Cabo Travel Diary

cabo finallll3

I know I promised a Cabo travel diary a month ago after I got back, but things got so hectic that I’m just now getting around to it! But better late than never, right? Honestly, we didn’t get to explore as much on this trip because David was here for work. I was out tanning by the pool all day πŸ˜‰

We stayed at Riu Palace. Since it was an all-inclusive hotel, we spent a lot of our time there eating. I mean, who can say no to unlimited food all day everyday? The food wasn’t exceptional but was still satisfying; it’s like what you’d expect from a typical buffet. I particularly enjoyed their steak and mashed potatoes (I know, typical Mexican food… LOL!). For dessert, the fondue machine was my greatest weakness. Seriously, half my diet on this trip was white chocolate covered strawberries! David enjoyed the unlimited booze, while I sipped on my *virgin* fruit punch which we mistook as a sunrise mimosa at first because it looked exactly like one.

On David’s time off, we were able to grab some shots of our own, and it was a true delight to be so close to the beach one last time before officially settling into Palm Springs when we got back. Weather was great — not too hot and not too cold… but definitely warm enough to hang out in a bikini and get at least 2 shades darker in the course of the week. Thank goodness for tanning because I hadn’t really worked out consistently all year leading up to Cabo. Is it just me or does darker skin help make a person look more toned? I’m so convinced it does! Now that we’re back in Palm Springs, we joined a gym and I’m getting back in the groove of my fitness routine… and naturally tanning everyday under the harsh desert sun (LOL)!

Wearing: Bikini Top – H&M (several years old but I’m loving this ruffle wrap bikini top that would look great with strappy bikini bottoms), Bikini Bottom – Victoria’s Secret (sold out, but similar here)

Wearing: Pineapple One-Piece – Forever 21 (sold out, but similar style available here in pink; there is no print but I loooove the low plunge), Distressed Denim Shorts – Forever 21 (sold out but available in white and I have it too!)

Wearing: Pineapple One-Piece – Forever 21 (sold out, but similar style available here in pink; there is no print but I loooove the low plunge), Distressed Denim Shorts – Forever 21 (sold out but available in white and I have it too!), Lace Sheer Cover-Up – Canyon Child (two seasons ago, but similar style here)

Traveling can be quite stressful with 3 pets at home (they’re practically kids)! But now that we’re settled in, we’re hoping for another fun getaway soon. Maybe Italy, maybe Greece… I’m dying to check out Europe and Australia too. I definitely want to make it a mission to travel more before I turn 30. There are still so many places in the world I have yet to see!

What’s your next travel destination?

  4. These photos are absolutely magical – of course I expected nothing less coming from you and David. All my blogger friends are posting photos of their beach getaways, and I’m just here dying to go somewhere warm and tropical soon! I hope I get the chance to enjoy something like this before summer ends! I love your swimsuits, especially that palm print one piece. So cute! Sounds like you had an amazing experience!

    1. Aw thanks Stephanie! I’m dying to go back to somewhere tropical too because it’s starting to really heat up in the desert here! But I guess I can’t complain because I still have the pool πŸ™‚ haha!

  5. I was so envious of all your vacay pics you posted while in Cabo. What a beautiful place to take photos too. Such a perfect vacay spot and I need this amazing tan you got! Girl, you don’t need to hit the gym your body is killer! Love all the swimsuits you brought along and your tropical vacay looks. What a great vacay even though David had to work. =). I’m headed to Vancouver and Seattle in June (definitely not tropical) but that’s fine because I am not in any beach body shape right now. Hehe. xoxo, Christine

  7. These photos are so gorgeous! You are stunning babe! What a beautiful place! Sounds like the perfect vacay!

  8. I haven’t been to Cabo yet! I recently returned from a tour of Texas but I’m not too sure about what my next travel destination is. I miss travel immensely but I think it’ll be somewhere in Central America. I am attempting to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday.

    1. Helen! I was just thinking about visiting Sydney pretty soon and am keeping a close eye on flight deals! I’ve been telling my bf I want to visit you! Haha. Thanks babe, I hope you enjoy your vacation to Europe with your man! Can’t wait to hear all about your adventures xoxo

  9. Cabo is a country I’ve always wanted to visit! It’s great you were able to still enjoy the time you had there and take some gorgeous shots. Kudos to you both joining a gym, though you don’t need it, it’s still important to keep up our bodies πŸ™‚

  11. Ahhh these photos came out so good!! For someone who hasn’t worked out consistently, you still look amazing!!! And yes I think tanning definitely helps you look more toned πŸ™‚ I would love to visit Cabo someday! But I really want my next travel destination to be Japan!

    With love, Jenn

  12. I think that’s the perfect relationship you and David have, I mean, he works and you tan by the pool, haha. Jk, I’m glad you got a getaway before your move. I sure could have needed one too figuring how much is involved in a move and I actually just booked a late summer vacay to Mykonos in Greece so meet you up there babes! Haha. And you know you’re always welcome to Stockholm! And yes, I do agree with the fact that a body looks more toned with a tan, which reminds me, I need to get one…
    Thanks for sharing some lovely vacay pics and reading!
    xoxo

If I can find a good deal on a flight there in the summer we should totally meet up πŸ˜‰ lol! I would love to meet you in Stockholm too! Take me around please πŸ™‚ hehe

    1. Aww thanks Jessie but your body is already goals LOL what are you talking about! Haha! I really don’t have any workout routine really other than taking some fitness classes and using the ab crunch machine (LOL). Little booty could use some work next πŸ˜‰ I think you’d really love Cabo!

    1. Awww thanks Kyla! You’d love it in Cabo though I’m a bit surprised you haven’t been yet since you’re quite the traveler haha! Was definitely paradise πŸ™‚

  19. Stunning photos! I have always wanted to travel to Cabo. I have heard great things. I am so jealous you have been slacking at the gym and look that amazing! Your outfits are soooo cute, and that sounds sooo relaxing. I love work trips, it’s all play for us and they have to work. It makes it more relaxing for me πŸ˜‰ hahah

  20. Ummm…where does all that food go? You must have the metabolism of a cheetah. And your boyfriend gets to go to Cabo for work? Please ask him if he needs an intern haha. Looks like a fabulous getaway and these shots are unreal. Really talented – the both of you!
