Overnight Getaway – Be Right Back!

Happy almost Friday my kitty-cats!

I am headed to the Pala Casino Resort & Spa today for an overnight getaway. I’m super excited and cannot wait, because a little R&R is definitely in order.

To find out what I’ll be doing there during my stay, follow along on Instagram @melrodstyle, and Snapchat (username: melrod1206), where I’ll be sharing all the behind the scenes, fun activities, and so much more.

BRUNCH SO HARD, MIMOSAS WANNA FIND ME

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, I am invited to many events throughout the week, and while they are all so much fun, my favorite events are the ones that involve food… don’t judge me. If there’s an event with food, I’m totally there. You can find me chasing the waiter around with the platter of hors d’oeuvres. To be honest, my favorite influencer events are the brunch ones (hashtag sorry not sorry). So naturally, when I was invited for a tasting at the Sapphire Pantry in Laguna Beach, there was no hesitation. I was definitely attending!

If you follow me on Instagram @melrodstyle,  then you might’ve seen on my stories all the food we were able to taste. Sadly, I didn’t get to take photos of every dish (hence why I am not a food blogger), because my belly could not wait #STORYOFMYLIFE, but we had the following from their breakfast menu: OATMEAL, TRADITIONAL SANDWICH (hickory smoked turkey, scrambled egg whites, tomato, whole wheat bread), BREAKFAST TACO, BREAKFAST BURRITO, BUTTERMILK PANCAKES, PB & J FRENCH TOAST (ahhh insert drooling emoji here), SMOKED SALMON SANDWICH, and so much more. Just thinking about all the food we I devoured is putting me back into a serious food coma.

 

If you are ever in the area or are planning to visit Laguna beach, I highly recommend giving them a visit because their food is incredible, and their staff and manager were the friendliest.

Allure Blow Bar

 

I don’t know what person doesn’t love a good hair day. That feeling you get after a good blow out is EVERYTHING.  Am I right, ladies? Gents?

The lovely ladies of Allure Blow Bar invited me into their beautiful salon for a complimentary blow out. Ummm yessss girllll!  So naturally I brought my sister Jojo (she’s like my right hand these days).

As soon as we arrived, we were greeted with mimosas. Every girl deserves to be pampered once in a while so this was very much needed.  After our hair was looking oh-so-fab, we had a little photoshoot sesh (duh!).

What an incredible day it was! Thank you to the amazing team at Allure Blow Bar for pampering us and making us look fabulous.

If you are ever in the area or looking to get your hair done, then definitely check them out. The place is beautiful, the staff is super friendly, and my hair looked ah-mazing! Linking everything down below.

I’m an LA girl, and although I’ve called LA my home since I could remember, there is so much to see, places to visit, food & drinks to enjoy that I still have yet to visit… you name it! So when Farfetch invited me to join them on an LA adventure, I couldn’t resist.

FIRST STOP

There were three blogger groups. My group met at the cutest most chic boutique: Loit, where we received a Farfetch gift, and had an on-site photographer for the entire day. Hashtag YASSS!

Puerto Vallarta Diary – part 2

Puerto Vallarta Diary, travel, trip, mexico, puerto vallarta, blog, fashion, lifestyle, melrodstyle, vacation, travel blogger, casa kimberly, el malecon, beach, playa, international, la blogger, latina blogger,

It’s clearly no surprise that Mexico has won my heart the past month or two. I’ve traveled to Mexico in the last couples of weeks more times than I have EVER. Don’t believe me? Click here, here, here… oh and here.

So when I had the opportunity to visit Puerto Vallarta (for the 2nd time in a month by the way), I instantly jumped at the thought. I practically already had my bags packed, totally kidding… kinda.

We stayed in the most charming, romantic, breathtaking, jaw-dropping… you name it. I can literally keep going… boutique hotel – Casa Kimberly. And when I mean charming and romantic, you would think Enocha and I were on our honeymoon. No, but in all seriousness, Casa Kimberly is the perfect place to stay for a quick romantic getaway, but also great for a girl’s trip. I wish I knew about this hotel before because George and I would’ve stayed here for our honeymoon in a heart beat. Not to mention, the food, the service and every detail of this place was just so spot on and amazing. Just talking about it makes me miss this place so much (insert crying emoji here).

Besides the GORGEOUS hotel, everything around the hotel was walking distance to the main spots in town. We were just a few blocks away from El Malecon and the beach… can it get any better than that?!

As you know, I was recently in Puerto Vallarta for the second time this month… I know what you’re thinking. 

I’m so happy I was able to partner with Primark during my trip because whenever I’m traveling somewhere warmer, I like to pack light and find ways to wear same items more than once. Having Primark in Puerto Vallarta made my trip/life a whole lot easier than usual, because I was able to wear some of these items more than once.

I love when you can use a one-piece bathing suit as a bodysuit under a pair of denim shorts.

If you’re not familiar with Primark, then get to know them because they have the cutest stuff: from babe-worthy beach buys to street style wear. The best part is that their items are not only trendy, but they’re super affordable, too! Major WINNING!

Cancun

Cancun, you took my breath away.

For those who have never been to Cancun, I would definitely recommend visiting. The first time I visited Cancun was when I was a baby, so obviously I wasn’t able to appreciate it.

This time around we took a family trip, which was amazing! It’s always nice spending time with family, especially with my nieces. We stayed at the Oasis Resort, which is perfect for a family trip. If you’re not traveling with kids or family, I would suggest to stay somewhere else because this resort was very kid friendly. Nothing wrong with that but if that’s not your cup of tea, then definitely would suggest to stay at a different hotel.

Day 1: Straight from the plane, we went to the beautiful Isla Mujeres, where we took a boat ride around the island and into town to have lunch. We then went snorkeling and my nieces were able to swim with sharks (I was terrified to be honest).

Day 2: We spent the entire day at Xcaret, which was incredible. We visited the Xcaret park, where we saw flamingos, parrots, baby quails, fish of all kind, turtles, you name it. We had lunch right by the beach, then ended the night watching one of their amazing shows. Long day but so worth it.

Day 3: Our third day was very relaxing. We decided to just hang by the pool and beach. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it to Chichen Itza (original plans for day 3) because day 2 really wore us all out. So having a more chill day was definitely in order.

It was a very fun and very short trip for both George and I, but it was totally worth it.

If you follow me on Instagram (@melrodstyle), you know that George and I recently celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary in Puerto Vallarta. It was so much fun. We were able to celebrate with some of our dearest friends.

Our days were spent hanging by the pool, relaxing by the beach, enjoying cocktails after cocktails after cocktails… oh, and did I mention cocktails?! 😉 We had the best food, too by the way. Still thinking about that ceviche… mouthwatering.

We also got to go on a fun excursion and ride the razors around town, followed by a quick dip at a waterfall that lead to a river, and a tequila tasting.

 

I’ve listed the hotel information we stayed in below.

Hotel CasaMagna Marriott Resort & Spa

Although we didn’t get to do many excursions other than the RTV tour, I definitely do recommend the following that George and I did last year…

Horseback riding

Snorkeling

Packing Tips for a Summer Getaway

Packing Tips for a Summer Getaway, packing tips, what to pack, essential, getaway, vacation, trips, travel, travel blogger, melrodstyle, luggage, pack like a pro, what to bring, summer, vacay,

 

As I am just a few hours away from taking off to Puerto Vallarta, still not packed not even a little bit. DON’T PANIC., decided I’d share what I usually pack when I’m headed somewhere warmer.

Packing Tips for a Summer Getaway.

Here are a just a few tips of what I like to pack…

  • I always try on every single piece of item that I plan to bring with me. Trust me, this prevents from over packing. So much easier and less stressful.
  • Pack basics white and black tees and tank tops. These are perfect for day to night outfits, and they make great layering pieces.
  • Pack a few sandals and one pair of sneakers. You really only need 2-3 pairs of shoes plus a pair of flip flops. Honestly, I never pack heels anymore because I noticed every time I do bring heels with me, I never end up wearing them. Lesson learned.
  • Swimsuits, obvi. I always like to bring one for each day. I like to pack one-piece swimsuits as well because you can use them as tops paired with shorts.
  • At last three pairs of shorts and one denim skirt. These double as swimsuit cover ups, too.
  • Pack 1-2 maxi dresses. Dresses are always a must because they’re perfect for either day time or night time.
  • One to two pairs of sunglasses. I always pack cheapy sunnies, just in case they get lost.
  • Bring at least one statement piece of jewelry. For me, I’m really into earrings so I’m definitely packing statement earrings and dainty layered necklaces.
  • If you’re married, I suggest leaving your wedding rings at home. Both George and I never travel anywhere internationally with our rings. You just never know if they get lost or stolen.
  • Pack your beauty products in one bag away from any of your tech accessories, such as chargers, batteries, camera, etc…
  • Don’t forget hair ties and bobby pins, especially if you’re planning to travel somewhere humid.
  • Bring dry shampoo, and anything you need to protect your hair from the heat. HOT MESS HAIR, I DO CARE.
  • Don’t forget sunscreen.
  • Pack little to no makeup. I never pack a lot of makeup because I don’t like to wear makeup while I’m out laying by the pool or the beach. I keep it very minimal. Instead, I pack a tinted moisturizer, anything that already has sunscreen. Pack at least one neutral and one pop of color lipstick, and bring a bronzer.
  • Either carry your hat(s) with you on the plane or pack upside down in your suitcase. Fill it up with either swimsuits, undergarments or socks, and fold/roll your clothes and pack around your hat to secure your hat from moving or bending around. This will help from damaging your hats.
  • Bring a tote bag to serve as a carry-on. It’ll double as a beach bag as well. Also, you really only need one day bag (cross body or backpack) and one clutch for the evening.
  • Pack neutral color clothing. If you want to add a pop of color to your outfits, accessories and shoes are always the way to go. My go-to colors are always neutrals, but I like playing with colors with my shoes and jewelry.

I hope these packing tips are helpful!

Happy traveling, and happy Cinco de Mayo!
