Pearl Farmers Market [Travel & Eat]


If you are in San Antonio you should definitely visit Pearl Farmers Market. It's fun for the whole family, including your pets. The Farmers Market is open from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Sundays. You can find from delicious artisan food to homemade soap, and of course fresh organic produce. I've only been twice and both times I thoroughly enjoyed it. There is live music, great food, drinks and many awesome things to buy. 

You MUST try the empanadas Chilenas from Yapa, the tacos and sangria combo from NAO, the vanilla-cinnamon pecans from Al's Gourmet Nuts...and I could keep on going, but it will be better if you taste it for yourself.

We had a blast! Specially our pooch Spaghetti. Don't delay your trip to the Farmers Market, while you are having fun you will also be supporting local businesses.

Pearl Farmers Market is located at 303 Pearl Parkway, Suite 300 San Antonio, Texas 78215. For more information visit Pearl Farmers Market.

Dress+Sneakers for Summer [Steal]

converse

I believe at times comfort comes before looks, that is why today I'm posting this super cute and comfortable outfit. I recently bought a pair of chucks and wanted to wear them everywhere. I won’t deny it, wearing sneakers is always a great idea, especially if you are traveling and walking around all day. I always keep a jacket handy because Texas weather can be unpredictable. We haven't had sun in a while so I decided to wear a striped dress + sneakers and tied my denim jacket around my waist. I am obsessed with this denim jacket, it's a fashion staple that will always be around. The Converse sneakers are also classic so I consider them a steal, which you must have!

Skittles Infused Vodka [Drink]



Last weekend my boyfriend came back from Las Vegas with only 2 big bags of skittles as his total winnings. Both bags were opened so he put them in a cookie jar. Every time I saw the cookie jar the skittles will scream; "eat me", as I was eating them, I realized he had a big bottle of Vodka in the freezer and decided to make 2 small shots of our favorite flavors, strawberry and orange. I left them infuse for 24 hours. The following day we had strawberry and orange skittle vodka. We mixed it with some berry juice and the results were AMAZING! That day we found ourselves infusing all the flavors. 
Now, I want to share with you guys how to infuse your own skittles Vodka in a few steps.  

Ingredients:

  • Big bag of Skittles (14 Oz)
  • Big bottle of Vodka
  • Containers 
  • Coffee Filters 





Step 1
Separate Skittles by color and place them inside the containers. 




Step 2. 
Add 4 shots of Vodka to each container and shake, shake, shake SeƱora. 




Step 3
Let them infuse for 24 hours. Since we only had 4 containers, we infused the sour apple and lemon together. 



Step 4. 
Filter them to remove gum (white paste). Use the coffee filters. Try to filter it twice.




Step 5. 
Make a shot or drink and enjoy! I made a shot with the orange vodka and berry juice. I call it Berry Orange.

Anna's Frida Kahlo Collection [Steal]


Undoubtedly Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists. Her life and courage along with her passion for art amazes me. She is one of the most recognized Mexican artists, of which I take pride in, given my heritage.  

Not too long ago my sister-in-law gifted me a extremely cute Frida Kahlo t-shirt! She embellished it by adding gems and sequins, which made it look even more appealing. I fell in love with it! It's very colorful and perfect for summer.

She also makes adorable t-shirts, dresses and onesies for little girls, they are the cutest! Well, the good news is that you can have one too! Her prices range from $25-$30 (plus shipping). What a steal!
