This past week, I was invited down to Aventura Cove Palace, an all-inclusive resort in the Riviera Maya. It had been years since I had been to Mexico. In fact, if you don't count a quick over the border trip to Tijuana, my last trip to Mexico was to Cancun when I was in high school. So I really didn't know what to expect. Obviously what one … [Read more...]

About two years back, I tried on an orange paisley skirt at J Crew. I loved it. I stood in the dressing room and debating getting it - it was over $100 and I remember thinking, will I really wear this enough to warrant the purchase? I didn't get it. I put it back on the rack and I left. I totally regretted it on the drive home and decided I … [Read more...]

So I got home from our Mexico trip and had this awesome box from Pringles on my doorstep. Inside was a can of Pringles and this neat speaker that I can use with my iPhone. What's cool about it? Well we promptly ate all the Pringles so we could use the speaker - which goes on the top of the Pringles can! The can helps to create the base for the … [Read more...]

Are your kids as into the online game Minecraft as much as mine is? If so, check this out - they now have Minecraft toys! We ordered the Minecraft Lego set (there's only one) from Amazon a few weeks ago for $34.99. (Do not pay more! The price seems to go up and down and that's the retail price from Lego so wait if it's not showing that … [Read more...]

As I type this, I'm finishing up a 6-day trip to Mexico. For the first few days here, I couldn't find the shampoo & conditioner that I had packed. (It was tucked away in the suitcase.) I ended up using the hotel shampoo and conditioner. That, on top of the extra exposure to my hair has totally ruined my hair for the last few days. It's normally … [Read more...]

Hey guys, less than 24 hours in Mexico and its already been a whirlwind. I wanted to post just a few photos of what we've been up to so far. We're saying here at the Aventura Cove Resort which is now owned by Hard Rock Hotel and will soon been known as the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. Loving what we've seen so far and there's more to come but … [Read more...]

Not really one to rave about bras, I gotta say I'm over the moon about my new bras from Barely There. I'm not the type to care about any prissy or pretty looking bras, comfort has always been #1 for me with my bras & undies so maybe that's why I'm so in love with my new stuff from Barely There - everything is amazingly comfortable! We're talking … [Read more...]

So normally I wouldn't be so excited about a drink, but I really am about this one!  For one thing, I don't drink soda and I try and not drink anything that has calories in it most days.  (Other than morning coffee with creamer) But I do love tea and this new product from Lipton Tea & Honey has only 5 calories per serving -- it's sweetened … [Read more...]
