Cancun Chic

Nikka Shae Cancun

Hey Lovelies!

Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to the tropics on a sun-filled getaway in uber-chic Cancun, Mexico courtesy of the fabulous Travel Divas. Surrounded by gasp-worthy views at every turn, the uh-mazing Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun resort was the perfect backdrop to a wonderful week of pampering, private cabanas, lots of Sangria, and plenty of poolside posing. I mean, who goes to a  picturesque place like Cancun and doesn’t indulge in an impromptu photo shoot (or three). Right? So in the tradition of “Divas & Destinations” here are a few seaside styles that I rocked during my stay in lovely Cancun. Enjoy! Continue Reading…

Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered.
