My friends, it is March…which means that there’s a pretty big college basketball tournament going on.

This week, I’ve partnered with Foster Farms to make sure you slam dunk your game viewing parties and I’ve decided to share my top tips for an awesome time!

How I Became Even More Enthusiastic After the 2018 #WeAllGrow Summit!

Happy International Women’s Day everyone!

What a day. Without planning it, today I wore my Society of Women Engineers polo, I went out to lunch with a female coworker/friend, I went on group run with my #EnthusiasticAboutRunning group (comprised mainly of women), and I went on my social media accounts to see my feed filled with inspirational stories of women.

Today, this past weekend (and honestly every day of my life) has been all about women supporting women and I AM HERE FOR IT. I had the best four days at the Weallgrow Latina summit this last weekend in beautiful Long Beach, California and I can’t be the only one experiencing summit withdrawals. So much inspiration, empowerment, growth, learning opportunities, mentoring, yoga, swag, beautiful views, and support.

WeAllGrow Latina is a network of women that connects influencers/bloggers with brands but also empowers Latinas by hosting a summit every year in California.

I attended in 2016 (you can check out that post and video here!), missed last year (because I was officiating a wedding) but was thrilled to be able to return this year.

Check out 10 reasons to join me at next year’s summit; 2019 cannot come soon enough!

5 Wallpapers From Downtown Vancouver To Inspire You To Visit!

This post is sponsored by Airbnb. As always, all opinions are my own.

A few months ago, I visited Vancouver for the first time ever to celebrate my friend’s last few nights of being single and we had a freaking blast. We splurged a little and stayed at an extravagant Airbnb in Downtown Vancouver with beautiful views and it was so worth it! If you’re not familiar with Airbnb, it is a great way to travel if you are trying to save some cash. Airbnb is a company that allows people to rent out rooms, apartments, or entire homes for travelers! Feel free to use my Airbnb link here to save $40 off of your first Airbnb stay.

4 Cathedrals To Visit On Your Next Trip To Europe!

I’ll be in Spain and Italy in less than two weeks which has me reminiscing on my very first trip to Europe back in 2015. A big part of that trip was admiring some of the most beautiful cathedrals I’ve ever seen in my life.

I haven’t always been Enthusiastic About Cathedrals, in fact, what started out as a cute thing with my mom…kind of just escalated. On my first Europe trip, my mom told me that she was going to really miss me so to help her, I decided to take a photo of every cathedral I encountered and send it to her. She has always loved cathedrals and I thought it would be a fun way to sort of bring her along on my trip.

I will of course continue the tradition and send her cathedral photos from Spain and Italy so I figured I would share the photos I already had with all of you! Check out 4 of my favorite cathedrals in Ireland, Belgium, France, and Germany! You can follow my live adventures on Instagram to see me discover even more cathedrals!
