That One Time I Went To Mexico And Took 9,000 Pictures Of Water And Only Two Of Myself

So I'm back from Mexico and this trip was even better than our honeymoon. The resort that we stayed at last year was adults only and super fancy. It was lovely, don't get me wrong ... but it was one of those places where you're afraid to touch anything because you might break something and then end up on the show Locked Up Abroad, or you will owe $27,963 plus your first born child in restitution. You know what I mean?

The resort that we stayed at this year allowed children, had fun drinking games, karaoke and other entertainment by the pool, dance and yoga classes, was built around an amazing coral reef and lagoon which housed thousands of beautiful tropical fish (which were 100x more colorful and plentiful than the fish that we payed $150 to swim with last year in Cancun!). The food and drinks were fantastic, the spa was much needed and incredibly luxurious, and I'm already hoping to take a trip next year with a group of friends - want to join? It can be the ultimate blogger's meetup ;)

I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation! Have you ever felt that way? After being so relaxed for five days straight, and then coming home to enjoy a lazy weekend, I am whipped!! I can't believe it's August - I feel like I said the same thing in July and June - oh wait, because I did.

Summer 2013, you need to slow down, please.



Today I'd like you to meet Melissa from Jelly Design Studio
Having been launched in March of 2012, Jelly Design Studio has been years in the making. As a blogger, Melissa found herself countless nights coding and designing her very own blog design. As a final result she realized her true passion. 

Melissa codes both Wordpress and Blogger designs, and she offers super affordable ($30!) pre-made Blogger templates that you must check out if your blog is in need of a facelift. Take a look at my three favorite designs:

As if coding wasn’t enough, Melissa is also the editor of Blush and Jelly, a well-rounded blog about fashion, food, and inspirations. There she is able to show her readers her personal side as it relates around her always-busy life style. Blush and Jelly is one of my favorite blogs and you should definitely add it your daily read list, too! ---> Blush and Jelly.
