What in the world am I?!?!??

I am sooo excited to share that I got my DNA results back last week!!!  I not only found out about my ancestry but I also received my “vitality report”. A vitality report is a snapshot that explains the best diet plan for you, if you may be lactose or gluten intolerant, if you are susceptible…

Ancestry Travel

As many of you know, I am absolutely fascinated by genealogy.  I started my own personal heritage research and journey around the world about 17 years ago.  Though my obsession with my background began at a much younger age.  I remember the first time I had to make a family tree in Jr high school…

Natural Beauty – At home AND On the go

I often get asked which brand of beauty and body care products I use and to be honest, I don’t really have a wildly elaborate beauty regime.  Over time, I have tried different brands for different needs and if they work, I stick to them.  I even enjoy making my own products using essential oils….

Mixing Business with Pleasure in Sydney Australia

Back in 2012 I had the pleasure of visiting Sydney Australia on a business trip.  I was there with Muscle Werks for an event called Filex.  THE BIGGEST health and fitness expo in Australia(and New Zealand).  Think The Olympia or The Arnold in the USA but in Australia.  As if attending the event wasn’t enough, I…

Movin’ on up!

After traveling with the same camera bags for about 8 YEARS and ogling drones for nearly 3 years, I have FINALLY upgraded a few items.  I will do away with my multiple camera delapidated camera bags and consolodate everything into this one super cute and durable backpack! I ordered the USA Gear UBK DSLR Camera Backpack with…

Travel in Style, Without Overpacking!

Let’s face it, we have ALL packed a bag full of clothing and shoes for a trip, thinking we would need ALL of it, only to discover that in the end we only wore about 1/4 of it.   At $25 each way, per checked bag fee, that is $50 you could have spent on…
