Freebeat Litbike

Hi! My name is Raina and I’m a 36-year-old mom blogger from San Diego. I am a full-time influencer and stay-at-home mom. Before that, I was a barre instructor and dance teacher. Honestly, I never had to worry about weight loss or dieting because I was always active my whole life and preferred to eat healthy for the most part. After my first child, I was really shocked at how my body changed and how much weight I gained. I gained 70 pounds during my pregnancy and definitely couldn’t wait until I was cleared to workout again after giving birth. After hard work, I was able to get back to my ...

New Skincare Tips I Learned

Last week I had the honor of being the skincare model for Sulwhasoo at the Amazon Creator Summit in Hotel Del Coronado. It was the first event that I ever went to with no make-up but hey, I got paid for it so all good! Lol. Any way, it was such an amazing experience! I basically sat on stage while the Director of Education of Sulwhasoo (and Laneige, Innisfree and Amorepacific) spoke about the brand and gave us all the tips on K-Beauty skincare. She demonstrated the products on me of course. I was SOLD. I'll link all the products below. It is luxury skincare so the prices are a little steep ...

You already know I added all those products (pictured above) to my cart for my kids. I'm positive they will be entertained until it's time to go back to school! ...

Disney Cruise FAQs

I can't believe it's been almost 4 months since we got back from our cruise! It feels like it was just yesterday but forever at the same time lol. I had major withdrawals for literally 2 weeks. I still miss it and can't wait to go on another one in the future! I'm finally getting to answer some of the "frequently asked questions" I got on IG! Sorry for the major delay! How much is the cruise? What's free on the cruise/included with your reservation? How was the food on the cruise? How was your room? Is there a difference between the Merrytime cruise and a ...

Prepping for Your Disney Cruise

Hi! So we went on the Disney Wonder Merrytime Cruise to Cabo San Lucas last week and I'm already itching to go on another Disney Cruise! Since I have so much to share, I decided to do a bunch of separate posts than one novel lol. Here are things that I found super helpful to prep for our cruise: Download the Disney Cruise App As soon as you book your reservation, download the app! Once everything is fully paid, you'll be able to book all your excursions and onboard activities. They sell out super quick so try to do this ASAP. We booked the "Coastal Highlights" excursion in Cabo but ...

A Staycation in Carlsbad

We were recently invited to Sheraton Carlsbad for a 2-night stay, dinner at their on-site restaurant, 7 Mile Kitchen, and a shuttled trip to the Pumpkin Patch at the Carlsbad Strawberry Company and I obviously had to think loooong and hard about going or not... Just kidding! Lol. I said YES in a heartbeat of course! We had the best time. As a family with 3 little kids, a kid-friendly resort is super important to me and the Sheraton Carlsbad did not disappoint. The Room We stayed in the Premium Ponto Studio Suite and it was a great space for my family of 5. There's a separate room with ...
