Travel to Carlsbad + 20% off a ResorTime vacation

If you follow me on Instagram you are well aware that we were back in my happy place (the beach) a few weeks ago. Actually, we were back in Carlsbad - this time to check out the Carlsbad Seapointe Resort through ResorTime!

Carlsbad Seapointe Resort

I can't tell you how much we love staying in rooms with full kitchens + the amenities of the big hotels. The Carlsbad Seapointe Resort is beautiful with calming rooms, great views and plenty of space to do hand stands.

There is a beach right across the street and you can check out towels, wagons, chairs, boogie boards, sand toys etc from the resort! There are several different beaches nearby if there is something in particular you look for in a beach. The one across the street here is a little rocky near the shore (the boys liked finding the rocks) and depending on the tide and weather if you want to surf/body board you may want to drive a few minutes to one of the other beaches.

We had a really fun family dinner at the Grand Pacific Palisades (that has a secret entrance to Legoland). I love the service ResorTime offers even more each time I get to talk with the awesome people that work with them. We're even thinking of trying out one of the properties they rent out on Kauai next year (you know how much I'm in love with Kauai and we need a good small family place to refer friends to).

We love Carlsbad (sad we didn't get a chance to surf with the guys at SoCal Surf Lessons) and will likely be back again soon! They had some great deals going at the Carlsbad Seapointe and we were already plotting a trip with friends. It would be a great place to get together and just be. We love making our own food and there's a Costco and a Ralph's nearby so the guys have access to all they need to cook us amazing meals ;)

Going through ResorTime means that you'll get the home like accommodations that allows for a bit more relaxation, preparing some meals yourself but with the best parts of hotel amenities.

Personalized Fall Gift Basket

I LOVE giving gifts. Especially small, random, no special occasion gifts. Although Fall is a special occasion all on it's own. I saw these awesome to-go cups at Target and had to grab them. All the to-go cups I've seen are really boring or flat out ugly. These are super cute and at $3 something for 12 not bad at all! They inspired a little random gift giving so I thought I'd share!

I used this awesome scarf stamp set (still available) from Studio Calico. I'm not a huge stamp person (I almost always use black and grey) but I love having them around for reasons exactly like this. How CUTE did they make these cup sleeves?!

I LOVE simple projects like this because they allow me a little bit of creative time without the huge mess. I'll definitely be using these stamps some more. I hope Target puts out Winter cups that are just as cute!

Everything else in the basket (including the little plastic cauldron) is from Target as well (where else?!) The tape wrapped around the cauldron is from The Underground Studio Calico Project Life kit - I'm giving one away HERE!
