Thought I forgot about my Key West Florida: Part Two post? Well, I didn’t…but it did take me way longer than expected to move this post from draft to published (excuse me while I cringe at how long it took me to post this)! So, here it goes: I hope you all got a glimpse of the beauty and excitement of Key West in my Colorful Livin’ in Key West Florida: Part One. There is so much information that I could pack into these posts about Key West…but I don’t want to spoil all the excitement for you! Continue reading “Colorful Livin’ in Key West Florida: Part Two”
Just thought I’d share with you all a link to view a Q&A interview I did with Rebekah Steen, creator of Goldfish Kiss blog. She’s a total beach babe who takes awesome pictures, provides some pretty relevant advice, and has such cute DIY projects (I’ve made her repurposed tee “rope” bracelets and I’m eagerly wanting to recreate some of her mani/pedi designs). Rebekah’s blog is one of the first blogs I came across, and was really influential in why I wanted to create a blog as well! So it was pretty surreal to get to interview her! And she’s so down-to-earth and full of happiness…which is totally visible through her blog and Instagram.
I’m a contributing blogger for indieSWIM, a swimwear company based in South Florida, so my interview with Rebekah is posted on the indieBLOG. Click here to give it a read and let me know what you think! And I have a few other posts on the indieBLOG, such as a smoothie bowl recipe and some advice pieces for your perusal as well. Feel free to let me know of any ideas or suggestions for potential future posts you would like to see on the indieBLOG page.
How many social media sites/apps are you on? Do you specifically make space on your phone just so that you can add the latest social app? After spending time on your social media account, such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Snapchat, do you find yourself feeling angry and jealous rather than happy and positive? Does your follower count stress you out? Do you ration who you follow just so that you don’t have an uneven or “socially unacceptable” ratio of followers-to-following? How much time do you spend per day/week/month on your social media? Have you ever gone out with friends/family and been more involved with checking how many people have liked your latest picture or with making sure your Snapchat is updated so that your friends know you “have a life” rather than paying attention to the people right in front of you? When was the last time you visited your local nature center, or took a walk at the beach or park, or struck up a conversation with the person next to you at the grocery store? When was the last time you took a run without listening to music? Continue reading “The “Follow-Me-I-Don’t-Follow-Back” Social Media Age: Why A Media Disconnection is Necessary”
Every holiday we look forward to the abundance of different themes and delightful treats that come. Some stores start preparing months or weeks in advance before days like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Brightly colored candy, cookies, and gifts line row after row of the shelves. Valentine’s Day is no exception, as there are over thousands of candy and chocolate products sold leading up to this holiday. If you find yourself tired of the same old chocolate candy piece or heart-shaped sugar cookie then it may be time for a change this Valentine’s Day. Why not break the routine and hone your fancy cupcake baking skills while also making a dessert that will cause your friends to scratch their heads wondering just how you managed to make it.

Parrots squawking while perched on the shoulders of a local. The sweet smell of smooth Key Lime pie evident around every corner. The bright, vivid colors of the hammocks and stores and pubs that line the streets. The sensational feeling on your shoulders from the warm breeze blowing off the Gulf Coast…or is that the Atlantic Ocean? You slowly take in all the excitement that is Key West, Florida. Located on the southernmost tip of the United States and 90 miles from Cuba, this island is conveniently surrounded by both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.
