Last week my husband and I went to Costa Rica for our very first vacation out of the country! We had never gone on a honeymoon when we got married so we decided that this was going to be our honeymoon vacation…almost 3 years later but better late then never right? Costa Rica is absolutely gorgeous, I completely fell in love with the place and cannot wait times go back! The weather was great as well, it was humid but not so bad and my favorite part was believe it or not the storms that we got almost every single day with thunder, lightning and rain…lots and lots of rain! I felt so relaxed and in peace when the storm started! We even got a storm when we were on a boat and it was amazing! It was a first experience for my husband and I and we both loved it! We then went snorkeling well my husband did, I just swam in the ocean, for some reason the snorkeling gear just gives me anxiety the second I even try to put it on, but I have done snorkeling before in Catalina Island. After the snorkeling we got to see one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen and the most magical rainbow on the other side of the boat! We did also go on a boat to see crocodiles which we saw a few of, I was so terrified that one was somehow going to get on the boat 😂
We stayed at Riu Guanacaste Hotel which is all inclusive, the only thing was that they didn’t have room service which I find so strange! I wish they had it, but now i know to check for next time when we book a hotel! The food there was ok, it wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst either! It’s mainly buffet style and some of the food items weren’t as warm which kinda sucked and after a while I kinda just got tired of the whole buffet thing and couldn’t wait to get home to Los Angeles to have different types of food!
Overall, we had such a great time and cannot wait to go back!
Two weekends ago, I finally was able to do something that I have been wanting to do for a very long time… Get the keratin hair treatment! My hair is crazy after I shower; it’s fine for an hour or two if I leave it as is but then get super puffy, frizzy and uncontrollable! I have to straighten it on a daily basis and I have damaged my hair from it so much.
I found a Groupon for the keratin for only $89 here in LA and I looked up the yelp reviews on the salon and made an appointment.
I ended up getting my hair colored, cut and the treatment done all within less than 3 hours! I was able to finally wash my hair last night and oh my goodness… I’m in love! My hair is straight(90% still has a little bit of wavy at the back hair but I’m totally OK with it) soft and so not frizzy anymore! I love that I didn’t have to use the flat iron or a blow dryer to straighten my hair! I wish I had taken a before and after picture!
If you are debating whether or not to get it done, I highly recommend doing it… It’s like changing!!!
I don’t think I have ever mentioned on here that my husband and I are trying to get into photography; so on weekends now, we tend to go somewhere and work on our skills at taking pictures and just getting more familiar with our cameras. For now we are just doing photos of nature/places/etc; we will eventually love to start taking photos of people but for now this is what we are doing. This past weekend we decided to go to a place that we love… Hearst Castle! We first went there on our 3rd year anniversary and fell in love, and decided to go back and do our engagement photos there. It is about a 3.5 hour drive from where we live so we only went for the day. We have already done most of the tours so we knew we just wanted to get up there to take pictures so we bought a tour which you have to buy in order to enter the castle, and as soon as we were in, we ditched our group haha. I want to show you a few pictures that we took; of course I will post more on our Instagram account if you would like to follow us on there for future pictures.
Have you ever been to Hearst Castle? What was your experience like?
I actually haven’t started reading this book yet, but I just bought it a few days ago and I’m so excited to start reading it. I have been a Gilmore Girl fan for so many years now and I to this day still watch the show on Netflix! I absolutely adore Lauren Graham and her character Lorelai Gilmore…shes so funny, sweet caring and I love the relationship she has with her daughter! I so wish my mom and I had that type of relationship…sadly we don’t!
The most important person in my life is my husband! I honestly love and adore him and I wouldn’t know what to do with out him!
My husband and I have been married for 2.5 years, but have been together for almost 6 years now! He’s my best friend, my partner, my everything! He is the one person who knows me better than anyone else in this world, he is the one person who I can tell everything and anything too and who I can be myself fully with! I know I drive him nuts sometimes and vise versa but that’s just part of life. No relationship/marriage is perfect… If it is then there is something majorly wrong!!
