The Ultimate List of the Best Millennial Blogs

Every generation is different, but there’s just something about millennials, right? GEN Y is the largest living generation and they’re making a splash across a variety of mediums. As the first segment to truly embrace the internet, millennials are all over the latest and greatest social media platforms and it’s no surprise that so many millennials (like myself) have started their own blogs.

GEN Y has embraced everything about connecting with people online and using their platforms as a way to share everything from their favorite products to what they’ve been up to in their daily lives.

6 Jobs That Allow You To Work Remotely and Travel More

6 Jobs That Allow You To Work Remotely and Travel More

Raise your hand if you love to travel! You obviously can’t see my hand, but it’s reaching toward the ceiling. I’ve shared on my blog time and time again that traveling is one of my favorite things to do. Travel is truly the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. There are so many things out there to do and experience.

Every year I make a list of the places that I want to travel to and then I search far and wide on the internet to determine if there are any deals for the destinations that I have in mind. If I find a decent deal, I’m definitely not opposed to booking it and turning my travel dreams into a reality.

The Best Travel Size Products to Keep in Your Carry-On Bag

The Best Travel Size Products to Keep in Your Carry-On Bag

I'm a huge fan of traveling light and packing my things in carry-on bags. Being able to bypass the airline ticket counter, bag check lines and the baggage claim area at the airport is a major plus. I also love knowing where my things are at all times and having my essentials handy in case I need anything while waiting at the airport or while on board a long flight. 

Since I've become accustomed to packing my things into carry-on bags I've had the chance to test out a lot of travel size products. Before each business trip or vacation I take, I raid the travel size aisle at the store and stock up on my favorite products. I could write a whole separate post focusing on the makeup I pack when traveling, but for purposes of this post I'm going to be focusing on facial, body and hair products. All of these items are products that'll help you get through either a short or long flight. If you need to freshen up while you're on the plane, you can just reach into your bag and pull out any of these items.

Grand Traverse Resort and Spa: The Best Place for a Fall Getaway in Northern Michigan

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone and the holidays are right around the corner, it’s time for me to reflect on all of the fun that I’ve had this past fall. In my opinion there’s nothing more beautiful than seeing the leaves change colors each fall in Michigan. It’s one of my favorite parts of being a Michigander. I’m so lucky to live in a state that experiences all four seasons. The Mitten State has warm summers, crisp falls, cold winters and mild springs, so there are plenty of things to look forward as each season changes.

Taking in the Fall Colors with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2.4 SEL AWC

As much as I hate saying goodbye to summer, I do look forward to watching the leaves change colors every autumn. In Michigan, we have several different shades of red, orange and yellow leaves. Some trees are more vibrant than others, but when you look at the fallen leaves on the ground or a cluster of trees next to each other, the colors are so pretty that you’d think that they were straight from a painting.

Discovering Local Michigan-Made Products with Kroger

Living in Michigan, I have the opportunity to enjoy lots of local products that are made right here in the Mitten State. Michigan is home to the Cherry Capital of the World (Traverse City), plenty of popular breweries like Founders Brewing Co., and Dearborn Sausage Co. No matter what types of food you like, you can find great products - ranging from locally grown fruits and vegetables to snacks like potato chips and pickles -  from every corner of Michigan.

Go Boston Card: The Best Way to Experience Boston

Go Boston Card: The Best Way to Experience Boston

I’ve been lucky enough to travel within the U.S. and outside of the U.S., but there are still several cities and states that I haven’t visited yet. I find inspiration on places to visit by talking to family and friends, researching online, browsing on social media and by reading about destinations in magazines and books. One of my favorite things to do each year is to create a list of cities that I want to visit. Since getting married, I’ve included in husband in this yearly ritual and we work together to figure out which destinations we want to visit together.

4 Must-Have Bags for Traveling

4 Must-Have Bags for Traveling

If there's one thing you should know about me it's that I love to travel and be on the go! Going on vacation and exploring new places is so exciting for me. Whether I'm gearing up for a relaxing and laid back beach vacation or jetting off to explore a new city, I have my tried and true packing process and I always have my necessities on hand so that I'm never caught in a new place without my essentials.

Since I grew up traveling, I can pack a suitcase faster than you could imagine. I've been able to get a good grip on what types of bags to pack all my belongings in whether I'm heading somewhere for a day trip or an extended two-week vacay. Since I do a lot of packing (and unpacking) when I go on trips, I thought it would be a good idea to round up four of my favorite bags to travel with. I own all of these products and I can't wait to tell you all about them!
