Marti’s Beauty Routine

Talking about my beauty routine

I LOVE beauty products. My sister makes fun of me because I have a lot of “potingues”, which is something around the line “you have so much stuff!!” but it’s probably because she’s the complete opposite hehe. Anyhow, I love beauty and hair products; however, I’m a picky person – let me explain: I will stay loyal to a brand as long as that product keeps working its magic. Also, I have very sensitive skin so I have to be…

150 Challenge with Gisele is Nerdy

150 challenge

I mentioned a while back that I participated in a challenge with a lovely French blogger. The idea behind Gisele’s “150 challenge” is to have a look from head to toe under 150 euros. We met in the garden of the Palais Royale in Paris and she took pictures of my look. Here is the original version, in French, in Gisele’s blog called “Gisele is Nerdy“. I’m adding the English version in this post with some pictures of my look.…

Loving moi-self

Feeling pretty in black

I am still learning to love myself. Let me rephrase that because I do love myself: I am still learning to love my body with flaws and all. Some days I feel like Beyoncé and Shakira got nothing on me but some other days I feel that even Photoshop wouldn’t help me out! I guess is just a work in progress; I think is hard to love your body 100% because of the same stupid thing: what society wants you…

New Mom – Nouvelle vie?

Hanging out in Paris

I have been on a “blogger’s block” lately. My Mom came home to visit the baby for a long weekend, my sister is getting married in less than 10 days (I haven’t even started my Maid of Honor’s speech…), and I haven’t been feeling “inspired” for a little bit. Then, I got the chance to work with an amazing French blogger that I love, “Gisele is Nerdy”. I did a 150 euro challenge for her blog and answering her questions…

Paris Je T’aime

Paris the city of love

I consider myself to be a very fortunate person. I’m healthy, I have an amazing husband, a beautiful healthy baby boy, and I’m living my dreams; I live in Paris. Well actually in the suburbs, but still, pretty amazing right?! After 7 years I’m still amazed whenever I see the Eiffel Tower and I’m grateful that my dreams came true. I’ll probably talk a bit more about how I moved here in another blog post, what do you think? I…

Oh OUAI! Haircare Review 

Ouai-Haircare-review

I am excited about this post because I was finally able to test a few products from Jen Atkin’s haircare line “Ouai“. Jen is the hairstylist of plenty fabulous hair owners like Jenna Dewan-Tatum, the Kardash-Jenner gals, and Chrissy Teigen, just to name a few. I was a bit hesitant at the beginning because come on, those girls have naturally nice hair (I am not taking into consideration the hair extensions though) but then I thought that when a known…

Quicky Brownies

Yummy brownies

Have you ever had a crazy need for chocolate (or anything sweet for that matter)? Well, if you don’t want to feel “guilty” about eating 3 brownies in one seating you have come to the right place.  If you don’t care about feeling guilty, you have also come to the right place – life is too short so eat whatever you want! What I really like about this recipe is that it’s egg-free, so you can eat as much “brownie…

Les 2 Sis and Lola

For this post we had the honor and pleasure of interviewing not only a very special and amazing friend but also a world traveler who loves to share her experiences in her blog called Lola’s Passage.  Natalie is from Puerto Rico; she currently lives in New York City and works as an attorney, but don’t let that fool you because she still manages to travel all over the world whenever possible. I met Natalie back in college (2002 I think)…
