Omg, can I say Happy Thanksgiving already? I can't believe we are at this point, it's insane. 

 As you already know I've been spending a lot of time at home and I've been trying to keep the ''vibes'' here as cozy, homie, and boho as possible. 


 


I found this Dog Bed at Design Dua and it's just the cutest thing ever, I love it so much, It looks amazing, Pugie absolutely adores her bed, it's comfy, the pillow cover is removable so it's extremely convenient and easy to clean.  I got it in the natural shade and in size ''Medium'' Pugie's a larger Pug and the size was perfect for her. 


 If you are looking for something like this, don't look any further, the store has amazing pieces for Babies like basket bassinets, changing baskets and so much more, their aesthetic is simply delightful.








Yes yes and yes for foodie posts, right?

I'm very excited about this post because I'm collaborating once again with Kalorik, I've loved my experience with their products so I'll be sharing a bit more with you in this one as well.

 This year has been the year of #StayingAtHome which means doing and learning to do things ourselves, from decorating our homes to getting our cooking skills improved you name it, haven't we done it all by now?.  My favorite meal of the day is probably breakfast, there's something about it that makes my days start bright and sweet.








I'm a waffle kind of Gal 100%, so having a waffle maker is simply ideal, the Kalorik Easy Pour Waffle Maker cooks two round Belgian waffles at a time, it has adjustable temperatures to make waffles as soft or crispy as you like (I love them right in the middle), it's so easy to use, and the waffles are done in minutes. 

I don't have a recipe per se but I love to add sugar-free chocolate syrup, shredded coconut, and my favorite berries on top, soo delish, tell me a better way to start the day? 











Now, this is something I was really, excited about, this is hands down a total MUST in your kitchen, so convenient, so efficient, such a lifesaver, and, AND... a healthier way to eat ''fried'' food.

  I do my very best to eat as clean and healthy as I can, trying to keep a balance of course, so as you can imagine, eating healthy and wanting to keep it as a lifestyle + thinking about having fries and chicken nuggets for lunch/dinner is simply not a good equation.  


I think we all have a ''thing'' for crunchy/crispy foods and well, they usually happen to be fried, so this concept of Airfrying is just amazing in my opinion.  I was really looking forward to seeing the ''crunch'' factor and honestly, I couldn't be happier with the performance of this product. 









I got the Kalorik 5.3 Quart Digital Air Fryer XL in matte black, I absolutely LOVE IT, meals are made quicker and healthier, I haven't had to use oil at all so far, it comes with 7 smart presets, so you can fry, bake, roast or grill any recipe, it is so easy to clean, it comes with non-stick, dishwasher safe parts for hassle-free cleanup in other words, perfection! My favorite things to cook with it so far are definitely sweet potato fries, chicken breasts, chicken nuggets, and burgers, omg you need this.








Now with the Holidays around the corner, one of these buddies or both are perfect for a good Christmas gift (just saying).


If you have any recipes you'd like to share with me please let me know in the comments, I'm using these all the time.









Cheers to road-trips and relaxing times!ūü•ā 

 The hubby, Pugie and I, went to Sarasota Florida a week ago for the second time, and I just needed to share with you guys, a little something of the amazing time we had.  





¡Un brindis a los viajes por carretera y los momentos de relajaci√≥n! ūü•ā

 Mi esposo, Pugie y yo, fuimos a Sarasota Florida hace una semana por segunda vez, y ten√≠a que compartir con ustedes, aunque sea un poquito de lo bien que la pasamos.



We stayed at The Sarasota Modern Hotel big thanks to them for being so welcoming especially to our Pugie. The Hotel is simply dreamy, the best option for what we were looking for, some time OFF and some relaxing just us 3.  The room we got was simply STUNNING, we had a kitchen, a cute living, and dining area, a huge balcony with a freaking bath-tub, I KNOW, I loved it. 




Nos alojamos en The Sarasota Modern Hotel, mil gracias a ellos por ser tan acogedores, especialmente con nuestra peque√Īa gordita, Pugie. El hotel es simplemente de ensue√Īo, la mejor opci√≥n para lo que est√°bamos buscando, un tiempo OFF y un poco de relax solo para nosotros 3. La habitaci√≥n que nos dieron era simplemente IMPRESIONANTE, ten√≠amos una cocina, una linda sala de estar y un comedor, un gran balc√≥n con una ba√Īera exterior, lo s√©, una belleza! 







Can we take a moment to admire the beauty of this place?

¿Podemos tomarnos un momento para admirar la belleza de este lugar?




You can see more details about the room and our overall Sarasota Experience in my Youtube Video below:

Puedes ver más detalles sobre la habitación y nuestra experiencia en general de Sarasota en mi video de Youtube a continuación:



  We felt literally at home at The Sarasota Modern Hotel and would definitely go back, they had hand-sanitizer stations in strategic places, and you are asked to wear your mask around the installations unless you're at the pool of course and far from people sunbathing. 




En The Sarasota Modern Hotel nos sentimos literalmente como en casa y definitivamente regresar√≠amos. Ten√≠an estaciones de desinfectante de manos en lugares estrat√©gicos, y se le pide a los huespedes que usen su m√°scarillas alrededor de las instalaciones a menos que est√©n en la piscina, por supuesto y lejos de la gente mientras te bronceas.









On this occasion, we had more time to explore the city, the restaurants, and simply walk around the neighborhood. It was very lovely and the weather was just perfect. (You can see details of the food we had on the Youtube video.)



En esta ocasión, tuvimos más tiempo para explorar la ciudad, los restaurantes y simplemente caminar por el vecindario. Todo estaba hermoso y el clima estuvo perfecto. (Pueden ver detalles de la comida que tuvimos en el video de Youtube).







Visiting Siesta Key Beach was a mandatory thing to do, it's honestly one of the most beautiful beaches if not the most beautiful beach I've ever seen so far, it simply amazing. It was a need of mine to spend the afternoon there and watch the sunset with my husband, something I really and highly encourage you to do if you ever get the chance to visit. It's a very wonderful and magical moment. We had some wine, played our chill beach playlist on Spotify, had some snacks, almost wrestled with some seagulls (you can see that in the video haha), and had the most amazing time together, the sweetest scape from work, politics and whatever was happening outside our bubble back then.




Visitar Siesta Key Beach era algo obligatorio, honestamente, es una de las playas más hermosas, si no la más hermosa que he visto hasta ahora, es simplemente increíble. Era una necesidad mía pasar la tarde allí y ver la puesta de sol con mi esposo, algo que realmente te animo a hacer si alguna vez tienes la oportunidad de visitar. Es un momento maravilloso y mágico. Tomamos un poco de vino, pusimos nuestra nuestro ''chill'' playlist en Spotify, comimos algunos snacks, casi luchamos con algunas gaviotas (se puede ver en el video jaja), y la pasamos de maravilla juntos, ''the sweetest scape'' del trabajo, la política y lo que sea que estaba sucediendo fuera de nuestra burbuja en ese entonces.









Let's keep it FASHION related today, shall we? haha! You know me and my dresses have been a thing for a long time now, I personally LOVE  FreePeople, their style is without a doubt amazing, I own a whole lot of their pieces, there's something about their boho-chic vibe that's irresistible to me.  I've been into neutrals a lot for a while in this was simply ideal, perfect for fall if you ask me, especially if you live in tropical-not-wintery-places.




Manteng√°moslo relacionado con la MODA hoy, les parece? ¡jaja! Saben que mis vestidos y yo hemos estado teniendo una muy buena relaci√≥n durante mucho tiempo, a mi personalmente ME ENCANTA FreePeople su estilo es sin duda incre√≠ble, tengo muchas de sus piezas, hay algo en sus boho-chic vibes que es irresistible para m√≠. . He estado  inclinada en usar tonos neutros durante un tiempo, este look era simplemente ideal, perfecto para el oto√Īo si me preguntas, especialmente si vives en lugares tropicales y no invernales.


 You can find these beautiful pieces at Lulus which is pretty much where I shop the most. I'll leave all the pieces I'm wearing down below so you can shop them directly, I'm sure you will rock them as well!

Hey everyone!


Back in October, I had the opportunity to go to Punta Cana with my family, we are Dominicans so it was not a major ''trip'' that required a big budget or preparation by any means. I know traveling, in general, can be quite ''controversial'' since not everyone still feels fully comfortable going to dinner outside or even buying groceries so I won't even mention airports, airplanes, hotels, and such. 



¡Hola a todos!

En octubre, tuve la oportunidad de ir a Punta Cana con mi familia, somos dominicanos por lo que no fue un gran “viaje” que requiriera un gran presupuesto o preparaci√≥n de ninguna manera. S√© que viajar, en general, puede ser bastante "controversial", ya que no todo el mundo todav√≠a se siente completamente c√≥modo yendo a cenar o incluso ir al super, as√≠ que ni mencionar aeropuertos, aviones, hoteles, etc.



 I already have been in all of the above and even though it's a little stressful to be mindful of everything and being extra careful with what you do with your hands, your mask, and how distant you have to be from other people, I honestly feel like as long as you take care of yourself and are responsible about the required measures you have to take in order to be safe in public you should go ahead and live your life, we are probably very tired about the ''New Normal'' but Oh, well, it's true. 




Ya he experimentado todo lo anterior y aunque es un poco estresante estar atento a todo y ser muy cuidadoso con lo que haces con tus manos, tu m√°scarilla y lo distante que tienes que estar de otras personas, honestamente siento que siempre y cuando te cuides y seas responsable de las medidas necesarias que debes tomar para estar seguro en p√ļblico, debes seguir adelante y vivir tu vida, probablemente estamos muy cansados ​​de la '' Nueva Normalidad '',  pero, es la realidad.





We went to Punta Cana with one purpose only, to RELAX, to enjoy each others company, spending quality time together, and to try as much as possible not to think about COVID and all the things that COVID has made hard-impossible as heck this year, like spending time with your family, for example. 





Fuimos a Punta Cana con un solo prop√≥sito, RELAJARNOS disfrutar de nuestra compa√Ī√≠a, pasar tiempo de calidad juntos y tratar tanto como sea posible de no pensar en el COVID y todas las cosas que COVID ha hecho dif√≠cil-imposible este a√Īo, como por ejemplo pasar tiempo con la familia.




We stayed in a very big resort I believe it had around 1,000 rooms and to our surprise it was empty, it was the saddest thing, to see a place that's usually full of people having fun, dancing, playing around in the pool and sunbathing with 15 scattered people in one of their pools,  out of their 7 restaurants they were only opening one for breakfast, one for lunch and one for dinner.  



Nos alojamos en un complejo muy grande, creo que tenía alrededor de 1,000 habitaciones y para nuestra sorpresa estaba vacío, fue lo más triste, ver un lugar que generalmente está lleno de gente divirtiéndose, bailando, jugando en la piscina y tomando el sol con 15 personas dispersas en una de sus piscinas. De sus 7 restaurantes solo estaban abriendo uno para el desayuno, uno para el almuerzo y uno para la cena.





We definitely didn't expect to see a full house, but it was truly sad and shocking to see a massive place in that condition.  Putting that aside, we had an amazing time, as days passed we started to see more people and that really comforted us.  We then knew the Hotel had just recently re-opened which was the reason for the very few people in their installations.




Definitivamente no esper√°bamos ver una casa llena, pero fue realmente triste e impactante ver un lugar enorme en esas condiciones. Dejando eso a un lado, lo pasamos incre√≠ble, a medida que pasaban los d√≠as comenzamos a ver m√°s personas y eso realmente nos consol√≥.  Luego supimos que el hotel acababa de reabrir sus puertas, raz√≥n por la cual hab√≠a muy poca gente en sus instalaciones.






  If you have the chance to travel during this time, do it,  do it responsibly, do your research about the location, the area, the measures that particular place is taking in order to keep everything ''safe''. The pros of traveling during COVID (I know it sounds ridiculous to find a positive but, it's definitely real) airplane tickets are waaaaay cheaper, the fees to cancel and change your flight are being waved, hotels like the one we stayed are in amazing prices plus you are also contributing to keeping alive someone else's business and jobs, and I'm not referring to hotel owners here, I'm talking about, the cleaning crew, the chefs, the entertainment people, the waiters, the guy that sells you excursions on the beach, the people that actually make possible you have a good time, the people serving you and making sure your needs are met.  Was this a heavy topic? I hope not haha, these times are something else without a doubt, below I share with you some pictures I took during our stay in Punta Cana.

 I highly recommend visiting the Dominican Republic it'ss the most beautiful place and I'm sure that with or without COVID you'll have a blast. 





Si tienes la oportunidad de viajar durante este tiempo, h√°zlo, h√°zlo responsablemente, investiga la ubicaci√≥n, el √°rea, las medidas que ese lugar en particular est√° tomando para mantener todo "seguro". Las ventajas de viajar durante COVID (s√© que suena rid√≠culo encontrar algo positivo, pero definitivamente es real) los boletos de avi√≥n son mucho m√°s baratos, las tarifas para cancelar y cambiar vuelos no las est√°n cobrando, los hoteles como el que nos hospedamos tienen precios incre√≠bles adem√°s, tambi√©n est√°s contribuyendo a mantener vivos los negocios y trabajos de otras personas, y no me refiero a los propietarios de hoteles unicamente, me refiero al equipo de limpieza, los chefs, las personas del entretenimiento, los camareros, el se√Īor que te vende excursiones en la playa, las personas que realmente te hacen pasar un buen rato, las personas que te atienden y se aseguran de que tus necesidades sean satisfechas. ¿Fue este un tema pesado? Espero que no jaja, estos tiempos son otra cosa sin duda, a continuaci√≥n les comparto algunas fotos que tom√© durante nuestra estad√≠a en Punta Cana. 

Recomiendo encarecidamente visitar Rep√ļblica Dominicana, es el lugar m√°s hermoso y estoy segura que con o sin COVID lo pasar√°s incre√≠ble.


Have you traveled or plan to do so? Where to? I'd love to know!

¿Has viajado o planeas hacerlo? ¿A donde? ¡Me encantar√≠a saber!
