Dress - Farm | Flats - Zara | Clutch from Pipa, Brazil
 I was introduce to FARM  a few years ago and it was love at first sight! No other brand can better describe the "Brazilian lifestyle" than them. A collective selection of artesian work mixed with amazing prints blending with styles that translate into the perfect tropical fashion.  I collected pieces throughout my vacation and it was so interesting how every time I entered a store I found pieces I didn't see before. From Sao Paulo, Pipa and Rio de Janeiro I bought over 10 pieces and I cant wait to wear them in the upcoming Spring in LA.
The branding is so catching! From the way they display the clothes, the store decor and every detail makes me adore FARM more every season. If you love Instagram & fashion @adorofarm is a must follow profile, their gallery projects the brand & Rio de Janeiro lifestyle with breathtaking sunsets, exclusive prints, news from the brand and lots of inspiring pics. Thats how I found out about the "FARM Summer House" or "FARM Casa de Verao". If you are planing a Trip to Rio soon you can get a taste of FARM all the way... Yes you can eat, drink, shop, take classes and dive into the world of FARM.

Hotel Unique - Sao Paulo

As the name already implies not only describing the "Unique" design by Ruy Ohtake but also the "Unique" experience. I used to live in Sao Paulo, and I have never seen this city from this angle. Definitely my new home away from home... From the moment you walk into the Hotel, the super high ceilings, the decor, the art, the extraordinary service to the perfect welcoming into your room. How simple and genius is to serve coconut water in the coco? After long hours of flying and delays... It made me feel like the staff read my mind. The rooftop has the most amazing views of Sao Paulo (I have guz bumps just remembering!)... the most metropolitan city in Brazil, a concrete jungle of super high buildings and the Ibirapuera Park almost transformed into a live painting, just breathtaking!
I was there for only 3 days, with a full agenda of things I wanted to do in Sao Paulo and simply had no time to experience all the amenities. Besides the roof top red pool there is also a cover pool next to the gym, spa and also the restaurant on the top floor on my list for next time.
Very well located, a hot spot during Sao Paulo Fashion week...  The Unique Hotel will make your Brazil experience complete, I totally recommend!

Mirrored Sunglasses

Ray-ban (here), Wildfox ( here)
The best way to brighten your look! The options weren't good enough until now. I just got back from Brazil and there is such a fever of colored mirrored glasses, everywhere! Perfect for the summer time but I find it really sexy for winter as well, specially the colored ones, transforming the cold days and dark looks with a touch of color. Wear them now thru summer! They will come handy for the summer music festivals.
Get Inspired!

Back from Vacation!

 First of all...
I'm so lucky to have two summers per year! I just got back from an AMAZING vacation in Brazil! Almost a month traveling between Sao Paulo, Espirito Santo, Rio Grande do Norte, Paraiba and Rio de Janeiro; only me and my hubby, meeting friends and family along the way and going thru some adventures! 
I will break  down my vacation into many posts within the next several days when I get the chance to sort out over 4000 pics I have in my computer and iPhone. Talking about iPhone... I got mugged in my home town and they took my iPhone, that really traumatized me!  I'm Brazilian and as much I know how careful I should be in Brazil I think living in the US for such a long time has made me a little innocent.  Yes!!! I was robbed in Brazil at gunpoint for the first time! Thanks to iPhone technology (http://www.apple.com/iphone/icloud/#find) and my best friend that happens to be well and bad related, if you know what Im trying to say, somehow after hitting the favela  the phone got back to my hands in less than 24 hrs! But the fear of that moment will never leave my thoughts. 
Moving on...
I'm skinny but I eat! I mean... I can really eat and I love all the exotic and heavy foods from Brazil, but the problem is that my body is not used to it anymore, lol. It is even funnier to look at the collection of medication I brought back home. #noregrets  So in my last stop, Rio de Janeiro I spent a day at a local clinic with food poisoning. I learned my lesson from last time, so instead of feeling sick for 3-4 days one day of IV and proper antibiotics solved my problem and the next day I was back in the Ipanema sands; nothing really got on my way to have the best time as I'm always learning and it is all part of the experience. 
We had pretty much perfect weather every day and as much I was missing home at the end I can't wait to plan the next one!
Bellow, some Instagram pics just to warm up what is about to come and above all the wonderful things I brought back in my luggage; souvenirs, gifts & lots of shopping!
