Snarky Tales: Humor From a Girl With A Dog & A Blog

Snarky Tales from a girl with a dog and a blog

So, I am super proud of this: My first online publication on Issuu! It was hard to pick which posts should be included in this installation so I went with a bunch of my greatest hits. Hope you like it because I laughed re-reading these. I can’t believe these have all happened to me, but they have. Sit back, relax, grab a drinky-poo and enjoy! BTW – The easiest part of creating this magazine was the name: Snarky Tales: Humor From A Girl With A Dog & A Blog Snarky Tales: Humor From A Girl With A Dog & A… Continue Reading

Tinder for Shoes? Shoe Swipe

tinder for shoes - shoe swipe

We all know that I have been on Tinder a time or 100 and for some reason no matter how many not so great guys I have met on there, I go back for more. It is addicting. Like gambling, but I am ready to get lucky….get your mind out of the gutter. I am ready to get lucky….get your mind out of the gutter.Click To TweetPowered By CoSchedule It is so fun showing people Tinder and how easy it is to just x out someone’s face like yelling “NEXT” at the top of your lungs via your phone. The key to this app is totally the ease of it. We all love images but not a lot of people like to read. So, the app is a prefect combination with big pretty (and not so pretty pics) and very little content. It feeds to our knee jerk reactions of what we are attracted to and what we are really not attracted to. Too bad for me my picker is WAY off but that is a completely different blog post. So, now what if I told you that there is a new app out there that combines a few of my favorite things in the same way Tinder works? Well, who doesn’t love shopping online and what better item to shop for than shoes???? Shoes don’t care if you gain… Continue Reading

21 Things I Can’t Travel Without

21 Things I Can’t Travel Without

If you have been keeping up with me that is better than what I am doing. I was actually in one place for longer than two months in July and August and my suitcase called to tell me that he needed a workout, so I obliged. People always tell me I need to put roots down but every time I try to put down the anchor other things pop up in my schedule that need to be attended to for work. Just this week, I traveled from Scottsdale, AZ to Beverly Hills, CA and then next week I will travel… Continue Reading

Get Some Satisfaction: Win $100 Official USA Network’s “Satisfaction” Kit

win USA network kit worth $100

What gives you satisfaction? Do you measure your satisfaction by job success? Wealth? Love? Happiness? I think most of us would agree with Mick Jager when he sings “I can’t get no satisfaction” in life. Achieving satisfaction is harder than ever these days with the advent of technology. I am not talking getting to the next level of Candy Crush but I am talking about communication. Text messages, emails and non-verbal communication lead to many issues interpersonal relationships never experienced before (like mine). Like life was not complicated enough – now, we need to read between the lines and guess… Continue Reading

Dating Warnings: The Shirt Test

Dating warning: The shirt test

I have learned a few things navigating the dangerous shark infested dating waters along the West Coast and that is make sure you date a guy before, on and after the first of the month to make sure he sticks around for another month. Don’t get too close too fast because you never really know who or what you are dealing with. Just like the infamous “Dear John” who boasted that he created DSL and walked on water when in reality he couldn’t afford a bottle of Evian and slept on his sisters couch. the infamous “Dear John” who boasted he… Continue Reading

Join me for #mediachat and how to stand out amoungst the crowd with a blog and social media channels

Today is a great day (well, besides the dating life part – lol) because I’m honored to be the guest on Aaron Kilby’s #MediaChat. I met Aaron via twitter and his invitation is truly a testament to the overwhelming support of my social media network no matter what zip code I reside.

At least I am tired this time from doing so many new things. I am “re-tired” after looking at all the pics I wanted to include in this post so let me try and… Continue Reading
