    LandRover – Your Ultimate Adventuremobile

    If you follow me on the social medias and were wondering last week if I had upgraded Pokey the Prius, have no fear, she’s still here. I joined B-Metro Magazine and Angie from Birmingham Mommy for a fun-filled night at Jaguar LandRover Birmingham’s Grand Open House. The trend right now is to Craiglist-yourself an old VW bus or Sprinter van, resurrect it, and customize it for the sport of your choice. While DIY-ing an adventuremobile is all well and good, we all know that it’s just pulling lipstick on a pig – the vehicle will still be old and will forever hemorrhage you money. So why not invest up front…

    Suburbia Gets Lofty – 2015 Parade of Homes

    Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned working with B Metro Magazine for the 2015 Parade of Homes? Well, I came, I paraded, and I fell in love. I headed to the Parade of Homes (organized by the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders) excited to immerse myself back in suburbia. And I did, kind of. After seeing a few of the homes, I noticed something interesting. I felt very comfortable, very stylish. Very…at home. These brand new, stunning houses shared a lot of similarities with my 1920s converted warehouse loft. Gone were the white picket fences, the formal dining rooms, the identical bedrooms with 2.4 kids and a Golden Retriever…

    2015 Birmingham Parade of Homes

    I had so much fun with the B-Metro blog team at the Alabama Auto Show last week that I decided to work with them again! Plus, it’s a lot more fun than painstakingly writing out my race recap from last weekend. This time, I’m working with the 2015 Birmingham Parade of Homes—which starts this weekend! Y’all. This is way better than Christmas. I love looking at houses. No joke, it’s one of my favorite pastimes. When I was younger, my parents would toss my sister and me into the car and drive around in search of cool or unique houses. As I got older, I upped my game and started sneaking into…

    Live From The Athleta Red Carpet

    Last Tuesday (yes I’m late—no Internet is peaceful in theory, annoying in real life) I had the pleasure of live broadcasting the grand opening of Athleta in Birmingham as part of the B Metro blog team. Chances are if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, you saw my posts. Chances are greater that those who follow me on the social medias are no longer reading my blog. Or my friends. #Ikid #ornot Athleta’s party was hosted by B Metro Magazine—they helped generate hype for the grand opening, offered food and wine, and got Lisa, Abby, and me to help promote the event in real time. I had obviously heard of…
