We have officially reached hellish temperatures in DC, and that is no picnic when you are 25 weeks pregnant (or even if you’re not pregnant)! Therefore I haven’t been outside much these days, basically hiding under the AC and keeping busy, fixing the house, and other things to keep me occupied! And of course I still have some looks, I wanted to share from my last trip to Miami and stay at the Eden Roc Miami. This was the outfit I wore for my Birthday dinner, as simple basic tank top (with cross back) with a Zara black lace skirt (hugging my curves), and Rachelle Celine jewelry. Don’t mind my crazy hair, as I have mentioned before it is OUT OF CONTROL any time I go to Miami.
Las temperaturas en DC han llegado a niveles de terror, y para una mujer embarazada es oficialmente una pesadilla! Por eso no he salido mucho de casa estos dias, preferiblemente escondiendome de esta calor, ocupandome de la casa, y otras cositas que me entretienen mientras disfruta del aire acondicionado! Pero como no aun tengo algunos looks de mi ultimo viaje a Miami, y aqui teneis el look que me puse para mi cena de cumpleaños! Espero que os guste…
Does time fly for you guys as fast as it does for me? I am not complaining, on the contrary I cannot wait for September to arrive;) In the meantime I am enjoying the summer weather (before it get’s humid and unbearable). I enjoy dresses, gold accents to my looks, the summer breeze, ice cream, watermelon, outdoor sittings, seeing friends and family, the kicks in my belly that keep getting stronger, and Carbs! Yes I am indulging in carbs, because I (like probably some of you), have been carb deprived since my mid teenage years, so now it’s a carb party for me till this baby arrives:) Which is why I get comfy pieces to wear, like this Asos striped mini bandeau dress, with a touch of summer gold by layering Rachelle Celine’s necklaces and stacking her subtle and romantic rings!
El tiempo se os pasa volando igual que a mi? No es que me queje, al reves no puedo esperar a que llegue Septiembre;)! Por el momento estoy disfrutando al tope del verano (antes de que empieza la humedad de DC). Estoy disfrutando de los vestiditos, accesorios de oro, la brisa del verano, helados, sandilla, terracitas y cafecitos, quedando con amigas, y las patatidas que siento en mi vientre;)! Espero que os guste este look con vestido bandeau de Asos, y joyeria de Rachelle Celine!
This past weekend was filled with fun and celebrations, it was my 31st birthday and my hubby decided to whisk me away to Miami, for a relaxing babymoon/birthday celebration! We were both so aware that this would be the last time we were going on vacation “just the two of us”, meaning without having to worry about a little one (even if it will be just the two of us, we will always be thinking of our little one wherever we go without her). So as you can imagine it was as romantic as it gets, we stayed at the Eden Roc resort, had breakfast in bed every morning, walked down to the beach, and made it a must to be complete beach bums with ocean view lunches, and beautiful sunsets! I think I was a mermaid in another lifetime;) Regarding this big hat you see, with my pregnancy I have developed some serious sun spot damage (which I like to call my Dalí moustache), and though I wear more than enough sun block on a daily basis, I need more than that to protect my face from the sun! So amongst my many skincare/sun protection products (a must with Miami’s sun) I got this Necessary Clothing hat, which is fantastic for sun block! And while I was shopping for the hat I got a few more pieces (why not?), like these Fiesta Shorts and this romantic tank to complete the look;)
It’s a GIRL! We could not be more excited! She has the most beautiful little profile, and ever since we found out I have bonded with her so much more, constantly thinking of who she will look like, what her personality will be like, she will be a Libra just like her daddy, so I am certain (and hopeful) she will be like him:) Today I am officially 23 Weeks pregnant (in normal language, I am almost 6 months pregnant, time flies)! We were so anxious to find out what our little one was going to be, a boy or a girl, and it feels so beautiful to know. Although I have to admit I had crazy vivid pregnancy dreams, where I was always holding a baby girl, but who doesn’t have crazy vivid dreams when pregnant right? So why would I believe my dreams?! Maybe it’s coincidence or maybe it’s pure motherly instinct, who knows? But this time my dreams were very true:) I was completely sure it was a boy, despite my dreams, but I have always dreamt of having a girl first, and I could not be happier. I love her so so much already, and we cannot wait to meet her. I wanted to share with you all these amazing news, so my hubby had the fun idea that we should do so with this Pharrel “GIRL” inspired image;)! Hope you guys like it…
Es una NIÑA! Y no podriamos estar mas ilusionados y felices! Hoy cumplo oficialmente 23 semanas de embarazada (casi 6 meses, el tiempo vuela). Estabamos tan ansiosos por descubrir lo que teniamos, y todo este tiempo tuve sueño despues de sueño que tenia una niña en mis brazos, igual es pura coincidencia o simplemente instincto de madre, quien sabe? Pero la felicidad es inmensa:)! Queria compartir este noticion con vosotros, y mi marido tuvo la divertida idea de hacerlo con esta imagen inspirada por Pharrell y su single “GIRL”. Espero que os guste:)!
I am getting ready for my Birthday/Baby Moon romantic Miami getaway with my hubby, and the first thing that comes to mind is Beauty Essentials! I love packing with a plan, it all starts in my head, I mentally prepare my looks, as well as my beauty products, and pack accordingly which always works for me. This way I rarely overpack, don’t forget anything I truly need, and can relax while enjoying the sun (though it seems it’s gonna be a stormy weekend, boohoo). Here are some of my favourite beauty essentials when I travel, what’s my criteria? Must keep my skin hydrated, don’t wanna wash my hair too often (I’m a believer of not washing your hair on a daliy basis, that will be covered on another post), rested/fresh eyes!
