Miami Open 2015 Essentials

Today marks week two of the Miami Open, where style meets sports! As an avid tennis fan, I live in Key Biscayne these two weeks, it is one of my favorite events of the year. Everyone should try to make it out to the event or watch it on TV. Get to see some of the world’s best players and Vogue’s April cover girl, Serena Williams. If you manage to attend, here are some essentials I take every day.

1. Sunglasses

2. Hats to protect your face from Miami’s strong sun.

3. A Ball and Sharpie because tennis players are walking around the venue and you might just get a quick picture and ask them for their autograph.

4. A Hand Fan because it gets really hot!!

5. A Face Towel to wipe off the sweat and/or cover your seat in case it is too hot.

6. Sunscreen (very important) to protect your skin and avoid farmers tans and sunburns.

7. Facial Mist is great to add some moisture and replenish the skin.

8. Water is most important! Stay hydrated and avoid getting a heat stroke.

Have lots of fun!! Check the weather to make sure you are prepared for rain or sun. Comment below if you have any questions and I hope to see you there.

So my vacation has sadly come to an end. I’ve had an amazing time here in Colombia and I’m finally tan, but I am excited to go home.

Since I was at the beach and on the boat for the majority of the days in Cartagena, taming my wild, curly hair wasn’t easy. If you’re like me, you probably wish you could have a glam squad with you at all times; however, I enjoyed the natural look. I allowed my skin and hair to breathe and take a vacation of their own. I made sure to protect my skin with SPF and load my hair up with coconut oil. The coconut oil increased the health and shine of my hair dramatically. I recommend using it once or twice a month for all hair types, but make sure wash it out with shampoo after.

Now, I love this beach cover up from Forever 21. It’s easy to throw on after getting out of the water. It is minimal coverage; however, it is chic, comfortable and far from vulgar. I am not such a fan of flip-flops, so these nude, plastic flats are a stylish alternative. Since they are plastic, they can get wet and are easy to wash; perfect for any beach, pool or boating event. Lastly, you can’t forget a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes and avoid squinting.

Happy New Year to everyone! It’s crazy how fast time is flying and soon before we know it, it will already be 2016. With that being said, my goal is to enjoy and embrace every moment to the fullest, as if it were my last.

This year, my family and I spent the holidays on a farm and disconnected ourselves from the rest of the world. We spent a day in this little community/town, known as “Cauca Viejo,” which is full of houses that have the same construction, however, different accent colors. It was so nice shooting in such a colorful, rustic scenery. On this hot sunny day, I wore a white sheer button down and white sequins shorts. It was a very effortless look that helped me stay cool and chic. I added a minimal pop of color with this side purse and let the colors of the city shine.

If you ever end up in this little town, you have to get a “salpicon con helado”: a fruit salad with a ball of ice cream.. SO GOOD! I’ve gone there many times since I was little and it’s the best. I always get one!

Thank you for all the love and support and stay strong with those new year resolutions.

Carry On Essentials

 

Since many people are traveling for the holidays, I thought I would share with you my top ten carry on essentials that make flying easier.

Before anything, I highly recommend a comfortable “Mary Poppins” purse where you can fit everything. A Longchamp is the perfect traveling purse.

1. Magazines & Books to keep you entertained while you wait and fly.

2. Headphones so you can listen to music and not have to borrow/buy the airline’s headphones.

3. A Camera so you can photograph memories from beginning to end.

4. A Sweater or Jacket to stay warm and cozy on the flight.

5. Snacks to munch on just incase the flight doesn’t offer food or it just sucks.

6. Sneakers are a must when traveling for me. They are comfortable and easy.

7. A Portable USB Charger so you never run out of battery on the flight.

8. A Big Wallet to carry your passport, money, papers and pen. A pen is always helpful when traveling just incase you need to fill out papers.

9. Sunglasses to cover eye bags after a long flight or to just pop them on when you get in the car.

10. A Cosmetics Bag to carry beauty essentials such as moisturizers to avoid dry skin, wet wipes to clean up a mess, and/or makeup to touch up before landing.

Have a safe flight,
