let's get candid.

Hey gorgeous, welcome to The Candid Millennial! This is a place where we’re going to be honest and real about life as millennial women. Let’s start here: life isn’t so simple these days. Between wanting to make the money we deserve, raise a family, all while looking good and feeling good, life can get busy and out of control. My name is Mary and I am passionate about inspiring YOU: the modern millennial woman, to push past pitfalls, to make mistakes, to challenge yourself, to grow and to follow your dreams while learning to love yourself!

This photo was taken 4 hours before the storm that surprised Dallas. I’d be lying if I said I’m a “cool girl”.

Nizuc Spa & Resort

Our stay at Nizuc Resort & Spa was a dream come true. It truly is the perfect resort to visit if you’re looking to slow down for a while and immerse yourself in a luxurious travel experience. Each one of the six restaurants on the property feature meals planned and prepared by award-winning chefs.

My favorite moments included a tequila flight tasting paired with the perfect fruit and treat, a complimentary snorkeling excursion on a boat just off the shore of our beach, and the most amazing spa with an exceptional aqua therapy experience.

I’m doing something I’ve been told not to do, which is combining several categories in one blog! #Guilty

While we talk about all things related to career and growth, the outfits in my posts are strategically chosen based on the topic.

When it comes to clothes, finding outfits that flatter my figure has been a struggle for most of my life!

At 5’5″, I’m not petite, tall, or plus size. I’m blessed with a booty and short torso. After realizing I wasn’t the only woman who faces this challenge, I wanted to do something about it!

I genuinely want to help YOU – the woman who also struggles with finding cute outfits that flatter your beautiful, hourglass-shaped body.
