Does Not Travel Well With Others

Hey Ya’ll! I have been traveling a little bit, mainly down south. I am now home and super exhausted!

I normally travel alone because I like to do things on my own schedule. Drive where I want and eat where I want. I don’t like to feel obligated to do anything, especially when I travel. This specific getaway, one of my really good friends went with me…this is also the same friend that I traveled to Hawaii with. You can take a look at my older Hawaii post here. This particular friend is my travel buddy for long trips and it works out very well.

Our trip started off good but I’m the type that likes to move in an airport.  I like to get where I am going and fast. She on the other hand likes to stop and buy things and talk to people.  She strolls slowly through the airport, like we are driving down a scenic countryside. BLAH!  I said nothing and let it slide. (Side note: I think Chicago has changed this about me….when in Chicago, keep your head down and walk fast). Carry on.

When we landed in North Carolina and got our rental car, she decides that she needs to drive.  Sure…she then decides to take the scenic route…okay.  Somehow we end up eating at this hole in the wall, in a town outside of Raleigh. Everything was great until the first batch of food poison hits like a wave. LOL! Its comical now but then, I was hurting and extremely livid. This is why I like to have control…. She may have poisoned me. I’m don’t have full evidence but I’m still developing some theories. After about 6 hours of being sick, I felt okay enough to get in the car, armed with ginger ale, saltines, and a very stern look.

The rest of the trip, I am very suspicious of anything and everything we did. Although, I was very alert, I still received; a sprained ankle, jellyfish sting on my leg, and brief loss of vision (due to losing my contact lenses).

I could literally write a novel about this trip…and I just might. I’m not sure if it’s me getting older and I need to have absolute control or I’m just lame.  Either way, I do not travel well with others.



What Women Want


I have been debating whether or not to write about this topic but, f-it. Here it is. I do realize this is a movie and a very cliche title. Anyway…

This post is the result of my best girlfriend and I having a hilarious conversation about her husband, and him not understanding what she wants. During our conversation, we started discussing guys in general and how simple things should But hey, I’m a female, so I’m biased. Also, when I’m saying women, I don’t mean all.

Before writing this, I spoke with around 6 different females and reached a similar consensus for all. Duh. Because research.


First off, women want security, they need to feel safe. This could range anywhere from feeling physically safe, like in a dangerous situation. Or feeling safe in their relationship with you. Safety in these terms mean, they don’t think you’re running off cheating or God knows what. You need to make sure that they know, they are the only ones. Ever. This will save a ton of time arguing about you liking another girl’s Instagram pic or favoriting a tweet. When a girl tells you that she doesn’t care about that stuff. She does because well I’m that girl. Now, I’m getting off topic… To reiterate. Security!

So Fresh and So Clean

I can’t say this enough, guys clean yourself up. Not all guys but you know who you are. You expect women to shave/wax and be all cute and girly. Yea, well you need to do that shit too. You don’t want a lady bush, well we don’t want a man bush. If she tells you it’s fine! LIAR! Shit’s gross. And guys, freaking bathe. Side note, my gf was telling me about her husband coming home after work and he was trying to initiate sex. She pretty much ran from him. Her exact words, “Taylor, I could literally smell how gross he was and was thinking about his nasty, sweaty balls. It made me want to vomit.” You’re hearing it straight from the source people.

“Point Blank. Be Drake”

Motion in the Ocean

“It’s not about the size of the boat, it’s the motion in the ocean.” I literally can’t tell you enough how much this is true. So even if you are a small little guy, you can still rock her world or his world (whichever you prefer). Here’s how….learn to dance. Don’t stop reading. So I have this theory that guys who have rhythm are actually pretty good in bed. Multiple sources have also confirmed this for me. Another one of my friends told me, “My husband is not good in bed. He’s like a jackhammer and it’s not fun for me.” And guess what, her best lay was a guy that could dance. Imagine that! So, break out your dancing shoes and start working those hips. Also, keep it interesting. Don’t do the normal all the time. You can thank me later. 🙂


This is totally one of the most important points. I can’t tell you enough that you should always communicate with your partner. Always. Communicate about everything. It doesn’t matter if it’s stupid. At least they will know how you are feeling. I know a lot of guys who just don’t communicate at all and then you have your girl sitting there like they did something wrong. Point blank, Be Drake.

You Don’t Need to be a Fitness Model

Another point my gf made was that her husband has stopped working out regularly. And it’s causing a crash in their sex life. She’s feeling less attracted to him. Don’t think my girl is conceited but all of us are superficial to a point. And to say that you don’t judge on looks…give me a break. The first thing you see in someone is their looks. This all sounds cold hearted but it’s our animalistic behavior and we cannot avoid science. Just saying. Anyway, back to business. My gf wishes that her husband would still take care of himself. She is not a model of fitness but she does run frequently and eats well. She just wishes he would do the same. So, I’m not telling you to be a fitness model but just be healthy for your partner. Or work out together. I can’t tell you how sexy it is to work out with your partner, but that’s just me.

Listen, I’m not a love guru by any means and don’t think this is a post about my gf’s and I sitting around bitching about our love lives (okay, well it kind of is). My point is, we want guys or girls to know it’s not cool to have a double standard in a relationship. More than likely if you want your girl or guy to do something or look a certain way, then the other probably wants the same. Take this with a grain of salt. If it helps you great, if not, well that’s cool too. As always, I try to help!

Love ya’ll!


Being Girly

Just bought a new polish about a week ago and wanted to share! I don’t always paint my nails because they chip so easily but I have finally found a polish that sticks.  This is about 6 days in!

The color is Perfect Pair 535.  It’s a nude-pink color with a gel base. Totally goes with everything! I bought mine off of Amazon. 1. Because I have and love prime, so I buy everything off of Amazon and 2. because it is way cheaper than other stores.  I also bought a few other colors so I’ll let you know how they turn out asap!

I feel pretty! Thanks ya’ll!

I was late to work…

Now, I’m normally a pretty organized person….. but this morning, I was running super late! I missed my workout and breakfast! I’ve had bronchitis for the past week and still haven’t gotten back into my routine.  Well either way, I was so late. When this happens, I usually grab my go to outfit! It usually consists of a button up, capris and a pair of booties. This is today’s outfit! It is comfortable, easy and work appropriate!

(Button Down Shirt: You can find a similar polo here.)

(Ray Bans Wayfarers; Michael Kors Watch)

(Booties: I got these from Express but they no longer sale them 😦 but you can find a similar pair here.)


My Top 5 Favorite Southern Sayings

When I first moved to the midwest, I tried real hard to cover my accent up.  I felt like people were constantly making fun of me and it was super annoying having people correct me ALL.THE.TIME.  So, eventually I embraced it…and now, I’m me! So with that, I LOVE my Southern Sayings. And here are my TOP 5! I use these daily, well when relevant and they are just so damn cute!

“The porch light’s on, but no one’s home!”

  1. “Hey Ya’ll!” -This is completely obvious! It’s a greeting!
  2. “We are living in high cotton, darling!” -This means we are living good!
  3. “Buggy” -This means a shopping cart.  “Grab a buggy!”
  4. “The porch light’s on, but no one’s home.” – We use this when referring to stupidity.
  5. “Bless it.” or “Bless your heart.” -Now this has multiple meanings.  It could be sympathetic or could mean we think you’re stupid.

Do you have a favorite saying?!
