This summer I embarked on a trip to Playa Del Carmen in Riviera Maya, Mexico. This was our fourth time in the country because it is only a couple hours flight from Canada so quick to get to. We traveled one day to Tulum, where we visited fascinating Mayan ruins. The ancient archaeological site was so cool to explore and learn the Aztec history of the people there. We got a lot of bug bites that day as it was the rainy season. The tour included riding ATVs trucks to go rappelling into an underwater cave, where we then snorkeled in. Also tried ziplining for the first time through the jungle so overall it was an epic adventure. Continue reading

Floral print dresses always seem to come back in style every spring and summer season. I love to wear this gorgeous gown from Leota New York in their Fleur Nouveau print. Wrap dresses are very flattering to wear and give a elegant, put-together vibe. Leota dresses are hand-painted in New York and washable as well which makes their clothing super wearable.
Luxury jewelry can last for years, and is a worthwhile investment for items you can wear on an everyday basis. This is why I want to introduce to you a jewelry retailer called Mejuri. They utilize high quality metals and jewels as materials. I love their minimal aesthetic and simple, elegant pieces.
With summer in full swing, it’s time to go visit the beach! Funny story, went last week for a beach bbq and was in charge of bringing the grill. Turns out the only one I had was an old school charcoal grill we could not get to start, and ended up having to go to a friend’s place to cook instead. Anyways, I always bring the same essentials in my beach bag. For swimwear, stripes are very popular right now, as are floppy hats so I’ve linked some cute options below for you. Also, sunscreen is a must to protect yourself from UV rays so don’t forget that! I like to bring a good novel or notebook as well to pass the time.
