Girl’s Road Trip to Philly for Glow Wellness Tour


Women who support women are more successful. There is actual research that shows women in particular benefit from collaboration. Study after study shows women who support women are more successful in business and in life.

So, when Candy Calderón invited me to speak at this year’s Glow Wellness Tour, I felt immense gratitude as I know how it is for us to take to for self and to commune with other like-minded women. I also know how much I needed a road trip with some of the women in my community.

Candy Calderón created the Glow Wellness Tour after attending wellness events over the years that she couldn’t connect to culturally. As a Latina, certain herbs, spices, and spiritual elements are a necessary part of her holistic wellbeing. Previously hosted in NYC, this second run served as a way to continue to address this lack of diversity.

An array of powerful and multicultural women on diverse panels shared their stories and experiences from coping with mental health, body positivity to the very difficult conversation of sexual assault and domestic violence.

From the pain however, everyone celebrated each other’s strength by ending the day with a zumba fiesta, as only an empowered group of women would.

My Philly visit was made especially sweet by Buick, who offered me its Regal TourX to take on the road. I knew that not only would we be riding in style, but that everything we needed would fit perfectly. Most importantly, we’d be safe and comfortable.

Regal TourX is a crossover in the truest sense of the word, with the drive dynamics of a car and the versatility of an SUV.

The TourX rides higher than its Sportback counterpart, enabling greater capability. Its rugged exterior appearance, standard roof rails, interior amenities, standard intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) with active twin-clutch and functional cargo area epitomize upscale utility, capability and convenience backed by the quality and safety expected from Buick.

With the new Regal TourX and Sportback, Buick now offers two new products that expand the expectations and opportunity for individuality in the premium midsize segment. One is a sports sedan with sleek, coupe-like design with five-door versatility; the other, a vehicle with the drive dynamics of a car but with all the usefulness of an SUV.

Some of my favorite highlights from the Buick Regal TourX :

  • It has more overall cargo space than the Volvo V60 Cross Country, the Audi A4 Allroad, BMW 3-series Sport Wagon and the Subaru Outback, with up to 73.5 cubic feet behind the front seats. Look at that trunk! Priceless packing when you’re headed to an event!
  • Standard intelligent AWD with active twin-clutch provides improved vehicle control and efficiency in any condition. The purpose-built exterior’s ride height increased over the Regal Sportback and it has durable fascia.
  • The hands-free power lift-gate.
