Summer Vibes

Family Fun at Belmont Park

My family and I were invited to spend the day at Belmont Park and we had the best time! Leo and I haven't been to Belmont Park since before kids so it was awesome to bring the kids for their first time. If you're a San Diego local, you know that Belmont Park is such an iconic part of San Diego. It's definitely a must to visit! We went on a Monday hoping that it wouldn't be too busy. While there were a good amount of people there, I'm sure it's nowhere near what it would be like on a weekend lol. We parked at the parking right by the entrance. It costs $20 but closer parking with 3 little ...

Fun in the Sun with Walmart

I can't believe it's already summer vacation for my kids! Of course, we will be having a bunch of pool days so I'm glad Walmart has everything I need for some fun in the sun all at the super affordable prices! From pool floaties for adults and kids to splash pads and water tables and to swimwear for the family... Walmart is your one stop shop! Ok but how cute is that Seashell float?! *Cue The Little Mermaid soundtrack* Lol. Hope you all have a wonderful summer! Happy shopping! ...

Fitness Journey Update

It's been awhile since I did a little fitness journey update and since I had to take photos of this new workout set for a collab, I thought why not?! I think the last time I did an update was right after I finished Whole 30 over a year ago. What my fitness routine currently looks like is working out 5x a week and eating healthy (for the most part) and in moderation. I go to the gym right after I drop off the kids. It's a non-negotiable (unless I'm sick). Tired isn't an excuse lol. I still use the Future Fit App and I still love it! My trainer is awesome and is always to helpful. She gives ...

Easter Themed Crafts 2022

Hi guys! I can't believe it's almost Easter. The kids are on Spring Break next week, which is the week leading up to Easter, so I thought it would be fun to gather some Easter themed craft ideas. My post from a couple years ago is gaining traction again on Pinterest so why not create a 2.0 version? Lol. Enjoy! Tag me on Instagram if you make any of these! Please note that these are not my photos, I gave credit to each amazing mama who made these and shared on Pinterest. Foam Cup Bunnies (courtesy of One Little Project) So simple and so cute!! These would make cute little treat cups ...

Springs Nails Inspo

A little late but happy Spring guys! Not sure what the weather is like where you live but it was summer vibes all last week here in So Cal (it was rainy the past couple of days). Just thought I'd make a quick post with some nail inspo for the season. I literally scroll through Pinterest for ideas while I'm sitting in the nail salon. I appreciate all the love I get on my nail posts btw! :) OH and I started a hashtag for my nails. Go follow #themamaqueennails Any way, here you go! ...

Sky Park at Santa’s Village

Visiting SkyPark at Santa's Village was definitely the main reason we went to Lake Arrowhead. We were deciding between Lake Arrowhead or Big Bear but I'm obsessed with Christmas and have been wanting to go to Sky Park soooo Lake Arrowhead it was! I was so happy that my dad was in town during this trip so that he was able to come with us :) The kids had a blast spending some much needed quality time with their grandpa, AKA G-pop! First of all, they are only open from Thursday-Sunday! I'm so glad I contacted them because we literally were planning to go on a Wednesday. I would recommend ...

What’s in My Fanny Pack?

I've traded in my big tote pack filled with junk for a fanny pack with just my everyday essentials. I realized I didn't need everything that I normally throw into my big bags so I opted for a fanny pack because of it's convenience. It's so comfy too that I usually keep it on in the car too lol. With 3 kids, if I can condense the things I need to bring for myself... the better. Here's what I keep inside: My phone - Used it to take the picture so it's not in the flat lay lolKeys - Duh.Hand sanitizer - Love these mini ones from Bath & Body WorksHand lotion - My hands get dry ...

The Best Photo Editing Apps

Just like the different social media platforms each have their purpose, the same goes for photo apps! You just can't have one, in my opinion. I literally use them all for specific reasons... It's definitely a process! So no, I don't just snap a photo and post it directly from my iPhone's photo album. I mean we can't have it all right? Lol. Here are my current fave photo apps and the reason why I use them: Adobe Lightroom - For editing certain parts of the photo and removing unwanted objects (or people lol) Lensa - For quickly blurring the background (it only works well with photos ...
