Vroom Vroom! What better way to celebrate The Ritz-Carlton coming to Mexico City in 2020 than at this year’s Formula 1 race? The Ritz-Carlton has partnered with Mercedes AMG Petronas to give us exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to the race! Traveling the world with The Ritz-Carlton has been a dream, and it feels extra special to go somewhere so close to my heart. My grandfather was born and raised in Mexico City, and all my life, I wanted to discover this very large city that is a huge part of my roots. Naturally, I am drawn to the city’s colorful streets, music, and flavorful spices. Mexico City feels like one big familia. I could really feel the heartbeat of it here at the Formula 1 racetracks. You could see how much love and teamwork goes into such a big event. It’s a pretty incredible sport that celebrates passion and togetherness. From the sounds of the mariachi band singing and dancing to the screeching cars going at lightning speed, this trip to Mexico City made me feel alive. You’ll want to come back more to discover more art and amazing culinary experiences like a cooking class at Sobremesa which we had the pleasure of doing so with Formula 1 driver Esteban Guttierez, or an inspiring walk through the Museo de Arte Moderno. There is art and new friendships to be made all around this city. It’s time I brush up on my Spanish before my next visit. And what better reason to come back than to visit the new The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City

// Olay Retinal 24 night serum, night moisturizer, and night eye cream // 

I decided to give retinol a go for the very first time with Olay’s Retinol 24 collection. I’m so excited to share that retinol is finally attainable, affordable, and actually super gentle thanks to Olay. Retinol is something I would hear my mom ordering as a prescription on the phone and that was all I knew about it. It sounded intense, too irritating, and just something hard to get a hold of. But I knew it was coveted. The secret to everyone’s anti-aging obsession. Olay’s Retinol 24 collection, featuring a night serum, moisturizer, and eye cream, has completely changed the way I look at this powerful ingredient. Plus, it’s a lot easier to get a hold of! For 4 weeks, I tried the night serum and fell madly in love it. In just after 24 hours, I noticed my skin already feeling firmer, and with time, any dark spots from the summer sun have completely faded. That’s what retinol does, it improves your skins textures and brightens it. The Olay Retinol 24 night serum has changed the way I look at skincare, and it’s probably the most important part of my nightly skincare routine! It’s potent and provides 24 hour hydration. Retinol is proven to brighten the skin and improve fine lines and wrinkles. Luckily, retinol doesn’t have to feel scary anymore, and I feel a lot more educated this ingredient. I feel I’m getting closer and closer to my skin goals. Now aging is one less thing to worry about. It keeps working, all day long.
