International Swim Fashion Week, Curaçao

Passed weekend I made it to International Swim Fashion Week which was held on on our beautiful island of Curaçao. It was a very fun event, well organized, beautiful girls and cool designs. Hopefully with events like these our tiny Island will be put on the map in the fashion industry.
Below are some of the shots I captured (with IPhone6).
The first show was Sirenes De SoleilA French-American and Colombian fashion duo, doesn't that sounds like a fashion match made in the swimwear industry...
The second show was Island State is an Australian swim and resort wear label. Founded in 2013 by a couple who have a mutual love of travel, lazy days on the beach and photography. 
Lots of color and nice beach cover-ups...
This (below) was my favorite! Colorful and a gorgeous design (look at the back!)
The third designer was Canadian and was not sure if this was swimwear or something you would wear in your boudoir. She had some funky stuff...

DIY; Candy Filled Diamond

 Let me start by saying; I despise Valentine's day, on the other hand, I love crafts and candy! So for those with either a Valentine in mind or a sweet tooth and an itch for crafts, I made this candy filled diamond that would make a perfect Valentine gift.
I started by saving and printing "this" template
Then trace on your valentine paper, fold lines and glue the spots that I marked black (for you to see).
 Fill with your favorite candy, close it up...
Et Voila! Your Candy Filled diamond ready to gift

Holiday Gift Guide; Curaçao Edition

The Holidays are about to come up, so are the parties, the get togethers and the gifts. A few cute gift ideas while supporting our local artists and small business owners on the beautiful island.
Check out "Chincho la Coquetta" for tropical inspired, hand-made ceramic jewelry dishes and other cute gifts. Saturday December 20th there is a trunk show where you can purchase or you can send her a private msg on Facebook for custom orders in the future.
 Next is for the ones that like to pamper themselves. "Naturals Curacao" has beautiful, natural products. Created and packaged in Curaçao. I fell in love with the limited edition "Sweet Honey Scrub" and was happy to hear that due to a great demand it is going to stay in the collection! For scrubs, soaps, butters and all kinds of oils pass by the store or visit their website.
 And last are the hip hype, shiny tattoos. Perfect for this island lifestyle, beautiful on bronzed skin, awesome for the holiday parties! Get your unique designs at "Fin & Fintage" if you missed it at the pop-up markets, send Fin&Fintage a msg on Facebook and you will get them one way or another!

From the Kitchen; Easy-peasy Pumpkin Hand-pies

Ok just a quickie before the holidays! It's for the busy-bees or the undomestic-divas. A cheat to make a scrumptious holiday dessert.
 What you need;
- Store bought pie crust
- Can of pumpkin puree
- Pumpkin spice
- Cream of coconut
- Cool Whip
- Brown sugar

1. Roll out your pie crust and with a cookie cutter cut circles 
2. Prep your pumpkin puree with the pie spice and brown sugar (taste and add till satisfied).
3. Drop a spoon-full of pumpkin filling (depending on the width of your circle)
4. cover with another circle and close with a fork. Cut an X on the top
Don't forget to pre-heat the oven.
Pop them in for +/- 15 mins or until golden
In the mean time, mix the coconut cream, but just the white solid bit not the oil. To separate this let is stand for a bit. Add pumpkin spice to your liking. When mixed well spoon it through cool whip. Warning! This stuff is deadly delicious!! 
Et Voila! Add a dollop of your coconut spiced, whipped-cream and devour!

Layering in the Sun


With fall nearing to an end and winter approaching, I think back at layering fashion in the cold. Living on an island with a 30*C average, it is very unlikely to layer. However I figured a fun different way to wear items I already own, is to layer.
Now you could always throw on a khaki trench coat (like "this" or "this") and a pair of chelsea boots. For now I will stick to my sandals and imagine what I would have worn if still living in a four season country.

 Jeans; Banana Republic (old, similar ones "here"), Round Sunglasses; "here" or "here"

Reinvent your closet; How to wear something old, this season

So I have been reinventing my clothes, always finding new ways to wear things you already own. This upcoming season you will see lots of sleeveless vests. I have had this little number for years, here on the tropical island you can wear it as a top. Instead of wearing it open, layered on top, you close it, worn on a midi skirt.
And what about a bustier you have had laying in the closet since last summer. Layer is with a simple white tee or if you dare even with a graphic tee, wear it with boyfriend jeans and sneakers for a laid back look or with a midi skirt and strap heels for more dressier look.
How would you wear old staple pieces this season?
Skirt; Custom-made, similar nice ones "here", "here" or "here", Vest; Old, similar "here", "here" or this "here", Sunglasses 1; unknown, similar "here" or "here"
