#BayAreaUnite: Sports Teams Raise Money For NorCal Fire Relief and Resources

I am a Bay Area girl through and through and feeling helpless living in Arizona watching the devastation of these wildfires in Northern California.

I am so proud of my Bay Area sports teams rallying to provide assistance. ***BAY AREA TEAMS UNITE TO DONATE $450,000 TO SUPPORT NORTH BAY AND CALIFORNIA FIRE RELIEF EFFORTS*** All of my favorite Bay Area sports teams are raising money to support those affected by the devastating fires….

It Must Be Love: 4 Relationship Material Qualities In Men

  Dating is hard but here are a few guydlines for you from Laura! Take it away…. Dating in the 21st century is a minefield. From Bumble to Tinder, it’s hard to meet new people without vetting their online dating profile first. In fact, it’s difficult to meet new people in general because no one talks face to face anymore! So, finding out about a potential love interest’s personal qualities isn’t easy. Is he joking? Is he lying? Is he real?! Hopefully, he is legitimate in every sense of the word. But, to figure him out for real, you should… Continue Reading

Yesterday, I was glued to the TV and Social Media waiting to hear from all of my friends in Vegas. It is my second home and devastated to see what happened to so many innocent young concert goers. Music is my life and could have easily been at that show. I have a place across the street at the MGM. My heart aches for all of the people and families involved. I have several friends with terrible stories of people who did not survive and it is heartbreaking. Love Las Vegas and pray for everyone involved. This picture was taken… Continue Reading

Harvey’s Hungry: Lending A Hand And Feeding Over 10,000 People

This post is a follow up to my first blog about Hurricane Harvey and the relief efforts to feed the hungry on the front lines in Houston.

Heroes In Houston: Cake & Bacon Feeding The Front Lines

I have written a few posts in the past on the difference between social media influencers and celebrities in which there are many. But, today I want to address something different. This post addresses perhaps the most important aspect of being a social media influencer and that is using social media influence for the most important need of all: the good of humanity. I could discuss the super saturated social media world with everyone claiming to be a blogger or influencer now but instead I want to embrace the fact that we are all influencers in one way or another….

A picture with a bunch of ladies surrounding you. 6. A picture with a bunch of guys so I have… Continue Reading

Thanks to Laura for this great post! Take it away…. At a time where blogs and online publication are full of articles designed to advise women on how to behave in their relationships, it seems important to remind yourself of what you want. You live in a complex world that is in constant evolution.
