I’m always scouting for new hotels to visit when I feel the need to separate from my home, so you can only imagine how thrilled I was to receive an invitation from the Hyatt Dallas/Park Central to take a tour of its property. Although it’s not a full service hotel, the Hyatt Dallas/Park Central offers a ton of unique amenities which makes it the perfect place to lodge for your next staycation
'm finally back from Peru, and I'm ready to share the highlights of my trip. But before we get to all the fun stuff, we need to have a quick convo about my Aeromexico flight to Lima.

If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I became a pescatarian in December. To my surprise, the transition was extremely smooth. Now, don't get it twisted. I still crave buffalo wings and triple bacon cheeseburgers (because who doesn't like the taste of bacon); but I've managed to find several meat alternatives to kill my chicken and pork cravings.
Imagine finding a flight deal to Nairobi for $500, but you just paid rent, car note,phone bill; and the money left over needs to last you until the end of the month. By the time you get paid again, the deal will probably be long gone. Well, what if I told you I may have a solution to your problem?
In May, I sat on the Because Women Love to Brunch travel panel. I , along with two fabulous travel influencers, spoke about road trips, staycations, and flight deals. During our conversation, we also spoke about passports and visas...which, to my surprise, sparked an ongoing conversation.
I’m always asked how I’m able to travel so often. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t have a trust fund, I haven’t won the lottery (yet) and I don’t have a sugar daddy funding my leisure expenses. What I do have is an airline hookup. In fact, I have several.

Last weekend, my friends (Kassia, Cody, Nefertari) and I traveled to Colorado for a weekend getaway. From Cody mistaking a passenger for a flight attendant (and asking if she could throw away his trash) to a hitchhiker trying to force his way into our car (yep, that really happen),

I would be lying if I said I visited the icelandic phallological museum to learn about mammal genitals. I went strictly for kicks and giggles. Someone dedicated an entire exhibition to penises, and I had to see (and Snapchat) it for myself.
Cuba is a hot destination for many Americans these days thanks to some presidential moves by the Obama Administration. People have been booking flights ever since, but there’s a cloud of uncertainty with the current administration’s new travel initiatives concerning Cuba.
Tapas, and speakeasies. and roof gardens, oh my! I'm a self proclaimed international foodie, and I definitely ate to my heart's content during my recent visit to London. A few of my colleagues are from the area, and they spoiled me for the entire week. My food baby hasn't gone away.

Does this story sound familiar? Your friends express interest in taking a group trip. You enthusiastically start planning your vacation. You eventually agree on the location, lodging accommodations, and set a budget that’s reasonable for everyone’s pockets.
Now that I’ve taught you where to find the flight deals, it’s time for the hard part—budgeting.Let’s keep it real. Most of you suck at it! You have money, but you can’t seem to keep it in your wallets. This makes it a challenge to even think about traveling.
Texas is the second largest state in the country, which means there are miles of terrain to explore. If you don’t have enough PTO to fly out to Florida for a week, you can still plan a short getaway in your own state.
