A little fun in the sun with my fellow curvy girls is all this busy woman needed to re-charge after the busy holiday season.

A few weeks ago, I joined fashion influencers Rochelle Johnson (beauticurve.com) and Kelly Augustine (www.kellyaugustine.com) for an experience of a lifetime with plus size fashion brand Catherines.

The Blue Diamond Luxury Boutique Hotel, in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico was the perfect backdrop for days filled with laughter, fun times and experiences we will carry with us for a lifetime.

Day 1: Girls Just Want To Have Fun

On our first day, we met for breakfast at Aguamarina restaurant located on the premises and then headed into town to do some shopping.Day 1_2

For our trip into town, I chose this Prairie Bloom Peasant Top in Mantra Green and paired it with White Stretch Capris and these super comfy Good Soles Aztec Sandals.

What other way to unwind after shopping than to hit the pool and sip on banana daiquiris with your girls.

Once the sun went down, we decided to play games. Rochelle whipped our butts, who knew she was so good?

After she cleaned us out, we retired to our villas, which was bigger than most New York City apartments. The villa was exquisitely styled and stocked with everything you would need.Day 1_3 Day 1_4

Day 2: Health and Wellness Day

Our second day started with a quick breakfast and ride up to the spa area. We were scheduled for a yoga class and a massage. I walked away feeling so relaxed and excited to meet my girls at the beach for some laughs and relaxation.Day2_1Day 2_2

I need to be comfortable for yoga so I chose this great “Empower” legging with an Active Tee. Day 2_3

After yoga, I chose this off white Twist Top from the Curvy Collection and paired it with a great Knit Capri and Slingback Heel to wear for the rest of the day.

Day 3: Snorkeling

I knew our third day was going to be super exciting. SNORKELING TIME! Beautiful clear water, fish in so many shapes and colors all under clear blue skies.Day 3_1

The Carnivale Swimsuit was comfortable and gave me support where I needed it the most (bust and tummy area).Swim1

After a quick lunch, we decided to ride bikes through the property.

For our early dinner, I decided to go with this beautiful print Maxi Dress that hugged me in all the right places and paired it with these super cute Woven Wedges. Day 3_4 Day 3_5 Day 3_6

Day 4: Bond GirlsBOND GIRLS

I named this day ‘Bond Girls’ because we took to the beach and owned it!!!! I will admit I was a little nervous at first but once I was in the water, I was in awe of the view and how much FUN it was to race in open water.SWIM 2

Day 4_2 Day 4_3

I chose the Free Spirit High Neck Swimsuit and LOVED IT! This was my favorite. The colors were so VIBRANT and the metallics in the swimsuit just made me sparkle. You won’t see me in a cover up because this swimsuit was so comfortable and supported my body so well. If you are looking for a swimsuit that looks good and gives you maximum support, THIS IS IT!

Farewell DinnerFarewell Dinner

And just like that, our amazing trip to Mexico was coming to a close. Lots of laughs and bonding stories were experienced, all while looking fabulous in Catherines.

For my last farewell dinner, I chose to go a little outside my comfort zone… I chose this super sexy lace top with their Black Label Hollywood Pant.
