This past weekend the family and I headed to Monterey for a day trip. Our favorite town in the area is Carmel-by-the-Sea. I love Carmel and make a goal of visiting several times each year!! It's here I can smell the salty Pacific, eat sweet treats and be renewed. Staycations work best for growing families like ours.
We planned to spend time in Carmel then attend a family baby shower later that afternoon. While scooping up our steamy cups of cocoa I noticed Ms. Fabulous postcards with a special invite to celebrate nine year's of business and their newly expanded location. Plans were already set to visit her shop as this was usually one of the hightlights for me. And needless to say when someone invites you to enjoy Mimosa's, sweet treats and a beauty refresh YOU GO!!
Kara Muzzio of Ms. Fabulous did not dissappoint. I felt like a queen for the day trying on a few items and sampling the yummy goodness layed out for the festivities. The make-up artist from Cos Bar – Luxury Cosmetics busily worked on my make-up as we all shared stories and laughs. So much fun!!
The stylish clothing boutique Ms. Fabulous provided A+ customer service and quality frocks, jeans, sweaters, lingerie, and other items to spruce the closet. Love it!! #imbringingsexyback #befabulous
The fam was kind enough to let me hang out and indulge in the fun. Of course our little one didn't have much to complain about. The sweet treats kept her content. We continued our adventure and visited a few other shops.
The charm of Carmel Bakery and their delicious hot cocoa keep you warm. Smooth, mildly sharp and fresh cheese's from The Cheese Shop, Inc provided education and wine pairing options. This made me feel so adult!!
It never fails when I plan an excursion with the family we end up getting way more than we bargained for initially. This quick trip was time well spent!
Make time for the important things!!
