Neon Mint Bikini in Playa Del Carmen

Hey guys, here’s the first set of photos from Playa del Carmen! WeΒ recently spent a week there for Kirill’s birthday (maybe you saw onΒ instagram?). I’ve been wearing this neon mint bikini all summer but this was the first time I properly shot it. I was waiting for the perfect beach, and this was definitely it. It was actually the neighbouring hotel’s beach and for whatever reason it was almost always empty.

I know one-pieces have been super trendy this year but I’m more of a bikini girl. I tan very easily and like to take advantage of it. The darker my skin is, the more me I feel. And I love feeling the sun on my skin. Isn’t that what summer’s all about? It was so amazing having an extra week of itΒ in Mexico. Swimming in possibly the warmest water I’ve ever swam in for hours every day, watching wild coaties (they’re like raccoons) running around the beach, eating our body weights in guacamole, attempting to dance salsa. Coming home to cooler temperatures was a bit hard for me. I don’t think I’ve ever dreaded fall more.

But I really can’t complain. Especially since today is Canadian Thanksgiving! I’m thankful to be living where I’m living, and for all the travel opportunities I’ve had (and who I’ve had them with). The more I travel, the more I see that every part of the world has its own unique beauty. I hope I can experience as much of it as possible.

Thanks for reading! Where’s your dream end-of-summer destination?
