Cancun Living with The Ritz-Carlton

This week on…Moti Goes to The Beach.

Just kidding, except I actually did go to the beach, but this time It was the coast of Mexico! I was invited to call The Ritz-Carlton my home for a weekend in Cancun and here is how that went down.

Mexico is known to have the best service. The staff over at The Ritz-Carlton are always thinking ahead and driving defensively. While i was there I personally never felt like I needed something or I was missing anything since I already had or the staff member was right behind me with whatever it was I needed. It’s a great feeling! Especially when you’re on vacation.

5 Things to Do in Cancun:

Have dinner @ The Chef’s Table
One of the best meals I’ve had in a really long time. Chef Mara invited us into her kitchen, which was a super intimate and personal setting, where we had the chance to experience Mara doing her magic behind the counter and then tasting it. The menu for the night was Mexican, my absolute favorite, with a local touch. Mara’s presentation was exquisite, and every dish looked like a piece of art. The 6-course +17185527479meal included various wines from Mexico, ceviche, tacos and of course Mexican doughnuts drizzled in chocolate. This was one of my favorite experiences in 2017, I kid you not.

Cirque du Soleil JOYà
I’ve been to Vegas many times, however, this is my first Cirque du Soleil show I’ve ever experienced. Prepare yourselves for 90 minute show packed with entertainment! The show takes place about 45 minutes outside of Cancun and offers a list of options to enjoy the show including a delicious dinner prior to the show. For more information and to book tickets, visit their site HERE.

Visit Isla Mujeres
Cancun is very much an beach town, but there are so many cool towns outside of it like Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Isla Mujeres. It’s a colorful town and a great place to hit the beach, but also there’s a big market filled with small shops and places to eat and drink.

Get a Massage @ The Ritz-Carlton Spa
The BEST massage hands down. I’ve had a dozen massages my entire life, but this one hit the ball park for me. It was a hot-stone massage by Talia (ask for her!), and it was the most soothing and relaxing experience I’ve had in a while. For more information and to book your massage, visit their site HERE.

Rent a Cabana By The Beach
If you’re looking to relax by the beach, there’s no other way to do than in a cabana by the beach. Along with beach chairs each cabana has a hammock that is perfect to lay in. Additionally, while I was on the beach enjoying a cocktail, one of the staff members was coming around giving out head massages and then placing a cold, ice cold, towel and cucumbers over your eyes. I now can tell you what heaven feels like.

 

Swinging in Style with Ted Baker Golf

Wearing:

Birdy Polo, Legolf Polo, Unpar Golf Pants, Belt, SneakersTed Baker

I wouldn’t consider myself a professional golfer since I only get to play once or twice a year (I blame the lack of space  in New York City which doesn’t allow for a  great golf course.) Over the weekend I flew down south to the Caribbean where I got to experience the most beautiful golf course in Aruba, The Links at Divi Aruba.

For the few hours I played I worked, I had the chance to test drive the new Ted Baker Golf Collection. The collection consists of graphic polos, in addition to bright solids, golf pants, printed vests and even leather golf gloves, which will give you another reason to play the sport. Golf can be conceived as a ‘boring” sport, but that’s probably because you don’t know how to play or have a really luxury golf course to play at. For me, I wanted to show that golf can be fun by dressing up with a punch of print, like the golf ball shirt photographed above. The collection is made out of stretch fabric polos, weather proof outwear and tailored pants so it’s both functional and wearable on and off the course.

You can check out the full collection right HERE. What do you think? Up to play some golf?

The 7 Things You Need for Spring

You should totally ignore that massive snow storm that hit New York last week because Spring is here! It’s time to store your chunky knits, scarves, boots and down jackets with fur-hoods and get ready to upgrade your closet with all need Spring Essentials.

 

If you haven’t heard already, Canali, The Ferraris and Bentleys of Italian tailoring,  recently launched their new e-commerce site and offers a range of suitspolosaccessories and every shade of blue you can think about (well, almost, but you get where I’m going with that).

I’ve chosen Canali to share with you guys my 7 must haves this Spring!

A Suit That is Not Navy

 

Navy suits are so last season. Spice up your suit game with a suit that is blue and appropriate for the new season. ($3,095, canali.com)

Transitional Outwear Piece

You need a transitional jacket that is lightweight and not to warm. Plus a number that will have you prepared for April showers and protected like this rain and wind field jacket with a fold-away hood ($1695, canali.com)

A Spring Knit

 

A knit is probably the most versatile piece in your closet during the Spring season. On the cooler days of Spring you can layer it under your suit or shirt, while the warmer days you can  wear the knit solo. ($595, canali.com)

A Color-block Polo

Polos are back, and aren’t just for the dad that likes to golf on the weekends. Try something fun and loud like this tricolor polo ($375, canali.com)

Stonewash Denim

It’s not quite time for white denim just yet, so keep those in your closet for just a little bit longer. In the meantime opt in for a pair of stone wash denim that are super versatile, like these. You can dress them up with a button down, tucked in of course, with a sleek belt or dressing it casual with a tee or polo, it’s totally up to you! ($450, canali.com)

Wrist Candy

A little accessorizing never hurt nobody. ($195, canali.com)

White Kicks

It should be a tradition, if it isn’t already, to buy a new pair of white sneakers every spring season. Try these perforated leather kicks with brown trim.  ($550, canali.com)

I’d like to thank Canali for the collaboration.
