Bare Necessities Grand Opening & Review

I have to admit to not being particularly frequent with facials. My skin care regime is pretty meticulous, and I take the time when I can to spend a little more time on a deeper cleanse once or twice a week, but generally I struggle for time and to put myself before work when it comes to heading to a salon for something a little more targeted.  However when Bare Necessities invited me to try the Firm, Plump, Lift! Treatment at their new Tanglewood location, I couldn’t wait!

The Tanglewood is a lovely salon close to The Galleria. Their goal is to make the experience as comfortable as possible, and they certainly did that! After I arrived, my appointment began with a consultation and skin analysis in order for my therapist to help me to find exactly where my skin is currently at, what it’s lacking in and what products and treatments will help me to improve it. We had a chat about my current regime and lifestyle, and any concerns I had skin care wise. I was honest and told her I use a soap/water and the occasional exfoliation.

I had my last facial before Ava was born, so the Firm, Plump, Lift! intrigued me because its meant to detoxify and hydrate for the appearance of fewer fine lines and wrinkles by feeding your skin phytonutrients and antioxidants. I’ve included a full list from the facial service I received:

  • Pear & Poppysead Microderm Polisher: relieves congested skin and helps increase microcirculation
  • Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel: plumps and rejuvenates as well as minimizes fine lines
  • Arctic Berry Peel: deeply exfoliates and decongest pores
  • Blueberry Detox Firming Peel: minimizes pores and detoxifies skin
  • Citrus & Kale Masque: high in antioxidants, increases collagen production

There was slight redness when I left, but was gone within 30 minutes. My skin feels so refreshed and I will defiantly be back!

Best of the #NSALE

The sale we wait for ALL year is finally here… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I will be updating this post through out the sale, so head back here! Also, a few things I want to remind y’all:

  • Everything goes FAST! So if you see something you like, get it!
  • Nordstrom offers free shipping, which is AMAZING. So if you really like something, buy it, and then take the time to scroll through the rest of the items because you can always post another order an hour later (and then 2 days later… a week later…) and you will always get free shipping!
  • They also offer free returns, no questions asked. So if you get something in and you aren’t crazy about it, you can return it easy-as-pie! So you can shop guilt free!
  • You can order online and choose the “in-store pick up” option if you don’t want to wait for the shipping. I do this all the time and it’s amazing!

Ok, so I’m going to break it up into categories, so I hope this helps and happy shopping!







Cabo Travel Guide

Hi babes and Happy Tuesday!! Cabo has been on my bucket list for years! We headed to Cabo as an early anniversary celebration and also for a family trip. Last year I was 9 months pregnant, so traveling anywhere was out of the question. We had never been to Cabo, but so many of my friends had and they say they absolutely love it! Once we got there we completely understood what all the hype was about. Sean and I have been to Cancun a bunch of times because it’s so close to Houston, but honestly after visiting Cabo, this will definitely not be our last trip.

Where To Stay:

We stayed at the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and loved every minute of it! We were greeted with a hand towel and margarita, which is my kind of service!

Not only is it super family friendly from its large kid area [and kids only pool], but it also had nightly entertainment and the nicest employees that make the resort so fun. They have baby sitting for ages 4-12, and arcade, and full We ate at most of the restaurants on site, they had a Hibachi , Italian, Mexican,  Steakhouse. The Hibachi was our personal favorite and Ava LOVED watching the gentleman “play” with the food.

For the adults, they have 3 pools, a large one in the center of the resort, another that is right on the water, and a third adults only pool. We never made it to the adults only, but both the one on the beach and the adults only had a swim up bar. We did sneak away for a spa date at the Zen Spa and had an hour long couples massage. The Spa also has steam baths, saunas, and a lounge pool if you want to make a day at the spa.

Another great perk about this resort is it is less than 20 minutes from the airport!

We also ventured out for one excursion. My hubby surprised us with a 5 hour yacht trip that went up and down the coast, to Lover’s Beach, and Arch of Los Cabos. Funny thing, Lover’s Beach is right on the other side of Divorce Beach. Let’s just say one  During our trip, we saw dolphins, flying fish, and even a shark!

Here’s a few things I packed:
