Last month, my mom & I took a little girl’s trip to escape winter and get some sun. I’m getting married this year and I thought what better time to get away with my mama and just have some bonding time together? For those of you who don’t know, she’s also my “mom-ager” (I’ve got a Kris Jenner of my own, haha), and works so hard and does so much for me! I wanted to treat her to a little getaway where we could just relax and laugh. We wanted something quick and easy so we decided to go to the Dominican Republic (only about a 4-hour flight from Toronto) and stay at an all-inclusive. The Level at Melia Caribe caught our eye right away — from the beautiful beach to the resort’s vibe.

For 7 days we swam in the ocean, rented a little cabana bed on the beach to nap, ate an abundance of lobster, ordered our favourite drinks (Blue Level, Dirty Monkey, Mimosas and of course, Pina Coladas). We also treated ourselves to a little spa day at YHI on the resort and also relaxed in our in-room jacuzzi which was a nice treat at the end of each day. We didn’t do much else other than soak up the sun, but if you have any questions about this resort please let me know in the comments below!
