A Cold and Costa Rica

I've been feeling under the weather the past couple of days. I really hate getting sick because it messes with my schedule and I feel absolutely useless. I want to do my laundry, continue with bootcamp classes and finish my Louie chairs but my body is saying, WOMAN. YOU CRAZY. It's been go-go-go lately and it's definitely catching up to me.

My time in bed has got me thinking about my upcoming vacation. Some good friends of ours will be getting married in Costa Rica and we are booked! They are true adventure seekers so I'm sure some ziplining and other fun stuff will be on the itinerary. I can't wait to explore the rainforest, the surrounding towns and of course lie on the beach for some much needed R&R.

Also, this looks interesting:

And speaking of tropical, check out the packaging on these babies. My cousin gave me the cutest flip flops for Christmas; designer ones to boot. Never thought I'd own a pair of Tory Burch flip flops and now I get to sport them this summer (Thanks again Jing if you are reading this). I'm in love with their branding. I'm such a sucker for great packaging too. I can't even bring myself to throw out the bag or the box. The vibrant colour and bold pattern is absolutely stunning and definitely puts me in the mood for some fun in the sun.

Have you been to Costa Rica? Any suggestions on where to go and what to see?
