Travel Diaries: Cancun, Mexico


Hello everyone! I hope all of you enjoyed your Christmas holiday and were able to spend time with your loved ones. My Christmas holiday was spent making Christmas cookies, spending time with my family and stuffing my face with food. Pretty good way to spend Christmas if you ask me!

Now, some of you may know that I had recently made a trip to Cancun, Mexico last week. The trip was part of my Christmas present from my parents and I could not be more grateful for them! Today I am sharing some photos and highlights from my trip, enjoy!
The Christmas tree in the front lobby! It was hard getting into the Christmas spirit in 85 degree weather, but the Christmas tree did help. Also side note, I have always loved white Christmas trees so I was happy to see that the one in our lobby was white!
My dad and I woke up early every morning and walked the beach while my brother and mom were still asleep. This was such an awesome way to start our day and I'm glad I got to have some bonding time with my dad!

It was about 85 degrees the whole time we were there! It was great! Here's a shot of one of the pools that overlooked the beach. It was so relaxing laying on the pool chairs looking at the beautiful view!
 Drinking fruity drinks all day long!

I managed to snag this gorgeous cover up at the flee market at Cancun! I loved the colors and even my mom said that this cover up looked like me!

Me with my wonderful mother!

There was so much food at the resort we stayed at so my itinerary mainly consisted of eating, laying on the beach, eating, and sleeping. Perfect itinerary, right? I justified eating this donut by drinking a glass of green juice with it. Balance, right? 


My brother and I out venturing Cancun's flee markets!

Here's the view from our balcony! I tried so hard to get a photo of a seagull flying over the ocean, but this is the best one I managed to get after my many failed attempts.

I hope you all enjoyed seeing some highlights of my trip. We were only there for a few days, but it was still a very relaxing few days! Have you been to Cancun? Let me know i the comments down below! Have a great day!

    1. I feel like I am coming to the age where I would rather have memories rather than "stuff" as gifts. Memories are so much more valuable to me than material items!
