randomness that is… why southwest airlines will always have my allegiance.

Everyone please stand and remove your hats.

I pledge allegiance… to Southwest. 

For my flights all around America (and Mexico too).

And to the republic, for which it stands.

One nation.

Under God.

Indivisible.

With liberty.

And free TV, snacks, and leg space for all. 


I love flying Southwest Airlines.

And to be honest, when I search for flights that’s usually the only place I go to look.

Anytime I’ve searched other places, the ticket prices seem pretty ridiculous compared to Southwest and even if the tickets are a few bucks cheaper, it’s an airline that charges for bags.

Wack. 

But let me give you eight reasons why I love flying Southwest.

1. Wanna Getaway Tickets.

Fort Worth Selfie

(Because no good road trip starts without a selfie first lol)

I live for spontaneity. Though I am a planned down to the inch type of girl, I love the times of my life where I can just get up and go. So when my dad called and said he’d be heading to Fort Worth, TX for a conference, I jumped on the opportunity instantly, even though it was a legit 4 hours away.

(So maybe I missed him a little bit lol)

What I wasn’t expecting though, was to find the gem that is the JFK memorial. Now I’m sure you know the story of JFK’s assassination so I won’t insult your intelligence. BUT what I didn’t know was that he addressed a crowd at Hotel Texas (now the Hilton where we stayed at on our impromptu trip) the night before that fateful day. So naturally, Fort Worth honored him with this beautiful memorial (pictured below).

If you’re ever visiting Fort Worth, or passing through, or whatever you may be doing around that area, I would definitely recommend at least driving by and taking a peek.

And while you’re in the area, stop at Frankie’s for a frozen margarita. They’ll get you right. 😉

why summer 2015 was the greatest summer ever.

Anybody who knows me knows I love to travel.

Like…I’d drive around in a RV for a year straight if I could.

But since real life duty calls, I have to sneak in trips when I can.

This summer, I fit in as many as my PTO and budget allowed.

Some people called it, “A World Tour”. But I called it, “The Greatest Summer Ever”.

roadtrippers.

ready for take-off.


It all started out in Minneapolis, Minnesota…a very, very random place but home of one of the biggest hip-hop festivals in the country, Soundset. After attending Soundset last year, I felt like it was mandatory to do it again. Some of the headlining acts included J.Cole (my fave!), Big Sean (my other fave!), Ice Cube, and Ludacris amongst others. AND to add to the fun, I recruited one of my closest friends to join the boyfriend and I.

BUT…then it rained…and rained…and rained.
THE WHOLE TIME. NON-STOP. NO SUN. NO NOTHIN’!

Now that didn’t mean the turn-up stopped because it definitely didn’t.

ponchos on fleek. #heyboo

I was actually told by another concertgoer that I should’ve been on stage with Big Sean because I knew the words to every song he performed. LoL

I almost got into my first fight in life being this close to the stage… *shrugs* lol

Long story short, Summer 2015 started off with a rainy bang.
