How Did I Land a Vacay that was All Expense Paid?

Litty again, litty again! Tory Lanez voice!

So I was on a sponsored trip to Loreto, Mexico where I covered Celebrity Pastry Chef Week at the Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto

The Villa del Palmar is a gorgeous resort, it's surrounded by mountains and water. Equipped with multiple restaurants, a luxury spa,  and a gym, it was so much fun!  The food at Villa del Palmar was so yummy, the tuna tartar was the best poolside treat! I ate everything which I know my trainer is going to make me pay for.

Loreto is a tiny city located on the Gulf of California in eastern Baja California Sur state, Mexico. There were no Black people in this city. Just me. Black women when you start to travel, your beauty will be revered. Don't let the boys in your hood tell you, you aren't beautiful. I was giving life at the resort.

For four days, I ate desserts made by Johnny Iuzzini from "Top Chef: Just Desserts," and Devin Alexander from "The Biggest Loser" while Jonathan Bennett of "Cupcake Wars" hosted. Johnny made the best banana foster fritters but I think he really had a thing for chocolate.


The resort has so many activities and gorgeous views. True Story: we took a boat out and went snorkeling at Carmen Island. We get to Carmen Island for snorkeling and I see something big and dark and I'm OUT! I then swim right into rock. My nail comes off. And the big, dark thing I saw? Another rock. I watch too many shark and ocean documentaries.

The trip was amazing tho! I met some of the coolest bloggers who were also covering Celebrity Pastry Chef Week at the Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto
