Keeping it Fresh This Spring with U by Kotex

Keeping it Fresh This Spring with U by Kotex

By Erin

Spring just arrived, and is in full bloom, which means a fresh start and a new season for style. If you’re a guy you might want to just skip this post as it’s mostly geared for the ladies and might be a little bit TMI for you ;) Unless you’re like a lot of guys I know and just look at the pictures anyways… then you should be okay. Today’s post is sponsored by U by Kotex and has inspired me to become an #UnderWarrior Super Hero and I hope you will join the ranks and become one too! (Be sure to get your free samples as well.)


Ladies! We’ve had enough! We’ve all been doing this long enough. When Aunt Flo makes her regular monthly appearance, sometimes showing up early to the party, getting a head start on us, THIS is when we need our #UnderWarrior gear to help #SaveTheUndies as well as our favorite spring and summer outfits we don’t want ruined! Since I can be a girly girl, I love me some lacy & pretty things, and just like I’m sure the rest of you do, I stop wearing some of my favorites for fear of wrecking them. I always try to be prepared and start wearing them a day or two early, but that first day on Aunt Flow, can sometimes catch you off guard and I too have lost some favorites along the way throughout the years. Thank goodness U by Kotex® 3D Capture Core technology is here to help save the day and your favorite spring outfit (as well as your favorite undies). Forget about those embarrassing leaks and focus on making a clean start for Spring! I’ve joined forces with U by Kotex®  to become an UnderWarrior to help save the undies!


The U by Kotex® line offers women a full range of feminine care products for their periods which includes pads, liners, and tampons. This provides us with outstanding protection that will keep you one step ahead of your period.

The new U by Kotex® Ultra Thin Pads with 3D Capture Core have a one-of-a-kind pad center that locks away wetness to help stop leaks. It’s now available in Cleanwear® pads, AllNighter® pads, and Security pads. Besides the amazing protection these provide, I love how cute the U by Kotex products are! Not only do they allow me to wear my favorite undies, but my favorite spring and summer outfits in confidence and I can hold my head up high and not have to worry about any embarrassing leaks and unwanted stains, ruining my clothing!


I am a very active gal, I love to be outdoors, riding horses, riding bikes, going on a hike… whatever. So I.DO.NOT. have time to let THAT time of the month slow me down with worry about any “accidents.” With U by Kotex with 3D Capture Core, I can continue on with my day without a care in the world.


 You know… just going on a bike ride… ;)

Wordless Wednesday-Carmel By the Sea: A Day at the Beach

Carmel By the Sea: A Day at the Beach

By Erin

With spring break this week, it has me really wanting to take a beach day and just get out of town for a few days. Since I am still working with other things and cannot do that as much as I’d love to, this will have to do for now. A beach day is in order soon! Check out Carmel By The Sea for more info on this beautiful beach and city. I hope to return here soon!

Detour Bistro Bar Opens in Culver City #BestDetourEver @DetourBistroBar

Detour Bistro Bar Opens in Culver City

By Erin

As if there weren’t enough detours already in Los Angeles with all the freeway and street construction that is continuously going on, this is a Detour you will want to take. I took this Detour myself the other night as part of a media preview, and it left me curious to try more. The Detour Bistro Bar has arrived in the Los Angeles area into Culver City. The Detour combines farm-to-table produce with seasonal California and European inspired dishes to create a unique neighborhood  dining destination in Culver City. This westside restaurant  belongs to Los Angeles locals Ranni Kumgisky and Dane Pearson who are long-time caterers. These two are always searching for the most fresh seasonal ingredients to create weekly menus that will keep customers wanting to come back for more.

The Detour is open daily for happy hour, dinner and weekend brunch. Starting April 6th, they will be opening for lunch at 3pm Monday-Friday.

Why don’t we take a look into what the Detour has to offer?


The Detour is a quaint little place, but the decor is very LA. I loved the layout of the space, it made it feel bigger and more spacious that what it actually is. It is a very nice, bright and airy space and also has an outdoor patio you can enjoy on a nice sunny California afternoon or evening.


Best Detour Ever. I love the walls here.


I know many people, including myself who would love to have one of these! So creative.


The menu for the media preview.


We started the evening out with some drinks. From left to right; The Diablo, Honey Old Fashioned, and the Summer Splash. I had the Summer Splash which consisted of vodka, cranberry, pineapple, and sweet and sour. It was very refreshing and not to fruity, perfect for a nice warm spring evening.

Detour-Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos: Cabbage, cilantro sauce, corn tortillas. So simple, yet so good. This was my favorite item from the night. I love shrimp, and these shrimp were pretty darn good, I also love tacos. It always makes for a great combination.


Lamb & Goat Cheese Flatbread: Lamb, Goat cheese, apricot marmalade, and mint. This was also a pretty tasty bite that we tried. Very flavorful and tender.
