HACIENDA DE CORTES //

Wednesday, 25 November 2015


















Playsuit: MACCS | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Shoes: Windsor Smithsimilar | Bag: MACCS

I first visited the Hacienda De Cortes on my first trip to Cuernavaca in 2009 - I immediately fell in love and actually thought I would have my wedding here. From the sugar cane era, this gorgeous spot has since been renovated into a beautiful hotel, restaurant, and spa. The courtyard features lush greenery and gorgeous blooms - perfect for strolling through and taking in the fresh atmosphere. The restaurant is one of my favourite spots, it showcases stunning rustic chandeliers, an open concept, and tree trunks and vines crawling throughout, the food isn't that great so I would suggest simply stopping in for a drink or a visit to their spa and pools. This is probably my number one stop in all of Cuernavaca.

CARRY ON ESSENTIALS //

Monday, 23 November 2015







Carry on: Sole Society, the bigger version is also on SALE HERE | Espadrilles: Soludos | Panama Hat: JCrew | Sunnies: MACCS | Scarf: Target | Eye Cream: Origins 

There's nothing quite like jet setting off on a new and exciting adventure. This past Wednesday Danny and I left for his home town of Cuernavaca, Mexico to visit friends and family and to show my Mom who joined the fun this beautiful city. I think one of the most important things while travelling is packing the essentials and knowing how to stay comfortable on those long flights. Among other small necessities such as lip balm. hand sanitizer, gum, and tylenol, these are my carry on essentials for flying comfortably and looking fresh strutting to baggage claim.

Cardi: MACCS | Tee: H&M | Leggings: Nordstrom Boots: Ted & Muffy | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Toque: old, similar | Sunnies: Rayban | Bracelets: Balsam & Vine

Have I mentioned yet that these boots are my fav?! Seriously in love! When I first got them I was actually kind of stumped as to how I could wear them but I've successfully rocked them every other day (yay for pinterest outfit ideas!) Also this new cardi from MACCS is what's keeping me cozy and chic on these crisp Vancouver days.
