Santa Teresa

It wasn’t easy to get there, but without a doubt, it was a lot harder to leave. We lived in Cartago in 2014, when we first visited Santa Teresa. We took two buses and a ferry, and we would do it again and again. See, this is the place where you actually go to relax. Now that I think about it, that last sentence will probably be repeated in the next posts we will share with you, I guess we relax too much, or not enough.

Cold Days, Costa Rica

Choosing what to wear on a cold or windy day is always a challenge. I love pictures where clothes wave with the wind. On the other hand, if I am wearing a loose short dress or skirt, it may get very uncomfortable. On this throw back post of a trip to the Irazu volcano, I made sure I was warm by wearing booties and a sweater, and to add some movement I designed a long skirt.

Our first contact with Lu by Lolita was during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, where we were able to get a close view of the collection in backstage and confirmed its quality and style. We felt honored when the brand reached out to Colors of Costa Rica to invite us to their store and then pampered us with gifts! <3

We had the opportunity to chat with Juan Carlos, Cafeoteca’s barista, at Kalú Restaurant. He is humble and really likes to talk, so besides enjoying a good cup of coffee, we came out with new insights and a desire to know more about the world of coffee.

La Musa: Second Issue

Yuli, designer of her brand “La Musa”, contributed with bracelets and an absolutely gorgeous handcrafted necklace. The hand-painted pieces of balsa wood give added value and originality to the product. When using this type of “statement jewelry”, we should see the accessories as an important part of the outfit and consider the style and color palette we’re looking to achieve.

Another day went by at the MBFWSJ and the design proposals were spectacular. The fashion show began with Bryan Cecas designs.

Plaza Café

Plaza Cafe does not open with the first ray of sunlight that shines over the beautiful province of Guanacaste, nor with the schedule published on the Facebook page; it opens way before dawn, when many are still asleep. Sometimes it opens from the night before, when some go to bed or out to party. Why? Because 90% of Plaza Café’s products are homemade.

La Musa: First Issue

I found “La Musa” on Facebook and was immediately captivated by the color and originality of the accessories. I would classify them as “statement jewelry”, where the most important part of the attire is the accessory itself, which is attention-grabbing from blocks away.

Breakfast is the sexiest meal

If you're having breakfast with someone next to you, you are probably in love or just had a pretty good night. I love making breakfast, I find it the sexiest of all meals. I usually wake up first and breakfast comes to mind. I plan to surprise her… I know how she takes her coffee, with milk, she adores the sweet scent that comes out when it’s heating up.

Enjoying Casa Conde

As part of the prize we won through Expo Novia, Will and I had the opportunity to stay at the Casa Conde hotel at playa Panamá. The hotel is all inclusive, but during our stay they didn’t have the usual all-you-can-eat buffet. Maybe it was just because we visited during low season or perhaps they are searching to provide a more exclusive plan. Customers can order from the menu or ask for the “plat du jour”.
