I have always liked travelling, the idea of taking a plane and waking up in another city excites me. Since becoming single I have always dreaded the idea of travelling by myself. But don’t get me wrong I love my time alone it gives me time to think, but for me usually travel included a companion.
Living the fear behind I booked a plane ticket to NYC. I know this city well, so it felt like home. Walking up and down Madison Ave, I did a little shopping, I reconnected with a few friends that I haven’t seen in a while, I had a nice meal at a trendy restaurant by myself and went to the MET to see a fashion exhibit.
With all and all I got over the fear of travelling alone and I have already booked my next flight.
While cleaning out my closet over the weekend I noticed that I have a bunch of little black dresses, many that I don’t wear anymore, like this paneled one from BCBGMAXAZRIA. I had forgotten I had this dress, it was one of my favorite ones when I got it a few years ago. But re-descovering that old dress in the darkest corner of the closet made me happy and I’m giving it another spin in life.

Sometimes I feel that I don’t go back home enough. I love my hometown but most of my family lives in Miami, so I only go back very little. On my recent visit to Santo Domingo I was feeling a little nostalgic. I visited the Zona Colonial, this is the area where I went to fine art school and where I spent most of my time doing studies while in architecture school. This part of the city holds a special place in my heart, walking thru the narrow cobblestone roads, surrounded by the coral stone and brick old buildings with beautiful rustic doors, made me remember of a time where things where more simple.
For this outing I was wearing a comfy outfit perfect for the tropical climate, khaki short shorts, an embossed fabric crop top and slip-ons to walk around.
This Saturday, join me at West Elm at Dadeland for a locals Pop-up shop in store from 1-5 pm. Come by say hi! Shop my illustrations prints and meet me. I will be giving some tips on how to create your own gallery wall using the West elm frames and my artwork.
I think I’m an open minded girl. When I started this blog one of my no-no’s was to style and show off swimwear. But don’t get me wrong I’m very happy with my curvy body, but come on in reality every girl is somewhat self-conscious. Aside from that I wanted to share as part of my little vacation to Las Terrenas in Dominican Republic, this super cute one-piece from ROXY Swimwear. I had seen it on last years Miami Swim Week’s private showing for ROXY, and I adored the sunset yellow, oranges and purple colors against silhouetted palm trees, this represents everything a tropical vacation is!
You know how much I love my arm candy, curating it to perfection to enhance my outfits. I think I own more bracelets than any other jewelry accessory. I have partnered up with CHARRIOL a luxury fine jewelry and accessories brand from Geneva, Switzerland, to show you how much fun their newest colorful line Forever Young Cable Bangles are. These whimsical bangles and bracelets inspired me to draw a fairy tale like girls playing around the collection. Continue reading →
Wearing too many frills may look a little fru fru, I prefer to wear subtle ruffles, so when I saw this cute playsuit romper at local miami store I SHINE 365, I needed to have it.
The frills give it a feminine look and the low v-neck which makes it a super sexy outfit, maybe for a date night or a night out. Also as it is so short, I wanted to give my legs some focus and wore it with Schutz lace up sandals with tassels, along with a yellow bag (to give it a pop) and some dainty jewelry.
PS. Also how cute is my white and navy dots mani… some of my girlfriends are saying they look like dominoes. What do you think?
Last thursday i got the chance to meet Bobbi Brow PRO team artist Rogelio Reyna, while he gave me and some other bloggers a private preview of the Makeup Lessons and gave us some really cool make up tips. I am amazed by the quantity of colors of lipstick that Bobbi Brown has and felt a little inspired and drew this illustration. Continue reading →
