Mexico you have my heart. This place has been one of my favorite places by far to visit. The entire trip was so enriched with so much culture. We spent our time swimming, snorkeling, hiking, and lots and lots of eating.
Where to stay:
We were so lucky to spend our entire week at the beautiful Pueblo Bonito Resort right on the beach. It had beautiful rooms, amazing restaurants, and a gorgeous pool. We would wake up every morning and have breakfast on our balcony while we stared out on the vast ocean. Room service was amazing and came twice during the entire week to make our beds, replace towels, and do our dishes which was really helpful.
What to do:
We decided to rent jet skis for an hour one day through our resort and it ended up being so much fun. It was $80 for an hour. The boys had adrenaline rushes while I was holding on for dear life on the back. Haha
The other few days we went snorkeling. The fish were amazing and so colorful – and there was 30+ feet of clear waters. The first day we took a taxi about 20 min away to a snorkeling beach and spent a hour chasing fish around the reef. The second day we decided to hike in to a snorkeling spot near Lover’s Beach. There were lots of people out adventuring. There were so many people gathered around the reef snorkeling, scuba diving, and cliff jumping. We had a lot of fun at this spot – the only thing I would suggest is if you’re hiking try to go during later/earlier hours and bring lots of water. You can also take a taxi boat out to the spot at about $7-$10 per person.
I enjoyed an amazing hour swedish massage one morning at the resort as well. It was so relaxing and I felt refreshed and ready for the day. The masseur was very professional and totally took care of me. Thanks Maria! They had lots of promotions going on during our stay, which I’m sure carries on all year, so it was only $67 for the hour.
One of my favorite activities that we did was the sunset taxi boat ride. This was one of the most inexpensive activities that we did but it was gorgeous and so worth it. They took us on a 30 min tour so we could get views all around the amazing rock formations and the sea life.
If you’re not into any of those activities, just get yourself a beach towel, and a pina colada, and sun bathe the entire time you’re there.
Where to eat:
I was so surprised at how easy it was to eat vegetarian meals here. Almost every restaurant had a long vegetarian menu to choose from.
The Office – This restaurant was a very popular spot in Cabo and a lot of fun to visit. We had a hard time getting a reservation the first few nights. It was a very lively atmosphere, and is right on the beach – so you can dig your toes in the sand while you’re having dinner.
Mi Casa – This place is a must go while you’re in Cabo! I adored this spot. There was a beautiful gift shop at the front of the restaurant, and a band that played wonderful music while we ate. On top of all that, the food was to die for.
Make sure you guys don’t miss the opportunity to travel to this amazing place during your life. I will absolutely go back again.
Last, I just want to let everyone know I will be doing a giveaway on my instagram next monday for you to get your hands on one of these Nena and Co. bags. Make sure you’re following me on there so you can be involved. xx
I’m home!!! Visiting Mexico last week was such a wonderful experience. I can’t wait to share all my stories, pictures, and videos with you all. Everyone should visit at some point in their lives. It’s so rich with culture and kind people.
This collaboration with GLO TATTS was so dreamy. Ian did such an amazing job on the photography and videography. Go give him a follow and lots of love! I’ve been loving these metallic tattoos for the past few seasons. They’re such a fun addition to your summer wear. I love how easy it is to build these and keep adding on, since every pack goes together so well. They have everything from metallic tattoos to bindis and so on.
Happy Fourth of July everyone. Im wishing you all a safe and fun holiday with your loved ones. I’m currently sitting in the LAX airport waiting for our flight to Cabo. I can’t wait to be swimming in the beautiful ocean.

Hi everyone! We are heading off to Cabo San Lucas in a few days so I’ve just been packing all day long. We’re going to be swimming in the ocean with all the fishes and doing lots of exploring. Hope everyone is having a beautiful week and getting ready for the fourth of July. I’m a little bummed that I won’t be in the states for the holiday. The fourth is one of my favorite holidays to spend with friends and family, swimming, eating, and watching fireworks from the porch.
Shall we all just swoon over Noa Elle for a min? I love all the bohemian vibes these guys have on their site. You can go check out more of their fun stuff for your summer wardrobe here.
Like wildflowers; you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.
I love me a fun maxi dress. They’re always flattering no matter your body type, and they will never go out of style. I’ve been wearing the hell out of this one from RAGA so far this summer. Love love love the pattern and the cut. Throw on some really fun red boots/sandals with it and you have an adorable 4th of July outfit.
Twist Native is a really amazing company with a cause. They’ve partnered with women artisans to create the beautiful bags pictured below. Through every purchase you make, they give back to these women and support their local communities.
Hope you are all having the best week. To all of my fellow college students out there congrats on finishing another semester, hope your finals were a breeze. Summer can officially start for everyone! Which leads me into this post. Continuing the summer inspired posts I wanted to get up a post with my friends from hiptipico market. The amazing top I’m wearing in these photos is called a huipil. Huipils are traditional hand embroidered Mayan blouses, and they’re still worn today in Guatemala. I’m such a huge fan of embroidery already, but on top of that, these tops are so colorful and fun for summer. These guys just launched a new site and have the coolest vintage shop, and amazing bags like the one pictured below.
At the center of nature’s elements and all that we are lies the spirit. It radiates our deepest hopes and illuminates the promise of our greatest potential and unexplored paths.

Welcome to another beginning to a beautiful weekend.
I’ve had a lot of questions on the outfit details from this shoot recently so I wanted to do a post for you guys with everything you need to know.
Both dresses are from RAGA. I’m in love with the print, and both styles of these dresses. The strappy back dress is adorable with a lace bra underneath for summer. Or even layer it with a sweater, and some over the knee boots for colder weather. I love long maxi for it’s length and the high neck + button down back. I truly can’t pick a favorite one. Really excited to get my use out of them this summer.
