Twirling in Tulum


Happy Monday you guys!! If you follow me on Instagram then you may already know that I was in Tulum, Mexico last week. My mom and I went a couple of years ago but didn’t get to explore very much, so I was excited to go back and see more of Tulum – for being in the middle of the jungle, it has changed and grown a lot in just two years. There are tons of restaurants now and it was surprisingly pretty crowded everywhere we went! This particular day I wore this cute ruffle dress for heading out to find lunch. We were in search of a restaurant called Raw Love, an outdoor restaurant with the BEST açai bowls! On the way to the restaurant we stumbled upon the cutest resort with lots of quaint little huts on the beach (where all of these pictures were taken). The name of the hotel is Ahau Tulum if you’re interested – I personally didn’t stay there so I can’t review it, but it was certainly cute and had a beautiful beach!

The sunny weather in Mexico was such a nice reprieve from the freezing temperatures in Charlotte – I tried to soak in as much vitamin D as possible while I was there! If you missed it, I wrote a blog post last week about how I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) during the winter. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the positive comments you left on that post – many of you struggle with SAD as well, and it was really nice to know that there are so many of us in the same boat. Quite a few of you guys recommended sitting in front of a light box in the morning, so I ordered this one off of Amazon. I’ll keep you guys updated on how it works!


P.S. Let me know if you’d like a full travel guide to Tulum!

    Pretty bummed that the purse is from a local boutique in Tulum, I’m going to go on a hunt and look for a similar bag in the meantime!
