TRAVELING TO MEXICO: CANCUN, TULUM, PLAYA DEL CARMEN

Got the travel bug and decided to ditch my day job (and the abysmal winter weather) and  head to CANCUN for a week. A decision that I’m glad I made because it made for a memorable trip with my  sister aka my partner in crime. Now we didn’t spring for the the best all-inclusive resorts in Cancun because let’s be realistic…everyone has to live on some kind of budget. We instead decided to stay at a beautiful little 3 star hotel near the water front. Our room came with a balcony which gave the most perfect view of the sunset.

Here are some of our adventures in this little paradise tucked away in Quintana Roo, Mexico. Check out the best places to visit in Mexico.

CANCUN, MEXICO

We started our trip in Cancun a city on the Yucatán Peninsula bordering the Caribbean Sea.

TULUM and CENOTE, MEXICO

After a few days de-stressing away from the frigid winter weather we traveled from Cancun to Tulum, Mexico.

There we signed up for the Tulum Cenote Tour with EKNX Tours. The package came with a tour in the archeological site of the Mayan Ruins in Tulum, a swim in the Cenote and shopping in downtown Playa Del Carmen Mexico.

Some other activities worth looking into is ziplining, ATV-ing around some trails, renting a boat for a sea getaway or jet skiing is always a favorite. The goal was exploration and adventure and I think we managed to do just that.

How would you spend a quick getaway to another country? Exploring or being leisurely? Check out some more things to do in Cancun.

42 Cartoons 90s Kids Watched Growing Up

Being a 90’s kid was the best mainly because of all the cool cartoons that aired on Disney, Nickelodeon and CartoonNetwork. I still remember waking up early on Saturday mornings or coming home after school to catch all the newest episodes.

There are so many good ones to pick from but I’ve highlighted 42 cartoons that 90’s kids watched growing up, some of which are favorites I remember watching as a kid.

Feel free to share your favorites in the comments.

What to Watch: The End of the F**king World ( A Netflix Original)

Cue one thrill seeking teenager, a self-confessed wannabe psychopathic murderer and a series of absurd experiences building up to an existential crisis and you have Netflix’s original series THE END OF THE F**KING WORLD. Weird right? Well not really, at the core of it, this dark comedy series is a bildungsroman in all its carpe-diem glory or in other words, YOLO!

What to Watch: Dark: Season One (A Netflix Original)

Arguably, Netflix originals are some of the best content to watch. For me, not having the same stories retold over and over with different actors like the Hollywood reboot machine likes to churn out is a refreshing breeze.DARK Netflix original - The Millennial Exclusive

 

Unashamedly, over the last week one series that gripped me was, DARK. This time traveling existential series had me glued to my bed (I watch in bed) reaching for the endless array of snacks set out before me. The series can only be described as a mindf**k  as story lines from the present, past and future seamlessly intertwine leaving you guessing about the true origins of the characters and what the number 33 means in your own personal life.

My Goals for my Blog

My Reality TV Guilty Pleasures

Reality TV is entertaining, passes the time and is often times juicy and funny as hell. Now the kind that I like are laced with drama, bursting with life-ruining mayhem and lots and lots of betrayals (yes I know I’m sick but [Tyra voice] you don’t know me!) Anyways, these 3 shows are essential to my late night wind-down and each episode cannot be missed. Don’t judge me. Continue reading My Reality TV Guilty Pleasures

How To: Stay Fit during the Holiday Season

The end of the year doesn’t only bring changing leaves and the first snow fall. First comes October and the Halloween parties, then November and the Thanksgiving induced comas. Next is December’s Christmas parties and festivities, concluding with New Year’s in the biggest blow out yet.

What do all these seasonal events have in common? They involve, in many instances, unhealthy, gluttonous eating and drinking (at least in my life). If you’re like me, you can probably name 100 other things you can be doing rather than working out (I mean working out hurts right?) So, to save us all from the same New Year’s resolution of “getting in shape”, here’s how I stay fit during the holiday season (and all year long really) Continue reading How To: Stay Fit during the Holiday Season

Here’s How I Knew I Wanted Out Of My Relationship

We met online on a popular dating app, the same way many millennials now date. It was in February when we had our first date. I remember the snow fall had created the perfect winter wonderland. We had sushi at a nearby Hibachi restaurant with endless conversation and shared interests. There weren’t any awkward pauses or inappropriate comments/behavior. We ended up staying until the restaurant was closing. Against my general rule of not kissing on the first date, I kissed him goodnight.
