HORTENSIA: Post Beach SkinCare

As you all know, I am a beach side kindda gal, quite frankly I love roasting under the sunshine reggae and doing photosynthesis for hours.


Just as much as we prepare our skin for going under the sun, we need to nourish after it’s been exposed, and what better way to do so than with Korean Skin Care goodies.




HORTENSIA carries an incredible array of products that help rehydrate sun exposed skin, and bring back elasticity, luminosity and moisture. Korean skin care brands are globally known leaders when it comes to face masks.






Seriously I’m a sucker for Asian skin care.









I was recently kindly gifted these masks from Kocostar by Hortensia which I have to say have absolutely revolutionized the way I used to do masks, for starters they’re way easier to use, you can apply them to whichever area needs a little extra aquatic love, wether it be your face, necks, arms, wanna have soft baby cheeks? Hey I’m not blaming you! I would too. There’s no mess at the time of removal, they smell delicious, they’re asian, yes I know I said that before is just that is a really important part for me.




If by any chance you happen to be doing your photosynthesis in Punta del Este like myself, you’ll find their summer pop up beach shop in Parada 30 Brava. They’re also in Montevideo and they have an online shop [i suggest the last one..for those of you who wanna join the lazy people club I’ve been meaning to found].













Namasté babes!

LINE OF FIRE: staycation | uruguay

Given that I will be leaving my beloved Uruguay soon again, I started to get all that FOMO I did not get the past months while being here, and decided to explore the beauties of the motherland, I’m a beachside gal with the countryside at heart.


For someone utterly obsessed with traveling, sometimes I take for granted the millions of tourists that land in my lands every year. Don’t get me wrong, they do not go unnoticed, the inexistent winter supermarket queues suddenly become a thing, clubs and night bars come to life, and believe it or not, even the traffic lights get turned on during summer.





As you may know from my about page I suffer from a restless wanderlust gene


As usual, there was a need to dress the part. I wanted to wear my graduation dress which I bought off a super cute concept store in Chelsea London, last summer, but I thought how do I pull off an upwards U$S 1000 silk dress and take it to the countryside?



So I thought ok, layers, layers and textures are the key to solving this [oh so first world] problem. Started off with La Marca 1967 denim patch jacket in blue and white, which immediately vibed countryside to me, I told myself: cowgirl let’s cliché the f*ck out of this outfit and tie a red scarf to your Balenciaga bag, had chosen the bag cus it was suppoused to rain and this baby comes with a special coating for summer showers. Skies cleared laters I learnt sometimes we all just need a little staycation, for what we call home and routine, can all of a sudden become adventures and newness.
