My circle of friends are all quite similar to me in the sense that they are from different backgrounds, grew up all over the world, have moved around cities and countries, and some of the attributes I love about them most is that they are adventurous, open minded, creative, and with what I consider a great eye for beauty. I think it is just natural to gravitate towards people with similar interests, and likes I guess. RYBELO is the beautiful Jewelry brand of a dear friend of mine, we met through a mutual friend when I lived in Madrid for a few months back in 2009! Milena and I instantly clicked, and we also lived shortly in Barcelona at the same time, before I got married and moved to DC. But we have always maintained our friendship, staying in touch and trying to meet whenever we can. She always had exquisite style, and a great eye for design, which is no surprise that she ended up creating her baby RYBELO, and designing beautiful pieces as the ones I am wearing in this post. Her story is truly inspiring, as she left behind a dream job in advertising to pursue a passion, and learned everything about jewelry design from the bottom to the top. I am truly picky when it comes to jewelry, just as I am I guess in everything else, but jewelry is not something I indulte myself often and when I do I like to take my time and research and find the pieces that truly speak to me so I can wear them on a day to day basis to express who I am at the moment. I also now as a mother keep in mind the fact that I will pass it on to my daughters, so I have to find the timeless pieces! With RYBELO I can truly testify that these pieces are not only timeless, but their quality and price are just what we bling addicts need:) I hope you enjoy the pieces I picked to wear and treasure, and do check out the collection it is truly beautiful. So proud of you Milena! Besos
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;)!
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…
