What I got for Christmas 2017

Hello loves and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope everyone is having the BEST start of the year! I know it's long overdue but here I am, FINALLY sharing what I got from Christmas this year :)

To be honest I really didn't ask for anything, I took it easy and enjoyed the time with my family in the city. My Christmas gift to them was tickets for The Christmas Spectacular, at the Radio City Musical Hall, featuring the iconic Rockettes! Nonetheless I did receive some amazing goodies and here they are:

1. The Louis Vuitton Logomania scarf in grey

I feel like every single blogger got one this year! But it's seriously so beautiful and warm, I was so so happy when I opened it!

2. Two Fendirumi bag charms

I didn't own any Fendi bag charms and for a fashion obsessed like me it was almost something to be ashamed of! (just kidding!) These little monsters will make all of my bags so much more fashionable.

3. Chloé and Chloé Love Story Gift Sets

I'm such a Chloé girl when it comes to perfumes! Their floral and light scents are perfect for any month of the year! These gift sets came with miniature/travel size bottles and well as scented body lotions! I guess someone will be smelling very good this year :D

4. Chanel Pearl Earrings

Chanel earrings are probably one of my biggest obsessions. I just think they're so beautiful and classical that they'll never go out of style. I wear earrings everyday (I feel so naked without them!) and it's usually Chanel ones. So happy when I opened the little black box and found these pearly beauties inside! Plus they match my brooch so well.

5. Tons of beauty goodies!

I feel like you can never go wrong when gifting beauty products to any woman in your life :) The Lancome L'absolu Rouge Lip Glosses are so rich and creamy, I'm in love with their formula! And for whenever I feel like having a spa night in the Pure Sugar Scrub by L'Oréal followed by the MZ Skin Hydra-lift Golden Facial mask make my skin feel like new in just a few minutes!

6. Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate!

I must say my friend and family know me well! I think I have enough chocolate to last me until Christmas 2018.. Hum.. nope, just kidding, it's almost all gone already!

7. Tsarevna Christmas Tea by Kusmi Tea Paris

Another gift that was the most welcome was Kusmi Tea's Christmas blend in a beautiful limited edition gold jar. The zesty aroma of orange on a black tea base, with touches of vanilla and almond is the most perfect way to start any wintery day!

Handbag collection

Today is #NationalHandbagDay and what better to to celebrate this fun day than to bring all of my babies out for a family picture?? :D I have loved and cherished every single one of them from the moment I bought them and have used all of them so much! I am ashamed to admit that there are still a ton of bags on my wishlist but I am so very grateful for everything I have! Not that I haven't worked my ass off to be able to afford every single one, because I really have.

So to us, handbags lovers out there, may our collections keep on growing! :D

(Of course I realized only after taking these that my Drew and a Chanel bag were missing but all of the others are here i promise!)

My top 5 must-have bags

If you're anything like me you have a closet full of bags that you love and cherish dearly. Every piece you own is unique and has a special place in your heart. But there are undoubtedly some bags that you wear more often than others. Either be their color, leather or shape, you find that they complete your outfits perfectly and never let you down. That's how I feel about these 5 bags, which are definitely my must-haves. Forget about diamonds, I think purses are a girl's best friends!

5. The everyday tote: Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM

So incredibly spacious yet lightweight this bag is perfect for everyday errands and traveling. It can comfortably fit a laptop, a planner, your wallet, your makeup bag, a water bottle, your dog, your mom and everything that's in your room! Haha, jokes aside I have purchased this bag over 6 years ago and used it extremely often and it still looks superb!

4. The structured bag: Givenchy Antigona

So sleek and sophisticated the Antigona is a total class act. You can transition it from day to night and goes with literally everything! It carries a lot even though it gets pretty heavy if I fill it up too much: in that case the shoulder strap comes in very handy and saves you a pretty annoying eventual backache. I have this bag in black and I am seriously debating getting a beige one as well, that's how much I love it.

Bracelet: Hermès - Sunglasses: Céline

3. The party clutch: Alexander McQueen skull clutch

" 'Cause the party don't start til I walk in!". LOL. Well this bag is definitely an attention grabber slash conversation starter. I've had it for the longest time and it still looks new and has survived many crazy nights out. It's the kind of piece that elevates any outfit: pair it with a monochrome ensemble for a more sober look or with wild prints to make an over the top style statement.

Ring: YSL - Clutch: Alexander McQueen - Skull bracelet: Alexander McQueen - Roman numbers bracelet: The Peach Box - Link bracelet: J. Crew - Nailpolish: YSL number 26 Blanc Symboliste

2. The nano bag: Chloé Drew

The mini bag craze is far from over and everyone is always on the hunt for smaller and cuter bags. Personally I think it doesn't get any cuter than this Drew: I love the soft neutral color, the intricate chain details, the yellow gold hardware and its perfect shape. 

Skirt: Kora Rae - Rings: Forever 21

1. The classic: Chanel flap

The little black dress of bags, the fairest of them all: a Chanel classic black flap is my holy grail. The elegance and sophistication that a Chanel bag can give to your outfit is almost surreal. It's been a must have and celebrity favorite for many years and will probably never lose its status.

More summer, less Mondays

There not much to add to the title of this post really, it says it all. I can't believe I live in this paradise on Earth and I am grateful for every sunny day, every pretty palm tree, all the sandy toes and salty hair moments, the blue skies and even bluer water. So I just wanted to share a little piece of it with you and in an attempt to brighten your day a little bit, because there is just no way you could ever have a bad day here!

Downtown Funk

Even though I am in the Caribbean already I still have a couple of looks from NYC to share with you guys. This was last week, when my friend Yana from Bergdorf Princess and I went to the city for a girls' date complete with shopping and eating out. The weather was perfect, a bit chilly when windy but just warm enough to still be able to wear skirts with no tights. I am feeling the 70s vibes lately, listening to Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars over and over again and it also shows in my outfit and hairstyle choices!

Bag: Louis Vuitton - Top: Shein - Skirt: Marshalls - Shoes: Steve Madden - Faux fur: Lulus

Ring: YSL - Watch: Michael Kors - Bracelet: The Peach Box

Earth tones

Another beautiful day in the city! My friend and I decided to go to lunch and take a stroll in Washington Square park in the NYU area. Of course we ended up doing a little shopping afterward and I found a gorgeous and super glamorous black faux fur that I can't wait to show you guys. I was a bit chilly out (especially when the wind was blowing!) but the sun felt so good and warm! This time of year can be tricky because you never know if you'll end up being cold or super hot by the middle of the day! My secret is to always bring a chunky scarf with me: it's a real live-saver believe me!

Blouse: Zara (old) - Pants: 7 for all mankind - Shoes: Ugg - Trench coat: Shein - Bag: Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM - Sunglasses: Miu Miu via Ditto

I really love and cherish every single moment spent in this beautiful city. When I look around I am just so incredibly grateful for being able to live in New York!

Summer in the city

Just like every year, summer really flew by and we're already in September. Thank God the good weather and warm temperatures are still here with us in New York City. Today, as Labor day typically signals the end of the summer, I am sharing with you what has been my go to uniform for basically the whole season. Light summer dresses, comfortable wedges (or espadrilles), lots of colors and dainty jewelry.

Dress: Shein - Hat: H&M - Bag: Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM - Shoes: Bakers

These ear jackets from Blitz of Glitz have been my obsession during the summer months!

I am definitely not one of those girls that dress in black head to toe all year round! As soon as I the temperatures get warmer I love wearing colors and fun prints!

Breathtaking White Mountains

The second stop of our road trip was the White Mountains National Park in New Hampshire. We stayed at the Eagle Mountain House and Golf Club and we loved absolutely everything about it! The location was unbeatable, the history of the hotel fascinating and food was excellent!

For the drive there I chose an easy, laid-back outfit and paired it with some bold red lips:
Denim shirt and destroyed white jeans: Abercrombie & Fitch - Espadrilles: Chanel - Bag: Louis Vuitton - Racoon's tail (not real!): Evolution.

Brooch: Chanel - Bracelet: Hermès.

This beautifully set up veranda was one of our favorite spots to relax after a hike or a day visiting the small city.

The view was just indescribable. I can only imagine how incredible the mountains must look in the winter, all covered in snow!

When it first opened in 1879, the original Eagle Mountain House & Golf Club accommodated 12 guests, modest beginnings for what would be one of New Hampshire’s premier resorts. Today the hotel is recognized as a Historic Hotel of America by the National Trust historic preservation, it now offers 92 heritage accommodations and suites that strive to maintain the historic nature of the inn.

Can we talk about how perfect and cute this little mountain house is?

We decided to leave from the hotel and hike to a nearby river and we arrived to this:

Is this real life??

Our couple of days here were absolutely extraordinary and we left feeling completely reborn.
