Palomino: Rustic European Cusine

I love a good dinner out, but then again who doesn't? Needless to say I'm always thrilled when I can partner with local places to feature their dinning menu on the blog (truly is my favorite part of blogging besides styling, yeah I'm a total foodie at heart!). Now truth be told if it was up to Brain that's what I would be blogging about, delicious food and charming restaurants!! Well what's best is when we can combine work with pleasure and call our dinner out an actual date! Last Friday we went to Palomino an upscale italian chain that serves heavenly thin-crust pizzas and other enticing Italiano style dishes!! Palomino is located in the heart of downtown Indy in a busy corner. They have such an authentic feel and a lovely setting, one that makes…

The Hampton Social (last chance to enter H&T giveaway!!)

I was really looking forward to write this post as this place is sooooo worth a whole post of its own! Thanks to Andrea who pushed for a visit there we were able to come together and not only shoot at The Hampton Social but have lunch and drinks there too!! Courtesy of the lovely ladies of Holly & Tanager. The place's atmosphere is very nautical and feels right out of a Ralph Lauren ad. "The Hampton Social, found in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, IL, first opened its doors in August 2015. The lifestyle concept - owned, operated and designed by restaurateur Brad Parker - is a restaurant hotspot that evokes East Coast living in every aspect." - THS website located at River North 353 Hubbard St. Sunset Beach (el jimador tequila, peloton…

Le Cirque du Soleil

Last week was my bff's b-day. Her plans? Go to cirque du soleil...my reaction? Yessss please!! 🙃 We had a great time at the show and I had to snap a few pics inside the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The show we saw was Toruk , based on James Cameron's Avatar. I wish I could post videos but I don't want to get in trouble with copyrights!! So here's a few images of the show and us!! Time with friends and family is so precious and so scarce now-a-days for me that I truly love every little opportunity I have to catch up! Afterwards we headed to a pub in town and finished the celebration with everyone else  🎉 For my look I went real casual. Jeans, hi-tops and a rain jacket since it was sprinkleing! Kris also…

Luxe Fashion Show

Race season is officially over here in the city known for its race history. As a good Brazilian I do enjoy the race - especially when we have amazing Brazilian drivers competing, hello Tony and Helio - but besides the race itself (and the beers and burgers) I love seeing the tourists in town, the buzz, the fashion industry throwing the coolest events and just seeing everyone gathering together makes the city look and feel so alive!!! We started the night having Josef Newgarden (who took 3rd place in Indy 500 historical race) over at Saks taking pics and giving out autographs. Then I met my plus one Maria and headed to Napolese where Simon Mall and GQ Magazine were hosting a cocktail party before the big show! May I add I've been to quite…
