It’s been a while, I know. I wanted to do a whole fancy announcement but to be honest, life gets in the way a lot these days! So, instead, please accept this post as my way of sharing with you what I’ve been up to for the past five months. We moved to New York! We arrived from Panama on January 6, 2018. It’s been quite the ride ever since. I have an amazing full-time job and we’re all settled into our little Brooklyn apartment, happy as clams; José, Coco and I. Getting Coco here was a bit stressful for me, but I’m happy to report he did very well on the plane. He’s a natural born jetsetter! As for blogging, I had to pause for a bit because the move was a much bigger deal than I anticipated. Emotionally, psychologically and physically. But this blog is my passion and I could not wait to get back to it!
There was no better occasion than a trip I made back to Panama three weeks ago with Chanel for the launch of their Coco Beauty Club in Casco Viejo. It was an ephemeral space in a beautiful house on Avenida A, where you could go and get your makeup and nails done with all the latest Chanel beauty product launches. There were also lectures, workshops and panels where one could go learn about beauty techniques and tips from both experts and real people. There was also, of course, one hell of a party! I got to catch up with many friends from Panama and elsewhere, as Chanel also invited other bloggers from Latin America, including my dear Atenas from Honduras/Dominican Republic and Amelia from Colombia. I also met Nane from Costa Rica and fell in love with her style! In between all the fun events, I was able to squeeze in some time to shoot a few outfits. We were staying at the American Trade Hotel in Plaza Herrera, so for this Nanushka look I thought it would be fun to walk across the plaza over to Fonda Paraíso; a newly opened restaurant and bar with the cutest decor—a mashup between Memphis and Tropicalia that was a great “more is more” kind of backdrop for my dotted ensemble. Stay tuned for more on the Coco Beauty Club—and of course more outfits, art, shopping, travel, design and all things A Constellation!
