As a travel blogger, I am obviously on the go quite frequently (when the isn’t a pandemic, of course). There are a few things that I ALWAYS bring with me when I travel no matter the length of my trip. The number one item I MUST have with me at all times is a reusable water bottle! I don’t know about you, but traveling definitely makes me dehydrated. The LARQ Bottle is the best reusable water bottle for travelers!
I’ve partnered with Ohio. Find it Here. to share this amazing list of Black owned businesses in Cleveland, Ohio. If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am always talking about supporting local businesses (especially in these crazy Coronavirus times) but today I want to specifically call attention to some of the wonderful Black owned businesses in Cleveland that we are blessed to have in Northeast Ohio. Many of these are Black female-owned businesses as well, and you know I love a girls supporting girls moment over here!
For a long time, I dreamed that I would start a blog. I thought it would be a fun project creatively that might turn into a side hustle or even my primary source of income someday. It was something that I thought about for years, but I made excuses for why I couldn’t do it. I just really didn’t know where to start. It can be very overwhelming when you first begin your to-do list. That is why I want to help you simplify things!
I am always a big advocate of shopping small and supporting local businesses, but especially during this COVID-19 pandemic where businesses have been forced to close their doors to the public. During these uncertain times, we must rally together to support our local favorite coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants as much as we can. Today, I want to talk about supporting your local book stores!
During this bizarre time in history that we are living through, it can be hard to remember what day it is, let alone get dressed up to work from home. So many of us are wearing cozy quarantine loungewear almost every day now! People and businesses are struggling to get by. We are all worried about the health of our loved ones. We are all just trying to take this day by day as it comes. Something that has been helping me get through this time is seeing how my community is coming together to support one another despite the physical distance. People are buying gift cards and ordering takeout from local restaurants and shopping online at their favorite local shops.
We are living in crazy times right now. I am sure this is not how most of us envisioned our 2020 would be, but Covid-19 has hit the world hard and we are all adjusting to a new (and hopefully very temporary!) normal as we all stay home and fight the spread of this virus. While none of us would choose this “Shelter In Place” life, it is our current reality and I hope you are all keeping a positive outlook during these circumstances. I have been social distancing for 2 weeks and self quarantined for 1 week now and I am at the point where I need some more things to keep me occupied. Here is what I found interesting while researching free things to do during Covid-19 quarantine lockdowns.
When I go on a longer trip, I really like to wear a watch in case my phone dies or I can’t get to an outlet in time. Travel requires being on time and missing a flight or train is my least favorite thing ever! I am so excited to be partnering with JORD to bring you guys this fun giveaway, and now I will always know the time! Enter at the end of this post to win a $100 credit to JORD!
It’s the first day of summer and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the warmer temps and sunshine to come here in Cleveland!

Today I am sharing 35 fun BFF date ideas to do together in and around The Land this summer.
