Workout Gear at a Discount :: Nike on eBay

Does cute workout gear motivate you? It certainly helps motivates me! I’m partnering with eBay to share how I shop for some of my Nike workout gear. I cycle through workout gear quickly since I workout at least three times a week. That’s why getting my workout gear at a discount is important to me. Saving money is always a good thing! This is where eBay comes in. Did you know 81 percent of all items sold on eBay is new? Plus, you don’t have to wait around to bid with the Buy-it-Now option! Simply click on that button and you’re done. The seller will ship within two business days and you’ll have your new workout gear at a discount before you know it. Shipping is mostly free, too!

Beach Vibes :: My Favorite Sandals for Summer

One of the best parts of living in Coastal Virginia is being so close to the beach. It truly makes me feel so grateful and inspires me each time I’m there. Summer is a time for adventure, exploring and trying new things. Today, I’m partnering with DSW to share my favorite sandals for summer and to talk to about where I hope they’ll take me. Before moving to Coastal Virginia, I didn’t really care for sandals, which is crazy to me! Between traveling, heading to the beach or just popping out of my apartment to pick up food, I prioritize comfort. That’s why these DSW sandals are my favorite sandals for summer. They’re so comfortable because unlike other sandals, they have a little bit of arch support. I appreciate how I can just slide them on and be ready to go. During summer, I want to soak up the beautiful weather, which means I don’t want to spend time putting on shoes before going outside!

Hustle :: The Power Within and How I Style My Hair

I’m a big believer we all have something to offer this world. We all have to know our value and should bring that to each day. T3 Micro asked me to be part of their Power Within Campaign and I was honored to say yes! This campaign is about sharing our unique story and experiences defining who we are. They asked me what’s my “Empoword”, aka what ignites my inner spirit and inspires me to feel confident. The word empowering me most is hustle.

For as long as I can remember, my parents taught me the best thing I can do is work hard, really really hard. Not only did they teach me this, they lived it. My whole family immigrated to the U.S. from Communist Vietnam. My Dad, a former South Vietnamese soldier was in a concentration camp. When they arrived in Texas, they immediately started working. My Dad worked at 7-Eleven overnight while attending college. My Mom worked as a tailor at the Crescent Hotel while also going to school. They both raised three kids while doing this. When my Dad was able to get a better job, his 7-Eleven had to hire seven people to replace just him. Now that is hustling. You cannot control how much raw talent you have or your abilities, but you certainly can work extremely hard to make up for it.

My Hair-Care Routine for Sleek + Shiny Hair

You may have seen Selena Gomez and Priyanka Chopra in Pantene Pro-V’s ads with ever so shiny and glossy hair. It made me wonder if the brand had something more to offer. Not to mention, when a shampoo has close to 600 reviews and almost 5 stars, you try it. So I revisited an old favorite, yet this time it has a completely new formula, the Smooth & Sleek Shampoo with its matching conditioner and added it to my hair-care routine.
