Hey everyone! Most of you are aware that I recently went on a vacation for a week to Panama & Costa Rica.

The countries we visited were…

Travel Peru: Rainbow Mountain Trek

Hola amigos and welcome to the last post in my Travel Peru series! Rainbow Mountain was the last place we went in Peru before Mike was hospitalized and we decided to end our trip early (completely unrelated to the trek or anything about Peru, that’s all I’ll say on the matter).

Travel Peru: Lima & Huacachina

Many of you already know this, but for those who are new to my blog my husband and I just returned from Peru. We booked an 18 – 30 group tour because I knew I’d be lost in Peru with my limited Spanish speaking ability.

What’s In My Bag ~ Travel Skincare & Hair Routine

As part of my travel series I wanted to include my travel skincare and Hair routine.
