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.

Lash Extensions with The Lash Lounge in Houston

Lash extensions! This is something that had been on my mind for quite some time. I’m not really sure what kept me from doing it. But I’ll admit that I was a bit on the fence about it. After getting the opportunity to get my lash extension with The Lash lounge in Memorial Green, all I could think was, “why did it took me so long to do this?”

From the moment I walked in, my experience was great! The staff was welcoming, the lobby was clean and inviting. They walked me through the process they answer my questions and even offered some information upfront.

The Process

The last tech that would take care of me walked over and introduced herself. She then walked me over to the station where I would be sit through the extension process. She asked me a few questions to better understand what were my expectations for this experience. While, I had the option to take a nap, Rola  was so great that we chatted the entire time instead.

The entire process took three hours, and this was just because it was my first time. I was advised that fill-ins would need to be done every 2 to 3 weeks, and on those visits I would only spend about an hour at the salon. I was sent home with brushes for my lashes, care instructions and a lash sealer that I bought as it would help maintain my lashes as intact as possible – and let me tell you that I swear by it.

Before & After

I love the volume and length my lashes got from doing the lash extension. While I naturally have lots of lashes, I lack length. Getting the extensions, definitely made a big difference.

It has already been two weeks and my lashes still look great. I will be due for a fill-ins soon and will make sure to share the experience with you on Instagram. 😉

If you’re a Houston Babe and you’re thinking about getting lash extension or any other lash service, make sure to visit The Lash Lounge – you will not be disappointed.
