A Sex in the City Staycation at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Phoenix

Parenting life is fun and all but every now and then you need an escape just to relax and be at a distance to regain your inner strength, reconnect with your love, and forget about the demanding life of chores and crying babies.

When it comes to a sexy and chic staycation – I would highly recommend an experience in the heart of Downtown Phoenix at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Phoenix. Definitely a top romantic hotel with breathtaking skyline views!

The Best Thing!

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Phoenix has the 1930’s vibe with the most incredible views from Floor 13th Rooftop Bar located at the very top of the Hotel, so you can maximize your romantic date night.

With the Hilton Clean Stay put into place, our stay felt very safe and comfortable in the King Suite that was accommodated for us. We truly LOVE Hilton Hotels so much for going over and beyond the standard of cleanliness and redefining the meaning of hospitality cleaning services.

The room was on the 7th floor overlooking downtown. It was so sparkly and romantic.

Our stay was relaxing and in the heart of Downtown Phoenix – Dining, Entertainment and the Light Rail option isn’t a problem. There is a lot of great options to choose from when finding a place for dinner but the most impressive rooftop bar is available with

Floor 13 Rooftop Bar located on the 13th Floor on the hotel.

Thank you so much Floor 13th Rooftop Bar for Inviting Us Out!!

Celebrating Women Empowerment

Being able to Work from Home is a Dream Come True!

It’s with great honors to be Recognized, Featured and Highlighted in

Phoenix Entrepreneurs Magazine as

TOP 25 ENTREPRENEURS TO LOOKOUT FOR 2021!!!

Of course your girl had to Celebrate with the Hottest Rooftop Bar in the Phoenix Valley!

Floor 13th Rooftop Bar hosted my little celebration last Saturday night. Our Mixologist was the sweetest and she definitely knows how to make a drink! Everyone was so welcoming and inviting, I felt so special!

She Leaves a Little Sparkle Wherever She Goes…

Cheers to BIG HUSTLES!!

Sparkle Momm

The next morning Michael and I headed to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast. It’s just a 3 minute walk from the hotel. You guys all know how much I love my munchkins!

Until our next staycation getaway – Be Safe and Continue to Wear your Mask.

Restaurant of the Week | Daily Dose Kitchen + Bar | Tempe, AZ

Daily Dose is a good time. And that’s because its owners are a pretty good time too. Matt and JenLyn Long are the hard-working, fun-loving couple behind Daily Dose Midtown and Daily Dose Old Town.

Daily Dose Old Town Bar & Grill opened on Scottsdale Road in 2008 and Daily Dose Midtown on Highland Ave. followed in 2012. Since then, Daily Dose has become known for its mouthwatering, made-from-scratch dishes like Cinnamon Roll Pancakes, Breakfast Nachos, Banana Bread French Toast, and the Hangover Sandwich – always a fan favorite when the Spring Training crowd hits Old Town.

Breakfast Nacho

The Longs are committed to fresh, flavorful, real food. That means no shortcuts. Don’t miss the Daily Dose Three-Berry Compote, which is made in-house daily, as are all the dressings and the flavorful turkey sausage. (Tip: If you want to buy extra to take home, just ask!) The coffee, which is found both on the menu and the complimentary coffee cart out front, is locally brewed at Coffee Roasters in Scottsdale, and breads come from locally owned Capistrano Bakery.

Chicken and Waffles

Gluten-free foodies are big fans of Daily Dose gluten free pancakes and French toast. And while there are plenty of splurge-worthy items on the menu, diners looking for healthy breakfast and lunch items also have delicious options, such as the power bowl, peaches and cashew oats, tempeh burrito, and the egg white wrap, loaded with veggies and served with fruit.

The Longs run their “urban mom and pop” restaurants with the attention to detail that only comes from a locally owned business with owners who truly care. Come enjoy a dose of delicious food and a fun at Daily Dose Old Town or Daily Dose Midtown!

Welcome to The Prados Life Foundation.

We are excited to announce our first giving of 2021.

Our very first giving will be for the benefit of this gorgeous little warrior, Elina.

Miss. Elina was born with Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS), a rare genetic disorder characterized by physical abnormalities affecting the fingers and toes (digits) and the head and facial (craniofacial) area.

Miss Elina was born with extra fingers and toes, which will require various surgeries later this year. These surgeries will include bilateral surgeries to her hands, skin grafts and reconstruction to her little fingers.

Elina is so strong and such a warrior! She had already overcome so many obstacles in life. She’s already had 2 surgeries to place shunts and is currently wearing braces to fix her little club foot.

In conjunction with Prados Beauty, The Prados Life Foundation will be donating 100% of profits raised from sales of The Elina Lashes. These beautiful lashes will be released this Friday on the Prados Beauty website.

The gorgeous Elina lashes will retail for $21. Every purchase you make will go directly to fund any expenses and needs Elina may need for her surgeries and life in general.

Thank you for supporting and following The Prados Beauty Life Foundation. Their work in only possible by amazing contributors and followers like you!

RESTURANT OF THE WEEK: Shane’s Rib Shack Glendale

9404 West Westgate Blvd.
Glendale, AZ
(623) 877-RIBS (7427)

It all started at the Shack!

Family. Hard work. Darn-good BBQ. That’s what Shane Thompson built his business around. In 2002, Shane ditched his corporate job, tossed his tie and followed a dream with his wife, Stacey. He dusted off his grandfather Big Dad’s secret BBQ recipe and opened up the very first Shack in McDonough, GA.

It wasn’t long before the community noticed how he always gives people more than what they pay for and treats everybody like family.

OH, AND MAKING THE BEST BBQ AROUND HELPED, TOO.

GIVING BACK

The real secret behind great BBQ is a sense of community. Shane and Stacey Thompson understand that supporting our local school, churches, hospitals and businesses keep our communities safe and strong.

That’s why, wherever there’s a Shane’s Rib Shack, there are employees making a positive impact. Whether it’s donating food, raising funds for churches, feeding hometown football teams, offering a comfy place for gatherings or rewarding students for good grades, giving back is always our #1 priority.

As a Stay-At-Home Mother of 3 little kiddos of my own. I’m not a complete expert on Homeschooling. But I do want to Share – What has worked for Me! – This will be my third year as a homeschooling teacher. My Oldest Valentino was homeschooled in Virtual Schooling and has earned Online Cerificates since he was 1 years old.

Homeschooling can be fun. Be MINDFUL. Most Importantly HAVE PATIENTS.

New Mexico Family Travels

It felt so great to be home!

Church Rock, New Mexico

Church Rock, New Mexico is where I was born and raised. I grew up with some of the most beauitful views of the Southwest. Navajo Country. The Heart of the Navajo. As a kid I played along these beautiful rocks and traveled with all my cousins through the caves and groves. The Sunsets are beauitful. Packed a sack lunch and came home until it was dark! – I miss those days.

Gallup, New Mexico will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up in these streets. Running for candy at the Parade. Hanging out at the Library. Having a drink with the family at the local pub. Eat at Jerry’s Cafe, Earl’s, and Don Diego’s all in a weekend. Yasssss….. I just love New Mexico Chili!
