Guys, the weather has been crazy lately, One day I need to bundle up and the other is nice and sunny. I'm really not complaining about the sunny days, in fact I'm trying to enjoy them as much as I can. Last week we had an unexpected 80 degrees weather and we did an umpromptu trip to the lake, we usually plan our visits there in advance and make sure to stock up in our favorite snacks and drinks, but this time that wasn't the case. That doesn't mean we wen't empy handed , luckily I had all the ingredients to make one of my favorite Mexican Snak. Can you guess what it is?




Yup, Corn in a Cup! This recipe is really quick , easy to make in bulk to share with friends, and oh so tasty. I swear it almost taste like the ones from my favorite "esquite" place in Mexico.

Before we move on to the recipe I invite you to participate on the sweepstakes "Go Native with el Yucateco®". Go Native, is all about celebrating all the ways people enjoy nature, outdoors, friends, family, and El Yucateco®. You can win all kinds of prizes that help you to discover new places. How exciting!

To the perfect corn in a cup you just need to mix in a big bowl the following ingredients:

1 bag (16oz) of precooked corn
3 tablespoons of mayo
1tablespoon of salted butter
1/4 cup of cotija cheese (you can use parmesan cheese too).
2 tablespoons of El Yucateco® Red Chile Habanero
1/2 lime juice
salt to the taste
OPTIONAL:
1 tablespoon of sour cream (add this is you want it extra creamy)
1/2 cup of water (skip this if you prefer your corn dry)


After I mix everything I like to sprinkle some more cheese and Salsa on top! Please tell me that doesn't sound delicious!!! my mouth is watering right now. 






You can always try with other varierty of El Yucateco® to increase the spiciness of the Corn. For a milder flavor I recommend El Yucateco® Chipotle or El Yucateco® Black Label Reserve.  I prefer El Yucateco®  Hot sauce because its ingredients come from Field to Bottle. It includes no artificial colors, but the same great taste that makes it the King of Flavor since 1968. I also love  that the bottle as he perfect size to carry it in your purse, you can take it anywhere with you!

You can find those and all the other El Yucateco® Salsas at the Salsa & condiments aisle at Jewel-osco.

Lingerie inspired pieces are not new for the fahsion world, but they are kind of new in my wardrobe. It all started with this "Teddy" style bodysuit , then the silk cami came into my life and it's one of my current favorite pieces. It is effortlessy chic, prefect for day or night, and it can be worn multiple ways. In fact I'm wearing this exact same top on my last post.That's how much I like it!

Las prendas de ropa de estilo lenceria no son nada nuevo en el mundo de la moda pero si lo son en mi guardarropa. Hasta hace poco me sentia un poco incomoda de experimentar con ese tipo de prendas pero le di la oportunidad a este body y todo cambio. Ahora las camisitas lenceras son una de mis prendas favoritas. Me encantan porque son muy versatiles, se ven bastante chic, y pueden usarse de distintas maneras. De hecho en uno de mis post pasados de hace poco llevo este mismo top ya se dieron cuenta?

El pueblo magico de sayulita



Sayulita, Nayarit is a laid back surfer little town located 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. It was my first stop during my last trip to Mexico, and I stayed there for a day but that is all the time I needed to fall in love with it. 
--
Sayulita es un pueblito "surfero" localizado a 25 millas al norte de Puerto Vallarta, esta fue mi primera parada durante mi ultimo viaje a Mexico. Estuve ahi por apenas un dia, pero ese tiempo fue suficiente para enamorarme del lugar


The town is known for its hippy vive and colorful atmosphere. Most of the buildings in the area are painted in bright colors , and you'll find colorful artisany all around the town. It is nearly impossible not feeling happy and relaxed in this place
--
Este pueblo es conocido por su ambiente "hippy" y colorido. La mayor parte de las construcciones estan pintadas de colores brillantes y decoradas con artesania local, la cual tambien se puede encontrar en diferentes puestitos alrededor del lugar. Es imposible no sentirse feliz y relajado ahi!







The town is really small and everything is within walking distance, but some locals and tourists use golf carts to go around the town. We also saw some bettles, kombis and jeeps, customized with bright colors of course.
--
El pueblo es tan chiquito que se puede recorrer todo caminando, aunque algunos locales y turistas prefieren usar carritos de golf para transportarse. Tambien se pueden encontrar vochitos, combis y jeeps totalmente customizados con colores brillantes que combinan perfecto con el resto del pueblo.




There are over 100 restaurants, coffee shops, and food stands in sayulita. You can find pretty much everything here, from traditional mexican food to vegan restaurants.  As soon as we arrived we had lunch at Yeikame we're we had mole made from scratch, mushroom tacos with handmade blue corn tortillas, and sopa de tortilla. Everything was delicious and we were full for the entire day! The next morning we had breakfast at ChocoBanana where they have an extensive menu of mexican and american breakfast options. One thing I noticed is that most places won't take cards so you have to make sure to take cash everywhere you go.
--
En Sayulita hay mas de 100 restaurantes, cafeterias y puestos de comida, se puede encontrar de todo aqui, desde comida tradicional mexicana hasta restaurantes veganos. En cuanto llegamos fuimos a comer al restaurante Yeikame, en donde pedimos enmoladas, tacos de champinon de tortilla de maiz azul hecha a mano y sopa de tortilla. Las porciones eran enormes y quedamos llenas por todo el dia. A la manana siguiente fuimos a desayunar al restaurante ChocoBanana, ahi tienen un menu con una gran variedad de opciones de desayunos mexicanos y americanos. Una cosa que note es que la mayor parte de establecimientos no aceptan tarjetas asi que es importante llevar efectivo a todos lados.







There was an hurican duting the time I was there, so the day was cloudy with light rain but that definitely didn't stop anyone (nor me!) from spending the day chillin' at the beach. Cloudy and everything, the view was beautiful and I can't wait to be there again in a sunny day. They say sunsets look stunning there.
--
Habia un huracan cerca del area cuando yo estuve en Sayulita, asi que el dia estaba bastante nublado y con poquita lluvia, eso no detuvo a nadie para pasar el dia en la playa, nublado y todo la vista era bellisima, definitivamente tengo que volver y disfrutar de un dia soleado en esa playa, ademas dicen que las puestas de sol se ven hermosas desde ahi.




Sayulita is a surfers paradise, and you can take surf lessons there if you're a begginer or book a day trip with other experienced surfers. If you're like me you'll probably skip all of that and just lounge in the beach with a michelada on hand to watch the surfers do their thing. I swear is just as fun!
--
Sayulita es un paraiso "surfero" , las olas de la bahia son perfectas para principiantes, y hay muchos lugares que ofrecen clases de surf. Los "surferos" con mas experiencia pueden ir a un tour por un dia a alguna playa cercana con olas mas grandes. Las personas como yo preferimos saltarnos todo eso y mejor sentarnos en la playa a ver a los otros surfear, de preferencia con una michelada en la mano. Les prometo que es igual de divertido!






There is a turtle camp in the north side of the beach in sayulita, we woke up very early the next morning and we got to see people fetching the eggs to keep them safe. Every night volunters are needed to help release the hatched babies.
--
Hay un campamento tortuguero en el lado norte de la playa. Nos despertamos super temprano para ir ahi y pudimos ver algunas personas recogiendo los huevos para llevarlos a un lugar seguro. Cada noche se puede ser voluntario para ayudar a los bebes tortuga a llegar al mar.














By the way on our way there we found this structure decorated with lost sandals and old surf boards. Isn't it cool? Locals put a lot of effort keeping this town clean, and you'll see people picking up garbage from the beach all the time. Make sure to take a plastic bag with you when you go to the beach, that will be so much easier to clean after you when you leave. 
--
En el camino al campo tortugero encontramos esta estructura hecha con sandalias perdidas y tablas de surf viejas, esta padrisima! Una cosa que note es que las personas que viven en sayulita ponen mucho esfuerzo en mantener el sitio limpio, especialmente la playa, y todo el tiempo puedes encontrar gente recogiendo basura. Recomiendo que al ir a la playa lleves bolsas de plastico contigo para que sea mas facil limpiar tu espacio al irte.




 Days in Sayulita are meant to be spend at the beach, nights are for hitting the center of town and visit one of the many bars in the area. Nighlife in sayulita is quiet, but the atmosphere in the bars is great to have a conversation with friends enjoying a drink ... or four.
 --
Los dias en Sayulita se pasan en la playa, y las noches en uno de los tantos bares o restaurantes de la ciudad. Eso si, la vida noctura es tranquila, es ideal para tomar algunas bebidas conversando con amigos.








 And that's it for this post! I hope that my pictures helped you see the beauty of Sayulita through my lens.

Must-have fall jewelry

Guys it's officially happening ... the warm days are gone and it's time to ditch the sandals and shorts and pull out our cardis and boots. A new season always involve a little wardrobe revamping but one thing most of us forget to change up is our jewelry which is equally important. During this season I prefer minimalistic jewelry to balance out the bulkiness of the rest of my outfits. Scroll down to the end of this post to see some of my favorite jewelry choices for this season.

Chicos el verano se acabo (al menos aqui) y ya es hora de sacar los sueteres y botas otra vez. Con el comienzo de otra temporada ya todos sabemos que hay que cambiar el estilo y renovar nuestro guardarropa con prendas mas calientitas, pero a la mayoria se nos olvida que tambien es buena idea cambiar nuestra joyeria, despues de todo los accesorios son "la cereza en el pastel" del outfit. Durante esta temporada yo prefiero los accesorios delicados para crear un balance con las prendas mas voluminosas como son los abrigos y chamarras. Al final de este post les muestro alguas de mis piezas de joyeria favoritas para esta temporada.


Watch/reloj (c/o) : Nixon Timeteller | Jeans (thrifted) : Levis - similar | Cardigan : Similar - similar | Top : Similar - similar | Bracelet/ pulsera (c/o) : WorldFinds | Shoes/ zapatos : similar - similar | Stud Earrings/aretes (c/o): Freshtrends 




 Studed earrings are definitely my favorite. These are from FreshTrends and they are less than $10! Fresh trends also have affordable cartilague piercings which are also a great option if you want to be bold.


The bracelet is from Worldfinds a brand of ethically-sourced handmade jewelry & accessories. As simple as this bracelet is, it sure makes an statement.


Finally, I love an small watch! the one I'm wearing today is the Nixon Timeteller 37 mm, perfect for my tiny wrist.
