HomeinspirationPLAYA DEL CARMEN


Over the Christmas and New Year holidays I was lucky enough to be on the beautiful beach in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico with my family.

Playa Del Carmen Feature We all need to get away once in awhile and if you ever get the chance to go I highly recommend the Mayan Riviera. We stayed in Playa Del Carmen and it was beautiful, however if you’re looking to really get away, I recommend Tulum. I seriously fell in love with Tulum, I will be going back as soon as I can.


Here’s the requisite photo from the plane flying into Cancun.

I literally had no internet for 11 days, it took some getting used to but after awhile you realize how nice it can be to disconnect.

So now I’m back to reality, thank you for looking at my photos and checking out my blog. It’s a new year and back to work and DIYing. I have some great DIY’s lined up so stay tuned.
