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;)
As the weeks pass by, (I won’t lie) it gets harder and harder to keep up, and post on the blog, especially since I am planning my Barcelona trip (can’t wait to be back home)! But if you want to keep up with my adventures please follow me on Instagram! If you already follow me on it, you would know by now that these Nike Athea Air Maxx are my latest splurge (and I literally cannot take them off), you would also know that my style is a bit compromised due to my growing belly therefore dresses are my best friend;) This high low dress from Target is easy breezy, which is why this comfy chic look works to perfection for my evening city strolls with my hubby;)
My hubby’s style is one of the many wonderful traits that made me fall for him:) Here he is answering work emails (or texting friends about soccer;) While he was busy doing that I managed to steal a few shots, to share his casual style with all of you! I’m tempted to get those Converse high tops for myself…
For us pregnant ladies it isn’t always simple to find garments that we can wear comfortably yet stylishly, and if you are anything like me those curves don’t make it any easier;) So I have taken it upon myself to search and research for the best options and of course share it with all of you. Shopbop has definitely been one of my favourite destinations this pregnancy, they really have a quality variety of Maternity garments, that I can also wear post pregnancy! One of the best maternity lines they carry is HATCH, their designs and fabrics are beautifully chic, and this summer they carry these beautiful pastel colors which makes me so happy! Hope you enjoy my picks…
