How to Become a Travel Blogger and Get Paid to Travel

Ever wonder how to become a travel blogger and get paid to travel? If you love to travel, this has probably come across your mind and wondered how to go about doing it.

I know I have. While I didn’t start as a travel blogger and still don’t consider myself as a travel blogger per sé, I have done comped travel and got paid to travel and write about it. You can find some of my writings under the Travel and Lifestyle section of this blog.

Travel blogging has become huge the past few years and many individuals have gone on to become a full-time travel blogger and are living “the life.” I must admit the travel blogging lifestyle is pretty luxurious. However, just like any business and blogging, travel blogging is can be a business and you must treat it as such if you would like for it to be your source of  full-time income eventually. It also takes a little bit of time to take off and you must put in a lot of effort at the beginning. However, the perks can be very rewarding, especially once you start getting paid to travel and write about it.

How to Lose Stubborn Body Fat Effectively Through Cryolipolysis

Do you, ladies and gentlemen, have any stubborn fat that no matter how much workout you do, it just won’t go away? I know I personally do. My problem area has always been my lower abs and no matter how much lower abs workout I do, I just couldn’t make it to go away. I honestly, I gave up on it. For years, since I was young, I’ve had it. My mom said it’s because I had a bad posture when I was growing up and I was always slouching. It could be. But I wanted it to go away. After awhile, I stopped trying. Until I learned about cryolipolysis.

What is cryolipolisys? According to wikipedia, it is a non-invasive (non-surgical) body contouring treatment used to reduce fat cell volume by freezing. Basically, it involves a machine that suctions the area that you want to get rid of fat from and freezes those fat. Your body then excretes the dead fat through your lymphatic system which is usually through sweating and urine excretion. Be sure to watch the video below.

Summer Outfit Inspiration: Embroidered Chambray Romper + HUGE Giveaway

I’m really panicking internally that summer is almost about to be over. Although we have longer warmer days here in Texas, it sure does get cold too.

I’m a winter baby and am not thrilled that my birthday often falls on a cold day or night. I love spring and summer and always likes to keep our house warm during the day which drives my husband crazy because as soon as he walks in the door from work, he sweats. Ha! But 80 degrees and higher is my comfort zone. I know it’s too hot for some but I’d take it anytime over 72 degrees and lower. 

But you can’t blame me as well because spring and summer fashion is just too cute! I know fall and winter fashion is great too but let’s be honest…it’s a lot of effort! You have to put on 3-4 layers to feel cozy and warm. But with spring and summer fashion, a lot of times, it’s one or two pieces.

Summer Outfit Inspiration: Yet Another Embroidered Off-Shoulder Dress

Isn’t the embroidered trend such a darling? I think it’s really pretty and hope you like it just as much as I do. What’s not to love about it? I know for some it can look old-fashioned but for those of you who loves the Southern style, I’m pretty sure that this trend is dear to you!

If I tell you that this embroidered off-shoulder dress is only $19.99, would you believe it? You better believe it is because it’s true. It’s a little sheer so you’re going to need a slip underneath or if you’re like me, you’d wear boy shorts. Ha! Otherwise, it will make a good swimsuit cover-up for any of your upcoming getaway! Gotta love the bright primary colors too. Don’t you think?
