If there's ever been an app that has improved my lifestyle, this is it.
While I love my eye doctor and have been seeing her for years, I absolutely hate the drive. Los Angeles to Orange County can take over an hour with traffic, each way, which means I'm spending half my day just going to see my Ophthalmologist.

For someone who is always on the go and hates checking in her luggage, I am always searching for travel friendly shoes that are not only comfortable, but also versatilely stylish. Typically sneakers are my go-to, but when it comes to island adventures, boat rides, and beach bound getaways, I reach for my Sperry's.Read More
