SAYU-STAYCATION




















Whenever in need of a mini-break we head to Sayulita, its a great way to feel like we're on vacation (even though its more like a stay-cation). But its a nice way to get a breather. In the summer the town is a lot less crowded, the heat a bit more intense but that can be overlooked when you are spending more time at the beach wearing a swimsuit than wearing actual clothes. We do have our favorite little boutique hotels, that are right in the heart of town. Petite Hafa is very cute and homey and has a lovely terrace where you can enjoy a good book and have a lovely breakfast. Another one of our favorites is Casa Love that is known for its boho-chic vibes and great store on the first floor. If a nice view is your thing, then nowhere to look but Punta Sayulita, or Siete Lunas.

Our Korean Skin Care Routine: Innisfree











While in Asia, we became obsessed with Korean beauty products, in particular with Innisfree  here's why: Apart from being one of the leading skin care brands in South Korea, most of their products are eco-friendly and come from natural ingredients on Jeju Island. They also do bottle recycling and their products just proved to be exceptional for our skin. As girls who live by the beach and travel constantly, we often get asked what we use to protect our skin from the sun and what we travel with, so here it is! Our Korean beauty regime:

For Cleansing

We both have oily skin, so for us its really important to use an oil cleanser because it easily removes make up and impurities while smoothing and removing flaky dead skin cells (its okay to use oils on oily skin!). We love this product because it leaves the skin looking brighter and fresh without drying it out. Also, it smells delicious!

Another great product for removing your make-up and all impurities. These are perfect for traveling! We love to travel with this pack because you can easily carry them in your handbag and take them anywhere. You really only need one tissue for your whole face and voilá your make up is instantly gone and your skin is left extremely smooth.


For Exfoliating

We believe that as part of our routine, its really important to exfoliate once a week. We sometimes get acne or blemishes as most girls do, so its crucial for us not to use harsh exfoliators. This cleanser is perfect, as it removes the dead skin cells and dirt without being abrasive.


Serum 

This was the very first Innisfree product we ever tried,  and it is still our favorite! Can't live without it.
 It is perfect for all types of skin, we use it everyday in the morning and at night. It moisturizes the skin leaving it super smooth and glowing. You immediately see results as your skin absorbs the antioxidants and nutrients of the green tea seed. Get ready for a healthier looking complexion. We think of it as a super food for the skin. Highly recommended.


Face Masks

Perfect to avoid the dryness that usually happens when you travel on long flights. 
The lifting sheet mask has collagen which helps restore elasticity; it is a great mask to prevent wrinkles and tighten up your skin.


This is another product we swear by! This clay mask works wonders. Especially if you are prone to getting zits. It helps shrink and close your pores and control the sebum. When we spend too much time out in the sun or our skin feels extra oily during the day we use the volcanic pore clay mask for 10 min and it we can feel instant results.
Definitely worth adding this mask to your Korean beauty regime!

MUSTARD






 A few more pictures from our recent rip to Guadalajara. Like we said previously, the city can be quite happening and its a nice dose of city life for us.This suede skirt is a new buy from The Reformation- and we love how versatile it is! In this post its paired with a mustard-colored shirt, which I thought was a fun way to add a pop of color to the look, but it can just as easily be paired with a black bodysuit for a sleek going out look. Its definitely a timeless piece that can be worn in many different ways, so I'm excited to play around with it a bit more. You can be sure you will be seeing more of this skirt!
What are your thoughts on suede skirts?

CASA FAYETTE








Guadalajara is an often overlooked city by tourists and travellers when exploring Mexico, but for the locals it is no secret that this city is exciting in many ways. First of, it is vibrant and young, and keeps growing at an impressive rate. It has also become a popular destination for international students because of the extensive exchange programs the Universities provide. Most important right now, it has become Mexico's tech-hub and in consequence the city has been undertaking a major transformation. It is going from a somewhat big city to a monstrous metropolis in a short time, so its definitely an interesting time to visit. Our top choice when in the city, is the very trendy and cozy boutique hotel Casa Fayette. Our priority when choosing a hotel is the location (most of the times!) and this hotel has the best one yet in Guadalajara. Just a short distance from the most vibrant area: Chapultepec, with a dozen restaurants and bars to choose from- though our hotel bar is pretty nice too! The interiors are very stylish and they also have bikes available so you can explore the area and discover the cute cafés around the neighborhood.
