The first wrinkle

the first wrinkle - skincare

I turned 30-years-old two months ago. And happens what is supposed to happen, I’m getting old. Not that I’m feeling old, I don’t feel old at all. There are days where I would throw a tantrum like a 3-year-old, there are days where I can be as careless as a 13-years-old. And there are days where I feel passionate like a 23-years-old.

I love shorts.  They are basically my go to outfit for the entire summer, or since I live in the tropic for the entire year. They are just so easy and comfy. And I like to rock a short for pretty much any occasion, but sometimes, wearing a short is just too casual.  Think meeting an agent for lunch or hosting a sunset cocktail […]

Meal planning like a pro

meal planning cover

I love cooking, and while until not so long ago, cooking was an option and a hobby, it has now become part of the daily routine (remember my last post), no more sneaking into the hotel’s kitchen for tasty leftover. The least I can say is that cooking healthy food is demanding and has even proved itself quite challenging as it takes a lot […]
