Posting these pictures in November, I see how I took for granted that bright sun. My skin was all glowing, lips gloss poppin’, and you could tell I was soaking up the rays. But, if I could flash back to that time, I would definitely just lay on the beach more and maybe even fall asleep there. It was too good and I think it’s safe to say that pink dress is going to be a summer staple. It’s easy, comfortable and will always be a great throw on for beach days and catching some sun rays. Did you see what I did there? I rhymed, haha.
¡Buenos dias amigos queridos! Que tal? Bien? ¡Vale! Are you digging my Spanish? Sexy right? I’m just kidding…I’m really not though. Ha. Moving on, I tend to frequent Spain often. Living in Paris, I can visit surrounding countries pretty easily. It’s one of the many perks to living abroad. I also visit Spain a lot because one of my best friends from childhood lives there, extra bonus.
My bestie lives in Sevilla, Spain and if you’re not familiar with the city, it gets very hot there and with no beach I’m like a fish out of water. I love the city, but I can’t stand the heat. So, we made a trip further south to Cadiz. Known for it’s beautiful beach town landscape and energy, it’s history runs deep. The ports in Cadiz were used to go and explore, conquer and decimate the Americas…how lovely! With the conquistadors long gone, the city has since become a location revered for it’s openness, and residents proud of their reputation for having a love of life.
Often referred to as “Little Havana“, I quickly understood why. Although I have not yet had a chance to visit Cuba. I have seen tons of photos from there. One thing that stands out is the bright city buildings and vibrance of the people. Cadiz has both. We headed over for some impromptu photos in the old city (seen above and below). I had every intention of telling people I had actually gone to Cuba, but why lie? Either way, the area was really cute and I loved the colorful buildings, all intertwined and resting atop narrow roads.
I truly enjoyed Cadiz and have every intention to return. You can see more of my photos from this beautiful city in Her Travels.
I can officially say that we are finally out of that winter drudge and it is officially Springtime here in Paris. What does that mean for the blog? More vibrant and cool content! Be on the lookout because I am super pumped with all the goodies I’ll be sharing.
P.S. – Like the quote above, apologize to anyone you may have rubbed the wrong way when it was cold out. I’m sure you didn’t mean it, I know I didn’t. 😉
The Season’s are changing in Paris, which means the weather is more on the wet side. To be honest, this is what most people expect the elements to be like in Europe…myself included. So, I decided to take advantage of the crazy dry moments with an impromptu photo shoot. Okay, okay, it was planned and the rain messed everything up, but I still made the best of situation once the rain subsided. Making lemonade out of lemons baby! ha.

During summer 2016 I was able to learn how to DJ, Old School Style. What do I mean by old school style, I’m talking with turntables and vinyl. I also learned how to mix and scratch using Serato. I got so good, that people would stop and ask questions about my DJing or simply stare. You know, everyone loves to see a girl kick some a**, especially in areas where we typically see men dominate. I strongly suggest everyone take the time to try and learn something new, everyday if you can. It’s truly liberating.
