Pretty Vacant is a high quality leather jacket company. The fit and touch of the leather jacket is something that I have never experienced before. Their work is beautiful. Trust me you will not find a product like this so easily.

Panarea- Isole de Eolie, Italia ♡

IMG_0976

Sadly my trip to Italy is over but I am thankful to be able to look back at these beautiful pictures I took. During my trip to Italy I was able to visit two of the several islands in Isole de Eolie. My favorite by far was an island called Panarea.

IMG_0995

The buildings at Panarea were so beautiful and characteristic. I felt like I was in Santorini! This building behind me is a home…. isn’t it sooo dreamy?!

IMG_0996

The streets were very narrow. Believe it or not golf carts were able to pass by these tiny roads! They used the golf carts as taxis in Panarea which is something I have never seen before.

IMG_1006

The  buildings were white and with a few plants it  changed the atmosphere of every little street.

IMG_1008

I also was able to swim here. The water was so warm! Ahhh I want to go back!!

IMG_1036

This is me in my natural state enjoying a erba meditarranea granita (which had mint, finocchi (fennel), and lemon. I know it sounds kind of funky but it wasn’t guys it was soooooo good!

I can’t wait to go back!

I already miss you Panarea.

With so much love,

I got to visit the town where Romeo & Juliet was originated from (Verona).

wooo wooo how romantic.

IMG_0352

The weather was so hot today, I enjoyed some cold fruit while walking around the city.

IMG_0348

There was something so special about this city.

Every inch of the city had beautiful architecture.

IMG_0407

This is the balcony that is said to be the exact balcony  Romeo and Juliet was based off of!

Soooo coool right?!

IMG_0449

Otavalo Market ♡

IMG_0224

During my visit in Ecuador I had the privilege of visiting a town called Otavalo.  Most of the people that live in Otavalo  are the indigenous people of Ecuador. In this province there is a market that the indigenous Otavaleños sell there handmade products.

IMG_0222

Everything sold in this market is handmade. It was so beautiful to see the detail and hard work they put into every product.

IMG_0219

Seeing the indigenous people was very beautiful and so interesting to me.

IMG_0226

This mask has many meanings to it… the top 12 little figures sticking out of the head represents the months in the year. The front part of the mask represents day and the back represents night!

Otavaleños are so creative!!

IMG_0228

Visiting the Otavalo Market is something that I will never ever forget in my life. I saw many things that I have never seen before. From the indigenous people to the beautiful art that was sold in the market.

I am visiting my boyfriend in ECUADOR!!! He is from Quito, Ecuador…. oolala so latin. Over the weekend we were able to go to a tropical rainforest. Which was so exciting for me because I have never been to a tropical rainforest before.

We stayed in this cabin for one night and two days… the cabin did not have electricity which made things much more interesting and adventurous.

Look at the view from the cabin… isn’t  it so beautiful?

IMG_0125

On the first day we went on a hike and I got to see many different trees and bugs that I have never seen before. I felt like I was able to see  Bug’s Life in real life!

IMG_0117

IMG_0076

The next day we were able to hike and  visit a few gorgeous waterfalls.

IMG_0116

The water was so cold but I had the courage to swim a little in the water. Which was so much fun and a new experience for me.

IMG_0101

The waterfalls were breathtaking.

IMG_0150

I had such a great time and made new memories that I will never forget.

Thank you Mindo

with so much love,

Buddha’s Brew Kombucha ♡

11303570_967915216598010_1719762381_n

People think that being healthy means you have to make yourself eat and drink things that are not as tasty but that is definitely far from the truth. I know I used to think that way but  have explored and found products & recipes that are far better in taste and are doing great benefits for my health. For example my favorite Buddha’s Brew Kombucha.

 Kombucha is a fermented beverage that carries bacterias and probiotics. I know you’re thinking bacteria??  Yes!!! but it is the bacteria that is good for you. (Not all bacterias are bad).

Kombucha Benefits- improves digestion, skin and hair, weight loss, increases energy, helps immune support, and detoxification. (These are few examples of many kombucha’s benefits)

11292792_967915266598005_682016397_n

I have tried most of Buddha’s Brews beverages and have loved every single one of them.

Buddha’s Brew first started selling their products at local Farmers Markets in Austin, TX and are now selling locally in Texas and outside of Texas in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

For more information about locations and on Buddha’s Brew check out their website here- http://www.buddhasbrew.com/

If you’re looking for a cool, fresh, delicious, and healthy beverage this summer definitely grab a Buddha’s Brew.

cheers to us for enjoying being healthy ♡

with so much love,

Murray Street Coffee Shop

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 presetToday I went to Murray Street Coffee Shop located in Downtown Dallas. I had a cappuccino with almond milk. I also got a sandwich but I forgot to take a picture 😦 sorry!! BUT if you do go…. I recommend the turkey sandwich and if you’re leaning on more of the healthy side I recommend the sandwich called “the insider” (the ingredients included fresh cucumbers, ezekiel bread, avocado, arugula, and aioli sauce). The ingredients were fresh and organic… and definitely healthy and delicious.

I was able to drive around and snap some pics of Downtown Dallas too! It’s good to be back and visiting…Yes i missed you Dallas 🙂

If you do go to this coffee shop let me know what you got and what you thought of it 🙂

With so much love,
