CONTEXT SKIN CARE

So… many of you always ask me If i wear sunscreen. What do I do to keep my skin looking good, or if I’m taking care of it. Two months ago, and I’m a little ashamed to say it, because I have these Context products for over two months now that are waiting to be reviewed. A good instafriend of mine sent them to me, it’s a new company he said, just try them he insisted. But for me, to be able to review a skin care product you really need to use it and try it and I don’t think a week or two is enough time to determine if it is a good product. After 2 months using it almost every night, and I say almost because sometimes weekends I forget (I also forget to take my clothes off… You know what I mean…) I can tell you it is a great kit to take care of your face. I have the night cream, I use it after washing my face with the …

WHAT’S GOOD? GARDEN FRESH | ARUBA

So… I’m exploring new flavors, which is always a good thing. Especially when we are talking about food. If we are being honest, it’s one of the best things in the world In this post I want to talk about two smoothies, “The Cure” which is the green one, this little juice here is the perfect cure for a hangover. It contains lemon juice, aloe vera, kale, green apple, and ginger… this is a bomb but a good one, that will make you feel better in no time… Have one, run on  the beach and take a swim… you’ll be feeling like a brand new person by the time you are done. You will have worked up an appetite for sure after all that exercise. My recommendation would be a burrito, you really need something that will sit good in your stomach and replenish your energy reserves. It’s packed full of protein, filled with black beans, fresh veggies. That’s a perfect lunch for someone recovering from a hangover.    Now, if you were a good …

COMPLETE A CASUAL LOOK | LV

Turtleneck sweater, Monogram Stole Square Rope and Rain Coat by Louis Vuitton, burgundy trousers by Zara. Location: Mercado Roma, Mexico City _________________________________________________________________ I had the chance to visit Mercado Roma not long ago while visiting Mexico City, it became a new favorite place to repeat next time I’m there. It’s a gourmet Market where you can eat autenthic and delicious Mexican food, you can also shop for organic products, teas, liquor, artisanal chocolate, artisanal ice cream, artisanal beer… souvenirs, books. Everything. It’s a place to visit. I had lunch there, had the most tasty burrito I’ve had in my life, made on the spot in front of your eyes. It was delicious. So.. Mexico City can get cold, and that’s another thing I love about it, temperatures don’t drop that much but enough for you to wear a nice jacket or a coat, you can wear a turtleneck sweater and add a stole if you want. It is fun for me since I can’t layer in Aruba. I love wearing fall and winter clothes when I travel. Now, the key piece of this …

A TASTE OF THE CARNIVAL BREEZE

So, I had the chance to spend a few hours on board of the massive Carnival Breeze. Obviously a few hours is not enough to enjoy the ship. You need a week, but here are my impressions and a few pictures I took. Let’s start by saying that you need a week, yes, you need a week for sure to enjoy this ship. I spent 3 hours on the lido deck having fun, because that’s what it is all about. I actually felt like a kid running up and down the amazing Lido Deck, the water slides took half my time. They were so much fun. Practically everybody left to go explore the beautiful island of Aruba, which left me with the chance to enjoy the ship by myself. It’s the perfect place to go on vacation with your kids or a group of friends. The deck has 2 pools and countless spots to relax and chairs sunbath. I think I counted 4 or 6 jacuzzis. There’s an adult area to get away from the …
