Everyone knows I’m a mom, and a very proud one! I love my kids. They are my everything. The ymake me laugh, they’ve made me grow, and they teach me something new every day; but, overall, they just fill my life with pure and inexplicable joy. Even when I’m upset or tired, I still feel that happiness inside. However, kids can take a toll on a mom’s life, specially on their body. So, after seeing the growing #Mombod trend, I got inspired to come out of my shell and finally wear a bikini after 3yrs in hiding. I mean, how could I say no to swimming with fishes and turtles during my trip to St Kitts Marriott Resort and Royal Beach Casino and Nevis Island?

Was I going to miss that just because I was afraid of exposing my stretchies? I decided to finally wear that gorgeous Trina Turk swimsuit that had collected dust for the past 3 years, and jump on the water! I gotta say: It was life changing! Read the full story on Mom.Me. I have written beauty, parenting and mom life articles for the site, and I have to say that they have given me an outlet where to express myself in a different way. Continue reading

As a proud Colombian, I consider Cartagena one of the most special places to visit. The colorful streets, the fresh fruits and seafood, the history behind the city and its walls, and the never-ending nightlife are some of the things I enjoy when I go there. During my last trip to Cartagena, I went to meet the new TPC Cartagena at Karibana Golf and Beach Resort. The luxury spot gives you an exclusive view of the water from the hills of the golf course.

For my outfit in “La Ciudad Amurallada” I had to represent my roots, so I paired an Express crop top with an abstract-printed soft denim skirt from Colombian designer Jose Cuello. I really liked his designs because he knows how to mix bright colors and bold prints in light fabrics, with incredible style and class. Even though it was extremely hot- thank God for cold coconuts-, a traditional sombrero vueltiao’ was the ideal addition to my look.

Greece has always been one of my dream spots. Aquamarine beaches, white and blue houses over the hilltop, Mediterranean food and beautiful weather are some of the reasons why I have been in love with this ancient land since I was a child! I mean, even my name means goddess, so how not feel attached to this lifestyle?! But, these aren’t my main reasons. Since reading Homer’s mythological stories, admiring The Birth of Venus by Botticelli and been intrigued by the mysterious Parthenon, I have felt a strong and lasting connection to the Grecian world that has influenced my life.greek dress, greece travel, gladiators, gold cuff, greek wedding dress, helen of troy, greek inspired fashion
