Packing a suitcase, hitting the road and jetting outta town has always been one of my favorite things to do. But let’s get real; it means taking time off of work and spending more money than you’d probably like to think about. But what if you could still enjoy the perks of being on vacation, and not have to travel any further than your own city?

Recently, we were invited to enjoy a little “daycation” at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, courtesy of ResortPass. They are an online booking platform for day access to resorts for pool, spa and amenity use. They currently feature resorts in CA, AZ, TX, FL and even HI! I love the idea of hosting a bachelorette or birthday party at one of the resort pools! What a fun girls day it would be!

Booking a day pass is as easy as 1,2,3:

1) Select the type of access you want (day pass, cabana, spa pass)

2) Indicate the number of people in your party

3) Select an available day in the calendar

Boom. You’re done. Time to get your relaxation on πŸ™‚

The best part about our day was that the drive home was only 20 minutes! Instead of having to catch a flight or gear up for a long road trip home, we got to enjoy a nice “vacation” right in our own backyard.

And if you head over to my Instagram later tonight, I’ll be hosting a giveaway for you and a friend to enjoy your very own “daycation” courtesy of ResortPass!

You won’t want to miss it!! XOΒ β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯

    happy august!

    You know, I don’t know why I’ve never though of doing a staycation. It’s definitely more affordable and you can explore parts of your city or town that you’ve never seen before or haven’t had much time to truly enjoy. I’ll have to do this, especially now with a baby, a one day escape is more practical for us than a week out of the state or country. I love your bikini and that bag btw, so cute! Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a great week!

  51. Agree Shauna, the jet set lifestyle can be stressful. This however, looks fabulous. One would be amazed at the beauty in our own neighborhoods. You just have to explore. Love the swim suit. Looks like you had a blast.
