romper: Écru Lab / kicks: Superga / choker: Leah Alexandra Jewelry

Friday is here!  It’ sunny and I’m working from home in the backyard, so lovely.  Plan for today is work until the late afternoon then go for a long run.  The perfect way to cap off a productive day.  this warm weather is perfect for comfortable rompers like this one by Écru Lab.  The loose off-shoulder sleeves are such a pretty touch and the pattern on the fabric is so summer-in-the-countryside.  Paired it with my current favorite kind of footwear: platform kicks.  The straw bases on these are so perfect for summer.  These photos were taken in Sayulita, Mexico.  The streets in town were so colorful and this one leading to the beach covered in bright flags was picture perfect.  Time to get back to work, so pleasant to be working outside!  Happy studies babeskillets, Tita xx

bathing suit: San Lorenzo

Hola, finally got a handle on work and had a chance to edit some recent photos…so back to regular blogs!  How amazing is this jungle bathtub oasis?  This was at the house we stayed at in Sayulita.  Some friends of ours are renting the place for the month and we flew down for a week to live it up in Mexico.  Such a sweet spot with epic views and a quick walk into town and the beach, so grateful to have had a chance to spend a week down there (thanks Jeremy and Lauren!).  I’ll make a post on the casita MTV cribz style because it was ultra gorgeous.  This cooling pond zone was right next to an outdoor shower and also mine and Essex’s suite.  It’s super humid there so a dip in cold water is the best medicine after walking up the hill home!  It felt like I was in a jungle watering hole…what better place to wear a lion one-piece.  Love this San Lorenzo suit, they are my favorite for one-pieces!  Super good for surfing, too.  Wish I had a cooling pool to dip into this eve, it was a warm one today full of work, work and more work then a quick run before the sun went down.  Time to snooze though, I enjoy being on the early morning program in the summer when the sun rises earlier…maximizing those daylight hours!  Talk tomorrow babeskillets, Tita xx

Granville Island Eats

Back at the office and in full research mode.  It feels like I’m getting ready to write a novel…just a really scientific one haha.  Lots of work, but it’s fun and interesting…and will hopefully have a positive impact on people with rheumatoid arthritis in the future!  In the meantime, check out another article I wrote for Curiocity Vancouver here.  All about where to eat on Granville Island at each time of day.  Breakfast on-the-go at Terra Breads, coffee boost at Petit Ami, lunch at Edible Canada, happy hour drinks at Bridges, and dinner at The Sandbar.  Enjoy!  I’ll start posting regularly in the next couple of the days with lots of Mexico goodness.  Happy first day of summer!  I’m going to try to leave the office before the suns goes away so I can go for a run in the nice summery weather.  Peace babeskillets, Tita xx

Coffee Time

Hola!  After an amazing week of warm water and jungle living, I’m back from Mexico.  It feels like I’ve been away for much longer than a week.  So nice.  My phone is having some issues at the moment though which is delaying me from getting photos from Mexico up on the blog but I’m getting it all sorted and will be back to regular postings soon.  Need to catch up on work this week as well so it’s a little hectic at the moment, plus my computer is running slow…tech issues haha.  In the mean time, I’m stoked to announce that I’m a freelance writer for Curiocity Vancouver!  This site is all about Vancouver and it’s goodies: from food to adventures.  Check out their dope Instagram feed here, too.  My first article is up on the site now, all about my favorite coffee shops around Vancouver!  Above are pictures form the features cafes: Small Victory Cafe, Matchstick Coffee, Aperture Coffee Bar, Gallagher’s Coffee Bar and Cafe, and Creekside Coffee Factory.  May the light/medium/dark roast be with you babeskillets, Tita xx

jumpsuit: Aritzia / denim jacket: Forever 21 / kicks: Superga / hat: Brixton / bag: Cole Haan / choker: Leah Alexandra Jewelry

Hello from Phoenix!  I have an hour layover and time to chill so here’s the outfit I’m wearing today.  This jumpsuit is so cozy for travel days, and it looks cute with a denim jacket.  I’m a big fan of platform kicks right now and these ones are the perfect replacement for classic white Converse.  Next stop Puerto Vallarta and Sayulita!  Going to relax and enjoy my time with Essex but will for sure post some photos once I’m back home next week.  Have an awesome week babeskillets, Tita xx

Vacation Mode!

Good morning!  Just a quick post before I take off…about to hop on my first flight of the day to Phoenix.  Wearing a super cute jumpsuit today, shot some photos this morning and I’ll try to post them on my layover.  Above is my beach uniform for the week: bathing suit, shorts and hat (gotta protect that face from the sun yo!).  Moka was bummed she couldn’t come with me.  I’ll miss that little ween…but I’m extra excited because Essex is meeting me in Mexico!  Can’t wait to see him.  Six weeks is a long time without your favorite person.  It’s going to be sooo nice to relax together.  Time to fly!  Talk later babeskillets, Tita xx

Airport Life: LAX-SFO-YVR

Hola!  Heading to Mexico in the AM and in light of my airport day tomorrow I’ll share a couple airporting tips haha.  I’ll be flying through Phoenix, a new one for me!  A flight I catch often is LA to Vancouver, sometimes via San Francisco.  Here’s my thoughts on how best to do that (short) trip.  Ideally you have a midday flight from LA so you don’t have to wake up super early and also avoid traffic a little…but it doesn’t always work out that way haha.  Travel outfits are always cozy for me.  A pair of white wash jeans, a long sleeve top, some Velcro kicks, and a leather jacket…perfecto.  If I have a hat I’ll usually travel in it too, as they’re hard to pack.  It’s nice to grab a quick cup of tea or coffee in LAX as you wait for your flight.  I tend to get there early because you never know how big the security line will be in such a big airport so I usually end up with time to spare at the terminal.  Also, I almost always check-in to my flight online…super convenient, especially when you only have a carry on!  Next stop San Francisco.  If I have a longer layover (a couple hours) I like to grab a sandwich from Boudin, they have the best sour dough.  Turkey and avocado is my fave.  Added some Peet’s Coffee to help me stay awake on my next flight so I could get a little work done.  Recommend it, my latte was tasty!  On the plane I’m either working, editing photos from a trip, or sleeping/listening to music.  On long flights, like to Europe, I always catch up on movies…mini marathon every time haha.  So there you have it, back in Vancouver in no time…as seen by the foggy views we flew into haha.  Alright, time to finish up my pedicure (currently soaking my feet) and get to sleep…up bright and early tomorrow.  Had a lovely afternoon with some family visiting from London, we took them to the dope fish and chips spot and strolled around the waterfront park…glad I got to see them for a day at least!  Goodnight babeskillets, Tita xx
