Cabo Travel Diary

Posted on 3 m read

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,Β 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 mistookΒ as a sunrise mimosa at first because it looked exactly like one.

On David’s timeΒ off, we were able to grab some shots of our own, and it was a true delight to beΒ 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 skinΒ 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 underΒ the harsh desert sun (LOL)!

Wearing: Bikini Top – H&M (several years old but I’m loving this ruffle wrapΒ 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!)

Pinit

Wearing: Romper – k/lab style at Kohl’s (just sold out shortly after my blog post went live, but I really love this oneΒ in a similar style too!)

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?

    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!

      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!

    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

    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!
