Female Toplessness

Female Toplessness

The double standard allowing male toplessness but barring female toplessness needs to end. My brother can walk outside and feel the warm sun on his bare chest without shame, hesitation, humiliation or fear or legal repercussions. Yet I am prohibited from experiencing this simply because I am female. To condemn me for my gender and anatomy, neither of which I chose, is wrong and keeps me and millions of other women from living our lives to the fullest with the…

Los Angeles: Truly the City of Angels

Los Angeles: Truly the City of Angels

I moved out to Los Angeles after I graduated from college because I was interested in acting. I loved Calabasas and found a wonderful place to live. I did extra work on sets such as Glee (Lea Michelle is just as amazing in person as she is on screen and Cory was a sweetheart), The Longest Ride, The Crazy Ones and other famous movies and TV shows. I was even featured in the pilot for Monday Mornings/Chelsea General starring Ving Rhames (which…

Houston, TX: Beyonce

Houston, TX: Beyonce

For Beyonce’s Formation tour, I flew out to Houston, Texas to see her perform on Sept 24, 2016 because I wanted to see Beyonce perform in her hometown and I had already missed her performance in my own hometown. I visited Parkwood Park where she used to run growing up and was pointed in the direction of her old house where I took a selfie. When I watched her perform I belted out her music. Ah, the magic of Beyonce. I spent rest of the…

Oaxaca: The Heart of Mexico, with Chocolate

Oaxaca: The Heart of Mexico, with Chocolate

Oaxaca is a beautiful part of Mexico and is probably its chocolate capital! Filled with all kinds of ‘mole‘ – green mole, black mole, mole in tacos, mole de pollo, etc. Apart from chocolate-inspired entrees are the Mayordomo chocolate shops where you can walk in and buy chocolate in bulk – mole, frozen chocolate malts, and chocolate blocks. I have been told by a few locals that Oaxaca is considered by many to be the ‘heart of Mexico.’ Stroll through the…

Puerto Vallarta: Sunset Blvd with a Beach in Mexico

Puerto Vallarta: Sunset Blvd with a Beach in Mexico

Puerto Vallarta was amazing. I stayed here for literally a month a half because I just couldn’t leave! The Malecon boardwalk that extends along the ocean shore  has the gorgeous sea to one side and restaurants and shopping on the other. There are artisans and street vendors selling jewelry, food and knick knacks from morning until night. The sunsets are especially beautiful. The vacati0ners rent hotels and swim in the ocean during the day and eat out at restaurants at night while…

Valle de Bravo: Where Eva Longoria Got Married in Mexico

Valle de Bravo: Where Eva Longoria Got Married in Mexico

Valle de Bravo is a cute little pueblo magico and worth checking out. Unfortunately the water in the lake looks polluted and I wish they would clean this up, but the downtown area is pretty cool and there are lots of little shops and restuarants. This town is really a pleasure to stroll through. The main church at the downtown area is Parroquia de San Francisco de Asis and the accompanying Plaza Independencia and zocalo. It’s a lovely plaza and central downtown church with surrounding…

Queretaro: A Beautiful Downtown Area in Mexico

Queretaro: A Beautiful Downtown Area in Mexico

Queretaro is not one of my favorite places because I sprained my ankle really badly here and my couch surfing host was not so great, but the downtown area is beautiful and worth seeing. Find the Acueducto de Querétaro & Panteón and stroll on over to the Plaza de Fundadores & Templo de la Santa Cruz. The Alameda Hidalgo Park is a nice walk and very relaxing with a zocalo in the center. The Templo de Nuestra Sra del Carmen is beautiful and make sure to find an hour to…

Leon: Where I Almost Became a Doctor in Mexico

Leon: Where I Almost Became a Doctor in Mexico

I had one of the best Couchsurfing experiences of my life in Leon. I shadowed bariatric surgeries in a teaching hospital almost everyday thanks to the father of my amazing host family who was a bariatric surgeon, and I absolutely loved it. On my other days I strolled through downtown Leon which has some beautiful architecture. Find the exquisite Templo Exporatorio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus and just spend some time in this incredible church. Cruise on over to the Museo de Arte e…

Guanajuato: Color, Charm & Culture in Mexico

Guanajuato: Color, Charm & Culture in Mexico

I cannot say enough good things about Guanajuato. Like San Miguel Allende, its cobble-stone streets, colorful buildings, beautiful architecture, rich history, affordability and safety make it another perfect place to vacation and/or retire. Stroll through the streets past the coffee shops, restaurants, health food stores, street vendors and artists, colorful churches and friendly people and experience the charm and serenity of Guanajuato. Stroll through the Plaza de la Paz from Teatro Juarez to the Parroquia de Basilica de Nuestra Sra de Guadalupe. Hike to…
