Barcelo Maya Riviera

We loved our stay at the Barcelo Maya Riviera! This hotel is fairly new and clients were raving about it, so I decided it was finally time for us to go. The hotel is about an hour south of the Cancun airport, between Playa and Tulum. It’s close to the eco parks if you want […]

Our stay at the beautiful El Dorado Maroma {travel}

This post is long overdue. We stayed at the amazing El Dorado Maroma in August 2019. It has been a whirlwind year and let’s just say it’s time to catch up! We love the Karisma brand, we have stayed at several of their hotels. First up we got to fly on the Dreamliner that American […]

Why use a Travel Agent

It’s a common question we get asked. “Why should I book with you” or “why should I use a travel agent”? Mostly, I think people ask that because they assume they can just do it themselves cheaper. In some instances, that may be true. But more often a good travel agent will save you money […]

A few of my favorite things

I haven’t done a favorite things post in a while. Here are a few of my current favorite things. I’ll link to as many as I can! My favorite things, in no particular order. Target Bag Call me crazy but I love my re-usable Target bags. Well, any re-usable bags. But I have this really […]

Our stay at El Dorado Casitas Royale {travel}

My husband and I have actually stayed at the beautiful El Dorado Casitas twice, it’s probably our favorite hotel in the Riviera Maya! (The Valentin is a close second.) The El Dorado Casitas Royale is an adults only, all inclusive hotel in the Riviera Maya (South of Cancun). If you stay in the Casitas section […]

Our stay at the Valentin Imperial Maya {travel}

My husband and I love the Riviera Maya, (the area south of Cancun). We go any chance we can. There are lots of towns south of Cancun, sometimes referred to as Playa or Playa del Carmen as well. Our most recent trip was to the Valentin Imperial Maya. It’s an all inclusive resort so basically […]

Low-carb Super Bowl snacks

I don’t love football, but I do love watching the Super Bowl and just hanging out with friends and eating yummy food. I read recently online that on a Keto diet you can’t even go to a party or enjoy a social night with your friends because you can’t eat anything. I strongly disagree with […]

Low-carb meatball casserole

Pasta used to be a staple in my diet and I cooked it almost weekly for my family. It was probably the one thing I didn’t think I was willing to go without. Turns out, I was wrong. Ingredients: 2-2.5 pounds of meat (I used sausage and pork this time) 1/4 cup Almond flour 1/4 […]

Breakfast egg muffin recipe

Meal prep is a weekly occurrence in our house. One of the easiest and my favorite is the breakfast egg muffins. It’s so much easier for me to come home from a 5AM workout and have breakfast done. I just have to throw one or two in the microwave. This recipe is low carb and […]

My relationship with food

Hot topic alert. As far back as I can remember, I have loved to eat. Love food. Love the social part of eating out. I even love to cook and bake. I am not necessarily the greatest at it. But I love to cook for people. It’s the love to eat part that has been […]
