Bohemian Sunset

There is a popular saying that goes: "Better late then never", well, this is a perfect situation in which it can be applied. Months ago one of my best friends, Giannina, Charleen(from The Broke Girls) and I went to the first edition of Bohemian Sunset. For those who do not know what Bohemian Sunset is, I'll just say it is a collision of young talent. This activity emphasises in exposing young talents: musicians, painters, designers, magazine owners, and of course, fashion bloggers. Amazing right? YEAH!
When we got to Caguas Botanic Garden we couldn't be more amazed by the scenery; there were trees, and flowers and fountains, people giving free red velvet, vanilla, chocolate, lime cupcakes(craving one so badly right now). After a quick stop by the cupcake station we found ourselves in front of a beautiful lake surrounded by painters, musicians, FOOD, sangria, and a beautiful fashion show by the uprising designer Alejandro Antonio. It was all done perfectly clean. So dear reader, I encourage you to go the next edition of Bohemian Sunset, trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Oh, the streets of Cartagena!

Loving my Colombian Sandals.

This beautiful lady is a living historical and cultural heritage of Cartagena.

For the laidback days in Cartagena.


Silleteros parade.

A major event is the Desfile de Silleteros, a colourful spectacle of chairs embellished with splendid flower arrangements. 

In front of El peñol de Guatapé.

On top of El peñol de Guatapé and a breathtaking view.

Colourful doors in Guatapé

I must be honest and admit that my recent trip to Colombia exceeded all my expectations and thoughts I had before. When it comes to friendly people, colourful villages, modern skyscrapers, amazing temperatures and some not-so amazing, delicious food, endless landscapes and exquisite craftsmanship, Colombia is the answer. There was nothing that made me miss my island, do not mis-interpret me, I would never change Puerto Rico for anything, but the reality is that both cultures have many things in common, from the cultural to the culinary. so If by any chance you are doubting a trip to Colombia, don't, you'll thank me later.
