When your Mom’s turning 60 and it’s time for the ultimate mother-daughter celebration outside of the states but not off of the continent, where do you go? Channel your inner Frida and hop a plane to Mexico City to explore the historic and buzzing town filled with art and culture from your home base in the chic and spirited neighborhood of Condesa.

Perched on a corner in a 1928 French neoclassical building overlooking the lush Parque España sits the equally charming and fresh Hotel Condesa DF.

Located in the wine-centric region of Baja California, this Mexican glamping spot is a creative and fresh take on the typical canvas tent camp.

In the venerable words of Charles Bukowski, “Some men never die and some men never live, but we’re all alive tonight.” Everyone deserves a night that never ends. A night that “runs up [your] wrists, into your head and back down to your gut.”  A night in a seek and you won’t find spectacular hidden spot where the lights are low, the drinks are strong and the entirety of it turns into one of the best stories of your life. Sounds like any Saturday night at your local watering hole, right? NOT. This is a real-life bohemian gypset disco smack in the middle of the Mexican jungle, serving up fresh, local fare & smoky mezcal cocktails with a side of pulse-pounding beats so beautifully perfect your very bones will sing. 

Our #BirthdayBucketList of the week finds us buying a same-day plane ticket, grabbing our bests, something sparkly and gypsetting for twenty-four hours in Tulum, dancing the night away in a jungle disco. A sweet and sweaty night in the middle of a jungle lit only by the light of the moon and the silvery sparkle of a disco ball.

Any time someone mentions a theme wedding, we’re all ears, and this Frida Kahlo theme wedding in Mexico’s Colonial heartland had our attention faster than we could open up a cerveza. Photographed by the lovely Mariana Pierce of Pierce Lifestyle Photography, this wedding is one of the most colorful, unique and celebratory weddings we’ve seen in a while. They even had a flower-adorned burro!

This modern day Frida tale takes place at a gorgeous estate in San Miguel de Allende known as Casa Tortuga. The seven-room luxury villa is tucked up in the hills of town. The lush landscaping, many patios, beautiful pool, and incredible architecture make this special spot feel like it exists in another time period, while the furnishings and décor are fresh and timeless.
