4 Things To Do in South Lake Tahoe

4 Things To Do in South Lake Tahoe

There are a handful of places in the world that I just can't stay away from. One of those places is Lake Tahoe. Shortly after my parents got married, they lived in Reno. They went to Lake Tahoe fairly often to partake in outdoor activities like hiking, sailing and skiing. As my sister and I grew up, we had the chance to visit Lake Tahoe numerous times with our parents in both the winter and summer seasons. It has become a really special place for my family and we visit over and over. 

Back when my husband and I first started dating, I would tell him about all of the cool places I've been lucky enough to travel to. I would always talk to him about Lake Tahoe and I would tell him how I would love to take him there one day. That conversation turned into reality because we visited Lake Tahoe over Memorial Day weekend and during the week last week!

19 Tips to Survive Summer Travel Season

19 Tips to Survive Summer Travel Season

Traveling during any season is great, but there's something about traveling in the summer that makes going to a new place and experiencing new things extra exciting. For one, many people take time off during the summer since it's a prime time to use vacation days and spend time with family or friends. With the warmer weather during the summer months, there are more opportunities to be outdoors and do various activities like biking, walking around in a new city or even eating on the patio of a new restaurant.

I myself have lots of plans to travel this summer and I can't wait! In case you missed it, I touched on my 2017 travel plans in a post a few weeks back. If there is one thing that I am extra stern on when I travel, it's safety. I am always aware of my surroundings and I'm always watching what other people are doing. I think it's very unfortunate that people prey on tourists, but in today's world it's not uncommon to hear about things that go wrong when people travel.

3 Beauty Products Passed Down From My Mom

3 Beauty Products Passed Down From My Mom

Like most girls, I first learned about makeup from my mom. I remember looking through her drawer in the bathroom that housed all of her beauty products and wondering what each one was for. As I got older, I became more and more curious about the products she was using and why she used them. 

My mom worked full-time as I grew up and when it came to makeup, she always preferred a simple look. Eye shadow, a coat of mascara and some lipstick was all she ever needed and she pulled it off so well (and still does). 

In today's post, I wanted to share three beauty products that I started using as a result of raiding my mom's makeup drawer.

How to Ace an Exit Interview

They say that when one door closes, another one opens. When it comes to your career, you might close the door yourself in pursuit of a new opportunity. Job hunting is quite the process and the feeling of accepting a job offer for a new position can be bittersweet. On one hand it’s exciting to move on to a new role and begin a new chapter of your life, but on the other hand leaving behind coworkers and a role that you’ve become accustomed to is sad and a bit scary.

The 15 Most Instagrammed Places in the World

Instagram has certainly changed the way people capture and share photos when they travel. With hashtags and location tags, people can easily search for any destination and skim through photos posted by others. I have definitely searched location tags to find photos from other travelers before heading out on a vacation or trip of my own. There's something so cool about seeing shots from others - you can find cool places to visit, new restaurants to try out or even fun activities to partake in during your travels.
