Hello Friends, Last weekend my father and I spent our Saturday exploring San Francisco. We started off with a fantastic breakfast at a little place called Wise Sons, sadly I didn’t snap a picture of it, because I was just … Continue reading

Thanksgiving in Mexico: Part 1
Sometime early last year my friend Kim asked if I wanted to spend my November break with her mom and her family in Mexico. I love relaxing at the beach in the sun, so it was very easy for me to say yes. Fast forward to November and I am on a flight bound for Cancun. They picked me up from the airport and off we went to our condos. They had gotten two back to back and it was such a beautiful location with our own rooftop pools.
Kim’s extended family was there, along with her boyfriend Aaron. Our weather was often cloudy in the morning, and would warm up by lunchtime. The sun would stay out until late into the afternoon.
Our view was amazing. Up top it was crisp and clear and we could see for a long way. More to come tomorrow!
About three years ago I fell in love with a Panama hat at J.Crew. I wouldn’t normally have liked or even bought something like that, but I don’t know, something about that hat spoke to me!
And surprisingly enough, I wear it decently often, to the beach with friends, on holiday with my family, to the park on a sunny day. Then two years ago when my dad and I visited L.A. I was looking for a big sun hat for long days at the beach. We found one at Manhattan beach as we were walking along that I liked, really simple with a black ribbon and bow.
Now, I can’t see to walk into a store without finding another hat I like! I like that they hide my sometimes messy wind-blown hair, they keep my nose from getting sunburnt, and they seem to take my outfits a step cooler.
I’ve been looking to add another sun hat, and there are so many great options out now. I might just have to pick one up.
I want all of them! Are you a hat person? What do you do to keep your face from getting too much sun?
Sun, Sand and the Surf
I really like the motto of working hard so that you can play hard. And for me, playing hard always means relaxing somewhere warm on a sunny beach. My 2015 resolution was to travel more, and that means regularly putting some money aside for a later date to have fun somewhere new!
Often I’m pretty busy, between working a full time teaching job, babysitting around 25 hours a week. Sometimes I’ll sneak in time for a workout, or to grab dinner with either friends or family. When at home, I’m usually washing up some dishes, trying to get a load of laundry done, finishing lessonplans/powerpoints for work and sleeping! I do tend to relax in the form of watching a show for an hour or so in the later evenings.
I usually need to block out time for a trip before I’m able to put away my endless to-do lists, and pull out a fun book! On Monday, my girlfriend and I will be flying to Maui for 5 days, and I couldn’t be more excited to unplug, and enjoy lots of down time
I’ve been on the hunt for a new bathing suit, and even though its a bit early in the season to be shopping for summer, there are tons of choices online that I’ve been eying.
So many have cute back details! I’ve been mostly leaning towards one pieces because I think they will be more comfortable under my swim shirt when I’m snorkeling.

There are so many cute choices out there! Any places that you love to score a new bathing suit? Do you prefer a one piece or a bikini?
Spruce Point Inn
Due to a mix-up with dates and hotels, we ended up driving a bit north after Kennebunkport, and stayed the night at a gorgeous resort call Spruce Point Inn. I have never had any inclinations or thoughts of planning a … Continue reading
Seafood Lunch and a Beach Walk
A few weeks ago, my parents and I drove down along the coast to meet up with my cousin and his wife for lunch. They had taken the week off to celebrate my cousins birthday in Monterrey. We ate at … Continue reading
