Touristy Cancun

Hello!

We didn't really explore Cancun before as tourist. I turned out we fully visited it only when we started living here. It is actually fun because we can explore it from two point of views at the same time. And giving it no rush over anything. Cancun has neatly separated tourist zone with nothing but hotels, eateries and some entertainment like big aquarium. It also has some ruins. In fact we have two set of small ruins here one are actual ruins of fishermen village of Cancun (it is believed to be translates as a snake nest which I personally adore with all my heart as not only I love reptiles but also often joke around I am either a reptile myself or at least been one in my past life or lives) and the other ruins are the ruins of the farm. The latter are located next to the big Maya museum (only city of Merida has it bigger), the entry is cheap and gives you access to both the museum are ruins/garden (bonus points for a huge number of iguanas there). We absolutely loved it there and as they often host temporary art exhibitions there I am sure we will come again and again for some art. The Mayan part of the museum is very educational, you can learn a lot of how they used to live, about their cultures and arts (as you can guess from the photos, I am a fan of pottery they showed). The focus is never set on the war matters despite the Yukatan peninsula bloody past and I am very grateful for that. 







 
 

There also are Scorpion temple ruins on the way there right on the beach. The ruins are completely free and small but it worth the visit if you are around. Also it's very refreshing to stay there because of the breeze, can be handy if the day is hot (wasn't actually our case but still).
 


We walked all the way from our home to the museum and back and while it was a very long road we truly enjoyed it. Highly recommend exploring the tourist area on Cancun on foot, without taxies or buses (the buses are very cheap though, it's a great option to come back if you feel tired). The beaches of Cancun are divided and each has its own name and mostly you can see the difference in the beach corresponding to its name. I also find it pretty handy.

For the walk I wore a neon top that covered my shoulders just in case sunscreen might let me down. A hat to cover from the sun (I actually mostly wore it in my bag though because of the wind), a loose short dress and a small bag to carry my phone. The outfit is very comfortable and I like the way it turned out. I find it a great compromise between style and comfort, not giving in to any hurting the other. what do you think?


I was wearing:
DKNY dress
Marc by Marc Jacobs bag (very old, and it's actually my first ever bag on the expensive side)
Uniqlo x Ines de la Fressage hat
c/o iGlassesshop sun glasses
Monki top

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

    1. It's actually the most popular resort on Mexico but most of the tourists are either Mexicans from other regions or people of North America: Canada and the USA. Most of the travel bloggers I follow are more interested in Europe or central Asia, I guess "the new world" is a little overlooked in that perspective

  8. I am thinking about taking Darcee to Cancun for her Baby moon cause she would love exploring the ruins but also just chilling out at the beach and it seems like Cancun offers you the ability to do both well

    1. yes, that's a wonderful idea. You might also consider Tulum area: it's closer to many other ruins and Tulum ruins itself are better, offers better cenote (Cancun only has one operational) and has a nice ceramics museum too. Cancun is bigger on beaches (coast line is better and there is WAY less of seaweed issue) and nightlife (and also has two ruin smaller but still two) and more attractions like aquariums, dolphins and theaters/concert halls. In my opinion Cancun a more of a place to live which a tourist don't need all that much. Tulum is more compact which is very convenient because you can walk pretty everywhere there and it is easier to get to Coba ruins, Chichen Itza and my personal love of Muyul as well as Valladolid (it's a city and made in a typical colonial style, it feels very fresh after all the touristy places and Maya ruins + the best cenotes in the peninsula are there). If you are taking a baby with you (which makes less movile and parting) Tulum is a better option. I wouldn't recommend Playa Del Carmel at all though: it's mostly for a party time and drugs, generally not very safe.

  14. I love Max's shirt! Lol. Now I need to go find that for my husband. I'm glad you two are able to get out and explore so much of Cancun. It has been on my travel bucket list for a while, so it is interesting to see the places you visit and learn more about them.

    1. if and when you come you should definitely let me know so we can meet up! I think that would be a blast! I am very big on travels and being pregnant I actually need to move a lot because it's healthy and needed for the baby and myself too, it matches nicely with a new city to explore

Explore Starcon

I'm going to brake up vacation post series to share the Starcon experience. A week ago I was sitting on the same spot and getting ready to go. We've been to lovely Saint  Petersburgh. We managed to have a charming walk in the  evening even right after the con. Starcon was all about sci-fi and we loved it so much. We even wore the Jedi costumes (wait for them in the end of post). Max, my lovely husband, sewed them for only 3 days (that's why the design is so simple). and I also got 2d place in Star Wars Miniatures board game tournament took place there. I'm so happy! As for outfit - I've chosen a super comfy outfit with a very cool pants! I bought them on ebay and they are more than 20 year old pants (I guess soon they could buy booze on their own but I doubt I need it). I love them for their shape - keeping me cool during hot and warm when needed. Oh, and can I also call it my pijama pants trend pants? or not? What I also wanted to mention you are my fab set jewel

МКММ + Couture Fashion Show

So! I am so very excited! I have visited my first real actual fashion show ever since March and I couldn’t ever be happier. It’s just wow! This time I visited MKMM final shows merged with Couture Fashion Show later that night. I had a chance to see many wonderful shows by young and talented designers and enjoyed it a lot. Creativity everywhere. Something is purely catwalk (and I totally don’t mind it at all), something that is very easy to imagine rushing the streets, something very creative and futuristic and making a statement with so much in between. Overall in love. I don’t think I really can be picky because after all those digital shows real made a huge impression on me. It almost as if I am visiting my first ever fashion show but better because I know what to expect. I think you are not reading this and already scrolled past this point and enjoy the contestants. And don’t blame you at all.  RU: Прекрасные новости! Мой первый настоящий офлайн показ с марта месяца. И он оказася пр

The Big day inspiration

Today is a big day for my husband's family. It's his sister's wedding day. Crazy huh? She used to be his little sister and now she's getting married! I'm sure we'll have a lot of joy on the event but before that I wanted to share some inspirational content with you! Lets imagine you're accompanying me to the wedding party! To provide you with that feeling I teamed up with a new shop to me. I didn't know about it before but now I'd say it's a shame. Lovely choices! Are you ready to know how it's called? I hope you are! So the shop is called Jjshouse     They have tons of wonderful styles! I was so happy to look through the options! Too many not to become overjoyed! Sooo good! But I wanted to pick something interesting for today. I'm not saying anything bad with my choice but the section I loved the most on wedding collection part is mother of the bride dresses  To inspire you and show you the lovely styles stolen my heart I'll gonna sh
