Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you guys are having a great weekend so far. With Easter being next week, I wanted to do a round up of some of my favorite dresses, shoes, and purses for the holiday! I love all of the pastel color options available right now, especially on Nordstrom and Revolve. I don’t usually wear heels because I am so tall, so I’ve listed some great flat sandals to wear with dresses, which can also give it a more casual look. If you’re looking for a pastel colored bag for spring, I definitely recommend the blush Rebecca Minkoff bag listed in the bottom right corner. It’s a great color and size….and not to mention it’s on sale! I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!
Happy Friday everyone! I’m SO excited to finally be sharing with you my experience in Cabo San Lucas for spring break!! I went with a few friends and we seriously had the best time.
We stayed at the Cachet Beach Hotel which is about 30-40 minutes away from the airport. The resort is located right on Medano Beach, one of the only swimmable beaches in Cabo San Lucas. The drive there was a lot of fun because we got to see all the new hotels and some of the city. When we arrived, we were greeted by the sweetest staff that took our bags and groceries.
The resort has two pools, one that is super quiet, and the one that is in the middle overlooking the ocean with a bar, music, poolside service, and games! During the day we would begin at the main pool to enjoy the music, food, and drinks! Later on we would work our way over to the smaller pool to catch the last bit of the sun. Below the main pool is the beach filled with comfy cabanas and chairs. Each day we had the option to call and reserve one of them before we walked out there. It was so easy and convenient because when we got there, the cabanas had towels and menus set up and waiting for us! Not to mention the beach/pool menu was amazing. The sushi and tacos were my fave!
Surrounding our hotel was a variety of restaurants, beach clubs, and the marina. One of the nights we walked next door to The Office which is a restaurant on the beach. Our table and chairs were on the sand right next to the shore! It was so much fun because they had a live band and gave us blankets for when it got chilly. I had the best coconut shrimp and the food presentation was amazing!
We also visited Sunset MonaLisa which I talked about in my previous blog post! The food was fantastic and the experience was unforgettable. The restaurant is located about 15 minutes from Medano Beach so it was great to get away to see the full view of the arch at sunset.
On our last day we visited Breathless Resort & Spa, an all-inclusive hotel that offers day passes for the pool and restaurant. The day pass was only $70 which gave us access to the pool from 9-6 pm. The pass was also all-inclusive so we were able to order unlimited food and drinks! It was such a great deal because drinks and food can really add up when you’re laying by the beach or pool. The pool had a live dj, games, pool floats, and a fashion show! My favorite part about it was the view from the infinity pool. It overlooked the water and the arch, and getting to watch the sunset from there was amazing!
Overall, we had the best time and I highly recommend the Cachet Beach hotel! The only thing that I wasn’t a huge fan of was the construction. The hotel is undergoing a lot of construction because they’re adding new towers and a pool. We knew this was going on before booking the trip, but the construction was not loud or anywhere near where we were so it didn’t bother us! Though it was hard to leave such a beautiful place with the best staff… we will definitely be back soon!
Happy Sunday everyone! This past week I’ve been in Cabo San Lucas for spring break and can’t wait to share with you my experience! Next week I will be posting a blog on my entire trip but for today, I wanted to tell you about this amazing restaurant I visited. Before the trip, a friend recommended that I make reservations at Sunset MonaLisa for dinner and it was incredible! The restaurant offers reservations at 5:30 every evening for a sunset dinner overlooking the famous Arch. The dining experience is phenomenal and the views are breathtaking. It makes for the perfect romantic date night!
When you get to the restaurant, they bring out complimentary champagne and bread with the best truffle butter I’ve ever had! For dinner, we tried the Beef Carpaccio, Mushroom Fettuccine, Lamb Shank, and Pollo Orgánico Farcito! Each dish was great but I have to say, my favorite was the appetizers! Once we finished eating, a photographer came up and took our pictures. I highly recommend this place if you’re ever visiting! You won’t be disappointed!
Hey guys! I wanted to post one of my fave meals that I make during the week! I love this recipe because I can make a lot of it and stick it in the freezer. They have a modified version of the recipe that makes it healthier which I love! The best part is the gruyere cheese on top…it’s seriously so good! Give it a try and let me know what you guys think! Have a great Sunday 🙂
