Hola amigos! I hope you are all doing well! I know this post is long overdue and I apologize. I will be pretty busy for the next few months with my corporate job but I will try my absolute best to have content created for my blog.
Continuing on from my last entry, I wanted to share more beautiful pictures from my trip to Cabo! Going anywhere as colorful and stunning as Mexico, I wanted to make sure I was dressed for the occasion. My travel outfit included a bright orange ruffle tanktop paired with a bold turquoise blue crossbody bag. My style was very much influenced by all the vibrantartwork that I saw throughout the streets of Mexico.
During my stay, I also had the opportunity to go on a private tour of a small village called, Todos Santos. It is a 45 min drive from Cabo and has an entirely different atmosphere. For one, there are fewer tourists and fancy resorts in the area which makes it feel more of a relaxed boho vibe. The village is mainly comprised of decor boutiques and art murals. Tiny restaurants and a small yellow church are found nearby. There is even a hotel there called the “Hotel California,” which is believed to have inspired the Eagles to write their famous hit song. How cool is that, right?! On the tour, we also had time to stop by a blanket shop to see the process of crafting a patterned blanket. It takes a lot of effort and can take weeks to complete one detailed design. Seeing skillful artisans at work made me appreciate the final products even more.
Overall, Todos Santos is filled with a lot of character and charm. Although not nearly as big as Cabo, there were still many things to do and places to explore. Through this experience, I felt more connected to the history, culture, and people of Mexico. Don’t get me wrong, fancy resorts are a dream come true – but taking time to see other parts of Mexico made this trip even more worthwhile!
I attached a mixture of pictures in this post to share with you all. From my resort to the village, incredible artworks to beautiful flowers – I hope y’all enjoy them! ~b
When in Los Cabo, Mexico – camel rides are a must!
Hi guys! In the next few blog posts, I will be sharing one of my favorite trips of ALL TIME. A few years ago, Urban Decay flew me out to Cabo and it was honestly one of the most amazing experiences that I ever had! They booked my flight first class, had me stay in a fancy resort, and I was even chauffeured in a limo at one point. Urban Decay definitely knows how to spoil a girl (hehe..) and I felt extremely pampered the whole time. On the getaway, I was allowed to take one guest so I brought my father. The year prior to this trip, he was actually quite sick and had to be hospitalized for some time. If anyone deserved a break – it was definitely my hardworking dad. I felt extremely grateful to be able to share this once in a lifetime adventure with him. Urban Decay took care of everything and even covered all of our activities in Cabo. One of the things we were really excited about was camel riding in the desert. We ended up taking the Camel Quest Riding Tour at Wild Canyon. There, we were able to ride and interact with these friendly giants. The guides also allowed us to feed and play games with the camels. It was such a fun and memorable experience. I was actually surprised by how playful they were! Below are some of my favorite pictures. 🙂 ~b
I can’t believe next week is Thanksgiving?! It always amazes me when reflecting back just how fast time seems to go. A few weeks back I witnessed the beautiful mass accession of a dozen hot air balloons and it was simply breathtaking. They soared gracefully through the blissful blue skies. I was enchanted by the playful scene as I watched the balloons paint the plain skies with vibrant pops of colors and various fun patterns. They continue to float on to their final destination with a sense of carefreeness – a lost of distraction and time but still guided by the wind.
What I Wore:
My outfit was very much inspired by the season’s color palette of burgundy leaves and rustic twigs. My nomadic tribal print poncho blanket embodied the free spirit vibe of the celebration. Though it was a loose fitting layer, it still provided a flattering effortless chic shape. The fringe tassel detailing also added another stylish boho element to the overall look. Perhaps the best part is the fact that I thrifted this staple F21 item for $12 dollars (talk about a steal!) . To complete my whole outfit, I paired it with comfy distressed denim jeans and a cozy knit sweater. So even though chilly days are in the forecast ahead – I hope you guys don’t always have to compromise on some fun fall fashion! ~b
Happy November y’all! In this blog post i’m excited to share with you guys my new bike! I won a Schwinn bike for my boyfriend so he purchased this cute bike for me so we could go cycling together. We have this new thing where we are riding to all the art murals in our city. So far, it’s been a fun and cool way to explore! I also ended up naming my bike Minty…ha – how original, I know 🙂 . It actually took us a while to find a bike because I am so petite. I was set on getting a cruiser style bike with gears but this was not a common combination. We looked online and in stores everywhere but the bikes we looked at were often times too big or didn’t have gears. We eventually got lucky on a trip to Walmart and found my Huffy Parkside City Bike! Not only is it cute and a great bike but it’s also super affordable. It retails for $119 before tax. I highly recommend this bike for someone around 5 feet tall (although it comes in a bigger size if you are taller). I’ve had the bike for a little over a month now and I love it! I am planning to make the bike a little more old school by adding vintage elements to it. Think wicker basket, brown leather handles, and pin striped wheels. It’s on my list of projects to do! 🙂 All in all, I seriously recommend this bike for anyone looking for a stylish bike with functionality – it’s the perfect mix of mountain + road + cruiser all in one!
