GOLDEN STYLE: Sunday Uniform


Jeans, a Tee and D’orsays are slowly becoming my weekend uniform. They’re the ultimate ‘pijamas all day’ pairing without looking like like you’re actually in your pijamas. Although slightly a different version [read: all black everything] of this uniform is currently being worn, I shifted towards neutrals for this wishlist. What is your weekend uniform?



ON THE TABLE: Pre-Opening Fogo de Chao

I’ll start things off by saying I may have tasted the best Caipirinha of my life. It’s a given that a Brazilian Restaurant needs to have some Caipirinhas in the house but, the fact that they were very yummy helped seal the deal. This past Saturday I was invited, along with Make + Seek, to get a sneak peek [and a taste] at the first Fogo de Chao in Puerto Rico. You already read about my love for a certain lemony drink so, let’s talk food.

IN THE MAIL: Sweetheart Tacos by This is Ground

IN THE MAIL: Sweetheart Tacos by This is Ground tgf_CORDTACO_THISISGROUND_3

The little black hole we sometimes call the ‘everyday’ bag sucks all sorts of things into it. My hand suddenly becomes a metal claw like one of those arcade games where you never win. But, you know me. I’m in it to win it! One of the items that gets tangled in between my keys, my wallet and the ocasional snack inside my bag are headphones. Which means, if I can organize my headphones, I can find everything else in a second. So, when This is Ground kindly sent me some Cord Tacos to help organize my black hole situation, I pretty much jumped for joy. Anything with the word Taco is MADE for me!  The fact that they have quirky and cute sayings is the icing on top! I mean, “I’d Tag That“, is my spirit animal in quote form. Self proclaimed Instagram addict here!

The Sweetheart Tacos are SO cute and so practical that I went a step further and tried my hand at a little video so you could see how they work. Hope you enjoy! (Also, This is Ground is throwing in an exclusive Vday Cord Taco with all orders until the 10th of February with code “animalstyle”. Get in on the Vday sweetness!)

FIELD TRIP: The search for a Sunflower Field

FIELD TRIP: The search for a Sunflower Field Processed with VSCOcam with c8 preset Instagram is a blessing and a curse. On it, I can discover new places in Puerto Rico. But, I can also get crazy obsessed with visiting said places and plan last minute trips to get there to later find them closed. Case in point, the longest search for a Sunflower Field that happened to close an hour before we got there. Although, this sounds like a rant, it is not.

LOCAL: Common Thread with Sally Torres Vega, Agnes Anna and Raiza Ascanio

Designers Sally Torres Vega, Raiza Ascanio and Agnes Anna teamed up a couple weeks ago for an exhibition. But not your normal exhibition. In this one, you could try on clothes and pair up handmade bracelets. The artists were there to answer all your questions and guide you through their creation process. My kind of exhibition! Here’s a bit of a photo cluster from some of my favorite pieces.
