Fabulous Friday – Wedding dresses

 

Mexican high fashion is hardly known in the US. Yet, along with the much praised evolution of the “new” Mexican cuisine and its very talented exponents, the country’s fashion scene is now coming into its own. I’ve been exposed to it through my client, Velas Resorts, that  has featured runway shows and popup boutiques of two of the leading fashion designers, Alejandro Carlin and Benito Santos.

It tastes a little like bread pudding, but has a bit of a crunch on top and is not so sweet as the glazed donuts. Just right in my book. Then it’s topped with housemade vanilla ice cream with caramel syrup.  Read Full Post & Comments »

Fabulous Friday: Inflatable Paddleboard

 

Want to try paddleboarding on holiday or in “our backyard” – the Beach, and don’t want to have to lug an 11 foot board?
