Reasons Why I Love Cleveland: Somewhere in Time 1969

Have you ever been to the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society? I am so excited to announce that I’m partnering with them to help promote their upcoming event, Somewhere in Time 1969. This is Cleveland History Center’s annual signature event which helps raise money to support education and public programs for nearly 35,000 students, families, and seniors. Disclosure: In exchange for helping to promote this event, I have received two complimentary tickets to this groovy gathering. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. The event features live music, a full bar, a costume contest, silent auction and more! I’ve never been to this party, but based on last year’s pictures, it seems like an awesome event! I’m taking my boyfriend, Brian, and we are currently brainstorming what costumes we should wear. Inspiration from WholeSaleHalloweenCostumes.com: Should we do it? lol If you are interested in attending, please click here to buy your tickets! I’ll be sure to update my post with event and costume photos, but for now…peace out!

Pin this to save for later! Fan Girl Friday: Kat, World Wide Honeymoon Question 1: Why did you start your blog? “I say it was probably a quarter-life crisis. I was hating my job in public accounting and was struggling to find what it is that I cared about and wanted to pursue a career in. It was then that I realized that my favorite thing to do is travel, and after having traveled to over 28 countries as a solo traveler, traveling with friends, and now traveling with my husband, I wanted to write about it and give advice to others. It wasn’t until I was planning my wedding and learning about travel hacking, the art of collecting miles and points for free travels, that I knew I wanted to teach others about that too! I also travel a […]

Some of the best things in life really are free. Recently I’ve been inspired to opt outside more often and luckily enough, my home is located only 40 minutes away from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This park has over 140 miles of trails to explore and protects over 33,000 acres of land. Read on to discover the many reasons why I love the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Pin this to save for later! Reasons Why I Love Cleveland: The Cuyahoga Valley National Park Autumn is a beautiful time of year to visit the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). I always find myself gravitating towards spending more time outdoors during the fall months, as the weather is crisp but enjoyable, the leaves are vibrant, and I know the impending doom of a cold and snowy Northeast Ohio winter. By no means am I an outdoorsy hiking expert, but below are a few ways I’ve really been enjoying the CVNP. These ideas will be great for newbie outdoor adventurers to mimic. Bike the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. While this historic trail has 11 trail-heads in the CVNP, I like to drive from Cleveland to Peninsula and start biking there. […]

Product Review of Formulate

Product Review of Formulate

Do you love your hair and wouldn’t change one thing about it? If you answered yes, I’m guessing you are in the 5-10% of women who would positively respond to that question. If you are vehemently shaking your head, you are with the resounding army of females shouting, “No! I hate X about my hair!” While I fall somewhere in the middle of those two categories, I was excited to learn about a new company called Formulate. This hair care company offers customized shampoo and conditioner that are specific to your needs, wants, lifestyle and environment. Take a look at my product review of Formulate. Product Review of Formulate Screenshot: https://www.formulate.co/ Please note: I was invited by Formulate to review their product in exchange for a complimentary shampoo and conditioner customized to my preferences.

Some example questions they ask you include where you live (climate), what look you are trying to achieve (more volume, less dryness, increased growth, etc.), and your current hair condition.
