I need to start this blog by saying a huge thank you to Expedia.ca and TSN for coming up with such an amazing contest! Yes, I said contest… I actually WON this trip to Finest Resort in Playa Mujeres, Mexico. Originally won as a 10-day, all-inclusive vacation for myself + 1 guest (of course, that was my hubby!) along with 9 other Canadian winners and their guests, we got to enjoy luxury for a full week (as we had to leave early due to work, and our upcoming cruise only a week later… Yep… This is my life people!).

As you can see above, the facilities are absolutely stunning, clean, and luxurious. Our “standard room” had an outdoor bed on the balcony, along with an indoor/outdoor jacuzzi which could easily fit 4 people. We had a massive king sized bed, an L-shaped couch, and large bathroom with a rain shower and double sink. Like I said, absolutely gorgeous.

As Canadians, we love our hockey. The whole point of this contest was to send Canadians to the beach to watch the World Junior Hockey Championships. They decked us out in jerseys, shirts, and swag, and we got to hang out in the Legends Sports bar for every game! The staff in here were particularly great (Roberto, especially!) and put up with far too many Canadian shenanigans! Following the games, our days were spent by one of the many pools around the resort, although we always ended up back at the main pool with the swim up bar and two of the hottest hot tubs in the resort.

I happily got to sport my brand new Triangl bikini, featured above. This is the MILLY: NEW YORK NOIR. I love the look of the faux leather, and my nickname “Batgirl” seemed suiting. On a side note, if you have read my previous review of my POPPY triangl suit, I decided to size up a bit for this one. I went with a S+ in the top, and S in the bottom. I definitely am glad I went up for the top, but the bottoms unfortunately stretched out significantly more than my Poppy ones did. Thankfully, Triangl has amazing customer service and are replacing my bottoms for XS. (Thank you, Triangl!!)

I also decided to sport my newest Sand Cloud towel at the pool, and it was looking mighty fine against the blue water and the palm trees! These towels are so cute & soft, help save sea life, AND you can get 25% off using my code, “PITMAN25” at check out! Get there! 🙂

I was so busy between watching the games and relaxing, I just didn’t take all the much time to take #ootd photos! It’s a hard life… 🙂 Above is definitely a new favourite summer outfit – feeling feminine and fit in this combo. The halter tank is from O’Neill Canada, and I have reviewed it previously in my O’Neill For Everyday post, if you want to check it out!

One final note about the resort, is that although we loved the facilities and the bars were stocked to perfection, the food was nothing to write home about. If you decide to go to this resort, the best restaurants by FAR are the French, Tappas, Steakhouse, and Japanese. I don’t want to say anything that reflects poorly on this amazing place because we truly had one of the best weeks of our lives! The service, the rooms, the pools, the spa, and everything else was absolutely amazing. Thank you to all those involved – we truly feel so blessed!
Sincerely,
Kristin xx
