29 Things I Have Learned by 29
I am officially entering my last year in my 20's.
Also, hi! How are ya? Long time, no talk on this ole blog.
Like I always do, I wanted to drop some wisdom on my birthday because that's just what I like to do (and not to toot my own horn, but I think I am pretty good at it).
Birthdays are my absolute favorite, not only because it's an excuse to dress up, throw parties and be as sparkly as I want without anyone being able to tell me anything... but because it's also a chance to do some serious self reflection. (Click to read more).

If you are shopping for any western event or country concert, just remember... WWMD? (Click to read more)

2022 & My 'Yes Year' Reflections
It's officially 2023.
How. On. Earth.
I think it's safe to say that many people look forward to the new year, especially those who had a particularly tough previous one. The first day of January represents so much more than a new number that you see on a calendar or a fresh new planner that you crack open.. It represents change, new beginnings, a fresh mindset and a chance to start over. For many, January 1st feels like a big sigh of relief.
But for me...
January 1st feels like saying goodbye.
Sounds strange, I know. Stick with me here... there's a point to this blog post I swear.
As many of you know, I decided that 2022 was going to be my “yes” year. (Click to read more).
Mallorca, Spain: Travel Recap + Recs
Hi my fellow travel lovers!
I am going to make this one simple and to the point...
If you ever have the opportunity to go visit Mallorca (AKA one of Spain's Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean known for beach resorts, sheltered coves, limestone mountains), you absolutely must.
I have been to my far share of cool destinations. Africa, Italy, Qatar... the list is pretty length! (#blessed) Out of all of them though, I can honestly say that at the tip top of my list is...
All Things Barcelona: Travel Recap + Recs
Let's talk BARCELONA. I've been back for about a month (procrastinating this blog post) and I am finally ready to spill alllllll the details on my recent-ish Spain adventure.
Unsure on what to do while in Barcelona? Looking for a solid itinerary? Want to hop around to a magical island afterwards and don't know which one to pick? Curious on the best areas to travel solo?!
Got you covered.
Let's dig into it, shall we? (Click to read more).
Trust Your Gut, Girl.
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)
A Girls Guide To Solo Travel
You know what I am good at?
- Making lists.
- Oversharing on Instagram.

The list truly can go on and on. ;)
But you know what I am really BAD at?

All Things Portugal: Recap + Recs
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.

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.
Nashville: Travel Recap & Recs
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)
