Savasana in the Sand: Beach Yoga with Farmdog Surf School

On our last trip to the Outer Banks, we rented a surfboard from Farmdog Surf School. As I was browsing the list of rental items and classes, I discovered that they offer a beach yoga class. Now, I love the beach and I love yoga, so the opportunity to combine the two made perfect sense. […]

Sun Protection: Blue Lizard Sunscreen Review

I recently received my very first VoxBox from Influenster. I don’t often get pretty purple boxes full of complimentary products in the mail, so let’s just say I was a bit excited. There may or may not have been dancing involved. Here is a quick little pic (of the VoxBox, not the dancing) … If […]

My Quest for Comfort with Vanity Fair and ‘Women Who Do’

This post is brought to you by Vanity Fair lingerie and BlogHer. Honestly, I don’t know how all of those historic women managed to do all they did with the sadistic undergarments they wore back then. Tight corsets and even tighter bustiers with a bra-zillion buttons and strings … I can barely boil water without […]

Busch Gardens’ second annual Food & Wine Festival is going on now through June 29 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Guests at the Williamsburg, Virginia theme park can purchase sample-size portions of native food and beverage items from a variety of countries and regions. Most of last year’s culinary regions have returned. Austria is one […]

Busch Gardens Ambassador Blogger Meet-Up and Opening Weekend

I just had the best weekend ever. The weather was beautiful (it’s snowing now, but let’s not dwell on that), I got in a ton of walking time, rode some fun rides, saw a couple of shows, smelled some lovely spring flowers, met the most adorable puppies on earth and learned about a really cool […]

Five ‘Fs’ for Fitness

Reebok’s motto (according to the little hang tag thingy on my most recent purchase) says “Find your own fitness.” I like that. Whether we’re into fitness for the fun of it, for health reasons, or for the competitive spirit, and regardless of whether we’re running, bicycling, jogging, walking, or swimming, we are up and moving. […]

Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town 2013: Blogger/Media Preview

From pine-scented pathways and colorful conifers to whimsical wreaths, sparkly garlands, and more than six million lights, it’s all in the details at the fifth annual Christmas Town event at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. An all-new decorating tour, animal encounters, joyful musical shows, and the park’s always delicious food and beverage choices enhance the thrills of […]

Athleta is coming to Richmond, Virginia at Short Pump Town Center

When I find something I like, I tend to stick with it. I’ve used the same brand of pen for nearly 20 years (Pilot, in case you’re wondering), and I’ve owned a Ford for at least 18 years. Clothing, on the other hand, is something I’m a little more fickle about. If it fits and […]

Howl-O-Scream 2013: Busch Gardens ups the ante for Halloween events everywhere

  How do you take an already great Halloween event and make it even better? If you’re an ordinary theme park, you add themed dining to the venue and call it a day. If you’re Busch Gardens, you add themed dining and insert amazingly talented actors into it for an extraordinary dinner theatre experience. Oh, […]

Darius Rucker Rocks Richmond at Innsbrook After Hours

Newly appointed Grand Ole Opry member and front man of Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker performed to a sold out crowd at Richmond’s Innsbrook After Hours concert series. The Thursday, September 6 performance at the Snagajob Pavilion just snagged its place at the top of my list of best concerts ever. Brinn Black, a […]
