Confession: I used to absolutely dread packing for a trip. I avoided it like the plague and would often wait until the morning I was leaving to pack or stay up until after midnight the night before (which always gave me zombie status on my first day of travel). Since I began blogging and have started traveling much more in the last couple of years, I’ve quickly learned that having a good packing strategy + the right luggage is key to a successful, stress-free trip.

I’m so excited to team up with my friends at Lipault and Dillard’s to share some of my best tips on packing perfection. Click on the read more button below to read my tips.

PS – calling all my DFW gals, I’ll be sharing the full scoop on my packing tips this Saturday, May 6th at the Dillard’s at Hulen Mall. Come join me at 1:00pm or 2:15pm to mix, mingle and hear all of my tips.

Back to My Roots

**I’ve partnered with Clairol to create this post.

Confession: I’m not a natural blonde. Or at least I don’t think I am. I’ve been highlighting or coloring my hair in the salon since I was 12 years old, and I couldn’t tell you what my natural color would look like today, but it’s not the platinum blonde color I try to keep up with. Lately, I’ve been traveling so much that maintaining my hair has become tougher than ever. Luckily, a little birdie told me about Clairol Natural Instincts, and now I can maintain my blonde hair from home.

As promised, this year I’m featuring more interior posts on my blog, starting with little reveals in each of the rooms of our current house (and we’ll be moving by the end of the year – so there will be more to come!) So far, I’ve revealed my colorful chic office, our entryway credenza and bar cart, our living room revamp and even talked about our new mattress in the master bedroom. You may have noticed our bedroom was a little bar eat the time, which is why I’m so excited to show you what we’ve done since then, thanks to a bedding and decor refresh with my friends at Unison Home.

SHOP THE POST

The mouse is out of the bag…this girl is a major Disney parks lover! Between Disney World and Disneyland, I’ve visited the parks nearly a dozen times in the last few years (and even had my bachelorette party there – catch the details here!), but you may be surprised to know that many of the trips were for RunDisney races. After completing my third and fourth RunDisney races at the 2016 Wine and Dine Half at Walt Disney World (I even got to be in a video with the Oh My Disney Team!! Click through to watch it!) and the Super Heroes Half at Disneyland with my friends from Mistfit (they make the most amazing activity trackers!!) I’ve decided to put together a post rounding up all of the reasons why YOU should totally run a RunDisney race, featuring photos and details from all of my RunDisney experiences. Whether you like or love Disney (or are a total Disnerd like me!); whether you’re an avid runner or have never really ran at all, RunDisney races are the perfect way to get fit and have a ton of fun along the way.

Click the read more button below to read all of the reasons running a RunDisney race is the best idea ever + read about my personal experience at the four RunDisney races I’ve completed, along with some tips for any first time RunDisney runners.
