Hello friends! Happy October! Where has this year gone? I can’t believe we are already out picking pumpkins and decorating for spooky season.

My New Favorite Texas Oasis-Lively Beach

20200924_172622

Hello friends! I cannot believe we have officially welcomed fall. Can you? This year has just flown by, and I’m grateful that as a family we were able to spend a little time at the beach to help close summer out. If you follow my blog, than you know that every summer we head south of San Antonio to the Corpus Christi and North Padre Island, Texas area. This year was extra special since our little family has grown from three to four! Although we were excited for a little weekend getaway, it was also important for us to social distance, and feel as safe as possible, so I was beyond excited to learn about these new resort style condominiums on Mustang Island called Lively Beach.

cari 9cari 10

Hi friends! Over the past month I have had an oral health breakthrough! Having a healthy pretty smile has always been very important to me. Over the years, I’ve been that person who truly enjoys a good professional teeth cleaning because I love that extra fresh feeling you get after leaving the dentist. I also teeth whiten frequently, and recently started using the professional at home whitening treatment by Smile Brilliant, which has brought me great results. I’m always looking to up my smile game though, so as you can imagine I was so excited when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to review the cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush.

Best kept secret in South of France

ville 1

I adore the South of France. So much to see and do..an endless possibility of natural beauty, history, beaches, glam. So how do you decide what to see and do on a visit to the French Riviera? Well, that of course is subjective to your own wants and needs, however after having the chance to explore the area for over a week this past May with my husband and son, I can highly recommend a visit to the town of Villefranche sur Mer. I definitely did my research of best places to see and things to do in the area, so as you can imagine, I was overjoyed to have included this small beachside town on our schedule. It was sooooooo much more than I ever expected, and I was so touched by this small gem of a place that I was even inspired to write a whole blog post dedicated to sharing it with you. So what makes this place so special, and a must see place in the Riviera? As I break down my two visits here on my trip I think you will understand! At least I hope so 😉
