Staycations not only refresh me mentally, but physically. Waking up in a new part of town with a fresh copy of The Times. Taking a run outside in an area I wouldn’t normally venture out to. Getting in that few extra hours to snooze in your bath robe after what felt like a work week of 7 am call times. It’s being able to disconnect, retreat, and give yourself a little love in what feels like getting caught up in a city rush. The real me would love to stick in my yoga pants anytime of the week post-workout, but this time, I packed along a perfect dress-over-blouse situation for that sudden urge to go dancing. Staycations are a time for me, as a beauty lover, to also dig into my beauty dresser and whip out some new products to test. I never wear any makeup on the weekends…it’s so important to let my skin breathe and treat it with a little extra care. With every getaway, I give myself a new scent and memory. This time, my scent was By Terry’s Baume de Rose. Here are 3 amazing products that might fit for what your skin is really craving right now. That combined with a few extra hours of laying horizontal or outside on the move, leaves me glowing.
As you know, I love creating, editing, and filming my own videos. It’s my new form of story-telling. Maybe it’s because I love movement. Like seeing the wind blowing the hair across someone’s face… hearing a new little tune…reconnecting to a moment. I love to see what’s really goes on behind that photo. My brand new YOUTUBE displays all the moods I create with every place I travel, with every project I’m working on, and with every wild #SUAREZSISTERS adventure. It’s time to take a second and subscribe to my tube…YOUTUBE.
living room sessions. What song do you want to hear me sing next?
I love to combine my Chinese and Hispanic upbringing. It’s unique,and somehow it gets incorporated in so many things that I do. I love representing that unconventional woman, that takes inspiration from all over the world. I got full creative control in my whole Don Julio 70 campaign. Take a peek:

When it comes to what I wear at home, I go for the bare minimal. A classic tank. The comfiest drop crotch pants. And triangle bra. All in my favorite neutrals. Mint. Nude. Heather grey. A lot of my lingerie and loungewear is from Urban Outfitters because they have so many amazing colors and soft fabrics. Easy pieces to cuddle in and watch a good movie with. It’s funny because this look easily transitions into a yoga stretch session on my deck. Time to order take-out. Breathe in. Breathe out.
