Ensenada, Mexico

We rode some horses and had a jolly good time. I always take horse excursions when traveling, for some reason or another (I used to be a horse freak, remember?) Cost about $20 for two people to ride for about half an hour, but be sure to negotiate because I know you can get a better price than that :) *All filmed on iPhone 4S


 Destination: Treefort Music Festival / Location: Boise, Idaho / Cost: $30+

We've been asked by some of our readers about the music scene in Boise. I would say it's small compared to other cities, but it is definitely growing! Boise is such a chill place to live and has been known for being a great place to raise families, but in recent years it is growing in popularity for young up-and-coming artists too. The Treefort Music Fest provides the opportunity for Boise to host national and regional music scenes, while also showcasing local and upcoming talent. 

Every year we look forward to the Treefort Music Festival. It goes from March 20-23rd in downtown Boise. Tickets for a single day range from $30-$69, and general admission 4 day passes cost $139. With the cheapest pass you get to see bands play on the main stage, but with the other passes you get to enjoy all the venues over the span of the festival. The Treefort Music Fest is sponsored by local businesses and volunteers, and would not exist without the support of our community. 

Aside from the music, there are tons of local food vendors and talent including belly dancers, pole dancers [close your eyes children], and artists--there really are activities for everyone even if it is just people watching. I always love to walk around the streets and browse the thrift store trucks and see if I can snag any good records. What a great way to spend the weekend! Hope you can make it next year!


"Joshua Tree is a place for the untamed souls who need to get out and stretch their legs. Located just a few short hours from LA, the high desert of Joshua Tree National Park is known for its vastness, hiking trails, rock climbing and amazing camping. It's the perfect escape from the city."

You know those moments when you see something that was a part of your childhood that you have long forgotten, then suddenly in a whirlwind of memories it comes to the front of your mind like it was yesterday? So much in fact, that you remember every last detail of that item almost like it was your childhood muse. Well, this photo did that for me today.

I remember these stuffed animals and how much we each loved them. I (triplet #2, Lisa), would carry around my koala bear everywhere I went. It's nose grew a tear and began losing it's cotton so I could push it in like a button! Kylie with her gray poodle, and Megan with her white, sometimes left me feeling sad that I didn't have a black triplet pup. But mom reminded me that we were each special and the koala was made for me. Most likely it only came in two colors, but hey, I like the way my mom put it better :). I love memories like this. I love being a triplet.


It can be hard sometimes to keep your skin's healthy glow while traveling, especially in cold and dry places that make your skin itch or hot and tropical places where your skin needs the most protection. We have experimented with a few different products to help you know what to pack.

Previse Skincare is an all natural, eco-friendly customized skin care line that is perfect for travel. They provide a full line of products that contain natural ingredients that are beneficial for your entire body. It only takes a few minutes to complete their three step skincare regiment, perfect for when you're on the go. Another great bonus! They're all carry-on travel size!

Step 1.0 Purify- Replace your current cleanser with Previse Purify

Mmmm! So refreshing! I love washing my face with Previse because it's so natural and organic. You can totally FEEL the difference (and smell!) If your skin is still suffering from the Winter blues, dry and irritated, or maybe you got a little too much sun over the weekend - Previse Purify is mild and gentle on the skin, and also relieving. The wash is made with essential oils designed to relax and calm, washing away your anxiety and stress from a busy day traveling and commuting.

Step 2.0 Nutrify- Nourish your skin with Nutrify

Wow! From the second I dropped this onto my skin and gently rubbed it in I was amazed at how soft my skin immediately felt. I wasn't sure how much to use since it is in a droplet form, but I found a little went a long way. This moisturizer is perfect for tough skin places like your knuckles, knees, and elbows, but can be used all over. The smell was very mild if anything at all. I also have very sensitive skin so I am wary of the products I use to avoid rash breakouts, but I found no such problems with Previse Nutrify. It didn't leave my skin crying for more at the end of the day either [like some typical lotions do] because it helps promote new cell growth.

Step 3.0 Defend- Prevent skin damage and protect from sun exposure

As I've grown older, I've realized more and more the importance of sunscreen and preventing pre-mature age spots. Having lived in a tropical place and currently living beachside, I've put this to use daily and find comfort knowing my skin is protected. I apply step 3.0 right before putting on my make up. Its a nice little serum that absorbs beautifully into the skin without leaving any oily or greasy residue. Additionally, when I decide to go to the beach or hang out poolside, I bag the make up and go straight for the SPF 25. It contains zinc oxide, so does leave a slight white appearance, but it protects just the perfect amount that you won't get burnt but you will still go home feeling sun kissed.

Previse found a simple way to keep your skin healthy while traveling so you don't have to lug around big bottles of sun screen or lotion. We love a good product that will easily fit into our toiletry bags and enhances our natural beauty on the days where make-up and hair straightening is just not gonna happen.

Destination: Deep Creek Hot Springs / Activity: Hiking & soaking / Distance from LA: About 45 minutes

I CANNOT BELIEVE I FORGOT TO TELL YOU GUYS ABOUT THIS PLACE! I went here in January with a group of friends and totally forgot to share it here. Deep Creek is AWESOME. It's such a rad place to soak and don't be surprised when you see a bunch of nudies in the pools, too. There are several pools of varying temperatures, and then a nice cool one to dip in for a quick zing refresher.

We took the Bradford Ridge trail to get there, and it's one of the hardest but totally worth it. Such beautiful views, and a great way to get in some cardio on your weekend. If you are in California and haven't been here, do yourself a favor and get soaking. Learn more about how to get there at this very helpful site here!

It's so rad that this amazing place is only about 45 minutes from LA. You would never guess it - and people wouldn't even believe you! It's just too good to be true. Another reason LA is awesome!  The 1-hour commute proves itself right again... #awesome



When you're traveling in Central America, you HAVE to look for choco banano (chocolate banana) stands! They are easy to find, and insanely delicious costing only about a couple quarters. We found this little joint in the beautiful beach town San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. The banana is frozen and dipped in chocolate, so it's the perfect refreshing treat with just the right amount of fruit to feel fresh and chocolate for your afternoon pick-me-up. I could live on these things.


Destination: San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua 

Beach combing in San Juan Del Sur. The sun is setting on the horizon and the sky is painted with Spring-inspired pastels, and you only hear the splash of the water as you slosh through the tide combing for treasures. It's the perfect way to end the day of sipping batidos on the beach and soaking the suns rays. Peaceful. Warm. Relaxing. You are feeling quite wonderful now, aren't you?


Destination: Westside Drive In / Location: Boise, Idaho / Price: Under $10

Is that not the most delicious potato you've ever seen? Idaho really does it best.

...April Fool's!
 It's ice-cream. No but really, tho.

Ice-cream rolled into the shape of a potato,
covered in cocoa, frozen and cut in half,
then topped with whipped cream
all on a plate of chocolate syrup.

It looks just like a baked potato, but it's not.
Stop by Westside Drive In for Idaho's famous ice-cream potato,
and other good food too made by a certified Chef!
