Mama’s Monterey Shopping List 2018

August is my favorite month to abandon my children. Sorry, but it’s true. I do a lot around here, so I think it’s perfectly cool if my husband is in charge while I head to the Bay Area to sip champagne on a seaside golf course to look at priceless cars. Good luck with that back-to-school stuff, honey. Mama’s got a date in Monterey! But...

Mama’s Playlist: Hey Nissan, Can I Kick It?

This week, I’m heading to San Diego to drive the new Nissan Kicks.

Mama’s Foolproof Embarrass Your Kids Playlist

One of the weirdest things that’s ever happened to me as a mother was when a random kid got in my car and immediately told me to change the music.  After pausing to collect myself (cuz I’m a grownup), I calmly told this child that if she wished to be the dj she should get her own damn car and drive herself. Which, by all...

The Badass Women Of Automotive: Jean Jennings

When I decided to start recognizing the badass women in the automotive industry, there was no question that I had to start with Jean Jennings. That’s not only because she shares a name with a porn star.
