Back Home!

I just got back home from the 5 day cruise that I went on with my family. We had an AMAZING time! I loved not having to do anything for myself and always having food available (duh). There was not one moment I wasn't having a good time. We cruised to Cozumel and Progreso on the Carnival Elation. It isn't one of the bigger ships, but I was totally okay with that. There weren't as many people as there were on past cruises I've been on and it was so nice because we didn't have to wait in long lines and there were always layout chairs available. There was plenty for us to do as a family and we also did some girls (me, my mom, and sister) things while my dad and brother went off and did guy things. We went to brunch and tea time, two things we LOVE, and had such a great time together. When we got off in Cozumel we signed up for riding the dolphins!! I LOVE DOLPHINS. I loved dolphins already before this experience and now I love them even more. They were so sweet and I had the time of my life with them! I look like a 12 year old haha!
Not only did we get to ride them, but we got to kiss them too!
They were so precious and we had a blast in Cozumel! 
We went snorkeling and paddle boating at this resort in Cozumel as well, but this was definitely the highlight of my day... well of my cruise altogether! 
Progreso was eh... The beach was crowded and there were a lot of people asking if you wanted to buy things nonstop. There was a lot of poverty there, and my heart goes out to all of those people. I'm still glad we got to experience Progreso and give a little extra to the people there and to realize how blessed we were to be able to be on the cruise having the time of our lives. Humbling. 
After all of our stops we had our last day at sea on our way back and we went to brunch and had some delicious blueberry pancakes YUM. We soaked up the sun, shopped, went to tea, and played bingo on the ship, and just hung out together. Overall it was a fantastic cruise with the people I love. 
Now that I'm back, I still feel like I'm swaying on the ship when I walk around my house. I could barely stand up still yesterday and it's such a funny feeling. 
On to other random things... When I got home I was surprised with my very first ipsy bag! Wooo hooo! And this morning I online shopped way too much (oops). I ordered some things I've been eyeing at Ulta and I've been waiting for them to do some kind of deal before I ordered, and today they had a free 16 piece bag of goodies when you spend over $60 or something, and I'm all about free stuff, so I finally placed my order! Yayyy!
Back to my first ipsy bag...
Inside I got the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal beach spray, Bareminerals 5 in 1 BB eyeshadow, Pixi lip balm tint in Pretty Pink, Pop beauty sunkissed bronzer, and the Hang Ten natural sunscreen tanning oil. 
Overall I really like it so far! I've used the lip balm which I like. It's a very pretty color on the lips and is very moisturizing. I used the beach spray yesterday and I like that too. The bareminerals 5 in 1 BB eyeshadow is a cool concept and makes for a good eyeshadow base. I haven't tried the other items yet, but I've swatched the bronzer and its SUPER sparkly. I'm not a huge fan of sparkly bronzers so I don't know how much I will use that one, but I'll give it a try and see how it goes. So far, I'm loving my ipsy stuff!

That's about all I have to talk about for now! Hope you had a great weekend!
