Hi guys!! I know I've been spamming you all lately with photos of my Colorado trip, but this is the very last post with photos, I promise!!! For our last day of vacation, we decided to do a light hike around the Roxborough State Park which features beeeeautiful red rock formations much like the Red Rocks we saw two days prior. 

I was simply marbled at how different the mountain scenery looked in comparison to my usual tropical palm tree Panama. What a lovely change of pace, and the perfect way to end our trip! Can't wait to visit you again soon Colorado, you were marvellous ;)

-- En Español -- Hola chicos!! Sí, ya se que últimamente los he bombardeado con muchas fotos de mi viaje a Colorado, pero les prometo que esta es la última!!! En nuestro último día de vacaciones, decidimos irnos de hiking al parque Roxborough que tiene unas formaciones de rocas rojas heeeeeeermosas, muy similares a las que vimos en Red Rocks dos días atrás.

Me quedé fascinada con lo diferente que se ve esta área montañosa comparado a mi usual Panamá tropical lleno de palmeras. Este viaje fue maravilloso como para hacer algo diferente! Estoy emocionada por volver a visitarte Colorado, fuistes toda una maravilla!

Hi guys!! Next up from our Colorado trip, I present to you the magnificent one of kind Red Rocks area that we visited on one of our last days in Denver. As the name implies, this area is filled with these astounding red rocks that are in a slanted formation creating a unique landscape that is mesmerizing to all who see it. 

Another highlight from this day was our AMAZING brunch at Snooze, 100% recommended to all who visit Denver!

-- En Español -- Hola chicos!! El próximo post que les comparto de nuestro viaje a Colorado se trata de los hermosos Red Rocks (Rocas Rojas) que quedan a tan solo 30 minutos de Denver. Como el nombre lo indica, este área está lleno de muchísimas rocas rojas enoooormes que están inclinadas de un lado creando una vista espectacular y única. 

Otro momento delicioso de nuestro día fue desayunar en Snooze, full recomendado a todo el que visite Denver!

In the midst of the rocks, they also created an amphitheater where they host special events and concerts. Can you imagine how cool it must be to sit there and watch a show with the gorgeous view of all those rocks?! AWESOME! Definitely a must see for everyone visiting Colorado.

En medio de todas estas rocas, edificaron un anfiteatro donde presentan diferentes eventos especiales y conciertos. Imagínense ver un show en medio de esta vista tan hermosa de rocas rojas?! Demasiado cool!! Definitivamente es un "must see" la próxima vez que vallan a Colorado.

{Travel}: Spectacular Mountain views near Pitkin, Colorado

Beautiful mountain view by Pitkin, Colorado

Sunday August 21, 2016

Hi guys!! For the third and last day at the cabin in Colorado, we decided to do a short hike up "Mount McGrath" (named after our family's name) to enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains near Pitkin. As I gazed over the view and shared laughs with my cousins; I couldn't stop thinking that life really doesn't get much better than this. 

-- En Español -- Hola chicos! Para nuestro tercer y último día en la cabaña en Colorado, decidimos irnos de "hiking" a la cima de "Montaña McGrath" (nombrado así por nuestra familia) para disfrutar de la maravillosa vista de las montañas cerca de Pitkin. Les cuento que me sentí super inspirada allá arriba viendo una vista tan espectacular y riéndome a carcajadas con mis primos. Me hizo recordar que estos son momentos muy especiales y que no hay nada mejor que esto.

Colorado is the perfect vacation spot to sit back and enjoy nature

There is so much world to see and so little time to see it. Every time I travel and explore the world; I suddenly feel rejuvenated and motivated to live my life to the fullest. I have always enjoyed traveling and seeing new things; and I really want to take advantage of each and every day to the fullest from now on. That includes scheduling many more trips in the near future. I can't wait! 

Always remember my friends, life is NOW, start living it to the fullest!

Existe tanto mundo por recorrer y tan poco tiempo para recorrerlo. Cada vez que viajo y exploro el mundo; me siento rejuvenecida y motivada para vivir mi vida al máximo. Siempre me ha fascinado viajar y ver cosas nuevas; y quiero empezar a aprovechar cada día de ahora en adelante. Esto incluye planear muchos más viajes en el futuro cercano. Estoy super emocionada!! 

Recuerden amigos, la vida es AHORA, empiecen a vivirla!

{Video}: Easy DIY Postcard Travel Mementos


Hi guys!! Here's a little video I uploaded to The Joy of Fashion's YouTube channel showing a cute and simple way to create souvenirs of your trips (with a healthy dose of humour of course!)!! 

Basically I've collected postcards from my different adventures and I like to add the best photos of the trip to the back of the postcards. Then I take all these postcards and display them either on my bedside or in a cute little box in my living room.

What I love the most about this DIY idea is that it is SUPER easy and is a great way to remember your trip without taking too much space in your home (hello there obnoxious group of random souvenirs all over the house! haha). 

I hope you all enjoy the video, give it a thumbs up if you do! And remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be the first to see all my silly videos ;)

-- En Español -- Hola chicos! Aquí les comparto un video que subí al canal de YouTube de The Joy of Fashion donde les muestro una idea mega sencilla de cómo crear recuerdos de sus diversos viajes (con una buena dosis de humor por supuesto!)!!

Básicamente he ido coleccionando tarjetas postales de todos los lugares donde he visitado y me gusta pegarle las mejores fotos del viaje en la parte de atrás. Luego agarro todos estas tarjetas postales y las pongo en mi mesita de noche o dentro de una linda caja en mi sala.

Lo que más me gusta de este proyecto es que es SUPER fácil de hacer y es una excelente forma de recordar tus viajes sin tomar mucho espacio en sus hogares (hellou a todas esas chucherías que he ido coleccionando en mis viajes y van invadiendo mi casa! jaja) 

Espero que disfruten mucho de este video, y si es así, denle un like!! Recuerden también subscribirse a mi canal de YouTube para que sean los primeros en ver mis videos chistosos ;)

{Travel}: Cozy Striped Sweater at the Cabin

Cozy Sweater outfit for Fall

Saturday August 20, 2016

Hi guys!! After the beautiful hike to Fairview Peak I talked about in my last post, I decided to take a nice relaxing shower and switch into this simple cozy sweater, jeans, and boots combo. 

Funny story actually, as we were hiking earlier this day, one of the brown boots I was wearing suddenly fell completely apart and I was basically walking barefoot for a while, hahaha. To make it worse, those boots were the only shoes I had taken to the cabin, so I feared I would have to hang out barefoot all weekend! Thankfully, my cousin has the same foot size as me and she was so kind as to save the day with these cozy Uggs. Phew, that was a close one!

-- En Español -- Hola chicos! Después de nuestra aventura en Fairview Peak de mi último post, decidí tomarme una ducha relajante y cambiarme a este look más sencillo de abriguito, jeans, y botas. 

A que no adivinan qué me pasó este día! Cuando estábamos explorando Fairview Peak, de repente se me deshizo una de mis botas chocolates y básicamente tuve que caminar descalza en las montañas... jajaja. Como si eso fuera poco, las botas chocolates eran los únicos zapatos que había llevado a la cabaña, así que me aterroricé al pensar que estaría descalza todo el fin de semana! Gracias a Dios mi prima es del mismo tamaño de zapato que yo y muy amablemente me ayudó prestándome estas botas Uggs. Phew, me salvé de esa!!

One of the things I enjoyed the most of my trip to Colorado was all the AH-mazing views of nature! Today, for example, we drove some ATV's up Fairview Peak to enjoy a spectacular view of the mountains and some old mines. The views were SO beautiful that they almost don't look real... It's like visiting a postcard in real life ;)

Una de las cosas que más me gustó de mi viaje a Colorado fueron todas las vistas espectaculares de la naturaleza!! Hoy, por ejemplo, nos fuimos de paseo en 4wheels a la cima de Fairview Peak para disfrutar de una vista maravillosa de las montañas y unas minas antiguas. De verdad que la vista parecía de mentira de lo bonito que era!! Es como visitar una tarjeta postal en la vida real ;)
