  • Hot Cartagena Vibes

    If you need a quick break from life come with me to Cartagena, Colombia one of South America’s gems. The city is filled with magical corners that capture your soul, founded in 1933 by Spanish conquerors; it still holds historical and beautiful sights with a touch of chic and sophistication. I stayed at the beautiful hotel San Lazaro, in front of the historic Castillo San Felipe and talked to some locals about places I should see and where I should eat. During my trip I discovered amazing places, including hidden treasured spots by locals that I’ll reveal to you.

    Why Cartagena- History! Beach!! Food! No wonder Europeans and Americans flock to the beautiful shores of Cartagena.

  • Designer Of The Month

    For the month of June I’ll be walking the streets of my city in heels with a drink in hand and my Chloe bag in the shoulder. I have chosen Chloe as designer of the month because it was the go-to bag at Coachella’s Music Festival and the brand’s history inspires women to be fearless and follow their dreams. Chloe has recently been the it-girls pick from Kendall Jenner to Victoria Secret’s Angel Alessandra Ambrosio so it’s only right that we get on board with the trend.

  • Skinny Mini

    Get ready for Spring 2016 and walk into the season of the mini bags. Not so long ago, luxury brands showed us that oversized bags were better but today it is all about the mini handbag. I live for mini bags! I’m not a super fan of big bags since they tend to be a bit heavy and I struggle to find my keys at times. Mini bags are my current obsession, they are useful for daytime and I can easily dress them up at night. Luxury brands skyrocketed their prices preventing entry-level costumers to have access to their high-end bags. Thankfully, they realized they could expand their market to entry-level costumers opening doors of endless possibilities. As a mini bag lover I made a special guide for you so that you can rock the mini.
