In Love with The Beloved

5/20/2014
Over the Canadian long weekend, I was lucky enough to jet off to Cancun, Mexico for 4 days. Now on a rainy Tuesday back home, 5 pounds heavier full of guacamole in Canada, I'm day dreaming about being back there.

We stayed at The Beloved Hotel, a luxury boutique four diamond hotel in Playa Mujeres. Our resort was quite a way from the main party buzz of Cancun, and being not much of a party animal, that's just how I like it. The Beloved Hotel is absolutely the most luxurious place I have ever stayed at, and especially considering it was an all-inclusive resort, I've never felt so pampered in my life.


Private casitas (get their own private pool)



Bvlgari products. Still don't know how to pronounce the designer but I know I'm keeping these!

This rainfall shower alone was my personal heaven. PLUS you can watch the flatscreen TV while showering.

This in-room jacuzzi tub overlooks the resort and ocean. AMAZING.

While some people would die over the selection of unlimited booze, I died over unlimited Snickers

Our terrace suite had its own private balcony pool



It's all about these little touches





Snorkelling in Isla Mujeres



Love the ambiance of this lounge. Complete with live music and a sushi/ceviche bar



The beach in Isla Mujeres

Bliss





A goodbye treat from the staff: chocolate almond truffles and strawberry tea


Spoiled silly right?? A LITTLE better than the typical Canadian Muskoka long weekend getaway, if you ask me. I hope you all had an amazing weekend as well. It's starting to feel a lot like summer around here, so maybe I should go work off that guacamole now. Have a great week!

Love,

MAC

The Badlands

5/15/2014
I hate to complain, but where I'm from in the suburbs of Toronto, there is not a whole lot to look at. Lots of man-made developments, big box buildings, and just a whole lot of uninspiring views. Compared to my recent posts from the nonstop gorgeous views of California, even taking photos back home seemed like it would never live up.

And although it still doesn't, over the weekend I finally drove out of suburbia to a place I've been meaning to visit for awhile now. Out in Caledon, Ontario, there's a small stretch of rolling red dirt hills called the Cheltenham Badlands. The landscape comes out of absolutely no where, but it's a pretty neat place to explore (and makes for some great shots!)





I'm literally obsessed with this necklace by the way. You might have seen it already in Coachella snaps but it's so killer, prepare to see a lot more of it. I also LOVE my new gladiator sandals by Fergalicious. I've been on the hunt for knee-high gladiators (at a decent price point) for some time now, and I fell in love with there.





It's coming up to the (Canadian) May "Two-Four" long weekend and I'm SO excited. We've planned a little getaway somewhere with guaranteed beautiful views and sunshine. Wherever you are, get out there and explore, it's getting nice out! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

May Flowers and Monograms

Wishing all the baby mamas (and baby mamas' mamas) out there a wonderful Mother's Day! And such a beautiful day it was, FINALLY in the Toronto area it's feeling like summer isn't too far away.









To continue my obsession with summer rompers and playsuits, I spotted this floral envelope skort romper and fell in love. In the never-ending winter months I definitely stick to neutral, boring colours, mostly black and various shades of grey. When summer weather hits, give me the brightest pieces and I'll wear them!

Accessory-wise, I tend to stray towards gold jewelry, and especially anything unique. I discovered this gold monogram bracelet by 9th and Elm, and was blown away by how beautiful yet affordable it was. 9th and Elm specializes in independent and handmade designs. I HIGHLY recommend you check them out. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend with your moms!
