My best friend won Miss Yorba Linda 2017 and I was soooooo emotional 😭  My heart is full for both Shannon and Cheyenne’s win and I cannot wait to see them compete at Miss California this summer!! As a matter of fact, I can’t wait to see all the whole Miss California Class of 2017 this summer. It looks like Mark and I will be taking a roadtrip up to Fresno this June 😍

How To Meet Genuine Friends Online

If you’re like me and you’re into online culture — the culture of YouTube, social media, connecting with people virtually, etc. — then you probably, most likely, know or know of people that you feel like you can connect with and feel like you already know on a personal level. I am so deep in this realm of “online culture” that I’ve reached a point where I can’t even distinguish the difference between an online friend and a friend IRL (or “in real life”).

What to Wear on a Cruise for the Captain’s Dinner

It’s common for cruises to have an elegant evening where you can dress up, have fancy drinks, and celebrate. Celebrations can include anything from the Captain’s Welcome Dinner – which is what we are dressed up for in this blog – to holiday celebrations to themed nights to farewell events. Generally if you are taking a 2 to 5-day cruise, you can expect at least one nice evening to get primmed and proper. If you take a cruise that is six days or longer, expect that be graced with at least two awesome nights of playing dress up.

First Day at Sea with Princess Cruises

Because I was a cruise-noob (aka “a first timer on a cruise”), I was amazed by every little thing I saw. There are so many pools, jacuzzis, and kiddie pools. The unlimited amount of food was to die for. They had tea time! Right after breakfast, about ten activities are happening at once in different parts of the ship. It was a lot to take in, but my absolute favorite part of the first day was the view. If Moana were out last year, I would have thought of the “How Far I’ll Go” song as I looked at the line where the sky meets the sea… it calls me and no one knows how far it goes 🎶
