"Sun"sational Saturday in the Dominican Republic


Come with me to "Sun"sational Punta Cana
in the Dominican Republic!

A few years ago I was lucky enough to take a trip to Punta Cana, DR.
Ever since then, I have taken a daily vacation in my mind back to that beautiful resort.
So get a cold drink, sit back, relax and take a trip to a place where you can see heaven on earth!
From the moment you step off  the airplane and walk into the thatched roof airport,
you will know that you are in paradise!

They make going through Customs a walk in the park,
and they will have you on your way before you know it.
Our resort, Majestic Elegance, caters to both families and couples.
Since it was just my husband, myself and another couple, we stayed in the Elegance-Adults Only Section, and it was well worth the extra expense.

They will greet you at the entrance with a cold drink and a cool towel.
When you enter the open lobby you can look straight out and see all the way to the crystal blue ocean.

You will be met by a butler who will quickly check you in and give you a tour of the resort.
The rooms are very spacious and have a jetted tub.
       After you get situated in your room, you will never have to want for anything! 
Cold drinks, your own palapa on the beach, a spot by the winding pool, food is available
24 hours a day . . . . . . .
Your wish is their command and they try very hard to please! So come and put your toes in the water and listen to the sound of the ocean!



After a day of fun in the sun, you can take advantage of the shows, shops, meet new friends in the lobby or dance the night away under the stars in the plaza.

Aren't you ready to hop on a plane to Punta Cana?
Happy Travels!

Winter Wonderland

Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Since it seems like there is snow falling all around my town,
but not in my town, I thought it would
be the perfect time to bring
the snow to me! 
So build a fire, mix up some hot chocolate, snuggle under a warm blanket
and come take a walk in a

Flip Flop & Fancy Free

Flip Flops+Sandals=I'm in LOVE!
How can anyone be in a bad mood
when they have flip flops on their feet!
The Red Flip Flops - ACEO print of oil pastel painting
If  you are like me, you would be happy if you could wear
flip flops all day everyday!
I discovered these stylish and trendy Chula Flip Flops while on vacation last year!
They are so comfortable and not restrictive on your feet so you can wear them for just about any outing.
You can mix different strings with different bases to match anything! 
My favorite mix up is the dark base paired with
brown strings and a brown/dark blue glass bead.
They are so easy to wear and you can
wrap the strings however your mood strikes you!

Even though some Christmas' are merrier than others,
I always love decorating my Christmas tree and
remembering the special meaning of my special ornaments from
both friends and family.
