What Happens When You Drive A Tesla Model X into the Virginia Mountains (Part 1)

Visiting the mountains in Virginia was actually a priority for me when I got a job offer in Norfolk more than a year ago. I remember being blown away when Johnny and I made the cross-country trek from Nebraska. It was then I decided we had to make a trip. I got the thrilling opportunity to work with Rent an EV. Erick and Chelsea are a couple who understands the hustle and are working to build a business while helping others get a feel for driving electric vehicles. After an orientation, we got the keys to a Tesla Model X! In case it’s not obvious from my Instagram stories, Johnny and I love, love, love Tesla. It’s a goal to have one of our own, so being able to rent one was incredible. We brought along our good friend Toan, who gets credit for these stunning images… Read more…

Red, White and Blue :: Fourth of July Style

‘Merica baby! Happy Fourth of July y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw I spent my Fourth of July weekend in Washington D.C., which was a blast. I’ll do a full travel guide post soon, but until then I am sharing my favorite Fourth of July style. If this tank looks familiar, it’s because I blogged it two years ago. My friend Olivia accidentally left it it in my bag when we were roommates at Miss USA. I blogged it, but sadly had to return it to her. This year, it’s back and I now have one of my own. It is perfect for pairing with jeans or distressed shorts. I love this All-American Girl tank because it’s easy to style with jeans or shorts. Plus, you can also throw it over a swimsuit as a cover-up. Read more…
