capella resort, ixtapa - photo diary 1

i am recently returned from Ixtapa, Mexico where i was able to spend 6 days courtesy of the glorious Capella resort! traveling is very important to me and it's also one of my favorite things to blog about, so i'm excited to share this experience with everyone. matt and i had such a great time enjoying the sun, the pools and the amazing activities the area had to offer. we took a million pictures! these are the ones from around the resort and I'll share the rest in the coming days. 

in the above photo i'm wearing my vitamin a gold bikini, tory burch sunglasses courtesy of sunglass hut, a lightnight bolt necklace and armor/vertibrae inspire bracelet made by me.

There was so much delicious food at the resort. This dish was called Huevos Veracruzana.
