Weekend Getaway: Viva La Mexico!

What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo weekend than in the Country it’s known for?! So we thought. Unfortunately they do not celebrate this American Holiday so my friend and I brought the celebration with us! That’s right……We celebrated in Mexico and WOW was it amazing and beautiful. I always hear about everyone going to Cancun and I’ve seen amazing pictures but I wanted something a little different. So, I called up one of my linesisters and we were on our way to Tulum, Mexico.

I’m going to let the pictures speak for this post but a little back story. I did a little research on my way there due to Tulum being about an hour away taking the cheapest route which was the ADO bus. The total cost in pesos for 2 one way was about 483 pesos. About 12 dollars each. I would recommend the super shuttle for $30. (It’s faster).

We stayed at an all inclusive resort that was absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend staying there and I would stay there again. El Dorado seaside Resorts by Karismo. They had a ton of amenities and their food was amazing! The views were amazing as well!

We had a full list of things for our short time there and made sure to do all of them!

first stop: Tulum Mayan ruins

second stop: Cenotes Casa Tortuga Tulum

of course we had to end with a Photoshoot..

But the most rewarding part was the Massages on the beach! 🤗

Overall, this was by far one of my top 5 places to visit again!

Brunching in NY: Sweet Chick “Chicken and waffles”

Ever just want to travel to a location for the food? That’s exactly how I felt when planning a trip to NY and looking at some of the restaurants in the city. For weeks I have been excited to try the most Delicious-looking desserts and restaurants when a Friend and I decided to plan a trip. I had seen a ton of Instagram posts of these delicious brunch spots but this one in particular got my attention. My favorite brunch meal is Chicken and waffles sooo of course I had to try it!

The vibe was really nice and welcoming. A Rustic cabin look with a Brooklyn feel. Relaxed ambiance feel from the staff and a close seating arrangement. Definitely felt the local vibe of Brooklyn but also broke away from the busy city.

Now to the GOOD STUFF! The presentation of food was definitely a plus. The wait was a little long but it was worth it. The food came out looking delicious and neatly placed on the plate. The music was a bit loud but it was mixed playlist which gave it an upbeat social atmosphere. The drinks weren’t the best but that’s not what it’s known for.

It was on the corner of Bedford which is a great location for it. They had a great coffee shop next door if you wanted to wait until it opened up. A lot of surrounding restaurants and cafes in case you come right when it opens which I would recommend. we showed up at 945am with no line but then went at 1005am and it was completely packed with one table left. Luckily we got it! There was also a line outside. #THEWORST

The food was absolutely amazing! The chicken was extremely good. Plus we got cool stickers and post cards! Definitely recommend it!

NYE 2018: Aruba

Spending New Years in Aruba has by far been one of the best decisions I have made. It was definitely my most expensive trip thus far going at such a high season peak but it was totally worth it. The hotel was one of the best locations I could think of. My friend and I stayed right next to Papimientos restaurant, the #1 restaurant on the Island at Costa Esmeralda Village. It was a great location due to the restaurant having a taxi stand right outside. Not only that but the hotel was only a 10-15 min walk away from the main strip. We stayed on Palm Beach which I would def recommend for anyone who wants amazing food and a never ending night life.

We stayed 4 nights and it went by sooo fast! The first night we got there we went out that night to the famous club everyone recommends. It started off really slow but by the end of the night you could barely walk around without bumping into someone. We left around 2am and was on our way home until we ran into South Beach. I fell in love with this club. It was a nonstop night of dancing in the rain and people having a great time listening to great music. Another great club that I had to go to before I left was the beach party. Luckily New Years fell on a Sunday and that’s the only time the club is popular. We had soooo much fun.

For fun activities I would def recommend ABC Tours and horseback riding. ABC Tours was the best tour guides I have ever had. They had Soo much knowledge on the history of Aruba as well as took us to places that wasn’t even a part of the tour like the California Lighthouse. It was mostly raining but the tour is rain, snow, or shine. But they make it worth it. Also, the horseback riding had the most gorgeous trail and the horses were well trained. The food was amazing and between the shrimp avocado bowl or the red snapper, you will most likely be eating the same meal everyday!

Aruba honestly is the best place to go for an AMAZING fireworks show and beautiful water. It was nonstop fireworks for the entire time we were there but not only that, New Years fireworks show was about a continuous 2 hours long. It was beautiful. Along the island you could see fireworks from every way. One of the best shows I have seen.

Here are a few pics from the trip! Enjoy!

Hope you enjoy!! ❤️

Big 26 in London!

Since moving to Korea I have made a pact to myself to do something big for my birthday. My 25th I spent in Thailand and for my 26th Bday, I was able to spend it in London. I absolutely loved everything about it but most importantly I went for one reason. I am a hugeeeeee Harry Potter Fan. Like a HUGEEEE fan. My close friend was able to meet me there and we had the time of our lives! Here are a few pics to sum up our trip.

Just a few of my favorites: the food, the scenery, the big red buses, the red telephone booths, the people, and the Partying!

This isn’t even half the pics that were taken but all my favorite spots in London! I will definitely have to go back soon! 🙂

#HAPPY TRAVELING!

Riding the Wave!

Not having the ability to travel or go out and view the amazing wonders of the world and just enjoy life has been such a downfall moving back to the states! Every day since moving back I have wished to just pick up and go back to a world that was just so stress-free and pressure-less. The pace of being back has just become so fast and easy to make mistakes. To date faster, love faster, age faster, work faster; yet missing all the signs of if we actually enjoy what we are doing or gaining any results. Living life so fast that we are missing what it’s like to actually live and love and be in tune with oneself. Finding qualities in people and things to understand why you enjoy it in the first place or why you know something is not for your own benefit. After really searching within for the past couple of weeks, Life has taught me to just, 

                    RIDE THE WAVE! 

To literally ride out the waves that I find interest in and not try to move so quickly that the wave engulfs me. To not let the waves I have in my life, whether big or small take advantage of my drive to succeed.  Some of our waves are smaller and it’s simple to ride them out. But for the rest of us, our waves are bigger and stronger that if we are not ready for them, they will wipe us out instantly. If we continue to forget about enjoying the little things and waiting for the next best thing, we will never be satisfied with what we have! Grab your board, pop-up, and take pride in taking the time to understand the wave ahead. #Surfsup! 

    Solo Honeymoon in the Maldives! 


    So I had finally arrived in the Maldives and I had  left one humid place to the next. I arrived later at night so it was pretty dark out but it was humid never the less. I waited about 45 minutes for the speedboat to come and we were literally on water to head to the hotel for a good hour. My recommendation would be if you have motion sickness, you should probably go for the seaplane. It’s a bit on the pricey side but it would probably be worth it.  I got splashed once or twice but considering the fact I love water I was totally okay. I stayed in an All- Inclusive Resort that I would recommend to ANY and EVERYONE! 

    MEERU ISLAND RESORT AND SPA! 

    To sum it all up, The Maldives is nothing short of AMAZING. It was the most at peace place that I have ever been in my life. The atmosphere and vibes from everyone was soo relaxing. (Considering everyone was with their significant other) I was LITERALLY the only solo person there, but the views were something you see on tv. The breeze, music, food, people, everything  had been a dream come true! I’ve never seen water so blue in my life! ❤️ the reflections that I was able to ponder upon being in such a perfect setting encouraged me get so in tune with my thoughts FINALLY! The staff I guess thought it was a great joke to prepare my room for a honeymoon but I can adapt to any situation! 🤗🤗🤗 Here are a few pics of my trip to the Maldives! 



    Hope you enjoyed the Views like I did! Pictures doesn’t  even give it justice you just have to see it for yourself! 😘😘

    New Journey: Traveling Towards my Passion! 

    A year ago I would have never thought I would be where I am today. Starting this travel journey has been absolutely amazing! I have dreamed of traveling to different countries all my life and now that I have gotten the opportunity and have checked off some amazing places off my bucket list, I am overjoyed with happiness. But now I ask myself, What am I doing outside of traveling and posting on social media? Since traveling has been a childhood goal, do I let the rest of my childhood goals fall to the waist side because I completed one? 

    ABSOLUTELY NOT! 

    Yes it’s awesome to have been on this travel journey but there’s so much more that I want to accomplish. It’s great to have been able to go to a new country every month but I also want to further my education. The time has come to where I have to choose. I have to make the decision to pause one to do the other which is why I paused traveling the WORLD and now traveling towards my PASSION. With my backpack full of books on my shoulder and this year long path ahead, I will be more focused on getting A’s on my tests than stamps In my passport. I will be more focused on standing in line for new books than standing in line for security. 


    I am beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to travel but for me, I have to get back focused to the task at hand and that’s pursuing this higher level education! Eventually I’ll be able to get my passport back out and see the world and hope you’ll join me! 

    No worries, I will still be updating on my AMAZING vacation this summer! 🙂 

    Stay tuned and wish me luck! 😘😘
