Las Noches

Oasis Palm Night5

Our nights in Mexico consisted of dining on some delicious Mexican dishes, walking about the resort as we felt the light ocean breeze, grabbing a drink or two at the sushi bar and just enjoying each other’s company. A bit boring, I know.  But we decided to leave the clubbing night scene for next time.

Isla Mujeres

It’s never that simple to pick something right to wear at the beach. At least not for me. Especially if it calls for something that works both on the sand and the surroundings. This was a day of exploring around Isla Mujeres (a 20-min ferry ride from Cancun). We grabbed a golf cart and drove around the island to see what we could discover. Never in my life have I seen such crystal clear blue ocean.

It’s been a while since I last shared an outfit post here. One of the reasons being lack of time. In Cancun I had enough time to spare and since my husband and I carried the camera everywhere, we managed to capture shots that will help compose just a few outfit posts. On this particular day we lounged at a beautiful park known as xcaret. For the hot and sunny weather, I wore something light and casual enough to walk around as we explored the area. Swimsuit underneath, of course!

Two days ago my husband and I returned from what we’ve agreed was a second honeymoon. Cancun was extremely relaxing and indulging. It was our first all-inclusive experience and I’ve gotta say, not too shabby! Most of our days were spent laying out in the sun and bravely diving into the mexican cousine. When I shut my eyes I can still see the turquoise blue water and feel the ice cold pinã colada wrapped in my hand. Dream of paradise!

Holiday Cheer

I can’t believe it’s already less than a week till Christmas! Thankfully I’ve been listening to a lot of Michael Buble Holiday playlist so Christmas won’t slip by.

There’s nothing more cozy than popping a bottle of wine open while listening to our favorite records. Elliott and I always contemplated the idea of owing an old record player and most recently we found this great refurbished number on Etsy.

How about you? Any fun Christmas traditions to help spread holiday cheer?


Maybe

Ready for something new? I’ve been wanting to do a video like this for ages and now that I did I’m very excited (and embarrassed at the same time if that’s even possible) to share it with you. “Maybe” by Ingrid Michaelson is one of my favorite tunes and one I enjoy singing too. If you were expecting Christmas carols I’m sorry to disappoint. I did record one, however my external hard drive misbehaved causing me to lose the whole file. And then I almost died (of sadness for having lost the whole  file).  But I guess it wasn’t meant to be. So ladies and gents, here you go (I hope you like it):

I’ve been photographed by my husband for so long now that working with another photographer definitely threw me for a loop. Everything changes and it definitely reflects on the outcome. In a good way.  (My husband’s photos are great, really, but it’s nice to change things up once in a while)  These photos were part of a photo shoot for Francisco Rojas, a quite talented gentleman. I’ll be posting them here in a series of three, maybe four and as always, you’re welcome to let me know your thoughts!
