Life update: Celebrating 16 years of marriage || Mexico recap

Hi loves! Today is our last day vacationing in Mexico for our 16th wedding anniversary. Yes! You read that correctly, 16 years! And I could not resist writing a post to commemorate it. It was a fantastic adventure visiting Ensenada & Rosaritos beach but now I’m ready to jump back into reality! The internet has been a little slow lately and it also was a little hard to find the time to write. But back to the tropical bliss.

Friday we zip-lined at Las Cañades Campamento and it was sooo fun! They have 5 different bridges to cross to get to the 5 different ziplines, so its a nice little workout. This was hubby and I’s 2nd time zip-lining as the 1st time we did was in Catalina Island. However it was my dolly’s first time and she thought it was so awesome! After that we went to La Bufadora which is a blow hole tourist attraction right on the peninsula of Baja California. Lastly we ate at a restaurant called Habana Banana which was pretty good. Their micheladas were really good but the best part is you have the option to play with a baby jaguar, lion and tiger. You can also play with the adult jaguar and lion as well as hold a monkey and a huge mcCaw. We did the baby jaguar with my daughter and then just hubby and I played with the adult lion and tiger. My daughter did not meet the height requirement to play with the older cubs.

From Ensenada we drove to Rosaritos which is where our villa was. We stayed at Quinta Pacifica beach front villas. Which were pretty nice. The property was beautiful. My only complaint was that they need to do a better job of up-keeping the building. Since it is beach front the mist and weather can kind of destroy the paint and you could definitely tell there was wear and tear. But lil things like that do not bother me so I enjoyed. We checked in, got settled and enjoyed the rest of the day.

Saturday morning my daughter, mom and niece (via facetime) presented our anniversary presents by showing us a video presentation of them saying the sweetest things and singing. You can view the video Here. I literally cried all my makeup off that I had just put on. I dont know what I did to deserve such sweet souls as kids but I am truly thankful. We got dressed, had breakfast and went to ride horses on the beach and played in the pool at the Rosarito Beach Hotel. We love that hotel. You can hang out by the pool and order drinks which are really, really good. Once we finished there it was time to head back to our villa and get ready for our anniversary dinner. My hubby had his mom drive down from tecaté to be with my daughter while we went and had dinner. We ate at a restaurant called Popotla. It was really good and the mixed drinks were great.

Sunday we drove up to the Rosaritos sand dunes and drove ATVs. That was soo much fun. I almost drove off a cliff and then got stuck in the sand LOL. It was my own fault because I was driving 😂 After, we ate at Villa Ortegas inside Puerto Nuevo (Lobster Town). I had the shrimp scampi and lobster plate and it was PHENOMENAL! We almost did not eat there because the restaurant sits right on top of the water and you literally can smell the fish in the ocean. But we were told once you get your food and start eating your nose focuses on the smell of your food and it is true. Its kind if cool actually how your body tunes into and focuses on what you should be smelling in order to eat. So I’m glad we ended up staying. We headed back to our villa and hung out by the pool and jacuzzi for the rest of the day, until it was dinner time where we cooked and watched a movie via screen projector out on our terrace by the beach. It was soo nice!

Today is Monday and our last day. Its 6AM and im sitting out on the terrace writing this blog. We plan on chilling at the Rosaritos beach hotel pool again and hitting up one of our fave taco spots called Tacos El Yaqui before we leave. The tacos are BOMB!!

This trip was super fun and I’m so proud of hubby and I for celebrating 16 years of marriage! Thank you for allowing me to share and I Hope you enjoyed my lil Mexico recap! Hope you all have an amazing week!!

Recent Amazon purchase for beach vacay || + some travel essentials

I know majority of everyone looooves Amazon!! It is literally the best thing since sliced bread LOL. I recently put in an order for my upcoming trip this Friday and found some really good pieces!! I really love the makeup cases because I have had my old ones for over 10 PLUS years and definitely needed some new ones, So I cant wait to use those. I also got the cutest lil passport cover that comes in a few other colors and I am seriously OBSESSED😍 In addition I got a cute bathing suit, some house slippers and…. well you’ll see haha! 👇🏾

Weekend beach tote

This is a beach bag but, Im definitely gonna use it like a carry all type of bag as well

Spaghetti strap cut out dress

I have seen this dress floating around the internets and thought it would be great for the beach. || Runs tts and is very fitted

Wide brim straw hat

I mean why would I NOT get this hat!! Its sooo chic! Im definitely gonna take some cute pics with this.

Fur slippers

I have a few of these slippers already and they are the most comfortable things plus they come in a million colors so you can match anything.

Passport cover

Ahhh!! See how cute this cover is?!!!! Comes in a few other colors as well and has i.d. And cc slots included. It also comes with a mini pen attached inside which is super adorable & handy!

3-piece makeup bag

Like I said I needed some new makeup cases because my current ones are literally falling apart. I am obsessed with the marble design too!

Large travel makeup bag

This one I got because it has a place to put your brushes and I loved the idea of having that included in the case.

Backless swimsuit

How gorgeous is this swimmie?! Its giving me very Audrey Hepburn vibes and if you know me personally I looove Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffanys! (FUN FACT: That is how my mom picked my name😉)

Straw roll up hat

Everyone needs a hat like this for the spring and summer. It will instantly dress up any outfit and make it causal-chic!

Distressed dad hat

I love a good hat on an actual travel day. 9/10 you will see a hat included in any travel or airport outfit! Its so much easier to throw a hat on when you have an early flight or need to get on the road early. And it really makes it look like you tried.

May Sephora faves || What I’ve been loving

Happy June! We are half way thru the year. That is insane to even say OMG! Nonetheless here we are in another month, so here are last months faves.

1. Hydrating hyaluronic under eye mask

These are soooo good!! I love hyaluronic anything because of its benefits. I tend to dry out under my eyes so these are super moisturizing and they are sparkly so its like a lil party for your eyes😂

2. Bronze eyeshadow palette

Ahhh. I love Natasha Denona! Her products are LEGIT a d she doesn’t disappoint with this palette. I found myself repeatedly wearing the warm browns and oranges because it paired so well with my skin tone. This will definitely be added to My Holy Grail: Makeup Edition

3. Born this way super coverage concealer

Ok can we talk about this concealer! Its so good. It is super full coverage and can me used to bot only conceal but to contour as well. Its also a very hydrating formula so it wont dry you out under your eyes or get cakey. This will be my main concealer for that very reason.

4. Nars lipstick in Belle de jour

I love a natural nude lip look. I saw this on another blogger whose has the same skin tone as me and knew immediately I was going to love it. The formula is very creamy so it isn’t a matte lipstick more so a shiny one and definitely wont leave your lips dry.

6 ingredients you have at home that can be used as a facial to promote healthy skin.

I want to start off by saying Self-care is NOT selfish! I know personally as a mom I need to be the best for my family. Whether you are a mom, wife, girlfriend or significant other. That role requires so much of you as a person to fulfill. Often times our wanting to fill this role successfully and be the best leaves us feeling burnt out and tired. You can really lose yourself if you dont be careful and take time for you.

Think of this as your new motto!! You cant give your best without feeling your best! It starts with YOU! So make sure you do something today that makes you happy💕 I know personally I love giving myself mini facials at home. Regular upkeep of the face promotes healthy blood flow to the skin which keeps your face looking healthy, plump, moisturized and youthful skin. I usually combine my mini facial with a loooong bubble bath and a can of my fave Hey mama wines. Now whether its for 10 min or 35 min (sometimes there really isnt time) I take it and do so regularly for me.. just to sit in quiet and reflect and enjoy.

I cant stress enough how important it is to set aside time for yourself. Self care is not selfish and you can start with a at home facial with ingredients found in your home:

•use coconut oil to take away any makeup, dirt or buildup then wipe away

•use sugar & tea tree oil to exfoliate any dead skin

•use avocado & honey as a facial mask and let sit for 15-30 min (this is where you pour you a glass of wine😉 and relax)

•after rinsing apply olive oil as a moisturizer…..
