Playa Esperanza in Tulum

Hey friends!

If you saw my recent post or kept up with me on social media, you would know I was in Tulum, Mexico a couple weeks ago. I stayed at Playa Esperanza Hotel during my last few days in the city. When I got there I was stunned because our bungalow was right in front of the beach!! Such an incredible view from the room and a lot of open space. I loved relaxing in the front patio and having a cooler to keep all my fresh fruit. There were hammocks hanging everywhere, and beautiful palm trees surrounding the entire atmosphere. They also had a private bar within the resort and out by the beach as well.

It felt like being in a jungle, but the room was luxurious and quiet at night. I would recommend staying at Playa Esperanza if you are looking for a beachfront hotel! Enjoy the rest of my photos and please check out their website. xx

Tropicalito Hotel in Tulum

Hey Friends!

I went on a trip to Tulum, Mexico a couple weeks ago and had an amazing experience! The first few nights I stayed at Hotel Tropicalito located on the beach in the Penthouse room. The view from my room was incredible! You could see the ocean, and feel the cool breeze coming in. The room was very spacious, bright, and had the cutest vintage decor. I  loved the laid-back atmosphere and quiet area.

The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I really enjoyed walking up to the beach and enjoying the nice view. The pool was so refreshing during the day and it was nice to have privacy.

The hotel is located near many restaurants, shops, and activities, so it was really convenient being close to everything. We were able to experience a lot in the local area without having to take a taxi. I definitely recommend coming to Hotel Tropicalito during your visit to Tulum, Mexico. Check out more photos below and the link to their website! Enjoy xx

Weekend Adventures

 

My good friend Brian and I decided to spend some time hanging out in La Jolla. We walked everywhere that day to try and get a lot of fun footage! I danced around the streets and made silly faces for the camera. La Jolla is such a beautiful beach town filled with nice restaurants, shops, and cute houses. If you are ever in the San Diego area, La Jolla Shores is definitely a spot to check out. I mean who doesn’t love incredible sunsets!? Please enjoy the video and check out my friend’s work below.

Summer Moments

One of my favorite places in Los Angeles is the Venice Canals which features a stream of water that wraps around the beautiful neighborhood. You can cross over different bridges to walk around the area or you can take a canoe to go sightseeing. I met up with my photographer for the day, and we shot some sunglasses for ZeroUV.

I decided to style these boho sunnies with a lace strapless romper in white, and a floral lace choker! I am big on looking effortless and chic to make it the perfect combo for going out with friends or an important date night. Check out the look below and let me know what you think! You can find these sunnies on the website linked below. xo

VIPme Review

We all have a unique spark within us that is meant to shine bright in this world. Embracing all your strengths and weaknesses is key to loving who you truly are! One of my favorite fashion companies VIPme, believes that beauty comes in all different sizes, shapes, and colors. No matter who you are and where you come from, you are uniquely beautiful. I support VIPme because they genuinely care about their customers and are involved in helping the environment. They are also committed to charity by partnering with 365 Love Foundation. I am collaborating with VIPme to share with you the unique qualities about them.

I recently met with a photographer from San Francisco to feature an item from the VIPme collection. I picked out an amazing bohemian and floral romper which has a sexy deep v neck. During my photoshoot, I walked around the Venice Canals with my new friend Brandon to take some photos wearing the romper. I loved how comfortable and light the romper felt. It’s fitted around the waist, and flowy near the hips. I paired it with a floral lace choker and some tan sandals. It’s a great look to wear during any occassion such as the beach, dinner, or even a concert. I personally love rompers because it’s an easy outfit you throw on when you’re busy and on the go! You can easily look stylish and put together by adding a few simple accessories. The best part about this romper from VIPme, is the amazing price for such high quality!

Check out this look below to see how it’s styled. Also, make sure to go on the VIPme website to get your very own romper by using my special code SISamantha78. Thank you for reading, and don’t forget to tell yourself I am beautiful and #uniquelyme! xo

Tai Lopez’s Influencer Pool Party

I was invited back to Tai’s house last weekend for an amazing pool party with some of the biggest influencers on social media! It was such a great networking opportunity and fun experience to hang out with a huge talented crowd. I got to meet influencers who had millions of followers on Instagram and big YouTube creators. Fetty Wap also made an appearance later in the evening which was pretty cool to see him!

Tai is someone who sparked an interest in me to pursue business, and it was cool getting to be around like minded people. I am working on some projects to launch within this year. I am excited for what’s to come, and thank you always for your support! xo

 

Test Shoot with Mclaren Ray

I recently worked with the fashion and portrait photographer Mclaren Ray who shoots some of the biggest models in the industry! He was so awesome and fun to work with. We kept it simple and natural because most modeling agencies want clean images to show your natural beauty. Check out some of my favorite looks below! xo

Lifeguard on Duty

During Social Media Week LA, Ryan and I quickly rushed to Santa Monica to catch the sunset for our swimwear shoot! We shot around the lifeguard tower since no one was around. It was a perfect way to end a long day of learning and networking. I am wearing the Nosara Top and Hermosa Bottom from Pura Vida Bracelets.

Arts District in LA

It was my first time working with Ryan who is a fashion and lifestyle photographer based in San Francisco. I met him at the Love Culture party awhile back, and we finally met to shoot! It was so much fun getting to work with him and snapping tons of Fyuse content! If you guys haven’t heard of Fysuse before, it’s basically the coolest new app ever! It involves a community of people who capture their life moments from different angles to create 3D images.

Ryan and I met with Yuki who is a blogger and singer. It was nice getting to know her and learn about her experiences. What I love about this industry is being able to meet people from all different backgrounds and cultures. It’s interesting to learn about someone’s goals and their drive to be a better person. After the sunset, we headed to eat at this restaurant and talked about our own goals. Check out my new friend Ryan and his amazing work at http://ryanbyryanchua.com.
