Riding in Style with the Scion FRS

First, things first…I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Latina Lifestyle Bloggers and Toyota for providing me with this incredible opportunity. They both took a chance on an underdog! – I was sponsored to drive a Scion FRS to the #LLBlog13 Conference and for a few days after.  say whaaaaaaaat?!
 
honored, thrilled and humbled by this experience…because this type of thing doesn’t happen everyday, at least not to me.
 
Here are photos of some of my adventures with this hot sports car…a peek at what my life is like sometimes.
you may have seen some already if you follow me on instagram. 😉

When I first picked up the car! eeek!  
What moves you? 
loved that this was the frame surrounding the license plate. 
How inspirational, right?
 
 
 
 Sample Sales! yes…because I’m always on the hunt for a deal.
a beauty event for Kaplan MD 
So much fun with the sport function…Wow! A sportscar gal, me? no…never….
yeah, right! I’m a changed woman. 
This car was so fun to drive. I mean I was still safe…but sometimes I would zip through Santa Monica Blvd… 
even when I wasn’t speeding, people would try to race me. 
This car just has that kind of effect. 
a quick little stop to say hi to Mr. T-rex in Palm Springs.
roadtrip to Phoenix to see my parents. 
Words cannot express my gratitude.

 

 

 

and back through San Diego…the beach…it calms me. This was a beautiful moment.
pedal to the medal.
 
the seats. so comfortable…and loved the red-stitching detail.
a business meeting in cute Downtown Whittier.
Woodbury Fashion Show.
behind the scenes…a hair and makeup gig I had in Beverly Hills.
 
sexy.
also the stereo was pretty cool…and there’s a bluetooth function where you can hook up your phone to answer calls.
 
trunk space is adequate for my day to day shenanigans. 
It fits my luggage, my makeup kit, camera bag, and shopping bags.
 
 
my hot girlfriend. obsessed is an understatement of how she felt about the FRS. 
she almost cried when I  had to return it. 🙂 so cute.
 
on a romantic drive.
 
People were turning heads left and right when they saw this car.
I’m definitely not used to that in my little four door.
Some of my friends even called the FRS the Batmobile. Haha!
The FRS starts at about $25,255
not bad. ;)find out more here.
 
Thanks for coming along on my adventure. What a ride!
