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 …

ARUBA | GARDEN FRESH

So, I’ve started my diet again. Training hard at the gym and getting ready not only for carnival season but for every season. Looking and feeling good should always be a priority in your life. Garden Fresh is the best option when it comes to eating fit and fresh in Aruba, also the most hip and fashionable healthy restaurant, which is always a plus. They serve a wide range of smoothies and juices. The morning sunshine smoothie to me is one of the best, my favorite I have to say. There’s a wide variety of healthy food, there’s wraps and paninis, you have salads as well. Create your own salad is the best option for me, especially at night… now that I am on a zero carb diet I can just go there, pick my favorite protein (usually chicken) and then ask for the veggies I like. It’s a life saver to be honest and they don’t sell anything that could be a temptation… like coca cola, you know? Things that are not supposed to …
