See Some Mexico!

Hey friends!

I was blessed this year to be able to go to Mexico (before my passport expires)!

So, I had never stayed at an all inclusive resort. I have been to a few places, but our norm has been to rent a place. Someone usually ends up cooking and doing things not conducive to RELAXING. We took a girl's trip to an all adult, all inclusive resort. Let me tell you! I ate all of the food and I drank all of the drinks! It was such a beautiful and relaxing time! Can you imagine just sitting out by the pool all day and being waited on hand and foot? We did it! And I want to do it again! I will do it again!

I didn't know how bad I needed to unwind until I got the opportunity to do so! Remember to take care of yourselves friends!

We stayed at Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort. The only downside to this trip was that we could not swim (and I use that term loosely) at the beach due to erosion. There was a lifeguard on duty to make sure no one went out too far, but really the waves at the shore would sweep you away if you even tried to.

The food wasn't too bad. It wasn't the best I'd ever had, but I tried some dishes that normally would not appeal to me. I can still taste the shrimp broth. With it being all inclusive, why not try all the things?

Who goes somewhere tropical and can't drink tropical drinks? Me! that's who! I'm allergic to coconut so I had to be really careful. They were using the real deal coconut milk and not that imitation stuff. Nonetheless, the bartenders were more than happy to make something up for me!

We ventured out and did a dinner cruise. I don't have any information about the company we used because our driver (who we met because our transportation from the airport wasn't confirmed and we had to find another route) booked it for us. It was beautiful! Seeing the sun set on the beautiful Pacific Ocean gave my spirit a calm like I have never experienced before. I definitely now understand how people fall in love with the West Coast.

We let fish eat the dead skin off of our feet!

Traveling opens you up to trying new things. It exposes you to so many different cultures and shows that there isn't just one way to live. I love exploring new places and faces.

What's your favorite place to travel? I'm still discovering. Generally, anywhere that I can smell some salt water is good for me!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
