“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul”Three years have gone by, like the blink of an eye, today marks our 3 years of marriage, and soon September will also mark the birth of our little baby girl. So we can truly view this month as our lucky one! I love going through our wedding album, and every time I do I fall in love all over again with our day (eventhough I always tell my hubby we will have another wedding party for our 5th anniversary;). It is truly a challenge to put into words, not only how lucky I feel, but also our road to today, to how our love and relationship has blossomed, from being two young dreamers to growing together as friends, lovers, and becoming the family that we are. I look back at our relationship as a story, one that has endured many struggles, has broken many boundaries both cultural and religious, but has always stayed strong like a rock! Along the way there was always a bond, love, joy, friendship, loyalty, patience, understanding, tolerance and mutual respect! Here I share some of our wedding photographs shot by the talented Dominique Fierro, in Hotel Arts Barcelona.
The countdown has officially begun for me (Im 35 weeks), as I am less than five weeks away from my due date! So many emotions and feelings creep up on a daily basis (if not on an hourly basis), those of you who have been pregnant, or are at the moment, you get it right? Luckily I am back home in Barcelona, with my family and friends, and have all the support in the world, the only missing piece is my hubby, who will be joining me next week! So that´s a shorter countdown, one week and he is here, which gives us time to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary as well as enjoy a little us time before our baby girl joins our little family… The days seem to go by slowly, because well I am way heavier, it is way too hot, and as you can imagine these last weeks are tougher in every way. And as I´ve mentioned before, the only thing I can manage to wear are maxi dresses, my Havaïanas, and that is all, it blows my mind when I see pregnant women that fit into anything at the end of their pregnancies, it´s impressive, but I am definitely not one of those women (swollen is my new nickname)… Therefore as I mentioned in my previous post, I have decided to splurge on bags, and especially pick ones that are comfortable (not too heavy), and will be great to carry around when I have a baby in my arms or am carrying a stroller. So I picked the Stella Mccartney Falabella bag, and cannot wear any other bag at the moment, definitely a great buy! And well I cannot wait till I get my hands on more bags I have eyed;) Wishing you all a great weekend, and hopefully I will get to post a few more times before life gets busier…
It´s been a year since last time I visited home (Barcelona), or saw my family, friends and my city! So words aren´t really enough (or necessary) for you all to imagine the feeling of finally being here, seeing and embracing all my loved ones, and of course the emotions are higher than ever since I am pregnant and my family got to see me for the first time with my baby bump! I was so nervous about traveling on my own such a long distance, and so many hours, but luckily everything went smoothly, except as you can imagine my belly didn´t really allow me to be comfortable on the flight;) But it was all worth it! After settling a bit in Barcelona, I took another (short) flight to Menorca with my mom and nephews to join the other half of the family! My brother with his (pregnant) wife, and two beautiful daughters. We had the best time spending a week at a beautiful resort, with beautiful ocean views, complete seclusion, and absolutel peace! It´s also really cool that I get to be pregnant with my sister in law, we are the same week (34), and we are both expecting a baby girl… Exciting moments to share… Oh and before I forget to mention, I have absolutely no idea how women can wear anything and everything they want towards the end of the pregnancy, because quite frankly I have been living on maxi dresses, like this one… Therefore this month I have decided to splurge on Fall bags, will be sharing which ones on the blog!
Exactamente hace un año que no llego a casa (Barcelona), o veo a mi familia y amigos! Asi que os podeis imaginar el porque no he tenido ni un momento para subir un post! Entre viajes, de DC a Barcelona, de Barcelona a Menorca, y de vuelta a Barcelona, solo he tenido tiempo para tranquilizarme estos ultimos dias! Y de repente ya estoy en la semana 34 del embarazo, ya queda poquito! Pero aqui os dejo con algunas imagenes de Menorca, ya subire mas, pero era simplemente para contaros que estoy disfrutando de cada momento. Y por cierto las mujeres que estan las ultimas semanas del embarazo y siguen poniendose lo que les da la gana, tienen muchisima suerte, porque yo solo sobrevivo con mis vestidos maxi, como este;)! Asi que he decidido gastar en bolsos este mes;)!
I am not an avid user of different shades/foundation, I stick to what I know and where my comfort zone is, which is my Armani silk foundation. But when Almay sent me their new Smart Shade to try, I could not resist! Because who wouldn’t want to try a foundation, that adjusts to your skintone? It is not your typical foundation, it almost seems like you are applying a moisturizer that adapts to your skintone, and leaves your complexion looking flawless and natural! This foundation comes only in three shades and no more, all you need to know is where yours skin fits within those, light, light-medium (that’s my shade), medium. I love that this skintone matching makeup, leaves my skin looking natural all day, and doesn’t feel or look like I am wearing a layer of makeup. This is definitely a beauty product I would recommend all year round, which is why I have it in my bag, ready to fly to Barcelona with me;) Because that is where I am headed to today, will keep you all posted on Barcelona my travels and my baby bump;)!
Another week, a new list of Maternity picks;) Isabella Oliver is a UK maternity line, which I have fallen in love with. It truly embodies an essence of chic comfort for us mother’s to be, to not only feel comfortable but keep up with our style (for those of us who care of course)! Since my due date is early Fall, I have already eyed my Fall garments from their pre-collection, and these pieces have got me covered;)
