Today’s post is a little different but I’m excited to share a piece of non-glam, real life with you guys! I have serious anxiety when it comes to taking care of my car. I always joke with my dad that we skipped these lessons when I was growing up (along with taxes, setting a budget…ya know, regular #adulting). Although I have one of those caution lights that come on, I never EVER know what needs to be fixed or checked. The day I found out I had to get regular oil changes I almost had a meltdown – who knew!?

I like to think I take pretty good care of my car (emphasis on the pretty). I use my car for everything form driving to and from the office, heading out to meet #FashionablyBae for date night, grabbing coffee with the girls, trekking out to a blogger event and sometimes the occasional road trip. I use it a lot and actually shy away from the MARTA (I do love some uber though). I try to make a little checklist of when things need to get done – when my tires need rotating, reminders to get gas every week so I don’t run out (it’s happened more than 3 times), getting a good wash, etc. The things that brings me the most grief – seriously, it’s oi changes. I hate running out during my lunch and waisting over an hour for a 10 minute process. I HATE shelving out almost $50. I hate the dirty shoe prints. It’s just not my favorite thing at. all.

I’m pretty pumped to share that for all of my girls out there that can relate, Quaker State™ Oil is making it super easy, hassle free and HELPFUL for us to do our very own DIY style Oil Change. You read that right. DIY isn’t just for turning your dresser from ugly brown to a rustic white.

I picked up a bottle of the Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ Motor Oil (it was under $10!!) and made a trip to my parents’ house so we could walk through the DIY process together. Y’all, it was SO. EASY. I couldn’t believe it. The best part? I saved about $40, the long wait during my lunch break and I kind of feel like a total boss.

So ladies, run don’t walk and pick up some of this liquid gold because your car care will never be the same!
