SHOP THE LOOK
There are certain inventions in the modern world that I personally have a hard time remembering how we ever dealt without. One of the first that comes to mind is Lyft, a phone app that makes finding a ride safe, easy and super convenient! It was only a few years ago (okay maybe like 7 or 8, but it seems like yesterday!) that we had to rely on physically hailing a cab to get a safe ride after a night out (which totally works in bustling cities like NYC, but is a liiiittle more difficult to get in a city like Dallas). With all of the holiday parties and events coming up, I thought it would be the perfect time to partner up with my friends at Lyft to talk about how they can make your holiday season a little more effortless.
As hard as it is to remember life before Lyft, I can recall moments of waiting more than two hours downtown in college just to get a taxi or resorting to the agonizing hour and a half 2.5 mile walk from Sixth Street to West Campus (usually in heels). While remembering these moments make me sad that Lyft wasn’t around during my college years, it also is a reminder of how much easier Lyft has made life these days (and how much I totally take it for granted sometimes!) I love how Cole and I can be getting ready for a weekend event downtown and not have to worry about planning transportation ahead of time, or waking up at 4:00 am for that dreadful 6:00am flight and catching a ride on the Lyft app as we’re walking out the door. This girl is allll about making life easier and Lyft has certainly done that since it came around.
Now that the holidays are quickly approaching, I have the Lyft app situated at the very top of my iPhone (and as you might imagine, this girl comes with a lot of apps). I especially love the Lyft Lux option, which ensures a spacious luxury vehicle for a fancy night out on the town and the Lyft SUV option has quickly become our go-to for travel since we always know there will be ample room for our suitcases (especially since I usually come with two large ones). What Cole and I especially love is how nice all of our Lyft drivers have been!! We have met so many amazing people and have had some amazing late night and early morning conversations thanks to our weekend wedding and traveling adventures over the last couple of years.
Whether you’re going out for a holiday Christmas party, a winter wedding or even need to make a quick trip to the mall but just don’t feel like driving yourself in the traffic, give yourself a with the handy ride service phone app, Lyft. Download it today on the app store in your smart phone!
