There are a lot of reasons to love the 2019 @acura #rdx but one of the best (& most fun) is the premium, 16 speaker sound system. The music simply surrounds you from all sides. It's actually kind of magical. Read more about it today #ontheblog.  #drive2learn #agirlsguidetocars #drive2learnacurardx #sponsored
The winter rains have hit, and I’m dreaming about my recent stay at the @miramonteresort in @visitgreaterps. I’m wishing I were back soaking up sun and serenity by the cool blue Hideaway pool, or decompressing under the warm waterfalls of the River Bench in the #thewellspa. I’m hungering for the healthy breakfast and lunch options on the #citrusandpalm menu- just the right balance of flavors and textures. If these scenes look and sound good to you right about now, check out the Instagram highlights of my friend @kirstenalana, where you can link to her story and enter to win your own stay! #sponsored #drive2learn #drive2learnmiramonteresort #pamperinthepalms #drive2findyouroasis #desertlife #spagetaway #socalgetaway @agirlsguide2cars #swipeupclub
The iconic 2018 VW Tiguan 2.0T SEL Premium and our very own @kymri are the perfect pair! Surfs up sister! . . She test drove the supersized SUV and here is what she had say "The Tiguan is the perfect surf safari mobile, easily accommodating 4 surfers, their boards, gear, and even a dog or two. Additionally, the SUV designed for a supersize family (we’re talking mom, dad, and 5 kids), works equally well when it’s just me, my dog, and my 9 ft. longboard heading to the beach." . .

The interior design of the 2019 @hyundaiusa Veloster is eye catching. I love the large display and infotainment features. You can read more about @71atechef experience in it on the blog http://bit.ly/2PfPwtW #drive2learn #drive2learnhyundaiveloster
Do you love scenic drives? 🚘 Rising quickly out of the city of Palm Desert and overlooking the Greater Palm Springs area, California State Route 74 is a gem of a drive that takes you from the desert almost all the way to the ocean. Just 10 minutes out of the city the highway curves like the waves of the sea and rewards you with expansive views. 🏜 To see more of my trip and my 3 day travel guide for Greater Palm Springs, read my newest blog post!

There’s no denying VW is an iconic brand favorite for Californians and #surfers everywhere. So it makes perfect sense that my year’s TOP PICK car for surfers (and dogs) is the 2018 VW Tiguan 2.0T SEL Premium. It’s the perfect surf safari mobile, easily accommodating 4 surfers, their boards, gear, and even a dog or two. This supersize SUV designed for a supersize family (we’re talking mom, dad, and 5 kids), works equally well when it’s just me, my dog, and my 9 ft. longboard heading to the beach. I loved how the Turbo kicked in, and the tech interface was the easiest I’ve ever encountered, so user-friendly! I’m grateful I had the time to get to know the #tiguan, in partnership with @agirlsguide2cars for the first #drive2learn conference sponsored in part by @vw.

AD Have you ever been to Coachella in the Palm Springs area? I hadn't, but during a recent #drive2learn conference with @agirlsguide2cars, I drove over to the conference grounds in the @VW Passat GT.  Talk about fun! @couponmamacita and @rippedjeansandbifocals were my partners in crime... er... I mean partners in fun and excitement -- and boy did we have a blast!  The area is beautiful, the Passat is super fun to drive, very chic looking, and a nice sporty ride.  We had a ton of fun just cruising around the area and checking everything out with the sunroof open and a nice breeze blowing through our hair.

The Volkswagen Passat GT Family Sedan is Sporty! We now have a @VW in our family: vintage Beetle, so reviewing this car was perfect! For less than $30,000 MSRP you can drive this beauty home. #ad Link in bio. . . . Co-driving it from Los Angeles to Palms Springs for the @agirlsguide2cars  Drive 2 Learn  conference with @Rippedjeansandbifocals & @jesicaj1 was a blast! This sporty, family sedan was comfortable, stylish, and had enough power under the hood to give that hefty feel when driving that we all love so much.  We had MORE than enough space fo our luggage. Remember the days when American cars had lost space and big trunks? I barely do. . . . #drive2learn #drive2learnvwpassat #cars #review @VisitGreaterPS #drive2findyouroasis #drive #drive2learncared #agirlsguidetocars #carstagram #passat #volkswagen #influencer #autos #travel #travelblogger #cargram #car #visitpalmsprings #palmsprings #coachella
Have you visited Palm Springs? From Phoenix it's only a 4-5 hour drive. Gorgeous weather, luxurious resorts, golf, restaurants, shopping... 🌞🌴 . . I was there a few weeks ago with @agirlsguide2cars and need to make plans to go back. Right now I'm loving mid century modern design and it's everywhere there. @visitgreaterps . . #sponsored #drive2learn #drive2learnfindyouroasis #findyouroasis #palmsprings #visitpalmsprings #palmspringsresort
πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ SWIPE LEFT πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ To see the whole thang πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ . πŸ‘› I love getaways that include good food, gorgeous resorts and awesome friends.
.β€¨πŸš— This particular weekend I was able to attend the FIRST automotive conference thrown by @ScottyReiss, the Founder of @AGirlsGuide2Cars.
.β€¨πŸ« We were treated to a GORGEOUS suite at the @MiraMonteResort in Indian Wells, California (right by Palm Springs). The weather was PERFECT! Sunny skies and cool breezes!
.β€¨πŸΆ The Miramonte is a pet-friendly resort that is perfect for families. Lots of things for the kids (lawn games, pool, bikes to rent and lots of space to run!) as well as a heavenly spa with treatment rooms for massages and other services for the adults.
.β€¨πŸ‘¨‍πŸ‘©‍πŸ‘§‍πŸ‘§ I’ll definitely be back with my family during Spring Break - it’s hard to find nice pet friendly 🐾resorts that cater to families. (Oh, AND it’s part of the Hilton Family!) . 🌾 One neat thing about the resort is they have their own garden where they grow their own herbs, citrus, olives and avocados that are used by the chefs in the Hotel restaurants! Everything is plentiful, you can pick the fruit right off the trees!
.β€¨πŸ”Œ πŸ”‹ Another thing of note that this techie can appreciate was the number of USB ports available throughout the suite! I know, I know…I’m a geek….but when I travel, I bring my laptop, iPad, iPhone, external battery packs, bluetooth headphones and it all needs juice by the end of the day!
.
πŸ₯° During this conference, I got to drive some pretty amazing cars and meet/get to know some pretty awesome ladies like Shani (@beautyandthebump) and Sonia (@mixedupclothing) who I drove to Palm Springs with, my BMW Performance Center driving partner Suzanne (@momconfessionals), my foodie ladies: Dawn (@SassyAutoChicks), Erin (@horsingaroundla), Donna (@dangerouscupcakelifestyle), Kiera (@KierraReilly), Kim-Marie
If you have been following me on social media you know that a few weeks ago I was in Sunny Palm Springs, California at the A Girls Guide to Cars #drive2learn Conference. While there I had the pleasure of experiencing several vehicles, but there were a few that stood out just a bit more than others and one was the newly redesigned 2019 Acura RDX. Click on link in bio to learn why this one stood out!

Do you have a dream car? I have one, or two, or more, that I think I’d like. But I didn’t think a convertible was for me...until I drove this Mercedes AMG E53 Cabriolet during the @agirlsguide2cars #drive2learn conference. I was always thinking about the sun, and my hair, and then I took the car for. Short spin around at dusk -ooohhhh, this is nice, seeing the stars, breathing in the fresh air, enjoying the drive. Something to consider as you shop for a car - take the @car_ed_connect car quiz. Answer 11 questions, and the quiz will suggest car makes and models that fit your personality. I was skeptical, and then I took the quiz and thought the results made sense - and included some cars I hadn’t considered but seem to fit my life and driving style - one of them was the Mercedes SLC convertible roadster! Another was the Mercedes SL convertible roadster. Maybe I do need to consider a convertible!

ad🌴🚘 Thinking of getting a new car but not exactly sure what to buy? Or just curious to see what kind of cars a fun quiz says you'd like? Then take a look at Car-ed.com and find out what kind of cars would be best suited for you. I can tell you it is without a doubt 100% accurate!! How do I know that? Well I took this quiz while we were at @agirlsguide2cars Drive2Learn conference during the @car_ed_connect session and it told me the Prius Prime would be a top choice for me! You know what car I bought last November?? The Prius Prime Advanced!! So I'd say this thing works pretty darn well! Take a look at my Prius Prime and why I love it (huge Nav/multi-media system, wireless charging, space in the back for all my horse stuff) along with the results from my Car-Ed quiz! See what cars this can connect you to and narrow down your search! It's updated constantly with all the newest vehicle makes and models.

THIS was a great way to start a Tuesday! I caravanned with @theworldcarawards team up #angelescresthighway in the @acura #rdx for photos and fun before hitting the #laautoshow.

A panoramic sunroof is especially important when the weather is dark and stormy, like it was in #la yesterday.

#ad🌴🚘 When going on a road trip with your crew this is the way to go. The Lexus RX 350 L is the original luxury crossover with an added 3rd row to accommodate families and drivers who need extra passenger space. I love how comfortable and spacious it is and that those of us sitting in back have heated seats too! This one also comes equipped with a premium Mark Levinson 15-speaker sound system, a 12.3" Navigation System and safety features galore. Plenty of space in the back for all of your luggage too.

What’s a more natural high than even the best cup of coffee and a bigger boost to self esteem than any award or compliment? Confidence, that comes from within!! . Real talk: It’s not something that comes easy to me. I’ve dealt with poor self esteem for my whole life. There are solid causes for it that make it something I’ll always struggle with. I also know that the times I can work through it positively, finding ways to overcome from a place within myself — those are the good days. . Few things help that happen more than being able to do something I LOVE that I’m also good at. #drive2learn included the opportunity to spend a day @BMWPerformanceDrivingSchools on the test tracks, living out my fantasy of being a race car driver for a few hours. Something I’m good enough at to earn a spot in the top 3 at the end! Something I truly adore because it feeds a part of my soul which longs to be free or for even just a second, to experience no limits. At the very least to push the speed limit and cross 100, 120 miles per hour. I can’t put into words how exhilarating it is and even more so when you know how to handle a car well enough to do it without fear. . If you’re like me, especially my fellow ladies, I urge you to give this a try here at the track in Cali or one of their others. The instructors are superb, their safety standards are top notch. So whether it’s your first time racing or you’ve had experience before like me, with their setup, it’s an experience that will have you feeling πŸ’― more empowered and confident than you did when you walked in. . And bring a partner like @tomikatalks who was THE BEST! 🏁 http://bit.ly/2NEhJLn
Oh pretty sushi roll, you are too pretty to eat...almost. This tropical roll was part of the main course for our special #drive2learn conference dinner. A short drive from our hotel is the El Paseo shopping street filled with small@ships and eateries. The tropical roll at Domo Sushi was tuna, salmon, and avocado topped with mango and kiwi! Every course was delicious, and the staff was charming, funny, and worked to accommodate dietary restrictions. #hosted
The new 2019 Lexus UX is one beautiful car to drive, whether you're cruising the streets of Greater Palm Springs, going on a family road trip, driving to work, or sitting in dreaded California freeway traffic. At 29/37/33 MPG for city/highway/combined, coming in at $35,875 for the model in the photo -- fully loaded with the Premium Package, including Blind Spot Monitors -- it's a deal for anyone who loves a sporty ride that still seats five and rides comfortably. I'm also loving the six speakers and the Lexus Multimedia System that helps me keep my eyes on the road while providing music, navigation and all the other fun stuff that makes it so convenient to drive. Check out the new Lexus UX and let me know what you think! #lexusux @Lexususa #ad #lexus #drive2learn @agirlsguide2cars #drive2learnlexusux #cars #car #cargirl #drive #driver #drivelexus #palmsprings #indianwells #socal #californiatravel #visitcalifornia #travel #traveler #roadtrip #cargram #adventure #explore #datetree #dates
#ad When I travel I like to find good restaurants. In @visitgreaterps they have tons of tasty restaurants.  One night we ventured out to @tbahama for dinner. Doesn’t the salad look yummy? It was.

Like I said with my recent photo of the vintage Beetle, @vw has been a part of my life as long as I’ve been alive. So I was glad to be assigned the 2018 Passat GT V6 to review during #drive2learn with @agirlsguide2cars. . It’s an emotional connection that draws me to Volkswagen vehicles and I have a deep affection for VW in every aspect be it their graphic design and branding to the look of the vehicles and the colors they come in. I admit I’m not exactly an unbiased opinion! 🀷🏻‍β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ So perhaps it’s no surprise, I give this special edition Passat πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ. From the red GT detail on the front grille & exterior trim to the technology package to the heated seats and the way it handled as I accelerated on a fully open road — this car felt GREAT to drive. It behaved less like a four door sedan and more like a larger sports car; playing nicely into my need for speed that I’m always trying to balance with safety. And safety features it does have in abundance. . I also loved how easily it, like other VW models, connected to @apple CarPlay. Though the one thing I would have improved upon if it were my vehicle to own, would be a slightly bigger monitor so the system is easier to read at a glance while driving. Luckily I didn’t have to worry about that this time around because I had @goricegirl as my co-pilot driving from Palm Springs back home to Los Angeles. . At less than $30,000 MSRP, I’d walk in and buy this tomorrow if I was serious about owning a car right now. It certainly would be a nice thing to have here in California with so many open roads I’m longing to explore!! Then again, there’s also the last ever Beetle calling my name... either way, this conference proved that though I might flirt with other car brands, it’s VW that I always come home to πŸ˜‰β€οΈ
Helloooo Friday. I can see you up ahead. Now hurry up and get here!!! . Every Thursday I like to share a look back at something I’ve done in the past, and although this isn’t THAT much of a throwback, today I’m remembering my whirlwind three days with @agirlsguide2cars in lovely Palm Springs (#sponsored) . First, @visitgreaterps is stunning and I am kicking myself for not staying an extra day. . Second, my experience at the BMW Performance Center was crazy amazing and completely outside my comfort zone and now driving my minivan makes me sad. I wrote a blog post about that...you can check it out through the link in my profile...I hope you read it. . Third, big kudos to @agirlsguide2cars and @scottyreiss for what they bring to automotive journalism and female consumers. Women buy cars. We drive cars. We want auto content for US that isn’t a bunch of technical mumbo jumbo about torque but that isn’t dumbed down fluff, either. I’m excited to be a part of their community and can’t wait to share more of what I learned at the #drive2learn event. . What are you excited about today, besides the weekend? . . #drive2learnbmwpcw #drive2findyouroasis #palmspringsliving #palmsprings #drive2learnmiramonteresort #luxurytravel #girlswholovecars #bmw #travelgoals #travelgram #californiatravel #socal #tbt #throwbackthursday #agirlsguidetocars #rippedjeansandbifocals #rippedjeansandbifocalstravel #visitpalmsprings #carsonyourterms #visitgreaterpalmsprings
One of my favorite things about living in California, is how many different kinds of adventures I can have in my own home state. For instance it felt like a mini Mediterranean getaway when I joined @agirlsguide2cars at @miramonteresort for #drive2learn recently. #sponsored . With so many olive trees and a bit of Italianate architecture, it had me reminiscing about past trips to Italy. We also did test drives in the brand new Lexus UX 200, the Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet convertible and the VW Passat GT V6. And there were classroom sessions with women who absolutely blew me away in their savvy ability to make a living doing something most people only dream of. I’ve known the founder of A Girls Guide to Cars, @scottyreiss, for a while now and it was amazing to get to spend quality time with her exploring a subject she’s so passionate about. . I also loved getting to know @hejdoll (who kindly took the first photo in this carousel of me on our last day), @tomikatalks & @stacieinatlanta who I drove to Palm Springs with from Los Angeles, @goricegirl who I drove home with and had the most life changing conversation with... and so many more, PLUS reconnecting with @luxurytravelmom who has also recently moved to California from the East Coast. . I’m grateful to the car companies for partnering with us, Miramonte and @visitgreaterps for hosting such a great group of women that I am so excited to hopefully work more with in the future and to Scotty for having a vision of women in the car industry that is so inspiring. πŸš™

Look at this beauty. The 2019 Lexus UX 200. 😍😍 The perfect ride to cruise around Palm Springs in during the @agirlsguide2cars #drive2learn Conference. And the color...I am loving the red. The features in this beast are pretty amazing too, especially if you have a lot of devices to keep charged up and connected, it has Wi-Fi powered by Verizon, you can connect up to 5 devices. It also has all the other fun extras like push start button, moonroof, Apple CarPlay, heated seats, and safety features like blind spot monitoring and backup camera. It's sporty, cute and eco-friendly. With all the extras it's just under $36K.

The sign behind us reads “Caution: Adults at Play” so we took that kind of seriously. It was a lot of fun to drive the 2019 Volkswagen Passat through Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley with that sunroof popped open. No “are we there yet.” No “can you change the station to Kidz Bop.” Not a juice box or a goldfish cracker in sight. Yep, adults at play is a pretty perfect way to describe this situation. . . . . #sponsored #drive2learnvwpassat #drive2learn #drive2findyouroasis #passat #girlswhodrive #agirlsguidetocars #coachella #palmsprings #southerncalifornia #socal #travelgram #travelblogger #rippedjeansandbifocals #rippedjeansandbifocalstravel #shedrives #drivelikeagirl #palmspringsliving #coachellavalley

Y'all are not going to believe the time I had at the @agirlsguide2cars conference in Palm Springs #california 🌴 this past week. . This red cutie πŸš—πŸš—πŸš—might just be a great 'after carpool' car for me which I am about ready to purchase. I want something sporty, cute, eco-friendly but that I want to drive. The 2019 Lexus UX 200 (the U stands for urban) feels like a compact crossover that comes with all of those fancy extras that I like (push button start, moonroof, blind spot monitoring, Apple CarPlay, heated seats, more USB ports). I could get everything I want on it for under $34K. For me to do everything I need to do in the city of #atlanta, I'll get 29 MPG or better. . I met my soul sister @luxurytravelmom who might be able to recite more of #talladeganights than me (@jasonconnerty knows that's a HUGE deal). My riding buddies, @TomikaTalks @kirstenalana, @CouponMamacita and @thecreativesahm really made this experience way more fun. Thanks ladies! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ I drove some really fun cars and I drove them really really fast. I mean...DAMN...I got up to 130 MPH on the @BMWPerformanceDrivingSchools track. #iwannagofast #iwannagofast I really pushed myself and didn't always feel comfortable but I had so much fun. My coach, @luxurytravelmom was extremely motivating. See her video!  Thanks to @scottyreiss, @Kymri & crew, @patrickpharris @Car_ed_connect, @visitgreaterps & @dinegps + everyone else who supported the conference. 😘 Loved the food from @tkbbakery, @domosushielpaseo 🍱 and @miramonteresort.

In the summer, I drink gin and tonic. In the winter, I switch to Manhattans. And while it’s not really winter in Palm Springs, the dry air made the 50 degree temperature feel awfully chilly. What better way to end a fabulous @agirlsguide2cars conference at @miramonteresort than with a Manhattan, dinner, and great conversation. I loved that the bar had a few choices of Rye for me to select for my Manhattan, and there was a Luxardo cherry at the bottom. Perfection! #drive2learn #drive2learnmiramonteresort #kieracocktails #hosted
Don't look back. You're not going that way. . I spent a whirlwind three days in Palm Springs earlier this week with @agirlsguidetocars at their #drive2learn event, which is the first-ever conference for women auto writers. I learned a lot about cars, driving and how to create kick-A auto content, which is to be expected, but I also had some time to think about where I want to go over the next year. Of course, I believe in reflection but I've learned to acknowledge mistakes and learn from them without DWELLING on them. . As far as years go, 2018 has been a pretty awesome one. Although this the time of year I usually start getting all reflective, this year I find myself looking ahead, strategizing and planning for next year...because I know 2019 is going to be an even better year than this one. . About my ride: The 2019 Mercedes AMG E53 Cabriolet is sleek, classy, and powerful...and there's just something indescribably awesome about driving a convertible with the wind blowing through your hair, amiright? @mercedesbenzusa  #travelblogger #travelgram #dontlookback #rippedjeansandbifocals #rippedjeansandbifocalstravel #mercedesbenz #benz #benzo#coachellavalley #shedrives #drivelikeagirl#cabriolet #carsonyourterms #travelvibes#traveljournalist #drive2learn#drive2learnmbusa #palmspringsca#mercedesamg #palmspringsliving#palmspringslife #e53 #palmspringsstyle#luxecars #ad

Yes, please! As someone who avoids dairy, I'm always excited to find vegan sweets. @iwcoffee's vegan cookie was the perfect treat I needed before our trip back to LA to fly home. The turkey bacon avocado sandwich was quite tasty too. . Fabulous few days in Palm Springs driving cars with @agirlsguide2cars. Hope to visit again soon - from my house in Phoenix it's only a 4 hour drive, perfect for a weekend get away. . . #sponsored #drive2learn #palmsprings #palmspringseats #visitpalmsprings @visitgreaterps #vegan #vegandessert #findyouroasis @dinegps
These BMWs were ready and waiting for us to take them on one of three road and technical courses during our recent driver training classes at the BMW Performance Center! We spent a few hours squealing tires and screeching our brakes in a variety of models, including the M3, the M4 and the M550. I took the M4 to 125 mph and omg what a rush! This car girl is HAPPY!

You know what’s fun? Cruising around in a car you thought wasn’t for you and discovering that you could see yourself driving it in the future. @simplysassystyle and I took this beautiful blue Lexus RX 350L our for a spin in Indian Wells earlier this week. And when we weren’t ooh-ing at the gorgeous scenery we were ahh-ing at all the features of this luxury SUV. Thanks to @agirlsguide2cars and @lexususa for the opportunity to test this vehicle. #drive2learn #drive2learnlexusrx #planestrainsf1 πŸ“· @simplysassystyle
Lunch and Learn with Car-ED was not only tasty but fun and very informative! The dynamic duo created a fun and simple quiz with 11 quick questions that help identify cars that meet your needs. Like my granddad used to always say, knowledge is key, so head over to www.car-ed.com/quiz to take the quiz and start the buying process. (Swipe πŸ‘ˆ). . .

Today is a special day. One of my favorite people -my sister, my surrogate, my sometimes chef πŸ‘©πŸ½‍🍳- has a birthday today! Happy birthday @71atechef  Doesn’t she look great with the 2019 Pre-production Lexus UX?  Thank you for all that you do for me like attend the @girlsguidetocars conference, give me cooking tips and being my chauffeur lol. I appreciate you. 😘  #drive2learnlexusux #drive2learn #sister #birthday #ad

I cherish every moment with my big brother Ben - he’s to credit for my passion for surfing, cars, and healthy living. We’re kicking back and swapping stories - comparing the @bmwusa M3 I lapped at 132 mph at the @bmwperformancedrivingschools, and the Limited Edition 2015 John Cooperworks @miniusa sitting in his garage. We both chill around his house in sweatpants & bare feet; there’s always a guitar within reach, organic persimmons and Mexican papaya to quench our conversations, and toasted warm slices of quesadilla cake from Porto’s to satiate our inherited sweet-tooth gene from mom. It’s uncanny to me that we’re 20 years apart in age and over 150 miles in distance, yet we live in harmonized synchronicity. He’s my big brother, I’m his baby sister; and we are family...physically, spiritually. And that’s nothing short of TRULY awesome. ✨#sponsored
Comfy. Cozy. And actually really cute. These words describe this monogramed pjs set I received from @landsend. I especially appreciated that it had a slim fit but not tight, especially in the chest. And the pants are actually long enough for me! I plan to be lounging in this set all winter!  And what an amazing place to "try" these pj's out! The @miramonteresort has gigantic rooms with the softest beds. It is such a tranquil place, perfect for getting a great night's sleep!  #drive2learn #drive2learnmiramonteresort #mylandsend #beachesmoms #socialmediaonthesand #turksandcaicos #hosted #monogrammonday #monogrammed
