Rachael: “Hey, what are you doing February 2-5?”
Me: “Nothing right now, what’s up?”
Rachael: “Want to go to Mexico with me?”
My best friend Rachael (who is one of my biggest supporters and hype girls) hit and exceeded all of her sales goals this year and made President’s Club…which means she earned an all expenses paid vacation Playa Del Carmen, Mexico…and she got to bring one person!!! I am SO incredibly thankful that she chose me to be her +1 because we had the best trip!!
We stayed at the Paradisus La Perla Resort in the Royal Service section and it was SO nice. This was my first time at a resort and the bar is set pretty high now! We had two bathtubs in our room, overlooking the ocean, with excellent service, and a private pool.
The resort staff was probably by favorite part – they gave the best service I’ve ever had, everyone was so nice, and we were always laughing with them!! 10/10 would recommend!!!
Mostly our trip was spent drinking Miami Vices by the pool and then heading to one of the restaurants for our next meal. They had a ton of options but our favorite was right beside our private pool.
I vlogged the entire trip and I know everyone is just really excited to see Rachael (aka @loudhotblonde) be her extra self…there is definitely no shortage of that!!
The resort staff made the trip!!! 100%!!! I’ve never had such excellent service and people that made me laugh so hard.
My best friend is an actual Victoria’s Secret Angel!!!!
We LOVE Miami Vices (strawberry daiquiri and pina colada mixed together)! Our bartender Johny was awesome and we spent most of our time hanging out in and by the pool. Napping in the sun is one of my favorite things to do so it was perfect!
This was our girl gang for the week!!! We laughed HARD over our meals and explored all over the resort.
