Dog Dates At The Garden :

Dog Dates At The Garden :

Alex and I absolutely love getting active, and bringing our little Scoob’s along. But the same trails can get boring from time to time, luckily we got invited by the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens to enjoy an evening date at their beautiful lushes gardens this past Thursday! They offer this cute event every Thursday from 5:30PM to 7:30PM called “Dog Dates at the Garden”, you can bring your Fur Babies and enjoy some fresh air and fun!

Fairchild’s mission is to save tropical plant diversity by exploring, explaining and conserving the world of tropical plants; fundamental to this task is inspiring a greater knowledge and love for plants and gardening so that all can enjoy the beauty and bounty of the tropical world. They carry a variety of beautiful tropical plants, all while keeping them in impeccable conditions; you can definitely tell that they really want to keep these gardens growing for a life to come. The garden itself is huge, 83 acres to be exact! Although we didn’t walk throughout the whole property, because they do did have a specific trail that you’re supposed to stay on, we honestly enjoyed it a lot and needless to say Scooby was exhausted afterwards 😂.

After we took a walk through the Garden we got to enjoy a little something they like to call “Yappy Hour at the Glasshouse Cafe”, and the best part is that it’s meant for you and your Fur Babies to enjoy! Yappy Hour at the Glasshouse Cafe includes a variety of Tapas with complimentary snacks for your pups + complimentary water for all thirsty pups too. They’ve also got a little something for the Pawents; like Prosciutto Toast, Pretzel Knots, Veggie Hummus Wrap, and a Mini-bar with some yummy wine or beer, to cheers the night away ✨!

Needless to say, we will definitely be back! It’s such a cute #DateNightIdea for any Pawent’s that would love to include their little Fur Babies on their next date-night + it’s SCOOBY APPROVED 🐶!

Beachy Essentials :

Beachy Essentials :

Some would say that your only worry should be if the tide is going to reach your chair, and although that does cross my mind whenever I’m relaxing by the shoreline, I also have found myself worrying about my skin and hair while I’m at the beach. It’s normal to worry about them because our skin + hair tend to dry up with sun and saltwater exposure, and especially when you’ve got treated hair. But throughout the years, I have found great products that I can’t live without them, for whenever we head over to a tropical destination. I have compiled a list for you guys of a few products that I have been using for a while now and a few other ones that I have recently added to my beach bag!

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 70

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radian Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30

Sunscreen is extremely important no matter the occasion, I normally wear sunscreen every single day and I try to make sure that my daily moisturizer for both my body & face contain some amount of SPF. But of course, whenever you’re headed to the beach you need much more than just a little amount of SPF, so these are the 2 sunscreens I like to use while I am laying out in the sun. I actually don’t wear any tanning lotion, I prefer not to and I don’t really feel like I need it, because I tend to get a nice natural tan with these two sunscreens.

Banana Boat Moisturizing Aloe Lotion

Ladies! Please moisturize after laying out in the sun!!! It’s such an important step that most women tend to forget, but trust me you will notice the difference right after the 1st application. Whenever you lay out in the sun, your skin tends to get dry and moisturizing it with some Aloe will definitely help bond your skin together. What I would normally do, was that once we showered back at the room I would moisturize with Aloe all throughout my body.

Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Lotion

Like I said before, moisturizing is needed especially after a day out in the sun. So I personally like to ‘extra moisturize’, after the Aloe dries up, I go back and usually moisturize with a regular lotion. But I recently purchased this specific lotion, because of it’s great reviews. This natural glow moisturizer is truly a game changer ladies, it gradually created a flawless, natural-looking color while also hydrating my skin!

EOS Lip Balm

I’m not lying when I say that I use this lip balm on the daily, but I feel like lip balm is also very important when you’re headed to the beach! Just like your skin and hair, your lips tend to get dry and chappie, which is NOT cute! So make sure you get your favorite lip balm and stick it in your beach bag NOW!

Olaplex No 3, 4, 5 & 6

So when it comes to Olaplex, there’s only good things to say! I got these 4 products after I decided to lighten my hair and now I can’t live without them! They are a bit pricey, but worth every penny, because you will notice the difference in your hair once you use them. I basically washed my hair every single day that we were at the beach, and after every wash I would apply Olaplex No 6, which is a styling hair cream. The styling hair cream helped with keeping the frizz away and would make my hair extra soft. Now with Olaplex No 3, I only used it once throughout our whole trip. This specific product is a hair mask, so it’s not meant to be used every single day, using it just once did the trick!

Unbrush Detangling Hair Brush

A good detangling hair brush is a total must, especially after you get out of the water and you just want to brush out your hair – I would totally recommend this one because I’ve noticed that it doesn’t tug & pull my hair!

OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner

I always like to have my hair feel smooth, so whenever I was out of the water and ready to sunbathe, I would splat some of this coconut milk conditioner onto my hair and brush it through. It would obviously condition my hair and give it these cute ‘beachy wavey’ style!

OGX Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

And of course, you can’t forget your serum! I would apply this every single day before and after applying the coconut milk conditioner. I’ve even found it very useful for whenever I would want to style my hair up on a bun or ponytail, rather than using gel or moose!

Hopefully you will find these products useful for your next beachy getaway, and as always Happy Friday!✨💛🌴

Baked Salmon Recipe :

Baked Salmon Recipe :

Whether you are in need of a fast, healthy dinner, a meal to wow the crowd, or just simply a protein that you can enjoy tonight and eat as leftovers the next day, this is the baked Salmon recipe for you! I try to mix-up our meals of the week as much as possible, so we’re always eating something different throughout the week, and I also love making fish at least once a week. This Monday I shared on my Insta stories that I was going to make Salmon for dinner & you guys were asking me to share my Salmon recipe ASAP, so here it is!

Ingredients :

  • 2 pound side of Salmon
  • 3 Limes – cut in half, plus extra for serving as desired
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper (or to personal taste)
  • Half an Onion sliced

How it’s Made :

  1. Remove the Salmon from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes while you preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking dish or rimmed baking sheet with a large piece of aluminum foil.
  2. Lightly coat the foil with olive oil, then arrange the Salmon right in the center.
  3. Squeeze the 3 limes onto the Salmon, making sure that the juices are staying within the baking tray.
  4. Sprinkle garlic salt and lemon pepper, rub to coat and lay sliced onions on top of the Salmon.
  5. Fold the sides of the aluminum foil up and over the top of the Salmon until it is completely enclosed. If your piece of foil is not large enough, place a second piece on top and fold the edges under so that it forms a sealed packet. Leave a little room inside the foil for air to circulate.
  6. Bake the Salmon for about 20-30 minutes, until the Salmon is almost completely cooked through at the thickest part. The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your Salmon. If your side is thinner (around 1-inch thick) check several minutes early to ensure that your Salmon does not overcook.
  7. Once you Salmon is cooked, remove the Salmon from the oven and carefully open the foil so that the top of the fish is completely uncovered. Change the oven setting to broil and return the Salmon to the oven for about 5-10 minutes, until the top of the Salmon and onions are slightly golden, make sure to keep an eye on the Salmon, just to make sure it doesn’t overcook during this process.
  8. To serve, cut the Salmon into portions & squeeze an extra lime for desired taste!

Bon Appétit
