    Girls’ Day Brunch

    Make Time: Girls’ Day Brunch If you remember my blog series called “What 30 Year Old Candice Would Tell 20 Year Old Candice,” you’d remember Lesson 3: Make Time for the Ones You Love.

I also used that day to join some of my favorite friends for a girls’ day brunch in the comfort of my friend’s, (Jessica’s) home. No Need…

    My Visit to Alcatraz Federal Prison

    Alcatraz, AKA “The Rock” I used to visit San Francisco as a child with my family. As many times as I’ve gone, I have never gotten to see Alcatraz. I was so happy when Alcatraz Cruises offered me this amazing opportunity. Visiting Alcatraz is just something you have to do when you’re in San Francisco. I was amazed and surprised by all of the little gems and interesting facts I learned along the way. I don’t want to give everything away, but I do want to share…

    My San Francisco Trip: Chinatown

    Chinatown, SF–Where I Learned Culture Makes the World Go ’round We went to Chinatown on the last day the trip because I heard it was one of the coolest places to see. The Uber ride was somewhat long. Along the way, I looked at my surroundings and saw no sign of this quaint section of town. After a sharp right turn, Chinatown seemed to appear out of nowhere. The sky was filled with red lanterns. The sounds of traditional Asian-inspired music filled the air with…

    Take Your Swimsuits on Land

    Myth: Swimsuits are for Water Only I want to put the myth that swimsuits are only meant for water to rest. Why this works–swimsuits come in the coolest patterns and don’t get me started on how perfect swimsuits contour to your body and slay your life away. Not to mention the fact that they keep you much cooler during the warmer months. I want to share some of my tips with you so you can get the most out of your swimwear. 1. Fun Patterns…

    Springtime is Blazer Time!

You don’t have to be going to a business meeting to enjoy wearing a blazer anymore. You can put all kinds of different accessories together to add to your look and accentuate your overall style. They’re perfect for brunch with your girls, or a date night with your favorite person. When I wear my blazers, there…

    Reduce Waste–Even on the Go!

    Don’t be Wasteful The average person generates about 4 pounds of trash a day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. Americans make enough to fill Busch Stadium from top to bottom twice a year. This amount of waste equals about 200 million tons of garbage per year (source: dosomething.org)! I believe in the mantra, “have less and do more” and I think that this should apply to everything. Not just material items. Everywhere I go, I bring a water bottle with me…

    Earn Money Back from the Places you Already Shop

    Get Some of that Money Back in your Pocket Being a blogger (especially if you’re new) is definitely an investment.
