Mexico 🇲🇽 Monday

Mexico 🇲🇽 Monday

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I'm here to share some of my favorite Mexico places and finds. Almost every year since 2015 I've taken a trip to some part of Mexico, whether its Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Progresso, Cozumel, Yucatán, Isla Mujeres, or Tulum. I enjoy going to Mexico and indulging in their culture. I absolutely love to go to the shops where I find beautiful bright colored paintings, hand stitched clothing, leather goods, and plenty more. Listed below are my go to places and finds.

Isla Mujeres is by far my favorite place at the Mia Reef all inclusive resort click here to take a sneak peek.

This is an overview of the private island called  Mia Reef  on Isla Mujeres, if you are trying to get to this location: Fly into Cancun International and then take a 30 minute boat ride to the island. Then ride a $4 taxi to your destination. Don't worry that little bridge in the photo connects you to an even bigger island with more restaurants bars, dolphin tours, & other private hotels and resorts. We ended up renting a golf cart and a scooter which is really in expensive. There is so much to do on and off the resort. Our room was breath taking, we had a corner room with two balconies one including a hot tub with ocean views.

On the Mia Reef property there is a little gem called the "King's Bath". The Kings Bath is a natural pool made by the ocean's water but sectioned off by the rocks so you can't float away into the ocean. Now if you choose to go over the rocks beware of the deep ocean. There is a stairway that leads you to this beauty and you can see all the pretty colorful fish that come up and pet YOU. Shouldn't we pet the animals??

Leather goods in Mexico are one of their most expensive joys they make. I love their leather goods because it shows their culture. My last trip to Mexico I bought a leather purse with colored flowers for $30. It was marked $45 and I talked them down a little bit. Bargain as much as you can. I decided it would be apart of my summer collection glam with my denim outfits and cute sandals. Take a look below.

My next three finds are very simple but cute & can Glam an outfit. The hat, bracelet and sandals are definitely a favorite. 

My Bracelet is handmade and I absolutely love it, I have at least three different color mixtures. I wear it as a bracelet and as an anklet. Either way it works.   The sandals I'm sure can be found anywhere even in the US its just fun to say I got them in Mexico. These sandals I wear with dresses, jeans and shorts, the deep brown color contrast with a lot, so this is my quick go to sandal. My next want from Mexico, is actual Leather Sandals they make with flower imprints. They look so sleek and glam so my next Mexico vacay mission will be to buy the leather sandals.

My hat is an all time favorite. I bought this hat in Cabo San Lucas and it had a scarf that said Cabo on it. The great thing about this hat beside a good sun blocker is, you can add color string, ribbons, or scarves to make the hat work with any summer or fall look. I have different scarves to wrap around and tie to it. Love this hat.

Lastly, I call this my Color Cargo Bag that I bought in Progresso Mexico! This bag holds a lot including my full sized iPad. The bag is stitched. I typically wear this bag with denim or anything white because the colors are so loud and vibrant already. Glam up with this Mexico find all year.
