Alison’s Friday Favorites

Let’s title this week’s Friday Favorites Mexico, Meat, Moto Jackets and Menswear!  On that random note, let’s just jump right in, shall we?

If you’re new around here, Alison’s Friday Favorites is a weekly list of anything that makes my life a little easier, prettier or happier.  Here are a few things that checked those boxes this week.

Favorite #1 – MEXICO!

Last week we spent spring break at Grand Residences, an all-inclusive resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico (about 25 minutes south of Cancun).  This was our second stay so I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the hype of the last time we went.

Thankfully, it did.  The weather was a little crazy with some rain and wind but for the most part it was beautiful.  We got to truly relax and not worry about having to do a thing for ourselves. The water was a little rough so the girls only got to swim in the ocean one day but they got to spend a lot of time at the pool.

See this scene below?  That’s exactly where my butt had an appointment with the lounge chair all week!

And for those of you who asked to see my black mesh one-piece swimsuit in real life, here’s a pic.  I love it so much!



Favorite #2 – Fogo de Chao (Meat!)

As if we didn’t have enough to eat at the all-inclusive resort all week, when we got back we were treated to a night out at the new Fogo de Chao location that recently opened in Uptown Dallas.  Rough life, huh?  🙂

But seriously, it was an awesome experience.  If you haven’t been before, Fogo de Chao is a Brazilian steakhouse with an amazing selection of salads, artisan meats and cheese, soups and the most delicious little cheese rolls in the world.  But the main event is the meat prepared in the churrasco style.  There’s a selection of steaks, chicken, pork and seafood.  You just flip your card from red to green and the servers magically appear to slice samples of each meat for you!   Our service, food and experience were nothing short of spectacular.

My sister Andrea and brother-in-law Victor were able to join us too.  It was nice to catch up on life with them and enjoy an evening out. (Craig is missing from pic because he was taking it!)

Favorite #3 – Moto Jackets

The link I provided for a dupe for my moto jacket from Wednesday’s post sold out pretty much immediately.  But I did some more digging around this week to find other options.  If you aren’t able to get mine from Stitch Fix, you can also check out this great dupethis faux suede one, this striped one and this plus sized one.  It’s the perfect spring layering piece!


 Favorite #4 – Menswear Spring Bootcamp
