ShoppingTips - The Stylish Tourist

Candice Swanepoel for Vogue Australia
It has been awhile since I was in brand new lands that called upon my curious instincts, thus, requiring me to be turn into a tourist. But, alas it happened! While I prefer to just hang with locals doing their regular activities, my trip down to Panama clamored for discovery (I mean growing up in Honduras I heard this was the country that did not enjoy being part of Central America and therefore earned a "too cool for us reputation"). So before we departed I came up with the perfect outfit for those days of walking, learning, whilst remaining true to your stylish self!

1. Crop top: choose fitted to show off gym results or looser to graze the skirt.
2. Midi Skirt: this is literally the most comfortable bottom to wear! Shorts and pants can stick to legs when sweaty and mini skirts have a tendency to fly up when windy.
3. Flat T-strap sandal: this is a classic shape which you could wear with any outfit. I also love a classic gladiator but when these have too many bells and whistles they tend to ruin the more feminine outfits.

RecipeTime - Baked Tilapia, Oven Roasted Potatoes & Asparagus

The result of the recipes below served for
New Year's Eve dinner by moi!
I just got back from Panama and enjoyed an incredible amount of seafood whilst there. There are so many health benefits found in seafood but it is also incredibly delicious. The meal below has become my go to homemade treat in the passed few months. So, though New England is blisteringly cold at the moment, lets eat as if we were enjoying the sun near the equator!

The potatoes take the longest to cook so lets begin there...
