Mexico Diaries day 2 | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Mexico Diaries day 2

this cove was literally covered in water .2 seconds after this picture was taken. that tide thooo!

balcony view! yes, that is the ocean in the upper right hand corner. yes I am crying bc I don't actually live here.

The boys and their spears. so fierce.



See day 1day 3day 4&5

Awh man, I love these pictures! I feel like we've already been back for like ever when really it's just been a few days! Day 2 consisted of movie watching, beaching, and exploring. Jason had been to Rocky Point before and knew of a good spear fishing place (cause, you know, everyone goes spear fishing haha) So we found the place and explored. and when I say explored I mean I forced j to take pictures with me before he left to actually explore with tanner. and then I explored the fact that the water was rising super fast and me and Ashley had to save all our stuff from getting swept away forever.
We also went shopping! My goal was to get a new marc Jacobs purse. Hail no would I ever spend like $400+ on a purse so I love me a good ole knockoff. I had gotten one a few years ago when my brother and I went on a cruise and it recently started to get all worn and gross so I was really looking forward to getting a new one. Luckily the sales guy gave me such a good deal!!!!! jk cause we all know my bargaining skills suck and I didn't push lower than $35 because in case you can't tell, i'm not very assertive and bargaining would require that trait. But I was happy with $35 because that is pretty average for a purse. I really liked this cute soft hot pink tank but this is pretty much what happened at every store-
Me trying to bargin: how much is this?
store- $12
me- what about $6?
store- no
me- ... oh ok um bye then have a nice day
ps that tactic does not work so don't try it. you're welcome.
 We also got that sweet Mexican blanket! Ashley and Tanner bought it first for $10 cause clearly they have bargaining skills. so obviously we just used the ole "well theirs was $10 so..." and it worked. After that we got ice cream at this place called Thriftys and omg it was so good. Their pina colada ice cream was delish! There's a thrifty's in the states and I need to go like asap! After shopping, the boys went back to the spear fishing site and me and Ash just went to the beach and made burgers for the boys. Day 2 was perf!

  1. Bahahaha I totally try bargain like that too. I'm so embarrassed when it doesn't work! I think it's an innate talent that just can't be taught. Some have it and some don't! I'm sadly in the don't category.

  7. Hahahaha! I am laughing so hard imagining your bargaining conversation going down! I probably would have felt so awkward, I would have just walked away after they said no! I'm glad you got your coveted purse though :) It is gorrrrrgeous!

  10. Stunning photos! Ahhh I'm so excited to use my GoPro in two weeks in Madrid (your photos made me super excited haha)

    PS- don't worry about the bargain thing, I haven't even bargained once yet because I'm lame and I'm too scared to even get the price lower so I don't bother.
