Last Sunrise in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Last Sunrise in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I can’t believe our getaway to Mexico has ended. This was our last morning before heading back to Toronto later that night and it was the best Sunrise of them all.

This trip has been very inspiring and I couldn’t be happier. 2016 has been a very challenging year for me. I’m still adjusting to the North American way of life. I miss the tropics (Philippines) and my family in England. I was always been brought up the Filipino-British way. If you’re from Europe or Asia or from a mix family tradition you know what I’m talking about.

Moving on, The blog is probably the most challenging part of 2016. I used to admire blogs and thought it was easy. NOPE! It’s been hard, I think it has something to do with me being a perfectionist. I wanted to make everything look amazing right away, It does take time. Success takes time and relationship takes time too.

If anyone of you feeling the heavy burden of 2016, don’t be! Life gets better each year. I also have so many things planning up this year for the blog! I can’t wait to share them all with you

Going back to my story, We woke up around 7 am for an early breakfast and watch our last Sunrise in the Island.

This time the sky was so orange and blue.

And no I didn’t manipulate these photos at all.

Also I can’t help to adore this watch from Daniel Wellington.

I’m also wearing this gorgeous dress from Zaful. It is very identical to the Self Portrait Red dress but 1/4 of the price. I’m so in love with it. Zaful delivers within 3 weeks period of time upon ordering but their products are very gorgeous and I love them. I would definitely order more of this kind of dresses. you can get the dress HERE

After breakfast and sunrise watching we started walking around outside the hotel to find some last minute trinkets we can bring back home.

I’ll definitely miss seeing this Bougainvillea around.

Afterwards we headed back to the hotel to have our last lunch. It’s more like of a snack as they don’t serve lunch till 2pm and I just find that super late! I have lunch at 12pm. hahaha

After that we hit the beach one last time. I feel like we’ve only been on the beach twice and I didn’t even get to work on my tan.

This swimsuit is another one from Zaful and its under $20! you can get it HERE

At 3 pm we headed back to our hotel, Packed our bags and headed back to snowy Toronto. I can’t wait to be back to Paradise after few months! Tho I’m excited to do some adventures with the snow.

    This looks absolutely adorable and I’m glad you got to spend the last day with such beautiful vews!
    But GIRL do I hear you on that “oh I thought blogging was easy”. I don’t think I’ve ever worked this much in my life as I do now, but you tell me it’s gonna be easier so I’ll just have to take your word for it! 🙂

    OMG the tropical sunset photos are soo beautiful babe. I seriously need to travel to Mexico some day. I agree that building a blog is hard and definitely takes time. I’m a perfectionist as well and I’m constantly always critiquing myself on what I can do better.

    Can I just have your wardrobe? I love the red dress and the palm tree swim suit! Super cute! Looks like you had such a blast!

    Blogging is so hard and I can totally relate. I want things a certain way, but it’s difficult to just do myself without a web designer. 🙁

    Girl I know what you mean!! Before blogging I thought, hey this is going to be so easy – all I gotta do is write a few words and BAM. But turns out it takes so long to write and edit, and that’s if I even find inspiration for something to write about! You definitely have your blog SUPER set because you put out amazing content consistently and your theme is SO on point! Definitely need advice for my own site haha.
    And also your trip from Mexico looks AMAZING. I never been there before but your gorgeous sunset photos are tempting me!! Must be so sad that you have to come back to Toronto where its still snowing sigh!
    Lastly LOVE that DW watch! I’m waiting for mines to come in but I don’t think mines come with the Cuff.

    Wow!! Once again, impressed beyond words! First of all, I am from a European family and was raised a certain way that makes it hard even now to adjust to the “North American” ways. I’m right with you on the blogging. I feel my writing and ideas have gotten better but do not even know where to start when it comes to reformating or redesigning. I absolutely love the red lace Zaful dress and also the bathing suit. The scenery is truly magnificent!

  20. January 27, 2017 / 5:05 pm

    How wonderful photos and I loved your pictures, they are so stunning! Your man is so talented! Red dress is def favorite

  21. January 29, 2017 / 7:59 pm

    Hi baby, this post is so perfect!! Can’t get enough of the sunset photos!!! Also, your Zaful dress is simply gorgeous!!
    Wishing you and the blog the very best this 2017!!!

  22. January 30, 2017 / 1:26 pm

    Hope you had a nice trip back. I have to say I am blow away by these gorgeous photos! You look absolutely stunning in that red dress and I cannot believe it’s from Zaful! Amazing look and post! Hope you are having a great start to the week!

    I love your beautiful red dress, I can’t believe it’s only a fraction of the designer price. And the palm print swimsuit is adorable too. I can’t believe you’ve only been here in North America in 2016 and only had your blog this year. It’s amazing, and I cannot wait to see what you do with it this coming 2017!

  26. January 30, 2017 / 11:11 pm

    I love that you took advantage of being on a beautiful beach by waking up for the sunrise each day. The last one was truly stunning! I’ll have to make sure to do that if I’m ever staying some place with an open eastern-facing horizon! You look so fab in that palm print suit!
