL, not like I am not posting every constant detail of my life on my Instagram).
- I launched an APP?!?!?! That was cool.
- I have checked out some new places (Lake Tahoe in the summer!) and revisited some old favorites (Austin, TX baby!)
- I have been busier than ever with my fitness business, brand deals and trying to figure out the MOTHER F'N INSTAGRAM ALGORITHM (It sucks, ps).
- I am still single as hell.
I love Nashville.
THERE I SAID IT!
This past week, I packed my cowboy hat and cowboy boots (I actually packed 4 of each because like… options) and headed to Nashville for the CMA Fest. It’s truly one of my favorite country music festivals EVER and I hadn’t been since before the pandemic. So needless to say… your girl was E X C I T E D.
Not going to lie, I think I am still recovering from that week I spent there? I ate. I drank (a lot). I danced. I sang. I truly thrived. (Click to read more)
Okay, sorry I couldn't resist that one.
But hi, hello, I am finally back in town and catching up on some much needed writing and highly requested blog posts (by highly requested, I mean like 3 people have asked, but hey! Those people matter).
A few weeks back, I had the chance to go to my old stomping grounds and explore as an influencer with Visit Fort Worth. OH YA, SHE WENT BACK TO TEXAS! (Click to read more)
2) What a whirlwind month?! Holy moly. I feel like I am finally sitting down and able to take a breath and while the month of May was pure amazing, nonstop CHAOS... I am thankful for things to slow down (a bit).
If you follow me on the gram, which hopefully you do, you probably saw all the details of my Great 28 birthday bash. (Click to read more)
Holy sh*t I am 28?
Yup, that's right today is the start of my 28th year of living on this planet. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was an idiot in college, dancing on bars and now I can barely stay awake past 11 pm. *Sigh* She's all grown up.
I honestly didn't think I would be super emotional about this birthday or even care about turning 28... I mean I ain't 30 yet... but man, I was wrong.
FULL TRANSPARENCY: I have been a total wreck all week long. (Click to read more)
Long time, no chat... MY BAD.
Life has been a whirlwind for me?! I was traveling, then got caught up with work and a new fitness app, then went to Coachella for the first time (Lord have mercy) and then I got the lovely flu. It's been crazy, to say the least.
But I wanted to come back strong and do a fun 'lil blog post on a topic that love.
FASHION, BABY. (Click to read more)
I know what you are thinking... "Aren't you tired yet?"
And the answer to that is... Yes, yes I am. But I am having so much fun traveling, exploring new places and trying new things! I can sleep when I'm dead, right?
In this blog post, I am giving you guys the scoop on where you NEED to stay in Lake Tahoe. If you follow me on the 'gram, you know I had never been to Tahoe (ever) and I fell in loooooove when I went to visit. I mean, the mountains and a beautiful lake? COME ON. It was like heaven for my little ski bunny self.
According to the internet strangers in my DM's, I have to go back to check out Lake Tahoe in the summer (you better believe I am), but for now let's talk about Tahoe during ski season! (Click to read more)
Before I kick off this blog post about all the do's, don'ts and beautiful sights to see on the lovely island of Kauai... does anyone want to buy a house there and let me move in with you? Any takers?
It is seriously one of the most magical places I have been and I could very easily be convinced to move there (minus the whole "it's way out of my budget and I can barely afford my rent in Los Angeles" issue).
Let's talk about Kauai! (Click to read more)
Who doesn't love a good book?!
...if reading isn't for you, this blog post probably won't be your cup of tea. Or maybe it'll inspire you to pick up a new reading hobby? Who knows!
All I know is that I get asked all the time (seriously, I am not lying about this lol) about my favorite reads. So I figured this week I would compile my top 10 favorite books EVER. From thrillers to romance, to everything in between, let's do the dang thing. (Click to read more)
