5 Reasons To Check Out Can Can Wonderland in Minnesota!

This post is sponsored by the Roseville Visitor’s Association. As always, all opinions are my own.

Have you ever gone somewhere and been so overwhelmed by the amount of awesomeness radiating from within? That is exactly how I felt when I first stepped into Can Can Wonderland in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

I was told that I needed to add Can Can Wonderland to my bucket list because of the epic mini golf area but when I got there, I realized that there is so much more than golf here.

Can Can Wonderland is a warehouse-like building from 1889 that houses so many entertainment options. Their brochure reads The World’s Greatest Warehouse-Turned Artist-Designed Mini-Golf, Cereal-Malt Shop, Amusement Park, Art Gallery, Variety Show, Music Venue, Eatery, Arcade, Cocktail Bar, Gallery with Secret Pachyderm Speak Easy In The History Of Mankind. That mouthful tells you all that you can find within.

Crossing Off Bikram Yoga From My Bucket List At The Foundry!

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

When people see me juggling the different activities in my life (work, travel, social life, gym, blog, non-profit, etc.) they tend to freak out a little. I, however, remain calm because I have a secret weapon: yoga. I love yoga because it’s the time where I slow down my life a little. It’s my favorite kind of exercise because it’s good for both the mind and the body. I have tried regular yoga, piyo (pilates-yoga), but one type of yoga I had yet to try was Bikram Yoga.

I know that many people are curious but also nervous about trying Bikram Yoga, so as your faithful Queen of YOLO (You Only Live Once) and enthusiastic bucket list friend, I tried it and I’m here to tell you all about my experience at The Foundry.

4 Dishes With Green Chile That You NEED To Try in New Mexico!

I just recently got back from my 4th trip to New Mexico and every time I go, the thing I am most excited about is the food. Don’t get me wrong, New Mexico has beautiful state parks, amazing tourist destinations, and a ton of culture…but their food is out of this world. Particularly because of the fact that they love their green chile. I wasn’t a huge fan of green chile until I went to New Mexico for the first time a few years ago, but now I am obsessed. If you’re like me, you would think that they would only add green chile to a couple of things but I am here to educate you! New Mexicans will add green chile to just about everything, so I’ve decided to round up 4 dishes that you absolutely need to try next time you visit. I hope you enjoy!
