Do you guys know how hard it is to edit these pics and then stare at them as I  write the post?! Like Ohh Myyy Gawwwdddd *insert hungry sad crying emoji*…

Mexico has such a dear place in my heart. My childhood summers were spent carelessly running through the neighborhood, running to the tienditas to buy endless amount of candy, and food so much food. The thing that I remember most was the busy city, San Luis Potosi, and the carelessness I would feel. Of course I was a child but I remember my parents and the look of pure happiness on their faces- for two straight months. I longed for this feeling as an adult; where I can run around a busy city but have time stand still.  So of course Mexico City was top of the list, it was busy but I was on my own schedule. They’re also known for their mezcal but thats neither here nor there… Needless to say it was exactly that: Busy but sooo calming.

This trip was me and my best friends in a city of 10 million people. Time stood still and nothing ever stopped. It was perfection.

CDMX the most amazing city that I’ve ever visited. I might be biased since Mexico is home but my heart will always belong to S.LP. So, when planning my trip I searched and searched for Mexico City travel blogs, articles, anything really to help me plan my vacation but found nothing.  Everything was outdated so I knew I had to type something up for you guys! Mind you, I am not a travel blogger so there might be some tips missing..oops! Here are some simple tips to get you through your Mexico City stay:

  • Uber- for you safety and because Uber really is the most convenient thing ever
  • Layers- I traveled in late October and coming from Texas climate it was cold AF but once you start exploring it gets a little warm so layer up
  • Back-up Charger(s)- we did the most everyday so that meant leaving our airbnb early and getting back late. This meant low battery/dead phones but luckily my portable charger got me thru the day
  • Moisturizer- higher altitude and cold weather meant crazy skin breakouts. I didn’t know what dry skin looked like until my trip. Pack your best moisturizer!

Do you have any traveling tips to share? I’m putting into the universe that this year will be full of travels!!

Nothing defines a fresh start more than the person in pursuit of something real and more challenging; which is the beauty in new beginnings. This past year has been one of the realest, most beautiful, and hardest years of my twenty-something year old life. I welcomed 2015 as an entrepreneur and it was aamaazing! Everybody needs to be self-employed once in their lives. Towards the end of the year I decided I wanted to go back to work and got a job doing something I always wanted to do for a company I always wanted to work for. Pretty nice year, huh?

Life lessons I learned along the way:

  1. Comfort should be found in your favorite sweatpants and not in everyday life, live a little!
  2. Your partner should be your #1 fan and  #1 critic. I mean, hey, if they can’t be honest then who can? Be ready to process because it isn’t the easiest.
  3. The hustle is real; you have to be ready to put in work to see the results you want.
  4. Going to the gym the majority of the week is the best thing you can do for yourself. The best way to get out of the house and return clear minded when you work from home.
  5. The additional bonding you gain with your child is priceless. No rushing to get to work/school in the AM, no rushing to get home in the evening, and no extended school hours for them. Happiness.

Here’s to a better and brighter 2016!
