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

This week, I’m heading to San Diego to drive the new Nissan Kicks. This is exciting because a) I get the hell out of my house and leave my husband with the end of school year nonsense, b) the Kicks is an adorable, affordable crossover so it should be fun and c) it’s called Kicks! If you’re not in love with this name the way...

Test Drive: Nissan’s Tasty & Green LEAF 2018

When I was 6 years old, I got a pair of scissors in my Christmas stocking and promptly proceeded to cut my own bangs. Needless to say, I wore a lot of hats that winter. The point is, we can all grow out of an awkward phase and hope the world forgets about the Christmas incident of ’78. This the future that the new and...

First Date: Nissan TITAN Midnight Edition

It was just one night. One magical night. The time: the eve of the eclipse 2017. The place: a hot, humid, sticky field in Brentwood, TN. He was tall, dark & handsome. I was jet legged, sweaty and quite possibly a little buzzed from too much whiskey.  The attraction was instant &  impossible to deny—if it wasn’t for the 30 eyewitnesses we could’ve just driven...

Tuesday Test Drive: Nissan GT-R NISMO

Listen people, there are days where it all sucks.  There are days when I sit in my little office, trying to get my head out of my ass long enough to write something interesting. There are days when the cat takes a crap on my bed and the kids have lice.  But then there are days when I drive the GT-R NISMO. Now, if you’re...
