Five Things To-Do in Galveston this Summer

I’ve talked about Galveston in the past and it’s because it is the closest beach town to Houston. I’ll admin that while the water is not clear blue like that of other beach towns, I still love Galveston. Even more I love the atmosphere, people, food and entertainment options. The people of Galveston are so laid back and easy going, exactly what you’d expect from residents of a beach town. The food is pretty darn good and I have a few spots that have become favorites, read about them here. As far as entertainment, there are plenty of options for adults and children alike. We like to keep it simple and the girls don’t mind, so we have done all of the below and had a blast.

1. Take the Bolivar Ferry –

This is favorite because on all occasions we have been able to spot dolphins. This is exiting for the girls because it’s not an animal that you see often. It is also really neat to travel with the seagulls who follow along in hopes of being fed. Though you’re not supposed to, people often sneak in a treat for them.

2. Eat at Pier 21 –

Being near the sea, means better seafood options. There are some all over Galveston but I have to say that some of the restaurants along Pier 21 have great options, in particular Fisherman’s Wharf. Don’t be fooled, their extensive menu has plenty of non-seafood items too.

3. Sit along the seawall –

Whether you sit along the benches or set up on the sand, it is nice to hang out by the seawall. Plus, it is also within walking distance of many popular sports in Galveston.

4. Visit Pleasure Pier –

Built on the grounds of a hotel that was swallowed by a hurricane, the pier is now one of Galveston’s top destinations. There’s a handful of fair-like games and rides, for grown ups and kids. It’s the perfect place for the entire family to have fun and create memories.

5. Visit Jamaica Beach –

This is one of my favorite beaches because you can drive on. And with our little ones, it is much more comfortable to park your car, pop the trunk open and set up right in front of it. You don’t have to worry about parking meters or traffic either. And you can stay and watch the sunset before heading back to your hotel or home in our case.

If you’re ever in Houston, make sure to stop by Galveston. It’s worth a visit! If you have ever visited, let me know what you did and what was your favorite part. I love talking about Galveston. 🙂

A Little Self-Care with Essential Body Bar

A Little Self-Care with Essential Body Bar

I must admit that I am the worse at self-care. And though self-care goes beyond the physical, I’d say that’s a good place to start. So, I visited Essential Body Bar to do a little self-care this month. I used my birthday as the perfect excuse to get away and try their body wrap and v-steam. Which, I will tell you more about…. But first, let me tell you a bit about the place.

When I walked in, I almost instantly felt relaxed. It smelled amazing and the ambiance was totally conducive to relaxation. I did walked around a bit and took a look at some of the products available for purchase. And there’s a bit of everything, from candles to hand creams – all handmade with ingredients that are good for you. The candles for instance, you can use them as a body butter. Yes, the wax is actually body butter! “They are using their medical background with the highest quality of client service to help heal your body naturally, while surrounding you with an elevated spa experience.”

What I thought was really neat about Essential Body Bar is its location. It is like going over to your girlfriends house for a spa day. Instead of your usual commercial store-front, where people constantly walk by and peep in, this location is more private. 

Memberships Available, starting at $69/month. – Use thirtyminusone for 10% off all services.

Infrared Body Wrap

The infrared body wrap is $99 and during the procedure, your skin is wrapped in a natural solution that detoxifies your body. The wrap also aids with blood pressure, insomnia, muscles aches/pains, cellulite, weight loss, boosting energy and reducing stress. 

Seaweed is one of the main ingredients and it helps with toning. It also helps increase your metabolism, as you can burn 600-2000 calories in one session. It may take up to three times to see results, as long as your maintain a healthy lifestyle.

V-Steam

V-Steam takes about 25 minutes and it’s recommended depending on what benefits you’re looking to get out of it. If it’s your cycles that are a concern, it can be done a week before the cycle. If fibroids are a concern, it’s recommended to do it a few times a month. 

While, I’m only sharing two services here, I have to tell you that they have an array of services to choose from. Letrice is very knowledgable and can walk you over any of the services available, as well as benefits. Make sure to give them a call and visit their site to schedule an appointment; don’t forget to take your girlfriends. 😉 And use code thirtyminusone, to get 10% off all services.

Beer Flights and Fútbol, Six Beers to have while Watching the Soccer Tournaments

Beer Flights and Fútbol, Six Beers to have while Watching the Soccer Tournaments
This post was done in collaboration with Cost Plus World Market and #WeAllGrow Latina Network. All opinions are my own.

A Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites? Yes, please! In our home soccer is the ONE sport that we watch as a family; whether we are rooting for the same team or different teams. Our love for the sport is not only rooted in our heritage but also in our personal experiences. I played soccer in high school and so did my two sisters; and now my little ones are planning to play soccer, as they get older too.

Because this summer is the Summer of Soccer, we are getting ready to host a series of viewing parties. Especially, as we see Panama take part in what will be their first game ever in the history of the tournament – they had never participated before, so it’s a big deal in my home – therefore a celebration is mandatory!

To celebrate, I thought it would be perfect to host our Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites! After all, beer and fútbol just seem to go hand-in-hand. So to get ready, I visited the Katy Cost Plus World Market – find yours here. They have food and wine from over 50 countries and because I needed to get my hands on beers from around the world, it only made sense to shop there. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop for entertaining, decorating and food and drink needs at any budget. I was happy to have found exactly what I was looking for, at amazingly affordable prices.

Can A Vacation Make You A Better Person?

Can A Vacation Make You A Better Person?

Can a vacation make you a better person? Well, of course, that depends on how you focus on the vacation. A ‘vacation’ is simply a term used to attribute traveling in a convenient format with time limitations. However, the aspect of travel is not something that can be adequately described in a brochure, or even the best sales pitch of your travel representative. The virtues and benefits you take away from traveling are yours to experience, and sometimes, yes, they can culminate in a better you. Here’s how…

Opening Minds

Travel will broaden your mind. This is important to think about. Often we can get into a routine of going to work, coming home, working out, watching television or Netflix and sleeping. Rinse and repeat all year, until we gain a two-week vacation to lay on a beach and maybe read a novel. We’re not suggesting that your schedule is bad it’s just that your mind could be fed in such a superior way. Because travel can open your mind to new ways of thinking, new people, new events, new things to experience. There could be a whole hidden side of you that you have yet to experience, just waiting to get out. You could be the best salsa dancer in the world. You’ll never know unless you try.

Force To Communicate

When out of your comfort zone in this way, you are forced to communicate with people around you whom you might not have otherwise met. Many people find that the language barrier can be a problem, but we’d suggest it’s simply a fun challenge. To do this will help you find similarities and wonder in the people around the world you otherwise would not interface with. You’ll find humor, goodwill and openness in most people you meet. Then you’ll realize that no matter how many sensational tabloid news articles you read, that the world is much more harmonious than you might think.

There is nothing quite like a family adventure. Each adventure is the chance to build memories together, to see each other laugh and smile and share in the moments that will live long in each of your memories. Family adventures are those unique experiences that manage to bring you closer together no matter how far they take you away from home. They are the mementos that will grace your home’s walls forever, spark conversations and put a grin on your face during tough times.

Oh, yeah, there really is nothing quite like a family adventure, which is why we’ve pulled together a list of adventures that you and your family should try and plan because they will build memories like no other.
