I bought this bracelet! Some of the money went to planned parenthood, but they had others that went to different charities to help women’s rights and even the environment.

Check them out!

New Trend Alert: Satin

fullsizeoutput_139afullsizeoutput_139cfullsizeoutput_139efullsizeoutput_139ffullsizeoutput_13a5fullsizeoutput_13a2fullsizeoutput_13ab

Recently I’ve noticed there has been a huge trend for satin and silk looks!
Every store seems to be filled with tops, dresses and even bottoms. I love following trends but I don’t like breaking the bank as you all know. So, I checked out Forever 21 to see if they were keeping up with the trend.

I found so many different kinds of tops it was hard to even pick, but this one seemed so cute I loved the tie detailing.

Forever 21 Open Shoulder Top

The only thing I don’t like about this top is that it wrinkles so easily even after I ironed it on low. Well, my boyfriend ironed it because your girl hates it haha.

Other Outfit Details: 

Pants: Calvin Klein

Shoes: Genuine Suede Lace up Sandals 

How do you feel about this trend? are you in or out?

What To Do In Cancun Mexico!

I just got back from my 5 day trip with my friends in Cancun, Mexico and I wanted to share some of my experiences and activities I did there.

Resort: The Oasis Palm

Pros: This is an all inclusive resort so that means food and drinks are included, which is great because going away and buying 3 meals a day can really add up.  There were 2 pools and they also had a great kid section if you travel with kids. The resort was right on the beach so all you had to do was grab a towel and jump right in!

Cons: Some things I didn’t like about this resort was little things were extra money. For example, the safe in your room and also the sodas in the mini refrigerator. They had a gift shop in the resort which was pretty pricey if you needed to buy extra sunscreen, meds, etc.

IMG_1645IMG_1671IMG_1666IMG_1768IMG_1743IMG_1789IMG_1639

Activities: Beach 

Pros: The first and probably most popular thing to do in Cancun is to enjoy the beaches! The sand is white and the water is clear and blue what else could you ask for?! So get yourself a drink and lay out and enjoy the sun.

Cons: SUNBURN!

IMG_1668IMG_1647IMG_1699

Sailing: Isla Mujeres Luxury Sailing

Pros: My favorite thing we did on this trip took a boat to the island Isla Mujeres. We got to snorkel in the middle of the ocean before getting to the island. We saw the most beautiful tropical fish and also an underwater museum!  After that, we were given lunch and drinks on the boat before docking and exploring the island. We were given 2 1/2 hours to do our own thing on the island, we rented golf carts and motorbikes and set off to see what this island had to offer. The island was filled with shops, people and street art. After that, we went back on our boat for some swimming, paddle boarding and drinks. On our way back to dock we got to witness the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen so if you do this make sure you get the later time because you won’t regret it!

Cons: It seems like a lot of tourists go here so things can be a little pricey if you want to buy some things at the shops but you can definitely haggle to get a lower price.

Water Park: XEl-HA

Pros: We took an hour and a half car ride to Xel-Há in Riviera Maya to experience a natural water park. They offer so many activities for everyone to do. We snorkeled, swam in caves, cliff jumped and even enjoyed floating around in a lazy river. The food and drinks are also included at this park as well!

Cons:  Its a lot of walking! After lunch, my friends and I had to rest because our feet were hurting from not having water shoes and walking for so long. But they do have hammocks where you can lay out and maybe even take a nap!

Overall I had a great time in Mexico and really enjoyed seeing a new exciting place ❤

Step 2: FOOD!

Trying a new place to eat is always fun and an easy way to enjoy the nice weather.

We deicided to try Sweetgrass Grill which had vegan options as well!

We started with Italian Bread and a White Bean Dip with olive oil and garlic.fullsizeoutput_1081

 For an appetizer, we had the Housemade Hummus
Grilled flatbread, za’atar, fried chickpeas. It was so good, probably my favorite out of everything we ordered!

fullsizeoutput_1082fullsizeoutput_1084

For dinner I had the  Mushroom Melt
grilled portabella, cheddar cheese, caramelized onion, roasted red pepper, sundried tomato!
Chris had the  Sweet Grass-Fed Burger
grilled grass-fed black angus beef, brioche and he added Bacon and Cheddar.

Quick Outfit post:

When I’m lost and I have no idea what to wear I always go with all black and cute shoes. It’s super fast and simple and you can always add a bright lipstick, bag or even shoe to add something to the outfit to make it pop!

fullsizeoutput_108cfullsizeoutput_108e

Step 3: SWEETS ❤

The last step to this date was ice cream because how do you go out in nice weather and not have one!! fullsizeoutput_1090fullsizeoutput_1091
