Beloved Story

August 21, 2017

✨✨We got Beloved Stories featured! ✨✨Beloved Stories is a community of photographers and romantic visual storytellers. I used their dreamy Lightroom preset to edit these photos captured by Vanessa Mayberry. Now – I’m ever so happy to share our beloved story with you!

There are so many things I cherish about our love story, but one of the things I love most (aside from my deep admiration and respect for Alex as an individual) is our way of communicating with one another. I mean, our personalities have always clicked, and we feel wildly attracted to another in a visceral way, but it’s also the ways in which we sensitively communicate, combined with our desire to understand and be understood, that brings huge meaning to our lives together.

Our story began in high school, Alex was an exchange student (you’ll read the whole story below), and distance was a factor we knew we’d come up against, but we gave into our feelings as teenagers do. Things changed in our University years as we studied in different countries, and we went separate ways to pursue our studies and grow as individuals. We had remained good friends and technology made it easy to keep in touch with each other over the years (as opposed to back in 2005, when we went through hundreds of calling cards!). It was only until recently, when timing, circumstance, and curiosity brought us to meet up in person. What next? Well here’s our story:

Amansala Eco-Chic Resort Tulum

May 22, 2017

The beaches of the Mayan Riviera are some of the most beautiful in the world. When I first visited Tulum 10 years ago, it was just an up and coming yet “hip” spot that attracted experienced travellers from all over the world. It was quiet, people camped on the beach, as there were only a few boutique hotels. Now it is a international hot spot for all those seeking white sand, laid back vibes, but upscale bohemian lifestyle. Amansala Eco-Chic Resort  Tulum encapsulates the spirit of beach life in Tulum. Peaceful atmosphere, minimal and comfortable rooms, open air commune spaces for yoga, working out, eating, pool hanging, dining, enjoying a bon fire or a mid day hammock hang, and more. Amansala Eco-Chic Resort Tulum Mexico

Whether you’re in Tulum for a Yoga Retreat, or you’re on a romantic getaway, looking to adventure along the Mayan Riviera, or simply seeking an authentic spot to unplug from the rest of the world, being welcomed at Amansala amidst the mangroves and palms along the ocean is the place for a genuine Tulum experience.

Jord

My absolute favourite accessory right now is my Jord wood watch! It arrived just in time for my trip to Tulum, suitably fitting with the beachy vibes. The golden face, and warm wood tone of the band complemented all the natural colors I like wearing.
