Buen Camino

I’ve been back home for a day and I’m still trying to process the amazing past two weeks I had in Spain. Two weeks that seemed to go by fast and slow at the same time. Two weeks that kicked off with a week-long trek down the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. I didn’t know…

Jonathan Taylor Thomas Was a Little Shit in Man of the House

Many moons ago, before alcohol poisoning via Four Loko was trendy, my sister and I popped a couple cans and revisited a favorite childhood classic, Man of the House. Remember that movie? With Jonathan Taylor Thomas (here on out referred to as JTT) and Chevy Chase? Here, let me refresh your memory: This movie was…

Boeuf Bourguignon and Anthony Bourdain

I was at my desk at work, engulfed in one thing or another, when my phone lit up with a new Google Hangouts notification. It was from my husband. “Hey, sweetest heart. I have a challenge for you, if you’d like to try it.” I was intrigued. My husband is unpredictable when it comes to…

Beauty Junk Roundup: Silk 18 Shampoo

This isn’t so much a “roundup” as it is more of a review of just one product: the Silk 18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics. Once again, Maple Holistics reached out to me to see if I would be willing to do a review for this product (see past reviews here and here), and I agreed….

Race Recap: Terrain Race Orlando

Last Saturday, I completed the Terrain Race, a 5K obstacle course at the Spyder Mx Action Sports Complex in Wildwood, about an hour’s drive west of Orlando. It was my third obstacle course race since I started dabbling last year, and, while I didn’t get as filthy as I did at the Spartan Race, I…

Girl, Level Up Your Snacking

Two weeks ago, I went with some friends to see Rachel Hollis presents: Made For More.¬†While I took more away from the documentary than I thought I would, this post will not be about the movie. It will be about the snacks. As I mentioned on my podcast, I have been on a medically supervised…

Introducing: Frag Chat With the Fragrance Chick

So, I started a podcast. That’s a thing. I wanted to give it a few episodes before I started cross-promoting it to make sure it was going to be something I stuck with and that I was a good “fit” for the platform. Well, the latter is questionable, but I’m in it for the foreseeable…

2019 Lameness and Resolutions

I almost considered leaving the title of this post as just “2019” as I couldn’t be bothered to come up with something witty. Then I tacked on the rest because I felt like it still needed some sort of descriptor. Still not witty, but they can’t all be winners. And that’s the winning attitude I…

2018 Central Florida Spartan Sprint

Last Sunday, I participated in my first ever Spartan Sprint. And now I’m hooked. For awhile now, I’ve been wanting to do some sort of mud run/obstacle course race, simply because it looked fun. Also, I figured if these bitches could do it, then I surely could. For those who don’t know, Spartan is one…

In Which Alexa Saves My Life

So the title of this post is a little dramatic. Amazon’s Alexa did not save my life. I was not in the midst of some crisis where I found myself teetering on the ledge of a building before shouting, “Alexa, should I jump?” and then heeding Alexa’s sage advice NOT to kill myself. What actually…
