My 4 Day Stay in Mexico

“Al mal tiempo, buena cara.”
Put a good face to the bad times. Be positive.”

Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking an amazing trip with my friend Ty Alexander of Gorgeous in Grey to Quintana Roo, Mexico with Parlour Magazine for their second #TravelFly Solo Weekend, “a female-focused, self-care inspired travel experience that is dedicated to whatever you wish your getaway to be!” – Parlour

It was midnight when my flight from LAX finally lifted off the tarmac. It was a fairly short flight from Los Angeles to Cancun, probably because I have been anticipating this trip for months. From Cancun, it was a 1-hour drive to our beautiful all-inclusive Riviera Maya hotel the UNICO 20°N 87°W.

UNICO gives guests the feeling of exclusivity and luxury with rich Mexican decor. My room, Alcoba Swim-up Pool, was everything I had imagined for a solo trip. The smallest details added to the earthy and rustic atmosphere that set the tone for my whole trip. After settling in I quickly changed into my swimsuit and headed to one of the three beautiful UNICO pools for some lunch.




Day 1

Wearing: Lane Bryant Bralette (sold out similar here) | Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Skirt | Leather and Raffia Sandals

 




Day 2

Wearing: Eloquii Romper | Packable Straw Hat

I woke up to a warm Mexican sun gently shining through my curtains, perfect for a light breakfast in bed before strolling beach. Relaxing, even on vacations can be hard for me. I’m constantly working on something for the blog, or prepping for an audition, but this time there was no excuse. Mother nature took over with a typical tropical storm, perfect for long naps. I took the time during the storm to head to the spa for UNICO’s “Esencia Signature” massage treatment.

  




Day 3

Wearing: Eloquii Maxi Dress | J.Crew Espadrilles | Instax Camera!

The rain finally stopped which created the perfect weather for heading to Playa del Carmen and do some touristy sight seeing and shopping. The shops at Playa del Carmen have some absolutely beautiful leather working and jewelry.You definitely feel like you’re surrounded by history, as soon as you step out of your cab the sites and smells all boast a flourishing Mexican ambiance.

   




Day 4

Wearing: Grass Fields Maxi 

The last Mexico was bittersweet, it was bright for most of the day with a few scattered showers. That definitely didn’t sour the mood at all because there are so many things to do at the UNICO hotel. Some favorites to keep guests pretty active such as meeting other vacationers, playing pool games and eating at the many restaurants. That night the trip was rounded out with a beautiful dinner at the renowned Gitano Tulum, an amazing mezcal restaurant deep in Tulum’s lush Mexican forest. The menu for the evening was full of flavor, and the drinks were perfectly paired with spices, sweet and sours to fill in the gaps between tapa orders.

Mexico is an amazing location to relax, revitalize, and get some good ole fashioned fun!

    How does the cotton wax feel on the last dress?

      Hi Sarah!

      The cotton on the dress is breezy and light with a slight structured feel to it. The wind flows easily through it but the weaving is thick enough to still feel strong and sturdy (but soft)
