If you’re planning on heading to Belize anytime soon, you have to stay at Matachica Resort. Secluded on Ambergris Caye just north of San Pedro it’s a perfect oasis of relaxation and adventure.
After a short 2 hour flight to Belize City and then a 10-minute flight on a small, puddle-jumper type plane to San Pedro. The journey wasn’t over yet, we then had a short golf cart ride to the dock where we’d need to catch a boat to our resort. It may sound like a lot but the airline and Matachica staff handled everything with grace and efficiency. All I had to do was smile and record stories :)
Arriving at the resort by boat was pretty cool actually, we got to have kind of a grand entrance as we walked down the long dock toward the lobby where we were checked in and greeted with welcome drinks. We were informed that there is no tipping on the property as there is an automatic 15% gratuity added to each check and, “the staff knows so to please not worry about tipping.” Which was nice that they reiterated and made it a point to say because that way there was no confusion when it came time to sign the check!
After Check-in we were shown to our room. The Tangerine room which had an ocean view, a matching hammock and was second to the left of the lobby was so cute! Little towel animals and shapes and flower petals on the bed were a nice touch. Realistically, would it really be a tropical vacation if there weren’t animal shaped towels? The filtered water pitcher refreshed daily was another amenity. Y’all know how much I love my water and I LOVED that it wasn’t offered in single-use plastic bottles.
We switched rooms on the last day because our room was booked (we knew that ahead of time and offered to move rooms so we could stay there as our reservation was kind of last minute.) Our second room was much larger and I think, newer. I loved both rooms for different reasons so don’t worry, whatever room you stay in, it will be clean, adorable and it will have a chic matching hammock out front.
At any time you can take out a kayak or go snorkeling, or of course, lay by the pool or beach. It was pretty windy every day we were there except one which was kind of nice because the breeze helped us to not overheat. If you get tired of the wind on the dock you can switch to the pool. I loved the outdoor shower and the fact that they always kept the ice water pitcher full. You can order food or drinks at either spot and both were really nice! I think Jacques preferred the dock because it was cooler. The day beds on the dock, by the way, are a perfect place to watch the sunset. (Tell Archie I said hi!)
We also took advantage of the tours and booked the sunset snorkeling tour at Turtle reef and the Day trip snorkeling tour. The sunset tour was probably my favorite part of the trip. I could watch the sunset every day for the rest of my life and love it each time. I also love being in the water (i’m a mermaid yo) and this spot lived up to its name because we got to swim with a little sea turtle and it was just as magical as it sounds.🐢
The hotel only has one restaurant called “Mambo” but it had a good selection and they were extremely accommodating to all my crazy modifications. My favorite breakfast was the western omelet and I ordered it almost every day. Make sure you ask for the hot sauce because it was AWESOME! I also loved guacamole with GG crackers instead of chips (yes I brought my own to save a few calories) and ceviche with no cucumbers. (I hate cucumbers.) For dinner, I loved the calamari and I tried a new special every day. The fish was always so fresh and our Christmas dinner was so delicious!
I also loved the fact that they had a large selection of dessert and coffee drinks. We enjoyed drinks before dinner almost every night while we played a game of chess. (Their chess set is missing a few pieces, so, bring them a new set if you go.) Each day at the pool we sipped on rosé and I was pleased to find out that they had two selections of rosé… so many places even in the states only have one option so I was really happy, to say the least. (I preferred the drier Italian version, FYI.)
Of course, the service was impeccable. Archie, Alfredo, Christina and the rest of the staff were all so friendly and kind. They always did their best to fulfill a need before we even had to ask.
I would definitely recommend Matachica and hope I can go back and see everyone again!
Recently a True Food Kitchen opened up in Boca Town Center and it’s amazing. If you aren’t fmiliar with TFK already, you’re about to be. True Food Kitchen is built upon the philosophy that food should make you feel better — not worse — and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice taste to live a healthier lifestyle.
“A health-driven, seasonal restaurant merging nutrient-rich ingredients with a flavor-forward menu that rotates regularly to let guests experience great-tasting ingredients at the peak of their freshness. The open kitchen brings guests closer to the culinary craft while showcasing that there’s nothing secret about the way we prepare our dishes.” –TFK
The selection of wine, (many organic) is impressive and their list of local beers would satisfy the most discerning of hop-heads. The seasonal cocktails are made using fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices paired with organic spirits, the only thing they could improve would be to do-away with plastic straws of course and perhaps switch to bamboo, metal, or glass. I will say that their take-out containers are bio degradable though which is a great step in the right direction.
Jacques and I eat pretty much everything but we try to be mindful of how much meat/seafood we eat as it’s not good for the environment. Thankfully most if not all of TFK’s food is sourced locally, humanely, and naturally. On top of that they have options for all types of diets, sensitivities and prefrences. Gluten free? Check. Dairy free? Check. Vegan? Check!
TFK is the Brainchild of Dr Weil, a doctor who specializes in and litterally wrote the book on eating to live healthier by reducing inflamation.
If you know anything about inflamation you know chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease. Inflammation on the surface of the body is known as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body’s healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke) can all contribute to such chronic inflammation, but dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term disease risks. (source)
No, seriously. Not only is the food formulated by Dr. Weil to be anti inflamitory, but it tastes amazing.
I started off with a chicken soup which was Phenominal! It definitly had a kick to it which I love and it tasted so fresh!
Then we shared the Wild Caught Albacore Tataki which was delightlful and also spicy!
Next, I got the Grilled fish and grass fed steak tacos. I decided to get one of each to try and I could hardly tell you which was better but in my opinion, the steak was slightly tastier!
Jacques got the turkey burger and wasn’t blown away by it.
We finished with the flourless chocolate cake with vegan ice cream and the squash pie with coconut cream whipped topping (don’t know official names). I personally don’t like pumpkin pie but if you do, you’ll love the squash pie. I was obsessed with the flourless checkolate cake as it was partially molten and that’s my favorite!
We went before TFK Boca was officially open, a friends and family weekend and although the staff was still learning, I was really impressed with how well they knew their stuff. Everyone was extremely accomodating and had good knowledge of the ingredients and flavor profiles of the food/drinks.
All in all, I was blown away with this place. I really want to go for brunch and try that menu, I just know it’ll be amazing! If you’re local or you live near a True Food Kitchen and haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend you try it out!
Spring is one of my favorite seasons. I love pastels, I love florals, and I love what spring represents which is starting fresh. If you feel a little stuck in a fashion rut, spring is the perfect time to refresh your style. Here are some of the spring trends I’m loving and which anyone can pull off.
Check Print. This blazer from H&M is a major favorite of mine. The fit is perfection and it’s light enough to be worn as a shirt. Make sure you wear it belted to keep it secure, the snaps are a little flimsy. I also love this print in a mini dress or a newsboy cap to embrace another trend.
Newsboy Caps. I LOVE HATS. Hats are one of my favorite accesories because they can either cover up your hair or accentuate it. If you have long shiny locks, they look so fresh cascading from these little caps, if you have akward hair or dirty hair they instantly elevate your style.
Pastels. Lavender specifically. Lavender is one of my favorite colors and so is pale pink. You can mix these colors together or go totally monochrom. A fun way to incorporate pastels into a look is with accesories. A pale yellow bag or scarf. A pair of lavender slides or pumps. There are so many cute options this spring!
Transparent. Whether it’s clear plastic or mesh, the see-through trend is ironically hard to miss. Again accessories are an easy way to incorporate this trend but I also love a mesh top layer like a sheer kimono or mesh trench coat.
Polka Dots. Specifically black and white polka dots. I LOVE this trend. It can be subtle or full on Minnie Mouse. A spotted blouse and black trousers is sufficient for the office, but a flitry skirt and crop top is perfect for the weekend. I especially love a classic wrap dress in this print, it’s ultra feminine.
Sock Booties. These are a continuing trend from 2017 and I’m here for it. I love how streamlined they are and how feminine they look. Clunky boots aren’t my thing and I feel like a lot of ankle booties cut your ankle visually and shorten your stature. Sock booties on the other hand, er uh, foot, continue the line of your leg and especially if worn monochromatically (nude for bare legs, black for black jeans) can make your legs look a mile long.
FruitPrint. This one wasn’t on the runways and isn’t on all the lists on who what wear, but I’ve seen so many adorable fruit prints I cannot even. Lemons, cherries, oranges and more, the fruit salad trend is lit.
Circle Bags. These are so in, from round ratten bali bags to hat-box inspired styles, the circle bag is the it-bag for spring.
Pearls. Pearls on anything and everything except your neck. Pearl embellished bags, belts, earrings, shoes and more are all over the runways and the highstreet stores. I am a huge fan and clearly I’m embracing this trend. The best part is that pearls are timeless so even when they’re not “everything” they’re still chic.

So I guess my school dress code of all black is rubbing off on me. I’ve started to finally have a little fun with the monochrome look. I love this Good American bodysuit paired with these Bebe trousers. The play of cutouts and coverage is so sexy yet not too much. I added pops of red with the clutch and lipgloss to compliment the bottoms of my heels. This Givenchy Beauty gloss has quickly become a favorite of mine. I love this red shade “Rouge Thriller” as well as “Crazy in Rose” shade they sent. The formula is so hydrating and for a gloss, it actually stays put. You know I rarely cover beauty on my blog so mentioning this gloss is because I actually really like it. Now I just have to get brave enough to try the black shade they sent.
I asked yall on Instagram if you wanted a Calpak luggage review and most people said yes so here it is! I also included other travel necessities I can’t travel without as well as a giveaway with Protect My Shoes.
Thank you so much for watching!
This is a worldwide giveaway
Giveaway will run until EOD March 5th, 2018
Since getting some baby pink slide loafers from Nordstrom’s BP department last summer, I’ve worn them countless times. I wear them with dresses, jeans, skirts, and overalls. I’ve worn them on international flights and around the house. I’ve literally worn them more than any other pair of shoes the last several months. Since I’ve gotten so much use out of them and they’re starting to wear out I decided to invest in a nicer pair. These Gucci Princetown loafers are a dream. They’re so comfortable, classic, and chic. I know I’ll have them for years to come.
I paired my new loafers with this matching (super inexpensive) button-down dress and Chloe Nile bag (which also comes in pink now!)
