Promod End of Season SALE

If there’s one thing I love, its a big sale at my favorite, go-to store (Promod). Since becoming a mom, I’ve learned to be smart about money, so I try to avoid making purchases when they’re not yet on sale (unless, of course, I fall completely in love with it). Which is why I look forward to sale season because then I can maximize my money and buy so much more than I would if everything were regular price.


Now is actually the best time to shop, because most of the items for sale are from the spring collection. Which means there are plenty of printed bright tops and dresses to choose from and they are warm enough to wear the whole year round. Yay to our tropical weather!


When I shop, I am always on the lookout for closet staples I can wear over and over again and mix and match with my wardrobe. These are classic designs that stand the test of time, and can be worn in more ways than one (nope, I’m not the the type to wear an outfit only once–each item has to be super versatile).


But when I see a standout print or color that is in trend, I make sure to snap it up too (if the price is right). Adding a few trendy pieces is the best way to update your wardrobe. Also, be on the lookout for great accessories like scarves or earrings–they can instantly add style to your outfits!

To those of you looking for a good deal, PROMOD is currently having their End of Season SALE!!! I went last week and found so many cute outfits that all pass my criteria–they are wearable but stylish, versatile, and figure-flattering. Super winner! ❤️

Travel Diary: Paris

The last time I was in Paris, I had just turned 18 years old. I was there with my mom for my birthday, and we took a very hectic tour of Western Europe so we were in town for only two nights. This time around, I was with my husband Carlos and baby Tristan and we stayed for a good week. All I can say is: what a difference a relaxed itinerary makes! We were able to explore the city at our own pace and get a glimpse of what its like to live there.

We skipped the museums (and pretty much any place with a line) and instead spent our time cooking at home (the ingredients available to us were just amazing), relaxing at parks, shopping, and dining in cafes. We were extra careful in terms of security, as we have heard of many stories of pickpockets and petty crimes being done to tourists (which is why we skipped taking the Metro and just took Uber everywhere). But it was all good. We still enjoyed walking around the city (be wary of which arrondissement you’re in though).

Paris really is quite beautiful, no matter what the season. And you will see that in our photos–we explored the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and Montmartre but there are so many other places to see. One week is not enough! ❤

If you love anything homegrown and local, this is definitely THE PLACE for you to shop. POP by Retail Lab is a shopaholic’s paradise! It is a great place to discover and support local brands–there are just so many amazing finds here and I assure you, you will never run out of things to buy. The 300-square meter space is home to over a hundred homegrown brands and you can find anything from trendy clothes to bags and shoes, swimsuits, hard-to-find beauty products, healthy but tasty snacks, perfume, accessories, gadgets, home organizers and many, many more.

I was planning to drop by to check it out and ended up spending nearly two hours here (and I didn’t even feel the time pass by). What a fun, cool place to shop! ❤

Into the Blue

       

I was onboard a yacht recently for a new project I am working on (I’ll be announcing it very soon) and absolutely loved being at sea. I haven’t gone to the beach in awhile so this was definitely a treat for someone as seawater-deprived as myself. I wore my favorite blue dress from H&M and felt as calm and peaceful as the ocean before me. I paired it with leather sandals from Annie & Lori (available at POP Retail Store in Glorietta 3) and earrings from H&M. ❤

Our Airbnb flat in Paris

      

Our Parisian Airbnb flat was a dream. It was stylish, spacious, comfortable and accessible. We had a wonderful time in Paris, thanks to this apartment. And we had an especially easy time taking care of Tristan because it was family-friendly and it had a kiddie room full of toys. We love this flat–it was so homey. The owners actually live here but they went on vacation so they decided to rent it out on Airbnb. I don’t think you’ll be able to find it on the site if you search for it but there are so many other flats like this in Paris, you really just have to look.

I am such a fan of Airbnb, I really try my best to spread the word and promote it for travel. And so far, so good! I’ve stayed in more than a few apartments and they have all been quite good, with some really exceeding my expectations. My wish is for everyone to have the same positive experience with Airbnb, which is why I am giving you a discount for your next booking.
