L.A. Cruising in the Kia Sorento

The L.A. Edition of our Be Chic Tour was a success thanks to Kia! We were able to drive around town and get to our TV segments in the new 2016 Kia Sorento. kia sorento mercedes sanchez

Mercedes arrives in L.A. for the Be Chic Tour 

My cousin Maddie came with me to L.A. and she was doing all the driving while I went over my notes for the television segments where I shared my lifestyle tips.

The car was simply amazing. We loved the sun roof and the UVO System features, which provides in-car connectivity based on the capabilities of your personal device. Maddie was able to connect her cell phone contacts and listen to her favorite songs as she drove.

The first time we went to L.A. together in 2007 we printed out directions from MapQuest- remember that?! Thankfully we didn't have to print out directions or use Google Maps this time around. The Kia Sorento has a built-in navigation system. It allows you to either type in the name of the venue, or an address. kia sorento navigation be chic tour and mercedes sanchez The Rear-Camera Display, Back-Up Warning System, Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure System, and the traffic alerts were super helpful too! The first two nights of our trip we stayed at Marina del Rey Hotel. It's a short ride to Venice Beach, and only a 5-minute ride to In-N-Out Burger in Culver City. be chic tour kia sorento

Mercedes Sanchez in the Kia Sorento. Be Chic Tour. 
On Friday morning we got up early to drive to Telemundo in Universal City. It's right down the block from Universal Studios. We were so tempted to spend the day at the park, but after Telemundo, we had to run to The Line Hotel for my panel at the We All Grow Summit.

As usual, there's little time to stop and eat while on tour. pro  bar be chic tour In between segments and the conference, I snacked on this Pro Bar. It was my first time trying it and it was pretty good. They say it's a "meal in a bar" with protein and fiber. acceso total los angeles mercedes sanchez

I had a great time sharing by beauty tips on Acceso Total in Telemundo 52 with Elva Saray and Chiquibaby. We did two segments. I'll make sure to share the videos soon. We arrived at The Line Hotel just in time for the panel!

Our panel went well and the audience asked lots of questions!

And just like that the L.A. edition of our Be Chic Tour was over! Thanks so much to Kia for allowing us to drive in style in the new 2016 Kia Sorento.

We'll see you again in our next city!
