Staying Healthy While Traveling

staying healthy while traveling

The opinions in this article are my own. I do not work for, or with, any brand mentioned in this article, nor do I have any official relationship with them. I have a relationship with GigaSavvy, for whom I create original editorial content. There is a popular misconception floating around that once you begin your vacation or travels it becomes impossible to stay healthy and eat well. It turns out that the opposite is true and if you can eat healthy and stay fit at home you will have no problem following the same lifestyle when you’re traveling. … [Read more...]

Family Friendly Fun in Las Vegas

Family friendly fun in Las Vegas When we think about Las Vegas, usually we conjure up images of adult-only activity, from drinking in bars to gambling away our hard-earned cash or running away to get married.

I have been so busy this summer.  I am sure I have mentioned that when we moved five years ago that we moved almost an hour from all of our friends and family.  So all summer I have been driving back and forth from my mom's house or my grandmother's house.  This week I have gotten gas three times at $65 each time.  In ONE week.  I have been picking up teenagers and driving my mom to her appointments and doing lots of coupon shopping.  I am tired.  I am glad that I have a great park that is sort of nearby so that we can decompress and get rid of the … [Read more...]

Escaping the Ordinary in Puerto Rico

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It is so cold and rainy at my house that I think I may get in the car and just leave.  I think if I had the choice right now I would want somewhere warm with lots of things to do.  I would go somewhere like Puerto Rico where you can choose so many different fun activities to do. Puerto Rico has 270 miles of coastline and featured in the Top 10 beaches from Travel Channel -- including Flamenco Beach in Culebra, … [Read more...]
